The Valverde, A Showcase Home for All Seasons (5 of 5)

The Spaces That Really Count
The Valverde, A Showcase Home for All Seasons (5 of 5) - valverde exterior 2Last but never least, let’s talk about those not-so-glamorous, but essential, behind-the-scenes work areas; a lifesaving “drop off zone” adjacent to the roomy laundry area that “neat-niks” will love for its out-of-the way yet accessible location. Families struggling to stay organized will appreciate how it simplifies their efforts to reduce clutter throughout the house. Who doesn’t need a convenient spot for golf shoe removal, a charging station for phones, laptops and I-pads, personal nooks, or an easy-to-find car key depository? There’s even a special cubbie for the family pet! The walk-in pantry makes it easy to keep rarely used pots and pans at the ready for those impromptu gatherings – or when you don’t have time or energy to find that large roaster. The 27 foot deep garage welcomes more than just vehicles, with room for a golf cart, motorcycle, bicycles and lawn equipment without overpowering the house.

The “Valverde” clearly embraces the environment in simple yet expansive ways, while making it easy and fun to relax at home. Each space of this artistically designed Spanish-styled abode thoughtfully emanates warmth, exudes comfort, and embraces a practical yet elegant lifestyle; truly a Showcase Home for All Seasons.

As the Showcase Home, the “Valverde” serves as the main attraction for the March 17-April 1, 2012 Parade of Homes in Volusia County. For more than 40 years, the Parade of Homes, sponsored by the VBIA, has given area residents a peek into the latest in new home design. Created to offer a taste of the latest trends in residential construction, interior design, and landscaping, the Parade typically draws thousands of visitors to new homes throughout the county. The “Valverde” serves as a local “dream” home, featuring the finest materials and highlighting the latest in new home, high tech, and energy efficient options.

To visit, take I-95 to exit 278 and head west on Old Dixie Hwy. Plantation Bay is on the left.
