Since its launch, the spectacular amenities available at Aura at Metropolitan Naples have been one of the main reasons for its popularity with buyers – and why so many of them have decided to make the 15-story high-rise tower near downtown Naples their new home.
In addition to its amazing amenities, including an infinity rooftop pool with fitness center, yoga studio and even an outdoor lounge, plus the other first-class amenities on the tower’s 5th floor including a putting green, buyers have also spoken in depth about the high-rise tower’s residences, the floor plan designs and all the incredible interior and exterior features.
“The flow of the floor plans has been very well received,” said Ed Gonzalez, the Director of Sales for Metropolitan Naples. “The architects created a variety of plans that offer a terrific lifestyle without giving up Aura’s world-class contemporary and sophisticated exterior design. When entering the residence, one will feel the WOW factor immediately.”
Although there are many incredible features throughout every residence, perhaps the room mentioned the most often is the gourmet kitchen.
“Buyers have told me that the design and layout of our kitchens is reflective of the way they live today,” Gonzalez recalled. “It’s a multifunctional space with the oversized kitchen being a great location to prepare and share meals with family and friends. Not only during the holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, but also throughout the entire year and every special occasion. The most discriminating chefs will love our kitchens.”
Another unique interior feature buyers love are the floor to ceiling windows found throughout the residence.
“The floor to ceiling glass windows are a great feature. They not only allow the owners and their guests to take in the picturesque views from every direction, but by opening the sliding glass doors they also allow the owners to bring the outside in for great circulation and entertaining,” noted Gonzalez.
Other residential features buyers say they love include the porcelain and wood floor selections, the wine walls and wet bars per plan, as well as the fine cabinetry.
The Chef-inspired gourmet kitchens also include top-of-the-line appliances, while all Owner Suites feature luxurious baths with his and her vanities, large walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs.
As impressive as Aura’s interior features are, buyers are also commenting on the residence’s exterior features, which they can’t wait to enjoy.
“Aura’s floor plans were designed for entertaining family and friends and for promoting the indoor/outdoor lifestyle Florida is known for,” Gonzalez said. “That’s why many buyers are thrilled with the size of Aura’s outdoor terraces, which also include many features such as seating areas and even a grill.”
“Throughout the year, and especially the winter months, we’ve welcomed many guests into our home,” stated a future Aura resident. “What better place to catch up with visiting friends and family than stepping onto our own private terrace.”
Perhaps nowhere is that more true than at Penthouse 5, which is located on the tower’s 5th floor, just steps away from all the previously mentioned 5th floor amenities.
Penthouse 5 features four balcony/terrace spaces that total an incredible 1,526 square feet. Another memorable feature of Penthouse 5 are the Owner’s Suite showers – one inside and one outside and lusciously landscaped for privacy, like those offered in some uber-luxurious tropical resort suites.
This beautiful penthouse is priced at $5.1 million.
On the 15th floor is a residence known as Penthouse 2. The three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath home has 3,365 total square feet under air, plus 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.
“Other highlights of the plan,” according to Gonzalez, “include a gourmet Chef-inspired kitchen with large island, luxurious cabinetry, high-quality gas cooktops by Wolf and sleek Sub-Zero refrigeration, guest suites with private baths, oversized laundry room with state-of-the-art washer and dryer, and master baths with private water closet, a shower and separate soaking tub.”
Penthouse 2 is priced at $5.35 million.
Aura 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 $2.2 to over $6 million.
Another popular and outstanding tower feature is the location for resident parking – which is high above the ground level.
“All residences receive two assigned parking spaces and in a safe and secure concrete garage located on the second, third or fourth floors,” Gonzalez noted.
“The ability to park our cars in a strong, safe environment between 15 to 30 feet above FEMA gives us peace-of-mind that our vehicles will be protected from the elements,” stated a future Aura resident.
