About the Model Home Design

new model home in Eagle Lake, FL community

When decorating the Parker model home at Eagle Hammock, our professional design team chose to combine high-end finishes with farmhouse-style furnishings and a little country flair, to suit the rural, Old Florida setting.

“In this model home, we designed it to feel like a fresh breath of air every time you enter,” said Stacey Antonakas-Perez, Design Center Manager and lead model decorator. “The home has lots of natural light and airy, open space, which we complemented with subtle colors including white, beige, and light greens.”

“And,” adds Stacey, “We selected most of the furniture from Rooms To Go because they offer attainable furnishings that give this home a lived-in feel.”

Modern, Open Living Area

The Parker’s living area is ideal for gathering and entertaining. The gathering room is large enough for everyone to lounge comfortably on the sofa and chairs, or a sectional if that’s your pref, and also fits a large entertainment center, end tables, and a coffee table – aka it’s the perfect amount of space! And, since it’s fully open to the kitchen and dining café, you’ll be part of the fun and conversation no matter which room you are in.

Speaking of the kitchen, many homeowners of the Parker tell us this is their favorite room! Not only does it include modern design and convenience with a large island, walk-in pantry, and ample recessed lighting set in the airy volume ceiling, but when you build your own Parker, you choose the features and finishes to personalize your dream kitchen!

In the new Eagle Hammock model, the designers chose 36-inch tall white shaker-style cabinets – our most popular cabinet option, and an included feature at Eagle Hammock – along with stunning Cambria solid-surface countertops, Samsung stainless steel appliances, and light-colored vinyl plank flooring.

Bedrooms Designed to Relax and Unwind

While the Parker’s open layout is ideal for entertaining, it doesn’t mean you sacrifice having private spaces for relaxing. With four bedrooms including a large and luxurious owner’s suite, there is plenty of room for everyone in your household to have their own retreat.

The owner’s suite is a winning combination of space, privacy, and luxury elements:

  • Large dimensions of 15’-4” x 15’-9”;
  • Walk-in closet with linen shelves;
  • Luxurious en-suite bath with dual vanities, a spa-like soaking tub, a decorative tiled shower with glass enclosure, and a private toilet.

Three secondary bedrooms share a convenient hall bath, and aren’t short on space or style, either. The design team worked with Core Construction to create custom-made furniture for each room. We like to decorate with furniture that is realistic for most people – a double or queen-sized bed, a bureau or dresser, and nightstands – so you can picture how your furniture might fit the space.

In this model, you’ll see secondary bedrooms designed as:

  • A room for a cowgirl with a custom-made bed featuring a distressed “picket fence” headboard;
  • A bedroom ideal for a lover of country music with rustic wood furniture, cow-print accents, and guitar wall art;
  • A home office, illustrating the flexibility to use bedrooms in your home however suits your needs, whether that’s an office, game room, guest room, fitness room, or something else entirely.

Outdoor Living Space

And when you are entertaining, the fun can easily transition from indoors to out, with the lanai accessed off your dining café.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Parker also includes a two-car garage, to house your vehicles and/or outdoor recreation toys.
