Calusa Bay Development, Knauf-Koenig Group Continue to Transform Pelican Bay
The community of Pelican Bay saw the changes begin in 2012. Calusa Bay Development purchased a home on Bob White Lane and knocked it down. They enlisted Stofft Cooney Architects on the design and Knauf-Koenig Group on the build. As the dream team began and successfully knocked their first project out of the park, they gained momentum the past seven years leading the way as the transformation of Pelican Bay is in full force now. Every year Calusa Bay Development continues to raise the bar, along with the record-setting sale prices, and 2019 is no different with three new projects paving the way for more success.
Ready for immediate occupancy, 810 Bentwood Drive is 4,617 square feet under air that lives like a private resort. Located in the heart of Pelican Bay, this rustic contemporary estate features 4 en-suite bedrooms, 3 living areas, a chef’s kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and an outdoor living space that will rival the swankiest 5-star hotel. Two spacious outdoor living areas overlook a 50 foot resort style pool and infinity spa surrounded by tiki torches and lush, tropical landscaping. Listed for $5.295, this home has seen unbelievable attendance at their first open house.
Around the corner from Bentwood is the gated enclave of Georgetown, Pelican Bay. Here you will find Calusa Bay Development’s second home to finish this season, 6621 George Washington Way, an architecturally inspired estate nestled on the golf course. With a soft contemporary design, this 6,150 square foot under air masterpiece will leave you in awe. Walking through the custom made mahogany front door, you take in the pool and golf course view through the floor to ceiling Andersen windows. One’s eyes are also drawn up to the stained maple, step-up ceiling design, created by Knauf-Koenig Group’s skillful carpenters. The artistically exceptional ceiling details continue into the living room and kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances and custom cabinetry. With 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 4 living spaces, this exclusive retreat will be ready for the buyer ready to live the dream.
Last, but certainly not the least “must-have” home of this season and finishing up construction in March, is 713 Hollybriar Lane. A one of a kind project in Pelican Bay is what Calusa Bay Development had in mind when purchasing the property. Currently the only new beach-style cottage in the community, the fully renovated home features 5 bedrooms plus a study, an open concept great room and a private outdoor living area with pool and spa flanked by triple Christmas palm trees. No wall was left untouched as this massive undertaking included a modified floor plan, new front entry, pool, spa and outdoor living area along with Knauf-Koenig Group’s signature woodwork and Calusa Bay Design’s interior touches.
Pelican Bay offers a truly compelling list of lifestyle features: 570 acres of mangroves and estuaries, 43 acres of parks, recreation areas, beachfront facilities and boardwalks, three miles of private beach with beachfront dining, 27 holes of championship golf and 18 Har-Tru tennis courts divided among two complexes. , Completed in 2017, their brand new, state of the art two-story clubhouse provides enhanced experiences for members in all aspects of dining, golf and social. Highlights include a new golf shop and locker room, Tavern and wine bar, ballroom with built-in dance floor, and expanded outdoor seating overlooking the golf course and the club’s first spa and fitness center.
All three homes are listed with Taber Tagliasacchi of Calusa Bay Properties, Pelican Bay’s #1 real estate team with over $35M in 2018 closed sales. Online at www.calusabayproperties.com or 239-287-0777.
