Nine luxury homes will be featured at Kimberley Estates.
The HomeShowExpo is back in Ankeny this July. The Home Builders Association of Greater Des Moines is presenting their annual event at Kimberley Estates, developed by Kimberley Development, showcasing nine luxury custom homes built by seven of the area’s finest builders.
This year’s HomeShowExpo is the largest show the Home Builders Association has hosted in over a decade, with homes topping well above the million-dollar price point. From hidden wine cellars to sky deck patios, the builders have pulled out all the stops when designing these homes. Each home has been beautifully crafted with some of today’s top trends in mind. Innovative features you will see include gourmet kitchens; vaulted ceilings; a pool, cabana and outdoor shower; a custom-built kid’s playhouse; zero entry homes; hidden closets and a masterfully crafted wrought iron floating staircase. If you are looking for ideas for your new home or remodel, or if you’re in the market to buy, this is the place to be.
“Kimberley Development is very proud to host the HBA’s most well-attended event at Kimberley Estates in Ankeny,” says Bill Kimberley, president of Kimberley Development. “Our newest luxury living community is incredible and it’s the perfect location for the show. It provides a spectacular backdrop for these nine custom homes that are uniquely tailored for the discerning homeowner.”
“Kimberley Estates is located on a former Century Farm, that backs to Four Mile Creek and an established grassy trail that meanders along mature trees. It’s conveniently located off NE Delaware, one mile from I-35 and NE 36th Street, which makes it perfect for commuters to Des Moines or Ames,” notes Kimberley. “It’s a small, quiet neighborhood featuring beautiful executive homes and you can escape busy life by walking the trails and enjoying nature.”
“We are thrilled to host HomeShowExpo 2022 and introduce you to the new Kimberley Estates neighborhood, conveniently located on the north side of Ankeny,” says Ankeny Mayor Mark Holm. “The City of Ankeny is committed to partnering with our community to ensure that we effectively serve our residents, neighborhoods, and businesses. Our success is thanks to developers and their investment and confidence in the community, our business community for its vision, and our residents for their support of these efforts.”
“Ankeny is a special place, and it is no surprise it is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States,” continues Holm. “Ankeny has everything you are looking for in a place to call home—it’s a safe, family-friendly community with beautiful parks and trails, shopping and entertainment districts, a historic downtown called Uptown, quality municipal services and a premier school district. Ankeny checks all the boxes when it comes to a desirable place to live, and it’s poised for even more success in the future.”
The HomeShowExpo is hosted annually by the Home Builders Association of Greater Des Moines over three long weekends in July at a new community in the metro area. The event presents attendees with a unique opportunity to peer inside and appreciate the style, craftsmanship and amenities of new custom-built homes constructed by local builders.
The homes are fully decorated and landscaped by local professionals, highlighting the best in current trends and innovations. The builders, vendors and partners are available throughout the show, providing a great opportunity to discuss your home building needs.
