Chatham Park Builders Win Gold and Silver at 2021 Parade of Homes Gala

And the winners are (drumroll please)…David Weekley and Garman Homes! Chatham Park is proud to announce that both of our Parade Home builders were recognized at the 2021 Parade of Homes Gala hosted by The Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange, & Chatham Counties. David Weekley Homes brought home Gold in its category for the Careywood model and Garman Homes was awarded Silver in another category for its No Little Plans design. Both homes are located in Vineyards at Chatham Park. David Weekley showcased the Careywood, a beautifully decorated model home featuring 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms over 2,300+ square feet. Enjoy a wonderfully open and airy first-floor living space and impeccable trim details throughout the home.  The Barnaby, part of Nonfiction by Garman Homes’ Quotables Collection, is the 2021 America at Home Study Concept Home. This innovative floor plan boasts over 2,600 square feet with 4-bedrooms and 3.5-bathrooms and even has a secret room (we just can’t tell you where!).

In addition to the awards, Chatham Park experienced three successful Parade weekends due to beautiful weather, well-executed events, and a steady stream of visitors to the community. During our public event, visitors were able to enjoy food trucks, a caricature artist and participate in a fun scavenger hunt that led them to different locations including the two parade homes, Knight Farm Community Park, information tables for Thales Academy, Tri Pointe Homes and Homes By Dickerson, and the new information center at MOSAIC. Participants turned in their registration cards at the MOSAIC Comes Alive event to receive a Chatham Park goodie bag. Registrants were also added to the grand prize drawings. 

As supporters of the popular home tour, we recognize the opportunity to highlight not just our homes but our community as a whole. From our convenient location and stunning views to our myriad of amenities and retail spaces, we know you are going to love what Chatham Park has to offer.  

Over the three Parade weekends, more than 660 people (including 230 Realtors) toured the Vineyards and MOSAIC Information Center to learn about our community, amenities, and custom homes nearing completion. We are pleased to announce that the festivities resulted in five homes sold by David Weekley, two homes sold by Garman Homes, and a custom home sale for Walker Design Build. 

Ask us about upcoming events at both Vineyards and MOSAIC and we look forward to seeing you in our award-winning, technology-centric, master-planned community!

the Huckleberry Trail Farm Festival. This year’s festival will last through the month of October and marks the 10-year anniversary of Huckleberry Trail Farm in Siler City.
