Home/Custom Homes


In 2016, A. Vernon Allen Builder (AVA), established in 1951, is celebrating 65 years as one of the finest and most reputable custom homebuilders in Naples, offering an unparalleled level of quality and service for our clients over the past six decades.

AVA was selected by Naples’ pioneer Glen Sample as his first recommended builder for a unique enclave of homes he was developing known as Port Royal in the early 1950s. This community features some of the most exquisite and prestigious properties in the country and attracts residents from all around the world including celebrities, athletes and high profile business leaders that we’ve been honored to call our clients. We are proud to have been involved in the construction of more than 100 home sites within the community and have enjoyed working with multiple generations of client families.

The vision and mission of AVA that was formulated in the early days of Port Royal established standards of quality that principals Ryan Benson and Andy Bringardner have not wavered from. We continue to focus on custom homes and luxury remodels for the most discerning clients and, in addition to Port Royal, specialize in the neighborhoods of Old Naples, Park Shore and Moorings.

A. Vernon Allen Builder is recognized for our unique focus on the client experience.  We ensure an extraordinary product using the latest technologies, construction methods and finest craftsmen, with a focus on the highest level of service and quality.  Clients are able to interact with the project team, led by a principal in our firm, in weekly meetings, track the schedules provided, and keep all financial matters in line with detailed budgets throughout the project. Virtual meetings are frequent, as many of our clients or their professionals may not be based locally in Naples. You can be assured of the exceptional level of attention your project will receive.

Our typical custom homes are more than $1 million, with many being more than $5 million, and several other projects more than $20 million.

AVA also offers full-service concierge estate management programs that can be customized for clients to enjoy their homes the way they are meant to be in one of the best places in the country to live, work and play.
