Demolition Paves Way For First Phase of Talis Park’s Inspired New Country Club

NAPLES, Fla. (May 7, 2012) ─ Demolishing the former Tuscany Reserve country club remnants, Talis Park announced today that it is paving the way for the much-anticipated construction of its new clubhouse, Vyne House, which is set to break ground on June 1.

A charming, multi-purpose village center, Vyne House will embody the new spirit of Naples luxury that developer Kitson & Partners has envisioned for Talis Park, a 450-acre master-planned golf community centered on an acclaimed Norman & Dye golf course. Kitson & Partners acquired the property, formerly Tuscany Reserve, last year that was conceived as one of the finest golf club communities in the country.

Providing a fresh interpretation of Naples living, one that is more intriguing, refined, relaxed and healthful, Vyne House will serve as the social heart and soul of the community. With a lively interplay of breezy indoor and outdoor spaces, terraces, courtyards and open living areas, the new clubhouse will encourage residents and guests of the community to enjoy an active, health-oriented lifestyle.

When completed, 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.

“Vyne House will not resemble your father’s country club. It is welcoming and inviting, and frankly, ahead of its time. It is the antithesis of the imposing dark-paneled country club, and our residents are ecstatic,” said Milton Flinn, Chief Operating Officer of Talis Park. “The vision for Talis Park and Vyne House is to offer an entirely new perspective on Naples luxury living.”

For the past year, Kitson & Partners has focused on creating an aesthetic and diverse architectural palette forTalisPark. This summer, it will introduce three refreshingly-distinct home collections with new neighborhoods, offering an inviting network of meandering trails and pathways leading to the village center. Overlooking the water or championship golf course, the home collections will be constructed by the area’s top builders with no detail spared. Homes will include free-flowing indoor/outdoor living spaces, beautiful views, and prices ranging from $700,000 to $2 million plus.

TalisPark, located at 16990 Livingston Road, is poised to become one of Florida’s premier luxury golf and residential destinations. Sales will officially launch for TalisParkwhen its grand opening takes place in 2013.
