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.
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.
