GL Homes is bringing their 55+ Valencia brand to the Naples area with the announcement that they will soon begin presales for Valencia Bonita in Bonita Springs, FL. While it will be their eleventh Valencia community in Florida, it is their first in the southwest corner of the state.

Valencia Bonita will have 997 single-family and villa homes in 21 different designs across 347 acres. While features will vary based on design and price, each home will come with screened and covered patios as well as master suites with walk-in closets.

Tons of resident amenities are planned with a 45,000 square-foot clubhouse planned to be at the center of the community. The complex will include a grand ballroom, fitness center, cooking studio, arts and crafts studio, and an indoor/outdoor café.

Elsewhere, residents will be able to enjoy multiple outdoor pools, a bar, pickleball court, tennis courts, pro shop, and jogging/biking paths. A full-time lifestyle director will be on staff to coordinate special events and parties. Sales are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2017 and prices will start in the high $300,000 range.
