Fabulous Homes Open Up for a Great Cause
The 2006 Bellaire Fall New Home Showcase
Ever wished you could have it all — a stately house, beautiful furnishings, a lovely neighborhood and still live close to town? Maybe you are planning to build your dream home or remodel. Or, maybe you just want to see the latest technology. Whatever it is, something about a new house gets everyone excited.
This month, the third annual Bellaire Fall New Home Showcase (www.bellaireshowcase.com) will be held during the weekends of Oct. 7-8 and 14-15. The showcase features homes priced from the $800s to $2.4 million. Built by All Good Homes, BAS Concepts, LLP, Bellaire Builders, Genson Homes, Hampton Windfall Ventures, Impact Construction, Lovett Homes, Partners In Building, L.P., Savannah Home Builders and Tommy Cashiola Construction Co. Inc., these homes will astound you. They include features, such as rotunda entries with spectacular staircases, wine cellars, barrel-vaulted ceilings, intricate tile work, wood-burning ovens, media rooms, home theaters, summer kitchens, state-of-the-art pools, as well as the talents of outstanding interior design firms. For the kids, one home includes a tree house complete with trapdoor and play space.
