Theory Design is finalizing the interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Olema model in the Isola Bella neighborhood at Talis Park. The Olema is reserved and breaking ground soon, while Seagate’s furnished Monterey II and Revana models – also with interiors by Theory Design – are sold and under construction. Additionally, Theory Design is creating the interior for Seagate’s Sonoma model – which is reserved and under construction. R.G. Designs is featuring architectural design in all four model homes.

The two-story Olema offers over 4,400 square feet of living space – including four bedrooms, four-and-two-half baths, two one-car garages and ample space for a golf cart. An urban retreat concept starts at the exterior with pavers in white/charcoal, a façade in gray with white accents, a roof in charcoal, doors and windows in black, and contemporary exterior wood-like cladding. The outdoor living area presents a tongue-in-groove ceiling, a textured concrete fireplace, and a grey and black color scheme.

A modern, warm and livable design is just beyond the entry courtyard – lined with weathered cast stone tapered planters. Walnut flooring with a wire-brushed texture is apparent in the main living areas, complementing Calcutta honed flooring in the master bath, Calcutta and Dolomite artisan stone tile in the powder bath, linen porcelain tile in a guest bath, fossil stone on the outdoor living sundeck and stamped-concrete-style tile in the pool bath. Other distinctions range from walnut ceiling beams, walnut and ebony kitchen and bar cabinets to a black metal staircase railing with a vertical wood slat detail that runs up the ceiling. Homeowners will enjoy slab-style cabinets, a full-height marble backsplash, a double waterfall island and a tongue-in-groove ceiling in the kitchen as well as a wet bar in the dining area, a bench/drop station in the mud room and ceiling beams in the study. The great room will debut a stepped tray ceiling outlined by a dark wood perimeter detail. This geometric detail mimics the stained molding feature on the media wall. The master suite will accommodate a full-height upholstered headboard wall detail and a morning bar, while the master bath will offer a vessel-style sink, a soaking tub, and a walk-in shower with Calcutta marble in a herringbone pattern as well as a bath niche. Meanwhile, the powder bath will feature a floating vanity with hanging pendants, and one of the guest baths will present an oversized vanity with an open-shelf detail.

Appliances in the Olema include Sub-Zero, Asko, CVR and Wolf in the island kitchen as well as U-Line at the wet bar and the morning bar and Alfresco and U-Line in the outdoor living area.

The open-concept floor plan streamlines the room-to-room flow from the foyer to the great room to the kitchen and dining area and, finally, to the outdoor living area. Upstairs, the master bedroom will open to the second level of the outdoor living area, while the loft will connect adjacent spaces, such as a flex area/study and guest bedrooms and baths.

The two-story Sonoma offers over 4,000 square feet of living space. That accommodates four bedrooms, four-and-two-half baths, and a three-car garage, along with a casual California coastal concept. This is apparent in the home’s overall tone of spatial awareness and comfort, low-profile furniture, and layers of organic, natural cotton and textured fabrics.

The Sonoma model will feature an outdoor living area with gathering, lounging and waterfront views, along with a lower-area firepit. The first floor will include a great room with a vertical wood slat detail that runs up the media wall and across the ceiling. It is hand-stained and hand-cut to match the white oak floors throughout the home. The cantilever island kitchen offers expansive seating, white oak and black cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, black plumbing and black windows that are carried into other areas of the home. A powder bath, a VIP guest suite and a glass wall wine room complete the lower level of the Sonoma.

A staircase to the second floor is consistent with the linear features throughout the model. The master suite overlooks the water with a sitting area that opens to a sundeck. The marble clad master bath displays separate vanities, a soaking tub and a walk-in shower. Two additional guest suites, a loft with a morning bar and a flex space further reflect the clean and bright design of the Sonoma.

The Monterey II model offers over 4,500 square feet of living space over four bedrooms, four-and-three-half baths, and a three-car garage. It all starts with an entry courtyard, complete with a water feature and finishes that reflect the white/charcoal pavers in the driveway.

Inside, a coastal, modern interior design and intentional industrial elements are presented in an open-concept floor plan that starts at the entry foyer and makes its way into the great room. It includes a custom-designed wood trim feature wall and accompanying large wall with a similar presentation.

The great room is adjacent to a dining area for 10 people. It includes full access to a wet bar with cabinetry that mimics the European white oak wood flooring throughout the first floor. Both rooms lead to an outdoor living area, complete with a fireplace and a pool bath – which are below a dark-walnut-tone-stained cedar tongue-in-groove ceiling. The island kitchen debuts barstool seating, LED lighting, low cabinets and high windows for contrast. A powder bath completes the first living level.

The second floor accommodates a master suite with dual walk-in closets, an adjoining flex space, and a gorgeous view of a covered terrace and a pool/sundeck with black aluminum horizontal railings. The master bath features two water closets, two vanities, a freestanding tub and a walk-in shower – all of which complement two guest suites, a second powder bath and a morning bar.

The two-story Revana model offers over 5,500 square feet of living space – four bedrooms, four-and-three-half baths, and a two-car garage. With a California coastal, modern interior design, it opens to a two-story entry and grand foyers that lead to a wine room. The island kitchen, great room and dining area open to the outdoor living area as well as a dining area, an island kitchen, a pool bath, and a custom pool and spa. A powder bath and VIP master suite top off the first floor of the Revana.

Upstairs, a flex space in the rear of the home includes a wet bar and a powder bath as well as continues to the second half of the outdoor living area. The outdoor living area also features a sundeck off the master suite, which includes private water closets, dual vanities, a freestanding tub and a walk-in shower.

With a tone of livable luxury throughout the home, the Revana will encompass a neutral color palette via walnut wide plank flooring, textural furnishings and design accessories. A water feature at the pool brings this theme of luxury together.
