This Memorial Day Why Not Change Up Your Lifestyle: Our Favorite Listings In Naples, Florida

Posted on Sunday, May 24, 2015

My friend Rich in his Austin Healey

(get down here and enjoy year round living in Naples)

Why not change-up your lifestyle, escape the cold and rain and come down here and join us for some warm weather 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. 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!

1480 elevation

1480 Curlew (on track for June Grand Opening)

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).

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.


(beautiful master suite with water view)

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.
