Wild Blue is one of the newest and largest master-planned community in Southwest Florida. Currently in development, it spans over 3,000 acres, situated in Estero, Florida, between Fort Myers and Naples. A one of its kind, lake-front community, it is a collaboration between four of the region’s most renowned builders, each with their own variety of homes being developed. This gated community has water views and offers over 40 customizable floor plans from four different builders. The homes will range from 1,500 to 4,000 square feet and from $400,000 to more than $4 million.
Formerly a limestone mine, Wild Blue takes advantage of the existing land which includes three large man-made lakes. These lakes occupy over 800 acres within the community. In addition to the residential single-family homes in the community, it will also include 40,000 square feet of retail space as well as a public park. The park will be managed by Lee County and created in part to the donation of 488 acres from the Wild Blue development.
Wild Blue Real Estate
Once completed, the community will include approximately 1,100 single family homes, with a wide range of sizes and prices. All homes will have a West Indian style to them, creating a true tropical vibe. Each of the developers has their own proposal for the homes, see below for those specifics.
Lennar Homes, area builders since 1954, will be developing homes in the mid range, 1,800-3,800 square feet, between $400,000 and $700,000.
Equally as experienced, Pulte Homes will be offering higher end homes of similar size (1,600 to 4,000 square feet). Their prices will start out around $400,000 but quickly rise to over $1 million. These homes are designed with floor plans meant to bring families together in an open flexible living space.
A newer developer (relatively speaking), Stock Development will be building some of the most luxurious homes in the community. With 148 lots on their building list, the finishes and amenities are sure to impress, with prices approaching $4M!
Finally, WCI, a Lennar Company, will also be building within the Wild Blue community. For technology lovers, Lennar has a Wi-Fi Certified home design, putting everything at your fingertips!
