Venice, FL (May 22, 2014) – Four fully furnished model homes are now open for viewing in the Artisi model home park at Venetian Golf & River Club, the 1,039-acre master-planned community created by WCI Communities along the Myakka River in Venice.
The four-home park showcases two Grand Villa and two Classic series single-family floor plans.
Kay Green Design created the interior design for the San Remo, a three-bedroom Grand Villa, and two Classic Series single-family homes: the three-bedroom, three-bath Boretto and the Agostino, offering three bedrooms, three full baths and a powder room.
The Florencia Grand Villa features interior design by Builders Design and is shown with the option of converting the den to a third bedroom. Design highlights include rustic San Tropez wood and slate-like gray tile flooring, shimmering gold ceilings, and extensive millwork and picture-frame molding details on walls and ceilings. The model’s gray palette is interjected with white and coral, the latter showcased in the dining room and as an accent wall in a guest room.
The Florencia’s kitchen features dark kona-stained cabinetry, grayish-white quartz countertops, a mosaic chicklet backsplash and an extended freestanding island. It flows into the breakfast nook and great room, emphasizing the open floor plan of the 2,039-square-foot home. The home offers 2,868 total square feet, including a two-car garage and lanai.
The San Remo offers 2,250 square feet of living space, and its flex room is shown by Kay Green Design as an office with a partner’s desk. The model’s design blends traditional maple- and linen-toned furniture with eclectic finds for a collected look. The San Remo has an olive-branch wood flooring installed on the angle in main rooms, and a palette of raspberry and lime-green accents against ivory, white and tan textural backgrounds.
The floor plan of the San Remo Grand Villa combines great room, dining area and kitchen, which has chiffon-finished cabinetry, bamboo quartz countertops, and a tile backsplash. The main great room wall boasts sage green framed with white moldings. The model has a pool and 3,034 total square feet, including a two-car garage and lanai.
The Boretto, one of Artisi’s two Classic series homes, also features wood flooring, painted wood accent walls, and picture-frame molding details selected by Kay Green Design. The model boasts rich jade tones in the dining room’s coffered ceiling and has a painted accent wall in the den, contrasted with white millwork and floating wall-mounted shelves.
Jade, green and blue-green play off warm beige and brown backdrops with tangerine providing pops of color and complementing rustic cherry wood tones and coastal white furniture. The floor plan’s golf cart garage is shown as a casita, providing a fourth bedroom, fourth bath and separate entrance from the covered entry and 2,925 square feet of living space.
Inside the Classic Series Agostino, the Kay Green team contrasts dark wood tones in kitchen cabinetry and furniture with mirrored surfaces, ivory-hued porcelain tile flooring, and a predominant palette of gray accented with white and touches of navy blue, aqua and fresh yellow. Its den features a hand-scraped hickory wood floor and gray-painted wood walls. Several furniture pieces throughout the model’s 2,725 square feet feature script- and postage-inscribed upholstery.
The Agostino offers three bedrooms and 4,009 total square feet, including a two-car garage and separate golf cart garage. The model has a pool and raised spa, and the floor plan’s cabana storage is shown as a full pool bath. The open floor plan combines great room, kitchen and dining area with two sets of sliding glass doors opening to the lanai.
Venetian offers 10 Carriage, Grand Villa and Classic floor plans. New homes start from the low $200,000s.
WCI Communities has created Venetian Golf & River Club with an array of amenities, including an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Chip Powell and a 20,000-square-foot Golf Club, where members can enjoy fine and casual dining and a full calendar of events.
