Theory Design, Southwest Florida’s fastest growing high-end interior design company, is working hand-in-hand with leading full-service developer Seagate Development Group on the interior design of a 60,000-square-foot estate at Quail West Golf & Country Club.
The Master Designer of this newly sold property is Ruta Menaghlazi, Theory Design’s Visionary Head and Vice President of Design. She works closely with interior designer Celeste Cornejo.
This soft, modern private residence will feature natural finishes and timeless details, including four bedrooms plus a study, four full and two semi-baths, and a three-and-a-half car shared garage. The property will also reflect the luxury and prestige of the community while emphasizing its unique qualities through a zen-like atmosphere, ample entertaining areas and clean lines that complement its open floor plan.
Peace and tranquility will embody modernity from the start – a geometrically paved driveway, a bridge walkway flanked by water features, and modern columns at the entrance way. These elegant touches result in a white facade with a light sand finish, black-framed windows, black garage doors, a black pivot-style front door, and wall-mounted aluminum LED lanterns—all beneath a dark gray flat-tile roof.
Inside, the foyer begins with European white oak floors and leads directly into the living room with intimate and comfortable seating and a tiered coved ceiling with LED lighting. This inviting space is sandwiched between the study on one side and the family room on the other. The latter – along with the dining area, kitchen and master suite – will showcase an inverted soffit ceiling with LED cove lighting that mimics the accent lighting on the louvered media wall, along with a full view of the much-anticipated outdoor living area. The dining area adjacent to the family room will showcase a wet bar with a brass-colored hanging shelf, while the adjacent chef’s kitchen features a spacious, weathered ash-colored island and white oak wraparound cabinetry, slatted wood hood, and top-of-the-line appliances including two dishwashers 48 inch gas range and a wall oven with microwave drawer. To complement these exquisite entertaining features, a wine display will stand just off the kitchen, showcasing a textured stone tile wall behind shelves and recessed accent lighting. Near the kitchen, a pantry/utility combination provides space for a second refrigerator.
The owners wing is just outside the study and just off the car and a half garage. It begins with two walk-in closets that lead to a luxurious master bath with black cabinets, crystalline marble flooring, dual vanities, a deep soaking tub and a large, glass-enclosed walk-in shower. This modern and natural oasis will channel the outdoor space overlooking a private garden with stepped paving stones with grass, a textured stone water wall, Theory Design signature Buddha sculpture and vine walls, creating both a lush landscape and a space in nirvana- capture style . Back inside, a morning bar will welcome homeowners into the master suite – complete with a seating area to enjoy joyful stillness.
This property is completed with the large outdoor entertaining living area. The outdoor kitchen offers an expansive island, a built-in gas grill with a hood clad in textured tile and granite countertops, and an adjacent dining area for eight. Meanwhile, the covered porch with a 65-inch ceiling fan offers cozy seating by the see-through fireplace with textured tile trim — beneath a stained tongue-and-groove ceiling and directly in front of a custom-designed pool and spa with access to a pool bath. Furnishings include a U-shaped sectional and table, a rectangular coffee table, an aluminum ottoman, armless armchairs and lounge chairs.
“Celeste and I carefully considered every design detail to make the entire home feel homelike yet modern. Natural finishes and materials paired with timeless details like slatted wood walls and textured stone and tiles will elevate the design aesthetic,” said Menaghlazi.
This property is under construction and is scheduled for completion in 2023. The exquisite interior design will be completed shortly thereafter.
