Stock Custom Homes, one of Southwest Florida’s most highly respected luxury home builders, has a furnished model available to tour and purchase in the beautiful, upscale community of Quail West. 

The Newport is a four-bedroom plus study/four full-bath/two half-bath home with 5,837 square feet under air and 9,038 total square feet, including two two-car garages.

Since its completion, many prospective buyers have toured the model and commented on several outstanding features of the home. One of the most mentioned features is its kitchen, which can only be described as a Chef’s dream.

The kitchen has two island counters, a large walk-in pantry and an abundance of cabinetry and countertop space. Nearby is the breakfast area, a wine room and an open bar, easily accessible to the Grand Reception area.

“One of the main highlights of the kitchen, which impresses many of our visitors, is the double island counters,” stated Claudine Leger-Wetzel, vice president of sales and marketing for Stock Development, the developer of Quail West.

Leger-Wetzel added there were several reasons for designing the double islands into the floor plan.

“First, it affords more storage space, something you can never have enough of in the kitchen,” she said. “Secondly, kitchens are often the gathering place when guests come over. Having the second island creates more room for entertaining without guests being too close to the sink as food is being prepared.”

The other eye-catching feature in the kitchen is its incredibly large butler’s pantry.

“Again, it comes down to storage space. The butler’s pantry has tons of cabinetry throughout and plenty of shelves to stock up on food items. There’s even space for the kitchen’s double-drawer dishwasher.”

The kitchen may be a show stopper, but in reality the entire home is impressive from floor to ceiling – and room to gorgeous room.

From the double-door entry you step into the formal foyer. Straight ahead is the Grand Reception area with fireplace. The room also features an oval-shaped ceiling and offers a view of the pool and golf course. Facing the front of the home in this area is the formal dining area.

To the left of the Grand Reception is the home’s main living area which includes the kitchen, breakfast area, wine room and bar.

Just beyond the kitchen is the great room which has walls of sliding glass that retract back in two directions, providing direct access to the outdoor living area with a pool bath, an outdoor kitchen, island counter and plenty of lounging space facing a romantic fireplace.

A hallway off the kitchen leads to the three guest suites, each with its own walk-in closet and full bath. The laundry room is also located in this area.

On the opposite side of the Grand Reception is the half-bath, study and master retreat. The study or home office has built-in cabinetry and a set of French doors that
