Minto also is introducing an exciting new collection of luxury paired villas and single-family home designs. Five paired-villa designs start from the mid-$300s, and nine luxury single-family home designs are priced from the $400s to more than $1 million. A new Model Court showcasing the new collections is scheduled to open early next year.
“Prospective home buyers now have the opportunity to purchase a luxury home priced from just the mid-$300s at The Isles of Collier Preserve,” notes Minto Senior Vice President William Bullock. “This represents an incredible value in the Naples market.”
Inspired by nature, home designs at The Isles of Collier Preserve reflect the ambiance and character of classic coastal living. Minto’s many distinctive luxury touches include architecturally detailed ceiling treatments, bright, open floor plans, large eat-in kitchens with expansive islands, formal dining rooms and more.
The new Buttonwood Collection includes luxury paired villas that range from 1,565 square feet under air to 1,862 square feet under air. One-story paired villas include two to three bedrooms, plus den or hobby room, great room, dining room, two baths, covered lanai and two car garages.

The new collections are in addition to Minto’s other luxury home designs at The Isles of Collier Preserve.

The Isles of Collier Preserve is bordered on the south by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the north by Naples Botanical Garden, and the west by Dollar Bay. More than half of The Isles of Collier Preserve’s 2,400 acres is dedicated to preserves and natural habitat. Preservation areas are connected by a network of recreational trails, bike paths and waterways for kayaking. The Isles Club at the Isles of Collier Preserve has broken ground and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015.
Every aspect of The Isles of Collier Preserve has been meticulously planned by Minto to create a sustainable community that is in harmony with nature and a model for others to follow. “Buyer and community response to The Isles of Collier Preserve has exceeded our highest expectations,” notes Bullock. “The Isles of Collier Preserve is being developed as a world-class community that is becoming known for its dedication to environmental stewardship,” he adds.
Minto developed The Isles of Collier Preserve using its own funding sources, electing not to utilize Community Development District (CDD) funds. According to Bullock, “When a developer uses CDDs, the cost of infrastructure improvements is passed on to the residents. This fee shows up on the tax bill with average annual assessments ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 per year up to a maximum of 30 years. Minto didn’t want to burden our residents with this.”
The Isles of Collier Preserve is located on U.S. 41/Tamiami Trail East, south of Thomasson Drive. Discovery Sales Center hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free electric boat tours are available 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
