Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi has completed the interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Captiva model at Hill Tide Estates that is now open for viewing and purchase.  Hill Tide Estates is a 9.98-acre gated enclave on the southern tip of Boca Grande being developed by Seagate.  Seagate and Theory Design have opened a Showroom situated in the heart of downtown Boca Grande’s heralded Historic District at 411 Park Avenue, Suite 1.  The Showroom presents home furnishings and finish selections available through Theory Design that are ideally suited to Hill Tide Estates’ island lifestyle.

Designed by RG Designs, the three-level Captiva floor plan includes 4,865 square feet under air and 11,184 square feet under roof.  The ground level features two multi-car garages, storage spaces, and a lower foyer with an elevator and a staircase leading to the upstairs.  The first living level features a great room, island kitchen, and dining area that open to the lanai, a study with an outdoor covered deck, and the master suite that includes a bedroom with a sitting area and elaborate ceiling details.  The master bath features separate vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.  An open staircase leads to the second living level that presents three guest ensuites, as well as a bonus room with a wet bar.  Outside Productions, Inc. is designing the Captiva’s landscaping, outdoor living area, pool, and spa.  In addition to a pool, spa, and pool deck, the outdoor living area includes a pool bath, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor dining and conversation areas.  The Captiva model is priced at $5,995,000 furnished.

The interior design for the Captiva model was inspired by the Gulf of Mexico.  The look conveys a coastal feeling with modern elements and hints of rustic flair.  Soft beige walls, blue and turquoise accents, and light oak hardwood flooring provide a connection to Hill Tide Estates’ spectacular beachfront setting.

A double-door entry at the top of the Captiva’s outdoor steps leads to the lower foyer that presents an open ceiling soaring to the top of the second living level.  An ocean-inspired art piece is placed above an attractive light-toned credenza.  In addition to the elevator, a staircase with open risers and treads finished to match the light oak flooring leads to the great room.  At the top of the stairs, a wooden railing with stainless steel pickets overlooks the lower foyer.

Pocketing sliders in the Captiva’s great room open to the home’s elevated pool deck and outdoor living area.  The great room ceiling features painted beam details that divide the ceiling into nine boxes finished with tongue and groove trim molding.  The great room’s feature wall showcases a medium grey-toned media console and a wall-mounted television flanked by art selections.  Additional furnishings include a light-toned modern sectional sofa, a console finished in white and medium wood tones, a rectangular wooden cocktail table, a wicker end table, and a pair of rustic wicker side chairs with light fabric.  A light blue area rug anchors the seating area.

In the kitchen, the island base cabinet’s deep grey finish plays against a natural stone quartzite counter surface.  Four counter-height warm wood barstools with tweed fabric and three hanging pendant lighting fixtures provide a comfortable gathering place at the island.  The perimeter cabinetry is finished in white and features stacked upper cabinets with glass door fronts and windows at the back to provide natural light.  A 48-inch gas Wolf range features a wooden hood finished in deep grey.  Other appliances include a 48-inch stainless steel built-in SubZero refrigerator and freezer, a Wolf microwave drawer at the island, and two Asko dishwashers.  A walk-in pantry features a 50-inch SubZero icemaker, a 22-cubic foot Whirlpool refrigerator, and an Electrolux washer and dryer.

An oversized medium-toned rectangular wooden dining table with rattan chairs seats eight in the adjacent dining area.  Three lantern-style lighting fixtures are suspended over the table.  A door opens the interior dining space to the elevated outdoor living area and pool deck that includes a staircase to the home’s ground level.  The outdoor kitchen features a 36-inch Wolf gas grill, a SubZero undercounter refrigerator, Nature Kast cabinetry in a soft beige wood tone, and granite countertops.  A gas fireplace with a floor to ceiling decorative stone wall is positioned adjacent to the grilling station.  A sectional sofa provides seating in front of the fireplace.  A rectangular dining table features a soft greyish wood finish to match the dining chairs that include cream cushions.  Additional seating is provided in a covered area outside the great room and master bedroom that features a light-toned tongue and groove ceiling.  The pool deck is finished with tan porcelain tile with stone cupping and surrounded by a stainless-steel railing.  The back wall of the pool features three water spouts.  The pool includes a sun shelf and a spa.

In the study, double doors open to a covered deck on the front of the home.  The study features an angled tongue and groove ceiling with a white finish.  Furnishings include a hickory white desk with a steel base, a rustic console table, a sofa and side table, two rustic side chairs, and sailboat inspired art work.

A double-door entry opens to the master suite’s vestibule.  The bedroom is finished in light tones of beige and white that convey a coastal feeling.  The bed features a soft beige fully upholstered headboard, side rails, and footboard and is flanked by tan rustic nightstands.  A pair of rattan chairs and a circular table provide a comfortable sitting area that features sliders opening to the covered lanai.  The bedroom also includes a large walk-in closet.  A second walk-in closet and a morning bar with a grey base cabinet, a quartzite countertop, floating shelves, and a SubZero undercounter refrigerator is situated in a hallway leading to the master bath.  The bath features a Pietra Antica natural stone floor, an oval free-standing tub, and a dual walk-in shower with a framed inlay that includes a herringbone center, decorative accent tiles on the walls, three windows that provide natural light, and rain head and hand-held shower fixtures.  The bath also includes dual vanities with grey-toned cabinetry, quartzite counters with storage towers, rectangular undermount sinks, his and her water closets.

Two of the second living level’s three guest suites open to sundecks.  The bonus room opens to a covered deck and features a wet bar with floating shelves.  The bar includes a deep grey base cabinet, a quartzite counter, and an undercounter beverage center.  A dark wood furniture piece graces the wall on the opposite side of the room.  Other furnishings include a soft beige cloth sofa, heather grey side tables, a rectangular cocktail table, and a pair of side chairs.  The bonus room is pre-plumbed for a stacked washer and dryer.
