AV Homes Takes the Spring Parade of Homes by Storm!

AV Homes has done it again, taking the 2015 Spring Parade of Homes by storm. Presented by the Greater Orlando Builder’s Association, this prestigious program includes judges from the local builder community such as architects, fellow builders, developers, interior designers and marketing gurus. One of the highest awards a builder can receive on the local level, the Parade of Homes is revered for selecting the best of the best in home designs. Without further ado, we at AV Homes are proud to present our First and Merit Award Winning model homes!

First Place Awards

In the Single Family Under $300,000 category, the Calto from the Classic Collection recognized with a First Place award. A lovely two bedroom, two bath home, this home was designed with a study off the foyer plus a personal office. Great spaces that fulfill a variety of homeowner’s tastes, these rooms are great to have in a home. Awarded the blue ribbon for outstanding feature by judges, the main living area of the Calto is just flawless.

Fitted with a closet, the flex room can be used as a third bedroom, craft room or entertainment enclave.

Decked out in tile walls with mosaic inserts, a glass frame and two shower heads plus a practical seat, the blue ribbon Outstanding Feature is the large walk-in shower taking up the entire length of the bathroom wall.
