The New Azure Model at the Villas at the Residences at Mercato Nears Completion

March 8, 2016

The Lutgert Companies announces that the new Azure model at the Villas at the Residences at Mercato is near completion. Developed by The Lutgert Companies and built by Lutgert Construction, LLC, Residences at Mercato is the most in-demand Naples address. The exclusive enclave features 19 villas, offering two distinctive model options. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath Azure model encompasses 2,697 square feet under air. Designed by Clive Daniel’s Jean Losier with transitional and global influences, this villa will also have a cabana option. “The architecture of the Azure lends itself to an open, lofty feel,” said Losier. “The fireplace has been built all the way up to the second story, so we created some floating themes from the second floor ceiling.” The Azure’s gourmet kitchen has been crafted with warm tones that complement the space itself. “We chose lighter painted cabinets with a bit of glazing,” Losier explained. “The cabinet door style is a very clean, craftsman look with some glass elements. We used smoky color glass tile in the backsplash area, which brings out the glazing in the cabinetry.” Outside, the cabana’s architectural details include a beamed ceiling and porcelain tile. “The flooring is porcelain that is wood-like tile,” said the designer. “It is family friendly, has a sandy feel and looks like wood with its size and texture. This helps transition the indoor and outdoor areas — you just peel back the sliding doors and the two spaces become one.” In addition to the villas, Residences at Mercato features 33 single-family homes, each spaciously designed to emphasize privacy and outdoor living. The development represents what is quickly defining urban living’s next era, refining what comprises luxury and convenience by fusing work, life and play into one location. Its wide-demographic buyer profile includes young professionals and retired CEOs, as well as international clients who purchase a residence as a second or vacation home.
