When we think of Sarasota FL, we think of award-winning white sand beaches, a vibrant downtown area, a camaraderie unlike any we’ve seen, and gorgeous luxury homes that coincide with the Sarasota lifestyle sought after by many taking the trip to Florida. Now, London Bay Homes has brought the beach home with the beautiful Girona model home at The Founders Club.
The Girona is one of London Bay Homes’ most popular floor plans, inviting you in with an open concept design and toting multiple awards for that same design and construction, including Best Architectural Detail, Best Floor Plan, Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, and Best Overall in its price range. The Best Overall designation is also attributed to the subtle and elegant interior design by Michael Scott of Romanza Interior Design.
Scott envisioned a relaxing day at the beach when he incorporated a palette of sands and grays with subtle greens and rusts for a beach bungalow-inspired design in the open spaces of the Girona. These nature-inspired colors complement the open floor plan’s practicality and flexibility, bringing the look of soft lapping waves, gentle breezes, and warm white sands to this single-family home.
This design inspiration is evident in the great room’s rustic beam ceiling that intermingles light and warm walnut brown wood tones with modern and eclectic furniture styles. You can soak in the views outside with the sliding glass doors found din the room while sitting comfortably in the curved benches, coffee-colored leather chair, or the armchairs upholstered in a striped sand and ivory fabric.
When hunger strikes, the luxury kitchen is situated just next to the great room for easy access every day or for those special occasions when you’ve invited friends and neighbors over for a delicious dinner. Cook up a meal using fresh ingredients that will dance on your guests’ tastebuds with your stainless steel 48-inch Wolf range, Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, and microwave oven. The cream-toned designer cabinetry and Carrara countertops with a leather finish will provide a clean slate for your culinary skills and the adjoining nook or nearby dining room with matching two-tiered black iron chandeliers will set the tone for a cozy dinner. When all is said and done, the gray free-standing granite island breakfast bar with a double sink and dishwasher will make cleanup a breeze.
With your digestifs in hand, you and your guests can take in the breathtaking sunset views ver the lake and golf course from the outdoor living space of the Girona, accessible through the sliding glass doors in the great room and nook. The outdoor living space will allow for relaxing days by the sparkling custom pool and raised spa featuring a sun shelf, or serve up an al fresco dining experience under the Florida sunshine with an outdoor kitchen equipped with a professional-grade grill. If nature’s small friends decide to come for the party, you can easily utilize the motorized retractable screens to deny them entrance.
A good night’s rest in the Girona’s master bedroom will feel like you’re sleeping on a soft patch of sand under the stars with a comfortable and fluffy bed with a medium-toned wood frame and an upholstered headboard. The iron chandelier will provide a soft light that will disperse into the tray ceiling for a cozy evening in. French doors in the master bedroom will allow moonlight to stream in or allow you to let in the fresh night air.
