La Fontana is located within the World Golf Village Neighborhoods, a premier golf course community in northeast Florida. The community will offer stunning golf course frontage, maintenance-free living, amenities and amazing vistas. The first phase of the 52-unit project will be ready summer 2015. Pre-construction pricing is still currently being offered on available units in the first phase and reservations are being accepted for phase two.
The area is home to 2,700 acres of nature preserves, with easy access to historic downtown St. Augustine, beautiful beaches, great shopping and luxurious restaurants. Each condo in phase one will have gorgeous views of the eighth hole and fairway of the Bobby Weed designed Slammer & Squire golf course. Additionally nearby is The King & Bear, the only golf course collaboration between Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, the World Golf Hall of Fame and the PGA Tour’s Golf Academy, which offers personalized instruction for golfers at every level.
La Fontana offers spacious three-bedroom three-bathroom and four-bedroom and four-bathroom flats ranging in size from 1,915 square feet to nearly 2,400 square feet of air-conditioned living space. Current pricing Is $280,000 for a three-bedroom and $330,000 for a four-bedroom. The specially-designed floor plans provide each flat with the feeling of a stand-alone home but with the benefits of maintenance-free living associated with condominium ownership. Each unit offers the opportunity to choose from a multitude of options to customize your new space with your lifestyle and design aesthetic.
“We think La Fontana is a completely unique condominium offering for St. Augustine, not only in its unmatched location and design but in the process of its construction and development as well. Our size allows us to be flexible and responsive to individual buyer requests. As an example, we’ve actually been able to change certain structural aspects of standard floor plan designs including removing bathrooms, walls and customizing fireplaces and kitchens, all for specific units based on individual buyer requests. Add to that the multitude of finish options we offer and I think it becomes clear that, while customizing a multi-unit building has its limits, we’re somewhat unorthodox in the extent we’ll go to help our buyers create the home of their dreams. We look forward to delivering the first phase of the project summer 2015,” said La Fontana developer Troy White.
La Fontana units features private single car detached garages, patios on select units, lanais with all units, nine-foot ceilings, gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances and upgraded cabinetry, granite in kitchens and bathrooms, opportunity to select flooring from wood, tile or travertine, a custom designed, spacious master bath, water, sewer, trash, cable TV, and gas included in monthly fees. Residents have the option to select from six cabinet styles in maple or cherry, 14 options of granite, three styles and finishes of Moen hardware, and a full array of backsplash and accent options. Also available is an optional spacious master suite and floor to ceiling cut stone fireplaces in four color options.
The World Golf Village Neighborhoods showcase fantastic entertainment for the public, including the Walk of Champions where you can enjoy dinner at Bill Murray’s Caddyshack Restaurant as well as an IMAX 3D Experience theater, two of the finest golf courses in Florida including the King & Bear and Slammer & Squire Golf Course, the only Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus collaborative course in the world. Residents can learn about history with a quick drive to the charming downtown St. Augustine, the oldest city in the nation, showcasing restaurants, unique sites and beautiful beaches. Plenty of shopping is nearby at two outlet malls and the popular new St. Johns Town Center mall with designer stores and restaurants.
