Through multiple generations, family-owned Drees Homes has seen quite the transformation since our first home was built in 1928. Since our nationwide expansion began from one new region to the next, Drees’ evolution of home building has grown through multiple new and exciting product designs that fit each unique housing market. When Drees purchased Harmony Homes in 2005, not only was the company excited about entering a new region with robust housing market projections over the next decade and beyond, but Jacksonville’s distinct home designs focused around one and two-story single family homes, providing a great opportunity to introduce and progress our award-winning home designs to Northeast Florida.
Fast-forward fifteen years, Drees is still producing some incredible one- and two-story floor plan designs across multiple communities in the greater Jacksonville area. Instant validation of this statement comes in the form of two brand new models, the Durbin II and Palmetto, debuting in some of the most exciting Floridian communities that Drees has to offer.
The Durbin II, a stellar floor plan that recently took home the Gold Award in the 2020 Parade of Homes, is now open at Oakland Hills at Eagle Landing, while the Palmetto, another exciting coastal ranch plan, is now open in the amenity-rich St. Augustine community of TrailMark. While both models have their own unique style and impressive balance of luxury and functionality, the Durbin II and Palmetto share the well-built custom home design that homeowners can expect when choosing to build with Drees.
Let’s take a deeper dive in what makes each model brightly shine in their own special way.
The Durbin II
Oakland Hills at Eagle Landing | 1070 Oakland Hills Drive, Middleburg, FL 32068
This award-winning design brings it’s luxuriously open layout to the amenity-rich communities of Eagle Landing. At just under 3,000 square feet, the Durbin II is highlighted by a large, open living triangle, connecting the family room, dining area and kitchen. This bright and airy space allows the Florida sun to light up the area naturally, while also providing easy access to the expanded outdoor living space with pond views. The owner’s suite is equal parts expansive and private, and the connected owner’s suite bath with garden tub and super shower is the perfect place to decompress after a long day. The cozy study and sunroom offer versatility for those who work from home.
Equipped with DreeSmart technology, this smart home boasts an automation system and energy-efficiency practices that gives the homeowner ultimate control, straight from the convenience of their smart phone.
TrailMark | 101 Dolcetto Drive, St. Augustine, FL 32092
A stone pathway leads guests to the covered front porch of the brand-new Palmetto, a well-designed plan in amenity-rich TrailMark. Packed with luxurious, yet functional spaces, Drees’ newest model boasts multiple bedrooms on the main level, including a private owner’s suite with upgraded ceiling features. A convenient morning room connects to an outdoor living area, while a flex room and second-level gameroom provide versatility to host guests, work remotely or share precious memories with friends and family members.
An impressive addition to a community with star-studded amenities, the Palmetto at TrailMark is a must-see design for those interested in living in the St. Augustine area.
Both homes, along with multiple other Drees models will be featured in the upcoming Northeast Florida Parade of Homes from April 24 – May 9, 2021.
