Due to high readership about Cincinnati’s 2011 Homearama in West Chester, WestChesterBuzz.com provided information and pictures of all five 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, the “New Brunswick,” which was built by Zaring Premier Homes and is the largest home at the show that is currently for sale, and the “Manchester,” which was built by Jack H. Wieland Builders Inc. and is being called by fans as the best value at Homearama.
Today, the featured home is the most energy efficient and grabs your attention before you set a foot in the door.
Willig Greystone Custom Homes presents the “Kimberly Ann”
When leaving the “Kimberly Ann” many Homearama visitors had many positive things to say about the exterior of the home.
“I really liked the craftsman style,” Barb Moringstar of Fairfield said of the exterior. “It reminds of an old-fashioned home. I want to say 1940s, when not all of the homes looked the same.”
The house may have a different feel to it since the builder is just starting build more homes in the suburbs after focusing most of their time in the city and in rural areas.
At last years’ Citi-Rama Home Show, Willig Greystone Custom Homes won “favorite” floor plan from the critics for a home under $220,000. It was that popular floor plan that the builder decided to use in the “Kimberly Ann.”
“It is an easy flowing floor plan,” said Dan Willig, president of Willig Greystone Custom Homes. “It makes people comfortable right when they step in the home.”
The first floor features three bedrooms, all tucked away, including a master bedroom with an extremely large bathroom and two spacious walk-in closets.
In the basement, the “Kimberly Ann” features a storm shelter and walkout with access to the rear and connection up to outdoor covered porches. The basement also features an entertaining area with billiards room, bar, game area and media room, in addition to a bedroom, full bathroom and exercise room.
“This may be one of the only LEED homes to be built in West Chester,” Willig said. “This house also offers a fresh new style and updated design features like the kitchen and hearth room openness and the craftsman exterior.”
The home is approximately 5,000 square feet is for sale for $849,900.
