The 57th edition of the Parade of Homes takes place July 10–18 in Massillon at Augusta Lakes. This year’s show has five brand new homes – all showing off the latest in new home interior design, floor plans, technology, green building, and landscaping. These fully decorated homes are priced to start at $450,000 and feature a variety of up-to-date architectural styles.
This is a show that appeals to all generations of consumers – from first-time home buyers to empty nesters and will be especially appealing to everyone interested in building a custom home.
Augusta Lakes is a scenic and popular development that borders the beautiful Legends golf course. It is conveniently located off Richville Drive and easily accessible from Route 30, Southway St. SW, or downtown Massillon. I thought our readers would appreciate a sneak peek at some of the homes. The first featured house has been beautifully crafted by Smith Homes.
House #1, Smith Homes
2170 Championship Circle SE
