People called Calusa Bay Development crazy for knocking down a home in Pelican Bay to make room for a brand new custom home; but it worked. And it has continued to work.

Now on their fifth and sixth projects together, with a seventh to follow soon after, the team of Calusa Bay Development, builder Knauf-Koenig Group and the architectural firm Stofft Cooney seem to have found their niche in Pelican Bay and have raised the bar for luxury living in one of Naples original planned communities.

Ready for immediate occupancy is a custom home at 704 Hollybriar Lane. It has 5,500 square feet under air and is set up for the entertainer or for those who enjoy the Naples lifestyle of indoor-outdoor living. This estate home comes with an open concept floor plan featuring three living areas with vaulted, tongue-and-groove cypress ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, wide-plank washed oak floors and Knauf-Koenig Group’s signature woodwork throughout. Recently published in Florida Design magazine, this custom home is the new standard for luxury living in Pelican Bay.

As you enter this home through the bleached mahogany custom front door, your eyes immediately focus on the great room’s glass wall that overlooks the 45-foot lap pool and adjoining spa flanked by fire bowls. The west wing of the home features a guest room with an en suite bathroom, a laundry area, a separate dining room, and a luxurious kitchen and family room that flow into an outdoor living area complete with remote controlled screens and shutters, a fireplace, television, outdoor kitchen and al fresco dining all in a private, lushly landscaped tropical oasis. The well-appointed chef’s kitchen features custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, a 126-inch island, butler’s pantry and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.

The east side of the home offers two additional guest rooms with en suite bathrooms, a den and a master bedroom with a spa-like bathroom that features custom cabinetry in a driftwood finish, Kohler fixtures and a freestanding cast-iron soaking tub. A view of the pool and spa from large windows completes the tranquil feel to the master suite designed in neutral tones.

One street north of Hollybriar Lane is 702 Tamarind Court ,where currently Calusa Bay Development’s second project is underway and approaching completion. This lakefront estate home is designed to impress by Stofft Cooney Architects. The 5,100-square-foot under air home has an open concept floor plan featuring both an indoor and outdoor great room, a club room/office, four bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a three-car-garage.

A Davanti custom made front door opens to the foyer that looks out through a 10-foot folding glass wall by Solar Innovations to the 50-foot lap pool, 8-foot infinity spa and a lake view. Wide plank Italian oak floors, beautifully crafted woodwork and floor-to-ceiling windows are prevalent in all of the bedrooms and throughout the home. The master suite overlooks the pool and has two complete en suite bathrooms with dressing room/closet.

For the chef of the home, a lavish kitchen is complete with a butler’s pantry and breakfast nook as well as Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, 2-inch mitered quartzite countertops and custom cabinetry.

This home also features a Vantage lighting control system and pre-wiring for AV and sound that can be controlled by an iPhone. Impeccably furnished by Calusa Bay Design, no detail has been overlooked to create this custom dream home.

Pelican Bay offers: 570 acres of mangroves and estuaries, 43 acres of parks, recreation areas, beachfront facilities and boardwalks, 3 miles of private beach with beachfront dining, 27 holes of championship golf and 18 Har-Tru tennis courts divided among two complexes.

Slated for a summer completion, their new two-story clubhouse will provide enhanced experiences for members in all aspects of dining, golfing and socializing.
