Calling all you bargain buyers, I know you’re out there and it’s time to act quickly if you want a gorgeous home in the Estate section of Imperial Golf Estates known as Castlewood. If you have a bit of time to wait to close on the transaction and are more concerned with a great price for a higher future ROI rather than a quick closing, this is the home for you. It is currently listed at $499,000 as a bank approved number and is 23% LESS than a recent summer closing in the same community but is 225 s.f. larger. The last sale in Castlewood in August was $645,000 for the smaller home. Check out the photos of this property and the specifics at http://www.sunshinemls.com/search/emailToResults.asp?eid=5823503 . Imperial is a community of low density with lot sizes generally averaging about 115 ft for frontage with a few homes set on reduced lots averaging about 85 ft for frontage and many lots having depths of 100 ft+ providing ample privacy for each and every homeowner. Now, here’s the icing for the cake: Imperial residents have benefitted from years of planning by their board of directors with the fruition of a second entrance that allows residents to be on Livingston Rd through an access road currently saving them travel time to all points in Naples, Bonita Springs and Ft Myers. This is a huge time saving endeavor and the residents are so excited that, not only does it save them travel time but it also provides quicker emergency services and an alternative hurricane route. One last point, and this is significant: Imperial Golf Estates is the only community in North Naples on US 41 that can provide homeowners with these great benefits, location and value. As our inventory is depleting and not being replenished, the best bargains are becoming less and less. Especially for a community like Imperial Golf Estates that has so many quality benefits. Thinking of purchasing real estate in Naples? Be sure to put a significant amount of time into exploring the sweetest community in Southwest Florida: Imperial Golf Estates. Located in North Naples this is a “must see” part of your real estate tour. Why? Location, Location, Location, oh, and Value. With a combination of product from affordable condominiums and villas to spacious estate homes, this little darling of a community is perfectly situated on the east side of US 41. Where do I begin to tell all of you that haven’t been to Naples or those that are here but have forgotten about it because it’s tucked away so neatly into its expansive quadrant of land, about life in Imperial? Well, let’s start with the location. Flanked by neighbors such as Collier’s Reserve and LaPlaya Golf Course, you are a short 7-8 min drive to the beach at Delnoir-Wiggins State Park to the south and about 10-12 minutes to the beach at the county park of Barefoot Beach. Got golf? You bet, 36 holes for your playing pleasure. Two pristine conditioned courses with an incredible clubhouse as the signature centerpiece to the community and its membership-based play with a list of impressive reciprocals during off-season. Need to sweat but want to have fun while doing it? No problem, again, within this community is the Imperial Tennis & Racquet Club as a separate membership. You say you want the arts & culture events? Drive about 10 min. south to the Naples Philharmonic and the Naples Museum of Art. Boutique and designer shopping? Right behind the Phil is Waterside, a chic shopping area developed on a water feature with dancing waterfalls highlighted with storefronts such as Cartier, Saks, Nordstroms and Ferragamo. Have a desire for in-town entertainment such as outdoor concerts and plush theatre seating featuring restaurants with alfresco dining, check out the Mercato, again, about 7-8 min from Imperial. Need a quick exit to the airport, we got it, only a 15 minute drive to Interstate 75.
