LUXURIOUS LIVING MEETS A STORIED HISTORICAL PAST: 2325 LANTERN LANE IS ON THE MARKET
NAPLES, FLORIDA | January 18, 2024 – Gulf Coast International Properties® (GCIP) is pleased to announce Shaun Dalton, Realtor, representing the seller of one of Naples most unique homes, 2325 Lantern Lane.
One of Naples’ most unique homes with a captivating history is up for sale. Built 25 years ago, this Port Royal southern classic oozes coastal charm and is endowed with rare historic elements including the legacy of a famous American family.
The previous owner of this luxurious residence is part of the prominent Briggs family. American industrialist, Stephen F. Briggs I, one half of the 110-year-old Briggs & Stratton Manufacturing company, came to Naples in 1936 and along with his family, has left a legacy and lengthy list of gifts to the community. A small sampling includes the founding of Naples Community Hospital in 1956, which the Briggs family have generously continued to support through donations of millions of dollars through the decades; Trinity by the Cove Episcopal church in 1949; the Naples Yacht Club in 1947; and major expansion of the City including 13 miles of pavement, parks, beach protection and mosquito control in 1949, among other notable accomplishments.
Preserving the family’s history and instilling it into the distinctive character of this special home was paramount for the notable architects and designers who collaborated when it was built in 1998. David Humphry Architects, Jon Kukk Architect, Matt Joyner Architect, and Joe Frontiero of Frontier Custom Home worked seamlessly together to ensure this special home would retain its original characteristics that make it a true standout property in Port Royal today.
Situated on a large lot and a half overlooking beautiful Lantern Lake, this custom residence with timeless appeal has many unique qualities including a rare two bed, two bath guest house, a sweeping wraparound west-facing front porch with swing and sitting area for catching sunsets, and nearly 3,000 square feet of covered outdoor living spaces. The two 70-foot screened porches allow for sweeping views over the lake and are highlighted by stunning Florida Cypress hardwood ceilings.
A particularly notable feature is the reclaimed Old Chicago brick covering the outdoor areas. This is truly special as the reclaimed brick possesses the patina of historic burn marks and stamps from the Great Fire of Chicago in 1871, bringing a touch of history to this incredible home.
This remarkable turnkey home has been lovingly cared for and is ready for new ownership. For more information, please call Shaun Dalton at Gulf Coast International Properties at (239) 248-1907 or firstname.lastname@example.org
