What Makes an Award-Winning Luxury Home Community

by Arelys Alexander

There are many things involved in finding a neighborhood/community that complements and speaks to your luxury living lifestyle and those same elements are what bring recognition to the community you choose.  Mediterra was designed to reflect the lush beauty of the Mediterranean region of Europe and created to bring together high quality custom homes and a plethora of luxury amenities to allow our residents the pleasure of a fulfilling Naples lifestyle.  Find out how you can Have It All by learning more about the many reasons Mediterra has been repeatedly recognized for excellence, from being named CBIA’s Community of the Year multiple times and receiving three Distinguished Emerald Club awards to being named No. 1 community in Florida for retirees by Best Retirement Destinations, receiving the 2013 Aurora Award for Best Residential/Mixed Use Land Development in the Southeast Region, and being named one of the 50 Best Golf Communities in America by Golf Digest, in addition to many other designations.

When you drive into Mediterra, you’re driving into a 1,700-acre master-planned community designed for no more than 950 homes. It won’t take long before you recognize that this slice of paradise is surrounded by the beauty of nature, as is evident in the 1,000 acres of preserves and lakes scattered throughout the property.  In this luxury home community, homeowners can walk or jog along the eight miles of trails and pathways or take a leisurely stroll through one of Mediterra’s three uniquely themed parks featuring sculpted formal gardens, natural wetlands, and a children’s play area.

Our homeowners’ association is self-sufficient and provides all residents with confidence and peace of mind that their community will maintain the fresh and vibrant look to which they are all accustomed.  Aside from the open areas of the community, well-maintained landscape and a common architectural and design theme for the luxury custom homes will uphold this high-quality standard.  This is why Mediterra only partners with knowledgeable and reputable Naples custom homebuilders, like London Bay Homes.  As Mediterra’s preferred builder, London Bay Homes, offers many luxury villa and estate floor plans that are all fully-customizable to reflect your needs and wants.  If a One-of-a-Kind home is what you have in mind, their in-house team of architectural and design experts will develop a home that will be as unique as you are.  You can view our Mediterra homes for sale to see the high-quality custom homes built by London Bay Homes and available in our luxury home community.

Find your ideal home in Mediterra, your luxury home community

As you continue your drive through our community, you’ll arrive at the 32,000 square foot Club at Mediterra that offers fine and casual dining.  Every member of our expert staff strives to recognize every resident by name and will also remember your favorite type of wine or cocktail.  Our food is prepared by a staff of award-winning culinary experts with a wide range of tastes to please every palate.  The Tavern at Mediterra offers casual dining with gourmet brick-oven pizzas, seasonal salads, and open-air grilled entrees by a popular lounge with a fire pit.  The Grille Room offers usual, fine, and healthy cuisine ranging from delicious soups and seasonal salads to exquisite gourmet sandwiches and first-class entrees.  The Club’s staff not only offers an exquisite dining experience, but also offers a full calendar of events with a regular schedule of unique activities to boost resident camaraderie.

After a delectable meal, you may want to head over to the Sports Club, where you can achieve a fit and active lifestyle with more than 30 classes per week, a variety of programs, state-of-the-art equipment, a friendly, knowledgeable, and professional staff, and nearly 300 participating members.  Stretch and tone with a relaxing yoga class, get your heart rate up with an invigorating Zumba class, or refine your skills during one of the Titleist Performance Institute Certified Golf specific programs. Members can also take part in Crossfit, Spinning, or even a Beginning Fitness class for those just starting out on their exercise regime.

The Sports Club also offers a top-rated tennis program that was recognized by the U.S. Tennis Association as being an Outstanding Private Facility.  It features seven Har-Tru tennis courts, the two-court Tennis Colosseum, and a rounded court. The courts are framed by flowered terraces with brick walls, ornamental landscaping, a pergola, ivy-covered walls, and lighting and grass-tiered stadium seating for up to 500 spectators.  Mediterra’s growing tennis program includes a host of educational and conditioning programs, from cardio tennis and daily clinics to league and club championship tournaments for advanced players.

Enjoy luxury amenities at the Club at Mediterra

Another popular program offered by the Sports Club is Bocce.  The Club at Mediterra’s Bocce program began in 2010 and has grown to more than 500 members, providing a hub which connects sports and golf members in a fun, social atmosphere.  Mediterra members of all skill levels take part in Bocce with the use of the luxury golf community’s beautiful, nationally recognized ‘Bocce Garden’ facility, set beside the Sports Club.  The Bocce Garden provides the perfect setting to enjoy a beautiful sunny day on the two ‘Har Tru’ sub-surface irrigated courts built by famed court designer Tony Ritzman, but is lit for night play until 10:00 pm.  The sport is so popular that Mediterra has Mixed, Men’s, and Women’s leagues for tournament play.

Of course, we can’t mention the many sports programs available in Mediterra without bringing up the two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses.  These courses were designed to blend in with the nature preserves, lakes, and wetlands surrounding them, making them challenging, rewarding, and breathtakingly beautiful.  Mediterra’s golf program ensures tee time availability with a cap of just 225 members per 18 holes.  Members can also enjoy the benefits of the Golf Learning Center, which offers the latest in technology and instruction.  Currently, the waiting time for a golf membership is one year when you purchase an existing home in Mediterra. However, Mediterra has reserved a number of golf memberships for prospective homeowners that purchase a new construction home, making it even easier to find you dream home and delve into the luxury living lifestyle at Mediterra.


The Mediterra Beach Club: Naples Resort Living at its Finest

All of these active programs have allowed Mediterra to be recognized as one of America’s Healthiest Clubs, ranking it among the top 10 percent of private clubs for its commitment to fitness and wellness for members and staff, but there is still more that Mediterra can offer.  Our luxury home community is the only one that can offer a golf course, clubhouse, luxury amenities,  luxury custom homes, AND a 10,000 square foot, two-story private Beach Club.  Residents need only take a short drive to the member-owned Mediterra Beach Club to take advantage of 200 feet of private shoreline on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and enjoy a beautiful day on the beach while being catered to by a friendly and professional staff.  The Beach Club has an elevated swimming pool with a sundeck and valet service for beach chairs, umbrellas, beverage and food menus, and any other luxury akin to beach resort living. You’ll never have to worry about forgetting any beach supplies at home because our Mediterra staff maintains their professionalism and commitment to you even outside of the Mediterra community gates.  Spend your day soaking up the sun, gathering shells along the shore, and finishing up with a dose of our casual, but signature cuisine served in our indoor or outdoor dining areas.

There’s a reason Mediterra is the Naples area’s most exclusive and sought-after Country Club addresses.  Download our brochure to learn more or contact us to delve into your new healthy, active, and engaged lifestyle.
