I have lived in Heritage Bay since 2009 so I know the community as a homeowner, a participating member, and a Realtor. I am a tennis player and a golfer but not one with a $10,000+/yr. game. Heritage Bay fits my needs because it offers a country club lifestyle without the level of initiation and annual fees associated with a private country club. Heritage Bay owners are all full members of the Heritage Bay Golf & Country Club home owners association and have full use of all the facilities for under $4,000 a year.
Heritage Bay was conceived with the idea that in 2006 the entry level condos were going to start just under $400,000 and the single family homes were going to go up to $1,000,000. The high levels of finishes built into the luxury 2006 products were continued by the developer right through to the 2013 build-out. Homes and condos all have granite or Corian counters, stainless appliances, wood cabinets, hurricane doors and windows, and upgrades like crown molding, paver drives, and 18” tile on the diagonal. These styles are right up to current standards so buyers sometimes upgrade but there is no need to update these units.
Heritage Bay offers a respite from the seasonal traffic snarls around the US41 areas yet there are close to 40 businesses within a mile and a half of the community. A 15 minute drive will take you to the beach and the major North Naples shopping, a six minute drive will give you a choice of a Walmart or Target and a wide variety of other restaurants and shops, 30 minutes to 5th Ave South downtown, and 25 minutes to the airport.
The quarry lakes, 27 holes of golf and the surrounding preserve provide every property in the community with a beautiful view. As a Realtor I have seen many of the views and they are all so spectacular that most owners think they have the best view in the community. Post card scenes abound and begin with the spectacular panorama that awaits you as you drive into the community. Stately Royal Palms line the causeway that takes you through the expansive waters of Bolder Lake down to the traffic circle fountain and then on to a view of the majesty of the clubhouse rising above the golf course.
