Due to high readership about Cincinnati’s 2011 Homearama in West Chester, WestChesterBuzz.com will breakdown each of the featured homes in the show this week. Earlier this week, the Buzz featured the “Collina Bella Casa,” which is a 7,100-square foot home built by Daniels Hicks Homes, “The Augusta,” which was built by Justin Doyle Homes and is the show’s second largest home and is extremely energy efficient, and the “New Brunswick,” which is the largest home at the show that is currently for sale.
Today, the featured home is the one Homearama visitors are calling the best value.

Due to its location at the end of the street, the “Manchester” is typically the last home many of the Homearama visitors see at the show.
“This is one is the best in the show,” said Barb Gerth of Mt. Washington. “It is practical and it is the best value.”
The 4,700-square foot home features a master suite with a spacious bathroom and a large deck that runs off the kitchen.
The second floor was designed for the family’s three small children. Not only does each child have their own room, but there are two full bathrooms and a kids play area/media room (photo) on that level.
“A lot of people of come up to me and have told me that it is their most favorite home,” builder Jeff Wieland said. “I believe, that the reason why is because there is a more of personal touch to it. This home was built from scratch for the people, who we built it for, and people can relate to it.”
The home was built and sold for $672,000. It is the least expensive home at Homearama.
“With the way we operate, is that you bring us the budget, tell us what you are looking for and we will try to meet that,” Wieland said. “We want people to see that they don’t have to pay a lot of money to have a custom built home.”
Tomorrow, WestChesterBuzz.com will breakdown and provide a photo gallery of the “Kimberly Ann” built by Willig Greyston Custom Homes.
The 2011 edition of Homearama in West Chester opened June 11 and drew more than 5,000 people in its opening weekend. Crowds are expected to grow larger as the event gets closer to its ending date (June 26).
“Typically attendance grows as the show goes a long,” said Dan Dressman, executive director of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati. “Our last day is usually the busiest.”
Tickets for this year’s Homearama cost $13 at the gate or $11 at Greater Cincinnati area Kroger stores. Children 12 and under will be admitted free of charge if accompanied by an adult.
