And the winner is…
We’ll get to that in a moment.
But first, if you missed out on the 2017 Building & Development Association of Southern Indiana (BDASI) Home Expo presented by River City Bank at Champions Pointe, here’s a quick recap: Thousands of people attended the multi-day event, which showcased the latest in housing trends at a brand-new section of the premier development situated on the beautiful backdrop of one of the resort-style golf courses designed and built by Southern Indiana’s own Fuzzy Zoeller, Masters and U.S. Open champion who won 10 PGA tour events and was the USGA golfer of the year in 1985.
Several awards were given, but the most coveted – the People’s Choice Award – was awarded to (drumroll, please!) The Mint Julep by Murphy Homes.
“Winning the award was our goal from the start of it,” said Chase Murphy, who co-owns Murphy Homes with his wife, Amy. “What it tells me is that we put out a superior product and that people who are shopping for a custom home builder, we’re going to be at the top of their list.”
Murphy Homes, which is known for daring to be different, showcased an urban farmhouse design called The Mint Julep. Featuring beautiful Hardi Shaker siding and accented with a metal roof and white, sandy Coranado stone and three covered patios, it’s easy to see why this gorgeous abode was awarded the favorite.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home also boasts a welcoming foyer with wainscoting trim and old farmhouse-style glass window transom. The living room has soaring ceilings with ship lap trim accented with a hand-hewn beam, tons of board and batten trim and Mercury glass tile around the fireplace.
Additionally, the massive island acts as the centerpiece of the kitchen, and the master bedroom suite – with its marvelous bathroom – is to die for.
“The Mint Julep,” said Chase, “it’s kind of a melting pot of Pinterest and Houzz.”
Again, the 2017 BDASI Home Expo People’s Choice Award means much, but so do the comments from customers. “The the best feedback is that people think I am approachable, easy to get a hold of, down to earth, easy to deal with and I don’t get rattled very easy,” Chase said. “Plus, we try to make it a fun process.”
