    Luxury Homes With a View: The Benefits of Building On Your Lot

    by Gina Watters

    There are many options from which to choose when you are building a new luxury home and deciding where to build probably ranks the highest on your list of priorities. The main question with this step is choosing whether you want to live in a master-planned community or build a home on your lot. Since London Bay Homes has the privilege of being a preferred builder in luxurious and exclusive club communities and also builds luxury homes on your lot anywhere in Naples and Sarasota, we know a thing or two about finding the right fit. We have already explored finding the right community, so let’s talk about why building a home on your lot may be a better option for some homeowners.

    The Land

    Choosing to find your perfect home site outside of a community will allow you to not only choose the piece of property on which you would like to build, but it also frees you up to bigger pieces of land in prime locations with views you may not be able to find in a community. London Bay Homes currently has a number of home sites available in the coveted neighborhoods of Old Naples, Port Royal, Aqualane Shores, Moorings and Park Shore areas in Naples, some with gorgeous model homes already planned. The Claremont, Anguilla, and Chelston are three of the model homes planned for these areas, but there are also home sites available for your One-of-a-Kind home. And the best part is that all of these homes are just a short walk from Naples’ beautiful white sandy beaches.

    In Sarasota, you can enjoy island living with home sites available in Longboat Key, Siesta Key, and Bird Key with access to award-winning beaches and a short drive to the riveting lifestyle found on the Sarasota mainland. The Solymar, Somerset, and Mandeville model homes are already in the works to offer you a complete on-your-lot package.

    The Customization

    Building a home with London Bay Homes always gives you the option of a fully-customizable floor plan or a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, but choosing to build on your lot provides ample room to build a home that is truly unique. Outside of a community, you can choose your own style, tie in a unique layout to fit your family, or create a grand outdoor space complete with a tennis court, extra detached garage, or just ample garden space for peaceful strolls. Building a home on your lot can allow you to purchase as many acres as you need to fit in everything you want and leave room to enclose yourself in a cocoon of privacy and security.

    Another great customization option available when you build on your own lot is the option of utilizing that extra space to build a guest house, an office not connected to your main home, a storage facility, or anything else that you would like to keep separate from the main home. These extra buildings are not always an option when you build in a community and our next section will explain why.

    The Freedom

    Homeowners’ associations are something you either love or hate, and for those that are not keen on the idea of having to discuss certain things with an association, building luxury homes on your lot will always be a better option. Don’t get us wrong, a homeowners’ association certainly has its pros, such as guarding the value of your home by prohibiting certain styles, excessive clutter, or other characteristics found in some homes, they are just not for everyone. If certain restrictions are not your cup of tea, building on a lot outside of a community with a homeowners’ association is the obvious choice.

    If building on your own lot sounds like the right choice for you, your next step is choosing a luxury custom home builder that will be able to provide you with expert service and a high quality custom home in an area you desire. From prestigious neighborhoods such as Port Royal, Bay Colony, Grey Oaks, and Aqualane Shores in Naples to the affluent neighborhoods surrounding the white sandy beaches and vibrant downtown district of Sarasota, London Bay Homes’ team of experts can facilitate your custom home-building experience whether you already own a lot, are deciding between a few lots, or are just beginning your search.  Our architectural and interior design team is readily available to ensure that your next dream home is built to your specifications and on the location of your choice and, since all of our architecture and design is done in-house, you’ll never have to worry about juggling different vendors.
