Robb & Stucky’s Susan J. Bleda ASID and Rachelle Porco have created a chic, sophisticated interior for the 804-tower residence model at the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower being built by the award-winning Ronto Group within Bonita Bay. The 804 residence is one of three furnished models now open for viewing with a sales associate by appointment only. The additional models were designed by Cinnabar Design and Renee Gaddis Interiors. The model interiors include finishes 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.
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 at Seaglass range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet under air and are priced from the low $1 million’s. Sales contracts worth $148 million have been processed and the building is more than 70% sold.
The 3,088 square feet under air 804 tower residence floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, an open great room, dining area, and island kitchen, terrace space totaling 485 square feet, and a private elevator foyer. Bleda and Porco’s design exudes chic sophistication while providing an exceptional level of livability. Set against a background wall tone of sandy bisque that runs throughout the home, their color palette includes light creams and whites. Muted accents of frosted glass are layered with matte gold and silver metallics to evoke a sense of wave-smoothed seaglass. Furnishings are clean lined with fabrics that include the textural diversity of leather against cotton and linen.
Upon exiting the elevator into the residence’s private lobby, the sandy tones, natural woods, and lustrous surfaces evoke a sense of being beachside, a hint of the ambience that awaits beyond the foyer doors. A high-backed shelter sofa upholstered in a bisque fabric is set against faux-finished walls that display clear glass beads reminiscent of bubbles rising from the water.
Double doors open into the foyer where a side wall accommodates a putty colored console table and a stylish wall-mounted mirror. A rug adds a layer of texture and warmth. The foyer opens to the great room, dining room, and kitchen with breathtaking blue sky views through sliding glass doors.
In the living area, Bleda and Porco included a 10-foot wide fireplace installed within a built-out section of wall adorned with glistening wallpaper. The fireplace surround is clean and contemporary. Extra thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass is lighted from above to create bright display space. Two sofas set perpendicular to the fireplace are upholstered in bisque linen. Charming accent pillows provide textured contrast while maintaining tone-on-tone elegance. Two easy chairs face the fireplace, while in the center of the grouping a massive 60” x 60” cocktail table makes a statement.
To highlight the adjacent dining area, Bleda and Porco designed a striking rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers. An eye-catching chandelier illuminates a rectangular dining table with seating for eight. A buffet console stands against a wall adorned with a matte metallic finish.
The contemporary L-shaped kitchen features a counter-height island with space for food preparation and casual gatherings. Counter stools in a matte gold finish are upholstered in bisque leather while distinctive pendant lighting showcase interesting glass designs. Light-toned finishes were selected for the perimeter and island cabinetry with complementary light counter surfaces. In keeping with the seaglass theme, many of the cabinets feature frosted glass fronts.
The bisque color scheme continues on the terrace. Bleda and Porco selected a collection of wicker furniture in neutral tones. The generous space allows for designated dining and lounging areas, with room for a summer kitchen. The glistening water view feels like a natural extension of the beauty inside.
The den and two spacious guest suites both open to another terrace. The multi-purpose den offers a relaxed space that can function as an office, a lounging area, or an overflow bedroom. Bleda and Porco’s design includes light-toned built-in cabinetry across an entire wall with interconnected lighted shelving and a desk. An armchair and ottoman are grouped with a sleeper sofa.
A hallway leads from the great room to the master suite where the neutral wall tones deepen slightly. The seaglass motif continues in this serene private retreat. A contemporary four poster bed commands attention with a unique combination of Lucite and a matte gold metallic finish. The effect is solid and stylish and enhanced by a fabulous arrangement of linens. On either side of the bed, the nightstands showcase a blend of white and mirrored finishes while the tall dresser is entirely mirrored to reflect the natural light from the large window and sliding glass doors that lead onto the terrace. A hallway past his and her walk-in closets leads to the master bathroom where the design includes sea sponges, shells, and a background of stunning wall paper.
