NAPLES, Fla. (July 10, 2017) – Naples Reserve is welcoming the first homebuyers to its villa neighborhood, Coral Harbor. With lake- and preserve-view attached villas, Coral Harbor offers the ease of an open floor plan combined with the appeal of low-maintenance, easy Florida living.
Shannon Page said she and her husband Francois were first attracted to Naples Reserve because of its “laid-back Florida Keys feel.”
“The whole community is beautiful,” said Page. “We love the lakes, clubhouse, amenities and the open area.”
While touring Naples Reserve, the Pages gravitated toward Coral Harbor for the neighborhood’s price point and size, and the villa’s open concept.
The two-bedroom, two-bath plus den Cambridge Villa features a great room design that seamlessly blends dining and living areas in 1,519 air-conditioned square feet, while the lanai extends the home’s living space for alfresco entertaining.
“We really like the privacy of the landscape buffer,” she added.
Coral Harbor’s proximity to the Walk & Wag Dog Park was also a plus. The couple plans to enjoy time there with Bella, their 4-year-old lab mix adopted from the Humane Society Naples.
“We’ll also be taking advantage of the pool, fitness center and pickleball courts,” said Page.
Homebuyers can visit a furnished Cambridge Villa model decorated by Mercedes Lopez of One of a Kind Design that features a contemporary flair with a palette of soft golds and off-whites with touches of merlot. Neutral tile floors, gold-tone lighting fixtures, and glass and Lucite accent pieces unify the main living spaces.
The Cambridge is priced from $284,990 and builder D.R. Horton is currently offering a limited number of move-in ready units in Coral Harbor.
Naples Reserve was created by iStar, which was named 2015 Developer of the Year by Builder and Developer magazine for its commitment to creating exceptional communities and lifestyles with an emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental stewardship.
Created amongst 22 lakes and sweeping open water views, the 688-acre community emphasizes lakefront living with Southern Coastal-inspired homes and amenities along the water’s edge. Lakes provide prime opportunities for kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding and scenic vistas. The community’s centerpiece 125-acre Eagle Lake features a large tiki hut on destination Kontiki Island and also offers a mile-long stretch of lakefront nestled against the Picayune Strand State Forest, a 76,000-acre state park with protected pinelands, cypress swamps, marshes and abundant wildlife.
iStar has completed the community’s initial lakefront resort-inspired amenities, including the $7 million Island Club social center featuring a 5,160-square-foot clubhouse and an adjacent 3,500-square-foot fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment and a movement studio for spinning, Zumba and yoga. Outdoors, an expansive, resort-style zero-entry pool offers dedicated lap lanes and ample room for relaxation.
Indoor and alfresco gathering areas at the Island Club include a lakeside fire pit and casual beverage and dining options at Chat ‘n Chill Tiki Bar and Latitudes Cafe. At the Outrigger Center, a variety of watercraft options are available for residents use, as well as a flex-space available for game days, special events and other activities. Cruises on the community’s two Duffy electric boats depart from the center’s floating docks for residents to explore Eagle Lake and Kontiki Island.
The lakefront Match Point complex, offering tennis and pickleball courts is now open. Naples Reserve also offers homebuyers along Eagle Lake the opportunity for a personal floating boat dock.
Additional planned amenities include a Kid’s Cove playground and picnic area, two dog parks – Walk & Wag opening soon and Paws Awhile in 2018 – and a meandering linear park for biking, hiking and jogging. Navigating a loop road circling Naples Reserve, the park is designed to engage residents with their natural environment and provide an alternative mode of transportation throughout the community.
Naples Reserve residents receive complimentary one-year social memberships at Walker’s Hideaway Marina of Naples, a yacht club along the Gordon River offering a marina, indoor storage for 600 boats, two waterside restaurants, outdoor pool and sauna, and access to Naples Bay.
Naples Reserve offers 17 fully decorated models available for viewing, built by Southwest Florida’s premier homebuilders, including Ashton Woods, D.R. Horton, Florida Lifestyle Homes, KTS Homes, Lundstrom Development, Marvin Development, McGarvey Custom Homes and Stock Signature Homes. Homes are priced from the high-$200s to more than $1 million.
Naples Reserve is located off U.S. 41, 2 miles southeast of the Collier Boulevard/CR 951 intersection and 10 minutes from I-75, Exit 101. Visit the community at 14885 Naples Reserve Circle.
