MIROMAR LAKES IS #1!
April 9, 2010
The most respected and awarded community in Southwest Florida, Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, is one of life's finer things: A residential waterfront resort enclave of unparalleled luxury, graciousness and style; a tropical paradise with over 700 acres of contiguous aquamarine freshwater lakes and three miles of private white sugar-sand beaches; a "Signature" Championship golf course; an award-winning 39,000 square-foot ultra-chic Beach Club; and an award-winning Tuscan-style Golf Club, all in one luxurious setting. These riches are set amid Lake Como and Lake Maggiore with elegant neighborhoods offering a panoply of architectural choices in Grand Estate Homes, Estate Homes, Waterfront Residences with Boathouses, Luxury Villas, Luxury Coach Homes, Beachfront Cottages and Full Floor Residences in an environment that feels like the French or Italian Riviera.
Miromar Lakes was recently awarded the 2010 National Association of Home Builders Gold Award for Best Clubhouse in the United States for the Beach Club. The Miromar Lakes Golf Club was also awarded the 2010 National Association of Home Builders Silver Award for Best Clubhouse. Our residents explain it best! "Miromar Lakes is first-class from top to bottom...the Beach Clubhouse is outstanding and we can walk, drive or take our boat to it. One of the things our family truly enjoys is Miromar Lakes' exclusive Concierge Service. It's like being on a vacation at a resort even when we're home," say Peggi and Tim of Toronto, Canada. Another couple, Suzy and Ed Dissinger say "the amenities are about as good as I can possibly imagine and we have made nice down-to-earth friends at Miromar Lakes." Deb and Rick Eudaley use the Fitness Center every day, boat on the lake frequently and enjoy the couples' events at the Golf Club commenting: "We have made so many friends here. Everyone seems to be on the same page with the same agenda and everyone is very open and welcoming."
Selling steadily at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club are the top-end Grand Estate Homes, Estate Homes and Luxury Villas. With prices starting at over $1 million, these homes offer a distinctive lifestyle in a magnificent setting unequalled anywhere. Where else in Florida can avid boaters dock behind their homes, sail, ski, swim and fish in crystal-clear fresh waters or motor over to the Beach Clubhouse for dinner, meet friends for Happy Hour at the Blue Water Beach Grill, have a workout at the Fitness Center or enjoy a pampering Spa appointment!
Just ask the residents in one of these exclusive enclaves such as Castelli, a waterfront neighborhood of only eight Grand Estate homes on half-acre home sites, a gated enclave within Miromar Lakes providing enhanced privacy and yet is only a short walk to the Miromar Beach Club; or Murano, surrounded on three sides by water, providing abundant privacy for its 19 home sites as well as stunning views and the option for a private boat dock and quick lake access. Perhaps Portofino is preferable because of its inspired Mediterranean-style estate homes, each with a waterfront address, are set along cobblestone streets, amidst fountains and stonework, evoking an Old World ambiance. Whatever the choice of Miromar Lakes neighborhood, there is always a similar thread to the praise: "We could have chosen any location, but we bought here for the uniqueness and the freshness of the concept," says resident John Turco. "We have a pool and a boat dock in the backyard. It's the lifestyle - being able to water ski, then pull up to the Beach Club and go to the Grill, it makes it feel like we're living on a private Caribbean island."
"This place" is where you want to be, across the threshold between ordinary and extraordinary. Julie and Mike McNamara have this to say about their decision to live at Miromar Lakes "As serious boaters with a home on Lake Michigan for 32 years, Miromar Lakes seemed too good to be true. It was hard to believe that you could live on that much water in Florida without being on the ocean." Julie particularly enjoys the convenience of getting her hair done at the Spa's salon. From Janet and Ray Lachapelle's perspective "It's the people here that make a difference and Miromar makes it happen. The common denominator is that we all love the sun, we love life here and we love the diversity. We have visited a lot of places, but this is the best. We are spoiled with what we have here."
In addition to the national accolades, Miromar Lakes has earned coveted recognition with "Community of the Year" and "Best Clubhouse" Sand Dollar Awards from the Collier Builder Industry Association and Pinnacle Awards from the Lee County Building Industry Association in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. A multitude of awards is no surprise when the developer is a multi-faceted real estate development company in its 22nd year, holding a strong portfolio of residential and commercial properties in Southwest Florida. Privately owned, its prudent management practices keep the developer financially sound and the upkeep of every amenity promised - and there are plenty - is sterling.
Located at water's edge, the Beach Club offers intimate spaces and large gathering areas including the Beach Clubhouse with a main dining room, beachfront terrace, courtyard dining, an indoor/outdoor bar lounge with wine rooms, and a private beachside dining room with intimate seating around a fireplace with spectacular beach and lake views of the setting sun. The Clubhouse also features a living room, library/conference room, billiards and card room, 50-seat theater and business center. The Blue Water Beach Grill features contemporary light fare in an open-air setting with panoramic lake and beach views, a marina with boat docks, and food and beverage service to those relaxing in the billowing white cabanas that dot the beach. The choices for socializing, fun, fitness and pampering continue with the 10,000 square-foot zero-edge infinity pool; the European-style Spa and full service Salon; state-of-the-art Fitness Center with Pilates studio and aerobics room; Marine Services for boat rentals, fishing guidance and sunset cruises; the Tennis Club with seven lighted Har-Tru courts including a Center Court; beach volleyball area; basketball court and a children's playground.
For many residents the attraction is the majestic par-72 "Signature" championship Miromar Golf Course by master architect Arthur Hills, his only "Signature" championship course in Southwest Florida. It provides golfers with 7,400 yards of verdant splendor with TifEagle Bermuda greens, six sets of tees for every level of player, and a 15-acre practice facility with driving range, practice bunkers and a practice green. Equally compelling is the award-winning Tuscan-inspired Golf Clubhouse, combining the charm of Old-World luxury with an Italian Villa style and offering a full-service Pro Shop, pristine locker rooms, a card room, great room with towering hearth, dining room, lounge and wrap-around veranda.
