Best-selling author Janet Evanovich is selling her one-of-a-kind Florida home for $17 million
Naples, Florida, is known for its coastal fine dining, white sand beaches and chic shops. It's also the setting of this amazing mega home on Nelsons Walk in the Port Royal neighborhood, which is on the market for $17 million dollars by best-selling author Janet Evanovich and her husband. Evanovich is a prolific, 76-year-old writer known for her long-running "Stephanie Plum" mystery series. She was even in Orlando for a book signing in November. Her last 17 books all debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times' best-sellers list.
The six bedroom, six-bath, 11,054-square-foot home has three extra half bathrooms for guests, as well as dark wood floors and detailed crown molding. Artistic chandeliers light up the dining room and the entryway. The open floor plan includes split bedrooms and an art gallery, as well as a wet bar with lighted cabinets and chef-designed gourmet kitchen with multiple Sub Zero side by side refrigerator-freezers. The master retreat features a private outside balcony, enormous walk-in closets, a separate dressing area and ultra-modern master bathroom.
There's even a home theatre and guest housing with a separate entrance, and a large outdoor patio area with a landscaped back yard, lanais with electric screens, new boat dock, a lift for kayaks and jet skis, and a saltwater infinity edge pool. Combined with the spa and fire pit, you'd feel royal living here. The home is listed by Phil Collins – of William Raveis Real Estate, not the band Genesis.
