London Bay’s newest model home at The Founders Club features interior design by award-winning Romanza Interior Design

Showcasing a sophisticated design with custom natural rift white oak cabinetry and accents of sapphire blue and fern green, the Pembrook by London Bay Homes embodies a coastal retreat with interiors by Luann Powers Gliwski of Romanza Interior Design.  

The newest single-family model home nearing completion at The Founders Club, the Pembrook will offer 3,560 square feet of living space featuring London Bay Homes’ latest architectural designs, including a shower garden off the master bath, expanded outdoor destinations and a larger front porch, as well as a study and bonus room for individual homebuyer customization.

The Pembrook’s home design, which emphasizes flowing, open space connections among the great room, kitchen and dining room, is enhanced by award-winning Romanza Interior Design’s selection of hand-scraped and wire-brushed oak flooring in a grey mist finish.

Gliwski said the Pembrook’s clean-lined classic design has a contemporary look complemented with a cool, elegant palette.

Throughout the home, soft neutral backdrops of alabaster and dove gray are accented with slate gray and jewel tones. A variety of wood finishes mix with gleaming nickel, chrome and mirrored surfaces.

Multiple boundary-blurring pocket sliding glass doors blend indoor and outdoor spaces. The great room opens to a covered terrace, while the bonus room’s zero-corner pocket sliders flow to a wraparound alfresco space offering living and dining areas and an outdoor kitchen. A lavish pool and spa created by London Bay’s Acquatico pool design company features a Silver Pearl interior accented with a Lunada Bay glass mosaic waterline tile in shades of greens and blues.

The gourmet-inspired kitchen offers a six-burner cooktop, a built-in microwave and oven tower. Alabaster painted cabinetry with recessed paneled doors and a slate gray-stained grand island are both topped with Pompeii Quartz White Mist and complemented with a brick pattern stone mosaic backsplash in shades of white, gray and charcoal.

The great room media wall has a horizontal board and batten treatment with an alabaster semi-gloss painted finish. Crown molding and tray ceilings grace the great room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.

A door in the master bedroom opens to the sun deck. The master suite also will offer two walk-in closets and a bath with a custom dove gray finish recessed paneled-door vanity topped with Pompeii Quartz White Mist, and an Imperial Pearl stone floor. A freestanding tub and a dramatic glass shower enclosure with only partial walls on either side elevate the bath to spa-like status.

On the opposite side of the home, the Pembrook’s two guest rooms feature en suite baths and walk-in closets.

Enhanced architectural styling details enhance the three-car garage home, including decorative brackets, rafter tails, lap siding, hipped roofs with flat tiles, and crisp window proportion.

Located on almost half an acre, the Pembrook model home has 5,527 total square feet, three bedrooms, four baths, and overlooks a lake and the community’s Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed championship golf course.

Priced at $1,990,000, the Pembrook is scheduled for completion this summer.
