Homes by Tradition builds some beautiful homes and they certainly have done it again with the Arlington model which is being shown in the Parade of Homes Spring Preview #141 in the Hampton Hills neighborhood located in northwest Plymouth Minnesota.
It’s my understanding that his home is currently sold but you could choose to have this home built by Homes by Tradition on a different lot in Hampton Hills or Spring Meadows where they also have some lots available.
There were a couple of things that really struck me as I viewed the home. There is a combination of old world charm combined with a light, bright open feeling. The curvature in the entries is very different than what one finds in most new homes today. That probably gives it the old world charm effect. The floor plan is open and I’m sure the paint colors along with the many windows allow for lots of natural sunlight. The home is good sized but not overly huge. The main floor master suite is a big draw I’ve been told and can see why.
What I wanted to call attention to was the striking nature of the lighting in this home. It’s absolutely stunning. Below are pictures so you can see them, but they really don’t do justice to the elegant, modern feel that they provide. They really are an outstanding complement to the rest of the design of the home and they go way beyond much of the standard lighting seen in so many of the new homes today. The lighting was done by Southern Lights located in Burnsville Minnesota.
Homes by Tradition and their lighting designer are to be commended for the choices they made. I suspect the lighting may have pushed the budget a bit but what a difference it can make in a home. A few thousand dollars in lighting can make a good home a spectacular home as long as the style works well with the rest of the home.
The rest of the home is just as beautiful and it’s no wonder the home sold during the first two weeks of the Parade of Homes. Learn more about Homes by Tradition or certainly stop out and see their new homes on display during the Parade of Homes in Hampton Hills which runs through April 1, 2012.
