Fort Myers, FL (Jan. 21, 2014) – WCI Communities has introduced its largest single-family floor plan at Pelican Preserve, the company’s 55 and better lifestyle community in Fort Myers.

The three-bedroom Donatello, one of four Classic Series single-family homes now available at Pelican Preserve, offers 2,986 square feet, a large formal dining room, den and four full bathrooms. Its great room floor plan emphasizes openness between the home’s main indoor and alfresco gathering areas, including the kitchen, breakfast nook and covered lanai.

“We added an even larger floor plan at Pelican because so many of our homebuyers enjoy having family and friends come to visit,” said Scott Wolf, regional director of sales for WCI Communities. “The home design provides privacy for the homeowners as well as their guests, with plenty of full bathrooms and numerous seating areas available.”
Pocketing sliding glass doors open the great room to the lanai; the breakfast nook also includes sliding glass doors to the outdoor space.

Columns in the dining room create wide openings overlooking the great room.

The gourmet kitchen offers a free-standing island/breakfast bar with dishwasher and divided sink and a corner walk-in pantry.

The Donatello has tray ceilings in select rooms, tile and carpet flooring, and provides several options that allow buyers to extend the lanai, add French doors from the master bedroom to outdoor space, convert the den into a fourth bedroom, and opt for lower kitchen counter heights.

A split floor plan places the owner’s suite and guest rooms in separate wings.

The owner’s retreat has his-and-her walk-in closets and a large bathroom offering double vanities, a water closet, separate tub and shower.

The two guest rooms are offered en suite with private full baths and walk-in closets.

The Donatello, available in the newly released Solaro neighborhood, has 3,921 total square feet, including a two-car garage, covered entry and lanai. It is priced from $403,990.

The Solaro neighborhood offers 56 homesites along the second hole of the Heron and the eighth hole of the Ibis golf courses, both designed by Chip Powell. Additional Classic Series floor plans in WCI’s Solaro neighborhood at Pelican Preserve offer three bedrooms, two to four baths and 2,434 to 2,986 square feet of living space. Pelican Preserve’s Classic Series homes are priced from $322,990.

Plaza del Sol, the 70,000-square-foot Town Center, is the centerpiece of the Pelican Preserve lifestyle and offers nearly every imaginable activity, from indoor fitness and swimming to numerous arts and crafts studios and casually elegant dining at Destinations restaurant. Outdoor amenities include a resort-style pool, tennis, softball and lawn bowling.

Golf members at Pelican Preserve enjoy 27 holes of Powell-designed championship golf, plus the 24,500-square-foot Golf Club, offering members fine and casual dining, a full calendar of events and a fitness center with wellness, fitness and spa treatment rooms.
