The Athena Model at Sorrento at San Michele

The Athena model at Sorrento in San Michele by Sterling Communities, designed by The Interiors Group, is an impressive presentation of traditional elegance and Old-World opulence.

According to Senior Designer Carmen Howe, the Athena model provides a great impression of how lovely the lifestyle could be in this family-niche community.

Coffered ceilings, elaborate built-ins, expensive furnishings and accessories, Corinthian columns and a magnificent curved staircase with wrought-iron railing complement the dramatic architecture of the home to make a strong reason for moving.

This magnificent model features a bold beveled mirror over the stone fireplace in the living room, a custom kitchen with traditional cream cabinetry, a family room with Saturnia marble flooring, an elaborate built-in bookcase and an outstanding master bedroom suite on the second floor, complete with a separate sitting area and private balcony.

Another memory point in this model are the children’s rooms, designed with a nautical theme for a young son with actual portholes on the border and a built-in bed resembling a boat. The daughter’s room – done in pinks, whites and yellows -- is accented in white picket fencing on the window cornices as well as a border on the walls.

Warm taupes, rich beiges and an assortment of creams were chosen for window treatments, furnishings and wall coverings throughout the home, creating a light and sophisticated color palette in this engaging model which is almost unforgettable.
