Naples luxury homebuilder Diamond Custom Homes has announced the completion of a 13,268 total square foot estate home on the corner of Gulf Shore Drive in Vanderbilt Beach.

Situated on an oversized corner homesite, the three-story, six-bedroom, six- and one half-bath residence is designed by Rich Guzman, Principal Residential Designer of R.G. Designs, with custom cabinetry by EDGE, interior design by Tina Margrander of Tina-Marie Interiors and landscape architecture by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design.

The south-facing site offers a private deck with Gulf access. The original residence, built in 1989, was razed in October 2020 to allow for the construction of the new custom estate.

“In pursuit of the ultimate ‘beach pad’ and quintessential family retreat among plentiful water views, our goals for this exciting project were meticulously defined,” said Diamond Custom Homes President, Michael Diamond. “Among other features throughout the home, multiple outdoor decks, 90-degree sliding glass doors and a spacious outdoor living area provide multiple casual spaces and aptly embody Southwest Florida’s laid-back allure. While the residence’s exterior presents a contemporary aesthetic, its interior is relaxed.”

The home offers 6,532 air-conditioned square feet. Bifurcated staircases extend from the ground floor to the first floor, and also from the second to the third floors, accessible from the kitchen area elevator. Laundry rooms are located on both the first and second living levels.

The home’s ground floor consists of a lower entry foyer, beach room, four-car garage, covered patio, and beach patio in 5,048 square feet.

Serving as the main floor of the residence, the first living level features 2,855 square feet of living area in a great room floor plan with a VIP guest suite with full bath and walk-in closet, powder room, laundry room and elevator foyer. The spacious kitchen includes an oversized center bar and pantry, a catering kitchen with pantry, and a separate dining room with bar and wine cooler. Off the dining room is a large beach-view sitting area with views to the outdoor living area and beyond. Also, off the dining room, a large playroom with 90-degree floor-to-ceiling windows on both walls lead to a 247-square-foot beach deck, which offers west and northwest views overlooking to the Gulf of Mexico, as well as long south and east views down the canal. A 795-square-foot outdoor living area off the great room, on the home’s southwest side overlooking the canal, features an elevated pool, spa and pool bath, a full outdoor kitchen with oversized center bar and grill, and ample seating and conversation areas.

The second living level encompasses 3,497 air-conditioned square feet, including three VIP guest suites with walk-in closets, ensuite baths and a 104-square-foot guest deck. The top floor master suite has private front and rear decks, a sitting area and two walk-in closets. The spacious master bath has two-story ceilings, dual sinks, separate makeup vanity, walk-in shower and freestanding tub. Just beyond the second level elevator foyer is a large loft which leads to a bunk bedroom with a large, shared bath, walk-in closet and two separate linen closets. The second level has a large flex or hangout room with 90-degree sliding glass doors accentuating the 277-square foot covered outdoor living area. A laundry room is located just opposite the flex room.
