By April 10, 2015 Press

2014-04-09-16_DIAConstruction has reached 50 percent on a new custom, private residence built by luxury homebuilder Diamond Custom Homes in Quail West. Construction is expected to be complete by Fall 2015.

The West Indies-style home, designed by architect Richard Guzman of RG Designs, will include four bedrooms plus study, five baths and two half baths. Featuring golf to lake views, the home will include 5,625 square feet under air, 8,718 total square feet. An oversized, covered lanai will feature roll down screens and shutters, and will be complete with sports bar and outdoor kitchen. A magnificent, resort-style pool with gas fire bowls will be a focal point of the outdoor area, along with a beautiful cypress wood pergola. Inside, special features include a wine room, a sunken bar in the living room and a breakfast bar with 12-foot tall mitered glass windows.

Also included is a four-car garage with porte-cochere, as well as a professional landscape design by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design. Sherri DuPont and Jody Keene, of Collins & DuPont Design Group, will be responsible for the interior design of the residence.

Typical of all homes constructed by Diamond, the residence will be built using the best construction practices that building science has to offer to ensure the residence is ideally suited to the Southwest Florida environment. This includes all block construction with poured arches—no wood will be on the exterior of the home with the exception of timber beams at the main entry.

Additionally, the residence will feature advanced building technologies such as Andersen casement windows with upgraded water proofing details; and Icynene insulation along with a high efficiency HVAC system to enhance the energy efficiency of the home.
