Toscana Model Blends Warm Architecture With Contemporary Style

The Toscana model at Sorrento in San Michele by Sterling Communities, designed by The Interiors Group, is a true blend of the contemporary and Old-World styles of design.

According to Senior Designer Carmen Howe, the Toscana model is an open, semi-eclectic design where the architectural styles are blended. Crystal chandeliers, formal window treatments with opulent fabrics, are combined with contemporary finishes and accessories to create a memorable model at this new estate neighborhood.

“The most dramatic setting in this courtyard home is its entrance where guests are greeted by double wrought-iron entry doors, a fountain, a swimming pool with rock waterfall and a casual outside dining area,” she noted.

Inside, the open floor plan with oversized windows provides an abundance of lighting and spectacular views. The soaring ceilings, which are coffered in the living room, dining room, master bedroom and family rooms, are enhanced by crown molding and accent paint to provide dramatic impact.

The kitchen, designed with warm cherry cabinetry, is complemented by a center work island, finished in a hand-painted antique green. “It’s as if the owner of this model found an antique and had it placed in the kitchen. We designed it as a country kitchen, to be warm and inviting.”

Other themed rooms with faux finishes include a bedroom with an underwater scene , created for a young son, and a feminine floral bedroom – designed for an older daughter.

Throughout the home, overstuffed upholstery, wood furnishings and cabinetry in dark and light finishes are complemented by textured fabrics and elegant accessories.

To visit, take I-95 to PGA Boulevard, exit west 1 mile to Central Boulevard, turn right. San Michele is 2 miles ahead on the left at the northwest corner of Central Boulevard and Hood Road. Models are open daily.

San Michele, developed by Gordon Homes and Sterling Communities, is a gated and guarded private neighborhood with only 90 estate homes, priced from $600,000s to $2 million. For more information, please call (561) 691-9100 or visit
