Anyone who has attended some of the recent editions of the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders’ (GBAHB) Parade of Homes is likely to have been wowed by the Ideal Home built by Scotch Homes in 2017. The GBAHB specifically chose Scotch Homes to build this home to showcase the outstanding designs available to anyone looking at homes in Birmingham AL and surrounding areas, such as Chelsea, where the Ideal Home can be found in Willow Branch community. The home has served as a model home, but has recently been released onto the market and now is your chance to have this truly ideal home for yourself.

The Ideal Home is a modern farmhouse combining warm Southern Hospitality with some of the most exciting and stylish trends coming to the housing market, ranging from materials to Smart Home technology. In addition, it sits atop a grand ridge that offers stunning views in every direction.

The Farmhouse exterior of the home makes the most of trending painted brick, board and batten, cedar beams and stone patios. Inside, your breath is taken away by the soaring 12-foot coffered ceiling in the family room, as well as the 16-foot all-glass Western sliding door that leads out onto an outdoor patio. The space creates an outstanding indoor/outdoor living area that even includes an outdoor kitchen with built-in Coyote gas grill and refrigerator. Even the dining room features soaring vaulted ceilings, but despite the grand scale of so many features in the home, it retains a warm, inviting feel where you’ll want to gather with family and friends.

Built-in bookcases that surround the shiplapped fireplace give the family room a sense of coziness, while the quaint factor is kicked up a notch by the Dutch door off the mud room. Shiplapping, rich dark 7″ hand-scraped hardwood flooring, and a barn door leading to the laundry room all conjure up the warm, inviting atmosphere of a farmhouse.

Yet there are plenty of features that make the most of today’s conveniences and modern amenities. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with plenty of space for elements such as a professional GE Café Appliance gas cooktop and built-in oven, a state of the art built-in Kuerig refrigerator, and a nine-foot-plus waterfall-wrapped silestone island that is as stunning as it is useful. Even the master bathroom takes things to new heights with marble accents, a free-standing bathtub, and a two-person shower enclosed in glass from floor to ceiling.

This home has been wowing visitors since it was first revealed and now it is officially on the market. The home is valued at $599,000, but is available now for just $519,000. This truly is an award-winning ideal home and anyone looking at homes in Birmingham AL and the surrounding areas like Chelsea couldn’t ask for a more beautiful home sitting on an acre of land. Contact Scotch Homes today and don’t miss this opportunity to purchase the ideal version of the modern farmhouse.

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!
