30 Aug Seagate Completes Construction of Observation Pier at Hill Tide Estates
Seagate Development Group announced it has completed construction of an observation pier at Hill Tide Estates, a 9.98-acre gated enclave on the southern tip of Boca Grande being developed by Seagate. An amenity reserved for Hill Tide Estates residents only, the observation pier offers a one of a kind, first-hand experience of Boca Grande Pass that is unlike any other. Boca Grande Pass is situated at the mouth of Charlotte Harbor between the southern tip of Gasparilla Island and the northern tip of Cayo Costa. The pass is a destination in a tarpon migration pattern that spans roughly 100 miles of Florida coastline and is acknowledged by fishing enthusiasts as the Holy Grail of tarpon fishing. With an average depth of 80-feet, Boca Grande Pass is the deepest natural pass in the State of Florida and serves as the gateway from the Gulf of Mexico to Charlotte Harbor. During peak tarpon fishing season, Boca Grande attracts hordes of tarpon that congregate in the pass to feed before moving offshore to spawn.
Seagate also announced that construction of its furnished Bal Harbour model at Hill Tide Estates is progressing as planned. Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi is creating the interior design for the Bal Harbour model. The Bal Harbour is one of three models available for purchase at Hill Tide Estates. Seagate’s completed Captiva model is open for viewing and also features an interior design by Ruta Menaghlazi. 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. Seagate was presented an Aurora Award for the Captiva in the Best Single-Family Detached Home Over 4,000 Square Feet category. In addition to the Bal Harbour and the Captiva, BCB Homes’ Beacon model is in development.
Priced at $6,900,000 furnished and designed by RG Designs, the three-level Bal Harbour floor plan includes 5,198 square feet under air on the two living levels. The plan’s ground level entry and a front porch are flanked by two oversized garages. In addition to the garage areas, the ground level includes massive storage spaces that are perfect for storing beach, fishing, and boating gear. A ground level foyer provides access to an elevator and a staircase that lead to the living levels. The first living level will showcase a spacious great room, an island kitchen, dining area, study, and a second master suite. The entire living area, including the study and second master suite, open to a deck with a pool and spa, and to an outdoor living area with conversation and dining areas, an outdoor kitchen, and a pool bath. The second living level features a bonus room with a wet bar, the master suite, and two VIP guest suites. The bonus room, master suite, and one of the VIP guest suites open to a comfortably sized deck that will offer an ideal place to enjoy sunsets over the Gulf. The deck overlooks the pool and outdoor living area.
Ruta’s interior design for the Bal Harbour model will convey a combination of coastal, rustic, and modern styles. The “at the beach” motif will be established by the home’s white windows and trim, a striking standing seam metal roof, and Hardy-Board siding. Inside, white linen and soft grey wall tones will be contrasted by grey, navy blue, and pear green accents. The color palette will play against brushed light oak hardwood flooring. The staircase will feature horizontal iron railings, white risers, and treads that match the light oak hardwood flooring. Painted or stained ship-lap wainscoting and ceiling details will be presented in select areas of the home. The cabinetry in the kitchen and baths will be white wood with relaxed weathered finishes that will be featured in combination with leathered counter surfaces. The first living level’s outdoor living area will provide a relaxing retreat, complete with an infinity edge pool with a spa and sun shelves.
The second living level will continue the design’s emphasis on creating a relaxed ambiance and will feature a wet bar in the spacious bonus room as well as a morning bar. The master suite will include two large walk-in closets and a bath with separate vanities, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.
Priced at $5,995,000 with furnishings, Seagate’s completed 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 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’s design for the Captiva’s interior conveys a coastal feeling with beige walls, blue and turquoise accents, and light oak flooring.
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 living area. The great room ceiling features beam details with tongue and groove trim. 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 walk-in pantry features a SubZero icemaker, Whirlpool refrigerator, and a washer and dryer.
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. The pool deck is finished with tan porcelain tile.
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 grey-toned cabinetry with quartzite counters.
