Drees wins gold at the 2021 Triangle Parade of Homes

With the recent conclusion of the 2021 Triangle Parade of Homes, Drees is proud to announce that the Northwood in Bloomfield Estates brought a GOLD award back to Willow Spring! The Parade of Homes, held annually by the Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County, awarded the Northwood, one of Drees’ newest models, with the highest honor. This year’s Parade saw more than 120 homes in 73 different communities. Drees Homes and 63 other builders participated in the three-weekend home tour this year.

The Northwood at Bloomfield Estates

Nestled conveniently off Interstate 401 and less than 20 miles from downtown Raleigh, the Northwood can be found in the family-friendly town of Willow Spring, North Carolina and within Bloomfield Estates. Bloomfield Estates is a Drees community featuring oversized home sites, signature floor plans and close proximity to green space, shopping, dining and the nightlife of neighboring Fuquay-Varina.

The easy access to restaurants, shops and schools support some great benefits to this budding neighborhood, but it’s the home sites themselves that will “WOW” residents and guests from the moment they pull in the driveway. Drees has proudly compiled some of their most popular Raleigh floor plans for this community, highlighted by the Northwood model, a two-level design boasting many luxurious features and fan-favorite spaces that any resident would love to come home to.

This two-level Northwood design is popular floor plan choice for many homeowners, and now it’s ready for the grand tour. Standing tall with a cohesive compilation of stone, shakes and siding, the exterior boasts a large front porch, three-car garage and bold stained-wood front door that successfully complements the grayish-blue color. A well-manicured lawn and landscaping blends seamlessly with the calculated exterior selections.

The Floor Plan

The Northwood‘s main level has splendid features at every turn, starting with the family room with plenty of natural light and a roaring fireplace. A convenient breakfast area, large kitchen with a versatile island and a formal dining area surround the family room. A much-needed guest suite is privately tucked behind the family room and features a full bathroom. Not to be forgotten, many relaxing evenings can be spent on the screened-in porch area, a perfect place to feel the fall breeze with family and friends.

Comfortable group spaces and private sleeping quarters make up the well-designed second level. A multipurpose gameroom area is the second level’s version of a family room, with customized wall features, plenty of natural light, and relaxing sectional seating. The private and expansive owner’s suite also boasts a customized accent wall, extra seating and a direct connection to a spa-like bath and huge walk-in closet. The laundry room also resides on this level.
