London Bay Homes partners with luxury home communities throughout Southwest Florida to provide quality design and construction that complements the luxury living lifestyle found in each one. Through their partnership with Mediterra Naples, London Bay Homes has been present to watch the many updates and additions the Club at Mediterra has put into place to ensure their residents have a multitude of luxury amenities from which to choose, and recent changes and projected additions to community member numbers have prompted them to expand once again.
For close to 10 years now, Mediterra Naples has been revising areas of the clubhouse so residents can feel comfortable. In 2008, they added The Tavern, an outdoor seating area where guests could dine by the 19th hole of the golf course and enjoy brick oven pizzas, cold beer, big screen TVs, and a campfire in an alfresco setting. In 2013, the Club at Mediterra’s kitchen and Grille Room received updates to better serve their guests and in 2016, both the North and South versions of the Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses received improvements to improve playability and durability. Now, Mediterra is expanding and updating several other portions of The Club at Mediterra, specifically those used most often by residents, in order to provide luxury surroundings for their residents. They are also enlarging storage and staff areas to match the increase in numbers of both the members and staff. These changes will add an additional 24,000 square feet of space while allowing a renovation of an existing 7,000 square feet. Both the additions and renovations will be funded through the Club’s reserves and completed without a member assessment.
The Tavern Terrace, known for its outdoor dining and lounge area, will double in size to accommodate members and allow for seating near the golf course so you can enjoy an expansive golf view or a picturesque sunset. The current awning will be replaced with a permanent roof featuring a clerestory element to allow natural sunlight to filter into the area. After a glorious sunset dinner in the evening, guests can enjoy their dessert with an ambient glow from the coach lamps on the piers and the table fire bowls which will be visible from all seats in the new expanded outdoor bar and fire pit area. The new Fire Pit Terrace will be lowered from the current outdoor terrace to create a more intimate space and will provide enough room for 66 guests to cozy up by the fire and take in the two water feature elements on either side.
The Ballroom will also be altered to accommodate the increase in member numbers, making room for approximately 50-60 more people. This expansion will also allow residents to enjoy additional dining and lifestyle events with the addition of a Sun Room ad Garden Room. The expanded ballroom space and additional rooms can be used independently or combined for an expansive entertainment venue, and the french doors on either side of the Clerestory Tower in the Ballroom will open up to the evening breeze in the open air terrace overlooking the golf course.
These changes to the Club at Mediterra join the ever-growing list of luxury amenities available in the luxury home community. Residents can revel in the themed neighborhood parks; eight miles of walking and jogging trails; a fitness complex with tennis and bocce courts, swimming pool and spa services; the 29,000-square-foot clubhouse offering formal and casual dining prepared by a staff of award-winning culinary experts; and the private 10,000-square-foot Beach Club on the Gulf of Mexico. Members can also spend the day outside with a well-rounded tennis program on the Har-Tru courts, as well as take advantage of the three new Pickleball courts and the ever-popular Bocce program. Golf lovers will always enjoy hitting the greens on the two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses since membership opportunities in Mediterra Naples FL are limited to just 225 members per 18 holes to ensure tee time availability for all members. Currently, the waiting time for a golf membership is one year when you purchase an existing home in Mediterra, but when you purchase a new construction home from London Bay Homes, we have a reservation just for you. Mediterra Naples has set outside a number of golf memberships for those residents that purchase new luxury homes in our luxury home community, so you can enjoy your new custom home and have instant access to your golf membership.
