West Coast of Florida: Naples

By Lauryn Howell

Named after the stunning Italian city, Naples perfectly embodies Florida Living while adding its own unique charm. While it exhibits the unbeatable weather, endless coast lines and sugar sand beaches we all love, Naples is much more than your basic Florida getaway.

Although visitors are drawn to the beauty of its Gulf Coast shores and world-class boating, there are also plenty of things to do a little farther inland. Home to 80 professional courses, Naples is the self-proclaimed “Golf Capital of the World,” making it the perfect place to tee off. If you’re looking for something a little faster paced, you’ll enjoy the world-class road biking or exciting nature tours through the nearby Florida Everglades.

In the words of Tim Savage, resident of Naples since 1986 and Principal/Realtor with Gulf Coast International Properties, “It’s a popular vacation destination, yet Naples has maintained a very real small town feel.” This intimacy is evident in the quaint downtown area, filled with restaurants and an historic shopping district. The art scene is also quite impressive with its numerous sophisticated galleries, frequent art fairs and events at the local Artis—Naples. Naples is a one-of-a-kind destination, quite literally offering something for everyone.

Tim has been helping people find their Naples dream home for over 16 years with fantastic listings in Naples premier locations such as the home at 220 North Lake Drive in Olde Naples. Sitting just seven houses from the beach, this Key West-style cottage estate is as beautiful as it is luxurious.

Florida will forever be a coveted vacation destination, but it’s the pristine cities like Naples that truly draw in residents and visitors. It doesn’t take a lot of convincing to attract visitors to Florida, and it’s easy to see why some never leave.

Luxurious Waterfront Living: Brevard County, Florida

By Cathleen McCann

Brevard County is a major up-and-coming area on central Florida’s Atlantic Coast. Often referred to as “The Hidden Jewel of Florida’s East Coast,” it is home to Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, earning it the nickname of the Space Coast.

While the space program might have put the area on the map, Brevard County’s fantastic location, warm climate and pleasant pace of life, combined with excellent home values, are a few of the reasons the area is seeing growth.

Melbourne, Brevard County’s capital, has beautiful communities adorned with palm trees and Mediterranean-style homes, as well as Caribbean/Key West-style homes. Its unique topography of ocean, rivers and canals makes waterfront living opportunities plentiful.

“We have it all here in Melbourne,” says Grace Vista, broker/owner of Vista Florida Realty, LLC, a boutique firm centrally located in Melbourne, Florida, specializing in waterfront, golf course communities and luxury real estate. “It’s a paradise for boating on the Intracoastal and rivers, fishing, birding and golfing.” Vista and her team help people with all of their luxury real estate needs—from relocation assistance to purchasing vacation homes and investment properties. With all of this and more, it’s no wonder that Melbourne is attracting young families, business professionals and retirees alike.

Quality and price make homes here a great value. Proximity to major international airports and beaches help make it an attractive and vibrant community.

Luxury home examples include a 4-bedroom, 4,012-square-foot oceanfront condo in Indialantic for $1.059 million. This penthouse condo has a balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a double-sided fireplace. A $699,000 contemporary Frank Lloyd Wright tribute home on the Indian River has a swimming pool and a new 213-foot dock. Additionally, many golf course communities have Mediterranean-style homes overlooking the golf course starting in the low $400,000 range.

“People are excited to move here,” says Vista. “Our luxury homes offer great value and many options.”

FEATURED PROPERTY: Lakewood Ranch, Florida

La Gran Dama is a one-of-a-kind estate on Florida’s gulf coast, in Lakewood Ranch, 20 minutes east of Sarasota’s award winning beaches and 45 minutes south of Tampa. With nearly 10,000 square feet on 1.3 acres, the sprawling masterpiece lives like a private estate, yet offers the convenience of a centralized location in one of Florida’s most sought after gated golf communities and A-rated school districts.

“La Gran Dama is a superlative example of what happens when intelligent architectural planning and masterful construction are combined with the use of the finest materials,” says Tina Ciaccio of RE/MAX Fine Properties.

Completed in 2004, the 3½-year project was planned by the firm Bloodgood Sharp Buster and constructed by Anchor Builders. Sarasota decorator Kurt Lucas combined a warm color palette with the use of materials from around the globe, creating a mood that is formal, yet comfortable. Lucas traveled with the owner along rough terrain through the mountains of San Miguel to meet with Mexican artisans that hand carved the stonework for the living room’s massive fireplace, the non-weight bearing entry sculptures, and the multiple pillars and columns. Various craftsmen contributed to the home’s one-of-a-kind chandeliers and lighting fixtures, hand-painted tile work, and the custom wrought-iron railings and gates.

The journey begins in the foyer with double volume ceilings, a divided staircase, and a pair of hand-carved stone statues that greet visitors into an exquisite formal living space with soaring ceilings and a magnificent hand-carved stone mantle fireplace. Beyond leads to a decadently appointed dining room, as well as a fully-equipped wet bar that also houses a 725-bottle wine cellar. Floors throughout the home are inlaid with wood, granite and marble, while grandly scaled moldings complement the decorative ceiling treatments, each designed with their own statement.

The ultra private outdoor living space is drenched in antiqued Turkish travertine, artisan carved volcanic stone pillars and a series of magnificent arches that set the stage to the soaring loggia and an open 40-foot salt system pebble tec pool. The estimated 3,500 square feet of outdoor living space includes a private spa set in a walled garden featuring a Texas cork stone fountain wall. For entertaining al fresco, there is also a screened lanai offering an outdoor kitchen, wet bar, living room and dining room, all centered by a dual-sided fireplace. A custom hand wrought iron drive gate controls entry to the large motor court and the double garages for up to 7 automobiles.

By Malena Carollo

 Situated along East Boca Raton’s lavish waterfront, Villa Coquina is an extravagant property for your dream lifestyle. The 17,032-squarefoot “peninsula compound estate” enjoys a sprawling 440 feet of waterfront, allowing for stunning views of the Intracoastal water way from the south, west and north.

Lushly landscaped, this gated gem is just a block away from the ocean. Residents can take a break from nearby seaside golf to lounge on some of Boca Raton’s undeveloped and pristine beaches.

Renowned architect Tom Benedict had entertaining in mind when he designed this property. Marrying design elements from each coast, Benedict’s California and Miami inspired masterpiece boasting an infinity edged, cascading waterfall grotto pool and spa, a covered gazebo with full bar and summer kitchen, complimented by a custom and fully automatic digital sound system that surrounds the entire property and docks.

Inside, guests can indulge in light fare in the exquisite main kitchen. Large events are made stress free with three oversized Sub-Zero refrigerators, double Thermador ovens, Gaggenau induction stove, butler’s pantry and wine room, six warmers, six dishwashers and a large storage pantry. Guests can set their drinks on elegant blue marble or decorative glass countertops before adjourning to the formal dining room, which seats 14.

The homes luxurious features include a multitude of amenities including a state-of-the-art home theatre, a fully-equipped fitness center, full bar, two fireplaces, elevator, five en-suite bedrooms with private terraces. The luxurious grand master suite includes a sitting room, wraparound balcony with breathtaking water views and a sumptuous onyx floored and walled master bath and shower.

700 Coquina Way is all about location, location, location. True South Florida luxury resort-style waterfront living at it's best.

November Featured Home: Soda Creek Mountain Retreat in Evergreen, Colo.

By Nicole Lauber

There are many mountain getaways, but there are few mountain retreats. Welcome to the Soda Creek Mountain Retreat, a meticulously maintained, Southwestern-styled estate on eight gated and manicured acres in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado.

 “This property is unique because it has all the features a custom homebuyer wants, but rarely finds collectively all in the same property,” says Kerry Endsley, owner of KCH Properties and Realtor with Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty. “The Soda Creek Mountain Retreat has privacy, location, indoor and outdoor recreation and equestrian facilities, and is the perfect blend of an entertainment and family home.”

 Located just 30 minutes from Denver and less than one hour from Denver International Airport, this 10,712-finished-square-foot estate is in the perfect location to enjoy gated privacy, while also having the amenities of a big city at your fingertips. Denver boasts high paying jobs in interesting and progressive new fields, endless recreation opportunities, major sports teams, a dynamic young population and beautiful weather year-round. The Soda Creek Mountain Retreat is also less than one hour away from several world-class ski resorts and every imaginable Colorado recreational opportunity.

 Entertainers will delight in the amenities this retreat offers: a 2-story great room with a massive wood-burning fireplace overlooking the indoor pool solarium, a cave grotto hot tub with television and audio, a 600-square-foot fully furnished teepee with a fire pit, a game room, a full bar, a 1,200-bottle wine cellar, a home theater with a 126-inch screen, a whole-house integrated audio-video system, a fully equipped exercise studio and expansive decks and patios that are perfect backdrops for parties and soirees.

Homebuyers looking for their perfect vacation retreat should act fast. “The luxury market in and around Evergreen is recovering nicely now, but still has a choice of unique luxury properties, making it the perfect time to buy,” Kerry says. “The Soda Creek Mountain Retreat is the perfect first or second home, family and entertainment home, and the single best home value in the prestigious Soda Creek Community and north Evergreen.”

 

This property is offered at $3 million, and cannot be duplicated for less than $5 million. Click here for listing and agent information.

Dubuque, Iowa

Built on 180+/- of land off of the Mississippi River and within the city that Forbes.com listed as the Best City to Raise a Family, this Dubuque, Iowa log estate has been designed as though it was built by the forest surrounding its crops and open fields. Much of this primitive mansion has been hand-crafted and designed by artists; from the custom light-fixtures to the waterfall in the master bathroom designed to recreate a waterfall from a creek off of one of the many hiking trails on the land. It hosts six large bedrooms along with six bathrooms/ four half baths and six fireplaces scattered around this indoor forest. Natural materials were used as much as possible in the architecture of this home to create the most natural feel possible. Built into the log styled walls and floors you will find Oklahoma stone, this feature is used throughout the entire home and is most impressive on the hand carved fire surround in the large living room. While the home may appear to be old country at a glance, you will find nothing short of top-line quality. The gourmet kitchen is decorated with Durasupreme cabinetry and granite counter tops along with enough appliances to run a restaurant. Sub Zero refrigerators and dual refrigerator drawers, two dishwashers, a six burner Wolf stove, and double oven with griddle are just a few of the things that work together to create what is easily a chef’s dream. Even your office/ library has been touched by Mother Nature herself with hand-carved doors and cherry covered ceilings. On this same floor level you will also find a laundry room with dual washer and dryers, a double sink, and a dog wash station. The floor below continues to impress with a personal exercise room, theater, and hand crafted bar with its own appliances. Outside the home you will find a personal pond along with the river just outside your door. The list of eye-popping amenities in and out of this woodsman’s castle goes on and on seemingly endlessly. The property will be auctioned with J.P. King Auction. For more information contact J. Craig King at (800)-558-5464 or visit http://www.dupontregistry.com/homes/Search/Details.aspx?itemid=1879812.
