The draw of West Indies architecture from a luxury home builder in Florida with more than 25 years of experience and an Old Florida-inspired interior design from an award-winning design firm is what makes The Chelston model home an irresistible stopping point for ABC7’s Out and About Southwest Florida.
Out and About Southwest Florida is a television show highlighting businesses in the Southwest Florida area. London Bay Homes was honored to be featured in this program, and chose The Chelston model home in Old Naples as the spotlight home of the tour. The Chelston home is part of the luxury home builder’s Naples Collection, on-your-lot luxury custom homes in select home sites spanning from Park Shore to Port Royal. This particular model is a two-story, single family home located at 631 Broad Court, just blocks from the Gulf of Mexico’s white sandy beaches and the fine dining and elite shopping of downtown Fifth Avenue South. It features three bedrooms and three full and one half bathrooms in its 4,227 sq. ft. of living space, as well as a study, formal dining, kitchen, breakfast nook, and a great room. The great room serves as the perfect open gathering space for friends and families alike, especially with the large transom windows that let in natural light to invigorate the home. Then, there’s the second-story which features 1,245 square feet with two bedrooms with private full baths and walk-in closets, and a loft with a wet bar and undercounter refrigerator.
Designed by London Bay Homes and Romanza Interior Design, the Chelston’s luxury living space was designed to mirror the carefree Naples lifestyle with natural walnut wood floors throughout the main living area and an off-white background to serve as a prime setting for the bright and fun colors used in the design. Melissa Allen of Romanza Interior Design has made the West Indies home pop with vibrant colors such as rain forest citrus, teal, coral, butter, and eggplant. The combination of a neutral background and the energetic tones of the accent colors really capture the island feeling as can be seen in the Out and About Southwest Florida clip below.
Highlights of the home that are not shown in the video include a beautiful Master bedroom complete with a spa-like master bathroom featuring a dark walnut floating vanity with marble countertops, a glass title backsplash, porcelain tile flooring and walls, and a freestanding tub. Of course, you can always escape through the sliding glass doors in the shower to absorb the beauty of the private master garden with an outdoor shower, pebble stone flooring, wall fountain, and plants.
If showering outside isn’t how you like to spend your time outdoors, there are multiple exits in the home that lead you to the majestic outdoor living area. The first is through double doors in the master suite that lead you to a private patio adjacent to the raised spa. You can also reach the outdoor living area through the pocketing sliding glass doors in the great room and the sliding glass doors in the breakfast nook, where you can enjoy sipping a great cup of coffee or tea while enjoying the view filled with trellises, built-in planters and a secluded fire pit. The outdoor area is also an excellent venue for social gatherings with outdoor living and dining areas with resort-style chaises, a fully equipped summer kitchen, and a custom linear pool accented with moon-hued brick mosaic glass tile with a dark Tahoe blue interior. These areas, plus the entryway and two-car garage allow for more than 5,000 total square feet. Watch our digital tour below for a full walkthrough of The Chelston.
