Luxury Private Club Near Orlando Now Offers 100 Condos for Sale/Rent
By Scott Kauffman
Nearly 10 years after sitting vacant in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, The Club at Bella Collina, Central Florida’s premier luxury lakefront and private golf club community, is thriving with dozens of new golf course homes and equally as many multi-million-dollar residences in the exclusive estate section.
Meanwhile, another popular new real estate investment and residential lifestyle at Bella Collina are two- and three-bedroom condominium residences that opened nearly four years ago as part of the club's 100-unit Siena at Bella Collina.
Nestled along the picturesque shore of private Lake Siena, the new Condo Lodge represents a new age of country club living in Central Florida with unprecedented access to world-class private club amenities while enjoying the maintenance-free, turnkey lifestyle of Siena’s condominiums.
For instance, when the condos were first released to the public, all Siena owners took advantage of tailored membership privileges at the Club at Bella Collina, including complimentary use of the club’s restaurants, full-service spa and salon, plus opportunities to socialize with other members at private events.
For residents desiring more comprehensive sports or golf memberships, Bella Collina allowed Siena owners to upgrade their club privileges on a ‘pay-for-play basis’ and gain access to the private club’s Sir Nick Faldo-designed championship golf course, resort-style pool complex, multiple Har-Tru tennis courts and Sportivo Centro fitness center.
For example, seasonal Siena residents who might not live in Central Florida full-time will be able to “turn on and turn off” their memberships at will, a rare opportunity by most private club standards. In other words, it’s the ultimate private club membership or experience, without the long-term club commitment.
Of course, Siena condo owners have everything else that Bella Collina homeowners already treasure, peaceful country-like setting with close proximity to Orlando’s world-renowned entertainment, upscale shopping and dining and convenient access to two international airports. For most, it’s the quintessential private club lifestyle – all within 30 minutes of one of the world’s busiest cities.
Bella Collina is a 1,900-acre guard-gated private golf and lakefront community owned and operated by DCS Investment Holdings, a private equity group based in West Palm Beach, Fla. DCS Investment Holdings is owned by Dwight C. Schar, co-owner of the Washington Redskins and founding chairman of NVR Inc., one of America’s largest homebuilders.
Bella Collina is widely known for its iconic 75,000-square-foot Italianate-styled clubhouse that annually plays host to dozens of destination weddings.
