The Ronto Group announced Cinnabar Design’s Diana Hall, ASID and Laurie Walter, ASID are creating the interior design for the Tower Residence 605 furnished model in the luxurious Seaglass high-rise tower now under construction within Bonita Bay. Residence 605 is one of three models Ronto will be presenting in the 26-floor, 120-unit high-rise. The interior designs for the additional models are being conceived and executed by Robb & Stucky and Renee Gaddis Interiors.
Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three luxurious tower residence great room floor plans range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet and are priced from just over $1 million. With the building’s penthouse residences sold out, Ronto is offering homebuyers an opportunity to join two upper units together to create a luxurious 6,200 square foot residence with scintillating views of the Gulf of Mexico. Each of the expanded residences will come with four protected access under-building parking spaces.
The Tower Residence 605 floor plan offers 2,889 square feet plus 464 square feet of covered outdoor terrace space. The light-filled, open-concept plan features a private elevator lobby, and a gallery hallway that leads from the foyer to a spacious living area with a great room, gourmet island kitchen, dining area, and a sitting area. The great room, dining area, and the owner’s suite all open to a terrace with spectacular views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The plan includes two guest bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. The designers have chosen to transform one of the guest room spaces into a handsome study. The remaining guest suite opens to a terrace with a southeasterly view.
Hall and Walter have taken their inspiration from the name of the spectacular high-rise tower. With a sophisticated urban color palette of tonal neutrals and the liberal use of sea glass aqua and warm beige accents, the residence will provide a luxurious framework for the incredible views of Estero Bay and the Gulf waters. The designers’ plan will include a contemporary approach to create a welcoming sense of anticipation from the private elevator foyer, through the gallery hallway, and into a great room with breathtaking west-facing views. The main flooring will be done in a large format light Italian porcelain with a subtle tracing of pale gray to create a seamless flow of sophisticated elegance throughout the residence.
The elevator doors will open to the private lobby’s dramatically lighted focal wall featuring an installation of colorful oversized art glass discs. The innovative lighting technique is planned to make the entire foyer wall glow and create a jewel box effect in the entry. The designers’ plan includes a substantial floating ledge for an unexpected touch of drama and custom rounded ceiling details that will drop down into the space and echo the shapes of the glass discs. They also plan to place two ottomans under the floating ledge in the entry. Through the double doors into the gallery hallway, the design plan calls for the ceiling details to continue through the gallery. The designers envision a sleek modern furniture piece for the gallery and plan to install a striking original work of art hung above it. The designers hope to create a sense of anticipation as the flow from the hallway into the great room will reveal the scope of the magnificent setting as the Bay and Gulf views appear.
In the sleek and contemporary kitchen, the designers have selected white flat panel cabinets and a white quartz countertop for both the island and the perimeter. The quartz is planned to have a subtle movement in the white finish. The backsplash is planned to be a highly textured sea glass mosaic tile and the modern barstool designs will include white leather upholstery with polished chrome bases.
In the great room, the designers envision a semi-circular sectional done in textured soft beige fabric and accented with sea glass toned pillows. They also plan to include a luxurious textured area rug and a large Lucite and glass cocktail table to anchor the space. The innovative shape of the sofa will be designed to allow 270 degree views of the surrounding area and will also echo the circular design elements of the glass art discs and the ceiling details. Two rounded back swivel chairs are planned to be set with a small table by the west window to allow spectacular sunset viewing. The feature wall will be designed to include a custom wood built-in and will incorporate a low media console in driftwood beige and white lacquer finish placed below the wall-hung television. The dining room design will include a dramatic contemporary wine wall for storage and display. A long, sleek rectangular glass dining table with a chrome base is planned to partner with eight leather upholstered dining chairs with chrome bases. Striking contemporary chrome lighting fixtures are also planned for the room.
Adjacent to the great room and dining area, a large west-facing terrace will include a seating area with a low profile resin wicker sofa and chair and a bunching style cocktail table. The terrace will also include a gas grill and a bistro table for al fresco dining and casual entertaining.
The owners’ suite will be designed in multi-toned white hues for an overall sense of quiet elegance. The designers’ plan calls for a custom floor-to-ceiling headboard wall detail fashioned from large squares upholstered in white fabric. The design of the serene room will also incorporate subdued white lacquer nightstands and a large white lacquer dresser. A club chair and drink table are also slated for the bedroom. Two large closets will flank the hallway to the master bath. The owners’ suite will have sliding doors that open onto the main terrace and offer amazing views to the west.
The owners’ bath design includes a tonal white palette with contrasting textural elements. The flooring will be done in 24 x 24-inch soft beige porcelain and the cabinetry is planned to be done in white with Carrera countertops. The plan calls for the wall behind the free standing tub to be clad in a deeply sculpted white Carrera tile that is new to the market and has strong visual appeal. Large vanity mirrors and polished chrome contemporary lighting and fixtures will complete the look.
In response to positive feedback gained from interviews with potential Seaglass residence buyers, the designers plan to make one of the two guest bedrooms into a den for more flexibility and use. The remaining guest room will be east facing and will have its own private terrace with a seating area.
The interiors of the Seaglass models will include finishes now on display at the Seaglass Design Studio located at the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive in Bonita Bay. Ronto’s Finishing Touches Program allows future residents to visit the Design Studio and select finishes for their new home’s flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. Future residents may also specify finishes from other sources. With construction underway, opportunities to select finishes will become progressively limited.
Visit the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Visit Seaglass online at www.seaglassatbonitabay.com.
