Newly built Naples, Florida waterfront mansion sets 2017 record.
A newly built waterfront estate in exclusive Port Royal has set a record as the most expensive home to sell in Naples this year. The waterfront home at 3750 Rum Row fetched $17.7 million, eclipsing last year’s most lucrative sale made through the Naples Area Board of Realtors’ Multiple Listing Service. In 2016 the most expensive home sold in Naples, also in Port Royal, brought a cool $15.15 million.The home was built on speculation, meaning a buyer wasn’t lined up. Designed by Stofft-Cooney Architecture, it was built by BCB Homes in Naples for an internationally based investment group, which put it on the market about six months ago.
The six-bedroom estate features warm interiors by Ficarra Design Associates that accent its modern architectural design. There are eight full-sized bathrooms and two half-sized ones, as well as two laundry rooms and two garages, each one big enough for two cars.
The expansive floor plan includes a grand living room with a fireplace and large floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the home’s outdoor living space, pool and waterway. Each guest bedroom offers a uniquely designed ensuite, or attached, bathroom.
Other stand-out features include:
- A magnificent foyer adorned with a three-tiered 40-inch-high by 39-inch-deep John-Richard agate sliced chandelier in a gold-leaf finish.
- An artfully designed floating staircase.
- A chef’s kitchen with Bernier cabinets, two Sub-Zero refrigerators and two islands.
- A modern glass wine room that can fit for more than 400 bottles.
- A private boat dock.
Additionally, the home includes a gym, a wine bar, a gaming room, an entertainment area with a 75-inch flat-screen television, and an elevator. There’s also a Nantucket-inspired guest house.
The home sits on nearly an acre of land on the southern edge of Hidden Bay overlooking Man-O-War Cove, with 170 feet of frontage on the bay.
Outside the main home, designers created a tropical oasis for entertaining, dining and hanging out by the pool. There’s an outdoor kitchen with an oversized gas fired barbecue, Evo grill and wine refrigerator.
A saltwater pool offers wide-water views of Man-of-War Cove. A pool cabana includes a full-sized bathroom.
