For first-time visitors to Mediterra on Livingston Road, just two miles north of Immokalee Road in North Naples, the community initially conveys a sense of completeness.
Lushly landscaped streetscapes, soothing water features, a majestic clubhouse that anchors the community’s amenity core, and luxurious residences set against golf course, preserve, and water views all speak to Mediterra’s award-winning history. Yet, even for all its unmistakable grandeur and industry acknowledgements, Mediterra is a place that is still becoming, a place that continues to expand its amenity and new home choices to create a more thoughtful, more relaxed approach to luxury living that reflects the preferences of homebuyers who crave livability, fun, and personal connections over the formality of their parents’ country club lifestyle.
A variety of new home choices are available at Mediterra, including a new collection of contemporary floor plan and elevation choices by London Bay Homes in the community’s Cabreo and Lucarno neighborhoods. The new open-concept floor plan choices in Cabreo and Lucarno reflect London Bay’s commitment to Private Label Living and are priced from the high-$800s with homesites starting in the mid-$200s. Spacious outdoor living areas can include optional outdoor kitchens, a fireplace, custom pools, and spas. Finish selections can be made at London Bay’s Selection Studio that presents the latest design trends in the building industry. 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, an award-winning homebuilder and developer in the Southwest Florida luxury home market for more than 25 years, manages all new home construction sales and marketing for Mediterra.
New open-concept floor plan choices ranging from 2,894 to 3,020 square feet under air are available in Cabreo, a neighborhood that presents maintenance-free single-family luxury villas. Homesites on the neighborhood’s single-loaded streetscape measure 65 to 70 feet by approximately 145 feet and offer lake and nature preserve views. One of London Bay’s newest villa neighborhoods, Cabreo is situated adjacent to Mediterra’s landscaped walking trails and within comfortable walking distance of the community’s extravagant gardens.
The new contemporary single-story home choices in Cabreo feature attractive covered entries, wide foyers, spacious great rooms, island kitchens, and dining areas, a study, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, master suites with large walk-in closets and elegant baths, and three-car garages. One of the plans, the Langston, offers a formal dining room in lieu of the study. Each of the plans can include an optional pool bath and two of them can be modified to include a fourth bedroom.
Double-loaded one-way cobblestone streets, sparkling lakes, glorious gardens, and majestic fountains combine to create the maintenance-free Lucarno neighborhood’s distinctive feeling. The neighborhood’s entry sequence includes the Parterre Garden, a French-inspired garden set on an island in the middle of a lake.
Several new one and two-story open-concept home choices in Lucarno range from 3,170 to 3,844 square feet under air. The floor plans feature spacious great rooms, island kitchens, and dining areas, a study or formal dining room, optional wet bars, three or four bedrooms, three or four baths, lofts, large walk-in closets and bathrooms in the master suites, and two or three-car garages.
In addition to the new floor plan choices in Cabreo and Lucarno, completed furnished models by London Bay, a model under construction that is scheduled for completion next fall, and single-family and estate home sites are also available. The completed furnished models feature spacious open floor plans finished with contemporary and transitional interior designs. The models present interiors by Romanza Interior Design and custom pools and outdoor living areas by London Bay that overlook Mediterra’s spectacular tableau.
The Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA) has named Mediterra recipient of its Sand Dollar Award for Community of the Year an unprecedented 11 times. The Club at Mediterra has been designated as 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. No other club in Collier County is included. 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.
Mediterra’s amenities offer the possibility of living a healthy, active lifestyle. 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 covered grille terrace, and a new west-facing dedicated fire pit terrace that provides unfettered views of one of the Mediterra’s two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses that weave their way along sparkling lakes, wetlands, and nature preserves. 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. Phase II will include enhancements to 7,000 square feet of existing clubhouse space. The entire initiative is being undertaken without a member assessment.
Mediterra’s Sports Club is situated adjacent to the clubhouse at the community’s piazza. A fitness center is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment and offers fitness classes ranging from aerobics to Zumba, wellness programs, personal trainers, aesthetic services, three spa rooms, and a swimming pool with a sunning deck and smoothie bar. The Club’s tennis program is acknowledged as one of the top programs in the country. Tennis facilities include a dedicated tennis pro shop and eight Har-Tru tennis courts, including a spectator court. Three pickleball courts with a Laykold masters’ gel surface that reduces the force of impact by 17% have oversized perimeter areas that allow each court to stand alone. More than 700 members enjoy competing on the Club’s bocce ball courts. Historically themed parks and water features that are unique to Mediterra are connected by nearly eight miles of walking and biking trails.
The 10,000 square-foot Mediterra Beach Club is located on nearby Little Hickory Island. No other luxury golf course community in Southwest Florida can match the beach experience available to Mediterra residents. The Beach Club conveys “the magic of the beach” with colors reminiscent of the sand and water and South Beach casual elegance. In addition to casual indoor and al fresco dining, the Beach Club offers an elevated swimming pool with an expansive sundeck and cabana service for beach chairs and umbrellas that enhance members’ enjoyment of the Club’s pristine beach and the Azure-toned waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
