Featured Model Design: The New Girona at The Founders Club

The Founders Club offers 700 beautifully landscaped acres of picturesque lakes, gently swaying stands of pines, palms, and moss-covered oaks. Amongst the glorious nature found in this boutique-style community are the designs of The Founders Club’s trusted partners: London Bay Homes and Romanza Interior Design. After all, what’s a beautiful community without the added benefit of an equally beautiful home to call your own?

As part of a new blog series, we’re detailing the beautiful designs found in the homes for sale in our Sarasota golf community, with our first subject being the luxury coastal design found in the Girona. The Girona is a three bedroom, three bath single-family home with 3,526 square feet of interior living space. The highlight of the floor plan is its Great Room, which serves as a comfortable and expansive living space that also provides a smooth transition from the entrance of the home to the kitchen, nook, and outdoor living space.

Designed by Michael Scott of Romanza Interior Design, the Girona features a palette of sands and grays with subtle greens and rusts for a beach bungalow-inspired design. The living room intermingles light and warm walnut brown wood tones with modern and eclectic furniture styles, including two curved benches, a coffee-colored leather chair, and two armchairs upholstered in a striped sand and ivory fabric. The adjoining dining room features a two-tiered black iron chandelier above a round table circled by six chairs upholstered in a striped ivory and gray fabric.


Cream-toned cabinetry in the kitchen has paneled doors, rubbed edges for an aged look, and Carrara counter tops with a leather finish. Beadboard backsplashes nod to the cottage look, while the stove’s handmade tile backsplash adds a hint of shine. The kitchen also offers a stainless steel 48-inch Wolf range, Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and microwave oven. A free-standing island, painted gray, has a double sink and dishwasher, a trio of linen-hued upholstered barstools, and lantern pendant lighting above. The nook is located adjacent to the kitchen and will feature a rustic wood table under a black iron chandelier (matching the chandelier from the dining room), upholstered chairs, and woven wicker host and hostess chairs.


The Master Bedroom has hickory flooring, also used throughout the main living area, as well as medium-toned wood furniture, an upholstered headboard, and a tray ceiling with iron chandelier. The first guestroom features pale blue walls and subdued gray and citrus stripes in a bolster pillow and bench fabrics. The second guestroom continues the beach-inspired theme with shades of pale green, coral and sand.
