Meet yet another of our stunning beach homes here at Bayside: the Sanibel! This stunning single family home by Schell Brothers boasts a spacious dual-level floor plan, with 3+ bedrooms, 4.5+ baths, a 3-car garage and 4,600+ square feet of space.
According to a recent article by Green Home Builder Magazine, “The nominated Sanibel floor plan is an excellent representation of Schell Brothers’ innovative designs that appeal to the way current homebuyers choose to live today.” With their unmatched attention to detail, it should come as no surprise that this stunning single family home was recently recognized by The Nationals for Best Architectural Design of a Single-Family Detached Home (Priced $500s to $750s)!
Christina Harvey, senior marketing manager at Schell Brothers recently commented that, “it seems that The Nationals judges select designs that are unique, stand-out, and satisfy a builder’s target market—The Sanibel is all of that”.
In addition to its spacious, open floor plan, the Sanibel’s design itself is rather unique—due to its reversible floor plan, functional layout, refreshing outdoor living spaces, distinct exterior elevation options, and truly iconic features and finishes.
So what sets Schell Brothers apart from the rest? Green Home Builder Magazine explains: “Schell Brothers has managed to differentiate themselves in the homebuilding industry by implementing their culture into their communities and business. Their culture is incredibly simplistic: happiness. Whether they’re collectively enjoying sunny beach days over barbeques or paying it forward in community service programs and charity events, they strive to incorporate happiness into their business model—and it has proven to be quite successful.”
The aforementioned article by Green Home Builder Magazine explained that the Sanibel, “is one of the first designs that took a layout that was selling extremely well as a single-level living plan and reversed the plan to move the main living spaces,” said Harvey. The single-level layout was moved to the second floor for better views of the community’s Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed golf course and waterways; the ground level accommodates living spaces and is perfectly suited for guest rooms.”
The amount of natural light cascading into each and every room of the Sanibel, also known as slight lines, was yet another essential component to the design of the Sanibel. To accomplish this goal, home designer Chris Schell incorporated large picture-frame windows into the Sanibel’s dining room and great room, in addition to adding a number of roofline windows and vaulted ceilings to increase the home’s distinct vibrancy and refreshing coastal feel.
