PRODUCT DESIGNSingle Family Homes Builder $16,000,001 - $21,000,000 Private Residence
When a home is so perfectly in sync with its surroundings, everything about it speaks to a sense of place, an innate feeling of belonging only in this exact setting. This four-bedroom, five-and-two-half-bath custom estate model with captivating views of Doubloon Bay in Naples’ prestigious Port Royal, represents the highest level of integration, collaboration and innovation achieved when a builder involves its entire team of architects, interior designers and landscape architects from project inception to completion. The team took meticulous care to create a one-of-a-kind estate that would complement, not compete, with the home’s views while heightening the interplay between inside and outside spaces throughout its 6,569 square feet.
The estate’s clean-lined coastal contemporary architecture features a custom wood-and-glass pivoting entry door, large windows for natural light and ever-present views, spacious rooms and an open glass-railed staircase. The master bedroom and other indoor spaces seem to float on the surface of the infinity-edge pool and the bay beyond.
The Weiland doors in main living areas open to a full outdoor kitchen and an alfresco living room with a linear fireplace. The water globe of a reflecting pond is contrasted by the angles of integrated landscaping, the trapezoidal custom pool with a submerged spa, and an open-air firepit.
Natural light filters into the second-floor den, designed for entertaining and as a home office, from an expanse of sliding glass doors opening to a balcony and through ceiling-mounted Viva Porte doors overlooking a sunlit loft by the staircase. A private full bathroom is cleverly hidden in rift-sawn oak cabinets.
The second floor also offers three bedrooms, including a spacious VIP guest suite, a laundry room and elevator for added convenience.
Originally planned as a model, the home immediately captured the interest of new homebuyers, who purchased the home before completion. The home met all the desirable aspects of a custom home with well-appointed features, a private boat dock and stunning views.
