One of the oldest communities in Naples, the development of Aqualane Shores in Naples Florida began in 1949 when Naples became a city. The original homes were built in 1950 with just a few remaining today. Forrest Walker & Sons bought the entire parcel in 1949 and continued to develop the area into the late 50s. Magnificent modern residences now stand side by side with roomy and sprawling older homes.
Many of the older homes have been expanded and enhanced, while others have been removed to make way for more elaborate construction. Ongoing and extensive redevelopment of the entire area has produced a collection of some of the most extraordinary waterfront estates in the Southern U.S.
Boat owners will delight in private docks and deep-water canals, the perfect home for yachts as large as 50 feet. The area is one of the few South Florida communities that give homeowners direct access to the Gulf. Waterfront homes are either on deep-water canals or directly on Naples Bay.
Aqualane Shores in Naples is known for its lush vegetation, tropical landscaping, and groomed lawns that lead directly to the water.
