Much more that an alluring resort that attracts hordes of visitors when the temperatures dip elsewhere, Naples, Florida now enjoys an enviable reputation as a year-round residential paradise. With the intensified attention to the area’s numerous advantages (from the sandy beaches to the first-class shopping) naturally comes interest in its high-end real estate. And in this aspect, as with many others, Naples does not disappoint. Together with Naples-based real estate agent Dante DiSabato, Haute Residence takes a tour around the city’s most opulent homes.
Historic Importance and Architectural Refinement Reside Here
From its distinct design to its numerous amenities, 2500 Gordon Dr. is a true marvel whose significance transcends modern-day whims. Its Lowcountry style is not only an architectural hallmark, it is also the most efficient approach to building residences in coastal and subtropical regions. Beyond its expansive, porch-girdled hulk, this $60,900,000 home possesses a refinement that, throughout the years, has indulged presidents and special guests alike for official gatherings as well as private soirees. The grace of the main home, unfolding among manicured gardens with massive palm trees, is complemented by multiple guest facilities, a pool with its own house, as well as a “secret retreat.”
A New Level of Luxury
A masterpiece by A. Vernon Allen Builders, La Capanna blends old-world Italian aesthetics with the ease of beachfront living. Huddled behind a gated entry on lush park-like grounds, the $51,900,000 residence encompasses more than 18,000 sq. ft. of unsurpassed luxury. The usual high-end amenities aside, the home comes with a beachside game room, a pergola-covered spa, a 5-bay collectors garage, a two-story rotunda, a 500-bottle wine bar, a zero edge reflection pool and cabana, among other features. La Capanna is luxury elevated to a new breath-taking level.
Sprawling along Port Royal’s most coveted waterways, 1832 Galleon Dr is a modern-day palace. And this might be an understatement. The $39,900,000 home covers nearly 13,000 sq. ft. of opulent living space, which is, nonetheless, constructed with functionality and comfort in mind. Hailed as one of the finest homes ever built in Naples, the house, with its 5 bedrooms and 8 full baths, is indeed worthy of royalty.
The Master of Entertainment
A dual-gated entry leads to 1100 Spyglass Ln, one of the most remarkable waterfront estates in Port Royal. Built in 1996 on a 1.75-acre lot with 200 feet of water frontage, the $29,900,000 million home has recently undergone a complete makeover, which has elevated it to an entertainer’s dream abode. It comes with a spacious cabana, a 1,000-bottle wine room, a mother-of-pearl-tiled pool and a concrete floating dock that invites festivities year-round.
A Rare Find
While Naples is known for its waterfront homes, an estate of the caliber of 4228 Gordon Dr is rarely available. This two-story, $27,490,000 residence is part of a prestigious community that offers mesmerizing vistas of the Gulf of Mexico alongside world-class dining and shopping opportunities. Close to the charming heart of Port Royal, which blends bygone refinement and modern-day creativity, the house welcomes all types of personalities – from socialites to beach lovers to history and nature buffs.
