The Dallas Builders Association will hold a one-day Parade of Homes™ presented by STELLAR April 7, showcasing five high-end custom homes in Dallas. Featured homes are situated near the Bluffview neighborhood in West Dallas and Lakewood near White Rock Lake.

“Each home in this scattered site, self-guided tour will be fully decorated and landscaped, featuring the very finest in innovative home building and custom craftsmanship,” said Dallas BA President Alan Hoffmann of Hoffmann Homes. “Visitors will be able to tour these luxury homes, experiencing state-of-the-art technology, energy efficiency and architectural design.”

The Parade benefits Operation FINALLY HOME, an organization that provides custom mortgage-free homes to combat-wounded U.S. military veterans and their families. The Dallas BA has just broken ground on its sixth Operation FINALLY HOME project and has a seventh planned for later this year.

Participating builders are Classic Urban Homes, Thomas Development and Construction LLC, Alexander Hunt Distinct Homes, Prospect Homes and Richard Miller Custom Homes.

Architectural designs include minimalist farmhouse, transitional, modern dogtrot and warm modern. “Today’s homeowners desire a balance between large open spaces to spend time with friends and family and individual retreats that offer privacy and relaxation,” notes Parade Chairman Michael Turner of Classic Urban Homes. “This is a universal theme throughout these five homes.”

Turner points out that today’s families are very environmentally aware. “Excellent energy efficiency is a given, and Parade attendees are going to see lots of natural light, abundant use of glass, expansive outdoor living areas,” he said. One of the homes is carved into the side of a hill overlooking a stream; another boasts a commercial water filtration system; a third offers a unique dogtrot breezeway that connects the main house with separate guest quarters.

Additional highlights showcased in the Parade are powered shades, a wood-burning oven, custom cabinetry, steam showers, LED lighting, reclaimed wood features, a spectacular glass-topped wine room and full home automation.

The Parade of Homes™ will be open April 7 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tickets are $25 for ages 12 and older and are available at ParadeofHomesDallas.com. Tour maps will be emailed to ticket holders 48 hours prior to the event, and will be issued wristbands that must be worn while visiting the homes.
