Contemporary furniture rendered in durable coastal finishes has come to define the American transitional design ethos that inspired the new West Indian decorator model. Montserrat Grand Coach Home Phase 2 is the community’s largest floor plan at 54 acres and 212 units. At 2,444 square feet under the air and including an attached 2-car garage, its large rooms, high ceilings and wide glass windows and doors give it the presence of a single-family home, an effect further enhanced by expansive views from its location on the top floor. Pricing for Montserrat Grand Coach Home starts in the $600,000 range and offers water and conservation orientations.
Montserrat’s gracious ground floor entrance adds to the home’s sense of privacy. The new model uses room decor to introduce its subtle palette and sensibility to textured design. Beautifully detailed wide profile wood plank porcelain tile finished in soft gray sets a refined tone throughout the residence. In the entry room, it’s layered over a patterned rug in the same tonal variations for an understated yet sophisticated presentation. Its wide entry hutch adds as much multifunctional storage as it does wall-to-wall textural interest. Complete with ever-classic blue and white accent pieces, it showcases understated, upscale styling in today’s contemporary finishes.
Montserrat’s Loft is also perfect for showcasing function as well as style, with a quiet seating area that can be transformed into a separate sleeping space as easily as unfolding its on-trend loveseat bed. The 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Montserrat offers plenty of family or guest accommodation, but includes additional capability without losing any of its intended functionality, a hallmark of good design. As for the guests, it should be noted here that JMD Development has added 2 Guest Suites to its list of amenities. They are available to all owners and their guests for short stays a few times a year.
Montserrat’s great room includes its kitchen, living room and dining room, all of which face its oversized and screened in Lanai and viewed through 2 wide sets of triple sliding doors. The model’s high ceilings are accented on the living room side by an oversized coved ceiling defined by deep crown molding and backlit for dramatic effect. Its furniture draws its design theme from a dramatic rug with a bold sand and tropical sea-colored pattern that echoes in the swirling pattern of the dining room’s chrome and glass chandelier. Deep, textured wood finishes and a striking wall vessel increase the design interest of the area.
The adjacent kitchen features Grand Coach Home’s signature cook’s kitchen with an extra long center island topped with a deep white quartz curved edge countertop. The island is set far enough away from the perimeter cabinetry and cooking area for easy travel and comfortable family-style meal preparation. Its beautiful counter stools introduce modern neo-Danish wood/leather/metal styling points into the kitchen. Two wide walls of gray wood cabinetry are highlighted by a wonderfully reflective herringbone backsplash of matte and glossy tiles that is reflected in an oversized sky blue design element across the room. A full pantry with wooden shelving system designed to improve air circulation completes the kitchen.
During the morning hours in particular, when the model’s eastern exposure floods the large room with sunlight, the many shiny metallic finishes of the accessories and furnishings catch and reflect the light as it moves through the room. , animating every detail. The large room backdrop of tonal colors is complemented by its varied and bright accents. It is a well-designed template with a sophisticated layout.
Phase 2 classic residences are also under construction. These are smaller 4-unit residences priced from $400,000. The new designer model currently being fitted out for his first-floor Saba unit features a revised layout of the classic Coach House kitchen that moves the phase one pantry to a side wall, opening up dramatically its great room footprint without expanding the floor plan. The Saba is a 3 bedroom floor plan and features 1,537 square feet under air. It offers direct garage access and all classic homes include individual single-car garages and screened-in porches. Although the Phase 2 Saba model is still being decorated, it can be seen when accompanied by an on-site agent.

It features taller ceilings and cove detailing in its peninsula-style kitchen, along with the aforementioned relocated pantry. Its top floor views in particular are wide open in all directions. The Tobago echoes Saba’s floor plan and is laid out in a split bedroom format, with the master suite located across from the residence from the other bedrooms.
