The Dawn McKenna Group (DMG) has listed Chicago-based Oakley Home Builders’ newly-built waterfront estate at 682 17th Avenue South, Naples, FL 34102 for $18.9 million. The 5,878-square-foot contemporary masterpiece, located in the prestigious Aqualane Shores neighborhood, is co-listed by Victoria Clarke-Payton and Ashley Baird of DMG.
An unveiling event will take place at the estate on Friday, Feb. 17, 5 p.m. Guests will enjoy light bites, drinks and entertainment. To RSVP, please email Victoria Clarke-Payton at Victoria@DawnMcKennaGroup.com or call 239-692-1065, or email Ashley Baird of DMG at Ashley@DawnMcKennaGroup.com or call 239-300-8476.
Clarke-Payton and Baird have worked closely with developer Oakley Home Builders on this project since 2021, from securing the lot for this spec home, to now selling it. Having previously worked with the custom home builder in Chicago over the past several years, DMG and Oakley Home Builders, co-owned by Steven Sobkowiak and Ryan Dunham, have developed a great relationship resulting in success for both parties in the Naples and Chicago markets.
The 682 17th Avenue South property is Oakley Home Builders’ third project on 17th Avenue South, in the prestigious Aqualane Shores neighborhood, and its fifth project (including new construction homes and renovations) in the Naples area. Oakley Home Builders has another home currently under construction, slated for completion in December 2023, in Naples’ Seagate neighborhood and plans for a seventh home in Royal Harbor.
The grassroots home builder and developer works closely with respected Naples companies to keep things as local as possible. 682 17th Avenue South is being delivered fully furnished by renowned Clive Daniel Home in Naples (furnishings are included in the listing price.) The architect is HLevel Architect in Naples, and interior design is by Oakley Home Builders’ in-house HOE. The general contractor is locally based BUILD.
The reason DMG and Oakley Home Builders selected Aqualane Shores for this project is that it boasts direct Naples Bay access with no bridges to get to the Gulf of Mexico, and the 2-story estate sits on a southern-facing lot featuring five bedrooms, a study and a workout room, eight full bathrooms, one half bathroom, and loft space with a bar on the second floor. Ideal for boaters and car collectors, the estate includes new seawall ready for a homeowner to build a custom dock, three garage spaces with options for lifts totaling six cars and is set up for an electric charging station.
With hardwood floors and a seamless connection between the estate’s indoor and outdoor space, the estate represents a delightful indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Upon entering the majestic double height foyer, buyers are treated to a walk-in glass wine room nestled under the staircase, before stepping in to the great room, featuring a paneled ceiling, welcoming fireplace wall and custom cabinetry. With top-of-the-line Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, the large gourmet kitchen showcases custom glass-fronted cabinets, grand center island, double ovens, large dining space, and butler’s pantry.
The first floor ensuite principal bedroom beckons with water views from every window, 10-foot pocketing doors leading to the pool deck, spa-like bathroom with multiple shower heads and a separate soaking tub, dual vanity sinks, and beautifully appointed His and Her walk-in custom closets. A private elevator whisks guests to the second floor, which features four ensuite bedrooms, a den/workout room, a flex/second living area, and generous covered and open balcony.
Luxurious outdoor living amenities include a large infinity edge pool, spa and sun shelf, summer kitchen with gas grill and wet bar, and a lower terrace with a natural gas fireplace. Other impressive features are smart home automation and new sea wall.
The estate is just a short stroll to Naples’ beaches and Third Street South, the birthplace of Naples, which offers sophisticated shops, fine restaurants and bistros, and courtyards and antique fountains amid lush landscaping. The home is minutes to 5th Avenue’s fine dining and world-class shopping.
“At the Dawn McKenna Group, we have developed a strong relationship and symbiosis with Oakley Home Builders over the years,” said Victoria Clarke-Payton of DMG. “We know where they want to build and what homes styles buyers desire. DMG and Oakley Home Builders sits down and collaborates to bring ideas on paper to life. In working with Oakley Home Builders on these projects, it is important that we support our local community and contract many family-owned smaller Naples businesses to provide custom fit and finishes to each home. This in turn allows us to pass along a fantastic product to buyers with the convenience of being able to move right in.”
“Not a traditional Naples home, this estate is a unique, contemporary masterpiece,” said Ashley Baird of DMG. “This is the third home that Oakley Home Builders has done on 17th Avenue, the first was 556 17th, which was new construction. The other was a renovation at 470 17th South, due to the custom home builder’s love of the area, its boating aspect, and the fact that it is walking distance to the beach and Third Street South.”
