The third home listed on the 2013 Homearama program is another home built by Justin Doyle Homes; The Chateau D’Avoise is a 6,863-square foot ranch that sold for $1.2 million.
The Chateau D’Avoise was popular among a group of independent judges, who gave it second place in their favorite home category among the six homes in the showcase.That same panel of judges gave the home a first-place rating for favorite exterior, favorite master bedroom, favorite master bathroom and favorite study; as well as a second-place rating for favorite family/great room and favorite lower level.
Three areas that will most definitely stand out to Homearama visitors are the study, the master bathroom and the Cincinnati Reds themed room in the lower level.

The study is located near the front door and features a 18-foot tall turret with built-in book shelfs on the walls that lead up to the ceiling. The master bath appears to be the largest master bathroom in the entire home showcase; it is actually larger than most of the rooms in the home itself. The Reds room is tucked away in the lower level and provides a getaway for a handful of baseball fans who want to watch the game or play a video game without being disturbed.
WestChesterBuzz.com will continue its daily Homearama series, which will give a short video preview of each home. The series will continue Wednesday and run through Friday. Each day during that time, the Buzz will post a video that will give Homearama fans a look inside one of the homes in the showcase.
There is still plenty of time to visit Homerama for yourself. Tickets can be purchased for $13 at the gate. Discount tickets for $11 can be purchased in advance at area Kroger stores or can be obtained with a valid AAA membership card at the gate.
