The Marbella 1208B
UPDATE: June 18, 2013 – Marbella wins the 2013 plan of the year award; following in last years plan of the year, the Bermuda’s footsteps!
It all started with: “Our new Bermuda model opened on May 13, 2011 and it immediately turned a lot of heads here in Lakewood Ranch!”
That was the headline two years ago and now many Bermuda’s and the ARH model of the year award for 2012 later, the next generation of this bold new design named the Marbella is open in the Vineyards section of the Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch.
We started with the Bermuda in mind, but the Marbella soon took on a life of it’s own and now open since October 26, 2012 it is selling just as well. This home was designed specifically for the Lake Club target buyer and the attention to detail and yes the “Everything Included” pricing continues to drive our competitors crazy.
The lesson we continue to see repeated over and over is that if you listen to your customers and bring them what they want the rest is easy. The Marbella took the best parts of the Bermuda design and tweaked it where needed and then brought in a whole new level of excitement with our Club Room. We wrapped the Club Room around our Cabana, added two sets of 90 degree corner doors and strategically positioned the outdoor fireplace so that there is no true line between the indoors and outdoors. This is truly what people who talk about the Florida lifestyle are referring to and everyone who visits the Marbella go away talking about it.
Of course this is just one small part of this great plan. We took the Master Bedroom and made it more grand. In the Marbella we are for the first time showing our Platinum standards, something we did not have the ability to show back in the Bermuda days. As with the Bermuda, all of the construction features are standard in the Marbella and you can use the finish level standards Signature or the Platinum shown to move the price point.
Other features include an even larger hidden Pantry, a greatly improved Arrival Center, a larger Utility Room and we added the full third bath to make each bedroom a suite. Oh yeah, then there is the Kitchen! The beautiful island, this time showing the Platinum standards Wolf 48″ Range and the Sub Zero 42″ refrigerator and a wall Sub Zero wine cooler or the matching GE Monogram appliances in our Signature Standards.
We have sold the Marbella already, but will have it to show through August 2014, so schedule your visit now. Oh yeah, we are working on it’s replacement the Ravenna already too!
