Living in Downtown Naples a Major Convenience During the Holidays

While family members and friends living up north must don heavy jackets, scarves and gloves to traverse icy pavement in search of Christmas gifts, the residents of Stella Naples will be sporting resort wear and flip flops after taking a short stroll to all the incredible gift shops, boutiques and restaurants in the  sun-soaked tropical paradise known as downtown Naples.

Located at the corner of US 41 and 1st Avenue South, Stella Naples will feature just 10 luxurious residences on the top two floors of a boutique, three-story enclave, which will also have a small collection of shops and offices conveniently located on the first level.

“The response to this new mixed-use project has simply been phenomenal,” noted Sarah Hudgins, the project’s selling agent from William Raveis Real Estate. “The sizes of the residences and the fact each residence has its very own private rooftop deck are two reasons for Stella’s popularity. However, equally as popular is the project’s downtown location, with its boutique gift shops, as well as formal and casual restaurants. All are just a brief stroll away.”

Hudgins continued, “During the holidays, downtown parking is difficult, if not impossible to find. Residents of Stella Naples won’t have this problem at all, as they can easily walk to their destination. Whether it’s a store to buy gifts, a restaurant to enjoy a gourmet meal or to take in a performance of the Nutcracker at the nationally known community theatre.”

If buying groceries is on the to-do list, your car can also stay parked. That’s because the very popular and family owned Wynn’s Market, is located just two blocks from Stella Naples.

In addition to all the holiday staples, Wynns offers prepared Christmas dinners for take-out.

Truth be told, Stella Naples is perfectly located no matter the month or holiday.  Not only is the Naples Christmas parade, which progresses down Fifth Avenue South, a convenient stroll away, but there is also the St. Patrick’s Day parade and the Fourth of July parade. There’s also many annual events held within the downtown area.

So, if your dream is to live the downtown Naples lifestyle, you owe it to yourself to check out the residences at Stella Naples.

Three brilliantly designed floor plans are available.

The Aria is a two-bedroom/two-bath plan with 2,124 square feet under air and 3,461 total square feet including a 381-square-foot covered balcony and a 956-square-foot private open-air deck on the roof.

However, there are significant differences. The Celeste 203 includes a private office, while the Celeste 303 has direct staircase access from the residence to its private 1,123-square-foot rooftop deck suite, located above it.

The incredible lanais feature retractable privacy screens, a gas fireplace with accented TV wall with the same stacked-stone surrounds, tile flooring, and tongue and groove wood-paneled ceilings with fans.

Lower level residences will also include artificial grass ‘backyard’ areas creating increased set-back privacy from the picturesque pool deck and 42-foot pool with sun shelf and privacy waterfall.

Another unique and special feature of Stella Naples are the private rooftop deck spaces which can be customized to the owner’s specific lifestyle, including such notable options as outdoor kitchens, fire pits, hot tubs and more.
