A Strong Naples Real Estate Market Leads to the Sale of the Watlington in Old Naples

by Arelys Alexander

Naples real estate is booming, allowing prospective residents to find the luxury homes that  match their lifestyle with ease. 

The Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR) October 2018 report shows overall pending sales have increased by 17 percent, days on the market have decreased by 11 percent, overall closed sales have increased by 20 percent, and overall inventory has increased by 20 percent when compared to October 2017.

This data shows that luxury homes for sale in Naples FL are matching the needs of incoming residents anxious to begin enjoying a life of leisure.  Our award-winning Watlington model home in Old Naples is a great example of that, having sold soon after being completed.  This luxury model home is located at 41 5th Street South and is part of our Naples Collection of luxury homes and homesites from Park Shore to Port Royal.  It features 4,182 square feet of living space with four bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and one half bathroom.  The luxury home’s open floor plan blends the great room, dining room, and luxury kitchen, as well as allows for a smooth transition to the home’s outdoor living space.

The Watlington’s interior design features a focus on connectivity between spaces and entertaining with a beautiful coastal contemporary design with bright turquoise and green and coral accent pieces designed by Jennifer Stevens of Romanza Interior Design.  Stevens also opted for backlit beams and a glimmer of metallic and reflective surfaces, as well as ample upholstered furniture and casegoods for comfortable seating for entertaining and conversation.  Other highlights of the home include a blue-flame glacier crystal linear fireplace in the dining room, rich ombre draperies in shades of blue, a large rustic oak and antique nickel table with seating for eight, and ash wood flooring.  The kitchen, which was pinpointed for its design, features a large kitchen island with a cantilevered countertop and storage and an additional sink and casual seating.  A nearby butler’s pantry offers even more space for stocking party essentials.  The colors and accessories in the kitchen are kept to a minimum to provide a streamlined, clean look.
