Modeled after the European approach to living with residential over retail, The Strada, overlooking Strada Place- Mercato’s tree-lined main street- provides a walkable lifestyle in a pet-friendly community that appeals to families of all ages.Premier Sotheby’s International Realty is the exclusive sales and marketing representative for The Strada Residences at Mercato.
For a limited time, purchase of the remaining three bedroom residences includes a social membership at the nearby LaPlaya Beach & Golf Club, with private dining club, spa, fitness center and tiki bar, and several pools and cabanas. Social memberships also include specific golf privileges at the club’s golf resort, rated the top Florida Golf Course Resort by Conde Nast Traveler for two consecutive years (2010, 2011).
“With only three homes left, 2014 is truly the final season to secure a residence within The Strada and enjoy the ease of living that it offers, in addition to memberships at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Club,” said Judy Green, President and CEO of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, that represents the Lutgert development. “Two furnished models are available for viewing, and a third model will be ready at the end of April.”
The three remaining residences include three bedrooms and three baths ranging from 2,101 to 2,418 square feet.
Model 5502, priced at $1,199,000 has 2,101 square feet and is designed by LeeAnn Salvato of International Design Source. “I wanted this unit to be chic, yet inviting, since Mercato is such a vibrant and sophisticated area,” Salvato said. “I kept the color palette neutral, using gold and cream tones with touches of black and aqua accents, which creates a very soothing atmosphere. This clean, transitional design could easily fit any potential buyer’s style.”
Priced at $1,260,000, Model 5514 has 2,283 square feet and is designed by Charlie Hansen and Rebekah Etrett-Pilosky of Clive Daniel Home. This residence is highlighted by floating, tufted sofas upholstered in a light gray fabric and a fireplace accent painted in a charcoal color. The dining room includes a black, distressed antique dining table with cream tufted dining chairs. A custom queen headboard in the guest room is flanked by matching black metal side tables. The elegant master bedroom has a mirrored, espresso finished king-sized bed.
Model 7510, the final model in The Strada Residences at Mercato, is underway and scheduled for completion in the end of April. The residence is being designed by Clive Daniel Homes.
Strada residents Steve and Debbi Grimaldi purchased their home two years before completion and live there with their dog, Shadow. They chose a two bedroom plan and designed the second bedroom as an office. “We’ve been here for more than four years now, and I have to say, it’s all as promised and more,” Steve said. “We ride our bikes even more than we expected, and we still take a picnic dinner down to the beach at least once a month for sunset.”
Each residence at The Strada includes secured parking, private rooftop club with a clubhouse, fitness center, 52-foot heated pool with waterfall, spa, gas grills, fire pit and resort lounge seating.
The Strada at Mercato’s strong sales have been complemented by the ongoing success of Mercato’s retail division, with new retail tenants such as Pretty Women, Ladies Fashion and Accessories, owned by the husband and wife team of Michael and Beckie Lapidus. Other tenants scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2014 include Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Yoga Loft, 345 CaffèItaliano, Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern, and Cavo, a Rocky Patel partnership offering small plate dining in a lounge-style setting. These new retailers, along with perennial favorites Silverspot Cinemas, Whole Foods Market and Venture X, add to the cosmopolitan lifestyle where it is possible to live, work and play within walking distance of home, and yet minutes from the world-class leisure and cultural amenities of Naples.
