Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s Harris-Peppe Team Sells Waterfront Port Royal Estate for $5.75 Million


1399326729NAPLES, FL – Coldwell Banker Previews International® property specialists Chip Harris and Michele Peppe, known as The Harris-Peppe Team, have closed on 3999 Rum Row in prestigious Port Royal for $5.750 million. The Harris-Peppe Team secured a signed contract on the property within three weeks, despite the property being marketed unsuccessfully by another brokerage for three years. This is the 11th Port Royal sale of over $5 million this year, which is an increase from only 7 properties for the same time period last year.

“We are seeing a tremendous amount of activity in Naples from international buyers looking for vacation homes, second homes and investment properties,” said Michele Peppe. “This buyer was from Canada, which is still our leading international market, but we’re also seeing buyers from Russia, the Middle East, China, Germany and other countries. Naples is truly a global destination for the affluent, and they love the selection of waterfront homes that are found in Port Royal.”

Located in the prestigious Port Royal community, the house sits on over a half-acre of waterfront property that includes a dock with lift, direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and private pool overlooking the water. The more than 7,800-square-foot property begins with a grand entranceway featuring a sweeping staircase and fine woodworking details. Offering five bedrooms, five baths and two half-baths, the home boasts a first-floor master suite that connects to a mahogany paneled library, as well as a top-floor media room and custom office.
