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.

Some say the real estate market is slowing down, but not for Matt and Gisela Knauf, owners of the Knauf-Koenig Group. The company has broken ground on six custom homes in the first quarter of 2017. The houses span from Pelican Bay south to Port Royal with retail prices ranging from $4 to $10 million.
Naples based architectural firms, Stofft Cooney and Falcon Design, and interior design companies, Calusa Bay Design and Clive Daniel Home, are showcasing their talents on the custom homes that range from 5,000 square feet to more than 10,000 square feet.
Each home will feature four to five bedrooms, six to seven bathrooms and a three-car-garage along with many luxurious finishes that have become synonymous with a Knauf-Koenig Group project. Theater rooms, libraries, wine cellars and even a fly fishing room are just a few of the amenities. Outdoor living areas will be vast at every home with the pool and spa being the main focus. Add to all of this alfresco dining, summer kitchens and fire pits, and the homes’ exterior will be as luxurious as their interior.
With seven more homes well underway in the mid-construction phase, and seven recently completed, that puts the company in position to continue building off its 2016 record-breaking year.
Having broken into the highly competitive Port Royal market was another big accomplishment and one that Matt Knauf believes could be a game changer for his company. "Getting the opportunity to build in Port Royal was huge for us. We’re very thankful and honored to be chosen by the homeowner to build their custom home. Hopefully it will be the first of many to come in the future," he said.
Knauf-Koenig Group is one of the leading luxury homebuilders in Naples. As a licensed general contractor, they specialize in building one of the finest custom homes in the area. They have seen a steady rise over the past two decades to the top of their sector.
