Knauf-Koenig Group's new custom luxury home in The Moorings


This brand new construction at 617 Binnacle Drive in the Moorings neighborhood of Naples has just been completed by prolific custom builder Knauf-Koenig Group. Drawn by Falconer Jones and listed by Michael Lawler of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty for $3.995M, this residence exudes elegance with European white oak Legno Bastone flooring throughout.


From the gracious foyer, one steps into the open concept great room in which Knauf-Koenig Group has focused their usual meticulous attention to luxury appointments, finishes, and enhancements. The home features a solid masonry construction and extensive interior mill work, signatures of all Knauf-Koenig Group custom homes. There are 5 bedrooms and 5 and ½ bathrooms in the 4,312-square-foot under air home. With a third of an acre lot, 3 garage bays with epoxy-coated flooring and carriage house impact-rated garage doors, and a 500-gallon buried propane tank, this home spares no expense on the finest construction details.


Glass interior door transoms, a premium Anderson 400 Series window package, and hidden air vents throughout are just a few more of the many details that illustrate Knauf-Koenig Group’s attention to detail. Stained cypress tongue-and-groove ceilings and decorative beams, shell reef tile floors in the bathrooms, and built-in interior privacy shades give the interior an added touch of luxury.


The great room flows effortlessly into the well-appointed chef’s kitchen, featuring quartzite countertops, and custom cabinetry designed by Ruffino Cabinetry. Of course the appliance package is perfectly befitting of a gourmet chef with Wolf and Subzero as the brands of choice. Kohler plumbing features are also a ‘must,’ and walking through this stunning home, you can immediately see that Knauf-Koenig Group specifies only the finest products in their homes.


The master bedroom is a private retreat to relax the day away while enjoying calming views of the outdoor oasis. The spa-like master bath includes a generous soaking tub, expansive shower with glass mosaic tile, and a spacious walk-in closet large enough for even the most dedicated fashionista.


The large outdoor living area, flanked by cypress Bahama shutters, is ideal for entertaining with mosaic Sonoma glass waterline tile and a plaster shade of Bay Pearl Blue. The shell stone exterior pool deck adds to the high-end luxury finishes throughout, as does the high efficiency gas pool heater and variable speed Pentair pool pump. In fact, all the pool equipment can be controlled by automated iPhone-, iPad-, desktop-friendly software system. The icing on the cake is a 48-inch exterior stainless steel fireplace that completes the outdoor area and encourages at different times both entertaining and relaxation.


Add to all of this, the spray foam insulation on the roof and exterior block walls, the roll-down hurricane shutters on the lanai which alleviate the need for furniture removal during a storm, and roll-down insect screens for pure comfort, and Knauf-Koenig Group has created another top quality product on today’s market.


Knauf-Koenig Group is also extremely mindful of energy efficiency in the homes they build. Hot water heaters have come a long way over the years, and at the top of its class is the tankless, gas-fired, hot water heater with built-in recirculation lines providing the homeowner with on-demand hot water used in this Binnacle Drive home. Combined with Lenox A/C units with their variable speed, high efficiency, and high SEER rating, these best-of-class systems give this residence the capability to fully maximize energy. For a homeowner who wants the best, understand quality, and expects luxury, this home delivers the finest craftsmanship.
