Featured Waterfront Home: Schedule your Tour of the Benita in Miromar Lakes

by Gina Watters

London Bay Homes has recently completed construction on a luxurious villa home with a peaceful lake view in a vibrant community.  Featuring a refreshing coastal design and 3,102 air-conditioned square feet, the Benita in Portofino at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club is now available for viewing.

The Benita blends with the exquisite styling of London Bay Homes’ Portofino neighborhood with Spanish-influenced architecture featuring clean, white stucco and a terracotta barrel roof tile.  Walk through the modernized custom double iron and glass entry doors and you’ll receive a breath of fresh air with the interior design stylings of Michael Scott from Romanza Interior Design.

Scott designed the semi-furnished villa home to show a coastal- and tropical-inspired theme throughout its open floor plan with ivory-hued backgrounds like the shell-stone flooring in the main living areas and the master bath, the alabaster finishes for bathroom and kitchen cabinetry, and light travertine and quartz countertops.  The lighter hues extend to the painted furniture, but are highlighted by the tropical colors displayed in the art pieces, accents, and bedding.  Clean-lined decorative fixtures will boost the overall design by adding a modern twist.  Although some of the interior design elements have been chosen for the Benita’s future homeowner, Scott has balanced the design to make it versatile and easy to incorporate any design elements that will display your unique style and personality.

Your design touches can instantly be seen upon entering the waterfront home with elements added to the entryway and foyer, which opens up to the adjoining dining room with a buffet/art niche, great room, and kitchen area.  The entryway also provides access to the tech center located right beside the owner’s entry.  This tech center features custom cabinetry with a desk positioned under a window for a peaceful and productive space set away from the main areas of the home.

Past the foyer and great room, the luxury kitchen provides a strategic addition to the main living areas with a walk-in pantry, a freestanding island breakfast bar with seating for four, decorative glass doors on upper cabinetry, and a wine refrigerator.  This culinary space also provides a picturesque view of the lake just past the outdoor living area through the sliding glass doors of the café adjoining the kitchen.  These sliding glass doors provide access to the summer kitchen with a grill, sink, and refrigerator.

Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors in the great room also provide access to the outdoor living area where guests will be greeted to a custom pool and a pool deck finished with ivory stone concrete pavers installed in a basketweave pattern.  Just in time for football season, the al fresco living spaces of the Benita blend seamlessly with the interior living spaces for an ideal entertainment area complete with a backyard view of a tranquil lake.

The outdoor living spaces, covered entry, and three-car garage complete the waterfront home’s 4,554 total square feet, but the luxury of a London Bay Homes villa doesn’t stop there. Within the quaint village of Portofino, the 20-home neighborhood of waterfront homes, residents revel in a luxury living lifestyle with landscaping, pool, and exterior maintenance included and an optional private boat dock at your back door to provide you instant access to Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club’s 700 acres of contiguous aquamarine freshwater lakes.  These freshwater lakes provide endless opportunities for in-lake swimming, boating, sailing, water-skiing, and fishing.  As a Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club resident, you will also be able to take advantage of three miles of private, white sandy beach, fine and casual dining, a spa and fitness center, seven-court tennis club, and The Golf Club, featuring the private 18-hole Arthur Hills-designed course and 15-acre practice facility.
