Real Estate Listings / Chris
I originally sold this home (see the MLS listing here) to some great clients and they had quite a vision for what they would do to it. The home was in amazing shape but was simply dated. These buyers have transformed this home into a work of art and I’m proud to have it back on the market for sale as my customers move on to the next chapter in their lives.
When you turn on to 31st Street Northwest from Golden Gate Boulevard, it really hits you just how close-in this home is to Collier Boulevard/951–it is only one mile to get there! You can walk to Big Cypress Elementary in about 6 minutes. In fact, this home is so close-in that it is actually zoned for Gulf Coast High School and Oakridge Middle!
When you turn onto the paved driveway with a paved turnaround area, you go just a bit and suddenly you’re surrounded by trees. The privacy is really amazing. One of my pet-peeves is when lots are fully cleared in the Estates and the neighbors are adjacent. You don’t want people staring in your windows or you to have to stare into theirs. People move to the Estates for privacy and this home has it! It’s really great having that much privacy when you’re in this home’s swimming pool and spa.
When you open the front door, you’ll instantly notice the luxury vinyl plank flooring and working fireplace. It’s so rare to see a fireplace that works here in Naples but this one sure does. You’ll see the seating and dining areas and a view out of the back slider into the pool area and large back yard. There are two guest bedrooms to the right and a master bedroom split to the left, just past the family room.
The kitchen is a masterpiece. There is built-in shelving for spices and cookbooks, newer stainless steel appliances, a huge farmhouse sink with pendant lighting above and my absolute favorite feature–the backsplash. The subway tile backsplash is oversized and looks absolutely amazing against the butcher block counters. Even though there is a lot of cabinetry for storage, there are additional shelving units that look so beautiful against the backsplash. Just imagine cooking in this kitchen and being able to see what is going on in the back yard or pool.
Right at the front of the home is the family room with some really nice features. First, it can be completely closed off from the rest of the house by shutting the french doors. See the barn doors in the picture below? They’re awesome! The one on the right gives access to a huge walk-in closet. It’s perfect for storing board or video games, blankets, or anything you might want access to in your media room. The barn door on the left provides access to a beautiful, fully-remodeled bathroom with a gorgeous vanity and tiled shower. It’s one of my favorite rooms in the house. I really like the vaulted ceilings there as they make the room feel bigger than it already is!
The last room I’d like to point out is the master bedroom of course. The sellers have a king-sized bed and still have so much space surrounding it. It has lots of natural light and one of the best walk-in closets I’ve seen in ages. Really, this isn’t a walk-in closet… it’s its own room. There are great built-ins for organization, a window for more natural light, and plenty of room for your dresser, clothes, shoes and more.
Let’s go outside. There is a pool that is quite a bit bigger than what you’re used to seeing in Naples and it also features a spa as well. What’s really nice is that there is this large pool deck plus a huge screened-in lanai. What’s better than that? It really makes evening entertaining nice since you can swim (without an HOA telling you that you can’t) and have some dinner outside without worrying about any bugs.
Further back on the property is a shed, a fire pit and the sellers even constructed a movie screen when COVID hit so they could enjoy staying at home even more. The area is fenced and ready for new owners with dogs.
I absolutely love this house and all of the features the sellers have added to it. I really can’t believe how secluded and private the lot is and how large the swimming pool is. It’s one of those homes that you need to tour. Even if you don’t buy it, you’ll see so many great upgrades that it will give you ideas for your own home.
