Lisbon's Twin Pine Farm subdivision featured in Parade of Homes

Aug. 20, 2014

Town of Lisbon — For the first time in at least 15 years, the Metropolitan Builders Association (MBA) is staging a Parade of Homes in the town of Lisbon and they are pleased with the success of the event.

Event Director Susan Noruk estimates there have been between 3,000 and 4,000 visitors during the first two weeks of the Parade of Homes at the Twin Pine Farm residential development that is located on the west side of Lake Five Road, north of Plainview Road and south of Highway Q, in the northwest corner of the town,

Twin Farm is one of three southeastern Wisconsin residential developments featured in the Parade of Homes that began on Aug. 9 and will continue through Labor Day weekend to Sept. 1. There are six homes on display.

The other developments are Hawks Glen in Mequon and Victoria Station in the City of Pewaukee.

"Attendance at Twin Farms has been holding pretty steady," she said. "There have been times when it has been the No. 1 attended of the three and there have been times it had the lowest attendance of the three," she added.

Easy to find

Noruk said the rural and remote location of the subdivision has apparently not bothered people and visitors have been able to locate it.

"We have a lot of people who visit Hawks Glen and Victoria Station and then go to Twin Pine. If they are coming from Mequon, they don't seem to have problems finding Highway Q and taking it to Lake Five Road. If they are coming from Pewaukee, they get on Highway 164 and turn on Plainview Road to Lake Five," she added.

Noruk reviewed Parade of Home records dating back to the year 2000 and found no evidence of a Parade of Homes event being held in the town of Lisbon.

The 250-acre property is being developed by B&N Development of Richfield. Twin Pine is being developed in three phases and will eventually have 160 lots, all of them at least one acre, according to the developer.

According to various real estate listings, lot prices varying from about $100,000 to 140,000. The subdivision is in both the Merton and Arrowhead school districts.

Home builders for Twin Pine include Aspen Homes Inc., Belman Homes Inc., Demlang Builders Inc., Joseph Douglas Homes, Victory Homes of Wisconsin Inc., and Woodhaven Homes and Realty, according to builders association officials.

Noruk explained that each year developers present proposals for their developments to be featured in the next year's Parade of Homes. Builders who are MBA members then select the developments that will be featured in the Parade of Homes.

Tickets for the Parade of Homes are available at the entrances to the locations. Prices are $10 for adults, $6 for seniors and children 3 to 12.

Adult tickets are available at discounted prices if purchased online or through several advance ticket locations. The advance ticket locations are listed on MPAparadeofhomes.com.
