Smart Homes – Modern Marvel
Modern. Warm. Playful. Fun. Exquisite. These are just a few words that describe the majestic abode at 101 North Mystic Creek Circle, located on a corner lot and neighborhood entry thoroughfare. Designed and built by Smart Homes, this story-and-a-half home offers serious uniqueness and style to its owner from the second you step foot on the property. The exterior is a beautiful mixture of not just one, but two stone types and colors, creamy white stucco and roof lines that accentuate the interior space creation.
As soon as you enter the two-story foyer, the fun vibrations are flowing. Funky wallpaper, a balcony from the second floor and views all the way through the home and to the backyard and pond keep you on your toes. Proceeding to the main living area, past the office and bathroom, you enter the kitchen where your mind will be churning with all the excitement of the curated finishes and materials in this dreamy space. The kitchen is truly one of a kind, with the most unique and impressive mixture of finishes. The cabinets are a slab style with a walnut wood veneer paired perfectly with two types of countertops: a solid dark gray for the perimeter and the other, a natural quartzite stone that waterfalls down the large 10’ island. The island is crowned with on-trend reed pendant lights, giving the space definition and height. The appliances are black stainless, adding a panache and complimenting the wall pattern. A final layer of the next level is the hood vent finish, which was done in the island’s counter material – very appealing and dramatic.
Off the dining space is the nicely designed laundry space and garage entryway. The intimate dining area features a sputnik light fixture that compliments the space, as well as the furnishings. Four-panel double slider doors frame the view of the exterior spaces in the back of the home. Back here are the large concrete patio and entertainment spaces that overlook a beautiful body of water, perfect for entertaining or just spending a night at home with family.
Beyond the dining room and kitchen is a two-story living space that is open and airy, but also cozy and quaint. The two-story windows and stacked stone fireplace spans from the floor to the 20’ ceilings, cohesively aligning with the open stairway to the second floor, working in tandem to gel the lower and upper levels. The windows flanking the fireplace from floor to ceiling add to the majesty of this space.
Moving to the second floor, you will find 5 bedrooms, the primary bedroom and bath and an amazing in-home theatre. The second-floor rooms stretch along the hallway, leading to the intricate metal railing and light fixture at the balcony overlooking the foyer. The primary bedroom is a place of peace and tranquility, with a well-proportioned bedroom and a top-notch bathroom. The bedroom has its own slider door and covered deck off the back of the home which overlooks the backyard, pond and neighborhood. The bathroom vanity offers dual sinks with a light gray stone countertop, black matte faucets, round mirrors and is topped with brass integrated LED light fixtures.
In the basement, you will find a speakeasy art deco vibe, with a cozy intimate space for gaming, watching football on the big screen or playing poker with friends late into the long winter nights. The concrete floors are coated in epoxy, the sheen resembling water, giving it a ritzy look. The bar space is perfect for displaying specialty bottles and collections, with open wood shelves and an oh-so-dazzling wallpaper that contracts with the rich granite and cabinetry. Topping the cool vibe of this space is a massive vault door, making anyone feel as if they are on an HGTV show in Hollywood. The home’s lower level includes a moody yet lovely half bath with dark-painted walls, a live-edge countertop with a black pedestal sink and matching black faucet, and of course, its own unique splash – wallpaper on the ceiling.
From head to toe, 101 North Mystic Creek Circle is dripping in detail. Every space has its own unique light fixtures, wallpaper, wall color and added panache, making this home and each space custom to its occupants.
