Just a month after celebrating the completion and grand opening of Vyne House Phase I at Talis Park, developer Kitson & Partners announced it is moving forward with the construction of Vyne House Phase II at the private golf course community in North Naples.
Plans for the 26,500-square-foot under air, multilevel Phase II project are being finalized and site work is expected to begin no later than third quarter 2014. Vertical construction is scheduled to begin fourth quarter 2014. Kitson anticipates holding a soft opening of Phase II in December 2015 and a grand opening in January 2016.
Located adjacent to the Great Lawn at Talis Park’s Grand Piazza, Vyne House epitomizes the New Fashioned aesthetic Kitson has introduced at the North Naples community. Vyne House consists of a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day, inviting users to come as they are in a relaxed, comfortable format. The buildings are interconnected by covered outdoor walkways and wrapped around multiple courtyards that offer the possibility of outdoor dining and entertaining. When Phase II is completed, Vyne House will include a total of 31,500 square feet under air and 20,000 square feet of outdoor space.
Phase I included completion of Vyne House Shops that features Fiona’s Market Café. Fiona’s serves fresh, local fare, wine selections, bar service and other useful daily items and has quickly become a favored destination for Talis Park residents. It is the ideal gathering place for conversation and coffee after a bike ride or walk, after a workout, yoga or Pilates session in the Vyne House Core fitness center, or after a treatment or massage in the Esprit Spa, both of which were also completed in Phase I.
Phase II will introduce Palm Court, a large open-air courtyard that is the centerpiece of Vyne House. In addition to serving as a point of entry, Palm Court will be used as a social space perfectly suited to hosting a variety of events. The upper level will also include formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, a multipurpose room immediately adjacent to Palm Court, aerobics and cardio workout rooms, and a uniquely designed Wine Room/Board Room that will host wine tastings and monthly wine pairing dinners.
Memberships in the Talis Park Wine Club will be offered. Members will have preferred access to the wine tastings and pairing dinners as well as an opportunity to secure a private wine locker.
The lower level of Vyne House Phase II will host the golf pro shop as well as the men’s and ladies’ locker rooms. The community is anchored by the lakes and fairways and greens of the Talis Park Golf Club golf course. One of just two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed courses in the world, the course has been ranked No. 91 in Golfweek’s 2014 Best Residential Courses and is consistently ranked among the top 20 courses in Florida.
The Vyne House design includes an abundance of outdoor areas that are ideal for community events, casual dining, informal get-togethers with family and friends, or simply relaxing. Phase II will include the completion of a resort-style pool with a large pool deck as well as a stately rotunda that will feature an oversized, two-sided fireplace and overlook the 18th green. As a final bonus, the Great Lawn in front of Vyne House is green space that serves as the backdrop for signature community events.
“The design of Vyne House is consistent with Kitson’s contemporary interpretation of luxury living and with Talis Park’s New Fashioned lifestyle,” said Talis Park COO Milt Flinn. “Vyne House is elegant yet understated. It allows our residents to enjoy themselves in a relaxed, casual environment. The outdoor spaces included in Phase II are indicative of Kitson’s commitment to providing a clubhouse experience that is resident focused and that reflects how our residents live day to day. As we have already seen at Fiona’s and at the Casa Cortese Grille at the Talis Park Golf Studio, the opportunity to enjoy casual outdoor lounge and dining venues is very popular. Vyne House Phase II will provide additional opportunities to do that while also providing a formal dining and lounge experience and the elegance of the Wine Room/Board Room.”
Talis Park is being envisioned and built with the financial strength and operational expertise of Kitson & Partners, a private real estate investment and development company founded in 1992 and based in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
With the completion of Vyne House Phase I, and the availability of 20 Resident Ready homes at every stage of the construction continuum, sales and buyer traffic continue to build at Talis Park. The Resident Ready Program allows buyers to choose when they wish to engage in the buying process and the degree to which they prefer to be involved with feature and finish selections. An array of condominium, villa, and estate residences by Talis Park’s participating builders is priced from the mid-$600s into the millions.
Talis Park is on Livingston Road, north of Immokalee Road. The community’s Garden House sales center is at 16980 Livingston Road. Online at talispark.com/.
