The 2017 edition of the Saratoga Showcase of Homes, just concluding its 22nd year, was another spectacular event with 14 award-winning builders presenting 18 homes. This year’s tour had nearly 4000 visitors touring these beautiful new homes on display over three weekends. The builder’s artistry along with the many talented designers who helped showcase their fine work gave our community an opportunity to preview current trends in building, landscaping, decorating and interior design. In what has become an autumn tradition in our area, the Saratoga Builders Association is dedicated to this long running show being an integral part of the fabric in our fall season.
