Custom home designer and builder Mark Perry of KenMark Construction Inc. has completed a new home in the Aqualane Shores neighborhood of Naples.
Valued at $4.35 million, this residence exudes elegance on an impressive scale. Emulating a 17th-century castle, this home features imported 17th century antique stone millennium planks throughout the soaring expanse of the main grand area on the first floor with Mediterranean mahogany wood by Westerlies mingled subtly throughout the first and second floors.
Inside This Meticulously Built Home
The elevator takes you to the second floor which offers views of the outdoor features from its cantilevered balcony. The entry, lined with imported antique carved limestone, brings you into the open concept grand room surrounded by 8-by-16-inch and 8-by-12- inch solid cypress beams, arches, and bents in the clear-story 24-foot high ceiling.
KenMark Construction focused meticulously on the many luxury appointments, finishes, and enhancements. This home features solid masonry construction and their signature imported carved Brazilian mahogany interior doors and millwork.
This home offers four bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths in the 4,996-square-foot under air home. It features two gas fireplaces with imported antique limestone mantles and surrounds and a 500-gallon buried propane tank to service the gas Wolf appliances and outdoor grill center.

More details that illustrate KenMark Construction’s attention to detail are the imported antique Arcane stone collection of 17th-century cladding which covers several walls throughout the interior of the home including a 24-foot high grand area wall surrounding the 60-inch custom designed stone fireplace.
The grand area flows effortlessly into the well-appointed chef’s kitchen, featuring custom knotty pine, leather finish, medium distressed cabinetry designed by Kitchens by Clay. Imported 2-½-inch thick antique limestone slabs, reclaimed from seawalls from the island of Malta as counter tops, are encompassed above by the unique arching ceiling cladded with imported 12th-century Biblos Stone Collection from Europe.
The master suite is a private retreat featuring a sitting area and views of the outdoor oasis with vine-covered imported Tuscan stone cladded walls and copper Tuscan gas lanterns by Copper Designs, all shaded by solid cypress beams of the vine-draped pergola. The spa-like master bath includes a jetted soaking tub with 2 ½-inch thick imported antique limestone slabs as the tub deck. His and her private shower lined with imported antique 17th century Arcane stone and separate his and her commode rooms complete this luxury retreat.

The substantial outdoor living area, flanked by the custom built stone gas fireplace cladded with imported 17th century Arcane stone and surrounded by the antique reclaimed carved limestone surround and mantle, is ideal for entertaining and relaxing. In addition, the outdoor living area is protected from bugs by the hidden automatic roll-up screen and protected from the weather by the hidden automatic roll-up shutter systems, both with hidden rollers and tracks to make them virtually invisible.
