London Bay Homes invites homebuyers to explore the Carmela, the newest Mediterra lake-view luxury estate model that boasts the award-winning builder’s signature design-led approach and fresh architectural style, along with a choice location within Naples’ premier golf and beach club community.
Situated in Caminetto, Mediterra’s newest, exclusive neighborhood that is within a short walk of the picturesque Parterre Garden – a sanctuary of formal gardens, sitting areas, and a reflecting pond with waterspouts – the Carmela capitalizes on its lake and nature preserve views with a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living spaces.
Michael Scott, senior design director with award-winning Romanza Interior Design, has created a masterful blend of textures and finishes that elevate the livability of the Carmela, which offers three bathrooms, three full baths and two half-baths in 3,836 air-conditioned square-feet.
Living spaces are united with floors of creamy white European Oak and a curated collection of fine furniture that blends mangrove wood and oyster-colored shagreen – from a demi console in the foyer paired with burnished silver leaf sconces, to the table and buffet in the dining room that can elegantly accommodate both intimate dinner parties and grand holiday gatherings. A generous study presents the perfect work-from-home space, with a convenient half bath nearby.
A gallery space segues into the great room, offering an open design enhanced by natural light that showcases views of the custom pool and spa, and the lake and preserve beyond. Scott selected a hand-loomed wool rug to anchor the great room, where a pair of creamy linen sofas and two chairs are coupled with a mangrove and nickel finish cocktail table, while a bar cabinet, media console, and sofa and chairside tables of mangrove and shagreen complete the space.
In the kitchen and butler’s pantry, a taupe Pompeii quartz complements cabinetry from Soho Custom in an Oregon pine-textured melamine finish. The island features a dramatic waterfall edge of White Macaubas quartz, paired with a quartet of mixed material stools and a pair of antique nickel pendant lamps. A Sub-Zero refrigerator and Wolf appliances further enhance the kitchen’s design. A round mangrove top dining table with a shagreen base offers additional casual seating in the café space.
A master vestibule and hallway create an elegant transition to a truly private owner’s retreat features a handsome king bed finished with golden bronze and acrylic accents, flanked by champagne silver nightstands. An artistic chandelier of vintage brass with glass pendant crystals and lounge chairs with burnished silver leaf trim and clear acrylic side tables offers an intimate conversation area. The suite also offers dual walk-in closets, a bath with a graceful freestanding tub, and access to the pool area.
The outdoor living area features ample room for dining and lounging, along with a complete outdoor kitchen, pool bath, and a fire pit with seating for all-season entertainment. Here, light grey granite counters and fossil grey cabinets are complemented by pavers and pool deck tile and coping in flecked, textured tones of tan. Champagne-white framed chaises with gunmetal fabric are paired with a frosted glass topped dining table and coffee table. A Flo fire table adds drama to the welcoming space.
Two guest suites provide comfortable accommodations for visiting family and friends. In addition to the two-car garage, another single-car garage is connected to the laundry room through a breezeway corridor and provides a separate entrance to the home.
