Luxury Waterfront Properties Naples, FL

When you think of buying real estate in Florida, chances are you envision a luxury home or condo overlooking the miles of white sandy beaches, swaying palms and colorful sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. Perhaps you are a golfer, and would prefer a magnificent lake and fairway view. Whether you buy on the beach, bay, canal, or river, you can expect to pay a premium for waterfront real estate, and even more for an exceptional view of that body of water. It's a matter of fine tuning your wish list when beginning your search for waterfront real estate.

Waterfront Views in Naples

Naples is rich with waterfront opportunities for the savvy buyer. If you are a back-water fisherman with a flats boat, the depth of the canal or pass will not be as important to your decision. Sailors, and owners of bigger boats have to consider the depth of the water because some of the passes and waterways have not been dredged enough to accommodate deep draft vessels and may be too shallow even at high tide. Having direct Gulf access, meaning there will be no bridges between where your boat is moored and where you want to go, is also key to making a purchase of a waterfront property. For many who buy waterfront real estate, it is all about the view.

Beachfront Condos Naples, FL

Beachfront homes in Naples are priced from about $9,000,000 to $23,000,000, boast exquisite Gulf views and are situated just steps away from the beach. Beachfront condominiums with direct Gulf views range in price from about $500,000 to $14,000,000. The disparity in pricing reflects the size, condition and amenities of the condo unit as well as the location. There is a big factor to consider when choosing between those buildings located right on the beach and those which sit further back behind protected Mangrove wetlands, though they BOTH offer exceptional views, luxury amenities and access to the beach.

For instance, many of the condominium buildings in the Park Shore area of Naples sit right at the edge of the sandy beach, literally a few yards away from the water's edge. The condo buildings in Pelican Bay have access to the beach via wooden boardwalks; some with a short walk to the beach whereas others are a short tram ride on the boardwalk. Each of these options is wonderful, but completely dependent upon what you like and what best suits your lifestyle. It is simply a matter of personal preference, but is another way to filter your 'must haves' when you begin your search for the perfect, waterfront property in Naples, Florida. Is it view, proximity and access to the beach, or dockage and navigability of the water that is most important to you?
