Royal Club Homes are a Must-See on This Year’s 2019 Parade of Homes Tour

While it would be impossible to see all of the homes on this year’s Parade of Homes Tour, let us humbly say, there is one location that you don’t want to miss: The Royal Club.

Each of the six homes within the Royal Club on this year’s Parade of Homes Tour is unique, designed to fit a variety of personal styles and family needs. Built for luxury and reliability, these homes are situated next to the Royal Golf Club, a new course designed by golfing legends Annika Sörenstam and Arnold Palmer. Build in the heart of the St. Croix River Valley, the course features rolling hills and mature trees with beautiful views of Horseshoe Lake. Residents can ride their golf carts to and from the golf course, surrounded by lush greens and wildlife.

Royal Club homes are built by six of the finest home builders in Minnesota and feature high quality products such as Andersen doors and windows, James Hardie siding and trim, Trane HVAC systems, Kohler plumbing, Cambria countertops and Timbertech decking.

Jim Boo, Tracy Boo, Annika, and Scott

The Team Boo-High Pointe Realty sales team at the Royal Club is led by Jim Boo, Tracy Boo, and Scott Bougie, three highly experienced realtors who have been working in the East Metro area for many years. They have the experience and practical knowledge to guide homeowners through the buying and selling process; making it as stress-free as possible.

If you’re looking to see a beautiful house in a great location, with a welcoming community and a fun atmosphere, then the Royal Club is the place to start or end your Parade of Homes tour this year. While you’re here, be sure to stop by Arnie’s restaurant and the Royal Golf Clubhouse to grab some food, warm up, and have the full experience of living in this idyllic location.

Below are descriptions of each of the six Royal Club houses on display for the 2019 Parade of Homes Tour. Links to more information can be found under each house.
