How beautiful land becomes a neighborhood at The Enclave of Distinction


Steve Fiterman, developer and founder of Distinctive Communities™, researched plots throughout Southwest Florida to find the perfect place to create the Enclave of Naples. He found it nestled between Mediterra and Talis Park on Livingston Road north of Naples. Too small for the large multi-family communities that rise east of I-75, the 18 acres of land presented an ideal location for this exclusive new development of luxurious, large single-family homes. Add easy freeway access and proximity to Naples’ major shops, restaurants, beaches and community parks, and the Enclave of Distinction has quickly become a shoppers’ dream destination.

Location, location, location is always the most important factor to consider when building a new home, Fiterman says. “It gives you the freedom to be exactly where you want to be. Then select a builder who shares your vision in the models they offer. Fiterman adds that the standards of Distinctive Communities™ are higher than most and evident in the completed homes of The Enclave of Distinctive.

An alternative for owners seeking the exclusivity of an upscale community without all the recreational options and huge membership or association fees that come with them, The Enclave of Distinction offers low density and a sense of community. The homes, described as coastal elegance, are designed by Naples architects Stofft-Cooney and built by one of Southwest Florida’s most trusted custom home builders, Matthew Fiterman, president of Distinctive Residential Construction. .

Distinctive Communities™ focused on essential homeowner amenities like safety instead of golf, tennis and pickleball. Safety starts at the entrance to the gatehouse made of special reinforced materials, which makes it much safer than traditional lift arms. It will function as a live guarded entry or a fully automated 24-hour unguarded entry. The homes in The Enclave of Distinction are pre-wired for internal security, lights, cameras and sound systems, plus two wireless access points. All of this is remotely controlled by mobile phone aps.

The fiber optic cable serves as the backbone of all communication services in the community. A cable partnership is secured with the fastest, most efficient Internet speed available to a residential community, provided by Hotwire® Communications.

Distinctive Communities™ has created a beautifully designed park at the entrance with a lush waterfront pavilion open to all residents. Owners of The Enclave of Distinction can plan a block party, pursue their fitness routines, find a quiet place to work or read a book and pick up the mail in this covered space that offers Wi-Fi and access gas, electricity and water. Professional caterers can transform the area for a wedding, birthday party or any other memorable social occasion. In addition, residents enjoy plenty of open spaces for picnics, games and other outdoor activities.
