The Chelsea, another compact yet spacious Tamarack Model Homes town house, features mostly standard finishes. If you have seen the previous models, designed by Sonya Kinkade Design and Modecor, you will notice The Dover, The OxfordThe Madison and The Hudson had a selection of standard and upgrade finishes as a jump off to creating an affordable, comfortable and unique house that buyers could appreciate. The Chelsea was designed to inform potential buyers that choosing standard finishes need not imply that a home will be boring. In fact exactly the opposite was achieved. We decided this home would be our contemporary Black and White model. By adding tons of texture, pattern, warm finishes, themed artwork, wallpaper and elements of the unexpected, we created a home that surrounds and compliments the more affordable standard finishes.

The Floorplan


The floor plan shown above is the mirror image of the actual Chelsea Model at Poole Creek. Because this was the model home chosen to have the least upgrades, very little was altered in this floor plan. The first floor fireplace however sports an upgraded floor to ceiling porcelain tile surround.  Unlike the other models, the raised counter on the kitchen island remained as did the standard fireplace surround in the finished basement.

The Finishes

Choosing mostly standard finishes allowed us to maintain the allotted budget for the Chelsea model. Standard oak floors, laminate counters, flat panel doors, and porcelain tile were chosen for the kitchen finishes. The only upgrade in the kitchen was the glass tile backsplash.
