We all want the home of our dreams, but when the The Parade of Homes ™ time of year arrives, there is an opportunity to see a home that truly is an American Dream Home, during it's public displayfrom April 26-May 4,2014.

Parade of Homes ™ will feature 56 homes this year in all shapes, sizes,colors and prices ranges, throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, with the American Dream Home being found in Nature Trail,a gated community located on nearly 750 acres, with more than half of those acres devoted to preservation and surrounded by preserved woodland areas.

"The people of Northwest Florida look forward to the Parade of Homes every year, said HBA President Newman Rodgers, of Newman Rodgers Construction. "It gives them the opportunity to see the latest in new home designs and amenities. "Our market is continuing to improve and it is certainly great to see a lot of people, who lost their jobs during the recession, back to work."

The American Dream Home design is a collaborative effort between Thomas Westerheim, of Westerheim Properties, and John Hattaway. of Hattaway Home Design along with contributions from Kay's Prestige Kitchen & Bath, Gene's Flooring, Superior Granite, Alpha Closets, Pensacola Energy, and Lee's Glass, among the vendors.

Dream Home builder Westerheim is pleased with the overall floor plan and says, "I believe the Dream Home captures the essence of being with family and friends, and living comfortably whether you're entertaining inside or outside in the courtyard. It has been an exciting project and I'm thankful for all the people who played key roles in making this home a reality."

The Dream Home has a bold design with a 9/12 roof pitch that incorporates Certain Teed Highland Slate precision color dimensional shingles.The beautiful exterior is complemented with warm Aristcraft Stone and textured BASF stucco that blends nicelywith three Side-entry, carriage-style garage doors, natural gas lanterns at the front entrance and down lighting on the exterior.

The home, designed for family needs and gracious entertaining, features 10-, 11- and 12-foot ceilings throughout with specialty ceilings in the dining room and master bedroom. Designer and recessed lighting accentuates multiple areas showcasing its beautiful wood floors, ceramic tile and decorative shower tiles. A natural gas Heat Glo Direct Vent Fireplace adds a warmth to the homes atmosphere, with high definition logs that provide a realistic flame and glow.

The home is 3,100 square feet of spacious living with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Equally impressive is the spacious brick-tile multi-purpose room that easily could be converted to a family game room, or the place to be on college football Saturdays.
