The stars were out in full force for the latest broker event at Old Palm Golf Club. It was a clear starry night for the festivities — themed “Dancing with the Real Estate Stars” — and the two models that the more than 250 of the area’s top real estate professionals toured were absolutely stellar. Courchene Development Corporation built both beautiful homes on adjacent lots on Calla Lilly Court in Old Palm’s elegant Grand Estates neighborhood. The 5,837-square-foot Bentley features four bedrooms, five full and two half baths, a wonderfully intimate den, and a spectacular tiered theater with electric reclining seats. Another unusual feature is the home’s glass-walled wine gallery situated between the living and dining rooms. The Bentley’s floor plan is grand and open and flows effortlessly into the outdoors, where several brokers showed off their best ballroom dance steps à la “Dancing with the Stars.” The judges gave them a well-deserved “10” and the audience followed with a round of enthusiastic applause before participating in an entertaining group salsa dance lesson. Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales at Old Plam, remarked, “Considering the smiles all around, you can see the market has changed and sales are strong. Old Palm gained several new residents in January alone, all of them brought to us by participating brokers.” The brokers also toured Courchene’s extraordinary, two-story Royalton model. At 6,855 square feet, it’s somewhat larger than the Bentley, with the additional space thoughtfully accommodating five bedrooms, six full and two half baths, a den, game room and loft. Both models share a soothing color scheme and sophisticated transitional furnishings by Insignia Design Group, Courchene’s in-house interior design company. The outdoors is just as serene, as the two homes overlook private water features, lighted at night to showcase the waterfalls. The large covered loggia in the Royalton is particularly inviting, as it features a gas fireplace and outdoor bar. One of its most distinctive elements is the continuous ceiling beam that runs from the kitchen and family room through the loggia. By visually connecting the indoors and outdoors, it makes the home feel even more spacious. The Royalton can be built starting at $2,623,000; the Bentley from $2,323,000. See Photos on Facebook
