More than 100 members, residents and guests of Old Palm Golf Club recently enjoyed a special preview of the model homes that just opened at Isle Estates, Old Palm’s brand-new neighborhood. The enthusiastic group toured four models on adjacent third-acre home sites, each one overlooking one of the community’s largest lakes and the spectacular Raymond Floyd-designed golf course. The setting was ideal for an unforgettable introduction to Isle Estates. It was a perfectly clear night, the stars were brightly twinkling, and a cool gentle breeze blew off the lake. The conditions were so perfect, many of the models’ windows and floor-to-ceiling doors were open, allowing even more of a seamless flow between the indoors and outdoors. “These are extraordinary homes that are designed to be light and open,” says Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales. “The architecture is uniquely coastal and reminiscent of Bermuda and the British West Indies, making Isle Estates more than a new neighborhood—it’s an entirely new concept.” Hasey Construction built two of the models. The two-story 5,275-square-foot under-air Bonair offers four bedrooms and five full and two half baths in a traditional great room plan with a club room, theater and upstairs lounge. Decorators Unlimited created the interiors using light colors that imbue the space with an alluring informality. Hasey’s larger 5,540-square-foot under-air Belize is also two stories. The model features five bedrooms, six full and two half baths, a living room, family room, club room and upstairs lounge in a more traditional layout. Rogers Design Group designed the interiors to enhance the delightful coastal architecture. Courchene Development Corporation built the other two models. Named for the capital of Bermuda, the Hamilton reflects the traditional tropical style of the British-influenced island. Its one-story layout encompasses 5,080 square feet under air and features four bedrooms, five full and one half bath, a great room and club room, and a three-car garage. Insignia Design created the interiors. Courchene’s other model, the 5,129-square-foot under-air St. James, is also a one-story residence with four bedrooms, five full and two half baths, and a separate club room away from the spacious living room and family room. Inspired by the British West Indies, the St. James features a transitional interior by Insignia Design that takes advantage of the model’s abundance of natural light. To enhance the festive atmosphere, Old Palm’s members also had the opportunity to show off their golf skills on the 10th, 11th and 12th holes of the golf course. There was a chipping and putting tournament and a long drive competition with glow-in-the-dark golf balls and ball launcher. Residents Tim Haviland and Camilla Wikell triumphed in the two skills contests.
