New Sand Point Model Begun at Sapphire Cove

Construction has begun on a new Sand Point model at Sapphire Cove, an intimate residential community being developed by FL Star off Collier Boulevard in South Naples.

“The Sand Point is a spacious four-bedroom design,” said Gary Hains, FL Star spokesman. “A single-story great room plan, it opens to a large outdoor living area that includes extra dining space. The outdoor fireplace and pool create an exceptional recreation and entertainment area. The home is also pre-plumbed for outdoor kitchen.”

Adjacent to the great room is a large dining area that overlooks the lanai. A island counter provides seating for informal meals.

Located at the back of the home for additional privacy, the master suite includes two walk-in closets and a master bath with twin vanities, a soaking tub and a walk-in shower. While two guest bedroom share access to a bath via a hallway entry, the third guest bedroom features a private bath, creating a separate suite. The study is accessed through double doors from the great room.

The Sand Point model has 2,574 square feet of air-conditioned living space. With covered entry, garage and covered lanai, the home has 3,535 square feet under roof. This home is priced at $949,900.
