McGarvey Custom Homes’ furnished Astaire estate model is open for viewing and purchase in the Prato neighborhood at Talis Park in North Naples. With graceful estate homesites overlooking the Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways of Talis Park Golf Club’s 14th and 15th holes, lakes, preserves and citrus orchards, the Prato neighborhood offers the consummate Talis Park In the Park lifestyle. The view corridor of every Prato homesite is uninterrupted by another residence. Unfettered long range views of Talis Park’s tableau contribute to an ambiance that is reserved for just 24 estate homeowners.
The 6,820-square-foot under air, two-story Astaire floor plan includes a foyer and living room with a see-through view, a formal dining room, a grand room that includes a wet bar and flows into an island kitchen and breakfast area, a study, four bedrooms, including a first-floor master suite that features a bath with his and her vanities and water closets and a private garden with an outdoor shower, a second floor VIP suite, flex room, wet bar, and covered terrace, an outdoor living area with a summer kitchen, island bar, fireplace, pool and spa, and a pair of two-car garages. Priced at $4.695 million with furnishings, the Astaire model’s interior was designed and executed by Arlynn McDaniel of Freestyle Interiors.
McDaniel created an updated Tuscan look for the Astaire that combines clean lines with organic richness in the textures and fabrics of the upholstery and the warm tones of the woods. Downstairs, her color palette is anchored in neutral light taupes with a touch of copper, while upstairs the neutral tones are accented with ice blue and mushroom. The flooring alternates between a shell stone and dark oak. The grand room, hallways, kitchen and dining room showcase a combination design of stone and wood. The stairs feature dark oak treads with risers in shell stone, and the second story is finished in wood.
Upon entry, the Astaire’s wide foyer is adorned with artwork as the eye is drawn through the living room to the pool area beyond. The conversation grouping of refined chairs in a light chenille and settee benches in modified animal print leather is focused on the view. A feature wall to the left displays a fireplace in stone and stained wood flanked by accent chests with hanging pendants suspended above. On the opposite wall, a large open pass-through with substantial base cabinetry and shelving connects to the wet bar in the adjacent grand room.
The formal dining room connects seamlessly with the grand room and kitchen to create an open atmosphere. An extendable table in a warm stained wood is paired with eight chairs and an oversized buffet. A large window provides views of the landscaping at the front of the home. This room also features intricate ceiling details, artwork, and a built-in Sub-Zero wine chiller.
The grand room features a clean-lined console with a television mounted above and a seating arrangement. The walls are adorned with a mica chip wallpaper in tones of taupe and copper that complements the darker woods of the wet bar with its quartz counter tops and bar stools. The grand room’s space is open and airy with pocketing sliders that allow the boundaries between inside and outside to completely fade away.
A striking feature in the Astaire’s kitchen is the island. With base cabinetry in a warm stained green/brown wood and a light quartz counter top for contrast, McDaniel has designed a modern rectangular floating glass bar top treatment supported by wood posts that offers seating and runs perpendicular to the island to create a truly unique look. The cream painted perimeter cabinetry with a glazed rub finish is complemented by a tile backsplash. The adjacent breakfast nook, which opens to a garden area, showcases bamboo style furniture.
