Port Royal, a prestigious landmark of Naples, is considered one of the finest neighborhoods in the world. The very private single-family community is comprised of approximately 550 homes.
Port Royal real estate is a collection of luxury homes along deepwater canals or Gulf beachfront. This quiet, private community is considered one of the finest in Naples and, in some circles, the world. Most Port Royal homes provide boating enthusiasts with their own deep-water access for a variety of pleasure craft. The Port Royal Club, established in 1959 for the exclusive use of Port Royal residents provides unparalleled entertainment, exercise and relaxation opportunities.
Perfectly situated at the southern end of Naples between the Gulf and Naples Bay, most of the area was created by digging meandering wide channels and using the dredged fill to create the land. Although development work actually began in the very late 1940s, most of the original construction took place in the late 1950s and 1960s, as it became a popular community for wealthy winter residents. Some of these early structures, which were often only 2,000 or 3,000 square feet, still remain. However, as land values in Port Royal have continued to escalate, the majority of the older homes have been razed to make way for new, grandiose residences that typically have living areas ranging from 4,000 to 7,000 square feet, with some over 10,000.
