About the Ideal Home

The Greater Montgomery Home Builders Association Ideal Home is inspired by the award-winning architecture seen throughout The Waters Community. This year’s Ideal Home is designed by Stephen L. Thrash of Custom Home Designs. The home was by members of the association and designed with the latest design trends and ideas.

About the Builder

Farrior Homes is a family-owned and operated company founded in 2013. Owners, Coleman and Jake Farrior are brothers and both Auburn University graduates. Coleman and Jake are personally involved in every phase of construction. They offer a commitment to quality and open communication during the building process and work with clients one-on-one to create the perfect home for their families.

The Plan

The 2021 Ideal Home plan was The Avondale, a beautiful 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath design. Click here to view the plan.
A beautiful double-door entry welcomes you into the open plan family room, dining and kitchen. The living area featured a beautiful brick fireplace with custom hand hewn white oak mantel and remote control gas logs. The timeless kitchen, custom-designed by Diana Warner Home, is beautiful and functional with an abundance of custom cabinetry, a work island and designer details like a pot filler and House of Rohl unlacquered brass faucet. The half bath features textured wallpaper by Farrow & Ball. The oversized first-floor owner’s suite is a peaceful retreat and leads into a luxurious bath with dual vanities, free standing tub and large shower with frameless door! The Laundry room has custom tile flooring design along with ample custom cabinetry, a sink and quartz countertops. Large drop station with hooks and individual lockers is right off the backdoor. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a sitting room and walk-in attic storage spaces! A 2-car carport with additional parking pad and storage room and golf cart parking area complete the plan! Tech upgrades such as touchscreen panel and video doorbell, back porch surround sound speakers, whole house wired with Nexia compatibility in mind. Don’t miss the thoughtful details throughout like Kyle glass knobs with a collins trim and Monte Carlo style living room fan.
