The 61-year-old mid-century modern at 10242 Creekmere Dr. is a fully renovated home. But unlike many quick-turn renovations, which are meant to maximize sales, here “everything was very thoughtfully done, and done over time,” listing agent Kyle Brinkley says.
The current owners moved into the Eastwood property back in 2006, and over the years they’ve made updating the home their passion project. They had a specific vision for the home, keeping its mid-century roots while elevating with some more modern touches, and they put thought and care into executing it.
Outside, they re-cladded the exterior with stacked stone, replaced siding, and redid the front porch. In the back, they installed a massive resort-style pool, decking, a putting green, and artificial turf.
Inside, they removed some walls to open the flow of the floorplan, while keeping others to maintain a separation between spaces. They installed level 5 drywall, which Brinkley says elevates the entire feel. “I mean, it is perfect,” he says. “I have not seen any kind of imperfection in the wall, which is absolutely amazing to me.”
The owners used the same cabinetry throughout the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms. They changed out all the switches, plugs, faceplates, and hinges to stainless steel to coordinate with the kitchen’s cabinet doors and Thermador appliance suite. Both bathrooms use the same marble tile. When changing up the floorplan, they took care to align window and doorway sightlines. However all those details are just the beginning, Brinkley says.
“This is a house [where] you may like all the pretty things,” Brinkley says, “but I think you don’t really truly appreciate it until you live there and recognize all the other stuff that’s not fun to spend money on is done.”
From a systems standpoint, the whole house has been updated in the past few years, he says. There’s new AC, plumbing, electric, and gas. During the renovations, they put in foam insulation and wired it for sound and cameras. “They did it right.”
