(Nov. 21, 2013) – Venetian Golf & River Club’s first Carriage home model is now open for viewing. The three-bedroom Monaco’s interior design by CJ Décor conveys a subtle tropical vibe through the use of leafy fabric prints, woven furniture, and touches of turquoise and sage.
The model is in Venetian’s Capello neighborhood and is located on the second floor, offering an aerial view of a fountained lake and surrounding nature preserves.
Venetian Golf & River Club is WCI Communities’ 1,039-acre master-planned community located along the Myakka River in Venice.
The Monaco, the larger of Venetian’s two Carriage home floor plans, offers 2,376 square feet of air-conditioned living space, a retreat, dining room, great room and breakfast café. It has a screened lanai, attached two-car garage and 2,990 total square feet.
The model home’s neutral-toned tile flooring and walls provide a backdrop for woven and dark-wood furniture, oversized leaf and floral motif fabrics, and pops of turquoise, sage and kiwi in accessories, art and accents. Windows and sliding glass doors in the great room, café and owner’s suite display the views and create a naturally lit interior.
The Monaco offers an elevator and staircase from its ground floor foyer.
The retreat, utility room and two guest rooms are located at the top of the staircase; a short hallway provides a glimpse of the great room beyond.
A wide, slightly arched opening showcases the retreat, designed by the Estero, Fla.-based CJ Décor as a home office with a small desk and woven chair and a sitting area with a sofa and oversized ottoman. Woven shadowbox frames, a ceiling fan with wide wood blades and the muted greens and oranges of the ottoman fabric and throw pillows introduce the Monaco’s tropical inspirations.
The laundry room has a washer and dryer, dark cabinetry and utility sink. The two guest rooms share a full bath that is also readily accessible to the retreat.
Turquoise is the primary accent in one of the bedrooms, appearing with kiwi and pops of yellow in the fabric used in the main draperies, a bed pillow and the valances decorating a trio of windows above the bed. The room mixes light and dark wood furniture, and solid turquoise appears in a bolster pillow and vase.
The second guestroom has twin beds with woven headboards, dark furniture, and gray and white duvets with a leaf pattern.
The Monaco’s open floor plan combines great room, kitchen, café and dining room in a sweep of space highlighting the views. A free-standing island serves as a visual divider and features a stainless steel dishwasher, double sink and cantilevered granite countertop at its raised breakfast bar. The kitchen has dark wood cabinetry with minimal paneling, a tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, including a stove, microwave and side-by-side refrigerator/freezer.
A thick area rug unites the great room’s sofa and two armchairs upholstered in a leaf-themed fabric with a muted turquoise, sage, burnt sienna and brown-gray. A turquoise and kiwi glass vase on the floating glass top of the cocktail table brings the brighter colors into the room. Shades of green are also introduced in the sage and white patterned throw pillows and a glass vase on the console below the wall-mounted flat-screen TV.
The two dining areas – the nook and dining room – offer a design contrast. Woven arm chairs anchor each end of the six-person glass-top dining room table, centered below a cylindrical suspended lighting fixture. The textural element is repeated in the base of the table and two oversized woven baskets displayed as statues. Four additional chairs have darker wood tones and a simple styling.
The nook, perched at a window and the lanai’s sliding glass doors, has four dark wood chairs and a round table below a metallic drum-shaped fixture.
Woven furnishings are also used on the model’s lanai, offering both seating and dining areas.
The owner’s suite is found off of the great room and continues the combination of dark woods paired with sage greens in bedding, artwork and accessories. The bedroom has a tray ceiling, a TV mounted above a dark wood dresser, and a sliding door to the lanai.
The owner’s suite also offers a walk-in closet, and its bathroom has a second closet for clothing, another for linen, off-white cabinetry with marble countertop and his and her sinks, dual mirrored medicine chests and a private water closet. The glass-enclosed shower is tiled and accented with a mosaic listello.
The Monaco is priced from $254,990, fully furnished, and is located in one of the first 20 Carriage home buildings WCI has released for sale in the Capello neighborhood, adjacent to the River Club and overlooking nature preserves, lakes and the 14th hole of Venetian’s 18-hole championship golf course designed by Chip Powell.
