Naples’ newest luxury tower, Aura at Metropolitan Naples, has been very popular with buyers. Aura offers 56 luxury residences and is located on a 5.3-acre parcel at the intersection of Fifth Avenue South and Davis Boulevard, a short walk or bike ride from downtown Naples.
Its popularity with buyers can be attributed to a number of reasons. Aura’s amazing location is definitely one. Just like its beautifully designed open floor plans and impressive amenities, both on the tower roof and on the 5th floor.
In fact, the 5th floor is where you’ll find Aura’s resident lounges, one inside and one outside. The Resident Lounges are just two specially designed socializing areas to give residents a place to entertain friends and family, as well as meet their tower neighbors.
Other socializing areas on the 5th floor include an outdoor hot tub and outdoor kitchen with a grilling area, as well as a lounge area with fire pits and a large golf green.
Aura’s rooftop also features a number of socializing areas.
One is the terrace that surrounds the rooftop infinity pool, the tallest pool in downtown Naples. It offers residents and their guests picturesque views of downtown Naples, the beautiful reflective waters of the Bay of Naples, and the azure white waves of the Gulf of Mexico.
Residents can also socialize in the fitness center or rooftop yoga studio while they work out or de-stress.
Plus, just steps from the infinity pool is another amazing socializing space – an outdoor lounge with bar, the perfect spot to cool off and watch a glorious Naples sunset.
Borges Architects, an award-winning, world-class architectural and consulting firm, has been hired to bring the metropolis of Naples to life. The leading real estate architectural firm is known for its creative designs in the United States as well as in several cities around the world.
Aura comprises a mix of beautifully designed two, three and four bedroom residences, many with a den. Prices range from $2 to over $6 million.
Residences include expansive floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balcony doors, porcelain and wood flooring selections, wine walls and wet bars by plan, beautiful custom cabinetry, large bedrooms designed to maximize exterior views, outdoor living areas with grilling stations and two garage spaces per unit.
Chef-inspired kitchens include a large workstation, dining islands, and high-end appliances such as Wolf gas cooktops and Sub-Zero refrigeration.
All owner’s suites offer expansive views, walk-in closets and luxurious bathrooms with his and hers vanities, private toilets, large walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs.
Two penthouses are also available.
One is located on the 15th floor of Aura and is known as Penthouse 2. The three-bedroom plus one-den/three-and-a-half-bath home has a total area of 3,365 square feet under air, plus two terraces. One terrace is next to the owner’s suite and the other opens the living room and kitchen to the outside. It’s convenient because this terrace is where you will find the outdoor grill.
“Other highlights of the plan,” according to Ed Gonzalez, project sales manager, “include a chef-inspired gourmet kitchen with a large island, luxurious cabinetry, high-quality gas cooktops from Wolf and a sleek Sub-Zero refrigeration, guest suites with private bathrooms, oversized laundry room with state-of-the-art washer and dryer, and master bathrooms with private toilets, showers, and separate tubs.”
Penthouse 2 is priced at $5 million.
The other Penthouse is located on the 5th floor of the tower and a short walk to many of the building’s fun and thoughtful amenities.
Penthouse 5 on the 5th floor has terrace spaces totaling 1,526 square feet. Add that to the residence itself, which has 3,768 square feet under air, and the total living area of the Penthouse unit available reaches 5,304 square feet in total.
Penthouse 5’s incredible landscaped terrace, with multiple seating areas and the grill, is accessible from the residence’s living room, kitchen, and owner’s suite and offers extraordinary views of paradise from three different sides of the house.
“The terrace itself wraps almost the entire length of the exterior of the penthouse residence,” Gonzalez said. “One can walk from the owner’s suite to the formal living room without ever stepping inside.”
This is just one of the peculiarities of this incredible plan. Another is its Owner’s Suite showers – one inside and one outside.
“The one outside is lavishly appointed for privacy, like those offered in some ultra-luxury tropical resort suites,” Gonzalez recalls.
The Penthouse 5 is priced at $4.9 million.
Aura’s floor plans have all been designed to entertain family and friends and its Penthouse residences take the entertainment factor and indoor/outdoor lifestyle to an even higher level.
“Throughout the year, and especially during the winter months, we welcome guests into our homes,” Gonzalez noted. “What better place to strike up conversations than stepping out onto your private patio with seating areas and the outdoor BBQ.”
Metropolitan Naples is developed by Fred Pezeshkan and Jerry Starkey, two of Naples’ most respected residents and veteran developers.
