Naples Reserve hits 50% sold mark
Naples Reserve has welcomed its 544th buyers, Sharon and Robert Bloom, which has pushed the community to the 50% sold mark. The couple purchased a four-bedroom model home from Lundstrom Development in Parrot Cay, one of the Phase I neighborhoods at iStar’s 688-acre community of Southern Coastal-inspired attached villa, single-family and custom estate homes in South Naples.
The Blooms had already experienced life in a golf course community on the east coast of Florida. When they began looking for a new home, they decided to trade both coasts and settings. “We decided that if we weren’t going to live on a golf course again, we wanted to live on water,” said Sharon Bloom.
After researching a lot of options, they found Naples Reserve – which was created amongst 22 lakes – to be the best fit. “We like all the lakes there, and we like that it’s new,” said Sharon.
“We were looking for a home anywhere from 2,800 to 3,500 square feet, and Parrot Cay seemed to be the right neighborhood for us to go into,” said Sharon. “The Lundstrom model was perfect and exactly what we wanted.”
Through August 2019, there have been 161 home sales at Naples Reserve, and the community is already approaching 2018’s total of 172 sales.
“Buyers continue to discover the unique amenities and array of home options at Naples Reserve,” said Heather Thompson, Naples Reserve’s marketing manager. “Once they experience the laidback, lakefront lifestyle that residents of the community enjoy, many decide they want to be a part of it.”
The Blooms look forward to riding bikes throughout Naples Reserve and getting out on the lakes, which provide prime opportunities for using the community’s Hydrobikes, kayaks, canoes and paddleboards, and enjoying scenic vistas. The 125-acre Eagle Lake features a large tiki hut on destination Kontiki Island, in addition to a mile-long rowing lane nestled against the Picayune Strand State Forest, a 76,000-acre state park with protected pinelands, cypress swamps, marshes and abundant wildlife.
The community’s lakefront, resort-inspired amenities include the $7-million Island Club social center, which features 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 the Chat ‘n Chill Tiki Bar and Latitudes Cafe. The nearby Outrigger Center offers a variety of watercraft options available for residents’ use and serves as the departure point for cruises on the community’s two Duffy electric boats for exploring Eagle Lake and Kontiki Island. Naples Reserve also offers homebuyers along Eagle Lake and the mile-long rowing lane the opportunity for a personal floating boat dock.
At the lakefront Match Point complex, residents can challenge their neighbors to some friendly competition on five tennis and four pickleball courts. Nearby, the Walk & Wag dog park provides a place for residents and four-legged friends to enjoy together.
Navigating a loop road circling Naples Reserve, the meandering linear park is designed to engage residents within their natural environment and provide an alternative mode of transportation throughout the community, including biking, hiking and jogging.
An additional dog park – Paws Awhile – is also planned, as well as the Kid’s Cove area.
Naples Reserve offers 18 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 low $300,000s 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 or online at NaplesReserve.com.
