Four beautifully designed and furnished model residences are being featured during London Bay Homes’ Spring 2019 Model Home Showcase that continues today at Mediterra, a 1,697-acre gated community located two-miles north of Immokalee Road on Livingston Road in North Naples.
The models will be open for viewing and purchase today from noon to 5:00 p.m. The Model Home Showcase will continue over the next three weekends with the models open for viewing from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. Homesites showcasing water and preserve views are also available. Purchasers of homes by London Bay are eligible to secure a full golf membership immediately rather than being placed on the membership waiting list as a Limited Golf Member. London Bay manages all new home construction sales and marketing for Mediterra.
London Bay’s models feature Coastal-influenced architectural styles and open-concept interiors designed by Romanza Interior Design. Custom pools and outdoor living areas by London Bay overlook Mediterra’s lakes and preserves. The models are situated in new neighborhoods introduced by London Bay that present luxurious single-family villa and estate homes. Two furnished models were sold during London Bay’s 2019 Winter Model Home Showcase event.
The single-story Clara model is being showcased in London Bay’s Cabreo neighborhood that presents maintenance-free single-family luxury villas ranging from 2,800 to 3,200 square feet under air and priced from $1 million. Priced at $1,895,000 with furnishings, the 3,369 square feet under air, three-bedroom plus den, three-and-one-half bath Clara offers the largest floor plan in Cabreo and emphasizes an indoor-outdoor connection with sliding glass doors in the kitchen, family room, and living room that open to an alfresco area with an outdoor kitchen, a custom pool with a sun shelf and bench, and a raised spa with a spillover. A poolside fire pit provides an intimate gathering place. The kitchen features designer cabinetry and appliances, as well an oversized island with breakfast bar-style seating at a sweeping curved countertop. An office area connects the kitchen and formal dining room and includes a pantry closet. The model’s master suite also opens to the outdoor living area and offers a large walk-in closet. The master bath features a custom vanity with double sinks, a private water closet, and separate glass-enclosed shower and tub.
The new Bianca model will be on display in Caminetto, the newest of Mediterra’s Lake District neighborhoods developed by London Bay. An enclave of 15 luxurious single-family villa homes from the high $1-millions to the low $3-millions, Caminetto celebrates views of glistening fountained lakes and nature preserves along with short walks to the Parterre Garden. Priced at $2,774,000 fully-furnished, the 3,735 square feet under air Bianca residence features a massive great room that opens to a covered terrace, a dining area, an island kitchen with wine storage, a bonus room with a linear fireplace and pocketing sliders that open to the outdoors, a private study, three bedrooms, four baths, and an outdoor living area with an outdoor kitchen and dining area and a custom pool with a sun shelf and spa. The master suite includes dual walk-in closets and a bath with dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. The plan also includes a two-car garage and a one-car garage.
The Lucarno neighborhood’s maintenance-free lakeside villa homes offer five floor plans ranging from 2,900 square feet to over 4,000 square feet. At build-out, Lucarno will include 71 lakeside villas priced from $1.5 million. The previously sold 4,402-square-foot, two-story Capriano model in Lucarno will be open for viewing during the Model Showcase. The Capriano floor plan features a great room with a linear fireplace, wine bar, and a library opening to an outdoor living and kitchen area. The home offers views of a lake and Mediterra’s Parterre Garden. An open staircase ends at a wet bar that serves a second-floor lounge, a guest suite with a balcony, and a sun deck. Light-toned natural hickory flooring brings an appealing look to the Capriano’s open-concept living area and plays against the home’s neutral-toned backgrounds.
Oriented to take full advantage of sparkling lake views, the two-story, four-bedroom Isabella model in the Serata neighborhood offers 4,285 square feet under air. The model’s open-concept design includes an adjoining great room, gourmet kitchen, and café. The floor plan also features a formal dining room, a den, and a master suite that presents a luxurious bathroom with dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub, and a glass enclosed shower. A loft includes a wet bar and a covered balcony overlooking an outdoor living area with a custom pool, spa, and an outdoor kitchen. The Isabella model is priced at $2,745,000 fully-furnished.
Model Home Showcase guests are encouraged to visit the Mediterra Sales Center to learn about new floor plan choices London Bay will be introducing in the Cabreo and Lucarno neighborhoods. A Sales Executive will also provide an overview of Mediterra’s award-winning lifestyle and its array of world-class amenities. Mediterra’s European Chic-style clubhouse is a favored gathering place. Phase I of a two-phase 24,000 square-foot clubhouse expansion has been completed. In addition, 7,000 square feet of existing clubhouse space will be enhanced as part of the initiative that is being undertaken without a member assessment. As part of Phase I, the awning structure over the popular 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. New, 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 will add to the all-weather flexibility of the outdoor dining venue.
A new 1,850 square-foot outdoor covered bar terrace was created and provides unfettered views of one of the community’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 new outdoor covered bar terrace is situated adjacent to a new west-facing dedicated fire pit terrace that capitalizes on golf course views during the day and colorful sunset views that can be enjoyed in the late afternoon and early evening. With its proximity to the new outdoor covered bar terrace and soft seating for more than 60 people, the fire pit terrace has become a popular gathering space 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.
