NAPLES, FL, October 1, 2021–   Waterside Builders, Inc., a luxury custom home builder in Naples, Florida, announced construction is underway on a new waterfront residence in Olde Naples. Located at 595 16th Avenue South, on one of Olde Naples’ private most avenues just minutes from Crayton Cove, the home features architectural design by Stofft Cooney Architects and interior design by Debra Yelner of DLY Design.

The two-story residence, spanning close to 6,000 square feet under air, evokes a contemporary coastal design with single-panel dark-trimmed windows, mahogany louvered doors, and streamlined exterior light fixtures. Guests are welcomed in the circular drive opening into to the ascending steps and covered front entry. The open concept great room, dining room and kitchen provide unbroken flow from conversational to culinary pursuits. A hidden service kitchen and utility room are located just off the main kitchen for easy access to entertaining prep and clean up. The great room is framed by expansive sliding doors with views of the Aqualane Shores waterfront. “The interior aesthetic of this new home complements the contemporary, exterior architecture,” states Debra Yelner of DLY Design. One unique feature, a club room, located adjacent to the main great room, offers a private refuge for cocktails and conversation with a full bar, media center, and open views of the pool and spa. A guest bedroom with en suite bath as well as a separate flex room are also located on the main floor.

The owner’s suite, positioned at the far end of the main floor with its own private entry doorway, showcases a sizeable bedroom with conversation and reading nook, owner’s bath with two separate vanities, soaking tub, walk-in shower, and private water closet, and two individual walk-in closets. “A sophisticated palette of ceruse millwork and floors, patinated brass accents, and dramatic, yet soothing colors are present throughout the residence,” adds Yelner.

A boater’s dream, the outdoor living and entertaining areas all overlook the 100’ frontage of Olde Naples waterfront. A contemporary, elongated swimming pool with wet sun shelf and spa beckon sun worshipers after a day on the boat. Grill aficionados will appreciate the summer kitchen with bbq, sink prep area and sizable island surrounded by comfortable seating for guests. A separate dining and living area under cover but still outdoors presents more space for lounging and relaxing in the shade, while still being part of the treasured tropical ambiance.

Upstairs, guests may retreat to one of the three suites, with one designated as a VIP suite featuring gracious oversized accommodations, walk-in closet, and dual vanities in the bathroom.  A second-floor lounge is styled for casual conversation and additional media viewing. Visitors will delight in the upstairs beverage bar allowing for morning coffee and evening sundowners all without having to visit the main floor kitchen.

“We find that many of our homeowners desire the same amount of privacy and convenience for their guests as they do themselves,” states builder Mike Assaad, owner of Waterside Builders. “The upstairs lounge surrounded by three guest suites, some boasting walk-out balconies and waterfront views, are just as enticing as the main owner’s suite. This design really allows for pure comfort for anyone staying in the home.”
