    Featured Luxury Home Communities: Choose Your Florida Lifestyle at Mediterra

    by Arelys Alexander

    London Bay Homes has the pleasure of working with a number of luxury home communities in Southwest Florida to provide exquisite luxury custom homes that complement the beauty, quality, and opulence of every one.  Each community has distinct characteristics to set them apart from the rest, and at Mediterra, it’s their lifestyle options that draw prospective homeowners to this coveted Naples address.

    From active and healthy living to the grand luxury of its clubhouse and the relaxation found in the trails and parks, Mediterra allows you to choose the lifestyle that suits you.  This may be why they have been named CBIA’s Community of the Year multiple times, received three Distinguished Emerald Club awards, been named No. 1 community in Florida for retirees by Best Retirement Destinations, received the 2013 Aurora Award for Best Residential/Mixed Use Land Development in the Southeast Region, and were named one of the 50 Best Golf Communities in America by Golf Digest, in addition to many other designations.  This all-inclusive luxury home community has something for everyone, ending with a quality luxury custom home from London Bay Homes.

    The Clubhouse

    The Club at Mediterra features a 32,000 square foot Clubhouse that offers fine and casual dining by an expert staff that not only recognizes you by name, but will also remember your favorite type of wine.  The Tavern at Mediterra offers casual dining with gourmet brick-oven pizzas, seasonal salads, and open-air grilled entrees by a popular lounge with a fire pit.  The Grille Room offers usual, fine, and healthy cuisine ranging from delicious soups and seasonal salads to exquisite gourmet sandwiches and first-class entrees.  The new 1,850 square-foot outdoor covered bar terrace provides members with expansive views of the luxury home community’s two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses. The bar has a permanent roof, 70 seats, 23 bar stools, and over-bar mounted televisions. The Club’s professional staff also keeps everyone entertained with a regular schedule of unique activities.

    At the Sports Club, you’ll find that members can get fit and healthy in a welcoming environment with a friendly, knowledgeable, and professional staff, as well as exceptional programming from fitness classes to individual exercise on state-of-the-art equipment.  The fitness center offers 33 group fitness classes per week with more than 300 members participating throughout the week.  Members can take part in anything from Yoga to Zumba, Crossfit, Spinning, and Titleist Performance Institute Certified Golf specific programs.  All of these active programs will allow you to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle and have even allowed Mediterra to be recognized as one of America’s Healthiest Clubs.


    The Luxury Amenities


    Mediterra offers a unique array of luxury amenities to allow residents to enjoy time-honored classics, as well as find something new in which to engage.  The two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses blend in with the nature preserves, lakes, and wetlands surrounding them, making them as beautiful as they are playable with environmentally friendly emerald-green turf.  This specifically premium platinum paspalum grass is known for improved playability and durability, adding to the Mediterra golf experience.

    Membership opportunities in Mediterra are limited to just 225 members per 18 holes to ensure tee time availability for members. Currently, the waiting time for a golf membership is one year when you purchase an existing home in Mediterra. However, London Bay Homes has reserved a number of golf memberships for prospective homeowners that purchase a new construction home from us.  This opportunity allows you to find your new dream home and have instant access to your golf membership.

    If tennis is more your style, Mediterra has a well-rounded tennis program utilizing its seven Har-Tru tennis courts, the two-court Tennis Colosseum, and a rounded court.  These courts are framed by flowered terraces with brick walls, ornamental landscaping, a pergola, ivy-covered walls, and lighting and grass-tiered stadium seating for up to 500 spectators.

    Mediterra’s growing tennis program includes a host of educational and conditioning programs, from cardio tennis and daily clinics to league and club championship tournaments for advanced players.  The tennis program also offers private and group lessons with video analysis to help strengthen and perfect your game, as well as social mixers and junior camps.  The top-rated tennis program is so well-rounded that Mediterra has been recognized by the U.S. Tennis Association as being an Outstanding Private Facility.

    One of Mediterra’s unique amenities is their innovative bocce program.  The bocce program was created in 2010 to add diversity to the luxury home community’s amenities and now has more than 500 members, providing a hub which connects sports and golf members in a fun, social atmosphere.  Mediterra members of all skill levels take part in bocce with the use of the beautiful, nationally recognized ‘Bocce Garden’ facility, set beside the Sports Club.  The Bocce Garden provides the perfect setting to enjoy a beautiful sunny day on the two ‘Har Tru’ sub-surface irrigated courts built by famed court designer Tony Ritzman, but is lit for night play until 10:00 pm.  The sport is so popular that Mediterra has Mixed, Men’s, and Women’s leagues for tournament play.

    Mediterra also added a pickle ball program, bringing another unique sport to their grounds.  The Club at Mediterra features three Pickleball courts, each with a Laykold masters’ gel surface with oversized perimeter areas to allow each court to stand alone without interfering with play on adjacent courts.

    The Private Beach Club

    Many Naples new home communities include a golf course, clubhouse, and some other amenities similar to Mediterra, but only Mediterra combines all of those luxury amenities with a 10,000 square foot, two-story private Beach Club.  The member-owned Beach Club sits on 200 feet of private shoreline on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico where residents can enjoy a beautiful day on the beach while being catered to by a friendly and professional staff.  The Beach Club has an elevated swimming pool with a sundeck and valet service for beach chairs, umbrellas, beverage and food menus, and any other luxury akin to beach resort living.

    The 10,000 sq. ft. Mediterra Beach Club also feature culinary options with casual indoor or outdoor dining overlooking the ocean and Mediterra’s signature fine cuisine. This amenity allows  you to soak up the sun (use sunscreen!), dip your toes in the water, go for a swim, collect seashells, and enjoy Florida’s wonderful weather, while also enjoying a delicious lunch created by a stellar staff.
