Quail West’s Legacy of Luxury Continues to Expand in 2016
- Quail West
Naples Since completing its purchase of the 234 remaining home sites at Quail West on May 25, 2012, Stock Development has furthered the community’s legacy of providing one of Southwest Florida’s most compelling luxury lifestyles. Now celebrating its 15th year as Southwest Florida’s leading developer and luxury homebuilder, Stock Development has been nationally ranked in Builder Magazine’s BUILDER 100 for four consecutive years and was recently recognized as the Best Residential Builder in Gulfshore Business Magazine’s 2016 Best of Business Awards. Stock’s unique brand of excellence is especially evident at Quail West, a gated golf course community in North Naples that continues to provide a refined country club living experience.
Stock’s success at Quail West has been the result of new product introductions that have diversified the community’s residential choices and a continued commitment to providing luxury homebuyers with a readily available supply of completed and soon to be completed residences in all product categories. There are now 507 completed homes at Quail West, 61 of which were completed in 2016. An additional 43 residences started construction this year. Quail West’s Preferred Builders are currently offering 37 furnished models and unfurnished move-in ready homes that are completed or scheduled for completion during the 2017 winter season. Available product choices range from detached single-family villa homes, to luxurious one and two-story single-family homes, and sprawling grand estate residences that are continuing Quail West’s legacy of providing Southwest Florida’s finest estate lifestyle experience. A choice selection of home sites, furnished models, and unfurnished move-in ready residences are available in all product categories for discerning homebuyers who value a lushly landscaped setting, residences that offer both elegance and an exceptional level of livability, and an array of world-class amenities that includes two championship golf courses.
Designed to meet the needs of Quail West’s growing membership and the changing lifestyle characteristics of the community’s members, a substantial two phase renovation of the community’s clubhouse and two championship golf courses budgeted at a cost of approximately $30 million began in 2016. The improvements will provide the latest in physical facilities and state of the art technology while further solidifying Quail West’s position as Southwest Florida’s leading luxury golf course community. To avoid the sprawling and disjointed building configuration prevalent at other clubs, the renovation design is focused on providing an integrated club experience in a single location. The renovation of the 70,000 square foot clubhouse complex will feature a new 12,000 square foot dedicated fitness and wellness building; enlarged and redesigned pre-function spaces to enhance the members’ experience during events; a major enhancement to the casual dining facilities and outdoor dining areas; an Internet Café with grab and go service; and a complete renovation of the kitchens to improve food preparation and service in all dining venues in the Club.
The design of the improved clubhouse spaces has been a cooperative effort of Quail West’s members, Humphrey Rosal Architects, and Clive Daniel Home. Their design concept is intended to enhance the club’s current high-end finishes while incorporating new design elements consistent with the new building additions. Phase 1 of the clubhouse enhancements is expected to be completed in early 2017, including the redesigned lobby and gathering places, the renovation of the upstairs banquet kitchen, and the two-story dedicated fitness and wellness center building.
Quail West has long been acknowledged for providing one of Southwest Florida’s finest pure golf experiences. The club’s amenity enhancement initiative will further that legacy. While the original design and character of the community’s Preserve and Lakes courses designed by golf course architect Arthur Hills will remain essentially intact, the renovation initiative is focused on improving the playability of both courses for golfers of all skill levels. The renovations will address enhancements to the irrigation systems, green complexes, the adjacent bunker, fringe, and grass areas, and the fairways. New irrigation technologies will be introduced to embrace best water conservation practices and to reduce overall operating costs.
The golf course enhancements are being overseen by J. Drew Rogers, a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects who is highly regarded for his ability to undertake golf course renovation projects. Rogers is intimately familiar with Quail West’s golf courses, having worked directly with Arthur Hills to design two nine-hole layouts that would later comprise the Lakes Course.
Improvements to the Preserve course are underway. The course is expected to reopen in early 2017. Improvements to the Lakes course will begin in spring, 2017 with completion anticipated by December 2017.
Luxury homebuyers will have an opportunity to experience Quail West’s refined lifestyle and exquisite residences firsthand during the community’s Estates of Excellence Home Tour in March. The Home Tour will showcase Quail West’s unprecedented collection of furnished grand estate residences that are situated on sites featuring the community's long range water, fairway, and preserve views. The Tour will feature eight completed furnished estate residences by award-winning homebuilders Stock Signature Homes, Seagate Development Group, LLC, McGarvey Custom Homes, Diamond Custom Homes, Fox Custom Builders, Florida Lifestyle Homes, and London Bay Homes. The residences showcase architectural and interior designs by Southwest Florida’s leading architects and interior designers. In addition to the residences included on the Home Tour, new estate homes are under construction and scheduled for completion throughout the 2017 winter season. Custom estate home and home site packages are priced from $2.5 million to over $7 million.
