Olentangy Falls - 2011 Parade of Homes

The BIA made this video about the 2011 Parade of Homes at Olentangy Falls in March 2011, you can see some of the eleven homes while they were under construction.  


Most of the homes exteriors are very done, or very close... in the video in March 2011.  The changes that landscaping do are always amazing to me.   How quickly landscaping can make a Parade Home blend right into it's surroundings is wild.

The woman taking the video of the homes in Olentangy Falls was in front of the P & D Builders house.  She shows the M/I  Home, The Weaver Custom Home, The Rockford Home.... she was on the east end of the street... with the 2011 Parade of Homes.

Here are photos of the houses during the Parade of Homes, they were taken on my cell phone...

Really my photos do not do these homes or the landscaping justice.... I believe I found the five homes that match the homes in the video...

"and on down the block there" were the other six homes Manor Homes, Ambassador Homes, Compass Homes, Dominion Homes, Fischer Homes and New England Homes.... All the 2011 Parade homes except the M/I Homes entry were sold prior to the beginning of the 2011 Parade of Homes at Olentangy Falls.

I believe the March 2011 video shows 5 of the 11 homes in the 2011 BIA Parade of Homes at Olentangy Falls that I have pictured here. Or do I have any confused?

I was on the BIA Parade Blog today, looking to see whether they'd announced the People's Choice Awards yet....  I don't see it there.   Am I missing it?  Actually I was looking to see if I could tell how long after the 2010 Parade in New Albany... or the 2009 Parade at Tartan West the announcement was made of who the public voted for....

Instead I watched this video and thought about what a little actually a lot (lots?) of landscaping can do for a new home. 

I never drove into the Olentangy Fallls neighborhood until May 2011, the Friday before Memorial Day... the construction was crazy...  I could not get to the bottom of the hill to see the New England Homes, 2011 Parade entry. I did not know it was a circle.  Duh!  I could have come around to see the New England Homes parade house.  I got to see the New England Home inside and out the Thursday before the parade started.  I digress.. this is NOT about the New England Homes house in the 2011 Parade of Homes.  It did not make the March video... The New England Homes house was way down the hill.

Olentangy Falls is in Liberty Township in Delaware County.  The homes in the Olentangy Falls neighborhood have a Delaware address, their zip code is 43015.  Olentangy Falls is in Olentangy schools.

Lots are still available in Olentangy Falls

There are still lots available in the Olentangy Falls subdivision, which was developed by Rockford Homes.  Olentangy Falls is such a unique location for Central Ohio.  Unique terrain.  If you need a real estate agent...

Lot search... as in land.  Know that this in no way represents all lots and land available in Central Ohio...

The YouTube video on the BIA's blog has 383 views on  July 8, 2011.

I love(d) going to Parade(s) of Homes. I think that's one of the sources of inspiration for me to become a realtor when I defected from corporate life. I so enjoyed seeing all the fabulous things builders and designers do
