The latest project by Calusa Bay Development, builder Knauf-Koenig Group and architect Stofft Cooney in Pelican Bay has been revealed.

Ready for immediate occupancy, this custom estate home at 705 Hollybriar Lane has 5,352 square feet under air and is set to take advantage of its views and allow the homeowner to embrace indoor-outdoor living.

This estate home features an open concept floor plan with three living areas, Knauf-Koenig Group’s signature woodwork and beams throughout, and a vaulted, tongue-and-groove cypress ceiling in the great room. Four bedrooms plus a den, six bathrooms and a three-car-garage round out this home situated on a cul-de-sac.

As you enter through the Sapele mahogany custom front door by Davanti is the living room. A glass wall allows the homeowner to take in the views of the 40-foot long lap pool flanked with fire bowls, adjoining spa and the lake beyond. A feature wall, with textured wallpaper and custom woodwork, can house a piece of art or a television.

"Now on our eighth project in Pelican Bay, we had to add some new characteristics to our design arsenal and this feature wall exudes just that," describes Randi Scott, design director for Calusa Bay Design.

With an open floor plan, the home flows easily from the living room to great room concept of kitchen and family room. The chef’s kitchen, butler’s pantry and separate bar are set up for entertaining and feature floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, quartzite countertops and Sub-Zero/Wolf appliances. The family room leads to the outdoor living area complete with remote controlled screens and shutters, outdoor kitchen, al fresco dining and fireplace.

Three guest rooms with en suite bathrooms, as well as a master suite were designed as a retreat and relax after a day at the nearby Waterside Shops or at Pelican Bay’s private beach. The master suite features pool and lake views from the bedroom, his and her closets, and a spa-like bathroom with Kohler fixtures and a freestanding cast-iron soaking tub. 

High-end finishes and upgrades were installed including hidden air-conditioning vents, Vantage lighting control system, wide plank Italian oak floors, Andersen 400 series windows and a Solar Innovations folding glass wall.

The home is finished with a classic contemporary furnishing package by Calusa Bay Design. This home was under contract in less than 30 days. Calusa Bay, Knauf-Koenig Group and Stofft Cooney Architects have multiple projects in the works.

Knauf-Koenig Group has completed a home at 3120 Crayton Road in The Moorings neighborhood of Naples. Listed with Abbie Valentine of John R. Wood Properties for $3.925 million, the first open house was quite the draw as a steady flow of people toured the home. It is the latest of several luxurious residences built by the custom home builder in the highly sought after beach and boating community.

The traditional coastal style home, designed by Falconer Jones of Falcon Design Inc., features five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a sprawling single level design encompassing 4,037 square feet under air and 6,079 total square feet. The open floor plan featuring Legno Bastone European oak wide plank flooring allows for effortless transitions from indoor to outdoor living; perfect for entertaining family and friends.

The great room flows into the well-appointed chef’s kitchen featuring Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, quartzite counter tops and Signature Collection custom cabinets by Ruffino Cabinetry. Just off the kitchen is a butler’s pantry with Bosch appliances and ample storage, as well as a wet bar with Sub-Zero wine refrigerator.

The master suite's privacy and sophistication are enhanced by the home automation system that allows the roll- down shades to be controlled by the simple push of a button. The master bathroom, with driftwood finished custom cabinets, marble counter tops and a freestanding bathtub, has a spa-like feel to it.

In addition to the shades, the ELAN home automation package controls the home’s surveillance cameras and audio/video features

The four guest rooms all have en suite bathrooms and walk in closets, as well as ceilings featuring Knauf-Koenig Group’s signature wood work with decorative beams and tongue and groove.

The covered lanai with a stained cypress tongue and groove vaulted ceiling is accessed by three sets of French doors in the great room or the Andersen sliding glass door in the kitchen. Retractable screens and shutters, summer kitchen and outdoor fireplace round out the outdoor living area surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and a pool and spa.

Other features of the home include a custom mahogany front door by Davanti, Andersen 400 series windows and doors and custom designed doors for the three-car-garage. The third garage has all of the provisions to easily convert it into a detached guest suite.

Energy-efficiency is abundant in this home with a top of its class tankless water heater, Lenox a/c units with variable speeds and high SEER ratings and spray foam insulation to keep the humidity and moisture out.

Close to downtown and the beach, The Moorings has been a highly desirable area ever since its development in the early 1960s. Currently in a transition period, the area is receiving a face lift with many of the older homes being torn down down to be replaced with new residences. Each home in The Moorings is eligible for membership to the private beach park.

For 20 years Knauf-Koenig Group has been building custom homes and has earned a reputation for excellence and quality. Visit www.kkgbuild.com.
