Theory Design announced Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi has completed the preliminary interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Monterey model in the Isola Bella neighborhood at Talis Park in North Naples.  A 4.5-acre enclave of 17 single-family waterfront homes being developed by Seagate, Isola Bella is situated adjacent to the Talis Park community’s Grand Piazza that showcases the Great Lawn and the award-winning Vyne House clubhouse.  Seagate anticipates beginning construction of the Monterey model this month.  A second model featuring Seagate’s Sonoma floor plan is already under construction.  Pricing for both models will be announced soon.

The two-story, 4,414 square feet under air Monterey model will include a foyer that leads to a sitting area, a wine room, a powder bath, a VIP guest suite, and an elevator.  Beyond the sitting area, the plan’s primary living space features a spacious, flowing living area that includes a great room, a dining area with a wet bar and built-in cabinetry, and an island kitchen with a walk-in pantry.  The living area opens to a massive outdoor living space with a dramatic fireplace, an outdoor kitchen with an L-shaped bar, a covered conversation area and casual dining area, a pool bath, and a multi-level deck with a spill-over pool and spa.  Upstairs, the master suite and a loft open to a sundeck that is ideal for relaxing and entertaining.  The master suite features two large walk-in closets and a bath with separate water closets, separate vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.  Two guest suites with private baths and a second laundry room are also included upstairs.  A powder bath is included in the loft.  The Monterey plan also features a three-car garage.

The Monterey will present a modern coastal feeling with soft neutral grey and white backgrounds, walnut accents, and warm wire brushed grey oak flooring.  The clean-lined interior will feature reversed-soffit ceiling details in the living areas.  The home’s entry sequence will include lush landscaping and a soothing water feature.  A double door will open to a foyer with a two-story ceiling, an open staircase leading to the upstairs, a powder bath, and an elevator.  The foyer also will provide points of entry to a private VIP guest suite, a massive walk-in pantry and laundry room with built-in cabinetry and a second refrigerator, and the three-car garage.  A sitting room situated between the foyer and the great room will feature a reverse soffit ceiling and a see-through view of the glass encased walk-in wine room.

The Monterey’s first floor living area includes reverse soffit ceiling and cove lighting, an over-sized island featuring counter-height barstool seating in the kitchen, and a dining area that will accommodate seating for ten.  The kitchen will feature clean-lined cabinetry with soffits that will convey a built-in look, quartzite countertops, a cook-top with a canopy hood, and a built-in wall oven.  A wet bar with decorative glass upper cabinets is planned for the dining area.

The great room and dining area will open to the two-level outdoor living area with an infinity edge pool and a spill-over that provides a soothing water wall for those sitting by the firepit on the lower level.  The pool will include a side wall with waterspouts.  A custom spa will feature a sun shelf and LED illuminated bubblers.  The covered lanai’s fireplace, outdoor kitchen, L-shaped bar, conversation and dining areas, and pool bath will enhance the outdoor experience.

The Monterey’s upstairs will feature clean-lined reverse soffit ceiling details, a morning bar with an undercounter refrigerator, and a spacious loft that will open to a covered deck and an uncovered sundeck overlooking the water.  French doors in the master bedroom will also open to the covered deck.  The master bath will feature two large walk-in closets, separate water closets, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.  The two upstairs guest suites will feature private baths and nicely sized walk-in closets.

The two-story 4,012 square feet under air Sonoma model will feature an outdoor living area with conversation and dining areas, a fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, a pool bath, and a custom pool and spa.  The first floor of the open-concept design will include a foyer with a floor detail, a great room and dining area that open to the outdoor area, an island kitchen with a walk-in pantry, a powder bath, and a VIP guest suite.  A wine room and bar and a custom entertainment cabinet will be featured in the great room.  An elevator will lead to the second floor that will showcase a master suite with walk-in closets, a sitting area opening to a sun deck, and a bath with separate vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.  Two guest suites, a loft with a morning bar, and a study or exercise area are also included on the second floor.  The Sonoma also features a three-car garage.

Ruta Menaghlazi has created a clean-lined California coastal style for the Sonoma.  Seven-inch wide light wire brushed oak hardwood floors will combine with soft white ivory and tan backgrounds and tongue-in-groove ceilings to present a relaxed, elegant ambiance.  Prior to entering the home, visitors will experience a landscaped setting and the sound of a cascading water wall.  The foyer will lead to the great room and provide a view of the pool and the outdoor area.

A built-in spanning a portion of the feature wall will serve as a design highlight in the great room.  A bar with cabinetry and a stone countertop will be incorporated in one end of the built-in.  The opposite end will showcase a writing desk.  The space will also feature a walk-in wine room as well as a beamed ceiling detail matching the hardwood flooring that will extend into the kitchen and dining area.  The kitchen’s island will feature a base with a matte black finish, a waterfall counter surface and counter-height barstool seating.  Rectangular windows set high on the wall will provide natural light.  Wire-brushed oak cabinetry with a raised edge detail will be complimented by quartzite countertops and a tile or stone backsplash.  A custom matte black architectural hood detail will be positioned over the kitchen’s gas cooktop.

The great room and dining area will share a long pocketing slider that will connect the interior with an outdoor living area and a custom pool and spa designed by Outdoor Productions.  A three-level pool deck will overlook Talis Park’s splendid water views.  The top level will feature an infinity edge pool and a spa with fire bowls.  The second level will offer a seating area and the lowest level will feature a waterfront terrace with a fire pit.

A staircase with wire-brushed oak treads and risers, an oak railing, and dark metal balusters will lead to the upstairs where a central hallway will feature rectangular and square-shaped coffered ceiling details and lead to a second-floor sundeck.  The master bedroom and one of the two upstairs guest suites will open to the sundeck.  The master suite will include walk-in closets and a spa-like bathroom with creamy ivory natural stone flooring, separate vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.  An upstairs loft space will feature a morning bar and will be situated adjacent to a yoga room/study.
