VineyardsCrsThe Vineyards in Naples, Florida, has been established since 1988 and is about 95%  built out.  One reason this lushly landscaped community is doing so well is its financial situation. Fiscally sound, Vineyards is debt free, 100% owned by the community so can never be taken over by a lender and there is no CDD (Community Development District) fee that in many other Florida communities means increases in a buyer’s’ yearly property taxes earmarked for development of infrastructure. For the Vineyards these costs have already been paid by the developer up front. And another good thing: Vineyards never accesses its residents.

With a great location right off the interstate (Route I-75}, less than 30 minutes to the SW Regional International Airport in Fort Myers and close to shopping, restaurants, medical services and entertainment venues. Vineyards residents enjoy beautiful landscaping, several gated neighborhoods and an onsite 32-acre community park.  Its Mediterranean-style architecture is extremely attractive and there are a variety of home styles including mid-rise condominiums, villas, coach homes, single-family homes and estate homes.

The purchaser will be responsible for yearly dues that range from $8,950 to $3,190 and club charges. Also pre-construction pricing is available for new coach homes in the Vista Pointe section.
