Not only is Collier Reserve a private, member-owned equity club, it is more importantly designated as the world’s first Audobon International Signature Sanctuary. Amost 1/3 of the total of 450 acres of land acquired by the community is a protected natural preserve. The founder of Collier County, Barron Collier in 1923, originally acquired the land. It is nestled along one of Florida’s most pristine natural waterways, the Cochatchee River. The land is comprised of tropical flora with properties nestled very peacefully in them in the most natural setting.

Properties at Colliers Reserve range in size from one-third to three-fourths of an acre. All of the properties come with a view of either the lake or the golf course, with the exception of 15 prime home sites that have a riverfront view.

Winding along freshwater lakes and more natural preserves is the 18-hole championship golf course, designed by non other than Arthur Hills. Because it is a golf-equity club, memberships are limited to 300 so that each member is assured of enjoyment at the course at any given time.

Colliers Reserve has a number of amenities readily available for its residents. Among them are the Har-Tru tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness center and its lap pool located within its plantation-style clubhouse. The club also offers casual riverside dining at the Boathouse, a casual, formal and private dining at the Clubhouse.

There are 220 home sites at Colliers Reserve that are being maintained by a design review committee to ensure architectural standards even when each home is unique in itself and custom-designed. Although there are various architectural styles, homes in general feature stucco with tile roofs in contemporary or Mediterranean style.

Not so far away are Naples’ finest beaches, as well as the Veterans Community Park, Publix supermarkets and shopping and dining districts.

Schools in the neighborhood include Naples Park Elementary, North Naples Middle School, Gulf Coast and Barron Collier High School..
