Oak Hill Grand Estate Interior by Theory Design Selected As Home & Design Magazine’s February Signature Home

Fort Myers Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi and Lead Designer Adriene Ged designed the interior for Seagate Development Group’s previously sold furnished Oak Hill grand estate model at Quail West. The Oak Hill model’s stunning interior design was selected as Home & Design Magazine’s February Signature Home. The residence features an architectural design by RG Designs, and custom landscaping, an outdoor living area, and a pool designed by Outside Productions.

The Oak Hill residence includes 5,760 square feet under air plus an outdoor living area featuring an outdoor kitchen with an island bar and dining area, a conversation area with a fireplace, a pool with sun shelves, six bubblers, and a raised spa, and a trellised area with a fire pit. A parlour overlooks the pool. A dining area with a glass-encased walk-in wine room and a bar is situated between the parlour and the great room and double-island kitchen. The great room opens to the outdoor conversation area. The plan includes three guest suites, two of which open to the outdoors. A study also overlooks the outdoors. The owner’s bedroom features a sitting area with sliders opening to a covered patio. Walk-in closets and a morning bar are positioned in a hallway leading to an owner’s bathroom with his and her vanities and water closets. The bath also features a walk-in shower and a free-standing tub. Captivating ceiling designs are found throughout the home.

Ruta and Adriene’s design for the Oak Hill model’s clean-lined interior blurs the line between the indoors and outdoors. An organic color palette features warm white and soft canvas backgrounds with hints of green and black, including black window frames. The color scheme is anchored by light oak hardwood flooring. Numerous features bring the outdoors in, including a poolside trellised area and a shower in the master bath overlooking a garden. Floor to ceiling windows contribute to the clean, organic feeling of the design.

The foyer’s view of the spa and pool deck establishes the Oak Hill’s connection to the outdoors. The ceiling in the foyer and parlour features a reverse soffit with backlighting and a tray detail. Four chairs and a cocktail table are positioned adjacent to the walk-in wine room and provide a place to enjoy the view.

The dining room also provides views of the outdoors and a bubbler water feature. An island bar features floating shelves set in front of a window, a bar sink, pendant lighting over a quartzite counter, and an undercounter refrigerator and ice maker. Three windows offer views of the landscaping at the front of the home.

The great room accommodates a seating area with a sofa, end tables, a cocktail table, and four side chairs. A built-in media center graces the feature wall. Pocketing sliders open the space to the outdoors. One island in the kitchen offers seating and feature pendant lighting fixtures. A second island provides a food preparation space. The Thermadore appliance package features paneled fronts. A butler’s pantry is located off the kitchen.

The study features a window with black trim and a reverse soffit ceiling with rope lighting. The connection to the outdoors continues in the master bedroom where sliders open the sitting area to a covered patio. A hallway with a morning bar and walk-in closets leads to a master bath with dual water closets, a walk-in shower, a free-standing tub, and dual vanities. A window in the shower provides a view of a walled garden.
