New Acacia Grande model opens at The Isles of Collier Preserve

NAPLES, FL — (May 23, 2023) — Minto Communities introduces their newest single-family luxury home model — the Acacia Grande — at The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples, Florida. The new model is fully furnished in an inviting coastal contemporary design that draws on a neutral palette accented by warm wood tones.

The Acacia Grande is part of Minto’s Palmetto Collection of single-family homes. With four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, den, covered lanai and two-car garage, it totals 3,691 square feet with 2,847 square feet under air. Additional elevation and interior options are available, and a cabana bath and outdoor kitchen can be added.

An impressive gallery-style foyer with soaring 18.5 foot ceilings provides a stunning view through the home to the lanai, swimming pool and beautiful waterway beyond. Gleaming white 24x24 polished floor tile, recessed and decorator lighting, ceiling fans and Minto’s signature custom trim detailing are throughout.

The large great room and kitchen with oversized island open fully to the lanai and outdoor living area through pocketed sliding glass doors, creating a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Kitchen highlights include European style cabinetry, JennAir® kitchen appliances, stainless steel kitchen range hood, matte black kitchen fixtures and Cambria Quartz countertops.

In the expansive master bedroom, bay windows overlook the waterway and bring in natural light. A dark wood plank accented tray ceiling and wall details add even more visual drama. The master bath showcases an elegant freestanding tub, large, glass-enclosed spa shower, double vanities with brushed gold fixtures and spacious walk-in closet. There is impact glass on all windows and doors and energy-saving LED landscape lighting. Base pricing starts at $904,900.

The Isles of Collier Preserve encompasses more than 2,400 acres with 1,300 acres dedicated to natural habitat and nature preserves that are connected by miles of scenic recreational trails and blueways for kayaking and paddleboarding. The award-winning master-planned community is inspired by nature and informed by the unique history and timeless architecture and traditions of Old Naples. Located just four miles from the world famous dining, shopping and entertainment district of 5th Avenue in downtown Naples, The Isles of Collier Preserve is bordered by some of Southwest Florida’s most beautiful lands and waterways.

The Palmetto Collection of single-family homes, as well as Buttonwood Collection of paired villas, are being built in the final phase of The Isles of Collier Preserve on a 103-acre property located at the community’s western boundary. More than half of this property will remain lakes and preserves with 25-acres of lakes and 30-acres of preserves.

“The Isles of Collier Preserve is a stellar example of a community designed to be in harmony with nature,” says Minto’s Southeast Division President Steve Svopa. “Our home buyers have responded enthusiastically to the close-to-nature lifestyle offered, resulting in record sales since opening in 2014. The opening of this final phase allows us to meet the continuing demand for new homes at The Isles of Collier Preserve.” Originally slated for approximately 1,650 homes, the community now will have 1,825 homes at buildout.

Residents of The Isles of Collier Preserve enjoy a full range of resort-style amenities. The Isles Club design is inspired by the charming coastal style of the original Naples Beach Hotel, circa 1888. A high-ceilinged central breezeway provides an inviting site line to the stunning gradual entrance resort pool and lap pool, along with access to the 3,000-square-foot fitness center. There also are pickleball, tennis and bocce ball courts with lighting for night play, a kayak launch and much more. And four-legged residents also can get in plenty of play time at the Canine Cove dog park.

The residents-exclusive Overlook Bar & Grill is a favorite gathering spot. It graces the shore of the community’s picturesque Cypress Waterway and offers spectacular views of the waterfront and Southwest Florida’s stunning sunsets. Its rustic design harkens back to the many waterfront bars that dotted the shores of Florida’s waterways in the past.

Home collections reflect a contemporary interpretation of classic Florida coastal style with open floor plans that maximize views of the waterway, lakes and preserves.
