Driftwood finishes, combinations of gray and white, and painted beadboard and tongue-and-groove accent walls lend an upscale river-meets-seaside ambience to the new three-bedroom, two-bath Correggio model home in Tidewater Preserve.
The single-family Classic Series home is now open for viewing in WCI Communities’ premier boating community, located along two miles of the Manatee River in Bradenton.
The model features interior design by Kay Green Design, which blends painted black furniture with woven and driftwood elements in a primary palette of fresh whites and soft grays accented with celadon, storm gray and hints of canary yellow.
The Correggio, one of five Classic home designs at Tidewater Preserve, offers a formal dining room, den, great room and breakfast nook.
The home offers 2,434 square feet of living space and a popular open plan combining great room, nook, kitchen and dining room into a large space for entertaining.
A trio of arches in the foyer and dining room frame views into the great room and adjoining spaces. The dining room’s 13-foot tray ceiling is accented with two levels of crown molding and a chrome chandelier. The room’s main wall is painted a soft gray and complemented by an antiqued mirror. Rustic guest chairs and linen host chairs accented with silver nailhead trim surround the rectangular wood table.
The Correggio features light gray wood flooring in main living areas, including the den, which is positioned off of the foyer. A woven seagrass ottoman, louvered chests with a weathered finish, and white beadboard accented walls give the den a seaside feel. The room also offers a desk, and its ceiling combines the main wall’s combination of white beadboard and celadon paint.
The great room’s ceiling is accented with white painted beams and a celadon-painted surface. Sliding glass doors in the great room and windows in the nook showcase the model’s pool and its views.
The room’s white upholstered sofa and armchair contrast with an ebony coffee table and woven chair. Weathered end tables provide a rustic touch, and pillows, an area rug and window treatments introduce celadon, stormy gray and soft gray tones.
The kitchen continues the light and dark contrast with java-finished cabinetry paired with gray-veined white granite countertops and brighter celadon painted walls. The backsplash’s mix of glass tiles and travertine in white and shades of gray complement the palette.
The kitchen also offers stainless steel appliances, a freestanding island breakfast bar and closet pantry.
The owner’s suite pairs white and gray with a black paneled wood bed. Window treatments, bedding and the cushions of a gray woven armchair are all fresh white. The bedwall’s tongue-and-groove surface is painted a soft gray, and its ceiling features a combination of gray paint and white millwork. The sea is referenced in the capiz shell chandelier above the bed.
The Correggio’s owner’s suite offers his-and-her walk-in closets. Its private bathroom features gray tile flooring that’s repeated on the surface and deck of the garden tub. The bath also offers a separate shower and his-and-her vanities, including one with a dressing table.
One of the two guest rooms has a walk-in closet and features an upholstered dark-gray headboard contrasted with white-on-white bedding. Pillow and window treatment fabrics introduce additional shades of gray plus brighter greens and sunshine yellows in stripes, florals and graphic patterns.
The other guest room is playful with wide vertical painted stripes in yellow, citrus green and gray, and a yellow-and-gray painted chest between its twin beds. Pillows and seaside-themed artwork introduce shades of pink.
The Correggio offers a front porch and a two-car garage and encompasses 3,406 total square feet, including a storage closet that can be used as a pool bath.
The Correggio is one of 16 home plans available at Tidewater Preserve. WCI also offers Carriage homes, Grand Villas and Riverfront Estate homes starting from the $230,000s and featuring two to four bedrooms and 1,710 to 3,845 square feet of living space.
Five additional model homes are open for viewing. WCI also is offering several quick-delivery homes at Tidewater Preserve for immediate to near-immediate occupancy.
