5 Important Features of a Custom-Built Luxury Home | GMT Inside Homes


Hello everyone! Bill Goodale, Century 21
here at beautiful 80 Ennisclare Drive East in Southeast Oakville to
highlight the five important features of a truly custom built home that separate
the best from the rest. Come on in. #1 the limestone veneer, when building your custom dream home there are a number of options for the exterior veneer – wood,
stucco, stone, the most popular and most attractive is limestone exterior. There
are a number of full products in the market to provide the look of stone
veneer but only 100 percent natural limestone provides that nature made
versatility and durability that ensures a lifetime of beauty and
energy-efficient performance each piece is hand cut and dressed by a
team of skilled Masons the cost is significantly more however the results
are clearly worth it. This home unlike some lower end builds is completely
encased in limestone on all four sides. #2 appliance package. It’s true
the kitchen is the heart of every home and the most important room when it
comes to valuation and the appliance package you select is key. This kitchen
here at 80 Ennisclare features a Wolf sixty inch range cooktop oven with
skillet Sub-Zero double 36 inch stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, Sub-Zero 30 inch wine fridge and two Miele custom panel benchmark series
dishwashers and a Sub-Zero under counter wine fridge. This appliance package is
exceptional and second to none totalling nearly $100,000. #3 plaster crown molding. Crown molding and ceiling detailing is an
excellent way to bring a dash of sophistication to your home. There’s many options out there to choose from – MDF, wood, but nothing beats plaster crown molding detailing. Today plaster is still synonymous with luxury, the fact that
plaster is a more expensive option than wood means that it tends to be used in
grander properties. Thanks for the way that plaster is cast you have the option
to create more elaborate profiles not possible with timber. Plaster moldings
are unique because they involve formulation and insulation by its
skilled craftsmen. Traditional plaster molding is desirable and can last
hundreds of years. Plaster does not shrink, shift or swell and with the changes in
temperature and humidity, it’s fire resistant, create’s an effective sound
barrier, is does not give off gas toxic fumes and will not trigger allergies. #4 site finish hardwood flooring. Flooring is one of the most important aspects of
any home. Hardwood flooring comes in two types – site-finished and pre-finished. Site-finished hardwood while more expensive can’t be beat in terms of durability,
attractiveness and overall appeal. Site- finished hardwood floors are stained,
sanded and finished after their installation. The surface is smooth with
an even finish with no beveled edges or grooves. They can be refinished several
times and can be customized to incorporate design borders and inlays.
They are easier to clean, repair, match with your existing flooring and dirt and
liquid don’t penetrate the subfloor. You may have heard the term quarter sawn
hardwood these quarter sawn hardwood boards are cut from the center of the
log providing a superior grain finish and look that can’t be beat.
While quarter sawn oak is more expensive than plain sawn the value it provides
in terms of structural integrity and beauty make it the obvious choice. It’s
more stable than plain sawn boards and expands/contracts far less.
#5 radiant floor heating. The best sort of heating at home is one you
don’t see or hear no clanking radiators or blowing air vents. Radiant floor
heating provides a nice even warm heat throughout the home which rises through
all levels. That’s the appeal of radiant floor heating it’s truly invisible and a
highly efficient way to heat a house increasing comfort as it reduces energy
costs. With radiant heating warmth is supplied by hot water tubes incased in the concrete flooring the heat from the basement floor rises reaching all levels
of the home. Conventional forced air heating found in most homes is
significantly less efficient if air must be circulated throughout the home heat
loss is inevitable this system of heating makes your living environment
dry and comfortable and far from flooring and furniture. Well that’s it for today folks
thanks for joining me at 80 Ennisclare Drive East, have a great day.
