WCI Communities has completed two maintenance-free Carriage model homes at Venetian Golf & River Club, its 1,039-acre master-planned community along the Myakka River in Venice.


The Corsica and Monaco models, located in the Capello neighborhood, showcase WCI’s three-bedroom, two-bath Carriage home floor plans at Venetian.


Open for viewing seven days a week, the homes feature coastal design and fresh colors by CJ Décor and overlook a picturesque nature preserve.


Both floor plans are designed around a great room to emphasize openness with adjoining kitchens, cafes and dining areas – spaces that also connect to covered lanais through sliding glass doors.


Carriage home kitchens feature center islands/breakfast bars and corner walk-in pantries. Owner’s suites have large walk-in closets, sliding glass doors to lanais, and bathrooms with glass-enclosed showers, private water closets, and vanities with his-and-her sinks.


Each home has an attached two-car garage.


The first-floor Corsica is shown with 20-by-20-inch stone-hued avorio tile throughout most of its 1,710 square feet of living space. Tray ceilings in the entry, dining room and great room are accented with crown molding.


The kitchen features chiffon-finished cabinetry, Carolina summer granite countertops and an ivory tumbled mosaic backsplash. Its stainless steel Whirlpool appliances include a French-door refrigerator.


The owner’s suite has a tray ceiling, and its bathroom’s chiffon cabinetry is complemented by white-gray Botticino Verona Stone countertops and biscuit-toned under-mounted porcelain sinks. The walk-in shower has a bench, and its avorio tile walls are embellished with a polished marble listello.


The same countertops and shower treatments are repeated in the second bath.


The Corsica home starts at $215,990.


The second-floor Monaco offers a private elevator and staircase and has 2,376 square feet of living space. The model features 18-by-18-inch bias-installed taupe tile throughout main rooms and a hickory wood floor in the retreat. Ceilings are accented with crown molding, and the great room offers home theater capabilities.


Kitchen cabinetry features a rich dark Kona finish contrasting with pearl-toned granite countertops and a mosaic backsplash. The model is shown with stainless steel appliances.


The owner’s bath has a chiffon-stained vanity topped by Verona Stone’s marble-based stone in perlato royal, a combination of whites and beiges. The shower features a heavy-glass enclosure, and a decorative listello accents the taupe wall tiles.


The dark Kona cabinetry is also used in the Monaco’s second bath and in the laundry room, where it’s paired with a quartz countertop.


Both models are shown with a Cabrio washer and gas dryer as well as finishes available through the new design studio in Venetian’s sales center. The studio offers a comprehensive selection of cabinetry, countertops, bath and kitchen fixtures, tile and flooring for owners to personalize their homes.


The Monaco starts at $271,990.


In addition to Carriage homes, Venetian Golf & River Club also offers eight Grand Villa and Classic Series single-family homes with two and three bedrooms and floor plans ranging from 1,756 to 2,986 square feet of living space. Select plans offer dens, dining rooms and versatile flex rooms.


WCI Communities has created Venetian Golf & River Club with an array of amenities, including an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Chip Powell and a 20,000-square-foot Golf Club, where members can enjoy fine and casual dining and a full calendar of events.


The Venetian River Club features dining with a view of the 70-acre Nature Park, as well as a fitness center and aerobics studio, spa rooms, lap pool, resort-style pool with cabana bar and six-court Har-Tru tennis center. The Nature Park includes the River Walk boardwalk and picnic gazebo.


Venetian Golf & River Club is located within minutes of downtown Venice and the area’s renowned Gulf of Mexico beaches. Nearby, Sarasota offers numerous performing arts centers, as well as shopping and dining at St. Armands Circle. 


Venetian Golf & River Club offers new homes in Venice, Fla., starting from the low-$200,000s.
