The Isles of Collier Preserve…
The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples by Minto Communities is an award-winning master-planned community inspired by nature, informed by historic references to the classic southern coastal architecture of Old Naples, and designed to accommodate an active lifestyle that is connected to nature.
Just four miles east of downtown Naples, The Isles of Collier Preserve provides residents with a stunningly beautiful private world bordered by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Naples Botanical Garden and Dollar Bay. More than 1,300 acres of the community’s 2,400 acres are dedicated to natural habitat and nature preserves connected by a network of recreational trails, nature observation stations, bike paths and waterways for kayaking.
Residents and visitors enter The Isles of Collier Preserve through a gatehouse archway distinguished by a reflecting pool. Next stop for visitors…the Discovery Sales Center, described as more nature center than sales center. A “Neighbors Room” presents displays on neighbors Rookery Bay Reserve, Naples Botanical Garden, and Conservancy of Southwest Florida, among others. A rustic boardwalk encircles a recreated cypress wetland and 14’ cypress tree replica. Visitors can take a virtual tour at interactive stations, take an eco-friendly electric boat ride or explore via Minto-provided bicycle or kayak.
The Isles Club with its inviting coastal cottage style design inspired by the original Naples Beach Hotel built in 1888 is at the community’s center. The Club includes a stunning resort-style pool, lap pool, pickleball and tennis courts, and impressively appointed fitness center. A lushly landscaped event courtyard and yoga lawn, kayak launch and beach with cabanas surround the club.
Isles of Collier Preserve residents have formed a variety of clubs related to the community’s many outdoor activities. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the US, and The Isles Pickleball Club members look forward to the 2017 Minto US Open Pickleball Championships hosted at the nearby East Naples Community Park from April 23-29. Minto, along with their new Latitude Margaritaville communities, are the Title Sponsor of this annual championship tournament. ¦ Home choices to meet every lifestyle Minto offers a selection of 43 innovative, energy-efficient home designs at The Isles of Collier Preserve that complement their spectacular natural surroundings and present a contemporary interpretation of classic Florida coastal home styles.
