Built within the densely populated Winter Park community of Orlando, The New American Home® 2021 will showcase many of the latest building designs and techniques for industry pros. It also features one of the most sought-after amenities of today’s home buyers — a prime location.

An aerial view shows the progress on TNAH 2021. The project is on schedule and slated for completion in October.

The 2021 home stands in contrast to previous editions of The New American Home that were constructed on large lots in less-urban regions. Built on a 0.12-acre lot, the latest New American Home earns high scores on the walkability scale, located just a short distance from numerous retail shops, parks and dining options.

“It’s really targeted for those who want all of the amenities of a walkable community and still have all of the luxuries of a beautiful, new home,” said Phil Kean, the home’s builder and designer, and principal of Phil Kean Design Group. “I love the tall, loft-like feel of the top floor … That’s going to be the architectural jewel [of the 2021 home].”

The unique design of the 2021 home maximizes the relatively small lot with three expansive levels totaling 4,397 square feet of living space. It features a three-car garage, two guest bedrooms, an elevator, exercise room, entertainment room, large master suite, tall ceilings, abundant natural light and two terraces with scenic views.

Despite the industry-wide challenges because of COVID-19, the exhibition home remains on schedule with an expected completion in late October 2020. The official unveiling will take place during the 2021 NAHB International Builders’ Show®, Feb. 9-11.
