A contemporary megamansion that seems to float on the Venetian Bay in Naples, Florida, hit the market Tuesday for $35 million, making it the city’s most expensive listing.
Indeed, the roughly 10,000-square-foot residence is asking a full 25% more than the next priciest listing in the southeast Florida city, a 6,200-square-foot home on the market for $26 million.
Perched like a jewelry box on top of the water, the “dazzling” home boasts walls of glass to frame bay views in every direction, according to the listing with Michael Lawler of Douglas Elliman.“Not only is the design beautifully unique, [the home] sits in the heart of Park Shore in a private enclave which was carved out by the original developer,” Mr. Lawler said in an email, adding that the developer had originally chosen the property for himself. “The current owners were then able to alter the original footprint to allow for even more linear water frontage and maximize even more views.”
Built in 2018, it sits on a series of 90-foot pilings made with more than 1,000 tons of concrete, according to the listing. It was designed by architect John Cooney of Naples-based Stofft Cooney Architects.
“The architecture creates wonderful open spaces for living and entertaining that are encased in floor-to-ceiling glass,” Mr. Lawler continued. “Yet the home still feels private and quiet. This is a hard balance to strike.”
Of course, because it’s in Florida, developing upscale indoor-outdoor space was paramount.
“The outdoor living room is unbelievable,” Mr. Lawler said. “Sprawling over the bay with endless views in every direction, this open-air amenity has a pool, a fireplace and intimate spaces for relaxing and hosting. This is the kind of feature that defines indoor/outdoor living.”
The interiors feature geometric architectural details and aqua-hued accents throughout, including walls, furnishings and the kitchen backsplash. There are four bedrooms, with the primary bedroom suite offering a private wraparound balcony with panoramic views, numerous closets and a large bathroom with a walk-through shower.
The underlying property last traded for $5.3 million in 2014, according to records with PropertyShark. The owners were not available for comment.
