Three homes down, three more to go. Today, WestChesterBuzz gives a look inside The Carolina, a home that was selected among a group of independent judges as their favorite home in the six-home showcase.
The Carolina, which at 5,700-square feet and built by Jack H. Wieland Builders is one of the smallest homes in the showcase, was given top honors by judges in the favorite decorating, favorite exterior, favorite family room/great room, favorite kitchen, favorite dining room and favorite floor plan categories. It also received second-place honors in the favorite outdoor living space, favorite study/office/library, favorite master bathroom and favorite master bedroom categories.
The second-place finish for outdoor living space could be contested by Homearama visitors, who have the opportunity to vote for their favorites by using a kiosk. The voting machines are new to the local Homearama event.
To see why Homearama guests might disagree with the judges – simply watch the video.
