Ave Maria- A Big, Small Town
If you desire the feel of a small town but need the conveniences of a much larger setting, you’re sure to enjoy the home and lifestyle selections of Ave Maria. Much like a big, small town, Ave Maria presents a location where neighbors are often seen out enjoying a walk, going for a bike ride, playing in the park or meeting up at the local pub.
This award-winning community of single-family homes is actually a self-sustaining town complemented by local schools, restaurants, shops, parks and recreation. Ave Maria offers up everything from a weekend farmers’ market to free trolley tours and live music in its Town Center.
Other community amenities, meanwhile, tack on access to an 18-hole, Gordon Lewis-designed golf course, a residents-only water park and beach volleyball. While Ave Maria’s North Park has its own sports fields and a playground, South Park provides an enticing location for a game of bocce ball, a picnic lunch, or for visiting the dog park with your four-legged family member.
A quick trip in your golf cart leads to the local coffee shop, town center restaurants, or the chance to take part in one of Ave Maria’s many planned events. Eventually plans call for around 11,000 residences, along with well more than one-million square feet of space for offices, retailers and a business park.
Buyers in this master planned community have their choice of more than 40 different floor plans, with some more affordable options priced starting from the high $100,000s. There are currently around two-dozen model homes available for viewing in Ave Maria from such well-known homebuilders as CC Homes, Pulte and Del Webb.
Set between Naples and Ft Lauderdale, Ave Maria offers an impressive setting. While operating more like a small town, it’s also close enough to reach many other popular sites and attractions in the region of Southwest Florida.
