1520 Curlew Elevation

1520 Curlew (on track for grand opening in four weeks!)

Yesterday I was sitting by the on-water pool construction on the water watching a flock of parrots who have settled into our property for an afternoon serenade.  Talk about a tropical paradise!  Water, sun, brand new construction in a beautiful design and song birds around you.  Nice.

A lot was happening yesterday at 1520 Curlew. The interior painting started, the Key West style metal roof was going on up top, and the final touches on the water side pool stem wall was put in place. We are getting close! Our next listing is a brand new on-water 3,000+ square foot Key West home at 1520 Curlew available November, 2014 (Matrix MLS #ML# 214041121) asking $2,100,000. This new private home is offered now during pre-construction to allow owner directed completion.

This single family home with no HOA fees (or rules!) provides you with an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, four good size bathrooms and four full baths and a porch and metal roof emphasizing that Key West look.
Your guests will feel lots of room and comfort at 1520 Curlew. The kitchen is designed based on our known buyer preferences – big work areas, an island with seven seat capacity for nice casual dining and entertaining options and plumbed and wired for other features you might desire.

We also designed a big master suite into this home which runs nearly the entire length of the east side of the structure. This master suite offers two walk-in closets with plenty of storage room and a nice two sink master bath design and a clawed foot tub. Walk out to a wonderful outdoor space featuring an outdoor fireplace, outdoor grill and the pool – all with a southern exposure surrounded by the master bedroom and back guest bedroom.

Our next listing is this brand new and beautiful British West Indies home at 1480 Curlew with 3,000+ square feet of living under air and the same open floor plan as 1520 curlew (above).

This home is under construction with expected completion in January, 2015. .

The outdoor living area with its outdoor fireplace and grill, south-facing pool and canal views offer a great place to spend an evening. Four bedrooms, four full baths, vaulted ceilings and a feel for island times long past in the West Indies.

We were able to save some of the existing trees on the property including several coconut palms at water’s edge. We combined these plants with the very smart look of a Brazilian zoysia grass lawn.
We think resulting exterior design looks great in the evening with solar-powered up lighting and British West Indies architectural features. 1480 Curlew is offered at $2,100,000 and may be purchased during construction.
Well you get the idea. Three great on water options all walking distance to Old Naples and the Naples Bay Resort. Boat, walk and enjoy life here in the southwest Florida sunshine.

1480 elevation

1480 Curlew (on track for March Grand Opening)

Yesterday at 1480 Curlew the insulation was going in and the sheet rock is scheduled for today.  Doors are on and were are tracking for the March opening.

We formed 1480 Curlew LLC to bring a new home to the tight supply Naples real estate market. 1480 Curlew is in Golden Shores on the north end of Royal Harbor.  The new home is on the water with great boat opportunities and walking distance to the Naples Bay Resort.

Newly constructed homes are in big demand right now. Developments like the Isles of Colliers Preserve, Treviso Bay, Twin Eagles and Fiddlers Creek all have found our clients buying homes. There are however very few new homes on the water close to Naples and we thought our buyers might like this one.  It is estimated the supply of new homes is one to two months with very few on Naples Bay.

1480 Curlew is on Naples Bay. Many people come here for the Gulf of Mexico and enjoyment on the water. 1480 Curlew is on a canal just 100 yards from Naples Bay and two steps closer to the bay then its sister home at 1520 Curlew – so no bridges or obstructions to the Bay our out the Gulf. Our neighbor has a forty foot + boat at his dock so we know you may put a decent size boat right in your back yard.  Head to on water restaurants, a day at the beach or longer runs to Key West and the Bahamas – all from your own backyard.

British West Indies Style. Our buyers and the market (and us) like the British West Indies style so we decided to liven up the street and bring this beautiful look to the neighborhood. We plan to provide the same pleasant entrance, just a few feet in the front door and allow the owner to enjoy a view which opens up to straight through views of your canal and a wide open floor plan.  Pleasing colors, a relaxed feel and pleasant feeling of home.

Big Bedrooms. We designed four good size bathrooms and full baths so you and your guests will feel lots of room and comfort.  Your guests will enjoy their own bathrooms and their own private space across the great room from the master.

Master Bedroom. We know this is a key feature for our buyers and we designed a big master bedroom with a walk out to the spa and views of the canal.  The master suite runs nearly the length of the east side of the home. Two big closets for plenty of storage and a  nice two sink master bath design.

Outdoor Living.  A wonderful outdoor space surrounded by the master and a guest bedroom with an outdoor fireplace, outdoor grill and the pool all with a southern exposure to keep you warm even in January evenings.

Walking Distance to Naples Bay Resort. Many of our buyers like to walk to things keeping with that Key West or island living lifestyle. Since the home is on the north end of the Royal Harbor area you have a very short walk to the Naples Bay Resort full of amenities, restaurants, spa, water adventures, land excursions and affordable membership opportunities.
