Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi and Lead Designer Adriene Ged have completed the interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Oak Hill grand estate model at Quail West.  The model is now open for viewing and purchase.  The Oak Hill features an architectural design by RG Designs, and custom landscaping, an outdoor living area, and a pool designed by Outside Productions.    The Oak Hill model’s stunning interior design was selected as Home & Design Magazine’s February 2021 Signature Home.  For information about Seagate’s Oak Hill model at Quail West, contact Seagate’s Brett Backus at 239.572.0722 or via email at [email protected] 

Priced at $4,895,000 furnished, Seagate’s furnished Oak Hill model includes 5,760 square feet under air plus an outdoor living area featuring an outdoor kitchen with an island bar and dining area, a conversation area with a fireplace, a pool with sun shelves, six bubblers, and a raised spa, and a trellised area with a fire pit.  A parlour overlooks the pool.  A dining area with a glass-encased walk-in wine room and a bar is situated between the parlour and the great room and double-island kitchen.  The great room opens to the outdoor conversation area.  The plan includes three guest suites, two of which open to the outdoors.  A study also overlooks the outdoors.  The owner’s bedroom features a sitting area with sliders opening to a covered patio.  Walk-in closets and a morning bar are positioned in a hallway leading to an owner’s bathroom with his and her vanities and water closets.  The bath also features a walk-in shower and a free-standing tub.  Captivating ceiling designs are found throughout the home.

Ruta and Adriene’s design for the Oak Hill model’s clean-lined interior blurs the line between the indoors and outdoors.  An organic color palette features warm white and soft canvas backgrounds with hints of green and black, including black window frames.  The color scheme is anchored by light oak hardwood flooring.  Numerous features bring the outdoors in, including a poolside trellised area and a shower in the master bath overlooking a garden.  Floor to ceiling windows contribute to the clean, organic feeling of the design. 

The foyer’s view of the spa and pool deck establishes the Oak Hill’s connection to the outdoors.  The ceiling in the foyer and parlour features a reverse soffit with backlighting and a tray detail.  Four chairs and a cocktail table are positioned adjacent to the walk-in wine room and provide a place to enjoy the view.

The dining room also provides views of the outdoors and a bubbler water feature.  An island bar features floating shelves set in front of a window, a bar sink, pendant lighting over a quartzite counter, and an undercounter refrigerator and ice maker.  Three windows offer views of the landscaping at the front of the home.

The great room accommodates a seating area with a sofa, end tables, a cocktail table, and four side chairs.  A built-in media center graces the feature wall.  Pocketing sliders open the space to the outdoors.  One island in the kitchen offers seating and feature pendant lighting fixtures.  A second island provides a food preparation space.  The Thermadore appliance package features paneled fronts.  A butler’s pantry is located off the kitchen.

The study features a window with black trim and a reverse soffit ceiling with rope lighting.  The connection to the outdoors continues in the master bedroom where sliders open the sitting area to a covered patio.  A hallway with a morning bar and walk-in closets leads to a master bath with dual water closets, a walk-in shower, a free-standing tub, and dual vanities.  A window in the shower provides a view of a walled garden.

Theory Design has also created the interiors for Seagate’s luxurious models at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, Talis Park, and Esplanade Lake Club.  Designed by RG Designs and priced at $3,295,000 with furnishings, Seagate’s Burrata model at Miromar Lakes includes 4,068 square feet under air and a 1,058 square-foot outdoor living area.  Outside Productions is crafting the home’s outdoor living area, pool and spa, and landscaping.  The Burrata model is scheduled for completion in May 2021 and will feature an interior created by Ruta that conveys a sense of casual elegance.

Ruta also created the interior for Seagate’s Monterey model in the Isola Bella neighborhood at Talis Park in North Naples that is now open for viewing and purchase.  One of Talis Park’s most coveted neighborhoods, Isola Bella is 4.5-acre enclave of 17 single-family waterfront homes being developed by Seagate.  Priced at $3.995 million furnished, the two-story, 4,414 square feet under air model presents a modern coastal feeling with soft neutral grey and white backgrounds, dark walnut, natural oak and ebony accents, and warm wire-brushed oak flooring.

Ruta, Lead Designer Adriene Ged, and Interior Designer Cynde Thompson designed the interiors for three Seagate models at Esplanade Lake Club, a 778-acre resort lifestyle community being developed by Taylor Morrison just east of I-75 in Fort Myers.  The gated community is positioned on a 352-acre lake.  Priced at $2,350,000 furnished, Seagate’s completed, 3,299 square feet under air Monaco model showcases a coastal beach style interior with a casually elegant feeling.  The furnished Genova model includes 3,892 square feet under air and an outdoor living area measuring 1,058 square feet.  Priced at $2,999,000 furnished and scheduled for completion in January 2021, the Genova model offers a modern interior that reflects a world travel style with art, fabrics, rugs, and accessories with global influences.  Seagate’s Santorini model is priced at $2,899,000 furnished and will be completed in February 2021.  An island modern design style will pay homage to Santorini’s stature as Greece’s most beautiful island.
