NAPLES, Fla. (March 29, 2018) – Two model homes at Naples Reserve, iStar’s 688-acre community of Southern Coastal-inspired attached villa, single-family and custom estate homes, were honored with 2018 Parade of Homes Awards by the Collier Building Industry Association in recognition of overall excellence in construction and design.
The Newport, built by KTS Homes, was the winner in the $1,000,0001 to $1,500,000 category. The home design offers three bedrooms and two baths under 3,030 air-conditioned square feet.
Florida Lifestyle Homes’ Siesta Key was a merit award recipient in the $1,000,0001 to $1,500,000 category. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home offers 2,811 square feet of living space.
Both winning homes are located in Naples Reserve’s Parrot Cay neighborhood, featuring a blend of single-family lake- and nature-view custom estate homes ranging from 2,811 to more than 3,507 square feet. Parrot Cay homes by Florida Lifestyle Homes, KTS Homes, Lundstrom Development, Marvin Development, McGarvey Custom Homes and Stock Signature Homes offer great room floor plans with expansive outdoor living spaces starting from the high-$700,000s.
With sales surpassing the $125 million milestone, Naples Reserve is one of South Naples’ fastest-selling master-planned communities. A select number of move-in ready lakefront homes are available within Sparrow Cay, Savannah Lakes, Egret Landing and Mallard Point.
Egret Landing has maintained its lead as the community’s most popular neighborhood with its offering of lake- and nature-view single-family homes. More than 36 percent of Naples Reserve homebuyers selected from the collection of one- and two-story homes with three to four bedrooms and up to three-and-a half baths from Ashton Woods and D.R. Horton, starting from the mid-$300,000s.
Savannah Lakes is another sought-after neighborhood that features fresh home designs, including some with extended lanais, outdoor kitchens and fireplaces. The neighborhood’s one- and two-story homes offer three to four bedrooms and up to four-and-a-half baths from the high-$300,000s.
Coral Harbor, Naples Reserve’s newest neighborhood of two-bedroom, two-bath attached villa homes introduced earlier this year, has also proven popular with homebuyers.
Offering lake and preserve views, the D.R. Horton-built homes start from the high-$200,000s.
Created amongst 22 lakes and sweeping open water views, the 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.
The Island Club offers an expansive, resort-style, zero-entry pool with a tropical waterfall and dedicated lap lanes, along with nearby bocce ball courts and a white-sand beach for lounging.
Indoor and alfresco gathering areas at the Island Club include a lakeside fire pit and casual beverage and dining options at the Chat ‘n Chill Tiki Bar and Latitudes Cafe.
At the Outrigger Center, a variety of watercraft options are available for resident 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.
Homebuyers can add private floating boat docks to available lots bordering Eagle Lake, where residents can enjoy electric boats, as well as boats with motors up to 2.5 horsepower.
Residents can also enjoy the lakefront Match Point complex, which offers five tennis and four pickleball courts. And nearby, the Walk & Wag dog park offers four-legged friends a place to play.
An additional dog park, Paws Awhile, is planned, as well as the Kid’s Cove playground and picnic area 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.
The best-selling South Naples community, 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-$200,000s to more than $1 million.
