When Aura at Metropolitan Naples, the only tower overlooking Downtown Naples, the Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, launched its marketing effort earlier this year, it had five penthouses available. Today, the popular tower has only two penthouses remaining and both will offer its owners an incredible indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
“Aura’s floor plans were all designed for entertaining family and friends and its Penthouse Residences take the entertainment factor and the indoor/outdoor living lifestyle to the highest level,” remarked Jerry Starkey, who along with fellow long-time Naples resident and veteran developer, Fred Pezeshkan, are developing Metropolitan Naples.
“Throughout the year, and especially the winter months, we’re welcoming guests into our homes. What better place to get the conversations started then stepping out onto your private terrace with seating areas and the outdoor grill.”
Perhaps nowhere is that more true than the Penthouse 5. Located on the 5th floor along with many of Aura’s fine amenities such as the indoor/outdoor residents’ lounges, luxury guest suite and large putting green, it just might be the epitome of indoor/outdoor living.
That’s because Penthouse 5 has four balcony/terrace spaces that total 1,526 square feet. Add that to the residence itself, which has 3,768 square feet under air, and the total living area for the available Penthouse unit reaches 5,304 total square feet.
The amazing landscaped terrace of Penthouse 5, with a number of 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 home.
“The terrace itself wraps around nearly the entire length of the outside of the penthouse residence,” noted Starkey. “One can walk from the owner’s suite to the formal living room and never take a step inside. That’s just one of the special features of this incredible plan. Another is its Owner’s Suite showers – one inside and one outside that is lusciously landscaped for privacy, like those offered in some uber-luxurious tropical resort suites.”
Penthouse 5 is located on the tower’s 5th level and is priced at $4.9 million.
Located on the 15th floor, the only other remaining penthouse is
Penthouse 2, is a three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath plan with 3,365 total square feet, including two terraces. One terrace is off the Owner’s Suite and the other opens the living room and kitchen area to the outdoors. That’s convenient because this terrace is where you’ll find the outdoor grill.
At Aura, every floor plan has at least one terrace. Some have multiple. Some guest bedrooms also feature their own private balconies.
“The connectivity between the indoor living area and the outdoor living area is key to our future resident’s Floridian- lifestyle,” noted Ed Gonzalez, the project’s Director of Sales.
Aura at Metropolitan Naples features just 56 two-, three- and four-bedroom luxury residences, many with a den, ranging in size from 1,898 to 3,923 total living area. Prices range from $1.9 to over $6 million.
Residential features include expansive floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balcony doors, porcelain and wood floor selections, wine walls and wet bars per plan, fine custom cabinetry, great rooms designed to maximize outdoor views and outdoor living areas with gas-grilling stations and two secure garages spaces per residence.
The Chef-inspired gourmet kitchens, also designed for socializing, include a large workstation, dining islands and top-of-the-line appliances.
All owner suites feature luxurious baths with his and her vanities, large walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs.
It’s not just the luxurious penthouses and residences that are attracting buyers, it’s also Aura’s incredible amenities, including its infinity pool, located on the tower’s roof.
Aura features the highest pool in the downtown area and is the only sky pool offering residents and their guests picturesque views of downtown Naples, the reflective waters of Naples Bay and the azure and white waves of the Gulf of Mexico.
However, the infinity pool isn’t the only rooftop amenity. Those who love to exercise will also rejoice at the fact the state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio are also there.
High above the ground and offering incredible views through the floor to ceiling glass windows, residents will enjoy working out on outstanding fitness equipment or pushing through the most demanding or relaxing yoga routines, from the perfect perspective.
Also, just steps away from the infinity pool is another amazing amenity – an outdoor lounge with bar. It’s rooftop location just may create a whole new meaning to the term – highball.
The other lifestyle amenities at Aura are also phenomenal and designed for the total enjoyment of residents.
On the 5th floor are the indoor and outdoor residents’ lounges, a luxurious overnight guest suite, a business center and conference room, outdoor kitchen with grilling area, a seating area and fire pits as well as a large golf putting green destine to witness many friendly conversations and deep debates while working – not so hard – on the “short” game.
Two private and secure, in-building parking spaces for homeowners are included, with convenient electric-vehicle charging stations available.
Aura’s rooftop and 5th floor amenities are capturing the imaginations of future residents – as are several additional benefits of living in the tower.
By simply taking the elevator down a few floors from their residences, owners can enjoy casual and fine dining restaurants, as well as explore the distinctive shops and boutiques planned for the street level of Metropolitan Naples.
