The interior design for the Captiva model was inspired by the Gulf of Mexico. The look conveys a coastal feeling with modern elements and hints of rustic flair. Soft beige walls, blue and turquoise accents, and light oak hardwood flooring provide a connection to Hill Tide Estates’ spectacular beachfront setting.
A double-door entry at the top of the Captiva’s outdoor steps leads to the lower foyer that presents an open ceiling soaring to the top of the second living level. An ocean-inspired art piece is placed above an attractive light-toned credenza. In addition to the elevator, a staircase with open risers and treads finished to match the light oak flooring leads to the great room. At the top of the stairs, a wooden railing with stainless steel pickets overlooks the lower foyer.
Pocketing sliders in the Captiva’s great room open to the home’s elevated pool deck and outdoor living area.
