A Blue Zones Project, Naples consistently shows up in the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, based on residents’ views about health, financial security, along with sense of purpose and belonging. The healthy lifestyle, along with the area’s stunning beaches, amazing array of world-class restaurants, and cultural offerings has long been a magnet to America’s well-heeled. And now, the “Golf Capital of the World” has added another feather to its cap, “Home to the country’s premier Life Plan Community.”
Discovering The Fountain of Youth
“We serve some of the most educated, affluent people in the country. Our members have always looked for the cutting edge in business during their careers … and now they’re looking for the cutting edge when it comes to successful aging. Because of this, our newest community, Moorings Park Grande Lake, has been extremely popular with people moving from areas like Port Royal, Gulf Shore Boulevard, Bonita Springs, and Mediterra,” says successful aging expert and Moorings Park Communities Vice President, Tom Mann.
Mann will be sharing more about the new community at an informational luncheon on May 5th at Grande Lake’s stunning clubhouse restaurant.
The UN-Retirement Community
Boasting 223,053 square feet of resort-style amenities and residential living, the Grande Lake Clubhouse is unlike any other in North America. “I have had several residents and tours tell me that the Clubhouse feels like they have arrived at The Ritz. I take that as a compliment, but I always tell them that it’s more than just the architecture. It’s the services here, like the concierge physicians, that you won’t find anywhere that allow us to serve our members to an unmatched degree,” states Moorings Park Grande Lake’s Director of Sales, Gina Paris.
Step inside the Clubhouse and you’ll discover three casual and fine dining restaurants to please every palate: Zest Café and Bistro; Savor 26, an upscale, yet casual “go-to” with a playful menu; and BlueStone, the fine dining restaurant with an emphasis on prime meats, seafood, and overall cuisine.
“The restaurant views, the elegant décor, the special selections of china, glassware and silverware, the soft music, amazing culinary options prepared by our chef have all been received with great appreciation. We wanted to ‘wow’ our members and I feel that we have done so and exceeded,” says Kurili.
With its resort-style feel, the Clubhouse features a top-of-the-line TrackMan Golf Simulator, a fitness center equipped with modern pneumatic machines and personal trainers, and a theatre for movie nights, special performances and guest speakers.
Chat with friends in the lounge. Deal the next hand in the card room. Create a new masterpiece in the art studio. Or make every day a vacation; sunbathe poolside or read the latest best-seller in the shade of our cabanas.
“We are overwhelmed by the reaction to the tours we have been giving of our community. Everyone is blown away to see the size and the scope of our amenities and state that it’s like living in a resort,” Mrs. Paris adds.
Incomparable Sunset Views Paired with Curated Living
This 55-acre community fronting the gorgeous 28-acre lake is equipped with arguably some of the best views in Naples, having already created a buzz throughout Southwest Florida.
“What’s really special about our lake and golf course views lies in the fact that there are no homes built around the course, which is a rarity in Naples. The views not only from the large lanais, but from the kitchens, great rooms, and master bedrooms are absolutely spectacular. And every residence has incredible sunset views from their impressive lanais,” notes Mann.
Designed by Moorings Park Grande Lake’s partner, London Bay Homes, each residence boasts two private elevator entries for maximum privacy and comfort. Entrance fees for the residences at Moorings Park Grande Lake start at $1.73 million and are 70 percent refundable, a portion of which is tax-deductible. Mann continues, “London Bay has designed some of the finest homes in Southwest Florida, and now they have taken those same refined building and design skills and brought them to Grande Lake. They truly understand that our clients expect the very best in their homes.”
Life-enriching amenities are undoubtedly important, but so is having top-notch healthcare when you need it. Moorings Park Grande Lake residents have the comfort of knowing on-site concierge physicians and personalized healthcare are included with residency, as well as assisted living and memory care services should you ever require them.
The Center for Healthy Living with Outpatient Therapy services, as well as the Care 360 concierge physicians and personalized healthcare program, developed in partnership with NCH Healthcare System is also located within the Clubhouse.
“While our healthcare is incredible – truly the best - we want our members to be able to enjoy all that this unique community has to offer. Everything we do is designed to keep you healthy and active so that you never need the higher levels of care … but it’s better to plan ahead and have the services available should you ever need them,” said Mann.
