Long-time Naples Florida residents, including several heavy hitters in the real estate biz, are pulling up their roots and replanting them in Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club.
Ultra-luxury builders such as Gulfshore Homes and Snell Homes, long fixtures at the high end of the Naples new home market, have upped the cachet for this Estero-area community, which is being developed by Miromar Development Corp. as a best-of example of resort-style living. Miromar Lake amenities include white (imported) sand beaches, 700 acres of turquoise freshwater lakes for boating and water skiing, a to-die-for spa, championship golf and a charming new golf clubhouse villa—outweigh the distance from the Gulf. Plus it’s close to the Miromar Outlets, the new Gulf Coast Town Center and the International Design Center. Miromar Lake homes include condos, coach homes, villas and grand estate homes priced from the $500,000s to more than $6 million. A far cry from the community’s introductory prices (from the $200,000s to around $1 million).
Though part of the larger Grey Oaks Golf & Country Club, there’s something wonderfully intimate about Estuary, which like its big sister across the street (Airport-Pulling Road) offers onsite golf, a clubhouse and beautiful estate and villa homes. Just a handful of neighborhoods are woven into the master plan, sharing Estuary’s 350 acres with lakes, a golf course and nature areas. Half of the villas in Marsh Wren, a neighborhood of 39 homes, have sold since fully furnished models were unveiled earlier this year. Designed by Stofft Cooney Architects and built by the Lutgert Companies, the villas hug fairways and lakes and are ruggedly Old World with their arches, wrought-iron accents and balconies. Four floor plans offer from three to four bedrooms and up to five bathrooms, and prices start at $1.59 million. There’s even a two-story design. What’s more, residents of the Estuary enjoy the full amenities of Grey Oaks and a location that’s close to everything.
London Bay Homes’ Abriana is located in Mediterra in Naples. The Abriana reflects the builder’s recent turn to California, with a rustic stucco exterior that’s accented by stone and wood. The space flow is great and different with rooms spilling into the next and special outdoor spaces, among them a covered summer kitchen, an outdoor living room with a vaulted beamed ceiling and fireplace surrounded by that same rustic wood, and a lakeside patio. The two-story Abriana has four bedrooms, five total baths, a wine cellar and nearly 4,300 square feet under air.
