As seen in Gulfshore Life January 2015 issue.

PORT ROYAL IN NAPLES IS HOT, BUT

Aqualane Shores isn’t far behind.

Cheryl Turner, a broker associate at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, represented the buyer of 2168 Southwinds Drive, a 5,556 square­ foot home for boaters overlooking Jamaica Cove-just north of Port Royal. With five bedrooms and a den, the home is perfect for an expanding family or for entertaining. The den and a guest suite occupy part of the first floor, along with the huge gourmet kitchen, a formal dining room and the living area. “There are beautiful finishes and moldings, but it is not ornate,” Turner says.

A half-flight of stairs separates the second guest suite on the second level and the master bedroom on the top floor. The master suite has a fireplace and a balcony, as well as his-and-hers offices and his-and-hers baths. Naples-based Falcon Design Inc. designed the home, which was built in 2010, in a West Indies-inspired style with marble and wooden floors.

Outside, a new dock and seawall have been built for the new owners, a retired businessman and his wife from the Northeast. The area behind the home also includes an infinity-edge pool and a spa,-as well as an outdoor fireplace. And while Aqualane Shores doesn’t provide access to the exclusive Port Royal Club, the buyers “are getting a little more value dollar­ wise” with their new home, Turner says. “Port Royal lots and lands are going to be more expensive,” she explains . At a price similar to what the couple paid, she adds, “You would get something that is older” in Port Royal.

This will be my last column for Florida Weekly. No, I haven’t been fired, nor have I lost interest in communicating with all of you on a regular basis.

It’s just that a column is hard work and very time consuming, and with the real estate market becoming crazy-busy (and we aren’t even in full season yet), I simply don’t have the time to devote to writing against deadline anymore.

I would have thought by now that I would have run out of ideas for my column, but the truth is, they just keep coming. Indeed, the column has made me look more closely at the here and now and how my life (and life itself) fits into it.

The column has caused me to reexamine who I am, the values in my life as instilled in me by my parents, my friends and mentors, but also those values I have come to embrace myself just by noticing LIFE — something, as John Lennon wrote, that “happens to us while we are making other plans.” Read more C-SCAPES
