Port Royal is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the world, with homes priced at up to $68 million. It began in 1939, the work of John Glen Sample. Located on a peninsula south of Aqualane, the 600 homes of Port Royal were conceived as family homes with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and the Ten Thousand Islands, and many Port Royal homes have deep canal lots perfect for large boats and yachts. Seventy-five years later, there are 500 homes, built and rebuilt to exhibit a range of architectural influences; there are mansions reminiscent of Key West cottages, Italianate villas, and striking modernist structures. The Port Royal Club features tennis, fitness and beachfront activities along with a vibrant social community and fine dining. Port Royal is convenient to Old Naples, the nightlife of downtown Naples, the shopping on bustling 5th Ave and charming 3rd Street. The art galleries of downtown Naples are close as well. Naples and its artists have earned a reputation as one of the “best art towns” in the US.
