Of all the wonderful reasons to buy a residence at Old Palm Golf Club, one of the most irresistible features isnât even tangible. Itâs the abundance of natural light. The interiors of the homes at Old Palm are bathed in natural light throughout because they are thoughtfully designed with a profusion of large windows and glass doors.
âBuyers absolutely love light-infused interiors,â says Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales. âYou can see it on their faces as they walk in the doors of our models. Natural light lends the interiors a sense of serenity and comfort. It makes it feel larger, more open and inviting. Knowing this, the builders at Old Palm have responded with designs that maximize natural light and are extraordinarily energy efficient. So itâs the best of both worlds.â
The use of natural light in buildings (known as âdaylightingâ) can dramatically and positively affect the aesthetics of the architecture and can benefit the residents in other ways. Research shows that natural light helps to create more positive attitudes and keeps our circadian rhythms in sync, so we sleep better and are much more alert when awake.
Still, itâs the aesthetics of a light-infused interior that make the biggest impression. Walk through any of the models at Old Palm, and you canât help but be struck by the beauty of the natural light streaming in. Master bedrooms routinely feature full walls of windows, and large panes of glass are often used to illuminate the tub area in the master baths. Windows are also prominent in the kitchens, appearing above, below and even behind the cabinetry.
Natural light is especially evident in spacious areas such as the family and living rooms. Much of that light comes from the floor-to-ceiling windows and glass sliders that allow for a natural flow between the indoors and outdoors. Nothing reflects the Florida lifestyle better than an abundance of natural light, and the builders at Old Palm have designed their models accordingly.
For instance, Courchene Development Corporationâs 5,080-square-feet-under-air Hamilton in the Isle Estates is bathed in natural light throughout. It also features four bedrooms, five full and one half bath, a Great Room and media room, all with exceptionally high ceilings that add to the spaciousness. The furnished Hamilton starts at $3,295,000.
High glass transoms and large windows are dominant features in the models by Hasey Construction, such as the Windsor in the Grand Estates. It sprawls over 5,138 square feet under air and offers four bedrooms, five full baths, one half bath, an office and club room in its light-infused Great Room design. The Windsor is priced from $2,975,000 unfurnished.
Similarly, Mustapick Estate Homes is building a variety of models, all of which make the most of natural light. Mustapickâs 4,386-square-feet-under-air Southampton in the Isle Estates has been hugely popular with its four bedrooms, four full and one half bath, and a club room. The Southampton now under construction will be fully furnished and available for $2,645,000.
âLight-filled designs have become a signature feature of Old Palm,â adds McGinnis. âWith windows seemingly everywhere in our models, they look and feel extraordinarily welcoming. Homebuyers find them hard to resist, which is why sales have been so robust, even well before the models are finished.â
