Green Mountain Builders has completed an extensive remodel and addition on a riverfront home in Bonita Bay. The transitional-inspired style makeover consists of a completely modernized outdoor living area, a new exterior, including landscaping and lighting, a second-floor guest suite addition, with balcony, and various other interior upgrades and improvements.
Tony Persichilli, owner of Green Mountain Builders, formed a team of highly qualified experts to design and build this lovely makeover. “We brought in the most creative professionals in their respective fields to work together and create a very special home for the clients,” states Persichilli.
Dan F. Sater II, FAIBD/CPBD of The Sater Group, with over thirty-five years experience in Southwest Florida, was given the task of designing the makeover. The selected style was inspired by British West Indies design. The pool and landscape concepts were created by Scott Windham, ASLA, Landscape Architect, with Windham Studio, Inc., and O’Donnell Landscapes, Inc., combining to do a beautiful job on the exterior grounds and the designer features and finishes were selected by Faith Fix, ASID, Founder and Principal of Freestyle Interiors Design Studio, as well as Viktoriya Afonova, ASID, Interior Design Consultant with From Dreams to Reality.
Outdoor Living Makeover and Addition
The 1,200 square foot cabana addition showcases the outdoor kitchen, custom decking and additional seating area, while adding under roof square footage. The outdoor kitchen is fully equipped. The tropical-inspired ceiling is adorned with exotic bamboo in a cleverly designed alternating pattern. The pool, spa and deck have been expanded and new features include an infinity edge, upper cascading fountain, gorgeous imported shell stone decking, two beautiful fire features and dramatic mood lighting.
Front Exterior and Entry
The home’s exterior went through a major makeover. The existing entry was replaced with a taller configuration and new stair design—an intricate series of integrally round and shaped steps, highlighted by an impressive imported shell stone decking. The entry’s ceiling was raised to fifteen feet. The landscaping, highlighted with native specimen plantings, creates magnificent curb appeal, while the circular drive is enhanced with brick pavers. The entire home was painted inside and out, and all existing bathrooms were updated.
Second Floor Guest Suite Addition
A beautiful, custom wood staircase leads guests to the creatively designed and beautifully decorated second-floor guest suite, providing privacy and comfort for guests and family. The lovely guest suite includes a bedroom, a comfortable, relaxing living room, bathroom and balcony overlooking the Imperial River. The bedroom and living room both enjoy access to the balcony, perfect for a morning cup of coffee, or a fabulous Southwest Florida sunset. Special attention was given to the ceilings. The balcony ceiling was painted a harmonious green, while the detailed bedroom and living room ceilings were designed to reflect the color theme.
“We were also blessed to have wonderful clients, who participated in the design and details, and were always open to exciting and creative ideas from our team. Having clients like Mr. and Mrs. Sutton who were a real joy, is what makes what we do even more gratifying,” adds Persichilli.
Many customers feel that exterior painting is a simple process and all paints and painters are created equal. Some will pick the lowest price not fully understanding the added value in a quality paint. The benefits of using quality paint for both interior and exterior jobs are many.
At Green Mountain Builders, we only use high quality Sherwin-Williams paint, achieving stunning results. They offer a wide variety of premium paints and finishes for different interior and exteriors uses. Fresh or new interior paint colors will alter the look and feel of your home. They can lighten up rooms and make them feel more spacious. Color’s not everything when selecting paint. Among the characteristics that contribute to the look, feel, texture and durability of a paint specification are gloss and sheen—a.k.a. the finish. Two new trending sheens they offer are eggshell and cashmere.
The climate and elements of Southwest Florida’s weather (fifty inches of rain annually, intense heat and high humidity) can break down paint surface. This is why we insist on Sherwin-Williams, no matter how large or small the project.
