Construction is underway on a new Cedar Key design home at Sapphire Cove, an intimate residential community being developed by FL Star off Collier Boulevard in South Naples.
“The demand for single family homes in Naples is growing, even as the number of available homes on the market is down, according to Board of Realtors reports,” said Jim Borden, professional sales representative with FL Star. “We have started construction on the Cedar Key and several other homes in Sapphire Cove to meet the need of buyers who are ready to move.”
Borden notes that the Cedar Key has been consistently popular at Sapphire Cove, with rapid sales of the design.
“We presented the design as our furnished model, and the most recent Cedar Key model sold upon completion, with the immediate sale of another Cedar Key prior to construction, ” he said.
The home features a contemporary open concept floor plan with many dramatic details. Double doors of the Cedar Key open into a wide foyer leading into the spacious great room, dining area and island kitchen. The master suite offers two walk-in closets, a double vanity, a slipper soaking tub, separate walk-in shower and private water closet. The master suite has its own private entry to the outdoor living area and pool.
The study, which features a double-door entry, is located near the front of the home providing convenience for use as a home office. One of the guest bedrooms is created as a private suite with its own full bath. The second guest bedroom has direct access to a full bath which may also be accessed from the foyer. There is also a powder room which doubles as a pool bath.
The Cedar Key has 2,619 square feet of air-conditioned living space and with two-car garage and covered lanai, the home encompasses 3,535 total square feet. Pricing on the Cedar Key design begins at $591,900.
“FL Star allows buyers to make changes to designs in our portfolio of home plans to create a home uniquely suited to their lifestyle,” Borden said. “That is a special attraction to many families and something many builders do not allow.”
A selection of eight home plans that are designed to accommodate the lifestyle of a variety of families is available at Sapphire Cove, with both single-story and two-story designs, ranging from a spacious home with three bedrooms plus a study in 1,915 square feet to an expansive plan with four bedrooms and three and one-half baths in 3,178 square feet. Pricing begins at $529,900.
The heart of Sapphire Cove activity is the community clubhouse, where neighbors may gather to enjoy a rigorous workout in the state-of-the-art fitness center, challenging yoga or a refreshing swim in the resort-style pool.
The location of Sapphire Cove offers residents an abundance of enrichment and educational opportunities in addition to those on site. Nearby Serenity Park and the Collier Boulevard bike trail provide options for the outdoor enthusiast. The 80-acre campus of Florida Southwestern State College is just down the road, where residents may take a course or simply enjoy sports or a performance. And for medical care, Physicians Regional Hospital and an array of other medical facilities are located right on Collier Boulevard.
