Urban Chic : Luxury Living With Walkability


This chic Naples retreat caters to those desiring a luxury urban lifestyle—fine restaurants, boutique shopping, and cultural events are all within walking distance; beautiful white sand beaches and some of the best golf courses in the country are just a short drive away.

The two-story Le Parc home in the Residences at Mercato is designed for buyers who want the privacy of a single-family home with the benefits of living adjacent next to one of Naples’ hottest lifestyle locations, “You don’t need the overhead amenities of a condo community,” explains Mike Hoyt, the developer’s Senior Vice President, “because you have a private pool in your luxury home and everything you could want is a walk away. You can take advantage of the nightlife and then stroll home.”

Matthew Kragh of MHK Architecture and Planning designed the entire enclave of homes. Kragh has built his career on coastal contemporary designs which borrow from Old Florida and West Indies architecture. Le Parc includes Kragh’s clean lines, signature bracketing, and most notably the white exteriors because, as Kragh says, “White is timeless.”

Clive Daniel Home’s Charlie Hansen and Rebekah Errett-Pikosky completed the interior design, working with an organic palette of creamy linens, yellow and green mustards, rich espressos, and grays. “We wanted chic, clean lines, and no fussiness—the scale of each piece works with the sizing of the rooms,” explains Errett-Pikosky.

Spacious and bright, the home features a gourmet kitchen that segues to a dramatic two-story great room where pocketing sliders lead to a courtyard and private pool—a seamless transition between spaces. The owner’s suite is just beyond, with its own entrance to the pool and private terraces. Upstairs, a gallery catwalk separates two en suite bedrooms from a loft, an additional en suite bedroom, and a bonus room.

The owner’s bathroom floors are Ultra Modern Colorbody porcelain in Progressive Gray.

Cabinets include vessel sinks, extra-wide drawers, and custom slatted shelves. Accent walls behind the DXV bath tub and the glass enclosed shower feature polished strips and matte chips of the same porcelain as the floor. The visual contrast of dark, architectural metallic frames, in this case around the mirror, repeat the theme seen throughout the home.

The simple yet elegant natural linen-upholstered Braxon Culler bed is right at home with the textured, wide-plank wood floors and the multi-tiered tongue-and-groove tray ceiling.  A Noir desk with dramatic curved legs is paired with a linen-upholstered ebony chair with nail-head detail. The Sherwin-Williams Dorian Gray-painted walls create a backdrop for eclectic art hung salon-style. The room has subtle plum accents, from a custom bench along the wall, to the custom drapery panels with dusty plum undertones. Sliding doors lead to a Juliet balcony.

The landscape and pool amplify the home’s elegance with clean linear rectangular lines, a wet-wall feature, and an elevated spa with a two-sided edgeless waterfall. Conifer Jasmine vines climb the privacy walls, creating an architecturally attractive grid pattern. Selective placement of palm trees complements the hardscape elements and reinforces the clean transitional coastal experience. The shellstone pool deck has an outdoor kitchen, Pelican Reef outdoor furniture, and a concrete table by Seasonal Living. Surya pillows provide pops of color.
