The 2009 Parade Home won every award in the People’s Choice awards at the Parade of Homes, including Best Kitchen, Best Master, Best Outdoor Living, Best Overall Design, and Best Architectural Design. This Italian-style villa was inspired by the warmth and casual comfort of European Architecture. From the welcoming courtyard in the front to the spacious pool in back, this home balances the feminine side with the masculine in a way that works well for the homeowners. The courtyard in front is mirrored in the back of the home, where the pool area actually opens up to the golf course, providing privacy but access to the outdoors all at the same time. The home features a large game room with private poker room, interior rock and brick arch (a Jenkins trademark), state-of-the-art home theater, fabulous guest quarters, and a creative use of the outdoor living spaces.
These clients built several homes prior to this one and were looking for a builder who (to quote the homeowners) “listened to what they wanted and never got upset when things did not go exactly as planned.” When they saw their Character Study for the first time, they couldn’t believe how close to perfect it was. Since the gentleman of the house is a trophy wild game hunter who has won the “Muy Grande” award several times, the Game Room was an important room for him. He wanted space for several game tables, including a pinball machine, plus room for a poker table and wet bar. We put the poker table in its own round room surrounded by stone, then placed the dedicated Media Room just off the Game Room.
