Master Bedroom with a Master View | Condos in Bonita Springs

condos in bonita springs

Looking for the best condos in Bonita Springs? Look no further- they’re right here in The Colony at Pelican Landing!

At The Colony, you’ll find a wide variety of stunning high-rise condos that have the amenities and features you want in a luxury home. Few other condo units demonstrate this as much as unit 2005.

Unit 2005 is a 20th-floor luxury condo in Florencia, one of The Colony’s best high-rise condo communities. It is a three-bedroom condo with two full baths and one half bath spread out over a generous 2,273 square feet of living space.

There are a lot of great selling points for this particular unit, from its granite countertops in the gourmet kitchen to upgraded cabinetry, an open floor plan, and tiled balcony. One of my personal favorites, though, is the master bedroom.

The master bedroom is not only large and spacious; it also has a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay, a western view from 20 floors up that gives you marvelous Southwest Florida sunsets. That’s right – you can enjoy a delicious sunset from the comfort of your own bed. Few condos in the area can say that, meaning this is a priceless opportunity for a beautiful view.

Of course, you’ll want to get out of the condo at some point – and The Colony has you covered. You can enjoy the social room, grand salon, fitness room, and movie theater in Florencia. You can also enjoy a nice dinner at The Bay Club, or take to the bay and canoe or kayak. A round of golf or tennis might also suit you, and you can do all of that in The Colony.

Should You Buy a House or a Condo? | Bonita Springs Real Estate

Bonita Springs real estate has some of the best condos in the state. I firmly believe this. But our area also has some of the best single-family houses.

How do you decide which one to pick? Which type of home is better for you? And does it really matter?

Both condos and houses have similarities, and either one can make for a great home, but you might prefer one over the other. Here is a quick guide to how you can choose between buying a house or buying a condo.

Privacy and Proximity

One major difference between houses and condos is that single-family homes tend to be more private than condos, mainly because there is more space between you and your neighbor. Contrast this with a condo, which typically has one or more neighbors that share a wall with you. You could live in a high-rise with three to five other families on the same floor. Even in a two-family unit, you are still in close proximity to neighbors.

Some see this as a tipping point. Others don’t mind and actually prefer close proximity. It really comes down to your preference.

Back Yards Versus No Yards

Single-family homes also usually come with back yards. Condos, as you can imagine, usually don’t. This can be an advantage to you – you may want a back yard for your pets or family. Or, like some of my clients, a back yard may be unnecessary and a waste of space for you, making a condo more preferable. (Plus, not having a yard means you don’t have to mow it!)

Maintenance

Both homeowners and condo owners have to worry about maintaining the interior of their homes, but in many cases, condo owners don’t have to worry about maintaining the exterior – which includes not only the exterior of the home but any landscaping that needs to be done.

Homeowners, on the other hand, have to maintain everything on their property.

Community and Amenities

Finally, condo owners tend to benefit from more-established communities complete with common areas and amenities, such as dining, sports, fitness centers, boating, etc. If you own a single-family home, you will have neighbors and may even have a great community, but chances are you won’t have the same access to amenities (unless you live in a higher-end or gated community).

In the end, when it comes down to Bonita Springs real estate, it’s all based on personal preferences. Take a look at both homes and condos and see which one better fits your style.
