NAPLES, Fla. (Nov. 26, 2014) – London Bay Homes is building its second Delfina model home in Mediterra, Naples’ premier golf and beach club community. The four-bedroom single-family estate model is now under construction in Serata, a neighborhood of 36 lakefront homes. It replaces the original Delfina model, which sold within weeks of completion.
The new model will showcase two of the Delfina’s floor plan options: a game room and a secluded cabana guest room. The home will feature interior design by Melissa Allen of Romanza Interior Design and is expected to be completed in April 2015.
The home design offers formal living and dining rooms, a family room, study, four full baths and a powder room within 4,329 square feet of living space. It also features expansive outdoor living spaces, including a private patio off the master bedroom, a covered verandah and lanai with summer kitchen.
The open floor plan merges kitchen, breakfast nook and family room into a large gathering space that flows into the adjoining game room and through zero-corner sliding doors to the outdoor living room. A gallery separates the foyer and dining room from the living room, which offers sliding glass doors to the verandah.
The outdoor area will include a summer kitchen, custom swimming pool and spa; indoors, the expansive kitchen has a freestanding breakfast island, a center island and walk-in pantry.
The master suite offers a dedicated sitting area in the bedroom and his-and-her walk-in closets. The bathroom has a separate tub and shower, a private water closet and dual vanities – hers with a built-in dressing table.
The Delfina also features tray and double-tray ceilings in select rooms, art niches, and bay windows in the dining room and study.
One of London Bay Homes’ Reserve Collection floor plans at Mediterra, the Delfina will be built with a three-car garage and offer 5,943 total square feet, including an arched tower entry.
The first model, also featuring interior design by Romanza, sold within two months of completion. It was one of six furnished models that sold in early 2014 totaling more than $12 million.
The model is expected to be priced at just below $3 million.
A preferred builder in Serata and one of only two companies named America’s Best Builder in 2008 by Builder Magazine, London Bay Homes offers more than a dozen three- to four-bedroom floor plans as part of its Reserve Collection.
Homesites in Serata were designed to accommodate single-family estates ranging from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet of living space.
All London Bay Homes are built using the latest information, products and technology available in building science, including the BEP Blue Barrier moisture barrier system that protects against mold issues and structural damage from moisture intrusion.
Collier County’s eight-time Community of the Year Award winner and recently named the No. 1 retirement community in Florida by Best Retirement Destinations, Mediterra also received a 2013 Aurora Award for Best Residential Development in the Southeastern United States and ranks as one of the top private clubs in the world by BoardRoom magazine.
The 1,700-acre community offers an array of lifestyle amenities, including the member-owned Club at Mediterra with two world-class Fazio-designed courses and the private 10,000-square-foot Beach Club on the Gulf of Mexico, featuring an elevated swimming pool, casual dining with a full bar, and valet service for beach chairs, umbrellas, and beverage and food menus.
Mediterra’s onsite amenities include themed neighborhood parks; eight miles of walking and jogging trails; a fitness complex with tennis and bocce courts, a pool and spa services.
A recent renovation project at the 32,000-square-foot clubhouse updated the interior design of the main dining room, expanded the Club Lounge and kitchen, and introduced al fresco dining options, an exposition kitchen and chef’s table.
The club and Tavern on 18 offer formal and casual dining prepared by a staff of award-winning culinary experts. Additional renovations to the tavern added a fire pit to the popular lounge, which serves gourmet brick-oven pizzas, seasonal salads and open-air grilled entrées.
On the links, Mediterra is in the first year of a two-year $6.1 million project to replace the irrigation system, bunkers, cart paths and turf on its South Course.
Mediterra’s Golf Learning Center offers indoor and outdoor hitting stations, video equipment with launch monitor, a 2.5-acre short game practice complex with three greens, and a staff of certified PGA professionals. Membership opportunities at Mediterra are limited to just 225 members per 18 holes.
All of the community’s amenities are membership-owned.
Mediterra’s master plan includes more than 1,000 acres dedicated to open space with golf, parks and nature preserves.
Since December 2009, London Bay Homes and affiliates have managed all new home sales and marketing for the luxury community. Resale properties are listed through Mediterra Realty.
Available home designs in Mediterra include single-family estate homes and single-family maintenance-free villas priced from the $800,000s to more than $7 million.
