How to Buy a Waterfront Home with a Great Location and Great Club and Still Get a Great Price.
RAPALLO AT COCONUT POINT
Close to Everything.
Created for today’s individualistic but plugged-in baby boomer Rapallo is located in upscale Estero, Florida just off US 41 and next door to the 14 restaurants and 124 stores and entertainment at Coconut Point Town Center. And Rapallo is only 15 minutes to the beaches or SWF International Airport.
Rapallo is a low-density, eco-conscious, pedestrian-scale, gated resort-lifestyle community of 540 residences nestled around 9 lakes, a protected wildlife preserve and the Club at Rapallo.
The Club with Just About Everything.
No expensive golf course here but virtually everything else. The Club at Rapallo offers an incomparable choice of amenities so residents can design their own lifestyle.
The clubhouse with its lagoon pools, spa, fire pit, fishing pier and freshwater beach. The tennis center with its lighted, Har-tru courts, pro shop and stadium court. The fitness center with its cardio and strengthening programs, circuit training and 25 meter Olympic lap pool. The learning center with its aerobic, yoga and dance studio, media center and creative arts studio.
And scattered throughout Rapallo is a collection of bronze sculptures set in botanical gardens, flowering bocce parks, neighborhood swimming pools, 24 acres of stocked lakes, 43 acres of protected wildlife preserve, a nature boardwalk and 3 miles of walking/biking paths. Best of all, everything is included.
The Italian Riviera Comes to Life
The small coastal towns of Liguria, Italy were the inspiration for Rapallo. The award-winning result is a walkable community and architecture which avoids the stereotype of horizontal beige monotones. Instead Rapallo mixes Tuscan, Provence and Moorish towers, random roof lines, vertical line-breaks, deep shadow-lines and contrasting color palettes with stone, brick, tile and copper to bring the Cinque Terra to life.
Perhaps that’s why the Estero Design Review Committee named Rapallo its inaugural Community of the Year.
Says Jim Wallace, creator of Rapallo “From the beginning our vision was a community where people, connectivity, pedestrian-scale, rhythm, shape, color, textures, green spaces, art and a bit of whimsy come together in a wonderful sense of place.”
Low Monthly Fees…and Everything’s Included
Full club membership is included with every residence so there’s no club equity fee to pay..ever. There’s also no CDD tax and no closing costs. The purchase price is all you need to close on your home and enjoy all the Club at Rapallo amenities plus the restaurants, shopping and entertainment next door at Coconut Point Town Center.
The low monthly fees are also all-inclusive – including insurance, water, sewer, cable, 24/7 security, building and landscape maintenance, club staff and fully-funded reserves – everything except taxes and electricity. And the combined condo/HOA/master/club/cable costs are only $499 a month.
