For visitors to Talis Park in North Naples, the sense of anticipation as the arched entry gate opens is palpable. Once inside, the eyes are mesmerized by a breathtaking tableau. Tall trees line an exquisitely manicured grand parkway that winds past citrus orchards, inviting gardens, primeval nature preserves, and the glittering lakes and emerald-toned Sea Dwarf® Paspalum fairways and greens of one of just two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed golf courses in the world.
Kitson & Partners, the community’s developer, has brought an energized spirit to Talis Park by introducing a lifestyle that is more focused on personal health and well-being, more attuned to family and friends, and more conscious of long-term value and legacy. Kitson’s “New Fashioned” concept for the community represents a shift in thinking that is inspiring the evolution of Talis Park and serves as the foundation for the creation of one of the most extraordinary luxury home communities in Naples.
Kitson’s contemporary interpretation of luxury living is uncomplicated and brings relevance to those aspects of life that are meant to ease the stress of day-to-day living. The result is a community that honors the timeless qualities that never go out of style. Talis Park is the Old World made new, a place where Old Fashioned Grace is Wrapped in a New Fashioned Lifestyle that conveys a more meaningful idea of luxury. It is the Club reconsidered, and invites a select group of members to enjoy an active, health-oriented lifestyle on their own terms.
From the ground up, a cornerstone of Kitson’s development strategy at Talis Park is the notion that “design matters.” Five neighborhoods crafted by Southwest Florida’s finest custom homebuilders present all-new designs in a fresh palette of Spanish Eclectic, Italian Renaissance and Colonial Caribbean architectural styles. Designed to optimize their unique natural surroundings, these homes are tailored to fit the land and the homeowner’s individual sense of style. The result for future owners is a diverse offering of estate homes and villa neighborhoods priced from the $700’s into the millions.
Talis Park’s neighborhoods offer the possibility of living in a parklike setting surrounded by nature preserves and sparkling lakes, or in a maintenance-free environment within walking distance of the community’s Grand Piazza. This “In the Park” or “In the Village” approach reflects Kitson’s commitment to creating a community where every aspect of country club living is relevant to the residents’ daily lives and rituals.
Resident Ready homes at every stage of the construction continuum are available in each of Talis Park’s neighborhoods. Designed to meet buyer demand for fully completed or nearly completed inventory, the Resident Ready Program includes homes ranging from completed fully-furnished models, to completed unfurnished residences, and residences in varying stages of construction. The Program allows buyers to choose when they wish to engage in the buying process and the degree to which they prefer to be involved with feature and finish selections.
The 2,600 to 3,400 square feet residences in Talis Park’s Brightling neighborhood offer captivating golf course, water and preserve views. Caribbean Colonial and Spanish Eclectic architectural designs with three or four bedrooms, studies, formal dining rooms, island kitchens, spacious master suites and entertainment friendly outdoor living areas are base-priced from $1 million. Resident Ready homes currently under construction and fully-furnished, designer-decorated models by Sunwest Homes and Fox Custom Builders are available in Brightling.
Like Brightling, the Fairgrove neighborhood’s In the Park lifestyle offers Talis Park’s hallmark golf course, water and preserve views. Both neighborhoods are “single loaded” with south facing homes on just one side of the street. Fairgrove’s Italian Renaissance designs honor the more traditional view of Naples’ architecture and are joined by a Spanish Eclectic style. Furnished models and Resident Ready residences by Harbourside Custom Homes and Iron Star Luxury Homes range from 3,400 to 4,000 square feet and include flowing great rooms, formal dining rooms, island kitchens, three or four bedrooms, studies and finely detailed outdoor living areas and pools. Fairgrove’s elegant residences are base-priced from $1.2 million.
Pistoia is an enclave of just eighteen 3,400 to 4,000 square feet one and two-story detached luxury villas by Divco Construction Corp., each of which face a nature preserve and enjoy stunning golf course and water views to the rear. Divco’s 3,685 square feet La Flora completed Resident Ready residence features three bedrooms, a study, formal living and dining rooms, an island kitchen, family room and an outdoor living area with a pool, spa and outdoor kitchen. Residences in Pistoia are base-priced from $1.45 million.
Those who envision a grand custom estate residence are taken by Talis Park’s Prato neighborhood, a secluded enclave offering enhanced privacy and some of the most spectacular views in the entire community. Prato offers Park Estate Homes built by Talis Park’s Participating Custom Builders that are the flagship residences of Talis Park. Homebuyers in Prato have the option of working with Talis Park’s team of architects or selecting one of their own. Prato’s exquisite residences range from 4,500 to well over 7,000 square feet on 125’ x 175’ sites and start at $2.5 million.
The In the Village residences in Il Corso, The Watercourse at Talis Park, offer fresh designs that combine the comfort and character of a single-family home with a vibrant village ambience. Each of the neighborhood’s thirty homes will open to a succession of inviting indoor/outdoor spaces, culminating in a spectacular view over the water from the back patio. These Spanish Eclectic great room residences by Distinctive Communities are priced from the $900’s and offer 2,500 to 3,600 square feet with three or four bedrooms, island kitchens and spacious outdoor living areas with pools overlooking the neighborhood’s captivating water views. Furnished models are available for viewing and purchase in Il Corso.
Watercourse is a short walk from Talis Park’s Grand Piazza that includes Vyne House. Vyne House epitomizes Talis Park’s New Fashioned aesthetic. Rather than offering an expansive clubhouse that is narrowly focused in design and function, Vyne House consists of a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day, inviting users to come as they are in a comfortable format. The buildings are interconnected by covered outdoor walkways and wrapped around multiple courtyards that offer the possibility of outdoor dining and entertaining.
Phase I of Vyne House is completed and includes Vyne House Shops that features Fiona’s Market Cafe. Fiona’s serves fresh, local fare, wine selections, bar service and other daily items. Fiona’s general store personality is decidedly New Fashioned. It is the ideal gathering place for conversation and coffee after a bike ride or walk, after a workout, yoga or Pilates session in the Vyne House Core Fitness Center, or after a manicure or massage in the Esprit Spa, both of which have been completed. Talis Park residents also enjoy the indoor and outdoor dining and outdoor bar pavilion at the Casa Cortese Grille, an ideal spot to celebrate a just completed round of golf or to simply enjoy time with friends while overlooking Talis Park Golf Club’s pristine driving range.
Talis Park is a place where Old Fashioned Grace is found not only in the look, feel and legacy of the community, but also in the quality of service that is extended to every resident and guest.
The Talis Park experience begins the moment one arrives at the gate and continues in every interaction with every member of the staff. A staff-wide commitment to knowing the personal preferences of every member and to anticipating their needs makes the Talis Park lifestyle as unique as the people who call the community home.
