In less than 30 days, three model homes and two exclusive homesites within the intimate neighborhood of Portofino in Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club have sold, recording nearly $7 million in sales. London Bay Homes is the exclusive builder in Portofino, where only one select custom model and one homesite remain available in the intimate maintenance-free neighborhood of just 20 waterfront villa homesites.
“Buyers at Miromar Lakes have been inspired by our fully furnished model homes, and they’re opting for immediate move-in options that meet their lifestyle,” said Mark Wilson, CEO and president of London Bay Homes. “They walk into a model, experience the flow and ease of living of the floor plan, and envision the possibilities for their own home.”
Desiring a new home that offered a variety of enhancements, such as expanded outdoor spaces with waterfront views, a modern open floor plan, and enriched luxury amenities along with an active community lifestyle, the homebuyers of all the three recently sold homes were immediately drawn to the home’s architectural design and interior aesthetic.
“Miromar Lakes has long been recognized as one of the best communities in the area,” said Beth Bruner, sales executive with London Bay Homes. “With limited waterfront homesites available within the community, the recent buyers were drawn to the breathtaking water views every estate in Portofino offers along with access to the boat slips at the Marina, which is just a short walk from the neighborhood.”
One couple from Michigan was taken with the Cilento models’ expansive open floor plan, which could easily accommodate their school-age children, as well as provide a tropical outdoor oasis ideal for entertaining family and friends. The two-story estate also provides the owners with a master suite that directly opens onto the pool deck on one side and a tropical waterfront garden on the other. The entire home wraps around its outdoor living area, which features a covered lanai, outdoor kitchen, 1,200-square-foot pool deck, spa, sun shelf and fire pit.
Two other models nearby – both based on London Bay Homes’ Benita floor plan – captured homebuyers’ attention with an open floor plan that encourages a connection with its water and preserve views coupled with more than 3,000 square feet and four bedrooms.
The two additional homesite sales will serve as a blank canvas for the respective homebuyers to fulfill their dream designs with London Bay Homes.
“We’re already working with one of the homebuyers to create a custom design based on the Benita floor plan,” said Bruner. “She has incredible vision for design and is working with the award-winning team at Romanza Interior Design to create all the personalized spaces.”
With interest rates at record-low fees and quick move-in homes available that capture the natural splendor of Miromar Lakes’ outdoor lifestyle – which features a sparkling, freshwater lake, three miles of private white-sand beach, a European-style wellness spa and state-of-the-art fitness center, along with the only Arthur Hills “Signature” championship golf course in Southwest Florida – homebuyers were moved by the instant opportunities to enjoy living in their dream home today.
With 3,428 square feet under air, the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath Carina model is the final model remaining available for immediate purchase. The home features a wine bar galley connecting the formal dining room and gourmet kitchen, where an island curves to nestle against a leather-covered banquette and glass-topped table. Wide-planked hardwood flooring runs throughout the main living spaces, where three sets of pocket doors lead outdoors to the outdoor kitchen, dining area and alfresco conversation spaces. Stone pavers surround the custom hourglass-shaped pool that’s positioned for enjoying the home’s waterfront views. Priced at $2.4 million, the designer-furnished model boasts bold interiors with textured wallpaper above the extended wainscoting in the den and gold accents in the powder room.
