BAGI’s Home-A-Rama to hit Chatham Hills in Westfield


By Anna Skinner

The Builder Association of Greater Indianapolis has showcased custom homes through Home-A-Rama around the Indianapolis Metropolitan area, and this year the event will return to Westfield.

There will be 11 featured homes in Chatham Hills near 191st Street and Tomlinson Road for guests to walk through and observe.

“This Home-A-Rama is featuring 11 homes, which is the biggest show we’ve done in recent years,” BAGI Director of Communications Carrie Cason said. “Typically, we have four or five homes. There are 11, fully decorated and landscaped custom homes in Chatham Hills (for the event).”

Nine of the featured homes are estate homes, and two are homes of empty nesters.

“Empty nesters are a big part of the marketplace right now, so we wanted to throw a few in … there will be decorating ideas, get to know the builders, design ideas … it’s sure to capture everyone’s attention,” Cason said.

Home-A-Rama runs Sept. 15 through Oct. 2. A preview party will be Sept. 14. All parking will be directed to Grand Park where shuttles will transport guests to the site.

Tickets for the preview party are $75 and benefit St.Vincent’s Cancer Walk. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be served. Regular viewings run noon to 8 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Tickets are $12 online and $15 at the gate for a one-day pass, and $20 online and $25 at the gate for a two-day pass.

Last year, Home-A-Rama was at Sagamore in Noblesville, and two years ago it was at Brookside in Westfield.

“We are excited to be in Westfield. Westfield is great to work with,” Cason said. “I think everyone is excited to have thousands of people come to Westfield and see their beautiful community.”
