Fall may be just around the corner for us here in the Midwest, but today we’re letting summer linger a little longer by taking you to a place where sunny days are always here to stay. Naples has been a busy spot for our team this year and in addition to our Seagate build hitting the market soon, we’d like to welcome you to our latest project breaking ground in Golden Shores.
The Golden Shores community in Royal Harbor is a true hidden gem. Located directly across the bay from downtown Naples, it’s easily walkable from world-class shopping and dining but offers a more quiet, private lifestyle. This specific property is located on a canal just two houses in from Naples Bay, providing coveted direct boat access to the Gulf.
INTRODUCING PELICAN AVENUE
We partnered with our architectural team at Hlevel in Naples to design a sophisticatedly modern exterior characterized by sleek, clean lines and dramatic windows. Warm, light colored stucco serves as a striking contrast to dark windows. Special attention was paid to landscape design, ensuring that this home welcomes with a colorful array of native plantings.
When dreaming up a waterfront property, our intention is to emphasize the view as much as possible, showing it off from the moment you walk through the door and prioritizing indoor/outdoor spaces throughout the home. Boasting over 5000 sq ft of living space on two levels (reached by stairway or a private elevator), this home was thoughtfully designed to be a contemporary coastal retreat. An entire wing of the first floor serves as a private sanctuary for owners, complete with a luxe bedroom and walk-in closet, massive spa bathroom and office. The rest of this level is open for entertaining with interior spaces seamlessly flowing into outdoor living areas. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors flood the entire home with brilliant natural light. Sitting just beside a stunning chef’s kitchen, both the expansive family room and formal dining spaces open directly out to a canal-front terrace. Practical touches of a mudroom/laundry area off the attached 3-car garage, a full pantry and pool bath complete this first level floor plan.
We can imagine this home will host countless vacations and sunny holidays of family and friends, so the second level was cleverly designed with guests in mind. On this floor, you’ll find four guest bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bath. A spacious rec/media room was incorporated in the layout to allow for guests to have a separate space to relax and unwind. This area leads out to a second floor terrace with sun chairs and casual seating, providing an unbeatable location to take in Naples Bay views by day and spectacular sunsets by night.
While the interiors of this home are designed to impress, the canal-front outdoor spaces showcase what makes Naples living such a dream. Every amenity you could hope for is here waiting in this private oasis – a pool, hot tub, and sun deck are ready to welcome days spent in the sun. We tucked an outdoor kitchen and bar, dining area and casual lounge space under the shade of the second floor terrace. If being out on the water is the kind of day you are after, head out on your boat to explore the Gulf or just across the Bay to dinner in downtown Naples.
This home is currently for sale and will be finished in 2024. Ready to own a slice of paradise this year?
