For first-time visitors to Mediterra on Livingston Road, two miles north of Immokalee Road in North Naples, the community initially conveys a sense of completeness. Lushly landscaped streetscapes, water features, a 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. Mediterra continues to expand its amenity and new home choices to create a more thoughtful, relaxed approach to luxury living that reflects the preferences of homebuyers.
Fifty new home choices remain available at Mediterra, including completed furnished models by luxury homebuilder London Bay Homes, that feature open floor plans finished with contemporary and transitional interior designs. 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 Homes, 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.
Mediterra’s array of amenities offers the possibility of living a healthy, active lifestyle with opportunities to connect with other residents or to reconnect with oneself. The grand 25,000-square-foot Mediterranean-style clubhouse is a favored gathering place offering formal and informal dining, the Tavern outdoor lounge experience, and an outdoor open-air terrace with fire pits that overlooks the 18th hole of the community’s two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses. The clubhouse offers an engaging atmosphere where informal attire, including jeans, is always welcomed. Under the direction of Carmen Mauceri, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and winner of the American Culinary Federation Award of Excellence and Chef de Cuisine for a Presidential Dinner, The Club at Mediterra’s dining options offer a varied menu with unique concepts that include a “doctor’s orders” menu with a selection of healthy items.
A 24,000-square-foot clubhouse expansion is scheduled to begin this year and will expand the covered outdoor terrace and outdoor lounge areas that have become increasingly popular with Mediterra’s residents. In addition, 7,000 square feet of existing clubhouse space will be enhanced as part of the initiative that is being undertaken without a member assessment.
Mediterra showcases two golf courses designed by Tom Fazio. The courses weave their way along lakes, wetlands and nature preserves. Each course presents distinctive design characteristics and unique challenges for golfers of every skill level.
Mediterra’s Sports Club is adjacent to the clubhouse at the community’s piazza. A fitness center that was expanded by 3,000 square feet last year 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 percent, 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 on nearby Little Hickory Island was recently remodeled and now conveys “the magic of the beach” with colors reminiscent of the sand and water and South Beach casual elegance. As part of the renovation, the bar area took on a sportier feeling with large screen televisions. It also morphed into a wine bar overseen by Mediterra’s two sommeliers. An extensive wine list includes 20 wines for $20 per bottle. Carmen Mauceri oversees the Beach Club’s culinary team of executive chef Chris Fragolaand sous chef Shane Dorey, both certified chefs de cuisine. In addition to casual indoor and al fresco dining, the Beach Club offers an elevated swimming pool with a sundeck and cabana service for beach chairs and umbrellas that enhance members’ enjoyment of the Club’s beach and Gulf of Mexico.
