London Bay has transformed Mediterra with the introduction of new neighborhoods showcasing single-family villa and estate model homes with Coastal-influenced exterior architectural styles and open-concept interiors designed by Romanza Interior Design. Custom pools and outdoor living areas by London Bay overlook Mediterra’s spectacular tableau. Purchasers of homes by London Bay are eligible to secure a full golf membership immediately rather than being placed on the membership waiting list as a Limited Golf Member. London Bay manages all new home construction sales and marketing for Mediterra.
London Bay has created a new concept in luxury villas in Mediterra’s Lucarno neighborhood that blends the unmatched splendor of Naples with the intimacy of the Old World. The neighborhood’s lakes, gardens, and fountains are characteristic of the timeless, natural beauty found in Northern Italy. Maintenance-free lakeside villas range from 2,900 square feet to over 4,000 square feet. At build-out, Lucarno will include 71 lakeside villas priced from $1.5 million.
Priced at $2,250,000 fully-furnished, 3,257 square feet under air Falerno model in Lucarno is a short walk from Mediterra’s gardens and oriented to provide lakefront views. The Falerno’s open-concept floor plan features an adjoining great room, gourmet kitchen, and dining room, a private study, three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a covered outdoor living area and kitchen, a custom semi-circular pool with a spa and a curved fire feature, and a three-car garage. The master suite features a spacious walk-in closet and a luxurious master bath with dual vanities, a free-standing soaking tub, and a walk-in shower.
The Falerno’s timeless transitional interior design is grounded in a color palette that includes neutral vanilla-toned backgrounds with amber, slate, and grey-toned accents. Light-toned oak wood flooring is presented in seven and a half-inch wide planks with an Aspen finish. Extensive contemporary millwork details are found throughout the home’s living areas, including over transom doors as well as on accent walls in the great room. The great room and dining room’s spectacular seventeen and a half-foot ceiling is finished with two coffers fashioned from tongue and groove pyramid style millwork painted in a muted tan tone that contrasts the vanilla tone walls beautifully. Two chandeliers with a blacksmith finish are suspended from each of the pyramids. A millwork banding is set just below the transom windows on the great room’s feature wall and above the sliders leading to the outdoor living area. A stained wood media cabinet is centered between the windows on the feature wall.
The adjacent dining area is anchored by a rustic table with a triple-trestle base and a wood top finished in vintage acacia. Upholstered dining chairs convey a more contemporary feeling. The kitchen’s perfectly sized island features a honey seamed base topped by an alpine granite counter with bronze-toned veining that conveys a strong sense of movement. Alabaster Shaker-style perimeter cabinets play against Taj Mahal quartz countertops. The neutral backsplash has been fashioned from 4-inch by 12-inch white glaze porcelain tile.
The Falerno model’s spacious outdoor living area provides yet another ideal gathering place when entertaining. The countertops in the outdoor kitchen are a dark man-made material with a square edge and attractive veining that play against a stainless-steel vent hood and cabinetry drawers. A circular bronze dining table and chairs are perfect for entertaining while the conversation area is outfitted with wicker chairs with empire dove fabric and a u-shaped brown glass cocktail table. An additional seating area with contemporary bronze-finished lounge chairs with oatmeal toned cushions is grouped around a fire pit.
The Bianca model is on display in Caminetto, the newest of Mediterra’s Lake District neighborhoods developed by London Bay. An enclave of 15 luxurious single-family villa homes from the high $1-millions to the low $3-millions, Caminetto celebrates views of glistening fountained lakes and nature preserves along with short walks to the Parterre Garden. Priced at $2,774,000 fully-furnished, the 3,735 square feet under air Bianca residence features a massive great room that opens to a covered terrace, a dining area, an island kitchen with wine storage, a bonus room with a linear fireplace and pocketing sliders that open to the outdoors, a private study, three bedrooms, four baths, and an outdoor living area with an outdoor kitchen and dining area and a custom pool with a sun shelf and spa. The master suite includes dual walk-in closets and a bath with dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. The plan also includes a two-car garage and a one-car garage.
The Bianca model presents an interior by Romanza’s Luann Powers Gliwski. She has imbued the Bianca with a sense of relaxed luxury while conveying a feeling of exceptional livability. Her color palette includes warm neutral backgrounds with vibrant sapphire, topaz, and jade jewel-toned accents. The palette plays against wide-plank whitewashed wire brushed oak flooring. The walls and the ceiling in the Bianca’s foyer are covered with bronze-toned metallic grass cloth. Light bronze metal consoles with two-inch thick glass tops flank the symmetrically designed foyer. A long niche wall in the great room is finished in the same bronze-toned metallic grass cloth. A media cabinet is finished in a champagne tone and positioned beneath a 70-inch television. The kitchen island features a charcoal toned base cabinet with a horizontal grain topped by a light, neutral-toned stone counter surface with shades of silver and charcoal veining and sparkling mica chips. The perimeter cabinetry is presented in a neutral finish that coordinates with the wall color and Pompeii quartz countertops, while the backsplash has been fashioned with cream-toned 6 by 6-inch ceramic tiles.
