Naples, FL (PRWEB) October 20, 2016
Mediterra was named Community of the Year for an unprecedented 10th time during the sold-out Sand Dollar Awards gala presented by the Collier Building Industry Association’s Sales & Marketing Council. Two single-family model homes in the Naples community also received five top awards for home, interior and pool design.
The annual awards recognize excellence in building, development, landscape, interior design, remodeling, commercial design, advertising, marketing and sales.
Mediterra once again captured the Community of the Year award for communities with homes priced over $1 million. The judging panel, comprised of industry experts, evaluated the 1,700-acre community’s amenities and its intimate neighborhoods tucked into nature preserves, parks, lakes and a formal European garden.
“Mediterra is a special community,” said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes, which manages all new home sales and marketing in Mediterra. “It is Naples’ premier golf and beach club community with an incredible ambience of rolling hills, beautiful landscaping and tree-shaded outdoor spaces, balanced by hundreds of acres of untouched nature preserves. Its lifestyle is beyond compare.”
The community also offers two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses with membership limited to just 450 members – 225 members per 18 holes. London Bay Homes is offering an exclusive opportunity for new homebuyers to purchase a golf membership at Mediterra without any need for time spent on what otherwise is approximately a one-year waiting list.
London Bay Homes, a builder of luxury custom homes, along with Romanza Interior Design and Acquatico Pools earned five Sand Dollar Awards for two luxury single-family model homes in Mediterra. The Belita received Product Design and Interior Design of the Year honors in the $2,500,001 to $2.75 million category, while the Isabella Two-Story received product and interior design awards for homes priced from $3,000,001 to $3.25 million, as well as Best Pool Design over $50,000.
The Belita, a single-family villa in the Lucarno village, captures the sought-after Florida lifestyle with an open floor plan and alfresco living spaces featuring a zero-edge pool and an outdoor kitchen. Purchased prior to completion, the three-bedroom model offers a study, formal dining room and a second story with a loft, bedrooms and a wet bar. Romanza infused its 3,738 square feet of living area with earth and sand tones – varying from cream and soft beige to mocha – and a subdued design palette that uses texture, dark metallics, subtle patterns and random dashes of amber, ginger and muted shades of deep red, green, ocher and orange.
London Bay Homes expanded a popular floor plan to create the Isabella Two-Story, offering 4,285 square feet of living space, a study with a view, and a second floor featuring a fourth bedroom, balcony and bonus room with wet bar. Romanza’s elegant transitional interior design is punctuated by bold strokes of black and teal, textural and shimmering finishes, and distressed and rich amarone wood tones. Designer finishes include Roman vein-cut travertine flooring, faux-finished beamed and painted tongue-and-grove ceilings, custom built-in cabinetry and Venetian plaster walls.
The Isabella Two-Story also emphasizes an open floor plan and connection with its large alfresco area focused on the award-winning pool design by London Bay Homes’ Acquatico pool division. Streams of water emerge unexpectedly from the pool deck and are illuminated in seaglass shades of blue, green and lavender. Swim-up shelves on each side of the spa double as in-pool benches and provide easy access to the raised spa, which floats within the pool.
