    Not bad at all. Pretty typical, but it does have some nice details. I like the crown molding throughout. The all-white palate doesn’t look bad either. For $2 million less you can have a similar home on the other side of the Everglades:

    Gin Lane, which is next to Rum Row. I have to say I love the booze-themed street names. They should be more creative however, with things like “Johnny Walker Road”, or “Naples High Street”.

    Anyway, as for this house… The front facade is very cluttered, and downright confused looking. The back is better and isn’t bad. The interior is actually nice and has a lot of potential. There are a lot of good details to work with, and a proper interior could look great. It doesn’t really say “Florida” to me, but that’s not a bad thing.

    This is the same home as a previous post (with it’s floorplans):

    Having driven by the home myself before, I must say that its exterior is very bold, and tastefully appointed. This is the first time I have seen the interior photos and it seems quite European with more French ties than Medditeranean giving it the “non Floridian” look. I personaly would prefer the more Floridian look and maybe some more color other than all that white.

    I think the waterfront premium is not worth it here. Frankly, it looks like a canal and the boulder ‘shoreline’ is ugly. I know if you own a boat waterfront access is a plus. But how often are you on the boat as opposed to looking out to your backyard? Plus if you dock your boat (yacht) that would obscure views. If you can afford this house you can afford to dock your boat elsewhere. How busy and clean are these canals anyway?

    A little information about Port Royal in Naples:

    Street Names in Port Royal: “Sample named his most ambitious venture after the infamous 17th Century Jamaican city where “privateers” and smugglers spent their spoils. Although nothing like it’s namesake in looks or pedigree, the streets continue the pirate theme with names like Galleon Drive, Rum Row and Buccaneers Roost.”

    Canals: Port Royal property has some of the best deep water (allows for larger yacht draft) access (no bridge) to the Gulf and Ten Thousand Island area (sport fishing) of any location in Southwest Florida. Once you get over 50+ feet in length and 4+ feet in draft your options for where to dock become more limited. Port Royal property owners also recently approved a special assessment to pay for dredging to keep the canals deep. Unlike many canal systems that were created for Florida coastal cities (e.g., Cape Coral), the Port Royal canals are not in a straight-line same-width geometric pattern – they have curves and vary in canal width with wider bays. This allows for turning basins for larger yachts and gives it a little less of the man-made look. Where property owners have allowed the mangroves to grow in the riprap, it is also a more natural looking waterfront than the seawalls you find in canal systems for some waterfront communities.

    The Port Royal area, as most of Naples proper, south of Fifth Avenue and along Gulf Shore Blvd is as good as Forida ever gets, with a few east coast exceptions like Palm Beach. If you choose to live in Port Royal, you want to look at your Yacht and have it at your finger tips.
