NAPLES, Fla. (Oct. 24, 2012) Talis Park, a new 461-acre country club community centered on Naples’ acclaimed Norman & Dye golf course, has selected Harbourside Custom Homes as its newest participating builder, today announced Milton Flinn, Talis Park’s Chief Operating Officer.

Harbourside Custom Homes will be a key component of developer Kitson & Partners’ builder program at Talis Park. The firm will construct semi-custom homes in the Fairgrove neighborhood, the first of three new neighborhoods currently being introduced with home sites available immediately.

Family-owned and operated, Harbourside Custom Homes is known for fine craftsmanship, quality materials, timely completion, and attention to detail of each distinctive home. With more than 35 years of homebuilding expertise, Harbourside has been recognized with more than 200 design and residential construction awards, including the coveted Lee County Builder of the Year Award for two consecutive years.

Talis Park was conceived as one of the finest golf club communities in the country. Purchased in 2011, 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.

Talis Park and its participating builders are currently constructing three refreshing home collections reflecting European and Caribbean styles. 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. The Fairgrove neighborhood will offer homes between 3,400 and 4,000 square feet. Prices will begin at $1.3 million.

“We selected Harbourside Custom Homes to build at Talis Park because of their excellent reputation and client-focused approach to delivering homes with outstanding craftsmanship, superior attention to detail and unwavering commitment to client satisfaction,” said Flinn. 

“We are thrilled to come on board as one of Talis Park’s distinguished builders,” said Jerry Colton, co-owner, founding partner and CEO of Harbourside Custom Homes. “Talis Park is an exceptional community, and it is an ideal place for us to create and showcase the distinctive luxury homes upon which we have built our reputation.”

All three of Talis Park’s new neighborhoods will offer magnificent views and showcase an inviting network of meandering trails and pathways leading to the Vyne House, the village center and social heart and soul of the community. Vyne House will encourage residents and guests of Talis Park to enjoy an active, health-oriented lifestyle with a new state-of-the-art fitness center and spa, and a lively interplay of breezy terraces, courtyards and open living areas.
