BROOKINGS – One home being featured on the 2018 Brookings FCCLA Tour of Homes is the rustic, modern home of Bill and Amy Hadsell on 1401 Windermere Way, built to their liking by Justin Odegaard.
The Hadsell family, originally from Florida, drew inspiration from their former beachy lifestyle while designing the interior of this home. This two-story home with five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a gym and plenty of living space is the perfect size for a family of five with two dogs. Some of the custom features include hardwood floors, a large picture windows overlooking the marsh, as well as customized granite countertops. The lighting was hand-picked by the owners, with a different fixture in every room.
In the home there are art pieces painted by Bill Hadsell, whose paintings can also be found in the South Dakota Art Museum gift shop. Designing the home was a joy for Amy, a real estate agent and stager for Best Choice Real Estate.
This holiday season the Hadsells are keeping it elegantly simple on the upper level with frosty silver decór, along with incorporating their coastal roots. On the lower level decór is festive, fun family Christmas.
The 14th annual Tour of Homes will feature four homes total and is set for 1-4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $12 apiece and are available in advance at Hy-Vee and First Bank & Trust and at the Brookings High School Commons the day of the event.
New this year to the Tour of Homes will be the Bobcat Bistro, run by Brookings ProStart Capstone students. They will offer coffee and pastries in the BHS Commons starting at 12:30 p.m.
The Freshmen FCCLA Chapter will also provide childcare for kids ages 2-10 during the tour, also at the high school commons. Childcare is open to anyone who has purchased a ticket for the tour, and the cost is a freewill offering. Children will have the opportunity to participate in activities such as crafts, games and a holiday movie.
