The Great Reveal

The Heritage – A VIE Legacy Show Home

Photos by Chandler Williams, Modus Photography

A labor of love and hard work over two years in the making, The Heritage – A VIE Legacy Show Home is truly a one-of-a-kind residence that presents its future owners with boundless opportunities for making memories on the Gulf of Mexico. Located conveniently in the private enclave of Heritage Dunes, a gated beachside community in Seagrove Beach, Florida, this 4,871-square-foot masterpiece is the first of nine custom houses to be developed in the neighborhood by Bella Mare Real Estate Holdings. Owners and developers Carl and Tamara Tricoli fell in love with the white sands and beautiful architecture along Scenic Highway 30-A many years ago and bought a Gulf-front home there around 2010. When starting their development business, they chose Heritage Dunes for its gorgeous natural surroundings, the central location just off 30-A, and its sense of serenity as an exclusive, nonrental retreat with private beach access and a community pool. It is our pleasure to present this architectural beauty and a behind-the-scenes look at its creation throughout the pages of this special edition of VIE.

One with Nature

Principal architect Gerald Burwell of Burwell Associates, designer of The Heritage show home and the eight following homes, describes the debut residence as “inclusive.” Its inviting south-facing entry welcomes visitors with a beautiful plunge pool and surrounding courtyard protected by a custom wooden screen reminiscent of Southern gardens. Meanwhile, the custom mahogany front double doors by E. F. San Juan beckon, along with impact-rated glass doors surrounding the pool deck and second-floor terrace, made by Weather Shield and provided by E. F. San Juan. Opening these up during cooler months creates a seamless connection between nature and the home, as do the folding Euro-Wall Systems windows in the fourth-floor tower. Details like these make it easy to take advantage of the preserved landscape making up much of Heritage Dunes and, of course, stunning Gulf views. The home was crafted with precision by the talented and steadfast team at Grand Bay Construction, with landscape design by Patrick Hodges of Patrick Hodges Land Studio bringing the flora and natural textures of the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast to life around the residence.

So Very Ralph

The home’s four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and ample living spaces—including a beautiful vaulted great room, a third-floor den and game area, and the stunning fourth-floor tower—were creatively appointed by interior designer Duce May of Duce & Company. His inspiration, playing off the home’s coastal classic Southern vernacular, also came from the American tradition and high-end style of designer Ralph Lauren. The Ralph Lauren Home Modern Collections served as a focal point for furnishings, with rich leather and wood tones, chrome lighting, and more from the line making appearances throughout Duce May’s design, along with pieces from other luxury lines. He also curated an organic-feeling grouping of accessories, decor, and spectacular finishes and tile throughout the house, bringing delightful pops of color and pattern to a mostly neutral palette. On the pool deck and terrace, furnishings and planters by Maison30a Home + Garden reflect the coastal lifestyle, giving residents the ultimate spots to relax, dine, or even work outdoors.

From fashion to furnishings, Ralph Lauren’s timeless look was also a great jumping-off point for the team at VIE magazine and The Idea Boutique to create a brand look and feel for The Heritage. Our designers and storytellers translated the undeniable sense of class and tradition into a logo, brand landscape for social media, a new website at HeritageDunes.com, and a star-studded grand show home reveal on September 16, 2022. To convey a sense of nostalgia and the fact that this nonrental community beckons generations of families to enjoy and linger endlessly at the beach, CEO/editor-in-chief Lisa Burwell and the team drew inspiration from vintage photos of the Kennedys, Cape Cod, the Hamptons, Ralph Lauren fashion shoots on sailboats, and the charming lifestyle and picturesque Gulf Coast around 30-A when branding the home and its eight successors. We hope the story of this house represents the memories to be made in Heritage Dunes for years to come.

Celebrity chefs E.J. and Emeril Lagasse also joined the celebration at The Heritage as the evening’s culinary masters.

Star Power

A home is just a house without art to fill its nooks and adorn its walls. The Heritage – A VIE Legacy Show Home was blessed with a serendipitous opportunity as Julian Lennon, the magazine’s February 2022 100th Issue cover star, provided over forty of his fine art photographs to hang throughout all four floors. A collection of images Lennon captured throughout years of travel, philanthropic endeavors, and concerts, the photos provide a variety of subject matter, from dreamy landscapes to thought-provoking portraiture. Lennon’s art curator, Wendy Posner of Posner Fine Art, worked with architect Gerald Burwell and Duce May to choose the perfect space for each photograph. Technology from The Fine Art Ledger allowed guests walking through the home’s grand reveal celebration to scan a QR code to discover details on each piece or purchase a limited-edition fine art print of their own.

The Ralph Lauren Home Modern Collections served as a focal point for furnishings, with rich leather and wood tones, chrome lighting, and more from the line making appearances throughout Duce May’s design.

Celebrity chefs E.J. and Emeril Lagasse also joined the celebration at The Heritage as the evening’s culinary masters. They prepped decadent charcuterie boards, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and end-of-the-night sweets for over two hundred guests, creating an unforgettable experience for all in attendance. Bouj & Co. champagne cart provided bubbles with a glittering twist upon arrival, while the crafted beverage experience was led by owner Myra Barginear of Paul Sutton Bourbon, along with local Odd Pelican Beer, wines provided by Chef Jim Richard and Grayton Corner Cafe, and a specialty “Parisian Vacation” cocktail recipe by Better Together Beverage. Coastal Coffee Bar Co. was on hand with delicious specialty hot and iced coffee drinks for those needing a boost. Designer Grove Fisher of Fisher’s Flowers was an invaluable asset in organizing and styling the event, including creating the beautiful floral step-and-repeat.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for The Heritage Grand Reveal, Julian Lennon Solo Fine Art Photography Exhibit, and fundraiser for Point Washington Medical Clinic in September. It was indeed a night to remember as this remarkable team’s hard work and dedication culminated in such a beautiful result.
