UPPER MACUNGIE TWP., PA - January 19, 2018 – Sal Lapio Homes and Better Homes and Garden Valley Partners are pleased to announce that Hidden Meadows was recognized with the “Best Model Home to $350,000”, award presented by the Lehigh Valley Builders Association (LVBA). Over 200 members and guests attended the 27th Annual Awards Gala recently held at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem, in Bethlehem Pennsylvania.

The Awards for Professional Excellence program is a well-established competition among members of the LVBA.  Members submit communities to an independent panel of judges from outside of the Lehigh Valley for review.  Categories include Builder, Remodeler and Specialty Projects. "We are honored that Hidden Meadows was selected as the “Best Model Home to $350,000”, in the Lehigh Valley for 2017," said Sal Lapio, president of Allentown-based Sal Lapio Homes. "Each and every one of us in the company takes great pride in this distinctive collection of townhomes located in Upper Macungie Township's scenic rolling countryside.  I am proud to accept this prestigious award on behalf of our dedicated staff and associates who have worked so hard to create Hidden Meadows and distinguish it as one of the area's most desirable new home communities."

The Lehigh Valley Builders Association particularly noted Hidden Meadows' long list of interior, exterior and construction features highlighted in their award submission which contributed to the community winning the Best Model Home award.  Many included features at Hidden Meadows, other builders consider upgrades such as; granite countertops in a choice of 5 colors, 42-inch upper kitchen cabinets, truly wide open kitchen/breakfast nook/family room floorplans, arched two-panel interior doors with nickel hardware throughout, a 5-foot oversized shower with bench seating in select models.  Dual master suites are also offered with each home. 

Close attention was paid to the overall community plan, such as inviting tree-lined sidewalks on both sides of the street and eight acres of picturesque open space to encourage social interaction among neighbors.  Streetscapes were carefully considered and integrate decorative partial stone fronts, six-inch beaded vinyl siding, 30-year architectural roof shingles and carriage house-style garage doors.

Additionally, every townhome at Hidden Meadows is constructed with 95.5% Energy Star-rated gas hot air heating, Energy Star-rated low E windows with Argon gas, R-19 exterior wall insulation and R-38 ceiling insulation.  Sound transmission control of the common walls between the individual homes, adds to the enjoyment of the homeowners by making them feel more private.  Homeowners enjoy a more carefree lifestyle because all lawn care and snow removal of the public sidewalks are handled by the community association.  A ten year homeowner's warranty gives an added measure of confidence to every Homeowner at Hidden Meadows.
