Is a high association fee really worth the money? Decorated clubhouses, manicured golf greens, water aerobics in the community pool, equipped fitness centers, organized games, and perky activity managers are appealing amenities, but for some home buyers, those are extras they won’t really use. The choice becomes a single-family home, possibly not in a gated community and no guarantee that everyone on the block will care for their home’s exterior.
The quiet secluded Enclave of Distinction offers an alternative for buyers who want the exclusivity of a high-end community, without all the recreational options and the enormous membership or association fees that accompany them. Only 27 homesites, each with its own private pool are available now for a custom home designed by Naples architects Stofft-Cooney and built by one of Southwest Florida’s most reliable custom homebuilders, Distinctive Communities™.
Prices start at $1.6 million for 3,240 square-foot Haven model. Five unique three, four, or five-bedroom floor plans are fully customizable up to 5,200 square feet. Each one or two-story home will have a three-car garage, private pool and lake or private garden views. Homes feature soaring ceilings, luxury solid surface countertops and tile throughout with carpet in the bedrooms.
The Enclave of Distinction is being built around like minded people who love to enjoy life, connect with their neighbors, feel secure and appreciate low association fees. Currently assessed at only $322 per month, the fees cover maintenance of common landscape areas, the fountain, lake and irrigation, administrative fees, basic cable and internet provided by Hotwire® Communications, as well as upkeep of the decorative concrete pavers that line every street and driveway throughout the development. Upon completion, homeowners will determine how much is spent on community association fees to cover the shared expenses and if they want to man the gatehouse, made with special reinforced gating materials, making it much more secure than traditional lift arms. It will function as a live monitored entrance or a fully automated guardless entry 24 hours a day. Distinctive Communities™ has focused on the basic homeowner amenities like security instead of multiple recreation choices that can be found nearby in Naples or Bonita Springs.
Along with a magnificent fountain and lush park and at the entrance to the community where residents can pick up mail or gather for private events, The Enclave of Distinction features two lakes and preserve areas with open green space for walking, jogging or biking. Landscape buffering along the community perimeter reduces noise and adds to the environment in this well-placed development with easy access to I-75 and close proximity to the region’s premier shopping, dining, beaches and community parks. Each coastal contemporary home built at The Enclave of Distinction enjoys the privacy provided by the developer’s creative site planning where every home at The Enclave of Distinction has a view of surrounding preserve areas or lakes.
