In the quiet secluded Enclave of Distinction in North Naples, the development team of Distinctive Communities™ is celebrating the installation of roofs on three of the builder’s exclusive homes. Designed by Naples architects Stofft-Cooney and built by one of Southwest Florida’s most reliable local homebuilders, these unique homes are architecturally described as coastal elegance, with specific elements like Florida’s popular open concept design, Key West shutters, soaring ceilings, lots of windows, luxury solid surface countertops and outdoor entertaining space.
Based on how quickly the home sites have been selling, it seems there will be more to celebrate soon. Conveniently located on Livingston Road in North Naples, the Enclave of Distinction’s goal is to bring like-minded people together and turn neighbors into life-long friends, says developer and founder Steve Fiterman.
“Our homeowners are looking forward to moving in and in fact, many of them have already met and formed friendships,”
Fiterman was particular about where to build The Enclave of Distinction. His mission was to engender a sense of community, where people who love to enjoy life can connect with their neighbors, feel secure and appreciate low association fees. He insists on the highest quality materials, craftsmanship and including the extras that buyers expect in a high-end home.
Five floor plans are available, ranging from 3,200 to 5,200 square feet. Each one or two-story estate home has a three-car garage, private pool with optional spa and lake or private garden views. Since the development was started last Fall, two additional floor plan modifications have introduced an extra poolside guest suite or casita and larger outdoor patio areas. Light and bright laundry rooms are standard with large windows and come equipped with Whirlpool high-efficiency top load washer/dryers, along with base and upper cabinets lining the walls. Optional built-in storage and seating space at the garage entrance is designed to handle the transition from the outdoors.
An alternative for homeowners who want the exclusivity of a high-end community without the recreational options and enormous membership or association fees that accompany them can be found at The Enclave of Distinction. The focus is on essential homeowner amenities like security instead of multiple recreation choices. Currently assessed at only $322 per month, the fee covers maintenance of common landscape areas, the fountain, lake and irrigation, administrative fees, basic cable and internet provided by Hotwire® Communications, as well as reserve to maintain the decorative concrete pavers that line every street and driveway throughout the development. Upon completion, homeowners will determine if they want a manned gatehouse with a live monitored entrance or fully automated guardless entry 24 hours a day.
Distinctive Homes™ created a beautifully designed park at the entrance with a lush waterfront pavilion open to all residents. Homeowners at The Enclave of Distinction may schedule a neighborhood party, pursue their fitness regimens, find a quiet place to work or read a book and collect the mail in this covered space that offers Wi-Fi and access to gas, electricity and water. Professional caterers can transform the area for a wedding, anniversary party or other memorable social occasion.
