Theory Design is finalizing the interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Sonoma model in Isola Bella at Talis Park. It is currently reserved, under construction and slated for completion in Fall 2022. Theory Design is also creating the interior for Seagate’s furnished Revana and Monterey II models – both sold and under construction – and Seagate’s furnished Olema model – which is reserved and breaking ground soon. R.G. Designs is featuring architectural design for all four model homes.

The two-story Sonoma offers over 4,000 square feet of living space – four bedrooms, four-and-two-half baths, and a three-car garage. The first story accommodates a great room with a wet bar and a walk-in wine room, a large island kitchen, and a dining area that all lead to an outdoor living area. A powder bath and a VIP guest suite complete the lower level. The second living level includes a master suite that segues into a master bath, along with two guest suites, a loft with a morning bar, and a flex space.

A California coastal, modern design concept starts at the front exterior with warm and cool contrasts. Examples include a graphite gray privacy gate, shutters and metal ledges as well as white/charcoal pavers. The house will present a light gray exterior with a medium gray trim, dark gray gutters and garage door, black windows and an iron front door. The roof will be gray with white streaks. A front courtyard will complete the front exterior space with large potted plants and a stone wall of accent tile cladding.

Wide plank white oak flooring starts just beyond the entry door. The homeowners will experience a staircase in the foyer that debuts oak treads with black stained wood box cap posts and a stainless cable rail as well as stairway sconces. The main living ceilings will combine lighted reverse soffit and tray with wood slats. This serves as the inspiration for the media wall in the great room – a white oak wood slat wall detail. It is complemented by couture European oak flooring – which continues throughout the main living areas – and a wet bar with midnight-colored cabinets and marble-style porcelain countertops. In the kitchen, one will find the same dark cabinets and porcelain countertops, but they will be contrasted with glass uppers showing white accent interiors. The wine room offers porcelain floor and tile on two walls, with the other two made of glass. The powder bath presents grass cloth wallcovering, midnight-colored cabinets below a marble countertop and porcelain flooring – just as in the VIP bath. The pantry, with a second refrigerator, and the mud room include quartz countertops, as seen in the first- and second-floor laundry rooms. The outdoor living area is equipped with graphite gray aluminum horizontal railings, waterwall cladding and porcelain decking as well as a custom pool, a raised spa and a sun shelf with stairs. The lanai will contain a cypress-stained tongue-in-groove ceiling, a large ceiling fan and an outdoor fireplace clad in stone. The outdoor kitchen will include granite countertops atop weathered graphite cabinets. A pool bath will be adjacent to this space.

On the second living level, the master bath will present marble throughout, along with a grass cloth wallcovering. A soaking tub and a walk-in shower will complete this space. The loft will debut lantern-like wall sconces and marble countertops as well as midnight-colored cabinets at the morning bar. Overall, the design throughout the Sonoma is clean, bright, organic and hygge – that feeling one gets when comfort meets well-being and contentment.

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. Defined as livable luxury, it presents a modern interior with coastal influence as well as organic and industrial accents. Examples are earthy colors with neutral backgrounds and black accents for contrast, reverse soffit ceilings with LED cove lighting, natural wire-brushed white oak flooring, and Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. Additional features include quartz kitchen countertops and backsplash, a natural quartzite island, and bleached oak and ebony cabinetry. The outdoor living space presents an outdoor fireplace, water features, and kitchen and dining areas that maximize the views of the scenic lake and dramatic bridge.

The front exterior of the Monterey II offers a black and gray color scheme, while the rear exterior debuts a cedar-stained dark walnut ceiling as well as aluminum horizontal railings. It all starts with an aluminum gate that opens to an entry courtyard. This space is equipped with art turf/plantings between steppers, a concrete bench and a water feature against accent tile cladding. Once inside, the foyer will accommodate foyer and stairway chandeliers, stairway sconces and an ebony, natural iron bench. This segues to a walk-in wine room and a sitting room with a piano, wall art and wall sconces. The great room will be equipped with a custom-designed wood trim feature wall. Homeowners will also enjoy a gunmetal/bluestone coffee table, a French contemporary sideboard in brushed black oak and satin bronze, a wool area rug, and black and white ottomans. The kitchen and dining area is adjacent to the great room. It features barstool seating, LED lighting, low cabinets and high windows for contrast as well as views of the outdoor living area. This space is filled with a 65-inch ceiling fan, granite countertops, a 46-inch concrete firepit, a grill and an under-counter refrigerator, along with a custom pool and spa. The furniture here exhibits a black and white scheme with white cushions, a dark aluminum side table, an iron chaise and white gloss glaze garden stools. Meanwhile, the powder bath offers castle-cream-colored tile, porcelain countertops and midnight-colored cabinets. The VIP bedroom has a 52-inch fan in coal – just as in the second-story guest bedrooms – and an area rug made of Indian wood pile. The VIP bath – which completes the first floor – features quartz countertops, just as in one of two guest baths upstairs.

The second living level is also met with midnight-colored cabinets at the morning bar. The mud room continues the brushed oak flooring, which is highlighted by graphite cabinets and granite countertops. The second guest bath presents marble countertops and charcoal-colored cabinets. The master bedroom will debut armchairs with grey fabric and a black frame, two black chests, a pale-black-colored dresser, and a grey and white area rug, and a shaded chandelier. In the master bath, one will find marble flooring and countertops, graphite-stained cabinets, which clad an elongated tub ledge that stretches from behind the tub all the way into the walk-in shower. Meanwhile, the loft will function as an office that features a desk and storage console with décor and art collected by the homeowners. A flex/bonus room introduces a three-door sideboard in ebony walnut, a mirror in dark walnut, two leather library chairs and a midcentury-modern-inspired chandelier. A second laundry room and a second powder bath complete this story of the home.
