Five Must Haves in Luxury High-End Condos

Luxury high-end condos come with a larger price tag, so it’s important to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth. Here are six must-haves for luxury, high-end condos that will ensure it’s a worthy investment.

Quattro Naples Square

Premier location

The first must-have for high-end condos is a premier location. However, what’s premier to one person may not be the same for another. It’s important to define premier in your own words before you begin your search. Is a premier high-end condo for you located on the beach or a short walk to a downtown area with upscale restaurants and luxury shopping? Whatever defines a premier location for you, be sure your high-end condo finds itself right in the middle of it.

Top-of-the-line appliances

Top-of-the-line appliances go hand-in-hand with high-end condos and in large part, helps set them apart from others. When it comes to top-of-the-line appliances, be sure to do a little homework beforehand and take the appliance selection into consideration when choosing your new home.

New construction

Yes, there are high-end condos that were built in years past. But the most up-to-date, trendy and worthy of your hard-earned money are those that are newly constructed. Not to mention, with new construction, you’re the first to live there so you won’t inherit any previous owner’s problems. Also, new construction condos tend to be built with better hurricane protection, which is a huge benefit for life in Florida. 

Large and open floor plans

An added benefit of new construction condos is they are more in tune with today’s architectural trends, meaning most have large and open floor plans. Because you don’t want to feel like you’re living in a shoe box in your high-end condo, large and open floor plans of at least 2,000 square feet will guarantee a lifestyle you’ll find comfortable.

Luxury amenities

You’re not just paying for the space in which you live, but the amenity package is part of that price tag. Your high-end condo should come with high-end, luxury amenities befitting a condominium of this nature. Read here for some amenities you should look for when exploring your various residential options. 

Before moving to Naples, Florida, consider the points above and then begin your search for the perfect home. When you’re ready to look, make it easier on yourself by looking at Quattro at Naples Square first. You may find it the first and only choice for a high-end condo.

What to Know Before Moving to Naples, Florida

Naples, Florida has long been known for its low stress level and high quality of life. If you’re considering moving to where many consider as heaven on Earth for its historic downtown, white, sandy beaches, championship golf, premier shopping and exquisite restaurants, here are three key things to know.

Naples, FL Sunset

You can enjoy all the seasons

Many see Naples as a town where the ‘snowbirds’ flock to, spending just a portion of the year. Whether you choose to live here part or full-time, Naples is a town for all seasons and you can enjoy life to the fullest on a year-round basis. Receiving on average 2,900 hours of sunlight per year, residents of Naples enjoy high temperatures in the upper 70s in December and winters rarely drop below the mid-50s. While the summers do get hot with highs in the 90s and lows in the 70s, it’s nothing that a dip in the pool can’t fix.

Health, wellness, sports and recreation are abundant

Southwest Florida is renowned for its beaches and for many, that’s enough. However, people who live in Naples also have access to premier healthcare like the NCH Healthcare System which operates two hospitals and six clinics. The Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida is also found in Collier County and is known for its quality for family care, internal medicine, pediatrics, dental, behavioral and specialty care. Physicians Regional Medical Center also operates two hospitals in the county.

In terms of wellness and recreation, Naples is an outdoor paradise. While long walks on the beach are a great way to spend time outdoors, the city also has plenty of parks and walking trails to take advantage of.

Naples is one of the golf capitals of the world and as such, staying active is both fun and easy. While there are plenty of championship courses — both public and private — to choose from, there are many other sports to enjoy in the area as well. The Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins host their Spring Training Camps in neighboring Fort Myers. The Florida Everblades, a minor league ice hockey team affiliated with the Nashville Predators and Milwaukee Admirals, also calls Fort Myers home.

Consider the neighborhood you’d like to live in

Consisting of just 16 square miles, Naples is composed of several close-knit neighborhoods. Familiarizing yourself with the various neighborhoods such as Aqualane Shores, Port Royal and Olde Naples will help you gain a better understanding of the communities, price of the homes and benefits to each.
