Nelsons Walk is a quiet byway in Naples, but the 26 homeowners there are actually living on Easy Street.
That’s because Nelsons, with a median home value of $10.5 million, is No. 12 on Zillow.com’s list of the country’s wealthiest streets.
No. 1 on the list is Indian Creek Island Road on Indian Creek Island in Biscayne Bay. The median home value there is $21.5 million and residents include Denzel Washington and Eddie Murphy.
Nelsons Walk has its share of celebrities too: Residents include best-selling mystery author Janet Evanovich and pest control king Truly Nolen, chairman and president of Truly Nolen Inc.
The street gets a boost right off the bat by being part of Port Royal, the most expensive community in Naples.
Cheryl Turner, a real estate agent with Premier Properties Sotheby’s International Realty in Naples, said Nelsons is “a wonderful street, fabulous,” but that its Port Royal location likely was responsible for pushing it on the national list.
“You’ve got wider water views, no bridges, the Gulf, the most exclusive neighborhood in town,” she said. “The prices are just continuing to go up.”
People are often shocked at how expensive a house in Port Royal can be, Turner said. “I had a client call on a house and the asking price was $23 million — he had thought maybe $11 million.”
