MasterCraft Enters Three Spectacular Model Homes in 2019 Parade of Homes

The music industry has the Grammy’s. The movie industry has the Oscars. Broadway recognizes its best with a Tony Award. The Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) has its own version of awards season with its annual spring Parade of Homes event.

Parade of Homes is the largest annual open house in Northeast Florida and allows the public to tour new model homes, see what each builder and community offers, and vote on their favorites. In addition, a panel of professional judges tour and score each of the model home entries. NEFBA hand picks judges based on their knowledge in the building, construction and home sales experience. This years Parade of Homes will take place April 27 – May 12, 2019 and includes 77 model home entries with an assortment of homes styles and prices.



Last year, MasterCraft won four first-place awards along with the most coveted of all homebuilder awards … “Best of Show” which is the judges’ highest overall score for the San Sebastian model in Madeira. MasterCraft is widely recognized as the leading homebuilder in St. Johns County based on its innovative home designs that allows today’s homeowner to live the way they want versus settling for mass-produced cookie-cutter floor plans.

This year, MasterCraft entered three model homes:

  • Egret Florida Farmhouse model at Shearwater in St. Augustine (2018 Buyer’s Choice Award for Best Kitchen winner)
  • San Sebastian model at Madeira in St. Augustine (2018 Judge’s Overall High Score winner)
  • Thomas Plus model at TrailMark in St. Augustine


MasterCraft is a hands-on builder, and we’ve spent a lot of time in St. Augustine watching, listening and thinking about how today’s families use their homes.  When MasterCraft sets out to build a new home for a client, we pay attention to the details, like including a full Chef’s Kitchen complete with premium Samsung appliances, granite countertops, soft close doors and drawers, and an enormous island so you can spread out when you’re cooking or entertaining. The oversized pantries are also a customer favorite — no more complaining that there’s not enough space to put everything away neatly.

Best of all, we include all the little details that you don’t typically get from other builders. Ten-foot ceilings, smooth walls, and 8-foot solid core Safe and Sound doors in your bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry room. And we’d be remiss if we do not mention that our homes are so energy efficient that we provide a one-year Energy Efficiency Guarantee.

The list of included extras is pretty extensive, so be sure to check out our Higher Standards and contact us if you have any questions.


We’ve worked hard to make sure that MasterCraft meets your expectations in every way possible.  Which means that we need to do more than simply build the house of your dreams.  We need to help you through the process.  And that’s exactly what we do… from start to finish and beyond.
