NAPLES, FL (August 8, 2019) – A masterfully built outdoor oasis in a home built by Gulfshore Homes, an award-winning builder that has elevated the luxury home market over the last 20 years in SW Florida, was recently chosen by popular vote as the Ultimate Outdoor Escape in HGTV’s Ultimate House Hunt 2019 Winning Homes contest.

The 7,571-sq. ft., five-bedroom luxury residence located in Mediterra was built by Gulfshore Homes in late 1990s and includes several lush outdoor living spaces, an outdoor kitchen, bar and entertainment area with fireplace, an expansive custom-designed pool with elevated hot tub, dramatic focal lighting, and eight circular tropical palm islands that appear to orbit within the pool. The winning Ultimate Outdoor Escape built by Gulfshore Homes was chosen among 10 amazing entries located throughout the United States.

“I knew this home was special and would be deserving of awards when we built it,” said Steve Watt, President and Founder of Gulfshore Homes. “This national recognition affirms all the hard work our team puts in to every luxury residential property that we are fortunate to custom build.”

The home is currently listed for $4,500,000 with the Bua Bell Group, a division of John R. Wood Properties. View HGTV’s Ultimate Outdoor Escape winner at
