Street Level ‘Drive Through’ – Reunion Resort

By Kev
At Oct 27, 2016
Our latest ‘Drive Through’ videos reveal a thriving Reunion Resort!

The amazing custom homes at Reunion Resort are the most enviable within Central Florida.
With no comparable community, it’s not surprising that the luxury gated golf resort is building out quickly.
There’s simply no other short term rental development that can even come close to this beautiful place.

With 3 PGA golf courses, and a short 12 minute drive to Disney, it’s no small wonder that Orlando fans and keen investors are settling within Reunion Resort.
Is there a good financial return on a Reunion Resort vacation home?
We ourselves own within Reunion Resort and would also point out that most McNally clients own multiple properties here.
Proof in itself that there’s an opportunity to do well, with the right lot, perfect home and great furnishing packages!

Here’s a brief run through of Reunion Resort’s main streets and routes, for a snapshot of the Resort (as of November 2016).


Desert Mountain Court – Reunion Resort’s Fairway Ridge

Desert Mountain Ct is located within the West side of Reunion Resort and enjoys spectacular views of the Jack Nicklaus designed PGA golf course.
Desert Mountain has established itself as one of the most popular areas within Reunion, and is very much on its way to becoming ‘built out’.
A number of lots still remain, however and the mixture of wide and narrow lots make this one of the most interesting areas of this side of the Resort.
Single family From 35ft single width lots to wide double lots with 3 floors.  Lots from asking prices of around $120k upwards at the time of writing.


Muirfield Loop – Reunion Resort’s Legends Corner (Even Lot Numbers)

The large, spacious Muirfield Loop setting folds around the magnificent 14th fairway of the Jack Nicklaus designed PGA course, with additional views over the 10th and 13th holes.
Once known as ‘The Tradition’ course, it is now officially referred to as ‘The Nicklaus Course’ and offers some of the most visually appealing, but deeply challenging golfing here at Reunion Resort.
Lots of water, wooded areas and large 55ft wide single lots have created the most sought after location for property owners.
The blend of large homes and ‘super mansions’ here are a delight to see, and that impression of exclusivity ensures that Muirfield Loop is the hottest place for vacation rental occupancy within the resort.
Lots are becoming scarce and prices are rising.
Expect to pay $300+ for a good 55ft wide lot, maybe more for lots with prime views or larger ‘pie shaped’ rear boundaries.
You can easily get a substantial 8 or 10 bedroom luxury home on the right 55ft lot, but the growing trend towards building on ‘double lots’ makes Muirfield Loop the mansion ‘hot spot’.
Muirfield is home to a number of our lovely McNally homes, but if you want to join the small list of Elite homeowners at Reunion, we highly recommend contacting us right away, before it is literally too late!


More Streets will be added shortly!

In the meantime, please feel free to contact us for the latest list of available lots within Reunion Resort!

Central Florida – The Best Location For Custom Built Homes!

Luxury Mansion Desert Mountain Ct Reunion Resort

A McNally Dream Home Currently Under Construction at Reunion Resort Kissimmee

Central Florida’s property market has recovered extremely well since the economic woes of almost a decade ago.
The sunshine state’s population rate of growth even outstripped California in 2015, offering a perfect indicator of Florida’s appeal and success.
Population growth is without a doubt one of the key factors in real estate values and the fact that Florida jumped New York to become the 3rd most populous state within the USA, bodes well for current and future homeowners within Central Florida.

The region itself has seen unprecedented investment from obvious sectors such as Tourism, and there’s no sign of let up from the main players, Disney and Universal.
Along with that investment, a steady influx of high net worth legal immigrant investors and executives are seeking to call Florida home, or at the very least ‘second home’.
Those theme parks, hotels, service companies and restaurants are fueling a strong demand in luxury homes, prestigious golf memberships and those elusive lake lots that define the state as one of the most fun filled locations within the USA.

Although new communities are springing up all around Osceola, Polk, Orange and Lake counties, there’s a common knowledge that the very best locations, are in fact approaching a natural saturation.  This of course means one thing; prices rise for the best lake lot and golf view homes within areas like Windermere, Lake Butler and Lake Nona.
New man made lakes and stunning new golf courses are not out of question, and Lake Nona has been a great success story towards the east of the tourism area of Central Florida.
The demand for such communities is staggering, so much so, that roadways, restaurants and shopping areas are caught on the hop for a few years as the developments race ahead with record closings.

Here’s a quick look at why Central Florida is the best place for luxury home buyers, including this cool list of the rich and famous!

  1. Gone but not forgotten – Moving to another state can be a big wrench for any family.
    Florida is blessed with so many upsides, that family and friends soon see the joy in being able to visit family and friends as often as they can!
    Be prepared to see your loved ones more often than you did back home!
  2. A sporting chance – If it is outdoors, Florida is for you!
    Golf, Surfing, sailing, paddle boarding, boating, flying, off roading, fishing, horse riding, trekking, hunting, team sports and more are right here for you and your kids to enjoy.
    Best of all, it’s all year round.  The almost non existent winters open up so much opportunity to keep skill levels honed.
    It’s no wonder that the USA’s leading golfers call Florida their home!
  3. Take to the sky! – As one of the busiest airports with the USA, Orlando International Airport is also one of the most competitive centres when it comes to air fares.
    Low cost domestic flights ensure that you can reach your favorite destinations within a few hours without a huge expense.
  4. Cruising through life! – Ask any local resident where they love to spend their precious vacation time and you will hear ‘cruising’ as the most frequent answer.
    Cape Canaveral port is located just under an hour away from much of Central Fl.  You can reach the whole world from there and the off season deals are incredibly appealing to local residents that simply can’t resist the appeal of deserted Caribbean resorts and glorious year round whether.
    The charm of Cuba is still to be discovered by many USA residents and there’s no better place to begin that journey than Florida.
  5. The weather – For most, this needs little justification.  All year long warmth is one of the region’s greatest assets.  Perfect for any of us that have had enough of bone numbing temperatures and icy roads back home.  If you miss that romantic winter chill, after all, it’s just a short flight away for a weekend break.  Surely enough!
  6. Great Food – With lots of competition, the region’s restaurants cater for a wide diversity of cuisine styles!
    There’s something for every taste and plenty of it too.  Great quality and fresh produce is often home grown or at least brought into the region by Florida’s fabulous ports.
    Seafood, ‘Island’ Caribbean influences, and an eclectic collection of top restaurants make Central Florida an exciting opportunity to dine in style!
  7. Endless, literally endless fun! – OK, we know you probably knew already, but we have some amazing theme parks right here in Orlando.
    But, there’s so much more than the obvious here too.  As a full time Floridian, you will join us in the joy of discovering the real beauty and charm that is so often overlooked by the +55 million tourists that come into the region each year.  Whether it’s a glass bottom boat ride on one of the crystal clear warm water springs, a visit to Bok Tower Gardens or an adrenalin filled Everglades airboat ride, there’s a magic here that is irresistible.  That hidden beauty is the true appeal of Florida, and it is truly everywhere, when you open your eyes and see past the obvious.
  8. Life’s a Beach! – Well actually dozens of them when you realize that the Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coast beaches are just a quick family road trip away from the Tourism areas and residential communities of Central Florida.  The Atlantic Coast is regarded as one of the best USA surfing regions, thanks to a regular supply of energy (waves), and that glorious weather.
    Over on the Gulf, life seems to slow right down.  It’s hard to explain why or how, but a day there is the ultimate chill out therapy and the gently sloping sands offer waist high water for family fun.
  9. Space Coast – Although the charm and mystique of the Space Shuttle Program is no more, the Kennedy Space Centre is a fabulous full day visit opportunity for science fans.
    For residents, the regular launches from Kennedy and Canaveral are a way of life.  Worth keeping in your diary, especially for the spectacular night time launches.  Just another great part of life in Florida, that is visible from just about any part of the Central Florida region!
  10. Great people define Florida – Whether you are relocating from another state, or arriving from another country, you will quickly realize that it’s a very warm and friendly place.
    That high population growth pretty much means that your kids’ class mates also came from out of town.  They know how important it is to feel welcome and your children.
    Friendships and ‘fitting in’ are a way of life in the Sunshine State!

Top 10 Considerations For Lake Front Homes

By Kev
At Oct 24, 2016
Luxury Lake Home - Twilight

Watering in the Landscaping at our latest Lake Nona custom build!

  • Are watercraft allowed?  – Do check the legal requirements for access on to the water.  Some lakes and waterways permit nothing at all, not even a kayak, while others might prohibit motor craft of any kind.  Your dreams could soon be dashed without good research!
  • Are Boat Docks or slipways permitted? – Although the home has easy access to the water’s edge, it does not necessarily mean that you can moor your watercraft to your land on a permanent basis.  Thankfully the builder or realtor can easily check such matters out for you in advance.  Some restrictions may apply to the number of piers to the boat dock.
  • Do you want water and electricity on the dock? – Being able to service your boat with water, or power up portable tools can be a make or break for a boat owner.  Be sure to make provision to supply your boat dock with utilities.  Above all, its a lovely lifestyle touch to run a drinks cooler for a lazy afternoon on your boardwalk!
  • Choosing the best materials – the aesthetics of the boat dock should be sympathetic to the surroundings and architecture of your own home.  Tasteful design makes a huge difference!
    Modern materials also make for weather resistance, and much needed in humid or sun drenched states.
  • Future Proof your water craft! – You may be happy with your current boat now, but what will your future needs bring?  Can your boat dock cope?
    Another great piece of advice is to hold back on buying a boat right away.  You could easily select the wrong boat, so spend some time with your new neighbors and increase your knowledge if you can!
  • Bugs are a part of life by the water – Pool screens are the best way to secure a bug free lanai, but modern retractable screens offer solutions to balconies and terraced areas without disturbing the view of the lakeside from the main living areas of the home.
  • Fabulous wildlife to admire – Much overlooked by potential lake front owners, the lake front wildlife is adorable.  Discover or create some cool vantage points to sit and relax with your new ‘community’.  Cameras, binoculars and sketch pads will inevitably become a part of your family life!  Don’t be fearful of gators, but be mindful and design the yard area to keep these cool animals in there part of the world, not yours!
  • Fishing – is always a great way to enjoy the peace of your amazing lake front home.  Research the species in your lake and what lures, bait and techniques work best!
  • Summer kitchens – whether it is down by the dockside, or a part of your lanai, those summer kitchens are perfect for much needed quality family time.  Most family memories are captured during meal times and your stunning new McNally custom home is the perfect place to nurture those precious moments!
  • Locations are limited – Hardly any new lakes get built, so be mindful that lake lot prices will always outgrow the costs of a regular inland lot.  What may seem pricey now, will seem a missed opportunity in years to come if you don’t seize the right opportunity at the right time!
  • Do your research – Understand the historic and typical water levels in the area and design driveways, walkways and your home in general to avoid any damage or inconvenience.  Water levels will occasionally rise, so make sure you have taken the necessary precautions.
    Check insurance costs for your home before you buy, or ask your realtor or builder for a list of insurers that specialize in water front homes.

Traditionally, a 2H pencil scratched out the design of just each and every property within much of the 20th century.
Since the 90s, advances in software development offers powerful creative digital packages that create digital files that are transmitted around the globe at the touch of a button.
Easy to read email attachments are perfect for our discerning clients, that are often based thousands of miles away from the home site.
Although the design time has shortened to some degree, the quality and detailing of the end product is vastly superior to those precious drafting papers of yesteryear.
Most importantly, the homeowner no longer needs to be skilled in ‘reading drawings’ to visualize the results.

Now McNally creates the most amazing floor plans along with 3D interactive ‘walk throughs’, and superbly accurate renderings that demonstrate every possible detail of a home.
The design team can visually verify all of the key features in a design, and even in some cases, an opportunity to improve an area that lacks the ‘wow factor’!
Owners, project managers and the client’s realtor can share visuals online, long before the land is cleared for construction.
Not only does the McNally design process give a realistic insight into a dream home, it goes a long way to avoiding any omissions or misinterpretations.

Our latest build, is a magnificent 14,000 sqft (under roof), 12,000 sqft mansion, located just within minutes of Walt Disney World.
Nestled along the peaceful Jack Nicklaus PGA course at Reunion Resort, keen golf fans will be familiar with the address.
Desert Mountain Ct. borrows its name from another legendary Nicklaus course in Scottsdale Arizona, and a location of that stature commands a lot of respect.
Our design team wanted to do justice to the Nicklaus name and pay homage in the best way possible; a magnificent luxury mansion.
The sumptuous property enjoys stunning views over the 1st tee and fairway of the Reunion Resort’s most beautiful and challenging course.

McNally’s in-house design service provides quick, cost effective responses that assure the team that every small detail of a home has been tended to with expertize.

Because your next home is going to be unique and extraordinary, we would love the opportunity to meet with you, discuss your dream project, at no cost to yourselves!
