BCBE Construction LLC was honored to have been chosen as the General Contractor for the 2015 Golf Magazine National Dream House in Talis Park, a Kitson & Partners community in Naples, FL. BCBE worked with Architecture and Planning by Weber Design Group, and Interiors by Design West. Together, we created the home that Golf Magazine described as the “ideal abode, marrying luxurious comfort and amenities, the ultimate home for any duffer.”
This two-story estate home is located on a home-site along the 14th hole of Talis Park’s Greg Norman-Pete Dy designed golf course. Encompassing 10,297 square feet, this dream home epitomizes tropical Florida living by beautifully merging the essences of indoor and outdoor living.
From the curbside Caribbean appeal, this home is comprised of four bedrooms, four full baths, a formal living room, large island kitchen, study with dual-sided fireplace, wine room, upstairs game room, two radial wet bars, an outdoor kitchen and a three-car garage including a separate golf cart garage.
The entry system and motor court set the tone for an upscale, casual feeling one would expect from golf course living. A trellis-covered three-car garage flanks the entry – one side featuring a two-car garage with extra storage for bikes and other sporting equipment. The other side has a one-car garage and includes the golf cart garage with storage to host a virtual golf simulator and golfing accessories.
From the covered entry through large double doors with transoms, the foyer flows into the formal living room embellished by five picture windows overlooking the pool. The nearby wet bar features a radial ceiling design, wine chiller, ice maker, sink and five bar stools for seating. Across from the wet bar is the formal dining room complete with built-in buffet, two 6-foot windows with transoms for natural light and a unique wood beam ceiling design.
The right side of the main level is dedicated to the master suite and formal study which includes sliding glass doors for access to the covered lanai and a see-through gas fireplace. The master suite overlooks the golf course and features a morning bar, separate sitting area with ample windows and access to the covered lanai, his-and-her walk-in closets including a stackable washer/dryer combo and a beautiful vaulted ceiling design.
The master bath was designed with a spa setting in mind highlighting the oversized vanities, individual water closets, free standing tub and two sided fireplace. A glass door in the large walk-in shower provides access to a private outdoor garden shower with fountain feature.
The informal living areas of the house were designed to remain open and inviting with more than 50 feet of sliding doors that allow for the ultimate flow between the outdoor living, kitchen, dinette and family room areas, perfect for entertaining any number of guests. The family room features 180 degrees of scenic golf course views with picture windows and sliding glass doors that pocket out of view for a seamless transition to the outdoor kitchen and cabana bar.
The gourmet kitchen features a large walk-in pantry with shelving and additional cabinets and a Wolf gas cook-top flanked by windows behind glass door cabinets that allow more natural light in. A 15-foot center island, complete with double dishwashers, double sink and prep sink, are all accented by a high vaulted ceiling. A powder bath, guest room and wine room round out the downstairs features.
Upstairs are two guest rooms, each with a private bath and walk-in closet. Both rooms have plenty of windows for natural light and have access to a covered porch. The centralized game room overlooks the greens with tall picture windows and features another built-in radial wet bar. The loft space has room for a billiards table and the sliding glass doors offer access to the sun deck.
This truly is the dream home for any golfer and family that enjoys taking full advantage of the Florida lifestyle and Talis Park is the perfect community!
