It’s no secret that in the last few years, Florida’s real estate market has become more competitive than ever before, with many experts predicting this trend isn’t likely to change for the remainder of the year. The scarcity of homes for sale compared to the number of motivated buyers has driven prices to an all-time high – and the center of this boom can be found in the city of Naples. 

In a June 2022 article on, the publication writes, “Real estate gurus are predicting that the Florida housing market will stay hot throughout 2022.” The same article cites that the bottom line is if you’re a Florida seller, you’ll make a pretty nice profit. Many local boomers and seniors find themselves in the position to make a profit since most have owned their houses for five or more years. But where do you go if you do sell? 

The seller’s market has some potential home sellers considering luxury Life Plan communities like Moorings Park Grande Lake as an appealing and financially prudent next step. Offering brilliantly designed residences with spectacular lake and golf course views, Moorings Park Grande Lake has quickly become Naples’ newest – and hottest selling – community designed for baby boomers.

According to Moorings Park Communities’ Vice President and successful aging expert Tom Mann, the hidden value of moving to a resort-style community like Grande Lake is something of a well-kept secret. 

“Living in one of our communities frees residents of many of the expenses associated with traditional home ownership,” Mann says. “At Moorings Park Grande Lake, you have no real estate taxes, no condo assessments, no yard maintenance, or costly home repairs. Plus, you have access to a concierge doctor, as well as assisted living and memory care, should you ever need it. And because the IRS views expenses associated with living in a Life Plan Community as pre-paid health benefits, there are some healthy tax deductions as well!”

The 55-acre luxury community offers a variety of floorplans ranging from 2,776 to 7,863 square feet. Each residence is impeccably designed and features private elevators, beautifully designed kitchens, and incredible views of the 28-acre Grande Lake and the Naples Grande Golf Course. In addition, these residences come with the most spacious lanais you will find in the area, providing the perfect place to entertain family and friends while enjoying magnificent sunset views.

Custom Design for Personalized Living

When building Grande Lake, Moorings Park Communities partnered with London Bay Homes, the renowned local builder known for creating custom homes from Port Royal to Bonita Springs. With the help of the London Bay Design Studio, residents enjoy a huge selection of stylish flooring, countertops, lighting options and more – all available to make your residence feel like home.

Entrance fees for Moorings Park Grande Lake start at $1.73 million and are 70 percent refundable, a portion of which is tax-deductible.

A Clubhouse Like No Other

One of the features that sets Grande Lake apart from other communities is its spectacular, newly opened Clubhouse. With sweeping views of the pristine lake and a scope that goes above and beyond what you’ll find in any other community in the country, the Clubhouse offers a host of resort-style amenities, social activities, and luxury residential living.

It is also home to three extraordinary restaurants, each offering a unique take on fresh, 5-star dining. With the creative menus at Zest Café and Bistro, Savor 26, and Bluestone, residents can always find the perfect culinary treat to suit their taste.

 “No other Life Plan Community has a Clubhouse that compares to ours,” says Grande Lake Sales Director Gina Paris. “The beautiful décor, the attention to detail, and the sheer size of the building sets the tone for the incredible lifestyle offered at Grande Lake.”

Unparalleled Wellness and Healthcare Programs

Moorings Park Grande Lake has also earned a reputation for providing the unmatched level of integrated healthcare and wellness that boomers and seniors are looking for. The Center for Healthy Living®, also located in the Clubhouse features concierge physicians and personalized healthcare that are included with your residency. Assisted living and memory care services are also included, should you ever need them.

With certified personal trainers to guide you every step of the way, the Fitness Center is well-equipped with modern exercise machines.  The TrackMan Golf Simulator provides a great opportunity to work on your golf swing, and a host of fitness classes, yoga, personal training, and water aerobics in the resort-style pool are also available. The Clubhouse’s comfortable theatre is ideal for enjoying movies, guest speakers and a variety of special performances hosted by the Grande Lake community.

You’ll Feel at Home the Day You Arrive

With the overwhelming popularity of the community, Executive Director of Moorings Park Grande Lake Katy Kurili is thrilled that the newest offering, Palm View, is already almost sold out.

“It has been amazing to see the community grow, and the residents couldn’t be any happier,” Kurili says. “When new residents move in, it’s customary for their neighbors to open up their own homes and offer a cocktail or a glass of wine, to welcome them for dinner in one of our beautiful restaurants or invite them to join in for a round of golf.”

You’re Invited to Grande Lake’s Informative Webinar

Join Tom Mann as he hosts an informative webinar on Friday, August 12th at 10:30 am.

“During the webinar, I’ll provide you with an in-depth look at what this beautiful community has to offer, including information about prices and fees. You’ll enjoy a video tour of the Clubhouse, along with a tour of our Brook model, which is a stunning three-bedroom residence. I’ll also talk about how the timing of this decision works. It’s eye-opening for people to discover; you just can’t walk into Moorings Park Grande Lake and ask for a residence,” Mann notes.

“We’re currently reserving for new homes that are two years out from completion … so this takes a little planning on your part. But that planning is worth it, if you are interested in enjoying a country-club lifestyle, with the assurance of unmatched health and wellness. This webinar is the perfect pressure-free to start your research from the comfort of your home.”
