ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (March 12, 2013) — ICI Homes is adding finishing touches to the Bellevue model home at Plantation Bay Golf and Country Club in Ormond Beach for a starring role as the Showcase Home during the Volusia Building Industry Association’s 2013 Parade of Homes March 16-24.

Rosemary Messina, vice president of sales and marketing for ICI Homes, said the three- bedroom, three-bath, Bellevue model home weighs in at 5,691 square feet under roof including the enormous second floor loft, and will provide lots of buzz for the estimated 5,000 guests expected to tour this year’s “latest-greatest idea home” during the parade season.

“A showcase home represents the very best a builder has to offer and gives us the chance to show off an amazing new floor plan, latest design trends and the most up to date energy efficient engineering,” said Messina. With a base price of $382,900 for the home only, the Bellevue model home is a case study of ICI Homes’ “smaller, smarter” luxury home design — richly appointed with upscale finishes, soaring ceilings, long views and big spaces for family and friends.

With almost 4,200 square feet of air conditioned space, the Bellevue has plenty of room for the whole family downstairs and boasts a grand loft space and balcony on the second floor that can serve as a mega-game room, live-in guest suite or professional studio; all with breathtaking views of the 7th fairway of the Westlake Golf Course and conservation area beyond.

The Bellevue’s stylish, center-island kitchen adjoins the great room, wide dining nook, and open formal dining area. A covered lanai complete with pool, spa, summer kitchen, fireplace and flat screen TV completes the public spaces that together total more than 1,000 square feet for casual family get-togethers or entertaining on a grand scale.

The Bellevue features an elegant owners’ suite with enormous bath salon with its own fitness space, Roman style walk in shower, hydro-spa soak tub and custom his and hers closets. A two-car side entry garage that faces a separate golf cart garage affords ample room for family vehicles and hobby equipment. The “Bellevue” will be open to the public during the VBIA Parade of Homes from Saturday, March 16 through Sunday, March 24.
