MARCHING TO A DIFFERENT BEAT… TALIS PARK LAUNCHES GRAND OPENING SEASON THIS MARCH

NAPLES, Fla. (Feb. 28, 2013) ─From the beginning, Talis Park has marched to a different beat. The country club community – that is anything but your father’s golf club – today announced the upcoming official launch of the Garden House sales center and a series of events to celebrate its Grand Opening season kicking off this March.

The new Garden House sales center will offer one of the most technologically advanced visitor experiences in the country. Inspired by the lush gardens and orchards of Talis Park, Garden House will feature a high-tech, touch-screen center that invites buyers to interact with and explore Talis Park’s neighborhoods and its fresh palette of Spanish eclectic, Italian Renaissance and Colonial Caribbean architectural styles.

As part of its grand opening festivities, Talis Park will host a series of garden parties to celebrate the official launch of the 461-acre community, centered on the acclaimed Norman & Dye golf course, located in North Naples.

On March 14, a VIP Grand Opening reception will honor Talis Park’s builders, design professionals, owners, sales and development team members to thank them for their prominent role in the community’s successful opening. Cocktails and dinner will be served in true “Talis al fresco style,” under twinkling lights on the grounds of the Garden House sales center. On March 21, Talis Park will also host an invitation-only sneak peek Open House event at the Garden House welcoming the area’s leading brokers to experience the community’s friendly hospitality with exclusive tours of the park-like grounds. On March 22, a private outdoor soiree will celebrate Talis Park’s VIP’s ahead of the official grand opening weekend March 23-24. 

“We look forward to showcasing our new sales center and unmatched Southwest Florida lifestyle, and are very excited to celebrate this milestone in our development with our builders, residents, buyers and members of the real estate community,” said Milt Flinn, Chief Operating Officer at Talis Park.

The community's portfolio plans of park homes and custom estate residences will be built by Naples’ leading builders: Borelli Construction, Distinctive Communities, Divco Construction Corp., Fox Custom Builders, Gulfshore Homes, Harbourside Custom Homes, Harwick Homes, Imperial Homes of Southwest Florida, McGarvey Custom Homes, Randall Mitchell Companies and Sunwest Homes.

Playful, elegant and refined, Talis Park has re-envisioned luxury living in Naples by fashioning a boutique community dedicated to personal health and social vitality. In this walkable neighborhood, golf carts, bikes, and pedestrians outnumber cars. Custom estate homes and neighborhoods are centered around a mission-style clubhouse, Vyne House, which welcomes members and friends to come as they are – casual, formal or somewhere in between. Conceived by developer Kitson & Partners to be a series of charming buildings rather than the typical, massive clubhouse, Vyne House is connected by courtyards and covered loggias with a series of lifestyle-oriented spaces designed for everyday use. A neighborhood eatery, Fiona’s Market Café, with a wood-burning oven and market, will serve up fresh local fare including everything from croissants and lattes to fine wines and canapés. A series of boutique shops and a state-of-the-art fitness center encourage all members to enjoy an active and social lifestyle at the club. Phase I of Vyne House is currently under construction and will be completed this summer. 

Talis Park is poised to become one of Florida’s premier luxury golf and residential destinations. Kitson & Partners has spent more than a year creating a bold new vision to redefine the Naples country club experience into a contemporary interpretation with an inspired new clubhouse and a fresh architectural palette for the community. Offering free-flowing indoor/outdoor living spaces, the homes will overlook the water or championship golf course with prices ranging from the $700,000’s into the millions.
