Diamond Custom Homes announced construction for its custom spec home at 26385 Hickory Boulevard on Bonita Beach is progressing on schedule with topoff recently achieved. The company began construction for the project in February.
“This three-story waterfront estate home is an exciting new project for our team,” said Michael Diamond, President of Diamond Custom Homes. “We are pleased with the progress we’ve made on the estate so far and expect the home to be resident-ready in early 2020.”
Key structural features of the 10,739 square foot home include a second floor infinity edge pool and a third floor terrace. Designed by RG Designs, the home includes private boat slips as it is situated directly on the Hogue Channel, which feeds into Estero Bay.
The perfectly symmetrical front elevation of this spec home features two garages on either side of the custom wooden, double door entrance to the lower foyer. Within the lower foyer is access to the elevator reaching from the ground floor to the top floor. The remaining space on the ground floor is occupied by nearly 2,000 square feet of storage space.
Upon entrance to the first living level of the home by the staircase or elevator, guests enter into the foyer, which features an open space with a railing overlooking the aforementioned lower foyer. Two guest suites are situated on either side of the opening, both with en suite baths equipped with double sinks and walk-in closets, decks, and beach views overlooking the Gulf of Mexico across the street. The front wing of the first living level also features a powder room, laundry room, and pantry.
On the waterfront side of the first level sits the open kitchen and spacious grand room with ample seating. The kitchen is well equipped with abundant counter space, including a ten-foot kitchen island with double sinks and built-in dishwasher. Within the expansive kitchen area is a dining area. The living area will feature a linear fireplace with television above.
A unique feature of this home will be the elevated, infinity edge pool area on the second floor overlooking the water channel. The second floor will also feature a spacious outdoor living area enclosed with a retractable screen, also with scenic views of the water channel when open. The concrete deck will include a pool bath, sink, grill, and a television installed above the fireplace.
The second floor living area and top floor will host the master suite, flex study or guest room, second laundry room, second powder room, sunset/relaxation room, and covered patios and decks. The master suite overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and has direct access to the third-floor sun deck. The master suite is complete with dual walk-in closets and an expansive master bath featuring an oversized free-standing tub.
Building on Bonita Beach comes with certain complexities, like soft soil and small lot sizes, which force construction to move vertical. Diamond’s team of professionals is experienced in these more intricate components of waterfront construction, and has implemented concrete pilings as strong support systems to the home.
“The unique structural components of this home make its construction an intriguing project for our team. This home is a unique departure from our past projects, but we are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to showing off the finished product,” said Diamond. “Our 25-plus years of experience building in the South Florida market makes us well-equipped to master this picturesque estate.”
The Hickory Boulevard spec home is one of several Naples, Bonita Beach and Ft. Myers-area residential projects currently underway by Diamond Custom Homes.
