NAPLES, Fla. (May 10, 2016) – Diamond Custom Homes celebrates the completion of The Magnolia, its most recent custom estate residence in Quail West. In grand southern style complete with traditional southern fare, guests, Quail West residents, realtors and homebuyers, experienced an evening of southern charm and hospitality at the grand opening soiree held on Thursday, April 28.

More than 200 guests enjoyed a plethora of pallet pleasing southern hors d’oeuvres including corn fritters, crab cake hush puppies and fried mac and chees bites, as well as traditional southern beverages including sweet tea, watermelon-infused water and Sweet Peach Bourbon with Lemonade. Artichoke and Company of Bonita Beach provided the evening’s delightful treats.

The Magnolia is Diamond Custom Homes’ newest estate model in Quail West. From the West Indies architecture to the aqua glass tile pool and spa, this stunning home is sure to please the most discriminating customer.

“The Magnolia is the perfect marriage of charm, class and sophistication,” said Michael Diamond, president of Diamond Custom Homes.” We are pleased with the evening’s attendance and interest in The Magnolia. We pride ourselves on building individual and unique homes and our guests seem to agree,” he said.

Priced at $3,745,000, the fully furnished Magnolia model features architectural designs by John Cooney of Stofft Cooney Architects, Interior designs of Lou Shafran of Pacifica Interior Designs and architectural landscape designs by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design. Reminiscent of a treasured time gone by with its oversized porch and elegant columns framing the entrance, guests are greeted by a spectacular collision of southern charm and elegance and sophistication and modern amenities. Designed for today’s fast-paced lifestyle, the Magnolia harmoniously blends modern features including media room, bar with wine storage, functional 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 Magnolia model features four bedrooms, four full baths and one half bath and a three car plus golf cart garage.

Inspired by timeless southern elegance, Shafran added airy and timeless pieces, designed to last for years. With natural light spilling into every room, including the hallways, the harmony of blues, greys and natural colors illuminate the home giving it a bright and warm glow. An eclectic mix of accent pieces including silver lamps, wood tables, heavy linen and breezy silhouette draperies, are sprinkled throughout the home, dazzling the eye in every room.

“The inspiration is one of simple elegance,” said Lou Shafran, Owner of Pacifica Interior Designs. “I wanted this home to feel livable for many years to come. In other words, timeless,” she said.

Shafran must have touched upon something. Roger Podany, a Quail West resident agrees. “Diamond built our home here in Quail West,” he said. “We would buy another house from Mike in a heartbeat. He has outdone himself with this home.”

As the 7:00 hour approached, there were no signs of a dwindling crowd – further testament to the welcome feel of Diamond Custom Homes’s newest model home.
