Port Royal in Naples, FL
Few residential areas in the world are as admired and coveted as the beachfront, waterfront, and lakefront properties in Port Royal Naples FL. Golfers, boaters, and those seeking a private, luxurious retreat have claimed 8 miles of winding, tree-lined boulevards and navigable channels for estates that start in the area of $2 million and move up from there. Close enough to Naples for specialty boutique shopping and 5-star waterfront dining, Port Royal is a step away from the busyness of life—an opportunity to breathe again in rhythm with the gentle Gulf waters and the refreshing sea breezes.
Port Royal Naples Florida consists of about 550 high-end estates resting on man-made peninsulas that have been created by draining and restructuring what was once simply swampland. The exclusive community is bordered on the north by Jamaica Channel, the east by Naples Bay, the south by Gordon Pass, and the west by the Gulf of Mexico. This aquatic playground for the rich and famous allows almost every estate access to the deep water basin and into the Gulf from private docks large enough to accommodate 100 foot yachts. If that weren’t enough, breath-taking, wide water views are available from almost every window, terrace, and patio.
The original creation of John Glen Sample, Port Royal was thoughtfully designed to be a “showcase of casual elegance.” As a tribute to his own unique character, Sample named the enclave after a notorious Jamaican pirate stronghold. Streets and waterways such as Rum Row and Man of War Cove reflect that theme. But the comparison stops there. Sample ensured that all landscaping, amenities, and strict building codes would be established with a very high-end exclusivity in mind. Today, the few smaller original homes from the 50s and 60s are being purchased for lot value and replaced with elegant residences of 7,000–10,000 ft2. New buyers are attracted by the tax-friendly laws in Florida and the ease of access from Southwest Florida Regional Jetport.
In addition to fine golf courses, water front activities, churches, shopping, and hospitals in nearby Naples, ownership of a Port Royal residence offers exclusive membership in the Port Royal Club which sits directly opposite the Kingston Drive entrance. World class tennis courts, the Beach Club, Olympic swimming pool, spa and fitness center facilities and dining both formal and informal are all available for Port Royal members, where socializing is an art form of its own. Port Royal Naples FL seems to have captured it all, and those who live in this elegant enclave appreciate world-class living at its best.
