Lucitt & Co.
Location, architecture and amenities are its strongest assets
Antilles’ serene location is key to its ability to offer a year round resort lifestyle. No street noises interfere with its peaceful ambience. No neighboring high-rises crowd out the views. Even during the height of season, being set back at the far end of a long approach affords Antilles endless hours of peace and tranquility. The site’s natural beauty is insulated by surrounding wetland preserves and deep landscape installations augmented by JMD Development’s addition of 550 Sabal palm trees to further distinguish the community. Nothing but leafy palms and tropical foliage can brush against Antilles’ horizon wide views. Rookery Bay Reserve is its neighbor to the west. The majesty of local and migratory birds’ flight patterns across Its 110,000 acres of protected lakes and habitats have added graceful highlights to the daily routines of Antilles’ homeowners.
The natural beauty in and around the Antilles location is equally remarkable for its close proximity to all that makes Southwest Florida a world class resort destination. Set back from the wide Collier Boulevard corridor, all the area’s inherent benefits are just minutes away from the best of old Naples’ and Marco Island’s attractions. Beaches, fine dining, galleries, shopping and endless fishing and boating opportunities abound in all directions, all year round.
The presentation of Antilles’ Coach Homes is exceptional. Its 212 units offer handsome, new look, contemporary residences with luxury appointments built in as standard fittings. Detailed with dove gray stucco exteriors over concrete block, white trims and sharp charcoal Bahama shutters, the timeless elegance of West Indies Island style architecture seems fitting in Naples’ subtropical climate. Homes are fresh-looking and pleasing, especially against Antilles’ lush landscaping.
Phase 2 Classic Coach Homes offer 3-Bedroom floorplans in the 1,500+ square foot range and include revised Kitchen layouts from those in Phase 1 units. They also offer attached single-car Garages, screened-in Lanais and are priced from the upper $400,000’s. All have preserve orientations. Larger Grand Coach Homes are also 3-Bedroom units that range from 1,980 for the first floor Nevis to the 2,444 square foot, upper floor Montserrat. They are priced from the upper $500,000’s and include attached 2-car Garages and screened-in Lanais. Preserve and lake view orientations are available.
JMD Development has allotted a generous amount of space to Antilles’ amenities. The Flamingo Club encompasses 14,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor features. Its oversized 3,500 square foot Resort Pool is a perfect example of the developers’ attention to detail. It is designed with a wide and inviting wade-in, sun shelf Entry homeowners love, and also features a negative perimeter edge that appears at low angles to overflow into Antilles’ own 5-acre Kingfisher Lake and wetland preserve like a stepped water feature that gently meanders through the 54-acre community. The Pool’s fluid design incorporates curved sides to create nooks and natural separations to accommodate family or small group swim areas. A multi-person heated Spa is adjacent and the huge Tiki-Hut with end-to-end, quartz-topped service bar and BBQ grill area overlooks the Pool. Antilles’ pergola-shaded Fire Pit has become a winter season favorite and site of many evening cocktail celebrations.
Outside the gated Pool area, Antilles’ regulation Bocce and Pickleball Courts have attracted players at every level of expertise. Equipment is provided by JMD Development for the use of homeowners and their guests at no cost. It also added a 4-hole Putting Green. As a family owned and operated company, the principals have taken a personal interest in every phase of Antilles’ development. A sense of goodwill and the kind of friendliness that evolves from the easy exchanges of information and resources when everyone is new to the community at the same time seems to be a hallmark of community life in the Antilles. It is a nice place to live.
The Flamingo Club amenity center was designed to be at the heart of the community. In addition to its expansive Outdoor Living Area, it is as representative of Antilles’ luxury resort presentation as it is of the quality built into every residence. Concierge and executive services are managed here and the Exercise and Fitness Center, Massage Room and Catering Kitchen are to the rear. Antilles’ Selection Center, where buyers determine the personalizing options for their individual residences, is also there. The huge Gathering Room occupies about one-half of the Club’s 5,000 square foot expanse and features wall to wall views across the community. It includes the Fireplace Lounge with comfortable furnishings and a big screen TV, Sonny’s all day Coffee Bar and multiple round tables and chairs perfect for dining and socializing.
