Mediterra has been busy freshening up and updating several aspects of its community to better serve its residents and continue being the award-winning community it is.
It all starts when you arrive the Mediterra Sales Center, which received a renovation a few years ago and has now been updated with fresh photography from our recent ad campaign and newer finished homes, complete with the floor plans of all of the new base plans for Cabreo and Lucarno in Mediterra.
Once you pass through the gates, you’ll see that our community has transitioned from old world Italian to an effortless chic and fresh European palette, embracing a modern Italian décor that is bright yet soothing. Mild shades and neutral hues are striking against architecture reminiscent of the coastal villages where Italy meets the Mediterranean sea. The Mediterra entrance sign, neighborhood signs, and iconic fountain all feature a cleaner European look, and the Club at Mediterra is in the middle of a two-phase expansion for the clubhouse. This first phase, which has been completed, provided an additional 24,000 square feet, while the second phase, which is almost complete, will provide a 7,000-square-foot renovation of existing space. All projects have been, and will continue to be, funded through the Club’s reserves and will be completed without a member assessment.
The Tavern Terrace, now popular among members for the outdoor dining and lounge area, has doubled in size (adding 1,400 square feet) to accommodate members and allows for seating near the golf course to enhance the golf and sunset views during your meal. The previous awning was replaced with a permanent roof featuring a clerestory element that allows natural sunlight to illuminate the space.
The Club at Mediterra also added new, more efficient wind/rain/bug/sun screens between the columns on the newly expanded perimeter, as well as ceiling fans, radiant heaters, and recessed can lights, to contribute to a more enjoyable, all-weather outdoor dining experience. At sunset, members bask in the glow of the sun as it dips below the horizon and then continue enjoying their meal with the warm glow from the coach lamps on the piers and the table fire bowls which are visible from all seats in the new expanded outdoor bar and fire pit area.
The new 1,850 square-foot outdoor covered bar terrace provides members with expansive views of the luxury home community’s two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses. The bar has a permanent roof, 70 seats, 23 bar stools, and over-bar mounted televisions to add to the ambience of this outdoor space. From the bar, residents have direct access to a new 680 square-foot outdoor covered grille terrace and the expanded outdoor tavern. They can also pass through new enlarged folding glass doors to enter an indoor bar lounge.
A new west-facing dedicated fire pit abuts the outdoor covered bar terrace and allows residents to enjoy stunning golf course views, as well as picturesque sunsets with rich greenery framing the sun’s colorful evening rays. The new Fire Pit Terrace was lowered from the current outdoor terrace to create a more intimate space and will accommodate 66 members with soft seating. Two water features are now prominent on either side of the centrally located fire pit.
The second phase of the expansion and renovation will see the Ballroom enlarged to accommodate approximately 50-60 more people and allow residents to enjoy additional dining and lifestyle events with the addition of a Sun Room ad Garden Room. These additional rooms can be used individually or they can be combined with the Ballroom for an expansive entertainment venue. The french doors on either side of the Clerestory Tower in the Ballroom will open up to the evening breeze in the open air terrace overlooking the golf course.
These changes and additions will allow Mediterra to continue catering to their residents and allow them to revel in their Naples lifestyle. In fact, The Club at Mediterra’s constant desire to evaluate and reevaluate the needs of their residents is one of the reasons why the Naples luxury community has been the recipient of its Sand Dollar Award for Community of the Year an unprecedented 11 times. The Club at Mediterra has also been designated a Top 50 Platinum and Distinguished Emerald Club three times, received 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.
