The adage “location, location, location” has never been more true than at Mangrove Bay, an exclusive community of only 53 luxury single-family homes perfectly situated along the Gordon River in Old Naples.
Naples is often referred to as the jewel of Florida’s Gulf Coast, and rightfully so. Known for its white sugar sand beaches, warm Gulf waters, and spectacular sunsets, our city boasts the feeling of Old Florida, an affinity for appreciating Florida’s natural wonders, while offering big-city sophistication.
Mangrove Bay is adjacent to the City’s Gordon River Greenway preserve and proposed Baker Park, yet we’re just moments from the 5th Avenue South and 3rd Street South shopping and dining districts, Waterside Shoppes and Venetian Village on the Bay, and blocks from the miles of sugar-sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a lifestyle highly prized by both year-round and seasonal residents, who live along what is consistently voted one of Florida’s best beaches, and in a place voted “Best U.S. Destination for Luxury Travelers” by USA Today readers. The publication also named Naples “America’s Fourth-Happiest City”!
Naples is home to more than 80 golf courses and recognized by industry leaders as one of the “Golf Capitals of the World.” We also have an impressive collection of parks, the Naples City Zoo and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, and the Botanical Gardens of Naples.
On the cultural side, Naples offers vast and diverse cultural resources including Artis of Naples, the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra, and Gallery Row, an extensive collection of art galleries featuring the works of celebrated international and local artists. We’re home to the Winter Wine Festival, considered one of most successful charity wine auctions in the nation (raising more than $123 million for local children’s charities since its founding in 2001), and “Cars on Fifth,” an annual fundraising event on Fifth Avenue South, sponsored by the Naples Chapter of the Ferrari Club, showcasing an impressive collection of luxury and exotic cards admired by the most discerning car enthusiasts.
With every home at Mangrove Bay comes a private boat slip, allowing you to step from your door to your dock, and the wonders of the water that await. Kayak or stand-up paddleboard your way through the peaceful mangroves along our vast inland waterways, jet ski along the river and into Naples Bay, or step aboard your boat to fish the backwaters or the Gulf of Mexico. At Mangrove Bay, you have immediate access to every water-based activity right from your own personal dock step, as well as an owners-only boat ramp adjacent to the Concierge Center.
There are 20 different one- and two-story floor plan designs offered – as well as four soon-to-unveil three-story Cove Residences with unique built-in boat garages. Three sophisticated model homes are now open to introduce you to the Mangrove Bay experience: The Keewaydin II and Amelia III Waterfront Residences, and the Sanibel III Courtyard Residence.
This is the perfect time to consider a dwelling with these unmatched views. The Amelia III Waterfront Residence, temporarily the Mangrove Bay Sales Center, is a four-bedroom plus den, four-and-½ bath home with all primary living spaces (including the master suite, two guest suites, and a private den) located on the ground level and a private-entry guesthouse above the garage. The guest cottage features a generous sitting room,
scaled-to-fit kitchenette, private bedroom and bath area, and private balcony.
At approximately 3,640 SF under air, this model evokes a classic seaside cottage, with intricate trim details, a grand beamed, tongue-and-groove ceiling in the great room, and built-in upholstered bench seats which flank the whitewashed brick fireplace. The “coastal cottage” décor is finished in watery shades of blues and crisp whites grounded with traditional heart pine wood floors for a comfortable feel. Other key design elements include traditional bead board accents, bench seat reading nooks, cottage-style barn doors, and a second fireplace in the outdoor living area. This gorgeous model home is available for purchase.
The two-story Sanibel III Courtyard Residence offers a four-bedroom, four-and-½ bath design with approximately 3,331 SF under air, including a private-entry guest cottage with its own spacious deck above the rear-entry garage.
The “respite reclaimed” beach-themed aesthetic of the Sanibel mixes dark, light, and weathered wood appointments with soft taupe and cream hues, and natural fabrics that perfectly complement its limed oak wood floors, reclaimed wood accents, tongue-and-groove ceiling detail, barn doors, two-story cupola, French doors, transom windows, and custom moldings and cabinetry.
Its ground-floor master suite includes corner-pocketing sliding doors, which open to the lanai surrounded by tropical landscaping, a soaring 1 ½-story covered outdoor living area with fireplace, and a pool and spa with a gently flowing water feature. This spacious model is also available for sale.
The Keewaydin II Waterfront Residence – which is already pre-sold with leaseback – has a total of four bedrooms and four-and- ½ baths, a second-floor loft area, and a private-entry guest house above the garage, offering over 3,700 SF under air. Its soaring two-story great room with a unique nickel gap wood ceiling has a focal point stone fireplace balanced by a stained entertainment built-in bar at the opposite end of the space. The kitchen’s exposed stainless steel hood boasts a quartz backsplash, the same quartz used in its island countertop.
The Keewaydin’s ground-floor master suite offers an oversized sitting area with corner-pocket sliding doors overlooking the lanai, outdoor living space, pool, spa, and Gordon River. The master bath has a free-standing tub, oversized shower, and a separate makeup vanity and morning kitchen.
Every residence at Mangrove Bay features custom-crafted Ruffino cabinetry, Wolf/Subzero appliance packages, natural gas feeds, private custom-designed pool areas, and more. Homeowners have the benefit of resort-style living with an on-site Concierge Center, an owners-only boat ramp, and – of course — their own private boat slip. Complete pool care, landscaping, and dock maintenance are just a few of the services offered.
Touring the model residences is the best way to experience Mangrove Bay and the extensive thought that went into their conception. The model décor is by Freestyle Interiors, designed by MHK
Architecture & Planning, built by Lotus Construction, LLC, and exclusively marketed by Paradise Realty of Naples, LLC.
