Venice, FL (July 10, 2014) - WCI Communities has introduced its largest single-family floor plans at Venetian Golf & River Club, the company’s 1,039-acre master-planned community along the Myakka River in Venice.
The four Grand Estate home designs offer three and four bedrooms, three-car garages and 3,148 to 4,222 square feet of living space. The new single- and two-story plans are designed to appeal to buyers looking for a larger home and dedicated offices, formal dining rooms and even second-floor game rooms.
All offer gourmet kitchens with freestanding island/breakfast bars, granite countertops, raised panel wood cabinetry, and a full Whirlpool appliance package including a gas cooktop and double ovens. The floor plans also feature owner’s suites with dedicated sitting areas, walk-in closets, and bathrooms offering ceramic tiled glass-enclosed showers, separate garden tub, private water closets and vanities with his-and-her sinks.
Venetian’s new Grand Estates also include designer features such as 18-by-18-inch ceramic tile flooring in select rooms, multi-tiered coffered ceilings with crown molding, and decorative baseboards and case moldings.
Grand Estates start from $458,990.
The four-bedroom, three-bath Cambio features a large wraparound lanai, accessed from sliding glass doors in the living room and family room. The one-story floor plan has 3,148 square feet of interior living space and offers a casual dining area; a kitchen with a center island, breakfast bar and walk-in pantry; and two guest rooms with walk-in closets. The open floor plan concept is highlighted in the combined family room, kitchen and casual dining area and also in the living room, where columns and arched openings flow into the formal dining room and office on each side of the foyer.
The 4,222-square-foot Cambio II adds a second floor to the design. The 1,050-square-foot second floor provides an air-conditioned storage closet and a large game room with space for sitting and hobby areas. It has sliding glass doors leading to a balcony.
The Donato optimizes its one-story open floor plan, introducing the family room, adjoining kitchen and casual dining area from a foyer, which opens on each side to the formal dining room and office. A grand gallery separates foyer and family room and leads to the home’s private spaces – the owner’s suite and guest wing. The Donato offers four bedrooms, three full baths and 3,341 square feet. Its kitchen features an oversized breakfast bar and a staging area between dining room and kitchen suited for a butler’s pantry. The Donato has a side-loading three-car garage.
The two-story Donato II replaces a guest bedroom with a study alcove – ideal as a tech or media center – to accommodate the staircase. It has three bedrooms, and the second floor offers a fourth full bath, game room, sitting area and balcony. The floor plan has 4,169 square feet of living space.
WCI Communities has designed each Grand Estate with low-e impact-resistant windows and sliding glass doors for increased security and energy efficiency. Each floor plan features a concrete tile roof; brick paver driveway, walkway and lanai; professional landscaping; and irrigation system.
Homebuyers also have a choice of two architectural elevations.
Venetian Golf & River Club also offers Carriage homes, Grand Villas and Classic Series homes. New homes start from the low $200,000s.
Six fully furnished model homes are now open for viewing.
