Maple Ridge at Ave Maria – South Florida’s New Residential Community

In South Florida just east of Naples is a stunning new residential community—Maple Ridge at Ave Maria. As one of the most sought after communities in South Florida, this gem of a community can offer you an abundance of amenities, two choices of home collections, and an ideal location. All this value starting from the $200,000s, it’s no wonder the community has attracted over 150 buyers in just one year.

Best Places to Retire in Florida - Maple Ridge at Ave MariaInside the community you’ll find beautiful, Mediterranean-inspired architecture, and two different home collections that are sure to give you the home you are looking for. The Captiva Garden Collection offers a spacious 2,569 to 4,228 square feet of living space, while The Capistrano Estate Collection can give you a little more room, from 3,041 to 5,103 square feet. All homes are available with upgraded features—stainless steel appliances, Euro-style wood cabinetry, granite counter tops—that are included in the price of the home. Luxury homes aren’t the only thing Maple Ridge offers. With sidewalks meandering throughout the community, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood. For those who have a more brisk pace, walking and biking trails can be found inside Maple Ridge, too. And for the days when you just want to relax, you can head to the clubhouse and lounge by the pool, which will be built first quarter of 2015.

While there’s much excitement to be found within Maple Ridge, it’s location only adds to it. In the heart of Collier County, Southwest Florida’s newest hometown gives you access to some of Florida’s greatest features. Located in Ave Maria, Florida, a new development not far from Naples, where Town Center serves as a social hub for neighborhood residents of all ages. Quaint and picturesque, Town Center features a brand new Publix Supermarket and is just a few steps away from the community’s grand gated entry. For some green space, you can head either to the North Park, which has a playground, athletic fields, and picnic pavilions, or the South Park, where you can indulge in a game of softball or bocce ball. If you feel like splashing around with the grandkids, the water park is also a huge hit in the area. Beaches are nearby too, with miles of white sand beaches stretching along the Gulf of Mexico.

For the golfer in the family, Naples is known for having the second most golf holes per capita in the country, and plays host to the annual PGA Champions Tour and the Shark Shoot Out. Artsy folks can also get their fill here, as the city is named one of the country’s “10 Best Art Towns.” With places like the von Liebig Art Center, and Sugden Theatre, there are plenty of ways to indulge in the world of art. Shopaholics will love the wide variety of retail in the Naples area, such as the Waterside Shops at Pelican Bay and Miromar Outlets.

Best Places to Retire in Florida - Naples - Ave Maria - Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary - FloridaAt Maple Ridge you’re also not far from big cities like Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. Other nearby attractions worth checking out are the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Rookery Bay, the Naples Zoo, and the Naples Botanical Gardens. And if this isn’t enough to draw you in, there are tons of events going on in the area throughout the year, including the Great Dock Canoe Race, and the Winter Wine Festival, which has donated over $100 million in the past decade to local children’s charities.

Between its gorgeous architecture, top notch amenities, and endless opportunities to take advantage of in the surrounding area, there’s no doubt Maple Ridge has everything you’re looking for. This new community can give you the Florida sunshine you crave in one of the best places to retire, and so much more.
