In keeping with PDS Architecture of Fort Myers’ Spanish architectural style, the exterior of the Casa El Nido features rustic functional shutters with a dark stain, arched mahogany entry doors, dark cypress soffits and fascia, exposed trusses and large corbels. The exterior walls are finished with a sprayed granular stucco. Andersen window and doors are found throughout the home.
The interior of the Casa El Nido is designed to convey a grand, traditional sensibility with beautifully executed architectural ceiling details complimented by the use of selected modern elements, including a stainless steel and glass stairway treatment that plays against dark-toned wood treads. Lighter toned hardwood flooring is used throughout the downstairs.
Upon entry to the home, a light-filled parlour with a fireplace and French doors opening to the outside greets visitors and offers a conversation space. A formal dining room includes a large wine room. The gourmet island kitchen is designed to provide an abundance of work space and has a large pantry. The family room offers another gathering place that can be opened to the outside.
The south facing Casa El Nido’s massive outdoor living area is positioned on the view. The covered lanai features a large sitting area with a fireplace and television, a dining area, an island bar and an outdoor kitchen with a grill, refrigerator and sink. A custom designed pool is finished to convey the look of Caribbean-blue water. A raised fire pit area overlooks Talis Park’s Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed golf course and the lake.
An office off the master suite provides a private retreat removed from the home’s living areas. The master suite includes a master bedroom overlooking Casa El Nido’s views, and a master bath with a double vanity, a freestanding white tub and 24-inch white and gray Calcutta tile.
