Talis Park, a gated golf course community being developed by Kitson & Partners in North Naples, processed 16 closed builder and end-user lot transactions, furnished model sales, and new home construction contracts worth $11.4 million in April.

The April sales activity capped a four-month period in which 67 closed builder and end-user lot transactions, furnished model sales, and new home construction contracts worth $59.8 million were processed at Talis Park. The community is on a pace to surpass its 2014 sales volume when 95 closed homesite sales and 51 new construction contracts worth $102 million were processed within the community.

Homebuyer traffic and construction activity are additional indicators of the momentum at Talis Park. Traffic from January 1 through April 30, 2015 totaled 1,487 unique visitors compared to 873 visitors during the same period in 2014. With 74 homes completed within the community, 76 residences are currently under construction, including 44 single-family homes and 32 penthouse-style condominiums. Another 44 residences will begin construction as purchasers of homesites finalize their builder agreements.

The sales activity through the end of April included transactions in each of Talis Park’s neighborhoods, an indication that homebuyers have embraced the choices available to enjoy the community’s “In the Park” and “In the Village” lifestyles. Talis Park offers the possibility of living in a parklike setting surrounded by gently undulating terrain, nature preserves and lakes, or in a maintenance-free environment within walking distance of the community’s amenity core.

Estate home and lot sales continue to be strong at Talis Park. In March, a record setting 1.4-acre estate lot sale for $2.15 million in the community’s Firenze estate neighborhood easily surpassed the neighborhood’s previous lot sale record of $1.65 million.

Firenze is a highly exclusive, gated neighborhood that includes just 13 grand estate homesites measuring more than one acre that offer long range views of multiple fairways and lakes on Talis Park’s golf course. Homesites are priced starting at $1.65 million and are situated within a short walk of the community’s Great Lawn and the dining, fitness center, and spa venues at the community’s Vyne House clubhouse.

With its views and immediate proximity to Talis Park’s amenity core, Firenze is the only neighborhood that offers both the In the Park and In the Village experience. Ten Firenze homesites remain available.

As a result of the strong sales volume experienced through April, three of Talis Park’s In the Park neighborhoods are now sold out and two are nearly sold out. While no developer owned homesites remain available in the Prato estate home neighborhood, McGarvey Custom Homes, Gulfshore Homes, Sunwest Homes, and Stellar Living Homes are introducing a collection of new estate model and Resident Ready homes.

Prato’s one-of-a-kind estate residences that offer parklike views are priced starting at $2.75 million and range from 4,500 to more than 8,000 square feet. Ten model, unfurnished Resident Ready, and end-user residences are under construction in Prato. Prato is home to the 2015 Golf Dream House furnished model that is under construction and sold in March.

No homesites remain available in Fairgrove, a neighborhood of 24, 3,100 to 4,000 square feet south facing homes by Harbourside Custom Homes and Iron Star Luxury Homes. All of the buildable homesites in Pistoia, an enclave of 18, 3,400- to 4,000-square-foot, one- and two-story detached luxury villas by Divco Construction Corp., have also been sold.

After being introduced last spring, just two developer homesites remain available in Talis Park’s Seneca neighborhood. Each of the neighborhood’s 43 north and south facing lakefront sites feature water and double or triple fairway views and offer a perfect setting for a signature collection of single-family residences by McGarvey Custom Homes, Harbourside Custom Homes, Fox Custom Builders and Gulfshore Homes.

Seneca’s homesites will accommodate residences from 3,500 to 5,500 square feet. Custom home and lot packages are priced starting at $1.75 million. A soon-to-be-completed furnished model by Fox Custom Builders is available for purchase.

Kitson recently released 12 of the 24 single-family homesites in Corsica, the newest In the Park neighborhood in Talis Park. Nine of the just released sites remain available. Corsica’s north-facing sites offer water and multiple fairway views and are situated adjacent to the Talis Park Sports Complex. 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.

Residences in Corsica will be built by Sunwest Homes, Fox Custom Builders, and Harbourside Custom Homes. Home and lot packages are available priced starting at $1.6 million.

Two furnished and completed Resident Ready homes and two unfurnished residences currently under construction are available for immediate purchase in Talis Park’s Brightling neighborhood. Three developer owned homesites also remain available. Brightling’s south-facing homes overlook Talis Park’s golf course. Brightling’s 2,600- to 3,400-square-foot residences, base-priced at $1.35 million, are being built by Harbourside Custom Homes, Sunwest Homes, Stellar Living Homes and Fox Custom Builders.

Kitson has also expanded its selection of In the Village residences. The Residences at Vyne House showcases 14 luxury condominium residences immediately adjacent to Talis Park’s Vyne House clubhouse and Great Lawn. Eleven floor plans, ranging from 2,563 to 5,648 square feet, are priced from $1.35 million to $3.575 million. This offering puts a select group of homeowners within steps of Vyne Court, the formal and casual dining options, fitness and spa facilities, wine room, resort-style pool, and golf pro shop at Vyne House. A 24-hour, seven days a week concierge will be available to owners. Thirteen of the Residences at Vyne House remain available.

Il Corso, the Watercourse at Talis Park, has 30 detached luxury villas by Distinctive Communities ranging from 2,530 to 3,638 square feet. Situated within a walk or bike ride of Vyne House and the Great Lawn, Il Corso features seven, one- and two-story great room floor plans priced starting at $1.1 million that open to private indoor/outdoor spaces with water views.

The three- and four-bedroom plans include a study, island kitchens, outdoor living areas with heated swimming pools, and multiple storage areas. Two furnished models are scheduled for completion this month. Nineteen homesites remain available.

An enclave of residences by WCI Communities, Carrara at Talis Park will feature 90 homes in 15 mid-rise buildings at build out. The penthouse-style residences offer more than 2,900 square feet of air-conditioned space and feature wraparound loggias. Each building includes three floors over parking with two residences per floor.

The first four buildings are under construction with more than 80 percent of the residences sold. Two additional buildings have been released for sales. Completion of the first Carrara building is anticipated this month. Residences are priced starting in the $700s.
