With only a few months until Homearama 2018, the team behind Sterling Homes’ Modern
Farmhouse is excited for the droves of people to descend on their newest home and their
fellow builder’s homes! This home promises to be one of those special properties that you’ll be
talking about long after you leave. You might have heard that before, but after we share with
you the inspiration, design and homes features, you’ll be ready to move to Heritage at Highland
Now, if you haven’t heard about the show this year, Homearama is July 7-22nd at Heritage at
Highland Hills in Mason, Ohio. It’s on the north portion of Columbia Rd before Route 42 in a
community that’s nearing completion as a development! That means very little construction
going forward!

This years show features 10 homes by 6 different builders each priced over $1M. Our favorite
(no bias, of course) is Sterling Homes’ Modern Farm Home. The Dream Team of Sterling Homes,
Mary Cassanelli Architect, Design’s on Madison and Build Cincinnati have come together to
design a home that’s exquisite in every way. Here’s just a few things that you should start to get
excited for:


1. Exterior Design: A powerful and well-crafted exterior is all about the details! The
designers of this home focused on each element to create a modern farmhouse that
rivals the best on Houzz! With timber posts, white board & batton, slate stone as the
accent features and a metal roof, this timeless design will be a quick favorite!
2. Letting the Indoors In! Imagine walking into your expansive living area with the ability
to let the outside elements in! With a wall of windows and doors that stretch over 40’ ft
along the back of the house. If you’re into entertaining, this is the space for you. On a
beautiful Summer Day, open the doors and let the fresh air and fun inside! Or invite 30
of your favorite friends for a grill out and fire out in the back!

3. Guest Suite: Whether you love your in-laws or can’t escape them, you can become the
son or daughter of the year by offering your Guest Suite. This separate suite with it’s
own entrance is perfect for the sporadic guest or the long term family members! And
don’t worry, they’ll have their own kitchenette and full bathroom for plenty of privacy!
4. The Little Big Touches: One of our favorite parts of the homes are the accent elements!
The rustic beams that span the great room allow the warmth to sneak in, while the
interior brick along the back walls creates a vintage farm house feel. The combination
of elements creates a cozy, inviting element for the entire family.
5. Incredible Foyer: Welcome your friends in with towering 20’ foyer ceilings. The
impactful entry combined with the gorgeous craftsman, wood doors will be sure to
impress your closets friends and family!

Sound like a home you could move in to? We thought so!

As usual, Homearama will be full of incredible, sometimes over the top, design trends and
features that make for an excellent show. However, if you’re ready for some soft and warm
elegance with a timeless design and longevity, this Sterling Home will hits the bullseye.

Introducing Kensington in Deerfield Twp

Introducing Kensington in Deerfield Twp

Key Takeaways:

 Kensington is located  between Snider Rd and Wilkens Blvd in Deerfield Twp and Mason School District.

 The developer is inspired by Kensington in London and will feature a full pool facility, sidewalks and spectacular grand entrance.

 There will be 4 custom home builders in the community, including Walker Homes & Classic Living Homes, with prices starting 750,000+ range for half to 1 acre lots.

It’s the development you didn’t know you were waiting for… KENSINGTON in Deerfield Township!  You might be thinking, “oh, another Mason community”, but we promise you, this one is distinctly different with its incredibly convenient location, London inspired grand entrance motif, and masterfully designed lot settings.

You might need a little vision to see what it will become this Fall, but you won’t have to wait too long. So, lets jump in to what separates Kensington from the rest!

First off, the concept of Kensington came from, where else, Kensington Gardens, which is an affluent district in West London. Even though this Kensington isn’t exactly in Hyde Park, it will carry the same elegance in design with an entrance way fit for a King (or Queen). There will even be subtle nuances of the old city in the landscaping and amenities throughout.

Yes, I said amenities. Not only will you have sidewalks and a grand entrance, but you’ll also have access to a pool and playground specifically for the residence. The developers have also thrown in a few fun family yard games! Every amenity is designed to create a community feel that it’s resident’s would be proud of!

Now, let’s talk location. Kensington is about as convenient as it gets. It’s located off Fields Ertel Rd between Snider Rd and Wilken’s Boulevard. This puts you seconds from I-71 and just a couple of minutes from I-275 and I-75. Since you’re in Deerfield Twp and Mason Schools, you have the trifecta: location, highly rated school district, and a township tax base.

If all that’s not enough, the home sites will seal the deal. Upon entering the community, you’ll see that there are lots of all shapes and sizes for every buyer: walkout lots, wooded lots, and flat lots. Most of the home sites are priced between $180-$240,000 which makes the full home package (lot & house) at around $750,000+.







All in all there will be about 40 Custom Home lots in the community. That offers quite a large selection for you to choose from! If the lot size and price tag is a little steep for you, there is another option. In the back sections of the community, Fischer Homes will be building their Designer Homes on 85-90’ wide lots between $550-675,000 and lifestyle homes on 60’ wide lots in the mid $500,000’s. Either way, you’ll have plenty to choose from!!

So, what are you waiting for? Give us a call today to stay on top of all that is happening in Kensington.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be rolling out more information on the community, including exclusive offers from our builders. You just have to be a part of our email list!!
