Residences at Mercato Taking Shape
The exclusive new-gated neighborhood, Residences at Mercato, is building 52 single-family homes and villas, adding to the pedestrian-friendly Mercato community in Naples. Two new models are open, and more will open in February. While neither a golf course nor country club community, Mercato is a unique gated community offering an easy urban lifestyle in a “Main Street” atmosphere walkable to abundant shops for fashionable clothing and fine goods, dining, and entertainment. Mercato is an ideal place for homebuyers who want the convenience of walking to a “Main Street” commercial area, and urban living in Naples while in close proximity to some of Florida’s finest beaches, the beautiful local Naples beaches.
Mercato blends convenience of neighborhood living with elegance, where residents enjoy retail and boutique shopping above condos of the Strada at Mercato. The Residences at Mercato offer homebuyers a backyard, private garage and more room. Residents of the Residences at Mercato are within walking distance or easy access to yoga, Whole Foods, LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, The Ritz Carlton, Artis-Naples, golf, airports, and hospitals. In the Mercato community, there is a café for morning coffee and pastries, beauty and spa treatments, and more conveniences.
The coastal contemporary-style of the Residences at Mercato gives homebuyers an option that they are looking for with the addition of this single-family neighborhood. The homes range in size from 3-5 bedrooms|3.5-5.5 bathrooms|2,697-6,200 square feet, with prices starting from $1.325 million to approximately $2.6 million. All homes have a pool, garages, and a patio surrounded by a privacy wall. The 33 single-family homes and 19 villas are 2-story, white exteriors, with grey roofs. The villas share a single-family feel since the garage is the side attached to the next villa. The residences have custom outdoor living spaces designed for a year-round outdoor entertaining lifestyle. The conveniences of condo maintenance are included, such as exterior power washing, pool and lawn maintenance. As of late December, nineteen homes have already sold with residents starting to move into this neighborhood next month. The Mercato community is located where Vanderbilt Beach Road meets Tamiami Trail North.
