BOCA GRANDE —  Furnished models with interiors and furnishings by Theory Design are now open for viewing at Seagate Development Group’s Hill Tide Estates community, a 9.98-acre gated enclave on the southern tip of Boca Grande and the only site on Boca Grande that overlooks Boca Grande Pass.  Seagate’s furnished Captiva model features an interior by Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi.  Seagate was presented a 2019 Aurora Award for the Captiva in the Best Single-Family Detached Home Over 4,000 Square Feet category while Theory Design was named recipient of a 2019 Aurora Award for the Captiva’s interior in the Best Interior Design of a Home Priced over $2 million category.  Theory Design’s Lead Designer Adriene Ged selected the furnishings for BCB Homes’ Silver King model at Hill Tide Estates.  The interior design elements for the Silver King were created by Lisa Ficarra and her team at Ficarra Design Associates.

Priced at $5,995,000 with furnishings, the Captiva model includes 4,865 square feet under air and 11,184 square feet under roof.  The ground level features two garages and a lower foyer.  The first living level includes a great room, island kitchen, and dining area that open to the lanai, a study, and the master suite.  A staircase leads to the second living level that presents three guest ensuites and a bonus room with a wet bar.  In addition to a pool and spa, the outdoor living area includes a pool bath, outdoor kitchen, and an outdoor dining area.

Ruta Menaghlazi’s 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’ beachfront setting.  The Captiva’s lower foyer presents an open ceiling soaring to the top of the second living level.  A staircase leads to the great room where sliders open to the pool deck and outdoor area.  The great room ceiling features beam details with tongue and groove trim molding.  The feature wall showcases a media console and a television flanked by art selections.  Furnishings include a sectional sofa, a console in white and medium wood tones, a cocktail table, a wicker end table, and wicker side chairs with light fabric.

The kitchen’s island’s grey finish plays against a quartzite counter.  Barstools with tweed fabric and pendant lights provide a gathering place.  The perimeter cabinetry is finished in white and features upper cabinets with glass door fronts and windows at the back.  A gas Wolf range features a deep grey wooden hood.  Other appliances include a stainless-steel SubZero refrigerator/freezer, a Wolf microwave drawer, and two Asko dishwashers.

A dining table with rattan chairs seats eight in the dining area.  A door opens to the outdoor living area and pool deck.  The outdoor kitchen features a gas grill, undercounter refrigerator, Nature Kast cabinetry, and granite countertops.  A gas fireplace with a floor to ceiling stone wall is adjacent to the grill.  A sectional sofa provides seating at the fireplace.  A dining table features a greyish finish to match dining chairs with cream cushions.

In the study, double doors open to a covered deck.  The space features an angled tongue and groove ceiling with a white finish.  Furnishings include a white hickory desk, a console table, a sofa and side table, side chairs, and artwork.

The master bedroom is finished in beige and white.  The bed features a beige upholstered headboard with flanking tan nightstands.  A morning bar with a grey base cabinet, a quartzite countertop, and a SubZero undercounter refrigerator is in a hallway leading to the master bath that features stone flooring and vanities with grey-toned cabinetry and quartzite counters.

The second living level’s bonus room opens to a covered deck and features a wet bar.  A furniture piece graces the wall on the opposite side of the room.  Other furnishings include a beige sofa, grey side tables, a cocktail table, and side chairs.

Priced at $7.5 million, the 4,555 square feet under air two-story Silver King model showcases a massive great room, an island kitchen, family room, four bedrooms, four ensuite bathrooms and two half-bathrooms, and a covered outdoor living area with an outdoor kitchen and dining area, multiple conversations areas, and a large deck with a pool and spa.  The home is designed with the master bedroom on either the main living floor, or on the top floor to maximize Hill Tide Estates’ breathtaking views.

The Silver King is designed to provide a coastal farmhouse look with furnishings that convey a bit of a modern flair.  The home’s light wide-plank whitewashed oak flooring and neutral color palette contribute to a bright, light-filled ambiance.  A niche wall finished with  tongue-in-groove pecky cypress wood in the foyer establishes the design’s farmhouse style and use of organic elements.  Ged continues the theme with a modern furniture piece in the niche that features an asymmetrical wood base and a concrete top.  An organic driftwood sculpture is set atop the furniture piece.

Ged selected a low, modern, dark wood media console to place against the feature wall in the great room.  Other furnishings in the great room will include a substantial linen sectional sofa measuring 160 by 160-inches, two console tables placed behind the sofa, a 60-inch dark wood coffee table, two oversized wicker armchairs with light tan cushions, and a massive neutral-toned area rug.  The adjoining kitchen features an island base cabinet finished in dark wood with light white pickling and perimeter cabinets with a white finish and brushed nickel linear pulls.  Light tan solid surface counter surfaces will be found on both the island and the perimeter.  Ivory and black woven pattern chunky barstools offer seating at the island.  The dining area has a dark wood dining table that coordinates with the kitchen’s dark toned island base.  Ged has selected dining chairs with grey oak legs and white linen performance fabric.  A rectangular linear chandelier over the dining table is finished in brushed nickel.

The Silver King’s spacious family room provides a welcoming gathering place.  Furnishings include a cream-toned sleeper sofa, a pair of white accent chairs that feature a brown wood detail, two brown wood end tables, an upholstered ottoman with a brown wood finish and matching wooden trays, and a brown wood media cabinet.

The first-floor master suite features a beautiful ivory upholstered channel bed with dark brown legs.  A bench at the foot of the bed also presents a brown wood finish.  The modern streamlined dresser features an acrylic base.  A neutral-toned area rug anchors the furnishings that also include two white upholstered chairs in the sitting area.

Upstairs, he second master features a modern four-poster bed with a metal frame and a headboard finished in linen.  Other furnishings include a modern black finished dresser with brass hardware, a bench at the foot of the bed, and two upholstered chairs and a drink table in the sitting area.  Ged has included a cocktail table and two comfortable lounge chairs on the master suite’s covered balcony.

The huge outdoor living area on the Silver King’s first floor is finished in grey tones.  Furnishings include a 120-inch long dining table with seating for ten, a large sofa, four oversized lounge chairs, and a pair of coffee tables.
