Parade of Homes features 12 spectacular homes including an impressive custom build in Ann Arbor

There are 12 homes this year as part of the annual BRAG Ann Arbor Parade of Homes (June 21-23), including an impressive multi-generational custom home in Chelsea that was designed to be home to a family with children and their grandmother so she can have her own complete set of private areas (think two homes in one). That is located at 800 Greystone Drive in Chelsea. The other custom home on this year’s Parade is by Meadowlark Design+Build, which will feature a virtual reality tour as well. That home is located at 1242 Arlingon, Ann Arbor.

In addition, there are four new homes by Nofolk Homes, three homes by Toll Brothers, a couple re-entered this year by Guenther Homes and one in Howell.
