The new Florencia Model by Emerald Homes at The Forest dominated its category in the 2015 Manatee and Sarasota BIA Parade of Homes taking the top award plus several others.

- BEST KITCHEN
- BEST CURB APPEAL
- BEST FLOOR PLAN
- BEST MASTER SUITE
Competition in this category of $Million+ homes included an impressive list of builders with custom homes in premier communities. The region is known for having some of the best luxury homes in the nation and the annual Parade is always a showcase for the latest trends in new home design and innovation. This is an impressive win for the Florencia and makes a strong statement for the entire line up of homes Emerald is now introducing in The Forest.
