The time has come for the 2017 Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association Parade of Homes, for two weekends (April 22 & 23) and next (April 29 & 30). This is your once-a-year opportunity to see the best of the best from area builders. Of course, three of the Parade of Home entrants are right here in TidalWalk.

People love touring the Parade of Homes because it’s an excellent source of inspiration nd ideas on every aspect of owning a home. Whether it’s discovering how to create an efficient, upscale kitchen, finding innovative new ways to enjoy outdoor space, or “borrowing” decorating tips from the professionals, the three entrants at TidalWalk offer something for everyone.

Grail Residence: The delight is in the details.

In a home this beautiful, who even thinks about the placement of a light switch, an outlet, or a simple air conditioning vent? The builder, 16 Pointe Properties does, and does so with pride. And if you pay attention, you’ll see this devotion to detail everywhere, like the custom shower that features separate temperature controls. Nice!

Coastal Mediterranean: Creating an environment that embraces the environment.

Living larger through waterfront luxury. That must have been the plan when Tongue & Groove built the utterly phenomenal Coastal Mediterranean (which sold for $2,975,000). No matter where you are in this home, there are stunning views of the Intracoastal Waterway, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the great outdoors, indoors.

Take the elevator—with its beautiful custom wood interior—straight to the top. Don’t feel like eating in? Use the outdoor kitchen to enjoy those warm TidalWalk evenings.
