Forecast for new construction home sales in 2016 were optimistic, with REALTOR.com® predicting that total home sales would reach the highest levels since 2006. Of course, this is most likely due to the decreasing inventory of resale homes and the increasing availability of new home communities, as well as the fact that twice as many people prefer new homes over resale properties, according to Trulia. Combine that with renewed confidence in the housing market and prospective homeowners will undoubtedly be overwhelmed with the options and competition in their new home buying venture. Before you give up on finding your dream home, allow us to narrow down your options by introducing you to Mediterra.
Mediterra is an exclusive new home community in Naples FL with 1,700 acres of nature preserves, lakes, parks, open space, and no more than 950 luxury homes upon completion.

The Clubhouse employs a full professional staff that keeps everyone entertained with a regular schedule of unique activities. If the luxury amenities don’t instantly draw you in, the beauty and luxury of our villas and single-family built by America’s Best Builder, London Bay Homes, will.

The Angelica is one of villa home plans in London Bay Homes’ newest villa neighborhood of Cabreo. The maintenance-free villa home features 2,810 square feet under air with three bedrooms, plus a den, and three bathrooms. Offered as a semi-furnished home, the Angelica features designer finishes throughout with designer furnishings added to the main living areas by Romanza Interior Design. This design was provided to allow the future homeowner to design the more personal living space using their individual style. The Great Room, Dining Room, and Master Bedroom open up to the outdoor living area with a pool overlooking a glistening lake. The outdoor living space, covered entry, and two-car garage bring the Angelica model to 4,087 total square feet. The Angelica is priced at $1,330,000.
The Bettina is our lakefront villa home in the Cabreo neighborhood and is located just a short walk from Mediterra’s formal Parterre Gardens with lush flora, multiple water features, relaxation benches, and walking paths. It features four bedrooms and four bathrooms in its 3,110 square feet of air-conditioned living space. The fully-furnished villa model emphasizes openness, combining the great room with the adjoining dining room, kitchen and café. Sliding glass doors in the great room and café lead to the covered outdoor living area that includes ample sitting and dining areas, in addition to a summer kitchen. The Bettina is priced at $1,679,035.
The Catalina is an estate model home and represents one of the few remaining opportunities in the maintenance-free villa and estate home neighborhood of Cortile. The home itself features 5,288 square feet under air with an inviting open floor plan blending the great room, kitchen, and café. From the café, large bonus room, and master bedroom, homeowners and guests can access the 950 square foot outdoor living area with resort-inspired linear pool with a sun shelf, a raised spa, a fountain near a raised fire pit, a summer kitchen, and living and dining room areas. The second floor includes additional spaces for relaxation and entertaining with a loft, wet bar, and third guest suite. The loft will feature built-in cabinetry and sliding glass doors that lead out to a special design feature of the home called the “sunset overlook.” This balcony just outside of the loft was designed to create a perfect place to gaze at the stars and enjoy an evening by the fireplace.
The Cordoba is an Italian-inspired single family home in the Cortile Estates at Mediterra. The exterior of the home features a stone façade reminiscent of the Italian countryside and the floor plan was created to complement that design. The three bedroom, five bath home features stone walls and wood beams throughout its more than 5,300 A/C square feet and a relaxing courtyard located at the center of the home. Of course, no Italian-influenced home can be complete without a formal dining room with a wine cellar, but the design was advanced further with a second catering kitchen, a private study, and a second-floor game room. Adding to the architectural design is the interior styling of the award-winning Romanza Interior Design.
As a secondary outdoor space, the Cordoba features an outdoor living area with a kitchen, sparkling pool and spa, and a pool bath. These exterior design choices combined with the three-car garage bring the Cordoba to a total of 9,516 square feet. The Cordoba is priced at $3,300,000.
London Bay Homes’ newest completed single-family estate model in Mediterra is a two-story version of one of their most popular floor plans: the Isabella II. Aptly named the Isabella Two-Story, this luxury custom home received the comfortable design and expansive outdoor living space that made the Isabella II popular in the first place, but expanded to 4,285 square feet under air and a total of 6,353 square feet. With the new dimensions, the Isabella Two Story feature a fourth bedroom, a fifth bathroom, a serene sitting area with a wet bar and refrigerator, and a covered balcony on the second floor, as well as more square footage on the first floor. The four bedroom, five bathroom Isabella Two-Story is priced at $3,125,625.
The Sardinia is Mediterra’s newest estate home in Cortile that will offer a beautiful outdoor setting on one of the last home sites available in this luxury maintenance-free neighborhood. It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in Cortile to ensure privacy and a sprawling outdoor space. The home will have 5,939 square feet under air upon completion with four bedrooms, four full baths, a powder bath, and a pool bath, as well as a great room, gourmet kitchen, wine room, cafe, and dining room. Large pocket sliding glass doors in the Great Room lead out to the custom pool and spa with a fire bowl, while a sun shelf will connect the two water features. The cafe opens up to the model’s largest covered alfresco space, a more than 950-square-foot area offering separate dining and living spaces connected by a summer kitchen and freestanding bar with seating and a cozy outdoor fireplace. This ideal alfresco space will add to the beauty and tranquility of the lake and nature preserve views of the Sardinia estate home.
