Harbourside Custom Homes’ furnished Villa San Remo model is now open for viewing and purchase in Talis Park’s Seneca neighborhood. Seneca is an enclave of 43 luxury residences offering Talis Park’s “In the Park” living experience.

Wrapped by the vistas of Talis Park’s golf course, Seneca’s north and south facing lakefront home sites feature water and double or triple fairway views and are within a short walk or bike ride of Talis Park’s Vyne House Clubhouse and the Great Lawn at the community’s Grand Piazza. Priced from the high $400s to $700,000, each homesite is 190 to 200 feet deep, 77 to 100 feet wide, and will accommodate residences ranging from 3,200 to 5,000 square feet. Custom home and lot packages in Seneca are priced from $1.6 to $2.5 million. Just 14 buildable homesites remain available in Seneca.

Offered at $2.195 million fully-furnished, the 3,658-square-foot under air San Remo model features a 29-by-20-foot great room, a formal dining room, a wet bar, a double-island gourmet kitchen and breakfast nook, a study, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, an outdoor living area with a large covered terrace, gas fireplace, outdoor kitchen, pool and spa, and a three-car garage. The home’s covered entry opens to a foyer and wide gallery hallway that provide a see-though view of the great room, outdoor living area and pool, and Seneca’s views. The great room, study, and master bedroom all open to the outdoor living area. Custom ceiling details are found throughout the home.

The San Remo showcases an interior by designers Leslie Gebert, Allied Member, ASID, and Sheila Corasaniti, IDS of Vogue Interiors. Their light, simply tailored look for the San Remo is designed to reflect the home’s open and airy floor plan. The floor and wall coverings provide a foundation of soft grays, chromes, and creams with hints of citron. The flooring in the main living area is wood-look ceramic tile in a soft cream that continues into the dining room and study. A long gallery hallway just beyond the foyer features a coordinating solid porcelain tile which, in combination with widely spaced columns, defines the entry into the great room.

The San Remo’s grand entry foyer affords immediate views through the columned gallery to the great room, pool, lanai, and panoramic views beyond. To the left of the foyer, the open dining room is defined by columns. In the great room, the ceiling features a suspended painted beam detail running front to back with backlighting. The great room flows seamlessly into the kitchen with two counter-height islands that provide an integrated sense of connection. A breakfast nook with wide mitered glass windows features a square glass top table with an open wood base and seating for four. The high-ceiling, oversized study at the rear of the home includes a combination of two contrasting wallpapers, a chair rail, and high wainscoting for a warm sophisticated look.

The covered lanai showcases three distinct areas for relaxing and entertaining. The area immediately off the great room features a large conversation area that includes two curved gray sofas. The dining area includes a contemporary rectangular glass top table and six chairs in a woven gray metallic. The adjacent outdoor kitchen cabinetry is finished in espresso with a counter top in a light gray leather finish. A second conversation area is behind the study where a fireplace provides a focal point.

Entered through a private vestibule, the master bedroom showcases a color palette of black and cream. The master bathroom includes light ceramic tile, vanity cabinetry in glazed white, and countertops in white, cream and gray tones. A freestanding tub is flanked by entries into a large walk-in shower.

Seneca offers all-new designs in a palette of Spanish Eclectic, Italian Renaissance, and Colonial Caribbean architectural styles. The Seneca residences are being built by Harbourside, McGarvey Custom Homes, Fox Custom Builders and Gulfshore Homes.
