While homebuyer interest continues to be on the upswing in Southwest Florida, a number of homeowners are discovering a new love for current spaces with London Bay Homes Renovation and Design. Projects currently underway in 2016 have more than doubled compared to total number of projects for all of 2015.

The year-over-year record growth directly correlates with London Bay Homes’ reputation as a leader in the Southwest Florida luxury home market for more than 25 years and the company’s commitment to custom building through Private Label Living.

“Many of our clients have been living in the same community and the same home or condo for quite a while,” said Renovation and Design Director David Valladarez of London Bay Homes. “A lot of them will go out and look for a new home but realize they love where they live. Their community has become part of who they are, but their lifestyle has changed and their home no longer suits their needs. They want to modernize and update.”

Terrence and Patrice Magrath’s home was built in 2000. After moving to Naples full time in 2012, they soon realized that while the footprint of the home was ideal, the design had become dated. “The home was always lovely to begin with, but over time, it needed updates and modernizing,” said Mrs. Magrath. “We had previously worked with Michael Scott of Romanza Interior Design on home design projects. Because of their relationship with London Bay Homes, we knew that for the renovations we desired, they were they only option for us.”

London Bay Homes, known for creating luxury custom homes along Southwest Florida’s coast and in new-home communities from Sarasota to Naples, also offers full-service interior and exterior renovations, additions and space-planning services.

“We are true design-led builders and are very comprehensive in our approach – from landscaping to interior design,” said Valladarez. “We offer comprehensive renovations, including landscape, interior and outdoor environment enrichment. The beautiful thing about London Bay is we offer all design and construction services under one roof, whether someone is building from the ground up or renovating. Our clients don’t have to deal with three or four consultants, contractors and specialty contractors.”

“We were delighted to have the ability to work with the contractor and the designer at the same time. They made it a seamless, coordinated process. One hand always knew what the other was doing,” added Mrs. Magrath. “London Bay also took a holistic view to renovating the house. When they saw something that needed tweaking or improving, they were willing to make the appropriate recommendations. It looks like a brand new home.”

Many of the company’s recent projects involve opening up floor plan spaces to maximize entertaining areas between the kitchen, dining room and living areas. Expanding outdoor living environments also ranks high on clients’ wish lists, Valladarez said.

“This is Florida and people spend a lot of time outside,” he added. “Many of the requests have included doubling or tripling outdoor living spaces to incorporate cabanas, summer kitchens, fireplaces and fire pits, as well as redesigning existing pools, spas and landscapes.”

London Bay Homes Renovation and Design is also seeing an upward trend in projects involving homes that the company originally built. “After finding out that London Bay Homes originally built their home, the new homebuyers are contacting our office to inquire about making enhancements to accommodate their vision and lifestyle – whether that’s adding on a bonus room or integrating new technology,” Valladarez said. “For example, people like having their lights, sound systems and TVs controlled by one remote or iPad. It makes managing their living environments easy and enhances their lifestyle.”

David Krell and his wife, Barbara, worked closed with London Bay’s staff while renovating their home in Mediterra in Naples.

“When we purchased our home, we were immediately impressed by the building quality of the execution of the home, but the floor plan did not fit our lifestyle,” said Mr. Krell. “London Bay was the original builder of the home. Because of their trusted expertise, we knew that relying on them to make the adjustments we desired to fulfill our lifestyle would provide us with the peace of mind we needed to manage the renovations from out of state.”

The Krells’ renovations included opening up the main floor plan to create a more open, lighter concept. While the previous owners focused much of the design on entertaining – including a media room and sports bar – the Krells desired more space for visiting grandchildren and hobbies. A new bedroom with full bath was added, as well as an additional powder room. Renovations to the kitchen included new cabinets, a wine room, and an island with expanded counter space.

“My wife and I had lots of ideas for what we wanted for the home,” said Mr. Krell. “David Valladarez and his team were exceptionally accommodating to our desires. They listened and executed every aspect of the home to our specifications. The bottom line is that the key to any great experience is having the right people in place. London Bay has done a great job in recruiting a good team of quality individuals that we trusted with our home.”

From complete interior and exterior makeovers and room additions, to kitchen and bath renovations and architectural and design accents, London Bay Homes Renovation and Design covers the spectrum of home-improvement services. The company’s commitment to Private Label Living ensures each project reflects the individual client and the home they envision.

London Bay Homes was one of only two companies named America’s Best Builder by Builder magazine in 2008. The company builds new luxury homes priced from $1 million to more than $10 million in many of the region’s most exclusive neighborhoods and communities. The company also builds private residences on individual homesites in the Sarasota Keys and along the Gulf of Mexico.
