Inspired by the possibilities for easy access to Gulf of Mexico beaches, acclaimed shops and boutiques on Third Street South, or gourmet dining at one of Fifth Avenue’s top-rated restaurants, residents are flocking to downtown and Old Naples ready to jump in on the opportunities of building a home in the center of it all.
For nearly three decades, London Bay Homes has been redefining Naples’ upscale lifestyle with custom homes built on premiere homesites selected by homeowners situated throughout Naples, from Old Naples to Park Shore to Port Royal.
“We can truly build anywhere in Southwest Florida,” said London Bay Homes’ President and CEO Mark Wilson. “We can help homeowners build the home of their dreams in the location of their dreams. Naples is an incredibly desirable location as it’s easy to get out on the water from here or to take in a little culture at the galleries, theaters and museums located nearby.”
When Dr. Robert Kiltz and Teah Hall began looking for a home, they didn’t find anything they loved. The decided to create their ideal home by building with London Bay Homes, whose philosophy of “Private Label Living” allowed them to design a home truly tailored to their specific needs and interests on a preferred homesite location.
“We could make changes and really customize it to what we wanted it to be,” said Teah Hall. “I explained to them what I wanted, and they really worked hard to do exactly that. And it turned out beautifully.”
“London Bay builds an awesome product, and you know they stand by that product,” said Dr. Kiltz. “I not only recommend them, but I already have eyes on another London Bay homesite and project because they’ve done such a great job on this.”
