Drees model homes dominate Jacksonville’s 2021 Parade of Homes awards

Drees model homes won big in the 2021 Parade of Homes in Jacksonville, with all six participating model homes winning awards for their respective price range. Dubbed the largest open house on the First Coast, this year’s Parade of Homes ran from April 24 – May 9, granting an open invitation to prospective homebuyers, real estate agents and home aficionados to tour 76 homes throughout 65 neighborhoods. Organized by the Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA), the parade scales over 80 miles in three counties, from as north as Fernandina Beach to the southern portion of St. Augustine.

The Best by Price awards, categorized by home price range, honored Drees with four gold awards and two silver awards, celebrating our most popular floor plans in some of our most exciting neighborhoods. Each Drees award winner offers its own unique living space.

Let’s take a deeper dive into what separates these “Best by Price” winners from the rest.

The Jameson at Shearwater
1008 Glenneyre Circle, St. Augustine, FL 32092
Gold Award Winner: $750k – $760k range

Although we recently sold out in the Woodlands at Shearwater, our swan song in this resort-style community takes the form of the jaw-dropping, two-level Jameson. From the appealing coastal exterior to the bright white interior, it’s easy to see why this Floridian oasis won the gold medal. And even though you can’t build your dream Jameson within Shearwater, Drees offers the Jameson floor plan in multiple communities throughout Northeast Florida.
