Wonderful colour contrasts and loads of space give the beautifully designed kitchen and dining area in this Sage Creek home a nice blend of style and function.

The foyer features a beamed ceiling and tile floor in a modern diamond-shaped pattern.

What does a builder have to keep in mind when they conceive a luxury home plan that’s designed to appeal to more than one demographic?

In a word, balance.

That means the home must offer a seamless synergy of flair and function, deftly combining a user-friendly layout with tasteful finishes and subtle design details that endow it with utility and style from start to finish.

Eden Namaka, sales representative for Maric Homes’ 2021 Fall Parade of Homes show home at 16 Siskin Bay in Sage Creek, says that the longtime custom home builder has come up with a design that perfectly combines classic style with modern flair.

"It’s a wonderfully designed home that works for pretty much everyone, from a family to empty nesters," she says of the 1,800-square-foot bungalow, which comes with five bedrooms and three full baths. "The attention to detail and craftsmanship seen throughout the home is unmatched."

That combination is on display the moment you step inside in the form of a striking yet functional foyer.

Featuring a beamed ceiling and tile floor with eye-catching off-white and dark brown diamond-shaped pattern, it welcomes you inside in modern, yet warm style.

"It really makes a statement, adding warm elements to a modern home," says Namaka. "The ceiling works perfectly with the floor, and the foyer is subtly defined by being sunken down one step from the main floor. An eight-foot front door also adds an extra touch of style."

The home’s functional side then asserts itself once you step from the foyer into a wide landing area between the foyer and great room.

Right on cue, there’s a handy mud/laundry room to the left and a wing to the right that holds a trio of spaces.

"Two secondary bedrooms with eight-foot doors were placed on either side of a beautiful four-piece bath," she says. "The bathroom, with its high ceiling and gorgeous tile work around the bathtub, is as luxurious as many ensuites. And the bedroom at the end of the hall, with its high ceiling and huge window, makes a perfect office with everyone working from home these days."

As is the case with every Maric home, every detail of the home’s design has been well-thought-out, including the placement of the primary bedroom.

Tucked away down its own hallway between the mud/laundry room and family room — the mud/laundry room was cleverly used to separate it from the secondary bedrooms on the opposite side of the foyer and adjacent landing area — it’s one exceptionally private and luxurious space.

"Its highlight is a beautiful, milled feature wall behind the bed," Namaka says. "Add in a huge window that lets in lots of natural light, a high ceiling and gorgeous engineered oak hardwoods, and you have a naturally bright bedroom with a warm, inviting feel."

The primary bedroom is then finished off in quietly spectacular style by a three-piece ensuite that’s subtly separated from the bedroom by a huge walk-in closet.

"I just love the light fixtures — they’re a subtle detail, but they really work well with the tile floor, awesome floating vanity with its under-vanity lighting and a custom glass/tile walk-in shower with eight-foot-plus ceiling," she says. "The little details really make a difference."

The same could be said for the great room, which possesses an exceptionally high livability quotient.

"I’d say its high level of livability starts with the two huge windows behind the family room and dining area — they really maximize the entry of natural light, something that’s very important to Maric Homes."

Next, the generous amount of natural light is complemented perfectly by an ultra-navigable layout and tasteful, well-spotted finishes.

"With all the room to move, the great room is great for entertaining," says Namaka. "At the same time, the finishes, while modern, are soft and warm. The quartzite countertops in the kitchen are rich, and go beautifully with grey cabinetry, a taupe tile backsplash and a white, milled wall in the dining area. I also love the simple, white entertainment unit in the family room."

Downstairs, there’s another 1,000 square feet of livable space: a rec room with media and games areas, two oversized bedrooms, four-piece bath and plenty of storage space.

Namaka says not one detail was overlooked in the design of the stunning yet functional bungalow.

"It has a layout and style that suits pretty much everyone. It’s fully finished and move-in ready. All you need to do is pack your bags, move in and enjoy all the style and value that it offers."
