Stuart Construction, LLC is honored to present The Showcase Home for the 2020 Baldwin County Home Builders Association Parade of Homes. The home is located at the Colony at the Grand in Fairhope, one of the loveliest neighborhoods on the Eastern Shore. Homes here overlook 200 year old live oaks, landscaped parks, gardening beds, walking trails, and lake and/or golf views. The Colony at the Grand community is tied to the amenities offered by The Lakewood Club, including 36 Holes of golf, a professional quality tennis facility, multiple pools, fitness center, dining, spa, and social club.

The 2020 Showcase Home is a collaboration of ideas created by Jennifer Mitchell of Stuart Construction with lots of help from local subcontractors and vendors. Decorating by Set to Sell, LLC. The exterior of this home has an interesting mix of Hardie Siding, Painted Brick and Cypress Beams, Shutters and Accents. The home is painted in Sherwin Williams, Alabaster.
