New Community Alert: Esplanade by the Islands in Naples, FL

Development of Esplanade by the Islands began in 2020.

Naples is quickly becoming one of the most desirable places to live in Florida, and there’s a new active lifestyle community planned that’s going to make this area on the state’s southwest coast even more irresistible. Esplanade by the Islands is a Taylor Morrison project set to offer single-family homes and attached villas, starting in the mid $300s.

New Construction Homes for Sale in Naples

Construction at Esplanade by the Islands began in 2020, and the demand for new homes has been so great that more than 100 homes have already been sold. Buyers looking to downsize their space and minimize costs will appreciate the attached villas, which come in two models: The Mazzano and The Ceretti. These homes range from 1,676 to 1,905 square feet and have two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage. 

The villas will have open-concept layouts with kitchens and breakfast bars that open into the living room. Certain floor plans include walk-in closets and upgrades such as formal dining rooms, outdoor lanais, and extra rooms that can be used as a den, office, or guest bedroom. 

Single-family new construction homes will be available in one or two-story models. There are nine floor plans to choose from: Azzurro, Farnese, Lazio, Ambra, Letizia, Lincoln, Pallazio, Beacon, and Humboldt. These models are available between 1,886 and 3,502 square feet. Buyers can choose a home with two to four bedrooms and two to five bathrooms. Every house will have an attached two or three-car garage. 

Features will include kitchens with walk-in pantries, islands with seating, and breakfast bars. Master suites are spacious with extra storage and vanities with dual sinks.

Esplanade by the Islands Lifestyle

The Amenity Center planned for Esplanade by the Islands will be surrounded by water and greenspace. Builders expect to include a clubhouse with a fitness center, pool, and a number of athletic courts. In addition to the amenities the community plans to provide, Taylor Morrison is also known for TM LiveWell™, an appliance suite that focuses on clean air, clean water, and a reduction of potentially harmful chemicals. Products in this suite will be featured bith in homes and around the neighborhood. 

The surrounding area and local neighborhood also have their selling points. The beach will only be about 20 minutes away.
