Maison Residences Sets New Standard
By Gabriel Sanchez
Nestled on the oceanside of Islamorada, Maison Residences are raising the bar on the idea of island living. The brand new private beachfront under construction promises details such as oversized outdoor terraces to high-end designer finishes. No aspect has been overlooked — think communal fishing dock, tiki hut, oasis lagoon pool, Jacuzzi, and a pet friendly atmosphere.
The homes will offer both security and privacy. Enclosed parking and storage offer peace of mind and a private-access elevator will carry residents to their condominium — only. Before reaching the front door, however, an open plan foyer provides separate entry for guest accommodations complete with private bathroom and balcony. Stylish wood flooring spans wall to wall throughout the living quarters and hurricane impact windows protect the home without impeding the ocean view.
“The homes come with a large, finished terrace. But because the units will feature 9 foot sliders, the living space can be extended out to include the terrace,” said Kym Allenby of Maison Residences. “And then the buyers can personalize the space with a fireplace, barbecue or cabinets.”
One of the homes’ best built-in features will be “smart” technology. Systems can be programmed to welcome owners with timed lighting, brisk air conditioning, and personally selected music. The planned security system features remote access, so homeowners can check on the abode while they are away.
“Smart home technology enables home owners to access various features remotely. Remote control security cameras can oversee the safety of your home from anywhere on the globe,” said Chris Gratton, of Keys Contracting Services. “With endless customizable options at your fingertips, the smart home technology is worth the investment.”
Keys Contracting Services are constructing the 12 new Maison Residences to be situated alongside the 9 units constructed almost 20 years ago. Maison Residences are scheduled to be complete in 2018. The oceanfront three- and four-bedroom residences range from 2,500 to 3,000 square feet, and begin at $2.2 million. Maison Residences Condominiums are located at MM 80, Islamorada.
The Maison Residences will feature quartz Caesarstone. The brandname quartz, considered as good-as or better-than granite, are resistant to scratch and stain and nonporous. Because of the material’s durability, it can be sliced thin and still stand up to extreme heat and cold. In addition, they are nearly maintenance-free. Homeowners can forgo the onerous annual sealing treatment required of granite.
