The Warm Hug Of A Naples Summer Day – Why Not Change Up Your Lifestyle?

Posted on Sunday, July 26, 2015

My friend Rich in his Austin Healey

How about this Naples summer weather! Life in the sub tropical climate with steady low 90’ s heat and so much to do outdoors. I know, I know some of my northern friends say it is too hot and humid but I will trade these quiet Naples summer days for all my old up north winter days.

Why not change-up your lifestyle, come down here for the “warm hug” of the sub tropics and join us in the Florida sunshine?  The real estate market here is as hot as the weather with sales volumes at a six-year high.  Sales in Naples are moving quickly these days – even with the end of tourism season and the approach of summer the year-rounders and European tourists are making up the difference. The town is alive.

Many buyers look for bargains and parents look to buy new homes before school begins.  Sellers like to enter the market with less competition. Please let us know if you know of anyone who would like to sell their home.

We would be pleased to have a conversation with them. Even if they are working with a realtor – but not under contract – we are a great second opinion.

Please keep in mind we have new listings coming available each month so contact us at 239.595.3921 or look to our blog as we announce new listings.

Here is what we are all excited about this month!

(single family living with a preserve view – wow, but you missed this one as it is now under contract. You have to move quickly in this market!)

This is a rare custom home in the Preserve section of Indigo Lakes (psst – no one can build behind you!)  A generous open floor plan perfect for entertaining and family living. 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, den and great room opening onto an expansive covered lanai, beautiful pool and serene view of the preserve.

Quiet, private and absolutely beautiful. Other features include large master bath with walk-in closet and granite counters and a guest suite with separate entrance. Many green design features include mastic-sealed air conditioning ducts, air tight recessed lights, insulated hot water pipes, and elastomeric seals providing a permanent barrier between the homes interior and the slab.

Exquisite appointments including vaulted ceilings, crown molding, architectural niches and a formal dining area with tray ceiling and room to seat lots of family and friends. A well maintained home on a quiet street with a beautiful preserve view – come and see it.

Ok you missed this one, but how about this next one!


(Our curlew homes are showing a lot of interest with an offer received just this last week!)

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.

1520 Curlew Boat In The Back

(keep your 40 foot + boat in your back yard and head to Gulf with no restrictions)

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.

On to our next listing ….

1480 Curlew - Pool shot

(Another one of our Curlew Homes – The beautiful on-water pool view at 1480 Curlew)

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.

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.

1480 Curlew Master

(1480 Curlew Master Bedroom (hint, you look out at the water from your bed!)

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 Suite. 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.
