May 18, 2017 12:17 pm Published by Comments Off on Take a Virtual Tour of the 2017 Ideal Home

If you didn’t get a chance to see the 2017 Ideal Home at the recent Parade of Homes — or if you want to see this stunning home again — you can now take a virtual tour any time you like. The 2017 Ideal Home is just one of the appealing new homes in Chelsea AL that have been built by Scotch Homes.

Built in the Willow Branch community, the Ideal Home was commissioned by the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders. The concept that Scotch Homes came up with for this spectacular home was a true Modern Farmhouse, combing warm Southern hospitality with the latest on-trend housing features.

The home takes your breath away from the first viewing. To start with, it stands atop a majestic ridge that provides the home with exceptional views. The exterior brings to mind a charming farmhouse, updated with painted brick, board and batten, cedar beams, and stone patios that create a rustic yet sophisticated appearance.

As you step through the double front door, whether in person or through the virtual tour, your eyes are drawn immediately to the soaring ceiling overhead. The grand foyer is modern yet inviting, with rich, dark brown wood floors and a view that leads all the way back to the patio, further enhancing the light, open atmosphere.

The first floor is open and spacious, but still provides a clear sense of individual rooms through the use of large archways connecting the kitchen, family room, and dining room area. The family room creates a feeling of warm coziness with built-in bookcases and a shiplapped fireplace. Overhead, the 12-foot coffered ceiling is complemented by the 16-foot-wide all-glass sliding door that opens out onto the patio, further expanding the living space. The patio’s timber beams and stonework create a setting that people will want to linger in, which is why the patio includes a built-in Coyote gas grill and refrigerator.

Of course, the home’s actual kitchen is chef quality, with a professional GE Café appliance selection that includes a gas cooktop, built-in oven, and state-of-the-art built-in Kuerig refrigerator. There’s no shortage of cabinet space, with Monarch cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling, along with a nine-foot waterfall-wrapped silestone island. You can see the details for yourself as you work your way through the virtual tour.

Of course, there’s a beautiful master suite, with a bathroom that features dual vanities, a two-person shower with glass from floor to ceiling, and a freestanding modern tub, along with plenty of marble accents throughout. The walk-in-closet is large enough to satisfy any fashionista.

When you climb the beautiful staircase to the second story, you’ll find an area perfect for the kids. As well as three bedrooms with their own bathroom access, there is a loft area perfect for never-ending video game tournaments or just hanging out with friends.

There’s all of this and so much more in the 2017 Ideal House. One look at it, in person, or through the virtual tour, and you’ll see why this is an ideal home. Thoughtfully designed and carefully built, the attention to detail is impeccable, yet the design also captures the coziness people crave in a true home.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
