FREE Design Seminar: “Naples Beach Homes: Cottages, Castles and the Families That Built Them”

March 15 at 11 AM
RSVP by Friday, March 11

Ever wonder about the homes on Naples Beach? If you have been to Naples, you may have driven along Gulf Shore Boulevard and Gordon Drive to view the amazingly diverse houses on the beach. These homes range from the modest single-story cottages built decades ago, to the modern multi-story mansions that tower high above the sand. Yet these single-family residences all have one thing in common. Each looks out over the beach to the sparkling Gulf of Mexico, and each property has a story to tell.

Naples residents Robert and Carole Leher have spent the past three years talking with homeowners and gathering their stories about living on the beach. Join as they share some of the stories from their recently-published, 252-page coffee table book, Naples Beach Homes: Cottages, Castles, and The Families That Built Them.
