Finding a tranquil haven in the middle of a bustling city is virtually impossible, but the developers at Home Solutions have managed to design a chic hideaway snuggled warmly in the lush setting of Moka Valley. Only moments away from restaurants, entertainment, several beaches, and some of the best golfing green in Trinidad, Eighteen Moka is inspired by the beauty of the natural surroundings and redefines the luxury living experience with chic appointments. Set inside the gates of the golf course, with few neighbours, the development also offers quick access to nearby cities.
The Developers wanted each unit to cater to Trinidadians’ penchant for liming outdoors by designing open spaces that welcome homeowners and guests from the minute they enter. “We hope to expand the possibilities and potential of local architecture, to capture the increasing need for quality luxury living and promote sustainability as a critical design component.
We understand Trinis love to experience the outdoors and dislike restrictive spaces. Each home’s unique design and uninhibited arrangement seeks to replicate the way Trinis love to interact with spaces and is our favourite feature of the home
Understanding the importance of more economical and sustainable living, the developers outfitted each home with energy-efficient lighting throughout the kitchen, hallway, bathroom and bedroom spaces. An added elegant touch is the hidden power outlets concealed by stainless steel flush plates.
Every effort was made to ensure expansive views of the golf course are possible from each unit, by means of generous floor-to-ceiling windows along the front façade. We’ve also adapted the buildings to the slope of the land, using intermittent steps from the kitchen at the back to the dining and living spaces to the front, so that the building opens up to consume the scenic Moka hills beyond,” says the design team. Considering the iffy weather of late, those gorgeous, great big windows are made of hurricane-resistant uPVC, meaning they’re low maintenance and provide excellent energy savings and thermal performance.
Additional technical features include a cutting-edge HVAC Inverter system and dehumidifier (such as Aprilaire®), which protects from mildew, eliminates musty odours and reduces the growth of allergens to create a comfortable and healthy home. The hits keep on coming as the HVAC management systems are compatible with smartphones; which means the homeowner has full control and can feel secure their home is in their own good hands. All bedrooms and living rooms will include outlets for phone and data access; which also makes it easier for home automation.
On the design side, homes will feature Italian-engineered wooden interior doors with a semisolid interior core, as well as other durable engineered wood and porcelain tiles throughout. Meanwhile, out on the front patio, a durable composite decking flooring system and a private pool are designed to withstand the hot Caribbean sun and heavy foot traffic from parents, kids and hounds alike. The most important room in the house, the kitchen, will have modern stainless-steel appliances. Additional accessories include double under-mounted sinks, soft-close runners, shark-nose handles and a breakfast nook for easy mealtimes. Standard regulation smoke and heat detectors are also installed, and each home will include video door-entry and alarm systems.
Whether you’re a busy professional or looking to enjoy the quiet life, the refinement of EighteenMoka’s enviable location, modern design, advanced technologies, and endless views of the Moka Valley will fit the bill entirely. All you have to do is move in and get on with the business of living.
