Residences at Seaglass offer enhanced indoor/outdoor experience

03/09/2017

Vertical construction of The Ronto Group’s 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass luxury high-rise tower within Bonita Bay continues to progress at a rapid pace and remains on schedule for completion in 15 months. Concrete for the building’s 10th floor has been poured and a new floor is being poured every two weeks. At the same time, sales activity is escalating. The building is more than 50 percent sold and sales volume is over $120 million.

All of the building’s penthouse residences have been sold. A selection of Seaglass tower residences, ranging from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air priced starting at just over $1 million, remains available. The tower residences will include dual private elevator grand foyers, large island kitchens, three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, or three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths, walk-in closets in the owner’s suite, and sliders opening to multiple outdoor spaces that include a gas grill. Ten-foot ceiling heights are included per plan.

The outdoor spaces in the Seaglass tower residences merge the indoor and outdoor living experience while providing sunset views. The 301-306 tower residences enhance the indoor/outdoor experience even further. While the tower residences on floors four through 19 include three terraces with a total of 525 square feet, the 301-306 residences offer extended terraces that are wrapped by planters and include curved walls, pavered decking material, a trellis that will provide a shaded seating area, and a gas grill. Units one and six on level three will offer 1,460 total square feet of terrace space; units two and five, a total of 1,705 square feet; and units three and four, a total of 1,610 square feet. Pricing for the 301-306 residences starts at $1.18 million. A 306 model with an interior designed by Renee Gaddis, NCIDQ, ASID, GREEN AP, president and principal designer at Renee Gaddis Interiors, is priced at $1.825 million with furnishings.

Gaddis’s design for the 306 model will showcase classic styling with a contemporary edge. She will incorporate a variety of wood tones to complement a color palette based on cool matte blue grays. The flooring will be a warm wood tone with coffered ceiling details throughout. Finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio, located within the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay, are incorporated in the design. Ronto’s Finishing Touches Program allows future residents to visit the Design Studio and select finishes for their home’s flooring, cabinetry, counter tops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. Future residents may also specify finishes from other sources.

The 306 tower residence floor plan offers 3,421 square feet under air. The open great room plan includes three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom, three-and-a-half baths, an island kitchen and dining area, and a private elevator lobby. The model includes an optional fireplace and a dry bar with wine storage.

From the elevator, a private lobby will provide a grand welcome. Adorned with fluted wall paneling in a pale neutral gray and a diamond-shaped flooring detail of inlaid white and blue Lagos marble, the space will accommodate a console with a mirror above and a large round tufted ottoman. Decorative crown molding and pendant lighting will add to the sense of arrival. Double doors will open to the foyer where the lobby’s flooring inset will be repeated for balanced emphasis. Applied moldings, millwork detail, and upgraded crown molding will add architectural texture. The foyer will lead to the kitchen, dining room, and great room.

The ceiling design in the dining area and kitchen will incorporate a unique double step detail with drywall plastered beams. While some final selections remain to be determined, the dining area between the kitchen and the great room will feature an elongated rectangular table that will seat eight. The kitchen will present a fresh clean aura with light counter tops, including the enormous island.

The great room will feature another ceiling detail in a checkerboard style and multiple seating areas for both practicality and aesthetic charm. A fireplace clad in streamlined marble will provide the focus for the television viewing area. Here, a sofa and two armchairs will be grouped with a cocktail table and two end tables. Behind the sofa, a console table with decorative lamps will provide space for two ottomans tucked underneath. In one corner, a discreet dry bar will create an oasis for wine tasting with a small table and chairs. In another corner, separated from the dry bar by a wide window, a built-in banquette with a diamond tufted back and two separate chairs will be grouped around a square table. The furnishings will be classic in style with fabrics and finishes that lean towards the transitional.

From the great room, pocketing sliders will open to a wide terrace where the owners will enjoy the views and al fresco Florida lifestyle. This generous space will accommodate a grill zone with a large dining table and chairs for six people as well as a conversation lounge area with an L-shaped sectional sofa adorned with decorative pillows and a round cocktail table.

From the great room, a short hallway leads to the owner’s suite where the home’s neutral color palette will continue. Gaddis will introduce an applied molding detail on the headboard wall featuring an arrangement of rectangles that are larger on the top and smaller on the bottom for added texture and dimension. A magnificent bed with an upholstered headboard and footboard will command attention. In a blend of painted and wood finishes, the night stands and dresser will add interest. A bench at the foot of the bed will add practicality while two side chairs will provide a quiet place for reading. Sliding glass doors will open to the terrace.

A hallway past two generous walk-in closets will lead to the owner’s bathroom. While final selections are yet to be made, his-and-her vanity cabinetry will feature solid surface counter tops and sleek finishes. The bathroom includes an impressive shower, freestanding tub and ample space for a dressing ottoman.

The den will be entered through an exterior-mounted sliding door that rolls smoothly to the side like a barn door, but with contemporary flair. The den will function as a second gathering area, a lounging retreat space for relaxation and television viewing. Gaddis’s plan calls for a U-shaped sofa across from a custom built-in media wall that will accommodate a large television, display shelving and storage cabinetry.

Recognizing the importance of maintaining a dedicated computer workspace within the home, Gaddis’s design will incorporate a custom office niche with a built-in desk and shelving discreetly tucked away within the hallway of the guest area.

The two guest suites with elaborate ceiling details will each feature a private bathroom and offer a private terrace with patio furniture. In these rooms, pendant lighting will be suspended from the ceilings above the nightstands rather than lamps.
