LifeStyle Home Builders Honored at Richmond Parade of Homes
LifeStyle Home Builders was recently honored at the Home Builders Association of Richmond’s 68th Annual Parade of Homes Awards Breakfast. The 2019 Parade features 73 homes built by 29 builder members, and the homes were judged by builders, designers, realtors and other building industry professionals outside of the Richmond market.
LifeStyle Home Builders, a locally owned builder based in Midlothian, received five awards on three entries, including two Silver Awards for their entries at Holloway at Wyndham Forest and The Highlands Glen Kilchurn.
“It is satisfying to receive this recognition and praise from our peers in the industry,” states Kevin McNulty, president of LifeStyle Home Builders. “Building a new home requires teamwork and a lot of talented people are involved in delivering these homes into the marketplace. I am proud to work with such a great group of people who are passionate about what they do and take pride in their work.
During this year’s Parade, LifeStyle Home Builders is showcasing three homes designs: the Bronte, the Sutherland and the Olivia.
Holloway at Wyndham Forest | Henrico County
10700 Balvis Hollow Court, Glen Allen
The Bronte Model Home received Best Curb Appeal and the Silver Award in its division. It is a five-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, two-car-garage home with 3,439 square feet.
The first floor has a study and a separate dining room with decorative ceiling. The beautifully open chef’s kitchen, morning room and family room, and all of the space offers plenty of natural light. There is also a first-floor guest room with a dedicated bathroom, which provides a nice option for families with either long-term guests or parents living with them full-time.
Upstairs, the owner’s suite has two walk-in-closets and a long double vanity top crafted in marble, soaking tub and generous shower with a transom window for additional natural light. There are also three large bedrooms, a laundry room and a finished bonus room.
Architecturally, the Bronte has three exterior options – the classic traditional, the craftsman and the farmhouse—all of which create a relaxing, welcoming entrance to the home.
“This is one of our more popular floor plans because the plan itself is designed to be a great family home and is well-suited for multi-generational living,” explains McNulty.
Holloway at Wyndham Forest is located off I-295 (Nuckols Road) in Glen Allen – one of the most sought-after localities in Henrico County due to its convenient location and top-rated school system. Amenities include walking trails, sidewalks, a multi-use field, a playground, community garden, and it is convenient to Short Pump shopping and restaurants.
The Highlands Glen Kilchurn | Chesterfield County
12612 Kernmack Drive, Chesterfield
The Sutherland Model Home received the Best Curb Appeal and the Silver Award in its division. It is a four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, two-car garage home with 2,839 square feet.
The foyer’s vaulted ceilings create not only a dramatic entrance, but a large sense of space for this house. The first floor features a vast owner’s suite with two walk-in closets and a gorgeous master bath. There is a Quartz countertop vanity and a large decorative-tiled shower. The open-plan living area spreads out to include a family room, large morning room and a screened back porch. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with plenty of storage and food-prep space that includes a large island and farmhouse sink.
The family room and the grand entry foyer have an added sense of space as the ceilings soar to the second floor, where the bulk of the bedrooms are located. This is a home is well-suited for those who love large open spaces.
The Sutherland has three exterior architectural styles – the classic traditional, the craftsman and the Virginia vintage. “The exterior for our model at The Highlights is the craftsman style. The stone and shaker provide lots of texture which creates warmth and architectural interest – lending well to curb appeal,” notes McNulty.
The Highlands Glen Kilchurn is a master-planned golf course community located in Chesterfield with home sites from one to five acres. Amenities include 3,100 acres of serene, natural beauty with a 65-acre lake, 18-hole championship golf course, Country Club, a Junior Olympic swimming pool and fitness center and miles of walking paths and trails.
River Mill | Henrico County
10830 Porter Park Lane, Glen Allen
The Olivia Model Home received the Best Bath Award in its division. It is a four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, two-car garage home with 3,728 square feet.
This house combines cozy elements with smart home technology to create a home built for entertaining. The study, located just off the foyer, is ideal for a home office space but can also be used for a variety of purposes, depending on your needs. The spacious kitchen with a walk-in pantry extends into the morning room, and it also connects to the “grand” family room. The family room is separated by a double-sided fireplace where one side of this space is traditional, but the other is set up for entertaining – complete with a pool table and mini-bar.
The outdoor living space includes a beautiful screened porch and a paver patio with an outdoor fireplace. The mudroom off the garage has built-in cubbies and a small refrigerator, which is perfect for keeping cold drinks or your kids lunches handy before heading off to school.
Upstairs includes three bedrooms, the owner’s suite and a dedicated theater room with a big screen. And when you need to relax from entertaining, you can head up to the third floor to the yoga retreat.
The Best Bath award was earned by the master bath, which is an elegant space with a spa-like feel. The walk-in shower is a curb-less entry with decorative tile, floor-to-ceiling glass, rain showerhead and jet sprays. There is furniture-style vanity, an LED mirror and a plenty of natural light – without giving up privacy.
“The Olivia floor plan is a flexible plan with numerous ways to configure it depending on the needs of your family and what you are looking for,” explains McNulty.
River Mill is located near I-295 and I-95 in Glen Allen. This new community has a variety of products, styles and price points. Amenities include walking trails, play areas, clubhouse, pool and more.
