Here’s a closer look at one of the four homes included in this year’s Parade of Homes:
The Timbercrest (Home No. 1)
According to the Parade of Homes website, the use of natural stones, cedar siding and large timber supporting details gives The Timbercrest home a timeless elegance and strength, “ensuring it will withstand the test of time.”
Each individual room in The Timbercrest is said to carry a classic style, thoughtfully designed and decorated to enhance each detail. The home’s great room has tall vaulted ceilings, beam accents and a large fireplace, and provides a gathering place for friends and family alike. The large open kitchen and nook area offers a gourmet experience to cooks and those enjoying some food.
In addition to the master bedroom that is tucked behind the great room, the home offers two additional bedrooms downstairs, and the upstairs has two more bedrooms with small private offices and baths. According to the website, the highlight of the upstairs area is the large bonus/entertainment room, complete with surround sound, high-definition projection and screen that will make any night a movie night.
The home also offers a large back patio, complete with timber beams and a large wood fireplace. The patio also offers a built-in 42-inch Wolf Grill and serving counters.
According to the website, Everest Construction has been building custom luxury homes for more than a decade in Clark County and surrounding areas. They take pride in creating homes that are “as beautiful to look at as they are comfortable to live in.”
