In Mediterra, Naples’ premier golf and beach club community, Romanza Interior Design’s Michael Scott has created a sophisticated interpretation of traditional, classic design in the Palmero single-family model.
Located at 16723 Lucarno Way, the Palmero will feature nearly 4,000 square feet of air-conditioned living space and is scheduled for completion later this month.
Scott’s selection of plank wire-brushed oak floors and distressed wood box beams, both finished in a rich medium brown, unifies the Palmero’s open floor plan that flows from formal dining room and great room, to the kitchen and nook.
An elegant palette of cream, sand, blue and brown sets the stage for wood furniture pieces in a mix of warm brown finishes, including an oak plank-top dining table, and rustic walnut media and cocktail tables in the great room.
“Fabrics in a mix of creams and blue punctuate our design, along with additional blue accents in the artwork, accessories and lamps,” said Scott.
In the gourmet-inspired kitchen, perimeter cabinets in a painted, moderate white finish and a contrasting maple island with an espresso finish are complemented by white Statuario quartzite countertops. The island features a white, single-bowl, apron-front sink with a stainless steel high arch pulldown spray faucet.
“The range wall is really the ‘wow’ of this kitchen,” said Scott. A stainless-steel Wolf 48-inch range with six burners, an infrared griddle and dual convection ovens are set along a backsplash of Calacatta gold marble mosaic in a running bond pattern. Appliances also include a Sub-Zero French door refrigerator with freezer drawer below, a dishwasher paneled to match the cabinets and a stainless-steel Wolf drop-down microwave oven. There is also a separate pantry for storage and a walk-through butler’s bar with additional cabinet and counter space, as well as an under-counter Sub-Zero wine cooler.
The oak flooring continues into the Palmero’s master suite, where it is softened by an ivory hand-loomed wool area rug. A pair of eye-catching blue and white chests flank a king-size bed upholstered in creamy fabric. Nearby, a large vintage oak cabinet includes storage drawers and glass doors with display shelves. The coffered-ceiling suite also offers an intimate sitting area and dual walk-in closets. The bath features an open glass-encased shower with dual showerheads with digital controls and an inset mosaic floor in Carrara marble. An elegant, free-standing soaking tub with a floor–mount filler in polished chrome is positioned before the shower.
Ample counter space includes double sinks and a sit-down vanity. Maple bath cabinetry with a driftwood finish is topped with white quartzite that complements Statuary white polished marble floors and shower walls. A private courtyard, accessible through the bathroom, features an outdoor shower and fountain.
The study’s desk and bookcase feature a washed oak finish balanced by a soft navy leather lounge chair and blue accent fabrics. In the adjacent powder bath, walls are finished in a glossy blue Venetian plaster. The floor has a Baroque mosaic polished Carrara marble inset, bordered by wide plank oak. An aged coffee stained vanity is topped with Italian Carrara marble.
A gallery hall leads to the Palmero’s two guest suites with private baths and the laundry room.
Sliding glass doors in the great room and kitchen cafe lead to an expansive covered outdoor living area that includes an outdoor kitchen, dining area and living room, along with a large pool deck featuring Philadelphia travertine tumbled pavers in a basket weave pattern. The outdoor kitchen includes a built-in stainless-steel grill, under counter refrigerator and stainless-steel sink with walnut-finished louver cabinets.
Featuring a sun shelf and raised spa, the pool’s surround and spillway is tiled in a cobalt blue mosaic. Cobalt is continued in the waterline tile, while a copper fire bowl in an oil-rubbed bronze finish, positioned on a raised pedestal, is a focal point behind the spa. The pool deck’s fire table feature is surrounded by three loveseats for additional destination seating.
The Palmero encompasses 5,601 total square feet, including the outdoor living space, a covered front
porch, a two-car garage and a detached one-car garage. The model is priced at $2,690,000, furnished.
