The Delfina may have won Best Curb Appeal during the 2015 Parade of Homes, but the appeal of this estate home goes above and beyond its exterior. Like a great book, the cover is just the start to everything that is oh-so-right about this London Bay Homes model.
The 4,329 A/C square foot Delfina begins with transitional Mediterranean architecture and a dramatic brick paver driveway and motor court located on almost half an acre overlooking a lake and the golf course. Once through the doors, you’ll find yourself swept away by the four bedroom, four and one-half bathroom home ideally equipped with a large family room residing directly next to a gorgeous kitchen and living room. Decorated by the award-winning designers of Romanza Interior Design, this Sarasota Forida home features a soft white backdrop in the living room, kitchen, family room, and the game room punctuated by sunny citrus colors for a fun and casual atmosphere. The transitional design is further emphasized using clean-lined furniture with wood, stone, metal, and glass finishes, as well as a light, neutral palette used to bring out the splashes of color throughout the home. These color and texture combinations visually open the room for a bright and airy feeling. This open feel is facilitated by the large space blending the family room with the game room and kitchen. The two rooms are separated only by a custom-built, 60-inch pop-up television to pair with the matching television that is wall-mounted in the game room just above the billiard table.
The spacious gourmet kitchen, featuring a walk-in pantry and granite free-standing island, blends in well with the space with low-sheen arctic white cabinetry featuring raised paneled doors, display glass shelves, and crown molding. Hints of golden jade are found in the granite countertops and mosaic glass backsplash to complement the accents of gold found in the dining room’s twin chandeliers, place settings atop the rectangular wood table, the latticework backs of the host chairs, and in the scroll overlays on the buffet’s mirrored doors.
On days when Sarasota weather welcomes us with warm sunshine eased by cool breezes, the Delfina’s inviting floor plan opens up with the use of zero-corner pocketing 10-foot sliding glass doors in the living room. These sliding doors, also found in the family room, lead out to a simple and elegant pool deck featuring a serene and captivating view of the custom pool, raised spa, waterfall feature, and lake.
After a full day of entertaining guests, homeowners can escape to the tranquil setting of their master bedroom, where a palette of muted citrus and gray accents lays against the soft white found in the linen lamp shades, nightstands, dresser, and bedding. The subdued nature of the room is livened with pewter accents and scrollwork embellishing the window treatments and the upholstery of a bench at the foot of the bed. Sliding glass doors provide a private exit to the pool deck and a resort-inspired view of pool, spa and lake. A single door leads out to the covered verandah.
The Delfina offers 5,943 total square feet, including its outdoor areas and a three-car garage. It is priced at $2,178,900, fully-furnished.
