Gracewater at Sarasota is bursting with pride as we share the spotlight with our two stunning model homes, Waters Edge and Bay Haven, both named best overall winners in their respective categories at the prestigious 2024 Parade of Homes by the Suncoast Builders Association. 

The annual Parade of Homes shines a light on the pinnacle of home design, sustainability, and innovation, featuring the best of West Coast Florida living. This year, among an impressive lineup of 100 models across Manatee and Sarasota counties, our very own Waters Edge and Bay Haven captured the hearts and imaginations of the judges and attendees alike. 



Waters Edge: A Symphony of Space and Comfort

Imagine a home where every corner speaks volumes of comfort and every room echoes with space. The Waters Edge model home, winner of Category #8, is a masterpiece designed for those who yearn for a life wrapped in the comfort of spacious interiors. Boasting 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, this single-story haven is the epitome of the phrase “room to breathe.”

What sets Waters Edge apart is its generous bedrooms and ample living areas, which invite residents to make memories together. This model home embodies the idea that true luxury lies in the freedom of space and the warmth of comfort, making it a quintessential choice for those seeking the best of both worlds.



Bay Haven: Where Elegance Meets Practicality

Step into Bay Haven, the other gem to emerge victorious in Category #12, and you’ll be greeted by a rare blend of elegance and functionality. This model home redefines comfort with its 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and versatile spaces like a downstairs office and an upstairs loft/bonus room. Bay Haven’s design philosophy revolves around the concept of togetherness, with its open kitchen and great room serving as the heart of the home. 

Here, friends and family can gather, share meals, and create moments that become cherished memories. Yet, when the need arises for solitude or productivity, the office and loft provide sanctuaries of privacy and focus. This balance between shared spaces and personal nooks makes the Bay Haven an embodiment of modern living.

Why These Winners Stand Out

In a parade that boasted an impressive lineup of 100 models across Manatee and Sarasota counties, the Waters Edge and Bay Haven rose to the top for their exceptional approach to design and living. These homes reflect a deep understanding of today’s lifestyles and diverse needs, offering functional and inviting spaces.

Moreover, these models exemplify the Suncoast Builders Association and its members’ commitment to not just meeting but exceeding homebuyers’ expectations. By marrying innovative design with sustainability and energy conservation, Waters Edge and Bay Haven inspire the future of homebuilding in the beautiful backdrop of West Coast Florida.
