WATERSIDE BUILDERS COMPLETES NEW DOWNTOWN COTTAGE
IN OLDE NAPLES

NAPLES, FL, July 8, 2021–   Waterside Builders, Inc., a luxury custom home builder in Naples, Florida, announces the completion of its newest home in Olde Naples. Located at 751 11th Avenue South, just steps from the exclusive shopping and dining of famed 3rd Street South Historic District and the beloved Crayton Cove marina and restaurants, this home features architectural design by Arcadia Design with interior finishes and furnishings from Ficarra Design Associates.

The two-story, four-bedroom, six bath, Olde Florida-inspired home design features a sweeping floor plan spanning 4,211 square feet under air plus an outdoor living and entertaining area encompassing its own private pool, courtyard, covered outdoor kitchen and living/dining areas for a total of 5,339 square feet of overall living space. A second-floor detached cabana showcases nightly sunset views with western exposure toward the Gulf of Mexico.

“This home was designed and built for the homeowner to enjoy the quintessential downtown Olde Naples lifestyle,” states Mike Assaad, owner of Waterside Builders. “The outdoor living and dining area are a natural extension of the interior space providing seamless flow from inside to outside. The alley-loaded garage is perfect to park the golf cart or bicycles after a day at the beach or downtown for lunch and shopping.”

Masterfully designed for the downtown lot dimension of 66- by 150-feet, the home presents a welcome entry porch opening into long interior views of the great room and beyond to the pool and outdoor pergola backdrop. Warm, neutral tones with touches of tropical elements create cozy surrounds throughout the entire home. The open floor plan includes a spacious 17- by 24-foot great room boasting pecky Cypress beams and custom fireplace wall flanked on opposite sides by a built-in bookshelf with decorative bronze metal rods and an art feature wall with built-in bench seating.  A full-length porcelain tile fireplace backdrop wall creates layers of texture. Outfitted with Sub Zero and Wolf appliances, the smartly designed kitchen opens to both the dining and great room allowing chefs and entertainers full view of the home while serving as the central hub of activity. Warm oak tones in cabinetry and flooring embrace the casual yet sophisticated vibe of Olde Naples.  “We are moving toward warmer tones in finishes and textures,” comments Morgan Scott of Ficarra Design. “The layers of organic, natural elements throughout this home create a pleasing, comfortable backdrop to highlight the natural beauty of the architecture and design.”

Just off the great room, with wide gallery windows, a 19- by 13-foot multifunction room can be utilized for an executive private office, student virtual learning room, or hobby studio. A convenient first floor master suite with private door entrance highlighting an art gallery nook includes a spacious 15- by 20-foot bedroom with sliding doors out to the pool and spa, separate walk-in closets, and additional storage closet for linens and accessories. Custom white-washed pecky Cypress vaulted ceiling with beams extends the space vertically. Suffused in natural light throughout the day, the master bath features a soaking tub, walk-in shower, and double vanity with a color palette of light grey, periwinkle blue and pops of white. A separate water closet offers privacy and convenience.

Two guest bedrooms await at the top of the iron baluster-lined stairway, each with its own private bath. An open loft living room allows for additional seating and relaxation to guests. The outdoor living space beckons year-round Southwest Florida living with a 10- by 35-foot pool, spa and soaking sun deck, dramatic pergola showcase backdrop, 9- by 13-foot dining and 15- by 16- living areas complete with two-toned stacked stone wall with enclosed Isokern fireplace.  The outdoor kitchen brings culinary possibilities al fresco with a 36” Alfresco stainless-steel grill, Blanco sink, undercounter refrigerator and prep area. A true separate pool bath allows for easy access while swimming or outdoor gathering.

Located just beyond the outdoor living, with private access via stairway, the second-floor cabana or guest suite opens out onto a western facing balcony toward the twinkling lights of Olde Naples and kaleidoscope sunsets. The suite, with its fun, vibrant mix of orange and navy blues, includes a private bath, wet bar, and double closets. A two-car garage is located below the cabana and opens onto a tucked-away alley entrance allowing for the front of the home to stay unencumbered from traffic.
