Synonymous with white sandy beaches, clear calm waters and beautiful homes, Naples is one of the most sought after areas to live within the United States. Located on the south west coast of the state of Florida, Naples is ranked as the happiest and healthiest community in America by the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. Add to this, a well performing property market and yearlong sunshine and it’s no wonder investors from all over – especially colder climates – flock to this waterfront destination.
Located in the exclusive community of Aqualane Shores is a new 5,868 sq. ft. estate built by Seascape Builders and designed by JLH Architects. The property overlooks a beautiful canal, so don’t be surprised to see dolphins, tarpon and manatees swimming past your home. Sitting on a premium 0.3 acre lot, the lucky owners will have picturesque views of the much heralded sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico.
For those looking to take advantage of the spectacular boating destinations the area has to offer, the property features an 85 foot lpe deep water dock with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Perfect for mooring your latest Princess or Viking yacht.
This magnificent home features five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two half bathrooms spread across two floors. It’s constructed completely out of concrete (an important factor for a Florida home) and finished off with a white stucco exterior. The property benefits from two fireplaces for the occasional cool winter evening, a four car garage, so the entire family has room for a ride, a state of the art security system and central coolingand heating.
If you love cooking, you’re in luck. There’s two kitchens! The large main indoor kitchen has built in top of the line Wolf and Sub-zero appliances. It also features marble countertops, a large island and walnut wood flooring. The open plan style allows for easy indoor dining or direct access to the outdoor patio. However, adding to the airy openness of the home, the second kitchen is in a room that can be fully opened up, becoming part of the patio area. Great for those evening dinners by the pool.
The bedrooms are large and wood floors feature throughout. The master bedroom opens up onto the pool area where large doors and windows give the room a light and airy feel. While, the views out over the canal are spectacular. The remaining four bedrooms are located upstairs and are connected to a den on the upper mezzanine. There’s also a spacious balcony, so the outdoors can be enjoyed from every floor of the home. Savant home automation. The simplicity by which you can do tasks within the home is remarkable. Systems can be programmed to your mobile device, so everything from lighting to entertainment can be easily accessed anytime.
When time comes to head outside, the rear of the home has an inviting partially covered outdoor patio with water views and a swimming pool that begs you to dive in. Having grown up in Florida, I can honestly say, this is one of the nicest outdoor spaces I’ve seen, to best enjoy South Florida’s warm and sunny climate.
