Per the Naples Daily News, the owners of a newly-constructed 6,800-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath home in Park Shore elected to execute a Mediterranean interior design with the help from Ficarra Design Associates that is ideally suited to a lifestyle that revolves around their three children and entertaining close friends. The layout of the home includes formal living and dining rooms, a family room, study, den, two game rooms, a three-car garage, and a large covered lanai with outdoor kitchen.
“This home offers a perfect example of how a Mediterranean design can be executed in a way that is more clean lined, lighter and friendlier than the heavier Mediterranean designs of the past,” said Ficarra. “This is a home that is designed to be lived in by a large family. It’s done in a style that will stand the test of time and offers an ideal venue for creating memories with family members and friends. At the same time, it incorporates all of the casual elegance that is a hallmark of the Mediterranean design style. The large covered lanai, outdoor kitchen and the beautifully executed pool offer additional entertainment possibilities. As is the case in the coastal areas of southern Europe, the outdoor living areas take advantage of our temperate year-round climate and Gulf breezes. This is a living space to be enjoyed year-round by every member of the family.”
