Fort Myers Seagate Development Group, LLC announced it has purchased a 4.5-acre parcel at Kitson & Partners’ Talis Park community and will create Isola Bella, an exclusive enclave of just 17 single-family waterfront home sites situated immediately adjacent to Talis Park’s Grand Piazza that showcases the iconic Great Lawn and the award-winning Vyne House clubhouse. Seagate will manage all aspects of developing the Isola Bella site, including site planning, infrastructure installation, streetscape design and installation, and landscaping. The Isola Bella home sites present spectacular water and golf course views and can accommodate estate residences from 3,500 to more than 5,000 square feet. Seagate is in the early planning stages for two furnished Isola Bella model residences designed by Rich Guzman at RG Designs. The models will feature interiors designed by Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi, an award-winning interior designer who has been named recipient of numerous Sand Dollar Awards from the Collier Building Industry Association as well the prestigious Aurora Award on multiple occasions. Seagate anticipates beginning construction of the models in first quarter 2019.
“Because of its location and magnificent views, Isola Bella will be one of Talis Park’s most exclusive neighborhoods,” said Seagate Development Group Partner James Nulf. “The community’s Grand Piazza is situated on an island at the heart of Talis Park. The name Isola Bella, Italian for Beautiful Island, pays tribute to the sheer beauty of the setting. Residents will cross Talis Park’s signature bridge that leads to the Great Lawn and Vyne House and then enter Isola Bella. The views from the neighborhood are truly one-of-a-kind. Residents will be within immediate proximity to the Great Lawn and to the dining venues, fitness center, spa, and resort-style pool at Vyne House, as well as the pro shop that serves a golf course that is consistently rated as one of the best in Florida. Kitson & Partners has created an award-winning lifestyle at Talis Park and Isola Bella’s residents will be within a short distance of the community’s amenity core while enjoying the beauty that life on the island affords. It’s a rare combination that offers a highly unique opportunity for luxury homebuyers.”
Isola Bella residents will enjoy Talis Park’s comprehensive array of amenities. Just a short distance from their doorsteps, the community’s Vyne House clubhouse was named recipient of 2 First Place and Best of Show honors in the New Construction/Private Club category in Golf Inc.’s 2016 Clubhouse of the Year competition and received CBIA’s 2016 Sand Dollar Awards for Best Clubhouse Exterior and Best Clubhouse Interior Design. Vyne House is the focal point of life at Talis Park. Its centerpiece, Vyne Court, serves as a captivating point of entry and social space. The upper level of the clubhouse features formal and casual indoor dining and al fresco dining, a market café, multiple covered terraces overlooking Talis Park’s scintillating tableau, a multi-purpose room, fitness studios, a wine room, board room and a spa. A resort-style pool with a spacious deck and poolside cabanas invites residents to relax and enjoy the sunshine. An outdoor rotunda with a two-sided fireplace overlooks the 18th green. The lower level of the clubhouse hosts the golf pro shop and men’s and ladies’ locker rooms.
Talis Park’s golf course is one of just two Greg Norman/Pete Dye designed courses in the world. The 133-acre layout features meticulously manicured Sea Dwarf Paspalum turf tees, fairways, roughs, and greens mowed at varying heights. The course measures 7,025 yards from the championship tees. A picturesque landscape allows for uphill and downhill hills while providing a setting similar to the valleys of Tuscany, Italy.
At the south end of the community, Talis Park’s Casa Cortese features a sports pub-style atmosphere adjacent to the community’s pristine driving range. Casa Cortese includes indoor and outdoor lounge areas with casual dining, a golf simulator that is available for individual practice sessions or private lessons with the golf staff, darts, billiards, shuffleboard, and multiple televisions.
Talis Park’s newest amenity is the Beach Runner, the community’s exclusive beach shuttle that whisks members away to the pristine Vanderbilt Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The Beach Runner shuttle is stationed at the Vyne House clubhouse adjacent to the Great Lawn.
