Furnished models, by Fox Custom Builders and Gulfshore Homes under construction in Talis Park’s Seneca neighborhood, are on schedule for completion in May.

Wrapped by the vistas of Talis Park’s golf course, Seneca’s 43 north and south facing lakefront homesites feature water and double or triple fairway views and are within a short walk or bike ride of Talis Park’s Vyne House clubhouse and the community’s signature Great Lawn. Each site is 180 to 220 feet deep, 77 to 90 feet wide, and will accommodate residences ranging from 3,500 to 5,500 square feet. Seneca offers all-new designs in a palette of Spanish Eclectic, Italian Renaissance, and Colonial Caribbean architectural styles. Residences in Seneca are being built by Fox Custom Builders, Gulfshore Homes, McGarvey Custom Homes and Harbourside Custom Homes. Custom home and lot packages are priced starting at $1.75 million.

Priced at $2.550 million, fully-furnished, Fox Custom Builders’ 4,122-square-foot under air Sierra model in Seneca features a walled courtyard entry. One of the home’s three guest suites is situated adjacent to the courtyard space. A second guest suite and the study open to the courtyard.

A wide foyer offers a see-through view of the Sierra’s great room and the lake and golf course beyond. A formal dining room opens to a courtyard and garden. Other features include a wet bar, a double-island kitchen and breakfast nook, a detailed master suite, four-and-a-half baths and a three-car garage.

The great room opens to a pavered outdoor living area with multiple sitting areas, a dining area, an outdoor kitchen, a fireplace, and a pool and spa. The Sierra model will showcase an interior by Arlynn McDaniel of Freestyle Interiors.

Gulfshore Homes’ 3,997-square-foot under air, fully-furnished Cielo model in Seneca is priced at $2.425 million. The Cielo floor plan presents a sprawling great room that opens to an outdoor living space with a fireplace, conversation area, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, and a custom designed pool and spa. The plan also includes a double-island gourmet kitchen with a walk-in pantry, a dining room that opens to the outdoors, a wine cellar, a library/study, three bedrooms, three full baths and two half-baths, and a three-car garage. The Cielo model will feature an interior design by Soco Interiors.

Seneca has proved to be one of Talis Park’s most popular neighborhoods. The 3,658-square-foot Villa San Remo and the 3,935-square-foot Casa Arianna furnished models by Harbourside Custom Homes are sold. McGarvey Custom Homes’ 4,464-square-foot furnished Sinatra model also sold.

In addition to the models by Fox and Gulfshore that are nearing completion, just four developer owned homesites and four homesites owned by Harbourside remain available. Harbourside has three end-user new-build homes underway. McGarvey is nearing completion of one end-user new-build residence and ready to begin construction of another. Gulfshore also has an end-user new-build home under construction.

To provide luxury homebuyers additional opportunities, developer Kitson & Partners recently released 12 of 24 single-family homesites in Corsica, the newest In the Park neighborhood within Talis Park. Twenty-three of the Corsica homesites measure 65 or 77 feet and will accommodate residences ranging from 3,000 to 4,500 square feet. One 90-foot site is also available. Homesites in Corsica are priced from $495,000 to $905,000. Home and lot packages are available priced starting at $1.6 million. Residences in Corsica will be built by Sunwest Homes, Fox Custom Builders, and Harbourside Custom Homes.

Like Seneca, Corsica’s north-facing sites offer water and multiple fairway views. The Corsica neighborhood is adjacent to the new Sports Complex and south entry gate currently under construction at Talis Park.

The three-acre Sports Complex will feature six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts with directionally focused lighting and pavilions for resting between matches, a tennis pro shop and clubhouse with restrooms and a beverage center, four bocce ball courts, a 50-foot two-lane lap pool and landscaped areas. Green space will provide a social gathering and event place reminiscent of the community’s signature Great Lawn at Talis Park’s Grand Piazza. The Sports Complex will complete the amenities Kitson designed and constructed to enhance Talis Park’s New Fashioned, health-oriented lifestyle.

The new entry gate at the south end of Talis Park Drive will provide access to the community via Veterans’ Memorial Parkway. The south entry gate will include a guard house and a private entry lane for residents. As part of the entry gate project, Kitson will create a memorable approach to the community’s south entrance with significant landscaping enhancements along 1,000 feet of Veteran’s Memorial Parkway between the south entry gate and Livingston Road.

Both the Sports Complex and the south entry gate are expected to be completed by late fall.

Recognized as the Collier Building Industry Association’s 2014 Community of the Year, Talis Park is on Livingston Road, north of Immokalee Road. Talis Park’s Garden House sales center is at 16980 Livingston Road. Online at
