Discover Aqualane Shores
Aqualane Shores, located between Port Royal and Old Naples, is well-known as one of the best boating communities in the area, with deepwater canals that lead to Naples Bay, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the Gulf of Mexico.
The exclusive community features 500 single family homes and a few condos. The luxurious waterfront estate homes, most of which have deepwater docks and boat lifts, are located just steps from the white sandy beaches that are Naples’ claim to fame.
Many of Aqualane Shores’ homes were built in the 1960’s and 70’s, but have been enlarged and renovated to modern standards, or, in many cases, torn down to make room for new homes. Visitors admire the old-world Florida charm as they drive along the quiet streets.
Within walking distance, residents enjoy restaurants, art galleries, and marvelous shopping opportunities in the historic Third Street South Shopping District.
The Process of Designing Your Custom Home
A lot goes into building a custom home, and nothing is predesigned. This means you will be faced with hundreds of options coming at you all at once, and it can be overwhelming.
Here are several factors to consider before you get started.
- Finding land to build on – The location of your lot will determine the structural and aesthetic guidelines and limitations for your custom home. Is the lot large enough for what you envision? Will your builder have to demolish an existing home or structure? How much fill will you need to bring in to elevate the property? If you have already selected land for your new home, you will also want to take advantage of the lot’s best features and maximize any views.
- Designing your dream home – Once you know what land you will be building on, the fun of designing your dream home begins. The options are literally endless. Research different design styles and pick two or three that interest you.
- What features should it have – Compile the main features your home should have. How many bedrooms do you want, and what size should they be? Would you like to have outdoor entertainment space? Should the kitchen have a butler’s pantry? Would you like a fitness or yoga room, a home theater, or a temperature-controlled wine room?
- Be forward-thinking– When planning a custom-built home for your family, you will want it to last for generations. Will you need room for children and/or grandchildren? Do you plan to live in the home throughout your golden years without the need for remodeling? These are just a few of the factors that a custom home builder will help you consider.
