The three-bedroom villa home features interior design by Michael Scott of Romanza Interior Design in Naples and overlooks a marsh preserve in Cortile, a neighborhood of 46 estate and villa homesites. The floor plan is one of more than a dozen offered by London Bay Homes in the Cortile neighborhood. The maintenance-free villas in Cortile – which include pool service, landscaping and lawn care covered through the homeowners association – are now more than 60 percent sold.
The model features Leonardo travertine flooring, neutral background finishes and a color palette of sand, charcoal, rust and green accented with blue and coral in select rooms. Its Spanish architecture incorporates a terra cotta tile barrel roof, rustic brick paver walkway and an intimate landscaped entry courtyard featuring an Italianate fountain.
The Girona offers 3,526 square feet of air-conditioned living space, a dining room, great room and study. It has three full baths and a powder room and the model is shown with a pool, spa, full summer kitchen with a commercial-grade grill and optional three-car garage.
Scott introduces the travertine flooring at the home’s entry and continues it throughout the model’s main living areas and onto the pool deck. The technique emphasizes the Girona’s open floor plan as does its connection to al fresco spaces through sliding glass doors in the family room and nook and a French door in the master suite.
The great room features an eclectic mix of transitional furniture pieces in warm walnut brown wood tones and contemporary upholstery with medium-toned fabrics and leathers. A natural sisal area rug anchors the main seating area and floral draperies throughout echo the room’s sand, rust, green and grey hues. Wood beams accent the ceiling.
The kitchen offers a Sub-Zero beverage center and refrigerator, a 48-inch stainless steel Wolf range and a walk-in pantry. The room has Carrara granite countertops with a unique leather finish, light-toned wood cabinetry, a handmade tile backsplash above the range and a freestanding island.
The floor and furniture plans provide numerous gathering areas, accommodating four at the kitchen’s island breakfast bar, eight to 10 people at the dining room table and another six at the nook’s round table. Additional gathering spaces include the outdoor living areas and even the study, designed with a small sectional for late-night TV viewing and a walnut writing/computer desk.
The classic king-size four-poster mission-style bed in the master bedroom references the Girona’s architectural influences and has an upholstered headboard with bronze accents. Clay colored walls and a hand-finished hickory wood plank floor add warmth to the room; blonde woven raffia bedside chests and a sisal area rug introduce elements of nature, also echoed in shades of sea green, blue and sand.
The wood floor continues into his and her custom walk-in closets.
The English Victoria + Albert volcanic stone and resin tub, set in a windowed alcove, is the focal point of the master bath, which also has travertine floors, light wood stained vanities with polished Sicilian mocha-hued limestone tops, transitional crystal and metal light fixtures and a travertine-clad walk-in shower.
The Girona’s two guest suites have private full baths; one has a walk-in closet. One offers a queen-sized bed and a transitional design with a teal, rust and sand color palette. The second room has two twin beds and shades of pale green, coral and sand.
The model has 5,072 total square feet and is priced at $2,095,000, fully furnished.
Home and homesite packages in Cortile are priced from $1.2 million. Villa and estate floor plans range from 2,800 to more than 6,000 square feet of living space.
