Naples luxury homebuilder Diamond Custom Homes has announced the commencement of construction for a 13,268 total square foot estate home on the corner of Seabreeze Avenue and Gulf Shore Drive.

Situated on an oversized, southern exposure corner lot just 300 yards from Vanderbilt Beach, the three-story, six-bedroom, six- and one half-bath residence will feature design by Rich Guzman, Principal Residential Designer of R.G. Designs, interior design by Tina Margrander of Tina-Marie Interiors, custom cabinetry by EDGE Cabinet and Space Creators, and landscape architecture by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design. The lot faces west, with non-beach frontage on Gulf Shore Drive, and includes a private boat dock with 13,000 lb. lift. Garage entries will be located off Seabreeze Ave. on the home’s north side; the south side of the home is situated on a canal with Gulf access. The original residence, built in 1989, was razed in October 2020 to allow for the construction of a new custom estate designed to accommodate family and guests, as well as multiple outdoor decks and 90-degree sliding glass doors to maximize Gulf, beach and canal views and indoor/outdoor living.

“The client’s goals for this home were to create a perfect, family-friendly place to enjoy plentiful Gulf, beach and water views, indoor/outdoor living opportunities and southwest Florida’s relaxed lifestyle,” said Diamond Custom Homes President, Michael Diamond. “This is an exciting project for our team, and we look forward to creating the ultimate ‘beach pad’ for this client.”

At completion, the home will offer 6,532 air-conditioned square feet. Bifurcated staircases will extend from the home’s ground floor to the first floor, and also from the second to the third floors, accessible from the kitchen area elevator. Laundry rooms will be located on both the first and second living levels.

The home’s ground floor will consist of a lower entry foyer, beach room, four-car garage, covered patio, and beach patio in 5,048 square feet.
