There is no place like home and for the Dawahare family, home happens to be located in the heart of historic Chevy Chase. Experiencing a day in the life of Stephen and Joy Beth Dawahare and their four little ones: eldest son Hayden at nine years, daughter Brooke at seven years, daughter Anna at four years and son Madden at one year, you are immediately swept up by the warmth and charm of their family, and their gorgeous 7,800 square foot home. Joy Beth says, “There is no place like being in the heart of Chevy Chase where you catch the trolley to go dine at your favorite restaurants or walk to locally owned shops for an afternoon out.” Stephen adds, “Our home is so convenient to everything. We have three out of four kids in activities and can access multiple locations quickly because we are ideally located in central Lexington. We have been blessed with great neighbors and our street has a mixture of young families moving in as well as people who have enjoyed living here for years.” The Dawahare home also provides a wonderful venue for entertaining loved ones and during the summer, since so people frequent the house or enjoy the pool and grill out, many have coined it “Club D’s.” Stephen, owner of the private equity and venture capital firmed called iVisionary is originally from Lexington and grew up out Tates Creek Road while Joy Beth who is from Owensboro came to school at the University of Kentucky and has been here ever since. Though their house was built in 1924 and just under 100 years old, it was completely renovated in the early 2000’s to give it all of the charm of a historic home combined with the amenities of a modern day dream home. The family credits Padgett Construction, Henkel Demark Landscaping, Lava Home Automation and Shelia Hancock to helping make the home what it is today. The Dawahares have enjoyed living there since the summer of 2003 and look forward to making many more memories here in the future with their children.
