Divco to begin new home in Prato neighborhood at Talis Park
New construciton continues at Talis Park for a brand new property owner....
Divco Construction Corp. is poised to begin construction of a 5,218-square-foot under air private residence in Talis Park’s Prato estate home neighborhood. The home will be situated on a southern exposure site that showcases Prato’s signature water and golf course views.
Limited to 24 homesites, Prato offers Park Estate Homes built by Talis Park’s participating custom builders that are the flagship residences of Talis Park. Prato’s one-of-a-kind residences range from 4,500 to well over 20,000 square feet on 125-by-175-foot homesites and start at $2.5 million. Eight estate homesites remain available in Prato.
Designed by Tony Boyatt of Boyatt Design in Naples and Blue Ridge, Ga., the floor plan of Divco’s estate residence features four bedrooms, four full baths, two half baths, formal living and dining rooms, a wet bar, study, craft room, double-island kitchen, family room, and a four-car garage. Ninety-degree pocketing sliders open the family room to an outdoor living area that includes a large covered lanai with a coffered ceiling, raised bar, full summer kitchen and a fireplace. The lanai wraps around the home’s living space and provides covered access to the outdoor entertainment area from the master suite on the opposite side of the residence. A spa, water feature and pool are surrounded by a large terrace.
“The view corridors afforded by the homesites in Prato are exceptional and this home has been designed to take full advantage of the view,” said Alan Foster, vice president of sales and marketing for Divco Construction Corp. “From the foyer, visitors will look through the living room’s tall, architectural windows to the pool and water feature and then to a lake and the golf course. The exterior of the home is designed in a classical Italian villa style with cast keystone details that are elegant in their simplicity. The covered entry includes classical architectural features. All in all, the style and lines of the home will be perfectly suited to the Prato neighborhood’s prestigious ambiance to which estate homebuyers continue to gravitate.”
Beginning in the foyer, coffered ceiling details are used to define the different spaces in the home. In the living room, the ceiling detail is curved at one end to draw the eye through the curved glass wall to the spectacular view. Other features in the living room include a fireplace with a tall mantle treatment and a wet bar that is configured to also serve the dining room and family room. Another designed coffered ceiling detail is included in the dining room where double doors open to a terrace that is incorporated in the home’s covered entry design.
The kitchen’s outer island includes a raised bar with seating for eight. An inner island and long perimeter counter tops provide an abundance of work space. The kitchen also includes a large walk-in pantry. The adjacent family room offers 462 square feet and is designed for indoor/outdoor entertaining. Two walls feature pocketing sliders that open to the outdoors which offers a fireplace and dining area and the pool’s water feature.
Divco’s penchant for incorporating the outdoors in the home’s design is also reflected in a walled terrace situated at one end of a long central hallway that leads to the craft room and three guest suites. A window provides a view of the terrace’s greenery and floods the hallway with natural light. A French door in the middle suite opens to the terrace and offers guests a private place to relax. Two of the guest suites feature baths with a radius walk-in shower.
Double French doors open the master bedroom to the home’s covered lanai, outdoor living area and pool. Windows in the bedroom’s sitting area overlook the pool, water and golf course view and continue the emphasis on bringing natural light into the residence. The master bath features a free-standing tub and an octagonal double-entry walk-in shower.
Divco anticipates completion of the home within nine to 10 months after construction commences.
Prato is one of Talis Park’s five neighborhoods, four of which offer the possibility of living in a parklike setting, the other in a maintenance-free environment within walking distance of the community’s village center. This “in the park” or “in the village” approach reflects developer Kitson & Partners’ commitment to creating a New Fashioned community where every aspect of country club living is relevant to the residents’ daily lives.
The neighborhoods are being crafted by southwest Florida’s finest custom homebuilders and present all-new home designs in a fresh palette of Spanish eclectic, Italian Renaissance and Colonial Caribbean architectural styles. The new designs are the result of a design partnership with Stofft Cooney and Herscoe Hajjar Architects that has produced more than 20 Portfolio Plans exclusively for Talis Park. The availability of the Portfolio Plans provides an array of newly-created designs priced from the $700s into the millions.
Talis Park’s village center will include Vyne House, the central gathering place of the community. Vyne House will consist of a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day. Phase I is under construction and will be completed in September. Phase I includes completion of Vyne House Shops that will feature Fiona’s Market Cafe, the Core Fitness Center and the Esprit Spa.
The Talis Park Golf Studio is also expanding to triple its dining capacity and create an outdoor dining and lounge experience that will overlook the driving range. The project includes a new covered outdoor dining venue and covered outdoor bar pavilion, both of which will be completed in June.
Talis Park’s Garden House sales center is at 16990 Livingston Road in North Naples.
