The 2009 Parade Of Homes is April 25th, 26th and the following weekend, May 2nd & 3rd from 12-5! For more details, visit Wilmington Cape Fear Homebuilders Association.
This year we have two entries: Tanyard Parish and a custom home client, The Robertie's. We would love for you to come visit us during the Parade and see these fabulous places in person!
Tanyard Parish is located in the Historic District in Downtown Wilmington and includes 9 exclusive residences with stunning views of the Cape Fear River! The building is historic in appearance, yet is newly constructed with all the modern amenities. Restaurants, shopping, museums, galleries, theaters & the Cape Fear Riverwalk is right outside the front door!
Located in Winding River Plantation in Brunswick County, The Robertie Residence is a 3100 square foot, two story home on pilings with a full garage and a large 3 season room on the back porch. This gorgeous house also boasts a "Green Certification Level of Silver" by the NAHB Research Center. This is achieved by earning points for environmentally friendly features installed throughout the the home. Examples of technology used to earn this recognition at the Robertie's: correct resourcing & sizing of all heating and cooling systems, instantaneous hot water heaters, icynene insulation, "Low VOC" paints and innovative gutter/landscaping irrigation techniques. Both submissions are excellent examples of our commitment to fine workmanship and attention to detail.
In our Renovations Division, Libby & Kyle are working on an incredible restoration on 10 South Fifth Street for Tom & Lucia Hughes, originally known as "The Williams House."
The 8400 square foot restoration includes: a new kitchen with tuscany tile ceiling, five fireplaces on the first floor alone, 4 new baths, a two story covered porch with a rooftop deck and a two story detached garage.

As construction continues, the home is starting to take shape and increase excitement about the beauty what will be the finished home for the Hughes. We are proud to be a part of this restoration and continue building the level of quality that Libby and Plantation are known for!
