Historic Naples Pier is a great way to enjoy the end of the day if you live in The Isles of Collier Preserve.

Naples, Florida is routinely mentioned as one of the best places in the country to fish, golf, shop, and enjoy the warm waters along the Gulf of Mexico coastline. Active adults looking for a comfortable and dynamic place to call home might want to consider Isles of Collier Preserve, one of the newest developments in Southwest Florida, constructed by Minto Homes. There are no age restrictions in this gated community, but it does have many of the lifestyle options active adults crave.

New Homes in Several Collections

When construction is complete, Minto Homes plans to have 1,649 properties, including single-family homes, attached villas, and coach homes. A homeowners' association covers the maintenance and upkeep of the community and its amenities for an annual fee. Constructed with generous square footage and lots of living space, the smallest properties have two bedrooms and over 1,500 square feet of space.

Buyers have a lot of choices at Isles of Collier Preserve and making a final decision on what to purchase will come down to budget and lifestyle. The Buttonwood Collection is the most affordable, starting in the mid $300s, offering two or three bedrooms and some homes with dens. At the high end is The Banyan Collection, in the price range of the mid $600s to the low $1Ms. These are two, three, and four-bedroom single-family homes with three-car garages and extra space that can be used as a den or an office.
