Waterside Builders, Inc., a luxury custom home builder in Naples, Florida, announces the construction commencement of a new home in Coquina Sands. Architectural design befitting the signature style of renowned architectural firm, MHK Architecture & Planning, the home is located at 1405 Mandarin Road with fully customized interior finishes and furnishings from Diana Horsley Design and custom landscape design by Koby Kirwin of Residential Landscape Architecture.

“Coquina Sands is one of Naples’ original neighborhoods and features spacious home sites within walking distance to the beach,” comments Mike Assaad, owner of Waterside Builders. “This new home is ideally positioned on a corner lot, taking advantage of an expansive, wide elevation and separated garages.”

Designed by MHK Architecture & Planning with interiors by Diana Horsley of Diana Horsley Design, the home’s Interiors are the epitome of timeless elegance. “The interiors are comfortable and inviting, with an open layout and showstopping kitchen,” adds Diana Horsley. “There are several breathtaking moments in the home including the floating staircase and statement fireplace. Our main goal behind this design was to incorporate natural elements while maintaining an overall classic and chic aesthetic.”

The 6889 square-foot under-air home immediately welcomes guests into a first-floor open concept living room with broad views out to the loggia and dramatic poolscape beyond. Natural elements are discovered throughout the home in its flooring, fireplace surround, staircase, and ceiling beams. Bathed in creamy neutrals with punches of dark woods and dramatic details, the great room sets a tone of simple, unfussy sophistication. The spacious kitchen island with seating for up to eight, claims center stage in the showstopping space ideal for large group entertaining or smaller home-prepared meals. A mix of dark and light cabinetry paired with brass accents and exposed shelving create a truly unique space. Wolf and Miele appliances ensure the best culinary experience while the hidden service kitchen, or butler’s pantry, hosts additional storage as well as providing a private space for entertaining pre- and post-party tasks.

The primary suite, with distinct hallway and double-door entry, offers an exclusive retreat. Homeowners enter the suite dotted with natural light from the trio of hallway windows. The primary bath is centered between the two dressing rooms, each with a center cabinetry island encircled by custom closet spaces. The dramatic entry into the bath showcases a stand-alone bathtub, separate shower, two vanities, two water closets and unique marble “area rug” trimmed in natural river shell border. Cabinetry in crisp, traditional white pairs with satin brass fixtures, Calcutta tile, and luminescent details to create an ethereal, peaceful space.

Additional first-floor space includes the outdoor living, dining and kitchen complete with Lynx and Uline outdoor appliances. A Havana Silver ornate backsplash tile contrasts with the Raven Ash-colored outdoor cabinetry creating a rich, custom outdoor kitchen design. Just off the outdoor entertaining space is a stairway leading to a second-floor private guest cabana with bedroom, bath, and balcony, suitable for guests who desire complete solitude from the main house.

The spacious pool and lawn area showcases an elongated pool with oversized sun shelf spacious for four in-water lounges, heated spa, and dramatic fountain backdrop. A wrap-around grass lawn offers additional green space extending the view beyond the pool.

Upstairs, guests are greeted by the bonus room with wet bar and sliding door entry to the outdoor second-floor balcony. Four guest suites, complete with private baths and walk-in closets, offer the ultimate accommodations for an overnight or month-long stay. The neutral palette is continued upstairs with light oak flooring, natural cabinet stains, and creamy wall paint colors.
