NAPLES, Fla. (Oct. 17, 2016) – London Bay Homes’ luxury single-family villa model at Mediterra – the three-bedroom Clara in the Cabreo neighborhood – sold in only 43 days.
According to the August market report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors, the Clara model sold three times as fast as the Naples average of 135 days on the market for homes in the same price range.
“This sale demonstrates the continuing strong demand for model homes in Mediterra,” said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes. “All our model homes in the community, across a variety of neighborhoods, have sold during the past three seasons. We have accelerated our model program at Mediterra to meet customer demand and now have 15 new model homes currently under construction or in design.”
One of those models is an encore of the Clara, featuring a floor plan that instantly appealed to Barb Anderson, who purchased the completed model this summer.
“I wasn’t looking for a furnished home but fell in love with the beautiful fixtures and furnishings by Romanza Interior Design,” Anderson said. “The house has an air of warmth and elegance throughout. I really can’t describe how happy I am.”
Featuring 3,369 square feet of living space and a popular open great room floor plan, Romanza Interior Design’s Michael Scott created a modern-classic aesthetic in the former model home, blending traditional and mid-century modern furnishings with coastal and contemporary artwork and accents.
The Clara offers formal living and dining rooms, a study, great room and pantry. Emphasizing an indoor-outdoor connection, the Clara’s main formal and casual gathering areas flow inside and out to a large alfresco living area with an outdoor kitchen, pool and spa. The home also has a three-car garage.
Anderson has built many new homes and was immediately taken with the Clara from the moment she walked in, stirring a feeling she said she will never forget.
“The floor plan is incredibly sophisticated, well organized and makes the home extremely livable,” she said. “I immediately felt right at home.”
Anderson’s new home features numerous luxury designer finishes and treatments, including wood flooring in the study, glazed porcelain tile in the main gathering areas, quartz countertops, and specialty wall and ceiling details.
“It’s a great house for entertaining,” said Scott, who complemented various shades of jade with accents of cream, blush, gray, beige and espresso.
The new Clara model is scheduled for completion in January 2017 and is one of three luxury floor plans offered in Cabreo, an intimate neighborhood of 39 maintenance-free luxury villa homes built exclusively by London Bay Homes overlooking lakes and nature preserves in Mediterra.
