Best Florida Community of the Year - Miromar Lakes
After our trip to the French Riveria, we see where lady real estate developer Margaret Antonier caught her vision for Miromar Lakes built in north Naples, Florida. Our pictures of Nice, France look strikingly similar. Originally a deep rock quarry, the white coral bottom provides a perfect floor to reflect the aquamarine water in the 700 acre freshwater lake. Homes and condominiums with terra cotta roofs and white washed walls contrast beautifully against the lakes. One property owner describes the neighborhood as “a perfect heaven in Southwest Florida.”
Miromar Lakes is a one-of-a-kind master-planned community. A neighborhood where Europe meets South Beach modernism. Italian-style bridges and tall Royal Palm trees compliment the beauty of this gated Florida lake community spread across 1,300 acres. After you pass through the grandiose entrance gate, you’re greeted by white sandy beaches and beach cabanas draped in white fabric. The community’s 39,000 square foot beach clubhouse is one of the most luxurious we’ve seen with an infinity-edge pool overlooking the lake, chic interior decor and impressive lakeside Blue Water Beach Grill. The lakes are a freshwater playground dotted with sailboats, paddle boards and kayaks.
The architectural-style turns to Tuscany around the championship golf course where you’ll find a second clubhouse and dining. More amenities include a full service spa, fitness center and bocce ball courts. The community’s curb appeal and exclusivity has naturally attracted more affluent Europeans and Canadians seeking winter homes. The social calendar is filled with activities creating an opportunity for property owners to get to know one another.
Miromar Lakes has won over 130 design and building awards since 2001. Does Miromar Lakes need another award from us? Probably not, but we want to be sure our clients know about this fantastic Florida lake community with an international flavor. Homes begin in the $500k’s and can easily exceed $5 million.
We find Miromar Lakes special and deserving of our 2014 Bliss Award for Best Florida Community of the Year.
