pg 08 HJ_July_2016Lexington’s Grand Tour of Homes is a highlight of every summer for Lexington homeowners and prospective homeowners in search of inspiration.

pg 01 HJ_July_2016The tour is self-guided which means participants can select the homes that most interest them and create their own home tour experience to suit their needs—whether it’s practical research or fantasy fulfillment.

Jimmy Nash Homes will highlight four homes on this year’s tour. The Monet in The Reserve at Greenbrier (3816 Cayman Lane); The Asheville in the Oaks at Cave Springs (208 the Oaks Blvd in Nicholasville); the Elizabeth in Patchen Wilkes at 1809 Goodpaster Way; and the Pebble Beach in Andover Club Villas at 3406 Country Club Drive.

Nash says, “We’ve always supported the Home Builders Association and we try to have a Grand Tour home each year. We have a loyal following each year. We are always pushing the envelope in offering something unique that customers can take away. What’s nice about the Grand Tour is the multiple locations and various price points so there is something for everybody.”

The Pebble Beach and the Monet are both in 40509 and the Elizabeth is nearby in 40505. Nash says Hamburg’s “location is the number one selling point because it’s close to downtown, close to both I-75 and I-64. Hamburg also has the convenience of shopping and entertainment. And, it has lots of choices of schools of both public and private education.”

This year’s self-guided tour will provide guests with a sampling of the most up-to-date home features in windows, insulation, heating, cooling and lighting, all boasting the latest in energy-efficiency standards.

These homes showcase the innovation of the Certified Professional Builders who make up the Home Builders Association of Lexington.

The Tour is an opportunity for Lexington homeowners and prospective homeowners to see the year’s trends and latest technology in action.
