PINE RIDGE ESTATES – Size and Location Matter in Naples, Florida

Pine Ridge Estates enjoys a combination that no other neighborhood in Naples can boast about – big lot size and great location.


By Naples standards, the properties are huge. All of the lots are at least an acre with many in the 1.5 to 1.75 acre range. Oversized lots are typically 2 to 3 acres. The smallest lot in Pine Ridge is twice to four times as big as the properties in other upscales neighborhoods like Port Royal, Park Shore, Moorings or Coquina Sands…….at a fraction of the land cost. As you would expect with such big properties in an established community, the landscaping is lush and mature. Feel free to build as big a home as you please and still have plenty of green space, open yard and elbow room. With large lot sizes, you will recognize that everything has a pleasing proportion regardless of the size of the homes. By comparison with the trend in neighborhoods west of 41 maximizing the footprint with 10′ setbacks from the side boundaries, you have generous space between you and your neighbor. If size matters to you, Pine Ridge is the only neighborhood with large lots that are this close in.

Location? Pine Ridge is convenient to everything and yet the streets are quiet and strictly residential. Minutes from Vanderbilt Beach and Delnor-Wiggins State Beach Park as well as marinas and boating access to the Gulf of Mexico. Mercato offers restaurants, nightlife, a movie theater, shops and boutiques right around the corner.
