For some Floridians, nothing beats living on the waterfront. And for some individuals in the Naples area, the Aqualane Shores neighborhood is the perfect place to do that. You’ll find Aqualane Shores tucked between Olde Naples and Port Royal—with easy access to the Fifth Avenue and Third Street shopping districts and some of Naples’ best restaurants.
Residents are close to Naples Pier, one of the city’s most popular landmarks, where they can cast a line from the lengthy wooden dock that extends out into the Gulf of Mexico or (no permit required!) catch a romantic sunset on an evening walk, or find the perfect restaurant along the promenade.
For those who want to enjoy a taste of Florida wildlife, the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is also close by. The sanctuary is dedicated to the preservation of endangered species of animals and to increasing awareness about he decline of several species of avian creatures and mammals. Visitors can explore an expansive boardwalk and come face-to-face with several species of birds (including some endangered species). The 13,000-acre swamp is home to many different types of animals—including the Florida panther.
For many, however, access to the waterfront is the big draw. The deep-water canals and direct access to Naples Bay and the Gulf of Mexico make it an ideal location for those who enjoy large powerboats or sailboats. Many of the homes feature deep-water docks and even boat lifts.
The Aqualane Shores neighborhood has a history that dates back to 1949, when Naples officially became a city. Because of its prime waterfront location, it became a very desirable area (especially for owners of larger boats). As a result, many of the 350 homes in the neighborhood have been completely rebuilt—or dramatically remodeled. The desirability of the area has obviously affected home prices. Some of the original homes in the area list in the range of $1.7 Million and up.
Naturally that means undertaking the remodeling of a home in the Aqualane Shores area isn’t something a homeowner can afford to take lightly. And given the fact that the City of Naples has strict regulations when it comes to homes in the area, it’s essential that homeowners deal with a remodeler that knows the regulations in the area and that can deliver the kind of quality results that this kind of home demands.
