After reporting 95 closed homesite sales and 51 new construction contracts worth $102 million processed in 2014, the sales and new construction momentum at Talis Park has carried into the new year.

The gated golf course community being developed by Kitson & Partners processed seven closed builder and end-user lot transactions, two furnished model contracts, and one end-user new-build construction contract worth a combined total of $7.217 million during the month of January. New homebuyer traffic was up 250 percent compared to January of 2014 and return traffic was up 1,000 percent. Thirty-six residences are under construction in Talis Park’s nine neighborhoods and another 30 are poised to start within the next six months. The current and planned construction activity will push the number of completed residences within the community to well over 100.

As evidenced by a continued surge in sales and construction activity, luxury homebuyers have embraced developer Kitson & Partners vision for Talis Park. Just eight opportunities remain available to purchase a residence in the community’s Brightling neighborhood. Brightling’s south-facing homes overlook the fairways of Talis Park’s golf course. The 2,600- to 3,400-square-foot residences feature Caribbean Colonial and Spanish Eclectic designs base-priced at $1.25 million. Participating Builders in Brightling include Harbourside Custom Homes, Sunwest Homes, and Fox Custom Builders. Three furnished and one unfurnished completed Resident Ready homes are available for immediate purchase and occupancy in Brightling. Only four buildable homesites remain available.

The Fairgrove neighborhood’s In the Park lifestyle offers golf course, water and preserve views. The “single loaded” neighborhood presents 24 south facing homes on just one side of the street. Unobstructed views to the north include a Talis Park preserve and a golf course in an adjacent community. Italian Renaissance designs honor the more traditional view of Naples’ architecture and are joined by a Spanish Eclectic style that offers a perfect complement. Homes in Fairgrove by Harbourside and Iron Star Luxury Homes range from 3,100 to 4,000 square feet and are priced starting at $1.35 million. Ten homes are under construction in Fairgrove, and just two developer and one builder-owned home site remain available.

Talis Park’s Pistoia neighborhood is an enclave of 18, 3,400- to 4,000-square-foot one- and two-story detached luxury villas by Divco Construction Corp. base-priced at $1.45 million.

Two models are open for viewing in Watercourse and two new models are scheduled for completion by the end of first quarter. Ten end-user residences have been completed or are currently under construction. Eighteen buildable homesites remain available in Watercourse.

After being introduced last spring, just 14 of the 43 homesites in Talis Park’s Seneca neighborhood remain available. Two furnished model residences by Harbourside Custom Homes are now open in Seneca, and models by McGarvey Custom Homes, Fox Custom Builders, and Gulfshore Homes will be completed this spring.

Each building includes three floors over parking with two residences per floor. The first four buildings are under construction with nearly 80 percent of the residences sold. Two additional buildings have recently been released for sales. Completion of the first Carrara building is anticipated in spring. Residences in Carrara are priced starting in the $700s.

With estate homesites overlooking the fairways of Talis Park’s golf course, lakes, preserves, and citrus orchards, the Prato neighborhood offers the consummate In the Park lifestyle.
