TALIS PARK BREAKS GROUND ON PHASE 1 OF VYNE HOUSE COUNTRY CLUB

Vyne House to Elevate Club House Experience

NAPLES, Fla. (July 27, 2012) ─ Ushering in a new era in Naples country club living, Talis Park has broken ground on its much-anticipated new clubhouse, Vyne House, today announced, Syd Kitson,Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners, Talis Park’s developer.

With a track record spanning 18 years, Kitson & Partners is reinterpreting Naples luxury for a new era with an intriguing vision that aims to elevate the club experience. An approach to country club living that is more refined and relaxed and lacking in pretense and contrived airs. Vyne House, the social heart and soul of the master-planned community, embodies their forward thinking approach and is reflective of a lifestyle in step with Naples luxury living today.

Designed by the award-winning architectural firm Peacock + Lewis, the charming, multi-purpose village center will include a lively interplay of breezy indoor and outdoor spaces from terraces to courtyards to outdoor living rooms. Vyne House will be home to a spa, racquet club, fitness center, and café with stone oven-baked pizza, wine and coffee. Its adjacent Great Lawn will offer the perfect, picturesque setting for any occasion, from wine festivals to concerts and movie screenings.

Construction for Vyne House will encompass three phases. The initial phase will focus on the Vyne House Shops, inclusive of a deli, ice cream parlor, and café. The second phase will involve construction of a free-standing building that will house the community’s state-of-the-art spa. A world-class sports training facility featuring tennis and bocce will replace the community’s existing golf studio, and the creation of a business center and new home for the golf club will round out the construction process in its final stage.

“This is not your father’s club house. It is welcoming and inviting and frankly, ahead of its time. It is the antithesis of the imposing dark-paneled country club,” said Kitson. “The spirit of Talis Park and Vyne House is to offer an entirely new perspective on the active Naples lifestyle. One that celebrates today’s active, health-conscious, socially-connected lifestyles and renders irrelevant outdated rules and formalities,” said Kitson.

Conceived to become one of the finest golf club communities in the country, the 461-acre Talis Park is centered on an acclaimed Norman & Dye golf course. Drawing its inspiration from the great parks of Europe, its rolling landscape is dotted with olive and citrus trees, scenic lakes, and a montage of monuments, bridges and fountains imparting a sense of harmony. 

Since purchasing the property in 2011, Kitson & Partners has focused on creating an aesthetic and diverse architectural palette for Talis Park. This spring they will introduce a collection of three new neighborhoods offering an inviting network of meandering trails and pathways leading to the village center. Overlooking the water or championship golf course, three refreshingly distinct home collections will be built by the area’s top builders with no detail spared, offering free-flowing indoor/outdoor living spaces, beautiful views, and prices ranging from $700,000 to $2 million plus.

Talis Park, located at 16990 Livingston Road, is poised to become one of Florida’s premier luxury golf and residential destinations.
