With the completion of Phase I of a two-phase 24,000 square-foot clubhouse expansion late last year, The Club at Mediterra’s European Chic-style clubhouse has quickly become a favored gathering place and the epicenter of social life within the community.
Phase I included the expansion of the popular cypress bar and tavern, the addition of an outdoor covered bar terrace, a new west-facing dedicated fire pit terrace, and a new covered grille terrace. Phase II will include enhancements to 7,000 square feet of existing clubhouse space. The entire initiative is being undertaken without a member assessment.
The awning structure over the cypress bar and tavern was replaced with a permanent roof structure featuring a clerestory element that allows the space below to be illuminated with natural daylight. The roof and clerestory element blend with the building’s architectural style, colors and finishes in a way that makes the new addition feel like part of the original building. At the same time, the covered outdoor tavern space was expanded by nearly 1,400 square feet. More efficient wind/rain/bug/sun screens between the columns on the newly expanded perimeter contribute to a more enjoyable outdoor dining experience. The space is furnished in various seating arrangements that provide numerous options for different size parties. The timber joist with tongue and groove ceiling structure with ceiling fans, radiant heaters, and recessed can lights add to the all-weather flexibility and cozy feeling of the outdoor dining venue.
The new 1,850 square-foot outdoor covered bar terrace provides unfettered views of one of the Mediterra’s two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses. The bar features a permanent roof, 70 seats, 23 bar stools, and over-bar mounted televisions. The outdoor covered bar offers direct access to a new 680 square-foot outdoor covered grille terrace and to the expanded outdoor tavern. New enlarged folding glass doors open to an indoor bar lounge.
The covered bar terrace is situated adjacent to a new west-facing fire pit terrace that capitalizes on golf course views during the day and sunset views that can be enjoyed in the late afternoon and early evening. With its proximity to the covered bar terrace and soft seating for more than 60 people, the fire pit terrace has become a popular place for cocktails and socializing before and after dinner. Two water features flank a large, centrally located fire pit. The fire pit’s floor level has been gently lowered from the previous outdoor terrace level to create a more intimate and jovial space.
The clubhouse offers an engaging atmosphere where informal attire, including jeans, is always welcomed. The clubhouse offers formal and informal dining. Whether dining indoors or outdoors, Mediterra’s clubhouse offers an outstanding dining experience. Under the direction of the General Manager/COO Carmen Mauceri, CCM, the clubhouse’s dining options offer a varied menu with unique concepts that include a “doctors’ orders” menu with a selection of healthy items.
The appeal of Mediterra’s living experience and new home choices has been repeatedly acknowledged. The Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA) has named Mediterra recipient of its Sand Dollar Award for Community of the Year Over $1 Million an unprecedented 11 times. In addition, The Club at Mediterra has been designated as both a Top 50 Platinum and Distinguished Emerald Club. The Emerald Club designation puts Mediterra in the top 5% of all country clubs in the world. The Club was named recipient of an Aurora Award for Best Residential Development within the Southeastern United States and is number 49 on the Top Tier Club list, a list voted by 6,000 club managers nationwide. Mediterra has also been named the “Best Place to Retire in Florida” and 10th best in the world since 2014 by Best Retirement Destinations. The Club at Mediterra was named one of the healthiest Club’s in the United States and was the first private residential Club to be honored with a “Green” certification. The Club is home to the world’s first golf course to be recognized as an Audubon Silver Sanctuary.
