First sales release of 16 homes reserved on opening weekend

Minto Communities has introduced an all-new lifestyle option at The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples, Florida — the Coastal Cottages Collection. Four fully-furnished model homes opened June 25. The initial sales release of 16 pre-designed homes, starting in the $500s, were reserved by home buyers during opening weekend. Additional homesites will be released in July.

The new Coastal Cottages neighborhood is located on 150 homesites near the entry to The Isles of Collier Preserve and provides convenient access to the Cormorant Nature Trail, one of the many walking trails within the community.

Four fully-furnished Coastal Cottages models are open for viewing. Designed in the classic coastal architectural style seen throughout the community, Coastal Cottages feature charming front porches, rear-entry garages and open spaces that are thoughtfully planned for relaxing at home as well as entertaining guests.

“We are very pleased to introduce Minto’s new Coastal Cottages at The Isles of Collier Preserve,” says Steve Svopa, Southeast Division President of Minto Communities USA. “The Coastal Cottages accommodate our homebuyers who want to downsize and enjoy the freedom of a maintenance-included home while enjoying the stunning natural environment and the many luxury resort-style amenities offered at The Isles of Collier Preserve.”

The Coastal Cottages floorplans are named after the region’s beautiful islands: Captiva, Marco, Sanibel and Useppa. All models include two bedrooms, two baths, and a two-car garage, with some floorplans including a den/hobby room. Home designs feature high ceilings and transom and dormer windows to maximize natural light. Additional distinctive design elements feature arched and beamed ceiling statements that define spaces, recessed lighting and much more. 

Spacious living rooms open to dining areas that seat six to eight. Well-appointed kitchens include double sinks, 42-inch upper wood cabinets, storage pantry, and a large service and seating island. Master suites feature walk-in closets and a luxurious master bathroom with double vanities, large walk-in shower and private water closet. 

The Marco is 1,806 total square feet with 1,204 square feet under air, and The Sanibel is 1,924 total square feet with 1,321 square feet under air. Both of these models feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage.  The Captiva is 2,119 total square feet with 1,466 square feet under air, and The Useppa is 2,094 total square feet with 1,378 square feet under air.  These two models include an additional den/hobby room. 

Just four miles from downtown Naples, the award-winning Isles of Collier Preserve community is inspired by nature and the timeless architecture of Old Naples. More than 1,300 acres of the community’s 2,400 acres are dedicated to natural habitat and nature preserves connected by miles of scenic recreational trails for biking and hiking and waterways for kayaking.

Amenities include The Isles Club that features a stunning zero-entry swimming pool, separate lap pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, pickleball, tennis and bocce ball courts with lighting for night play and much more. The resident-exclusive Overlook Bar & Grill, fashioned after an Old Florida waterfront bar, provides breathtaking views of the Cypress Waterway and Southwest Florida’s gorgeous sunsets. There is also a Canine Cove dog park for the enjoyment of the community’s four-legged residents.

In addition to the new Coastal Cottages, Minto offers a selection of luxury villas and single-family homes at The Isles of Collier Preserve. Homes are designed for casual contemporary living with pricing from the $400s to over $1.5 million.

Visitors can learn about The Isles of Collier Preserve at the Discovery Sales Center where they can take a virtual tour at interactive stations, tour the model homes and explore the community by bicycle or kayak.
