The Nationals Awards ceremony is one of the highlights of the National Association of Home Builders International Builders Show held January 10-12 in Orlando, Florida.

During a three-day judging process, a panel of seven industry professionals from across the country determined the Gold and Silver award winners from a field of more than 1,100 entries.

Toll Brothers dominated the Best Outdoor Living Space category, taking four of the five Silver Awards for home communities in California and Arizona. Talon Ranch was the only Arizona community to be recognized — and ultimately win.

“The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovations in new home design, marketing and sales,” said Meredith Oliver, chairperson of The Nationals. “NAHB’s commitment to recognizing originality, imagination and success has been exemplified by its award winners since the competition’s inception.”

The Best of Outdoor Living Space was judged on concept, creativity and impact of furniture and accessories. The Trovilla model, set upon a Sonoran desert backdrop with views of Pinnacle Peak and Four Peaks mountain ranges, represents al fresco living at its finest.

With design and landscape by Creative Environments based in Tempe, the Trovilla’s outdoor spaces rival the most famous five-star resorts with desert contemporary style, functionality and luxury.

Designed for entertaining, the Trovilla features a dramatic great room seamlessly overflowing onto an oversized covered patio through expansive multi-slide doors. The light-filled dining room and bonus room each open onto an additional covered patio.

The backyard is awe-inspiring with another oversized patio surrounded by a spectacular negative edge pool and cascading water features. This extraordinary swim-up covered patio is also accessible via concrete steps over the pool, adding to its uniqueness and exceptionality.

Add private sitting areas as well as a designated area for playing lawn games and it’s the perfect setting for outdoor enjoyment on a grand scale.

In keeping with the natural terrain, natural desert landscaping with boulder outcroppings grace all of the outdoor living spaces and courtyards encompassing the Trovilla model home estate. Thirty-three home sites at Talon Ranch each average more than one acre.
