Valencia Bonita has also recently celebrated the first of many homeowners to close and move in to their new home. Larry and Mary Anne purchased on grand opening day along with their good friends, who were the second to officially move in. Both couples moved together from another community in Naples and are very happy and excited to call Valencia Bonita home.
November has been a busy month at Valencia Bonita, with exciting new developments underway. Many of the community’s lakes have been irrigated and grading and sod on several of the lake banks is now complete. The north facing entry is also complete, with the exception of large oaks soon to be planted. Along the spine road, trees, shrubs, and most of the sod has been installed. The gatehouse reached completion and the first steps have been taken for the recreation site. Currently, 50 homes are already under construction.
Valencia Bonita’s model grand opening was a huge success and many hundred visitors came out both days to view the 13 spectacular designer-decorated models. Guests enjoyed a light lunch and ice cream, and had rave reviews about the exciting new home designs Valencia Bonita has to offer. Home sales are now officially taking place in the beautiful new sales office and the gatehouse is complete. Work continues on the magnificent entry and water features, with completion in sight.
The wait is almost over! Join us this weekend for the Model Grand Opening of thirteen gorgeous decorated models! In addition, work continues on the gatehouse, where the water feature is ready for pebble finish and pavers in the entry roadway and gate house lanes have been installed. Sodding and landscaping continues throughout the community and work on six of the community’s lakes are now complete.

The main entrance to the community is progressing rapidly. Water will cascade from the top of a slanted wall, under a split-faced stone, to produce a “chattering” and glistening effect. A second tier of water will pour from six decorative openings in the wall into the lower basin. The staffed gatehouse features a distinctive cupola, while decorative streetlights will accent the gently sloped drive. Once complete, the main entry to Valencia Bonita will exude a feeling of timeless transitional elegance. Lush tropical landscaping will convey a stately Florida lifestyle.
