Antilles’ newest model
Open plan + decorator style = best Coach Home yet
A cool, tonal palette, plush contemporary furnishings, and fine finishes distinguish Antilles’ newest decorator model as a thoroughly high-style residence. The secret is its expanded Saba floor plan, an open design that spaces the living and dining areas apart just enough to allow for separate usages, but close enough for when real life overlaps. As in all of Antilles’ floorplans, the classic coach home’s kitchen gets top billing for its wonderfully expanded peninsula breakfast bar, a true heart of the home gathering place for meals, conversations, and serene views of its private landscaped orientation.
The model’s main living area is lit to perfection by recessed lighting and an elegant chandelier. But more than that, and counterpoint to the Saba’s shadow-colored upholstered furnishings, light seems to catch and bounce across its reflective surfaces. Mirrored and metallic pieces are used to great effect to enliven the home. Show-stopper lamps, a small assemblage of textural wall objects too dissimilar to ignore, bright quartz and the refracted shimmer of kitchen backsplash tiles—even the silvery Agreeable Gray walls themselves—are finished to reflect rather than absorb light. The main living area is as inviting as its deep-cushioned seating and as engaging as its light show detailing.
Color is used sparingly throughout the model, but always as a harmonizing underscore to its tonal palette. The bold master suite does it best. The spacious setting is arranged to focus on its central furnishings that seem to rise like a deepest Aegean-blue oasis above the reedy woven furnishings and cushy carpeting. It is a spare and masterful effect.
The Saba’s split-bedroom floorplan locates the master suite across the unit from the guest rooms, which can be accessed by a separate side entrance apart from the front door. This was a popular feature in Phase One Classic Coach Homes and has been maintained through the balance of their Phase Two development. Like the home’s impact- and wind-rated front door, the multi-windowed side entrance lets the sunlight in, keeping the guest wing bright all day. The model presents its third bedroom as an office to illustrate its flex space functionality.
In a part of Southwest Florida notable for its high resort living, Antilles’ location is exceptional for its quiet, cul-de-sac location and still natural preserve-enclosed setting minutes from the best white sand beaches to the south and all the stellar boutique attractions to the west that Naples offers. Sun, serenity, and southern sweet tea still resonate as its defining theme.
