The Magnolia, Diamond Custom Homes’ luxury estate home model overlooking the second fairway of Quail West’s Lakes course, has been sold according to Michael Diamond, founder and CEO of the Naples-based custom homebuilder.
Listed at $3.695 million fully-furnished, the two-story Magnolia model showcases a West Indies architectural design by John Cooney, AIA, president and owner of Stofft Cooney Architects, with interior design by Lou Shafran, principal designer/CEO of Pacifica Interior Designs, and architectural landscape designs by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design.
“Our custom home-building company was created in 2010. To date, we have built 21 homes in Quail West and currently have six additional homes in various phases of construction,” said Diamond.
The two-story Magnolia model is a nod to classic, southern low-country architecture with its clean white exteriors, oversized porch and pillared entrance. The model features four bedrooms, four 4.5 baths with 5,541 square feet under air and 8,063 square feet under roof, including a three-car side-entry garage, plus additional space for golf cart storage.
The Magnolia is a collision of southern charm and elegance and sophistication and modern amenities. The Magnolia blends modern features including a media room, bar with wine storage, Pompeii quartz counter tops and a custom made parsons table crafted from recycled glass with traditional touches of custom distressed hickory wood floors and bold, detailed wood work throughout the home, floor to ceiling pocketing sliders opening to the outdoor living area with custom pool and spa.
The open-concept first floor plan includes a great room, complete with 10-foot tongue-and-groove ceilings accentuated by wooden beams. Unique and exquisite features include a full wet bar with wine refrigeration, a professional grade coffee lounge with Miele dual coffee/espresso machine, custom-built cabinetry, a dining area, gourmet island kitchen and a lounge area. The great room and lounge both open to an outdoor living area with a year-round kitchen, a covered loggia off the great room, and a pool deck with a fire pit.
The master suite and a VIP suite are on the first floor. The master suite features expansive his and her walk-in closets and includes a personal study. The bathroom opens up with natural stone flooring and features separate his and her vanities, a freestanding tub and an oversized shower.
Upstairs includes a library, two guest bedrooms en suite with walk-in closes, and additional space with a television viewing area and billiards room, both of which open to outdoor terraces.
Interior designer Shafran chose airy and timeless pieces. With natural light spilling into every room, including the hallways, the harmony of blues, grays and natural colors illuminate the home. An eclectic mix of accent pieces including silver lamps, wood tables, heavy linen and breezy silhouette draperies, are sprinkled throughout the home.
Outdoors is a custom designed pool by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Designs as well as a fire pit with ample seating. Other property features include a library, covered lanai and a three-car garage with an added golf cart garage.
Shafran’s vision of blending elements of traditional Southern charm with transitional clean design was realized in the Magnolia estate model. With flooring in hand-planed dark espresso wood and a color palette of crisp whites, pale olive gray and deep royal blue, the designer created a truly glamorous ambiance.
Diamond believes clients have a number of advantages when they select his company to build their dream home.
With the Magnolia sold and six new homes in various phases of construction in Quail West, Diamond plans to start a new Ladera model on Williston Way Spring, offering both golf course and lake views,” Diamond said.
