Home Builders’ 2012 Parade only one month away

By KERRI BARTLETTHome enthusiasts will have an opportunity to venture to the pastoral community of Kings’ Chapel in Arrington, Tenn. for the 2012 Parade of Homes, from Saturday, Oct. 6 until Sunday, Oct. 21 daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We are very excited to invite people to the beautiful community of Kings’ Chapel this fall to visit our Parade homes,” said David Crane, Parade of Homes chairman.

The Kings’ Chapel community was named for the historic chapel that still stands on its grounds, which was built in 1804 and visited by such historical figures as Andrew Jackson and Davy Crockett. A natural spring also runs through the area that served as a popular stopping point for many passing through Nashville during the city’s early days.

Today, the Kings’ Chapel community consists of 450 total lots and occupies 750 total acres with 50 percent of the acreage planned as green space. The development will go through a series of phases before all 450 lots are built and occupied, although 80 homes are occupied currently. The development consists of different sections with varying price points and square footage ranging from 2,800 to 3,500 and up in select locations. The most recent section is The Village with a starting point of $375,000, while other sections of the development will include homes with 2-acre lots priced up to a million dollars.

The six Parade showcase homes are located in a cul de sac on the Catherine’s Branch Court, ranging in price from $600,000 to $800,000. Ashby Communities, LLC, the Kings’ Chapel developer and host of the event, assembled a team of local builders including Aspen Construction, Inc., Norfolk Homes, Southern Heritage Company, Tradition Homes and Woodridge Homes.

John Zelenak, owner of Aspen Construction, Inc., shared that their showcase home that occupies lot 323 features four bedrooms and four and a half baths with just under 4,000 sq. ft.

“We build custom homes and I design the floor plans myself that are functional and aesthetic,” said Zelenak. “I put a lot of thought into designing the plan as if I were going to live in the home myself.”

Plans possess an open feel on the ground floor and have unique functional features such as the laundry room connected to the master bedroom. The exterior features a European-style elevation with tumbled brick and natural stone. Interior features include granite countertops throughout, maple-glazed cabinets, hammered copper farmhouse sink and natural stone in baths.

Tickets will be available at the gate. Admission is $12 per adult. Children age 12 and under are admitted free. The last tickets will be sold at 7 p.m. Realtors will get in free on Tuesdays with a business card.
