Waterside Builders, Inc. , a custom luxury home builder in Naples, Florida, announced the start of construction of a new home in Coquina Sands. Architecturally befitting the signature style of renowned architecture firm, MHK Architecture & Planning, the home is located at 1405 Mandarin Road with fully custom interior finishes and furnishings by Diana Horsley Design and custom landscape design by Koby Kirwin of Residential Landscape Architecture.
“Coquina Sands is one of the original neighborhoods in Naples and features spacious home locations within walking distance of the beach,” commented Mike Asaad, owner of Waterside Builders. “This new home is ideally positioned on a corner, taking advantage of a generous, spacious elevation and separate garages.”
Designed by MHK Architecture & Planning with interiors by Diana Horsley of Diana Horsley Design, the home’s interiors are the epitome of timeless elegance. Diana Horsley adds: “The interiors are cozy and inviting, with an open layout and show kitchen.” “There are many breathtaking moments in the house including the floating staircase and the fireplace. Our main goal behind this design was to incorporate natural elements while maintaining an overall classic and elegant aesthetic.”
The 6,889-square-foot home immediately welcomes guests into an open concept living room on the first floor with expansive views of the loggia and dramatic pool views beyond. Natural elements are discovered throughout the home in its floors, ocean fireplace, stair, and ceiling beams. Flood the room in neutral hues with cuts of dark woods and dramatic details, a tone of understated sophistication. The spacious kitchen island, seating up to eight, is center stage in the perfect display space for entertaining large groups or small home-cooked meals. A mix of dark and light cabinetry paired with copper accents and bare shelves creates a truly unique space. Wolf and Miele appliances ensure the best culinary experience while a hidden service kitchen or butler pantry hosts extra storage as well as providing a private space for entertaining pre and post party tasks.
The Basic Suite, with its signature loggia and two-door entrance, provides an exclusive retreat. The homeowners enter the suite, dotted with natural light from the triple lobby windows. The master bathroom is centered between two dressing rooms, each with a central island of cabinetry surrounded by custom wardrobe spaces. The dramatic entry into the bathroom showcases a stand-alone bathtub, separate shower, two vanities, two water tanks, and a unique marble “area rug” framed by natural river shells. Cabinets in crisp, traditional white pair with satin brass fixtures, Calcutta tile, and luminous details to create an ethereal and serene space.
Additional first floor space includes the living room, dining room, and outdoor kitchen with outdoor Lynx and Uline appliances. Havana silver textured backsplash tiles contrast with Raven Ash exterior cabinets creating a rich, custom design for the outdoor kitchen. Outside the outdoor entertaining space, there is a staircase that leads to a private guest cabin on the second floor with a bedroom, bathroom and balcony, suitable for guests who want complete seclusion from the main house.
The spacious pool and lawn area showcases an elongated pool with oversized and spacious sundeck for four in the water, heated spa and dramatic fountain backdrop. The wrap-around lawn provides additional green space that extends beyond the pool.
Upstairs, guests are welcomed by a bonus room with a wet bar and sliding door entrance to the second floor outdoor balcony. Four guest suites, complete with private bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes, provide the perfect accommodations for a night or a month. The neutral palette continues upstairs with light oak floors, natural cabinet stains, and cream wall paint colors.
