Golfers with Baja-leaning souls listen up: a stellar oceanfront golf resort with a luxury residential component in Cabo San Lucas is on the horizon, a partnership between famed golfer Greg Norman and the Solmar Group, longtime developers of award-winning resorts.
In early 2016, Rancho San Lucas on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula broke ground. Phase one, the Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas Resort and The Residences at Rancho San Lucas is expected to open in winter 2017. Soon to follow is an 18-hole Greg Norman-designed golf course, and announced just today, Norman Estates at Rancho San Lucas is opening in 2018, the first community in Mexico under the umbrella of the lauded golfer’s global residential brand.
Set on 834 acres just 15 minutes away from downtown Cabo San Lucas and 30 minutes from the Los Cabos International Airport, the master-planned community has 1.2 miles of Pacific Ocean beachfront, which will be framed by the Norman-designed golf course. Here’s a rendering:
LandDesign, Inc., HKS Architects, and Greg Norman Golf Course Designs collaborated in the plans for the community, which will include villas, luxury single-family homes, and condominiums. The Spanish architectural style will feature rich earth-tones, clay tile roofs, and stucco walls surrounded by harmonious landscaping, as illustrated by this rendering of the main motor court:
Amenities at Rancho San Lucas will include more than a mile of beachfront, the 18-hole golf course and clubhouse designed by Greg Norman, a community park and amphitheater, a tennis center, hiking and biking trails, and a Mexican-style shopping village with retail shops and restaurants. Below is a rendering of a planned restaurant:
The top tier in the development will be Norman Estates, a private, gated community of 32 luxury single-story homes with panoramic ocean views, and 36 luxury condominiums, set against the fourth, fifth, and sixth holes of the golf course.
Styled in coastal hacienda vernacular, the homes will have expansive indoor and outdoor spaces with state-of-the-art infrastructure for relaxed family living and entertaining:
Norman Real Estate’s own interior design team will outfit the model residences, the golf club, and the residents-only exclusive, private beach club in the Australian-born golfer’s signature relaxed style. Renderings below provide a sense of its chic-but-casual Baja vibe:
Norman estates residences will enjoy exclusive use of a private, members-only beach club:
The Los Cabos area of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula offers plentiful activities outside of the resort as well, with numerous golf courses in the area, world-class fishing, a vibrant dining and shopping scene in the city of Cabo San Lucas, and the charming nearby artist community of Todos Santos, all in a setting of scenic beauty with a mild temperate climate year round.
Pricing benchmarks provided for the just announced Norman Estates are starting at $1.5 million for 3-bedroom condominiums and $2-plus million for single-family homes.
