Searching for a new home requires not only finding the right floor plan, but also finding the right luxury home community that incorporates amenities fitting for your unique lifestyle. What luxury amenities do you seek in your future home?
According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), there are a few amenities that are the most popular among many age groups. Their study, Housing Preferences of the Baby Boomer Generation, gathered information from more than 4,300 prospective home buyers that fit into four categories: seniors (born before 1946), Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), Gen-Xers (born between 1965 to 1979), and Millennials (born after 1979). Their study revealed that, regardless of age, there were three amenities that were the most coveted: A suburban community, close proximity to a park area, and access to walking/jogging trails. Other amenities ranked by all four age groups were a swimming pool, a lake, and an exercise room.
A study done by real estate advising company, Robert Charles Lesser & Co., echoed some of the results in the NAHB study. According to Lesser & Co., green space and paved trail systems for walking, running, and biking were the No. 1 and No. 2 community features most desired by prospective home buyers. Other amenities that made the list include outdoor, resort-style pools, exercise rooms and equipment, and natural (unpaved) trail systems for hiking and walking.

Paved and Unpaved Trails
If you’d prefer to enjoy the sunshine and warm breezes of Florida while getting, or staying, in shape or you just like to take long walks to clear your head, Mediterra features eight miles of trails and pathways that lead around the community, including to the aforementioned parks where you will be able to take a breather and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

Residents at Mediterra are able to choose between two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses that are as beautiful as they are playable. Each course was designed to harmonize with its natural surroundings, creating a rolling picture of lush beauty and tranquility while you’re enjoying a day out on the greens.
