Smithville Station, a new townhouse and single-family home development by the award-winning Marz Homes, is much more than a place to live. It’s a destination for living well. Located in Smithville — centrally positioned between Niagara’s attractions (hello, wine country) and 20km from Hamilton’s booming industry — the new development is poised to become the next hotspot for homebuyers desiring an elevated, quant lifestyle — without the exorbitant price tag. At Smithville Station, you get more house for your money, without compromising your lifestyle in the least. Singles start from the $570,000s and freehold townhomes begin at just $429,990. This is a bargain compared to the current prices throughout the GTA.
Located at 205 Saint Catharines Street, there will be 116 homes in the thoughtfully-designed community — with equally thoughtful floorplans boasting contemporary architecture, spacious layouts, and luxurious features and finishes. To get a closer look, Marz Homes released a virtual walk-through of the Cerulean model home, allowing viewers to step inside and experience the spacious layout and designer finishes for themselves.
The tour begins at the front of the house, sporting a sleek exterior design and a commanding colonial-style front door — a luxurious theme that repeats throughout the house. Each house is framed by stately architectural details and materials including a brick facade (as you see in the video) and punctuated by large keystone windows. The door opens into a spacious hallway with ample storage closets and a powder room tucked behind the custom doors on the left and right.
Next, viewers find themselves in the heart of the ground floor — the expansive living and dining room areas that connect to the gourmet, chef-inspired kitchen. With an open-concept layout, there are clear sightlines throughout. Marz Homes knows that the kitchen is the central hub of the home — that’s why they’ve included a chef’s island in almost every home design. Stylish designer hardware and extra storage (thanks to deep, 13-inch upper cabinetry) create the perfect backdrop for elevated dining. With farm fresh market produce and fabulous wine available along the Niagara Wine Trail, embracing farm-to-table living has never been easier. Adding to the ambiance, a fireplace frames the living room and is anchored on each side by large doors that open onto the back deck, allowing light to flood the entire space.
The second storey’s welcoming sleeping quarters are designed to be a luxurious retreat, with generously-sized bedrooms (three to four bedrooms, as per plan), spacious closets and beautiful ensuites with a shower and a separate soaker tub (varies per plan). The master bedroom will transport homeowners to their own private oasis, The video tour also shows a washer and dryer, conveniently and cleverly located behind double doors.
Large, traditional full-sized lots are standard at Smithville Station, with some as deep as 140 feet. This isn’t exclusive of the singles either, long driveways and deep backyards are defining features of the freehold townhomes as well. If that wasn’t enough, all the homes come with instant curb appeal with included landscape packages for every home.
The construction quality can be seen in details big and small throughout the development. In the wall separating the townhomes from each other, the builders have gone to great lengths to construct the dividing ‘party wall’ with concrete block as a standard feature. Although this method takes more time and can be more costly, Marz Homes knows it provides peace of mind for homebuyers — ensuring fire protection, noise reduction and privacy between neighbours.
The community itself has a prime, walkable location in Smithville — just a stone’s throw away from Main Street shopping, community services and more. The area is lush in natural beauty and close to parks, sporting fields, a naturalized community pond, walking trails and more. Transit access to the GTA will soon arrive with GO Train stations along the QEW on Centennial in Hamilton and in Grimsby, which are scheduled to be completed by 2021 — positioning Smithville to become the next up-and-coming neighbourhood in southwestern Ontario.
Smithville Station is just the latest community from the award-winning Marz Homes, which has more than 40 years of experience building homes throughout southwestern Ontario.
