Naples Neo-Classical Estate Dazzles with Decks and Custom Wine Room, Only 99 Steps from the Beach and Fifth Avenue


There are certain qualities that every Naples luxury property should have: water views, easy access to the beach or bustling 5th Avenue, and outdoor spaces for enjoying the famous Florida sunshine. This recently listed Neo-Classical mansion manages to check all of these boxes and several more in a dazzling reimagining for today’s lifestyles. Listing agents Michael and Lauren Taranto of Coldwell Banker Realty call the property, “the quintessential Naples experience.” 

Set only 99 steps from the beach and the charming shops, restaurants, art shows, and parades of 5th Avenue South, the worldly 7,635-square-foot manse has been meticulously restored and enhanced for the discerning owners of today. An impressive landscaped entrance, flanked by Royal Palm trees and vibrant window boxes, sets the stage for the grandeur within. Private, powered gates give way to a circular driveway and paver walkways, leading to the home's first introduction – a two-story grand foyer with a dramatic staircase.


Drawing inspiration from Italy, Spain, France, and England, the home's architectural details weave a captivating narrative. From the intricate millwork of the second-floor parlor, reminiscent of a Hollywood movie set, to the formal dining room's rotunda ceiling, each space harkens to a bygone era, though thoughtfully reimagined for contemporary living. It’s not difficult to imagine entertaining friends and family in the formal living room with a fireplace, the parlor with its exquisite millwork and custom-built bar, or the custom wine room. Three large terraces overlook the lush grounds and the Gulf of Mexico – a prime spot for witnessing Naples' legendary sunsets. The light-filled family room offers French doors that lead out to a spacious open-air terrace with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living.

“The was designed to entertain, and is the perfect venue for philanthropy events and family celebrations,” add the Tarantos.


Hailed as the “ultimate culinary chef’s kitchen,” the kitchen impresses with top-of-the-line Viking and Sub-Zero appliances and a center island crafted from jatoba brown suede quartzite – a work of art that complements the rich wood cabinetry. An adjoining butler's pantry ensures seamless entertaining.


Four large guest bedrooms each have private ensuite bathrooms. The first-level primary suite doubles as a haven of tranquility with a spa-like bathroom with a stained-glass window and a large walk-in closet.


Beyond, an outside spiral staircase takes you to rooftop decks with built-in seating to enjoy sunsets. Tucked on the south side of the home is a pool and spa, plus a full bath for easy poolside access. Best of all, a short 99-step stroll leads you to the pristine white sands of Naples' beloved beaches. And for those seeking a vibrant social scene along 5th Avenue South is also within walking distance.


The property is meant for “an active fun lifestyle” where you can walk to all the shops, restaurants, parades, and art shows on 5th Avenue South, say the Tarantos. “The beach walks and swims will energize your soul. The warm breezes and painted skies will fill your heart with joy and relaxation.”
