The Kings’ Chapel Parade of Homes returns this holiday season, offering guests a view inside five brand new homes currently being built inside the Arrington community.

From Dec. 6-21, guests may come and view five of the latest home designs offered at Kings’ Chapel, as well as help a child in need during the holidays. Developer John Powell said he wanted the community to conduct such an event because it was unable to last year and he looks forward to what it means to the Kings’ Chapel community.

“They’re all brand new houses built just for the show, fully furnished and decorated by local decorators, and they will be staffed by Kings’ Chapel Realty and other realtors or volunteers,†Powell said.

This year’s parade will feature a beautiful spectrum of homes ranging from traditional to European influence. Each home will be available for purchase prior to and during the event, something parade chairman David Crane of Crane Builders said has been successful in the past.

“The last one we did, all of them were sold either before the parade or during the parade,†Crane said.

Private tours of the homes also will be available for serious prospective buyers, Kings’ Chapel’s onsite broker Katrina Roberts said.

“Last time we had the parade, one sold the night of the opening party.â€

Builders for this year’s parade include Arnold Homes LLC, Carbine & Associates LLC, Drees Homes, Gregg & Rains Building Group, Hughes Edwards Builders, and Tennessee Valley Homes. The houses are currently under construction and one more set to break ground next week. All are tucked into a quiet “pocket†of the neighborhood, back up preserved green space, and will be accessible by a newly constructed bridge.

Guests will arrive through the Kings’ Chapel gates and drive straight until they arrive at the base of the bridge, where a golf cart shuttle will take them to the parade site

“One of the key considerations is that it also has to have lots of parking right next to where these five building sites are,†Crane said. “They’ve set aside an area for parking and they’ll be putting a bridge in to get to it. All four houses are under construction – the last starts next week – so everybody’s on schedule and we’re ready for an early December kickoff.â€

Since this year’s parade of homes will take place during December, many of the neighborhood’s streets and homes will be adorned with Christmas lights and other holiday decorations and that will make the tour more than an afternoon of visitng a set of homes, he said.

Tickets for this year’s parade are $12 per person and can be purchased at the Kings’ Chapel gate. All proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Powell said he hopes the event will fund the holidays of three children.

“During that time of year it’s a great thing to do, to have a charity, especially a children’s charity, at Christmas time. We did this once before and our goal is to sponsor three wishes.â€

Guests may congregate after the tour at the neighborhood clubhouse, where resident chef Brian Cochran will provide a catered meal to ticketholders.

A Dec. 4 preview industry dinner will be held and awards will be presented to the Best In Show home as judged by local media. Peoples’ Choice awards will be chosen during the parade.
