Dream Homes

A model of coastal contemporary; a Gulf Shore Boulevard remodel with room to spare; and a sophisticated residential bar.

Gold Standard The first day this MHK Architecture and Planning-designed home, on 770 Park Street in downtown Naples, went live, Debi McInnis, the listing agent with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, received three offers and had nine showings. “When people walked in, they said, ‘Whoa, I never would have expected all this on the inside,’” she says. The open-concept living area, with 26-foot ceilings and a loft, was furnished by Clive Daniel Home. Windows placed high on the walls allow natural light to flood in, and to further brighten things, a solid Carrara marble media wall frames the television and one of the home’s two fireplaces. Behind it, earth-tone wallpaper with a subtle sparkle gives the room an enchanting shimmer at sunset. The seller, writer Lori Fornia-Fleming, carried marble through the kitchen, adding a four-inch slab on the oversized island. White Shaker-style cabinets by Ruffino Cabinetry keep the space looking crisp, while the recessed ceiling is inset with European oak planks to add warmth. Artistic pendant lights illuminate the island, and Wolf appliances and a Sub-Zero wine cooler make for a “chef’s delight,” McInnis says. European oak flooring spans the home, including the three bedrooms with en-suite baths and the loft upstairs, as well as the primary bedroom on the first floor.
