The Isles of Collier Preserve is underway, this long-awaited new Naples community on the last large prime piece of the downtown real estate in Naples has broken ground. Located just to the east of Naples Bay, the Isles of Collier Preserve is a waterfront community being built by the Minto Group, set on 2300 acres of land, over half of which is to be left as a natural habitat for Florida wildlife. The other half is to become one of Naples most sought after new communities, with 1600 waterfront homes set around a series of lakes and rivers. This unique community will have a resort style pool, tennis courts, and the usual fitness facilities. But there are a few things that make the Isles at Collier Preserve unique, one of them being it will not only have hiking trails but also kayaking trails around its waterways. Residents will also have access to the Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club, a full-service marina with boat slips and access to the Gulf of Mexico.
They say that location is one of the major things to look for when buying real estate, the Isles of Collier Preserve has just that, a great location. Not only will residents be able to access the water but the community is only a stone's throw from downtown Naples and the Gulf Beaches. Although many new communities are under construction at the moment such as Montebello at Coco Lakes, a luxury enclave close to downtown Naples, but without all the usual high association fees, and the Esplanade on Immokalee Road, I believe the Isles at Collier Preserve is the one to watch with probably the most Naples waterfront homes in one community. The sales center will be open in the fall of 2013 with new model homes following in early 2014.
