St. Augustine, Fla. (Vocus) August 6, 2010
Laterra Links in King & Bear at World Golf Village and Rita Williams of Merchandising Plus have been honored with two prestigious awards, a Laurel Award and an Aurora Award, for the stunning Pebble Beach coach home. The home was honored with a Laurel Award presented by the Northeast Florida Builders Association Sales and Marketing Council for Best Interior Merchandising of an Attached Home in the $ 440,000 to $ 484,000 category. The home also received an Aurora Award at the 2010 Southeast Building Conference/Green Building Show for Best Interior Design of an Attached Home for Sale in the $ 300,000 to $ 500,000 category.
“We are delighted to receive this highly regarded industry recognition,” said Pamela Anastasia, vice president of Homes by Deltona, a division of Deltona Corp., the developer of Laterra Links. “The Pebble Beach floor plan offers outstanding features and has been one of the most popular among our homebuyers. In fact, the home design has previously won two Aurora Awards for Designs of Distinction. While the footprint remains the same, the floor plan continues to evolve to meet today’s leading home design trends.”
The second floor Pebble Beach design has been a popular choice among second home buyers and empty nesters because it offers open spacious areas for relaxation and entertaining family and friends. Designed by Merchandising Plus in shades of sundown yellow, coral and ocean teal, the home exudes coastal ambience. The home’s vaulted ceilings and skylights allow natural light to fill the home. The entry foyer and niche stairway flows into the grand dining room and gathering living room, where a screened lanai with sliding glass pocket doors instantly brings in the magnificent golf course views. The romantic master suite, designed with Mediterranean-style furnishings and an expansive bay window cove seating area, also reaches out to an amazing view. A secondary master guest suite features a flexible design with a king bed, media center, sleeping sofa seating area, computer work station and bath. The third guest suite and bath is designed with resort styling. The Pebble Beach, like every home at Laterra Links, features a private entrance and two-car garage.
“This grand coach home features a functional and fabulous floor plan offering grand entertainment areas perfect for large families and friends,” said Rita Williams, president of Merchandising Plus. “Its thoughtfully designed flexible spaces function beautifully.”
The stunning Pebble Beach design caught the eyes of homebuyers Doyle and Becky Young. The couple is thrilled to be living in an award-winning home at Laterra Links.
“We are so pleased with our beautiful home and loved working with the accommodating teams at Laterra Links and Merchandising Plus,” said Doyle Young. “The home is perfect for us and provides plenty of space to entertain and vacation with our family. And when we are not at home, we are just minutes from all the things we enjoy about the St. Augustine area including golf, the beach and the history of the city.”
