M/I Homes Charlotte Opens Creekshire Estates Model Near Lake Wylie

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Visitors to the new M/I Homes Charlotte model home in Creekshire Estates, now open, will see the company's commitment to style: The model home has been designed by internationally acclaimed design firm Mary Cook Associates, headquartered in Chicago. Among other projects, Mary Cook Associates worked with Donald Trump and his family to design the Trump International Hotel & Tower model units in Chicago.

At Creekshire Estates, a top-selling community in southwest Charlotte near the Steele Creek area and Lake Wylie, buyers can choose from two- and three-story homes with finished lower levels. With prices ranging from $204,490 to $329,354, and home plans ranging from 2,443 to 3,294 square feet, M/I Homes in Creekshire Estates offers an array of options to suit many tastes and budgets.

The model home, from a plan called The Pierre C, includes a butler's pantry with wine storage, mother-in-law suite, and large deck connecting to the master bedroom. The lower level is featured as a family entertainment area, including game room with pool table and walk-up bar, plus a bedroom, study, and second large deck. The plan includes up to five bedrooms, three full baths, two-car garage, covered porch, bedrooms with tray ceilings, and plenty of storage in a wooded community.

The chic color palette featuring shades of grey with chartreuse accents, along with the carefully planned layout for an active couple or family, are designed to feel especially comfortable and welcoming. "We think Mary Cook's involvement has brought a new level of sophistication to model home design in Charlotte," says Tamara Lynch, M/I Homes Charlotte's vice president of sales and marketing.

Mary Cook Associates has created do-it-yourself worksheets to help buyers recreate special features in the home. "Because of the unique partnership with M/I Homes, we are able to take customization to a whole new level," Cook says. "The design experience is not just about picking paint colors and countertops, but rather a holistic approach to how you live in your home. We use seven fundamental design principles – objective, function & livability, scale & proportion, light, color, pattern & textures and significant & relevant ornament – to create spaces that elevate emotions and improve lives."
