Bonita Springs, FL (July 10, 2014) - The first model home is now open in Cielo, WCI Communities’ newest neighborhood of luxury penthouse-inspired condominium residences at The Colony Golf & Bay Club in Bonita Springs.
The three-bedroom, three- and one-half bath Residence 02 represents the first opportunity for homebuyers to step inside the Cielo lifestyle and explore the causal interior design featuring a contemporary twist created by Robb & Stucky International.
Metallic and mirrored furniture, light-reflecting wallpaper, and fire behind cracked-glass impart a dash of dazzle throughout the model’s 2,950 square feet. Designed to maximize the home’s entertaining potential and showcase views from its third-floor location, Residence 02 offers open gathering spaces that flow out to wraparound loggias and a “chat area” in the great room featuring four ultra-suede swivel chairs circling a large ottoman.
The model features hand-scraped wood floors and a neutral palette of linen, beige and taupe with pops of bright orange. The open floor plan enhances entertaining within the main living area, combining a breakfast nook, great room, dining area and the kitchen, plus more than 700 square feet of loggias.
The granite-embedded wallcovering on the great room’s main wall adds texture and a touch of sparkle, enhanced by the play of moving light from the room’s sleek LED fireplace with cracked-glass doors.
The kitchen’s freestanding island allows guests to interact with their hosts. The room’s contemporary look is enhanced by the contrast of dark wood cabinetry, lighter granite countertops, full granite backsplashes, and stainless steel appliances.
The model’s openness is balanced by private spaces for bedrooms and the library, shown in the model as a study with masculine furnishings. Sliding glass doors open to a private loggia.
The owner’s suite continues the contemporary styling with a mirror-accented headboard contrasted by rustic carved tables and a metallic-toned dresser. The suite offers a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a garden tub, glass-enclosed tile shower, and a vanity with his-and-her sinks.
Each of the model’s guest suites also has a walk-in closet and private full bathroom.
The Cielo 02 Residence is one of two home designs offered in Cielo. The second floor plan has 2,930 square feet.
Homes feature coffered ceilings in select rooms and both elevator and stairway access. Cielo homes are designed for a low-maintenance lifestyle providing residents with more time to enjoy the amenities at the Colony, including the award-winning Bay Club, a three-story private dining club overlooking Estero Bay.
Cielo is WCI Communities’ newest neighborhood in The Colony Golf & Bay Club, the 809-acre Bonita Springs community in Pelican Landing, just minutes from shopping, dining, entertainment and Gulf of Mexico beaches.
Cielo offers 96 homes in five-story buildings overlooking lakes, nature preserves and the seventh hole of The Colony’s Jerry Pate-designed golf course. The latest two buildings released for sale showcase new bay and golf views.
Homes start at $625,000.
Cielo is one of two new penthouse-style condominium neighborhoods in The Colony. WCI Communities also is offering new homes in Terzetto, featuring three-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath luxury penthouse homes with 2,100 and 2,624 square feet of living space in intimate three-story buildings. Two model homes are now open for viewing.
Homebuyers at Terzetto and Cielo can personalize their home through WCI’s Design Studio, located at the company’s nearby Bonita Springs headquarters. The studio provides a comprehensive selection of cabinetry, countertops, bath and kitchen fixtures and tile and flooring.
The 28,000-square-foot Colony Golf Club offers members 18 holes of championship golf, formal and casual dining options, a cocktail lounge, golf pro shop, men’s and women’s lounges and locker rooms and the Spa & Fitness Center.
