North Olmsted, Ohio (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
Home remodeling enthusiasts around the country always look forward to the Country Living House of the Year -- and this year is no exception. Even through one of the coldest winters on record in New York, the Country Living team, alongside Catskill Farms and guest designers Suysel dePedro Cunningham and Anne Maxwell Foster of Tilton Fenwick, worked tirelessly to build this year’s home. Located in Rhinebeck, New York, a two-hour drive from New York City, the 2014 House of the Year is a 1,500 square foot “new old home” that captures the charm, beauty and character of the past. Moen is pleased to be a sponsor of the 2014 House of the Year, which will be open for complimentary tours to all Rhinebeck Country Living Fair ticket holders from Friday, June 6 through Sunday, June 8.
As a sponsor, Moen, the number one faucet brand in North America, is featuring traditionally styled products in the home that give a timeless, classic look. The home features the tasteful Waterhill® kitchen faucet in a Classic Stainless finish. Waterhill adds a touch of elegance with period-era details, like a gooseneck spout, bridge design and top finial, to give the faucet an authentic feel. The Classic Stainless finish coordinates beautifully with the rest of the appliances and accessories in the House of the Year.
The beauty of Waterhill extends into the bathroom with the two-handle, high-arc bathroom faucet. The Polished Nickel finish provides a mirror-like and warm metallic look – the faucet not only looks refined but it also meets EPA WaterSense® criteria to conserve water without sacrificing performance. Accessories like towels bars and a pivoting paper holder add convenience and luxury.
In the shower, the Weymouth® showerhead has distinctive accents like porcelain inlays that feature Euro-influenced decorative script and signature styling elements to make an extravagant statement. Beyond style, Moen’s Immersion™ rainshower technology channels water through the showerhead with three times more spray power than most rainshowers for a more thorough rinse. “Homeowners love traditional products for their charm and nostalgic feel – a style that lives on through generations,” said Beth Wallick, director of advertising and brand, Moen. “And today, Moen offers the best of both worlds – the beauty of historically inspired design beside modern efficiencies like water-savings and on-trend finishes.”
For those attending the Rhinebeck Country Living Fair, a shuttle bus will be provided from the Dutchess County Fairgrounds to the nearby House of the Year. The beautiful home will also be featured in the upcoming September issue of Country Living, on newsstands nationwide August 5.

Moen’s legacy of thoughtful design stemmed from an invention by Al Moen. In 1937, after burning himself at a sink with traditional single taps for hot and cold water, a young, determined Al Moen set about inventing a single-handle faucet designed to mix hot and cold. The invention, finalized in 1939, revolutionized the plumbing industry and set the stage for 75 years of innovation.
