ST. GEORGE — It is called “Arabesque,” a shape that brings to mind the graceful, almost unending line made by a ballet dancer, and it is this shape that flows throughout House 24 in this year’s “St. George Area Parade of Homes.”
Southern Utah’s annual home show opens Friday to thousands of visitors who come to partake in the unique design and custom craftsmanship that are staples of the St. George area parade homes.
House 24’s builder, K.H. Traveller Custom Homes, a specialized division of K.H. Traveller Development, is no stranger to the parade or the parade’s founder, Southern Utah Home Builders Association. K.H. Traveller has been a part of the association since its beginning, Kason Traveller, president of the custom homes division, said.
Kason Traveller, oldest son of Kay H. Traveller — a well-known developer with over 45 years experience — grew up around construction sites and was mentored by leaders in the construction industry, according to promotional material on the developer’s website. It is that kind of longevity and love for the work that made K.H. Traveller Custom Homes an ideal choice to design and build a celebrity’s home for this year’s Parade.
The home is located in the luxury gated community of Stone Cliff, a K.H. Traveller development, where K.H. Traveller Custom Homes has really made its mark. Though they will build anywhere and at most price ranges, Traveller said, they specialize in high-end custom homes designed for Stone Cliff.
“We build more houses up here,” Traveller said. “We understand it.”
The process for this year’s home began in April 2015, Traveller said, adding that its famous, soon-to-be resident was heavily involved in each step.
“It was a fun process,” Traveller said. “(The client) was very humble and not afraid to try new things.”
Although the developer is known for its attention to detail, Traveller said, it has never built a house with this much detail before. From speckles of glitter on the garage floor to the very minutae including the mechanical access covers, “Arabesque” maintains its theme and flow from the front gate to the backyard.
One of Traveller’s favorite spaces in the home is the children’s playroom, something he said evolved as the design went along.
“It turned into something pretty magical,” Traveller said.
Home 24, “Arabesque,” is located in Stone Cliff at 2627 E. Diamond Ridge Circle, St. George. The “St. George Area Parade of Homes” kicks off Friday and continues through Feb. 21. Homes are open for viewing from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily except closing day. Hours on Feb. 21 will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
