15 Feb Seagate breaks ground on Genova model at Esplanade Lake Club
FORT MYERS — Seagate Development Group announced it has broken ground on its furnished Genova model at Esplanade Lake Club, a new 778-acre resort lifestyle community being developed by Taylor Morrison. The gated community is positioned on a 352-acre lake. Taylor Morrison has selected Seagate as the exclusive custom homebuilder at Esplanade Lake Club. Custom homes by Seagate will be built on 11 of the community’s most exclusive lakefront home sites. Seagate’s Monaco model is also under construction and a third model is in development. Seagate’s three and four-bedroom Esplanade Lake Club floor plan choices range from 3,299 to 4,123 square feet under air.
The Genova floor plan includes 3,892 square feet under air and an outdoor living area measuring 1,058 square feet. The open-concept plan features a living area that includes a grand room, an island kitchen, and a dining area. The plan’s study can be tasked as a formal dining room. Both the grand room and the dining area have pocketing sliders that open to an outdoor living area that includes a two-sided fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, and conversation and dining areas. The floor plan also features four bedrooms, four and a half baths, a pool bath, and a three-car garage. The master bedroom’s sitting area also opens to the outdoors. The master suite includes walk-in closets and a bath with dual vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower. The Genova model will showcase an interior design by Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi and Lead Designer Adriene Ged.
Ruta and Adriene’s preliminary design for the Genova model creates a modern interior that reflects a world travel style with art, fabrics, rugs, and accessories that reflect global influences. Earthy colors with neutral backgrounds and textured wallcovering accents will play against warm natural oak flooring. An oversized linear media treatment on the great room’s feature wall will include ebony-toned media cabinets and built-in shelving with a contrasting wall texture.
The gourmet island kitchen will feature a Bosch appliance package with a gas cooktop and double ovens. The island base cabinet and perimeter cabinetry will showcase modern slab doors in warm wood tones that will be paired with light quartzite counter surfaces with a honed finish. As planned, a stone slab backsplash will complete the look.
Multiple windows will create a light filled ambiance in the master bedroom while providing exquisite lake views. Modern furnishings with lighter fabrics will include tribal and ethnic patterns. The modern look will carry into the master bath where warm-toned wood cabinets will combine with marble countertops and stone-like tile flooring and shower walls to create a welcoming ambiance. The master bath will also feature a free-standing tub and an oversized shower with rain-head and hand-held fixtures and a contemporary linear drain.
As planned, Ruta and Adriene’s design for the outdoor living area will include a modern stone tile linear fireplace, stone-like tile flooring, and an outdoor kitchen with a 36-inch gas grill and vent hood. The outdoor space will also feature an undercounter refrigerator, an island bar with counter stool seating, and conversation and dining areas.
Ruta and Adriene are also designing the interior for Seagate’s furnished Monaco that is under construction. The Monaco model’s 3,299 square feet under air open-concept floor plan features an entry sequence that includes a covered front porch. A spacious great room with beamed ceiling details and a wet bar will open to a covered lanai and an outdoor living area with an outdoor kitchen, a pool bath, and a deck with a custom pool and spa. The lanai and outdoor living area will overlook Esplanade Lake Club’s stunning lake views. Outdoor Productions is designing the model’s landscaping, outdoor living area, pool and spa. The master suite will feature a bedroom with a sitting area that opens to the outdoors, walk-in closets, and a morning bar. The master bath includes dual vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower. Two VIP guest suites will feature private baths. The Monaco plan also features an owner’s study, a dining room that opens to the outdoor living area, an island kitchen with counter-height seating at the island and a walk-in pantry, an audio/visual control center, and a three-car garage.
Ruta and Adriene have created a coastal beach style interior with a casually elegant feeling for the Monaco model. Wall tones in various shades of white will be accented by soft tans and warm greys. The palette will play against ten-inch wide plank white oak hardwood flooring. Intriguing ceiling details will be found throughout the home, including reverse soffit details with cove lighting in the great room and study. The master bedroom will feature a beamed ceiling detail. The great room’s wine bar will showcase an attractive base cabinet with a satin matte black finish, a quartzite counter surface, pendant lighting, and floating shelves against a decorative wallpaper.
Esplanade Lake Club is located just east of I-75 in Fort Myers and provides easy access to the Southwest Florida International Airport, Southwest Florida’s beaches, golf courses, cultural activities, upscale shopping and dining entertainment, schools, medical facilities, and employment corridors. As planned, on-site amenities will include a resort-style pool, the outdoor Bahama Bar and Grille restaurant, the full-service Koquina Sand Spa that will feature a Lakeside Spa Cabana, sports courts featuring tennis, pickleball, and bocce ball, a waterfront walking trail, a kayak launch, and a learning space for residents to utilize for meetings, social activities, gaming, and more.
In addition to Esplanade Lake Club, Seagate is building custom end-user residences at Quail West, Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club in Estero, Windward Isle in North Naples, Talis Park in North Naples, and at Hill Tide Estates at Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Remodeling projects are underway in Estuary at Grey Oaks and Pelican Bay, Quail West, the Shadow Wood community, in Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, and on Boca Grande. The projects include extensive interior renovations, remodeling of master baths and kitchens, and exterior projects ranging from transforming outdoor living areas to new dock construction. The end-user custom home construction and remodeling activity are being undertaken as Seagate is continuing to develop new furnished models at Windward Isle, Hill Tide Estates, Miromar Lakes, Quail West, and at the new Isola Bella neighborhood at Talis Park.
Seagate’s furnished Captiva model at Hill Tide Estates is open for viewing and purchase. Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi created the interior for the Captiva model at Hill Tide Estates and Outside Productions designed the landscaping, outdoor living area, pool, and spa. The Captiva includes 4,865 square feet under air and 11,184 square feet under roof. Hill Tide Estates is a 9.98-acre gated enclave on the southern tip of Boca Grande being developed by Seagate and the only site on Boca Grande overlooking Boca Grande Pass. Seagate was presented the 2019 Aurora Award for the Captiva model in the Best Single-Family Detached Home Over 4,000 Square Feet category and Theory Design was named recipient of the Aurora Award in the Best Interior Design of a Home Priced over $2 million category.
