Harbourside Custom Homes’ move-in ready Villa Lante residence is nearing completion and scheduled to open in Talis Park’s Fairgrove neighborhood in July.

Harbourside Custom Homes’ Villa d’Este model residence at Talis Park sold a week prior to the community’s grand opening event held April 20-21 in conjunction with the National Association of Realtors’ National Open House Weekend that was hosted locally by the Naples Area Board of Realtors. The sale included an 18-month lease-back that will allow the Villa d’Este to remain open and available for viewing into 2014.

The 3,175-square-foot, fully-furnished Villa d’Este great room model in Talis Park’s Fairgrove neighborhood offers three bedrooms, four baths, a study, a double-island kitchen with stainless steel Thermador appliances, a formal dining room, a covered lanai with an optional summer kitchen, fireplace, pool and spa, a three-car garage and a security package that can be operated via an iPad. An optional built-in entertainment center in the great room includes a wet bar and a wine bar. The Villa d’Este’s base floor plan price, with lot included, is $1.325 million. The Villa d’Este model’s California casual interior was designed by Debbie DeMaria, ASID, I.D.S and Leslie Gebert, ASID of Vogue Interiors.

Talis Park also announced Harbourside’s Villa Lante move-in ready residence is nearing completion and scheduled to open in Fairgrove in July. The single-story, 3,101-square-foot under air Villa Lante great room floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a formal dining room, a study, an island kitchen, a three-car garage and an outdoor living area with a covered lanai, pool, spa, summer kitchen and a fire pit. The move-in ready Villa Lante is priced at $1.395 million.

“The Villa Lante is situated on a site in Fairgrove that offers a gorgeous, parklike golf course and lake view from the rear of the home and an unobstructed view of a preserve from the front,” said Harbourside’s Frank Jenkins. “The architectural design incorporates a beautiful stone treatment at the front entry and around a window on the front of the home. The open floor plan flows extremely well and includes numerous windows that flood the living spaces with natural light. We’re very excited about the sale of the Villa d’Este and about the opportunity to build in Talis Park. We’re looking forward to completing the Villa Lante.”

Harbourside is finishing the Villa Lante in a neutral color palette that will blend with the home’s natural light. Porcelain tile flooring is being used throughout the living areas with wood flooring in the study and carpeting in the bedrooms. Elegant coffered ceiling details are included in the foyer, great room, dining room, study, kitchen, breakfast nook, master bedroom and master bath. The kitchen will feature premium cabinetry and granite counter tops as well as a large island that has been designed to provide comfortable seating while entertaining. Each bathroom will also be finished with granite counter tops and premium cabinetry. The master bath’s porcelain tile floor and shower wall covering will be complimented by a decorative listello.

Talis Park’s five neighborhoods offer the possibility of living in a parklike setting or in a maintenance-free environment within walking distance of the community’s village center. This “in the park” or “in the village” approach reflects developer Kitson Partners’ commitment to creating a New Fashioned community where every aspect of country club living is relevant to the residents’ daily lives and rituals.

The “in the park” lifestyle of the Fairgrove neighborhood offers golf course, water and preserve views. Fairgrove is a “single loaded” neighborhood with south facing homes on only one side of the street. Unobstructed views to the north include a Talis Park preserve and a golf course in an adjacent community. Fairgrove’s Italian Renaissance designs honor the more traditional view of Naples’ architecture and are joined by a Spanish Eclectic style that offers a perfect complement. Homes being built in Fairgrove by Harbourside Custom Homes and by Imperial Homes of Southwest Florida, in partnership with Iron Star Funding, range from 3,100 to 4,000 square feet.

Talis Park’s neighborhoods are being crafted by Southwest Florida’s finest custom homebuilders and present all-new home designs in a fresh palette of Spanish eclectic, Italian Renaissance and Colonial Caribbean architectural styles. The new designs are the result of developer Kitson Partners’ design partnership with Stofft Cooney and Herscoe Hajjar Architects that has produced more than 20 Portfolio Plans exclusively for Talis Park. The availability of the Portfolio Plans provides an array of newly-created designs priced from the $700s into the millions.

Talis Park’s village center will include Vyne House, the central gathering place of the community. Vyne House will consist of a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day. Phase I of Vyne House is under construction and will be completed in September. Phase I includes completion of Vyne House Shops that will feature Fiona’s Market Cafe. The Vyne House Core Fitness Center and Esprit Spa will also be completed in Phase I.

The Talis Park Golf Studio is also expanding to triple its dining capacity and create an outdoor dining and lounge experience that will overlook the driving range. The project includes a new covered outdoor dining venue and covered outdoor bar pavilion, both of which will be completed in June.

Talis Park’s Garden House sales center is at 16990 Livingston Road, north of Immokalee Road in North Naples. Online at talispark.com.
