The Meadows at 97th Ave. and Deer Valley Road

Expect the unexpected. When it comes to appliances, the big builders don't take a lot of chances. For most family new home communities you're likely to see dishwasher, range, over-the-range microwave, and refrigerator from one of the two big brands GE or Whirlpool.

But homebuilder K. Hovnanian stepped out of the appliance box in one of the model homes in their new model complex at The Meadows. They decided to be a little different. Maybe that's an understatement. These retro-look appliances in bright turquoise are WAY different from what we're used to seeing.

The appliances are stunning because of their color and retro design, but more than that they're whimsical and fun. I stood in the model and watched prospective home buyers flow through. The appliances didn't just capture their attention. Their faces lit up with big smiles. And why not. The kitchen look is just plain delightful.


Now, would you really want these appliances in your house? Northstar is the brand. They come from Elmira Stove Works, a Canadian outfit. Famous for their 1890's style woodburning and gas ranges, Northstar is big step forward to the 1950's for Elmira.

However, outside of the retro look, the appliances themselves are in fact very contemporary. The range is self-cleaning, and comes complete with warming drawer, and a digital display which is subtly hidden beneath the analog clock. The French door refrigerator is frost-free. It features an interior water dispenser, and factory-installed icemaker.

Now, if you're still not convinced and worried about the upstart Northstar brand, we'll share a little secret. The design and look is 100% Northstar, but (except for the microwave oven) these appliances are all manufactured in the U.S. by a very well-known appliance company.

To see these appliances in all their stunning glory for yourself, visit the model homes at The Meadows by K. Hovnanian at 97th Ave. and Deer Valley Road, in Peoria. For more information about Northstar Appliances contact the appliance professionals at Arizona Wholesale Supply
