Sun City West

Senior Male Golfer Playing Bunker Shot On Golf CourseSun City West is the second of the Sun Cities in the NW corner of the Phoenix Valley.  Construction and homes sales began in 1978 as the first Sun City sold out.  It took until 1997 for Sun City West to complete their build-out.   The community boundaries are Bell Rd to the south, Grand Avenue to the east and El Mirage to the west.  The new state road 303 curves around the northern boundary. Most of Sun City West is excluded from the Maricopa School Districts, and therefore enjoys lower real estate tax.   The lower real estate taxes combined with the low maintenance fees make Sun City West a very desirable location for the retiring active adults on a fixed income. The financial incentive plus the tremendous number of clubs and activities and of course the opportunity to play 9 golf courses all combine to create another extremely desirable 55+ retirement location.  The variety of single level home styles, patio homes, and condos offer a wide range of home pricing. Within the community the streets are approved for driving your golf carts and you will find shopping, churches, and banks, drug stores, grocery stores and the Del Webb hospital.

Trilogy at Vistancia

Happy woman outdoorsTrilogy at Vistancia Welcome to the Sonoran Desert, home of Trilogy at Vistancia. In this pristine setting you will find a gated, private community that will nourish the soul, comfort the heart and excite the imagination. Trilogy is part of the multi-generational Vistancia, named America’s Best Master Planned Community 2005.

The community has been designed to make it easy for you to create the life of your dreams and make the most of every day.  Features include the 35,000 sq ft Kiva Club, Alvea Spa and Athletic Club, the Center for Higher Learning and a championship golf club.

Trilogy Golf Course, a par 72 Gary Panks designed course has received many awards.  It is honored to have recently been recognized by Golf Digest magazine with their highest possible rating – 5 out of 5 stars.

Westbrook Village


Happy Senior Couple Outside Cooking on A Summer BarbecueWestbrook Village in Peoria
: Located just west of the 101 between Beardsley and Union Hills, Westbrook Village was designed with a small town village concept as the goal. It has achieved that while offering a broad mix within its 4000 homes.  Choose from luxurious 3 car garage homes sitting comfortably on their oversized lots to the lock and leave 900 sq ft apartment style condos overlooking the golf course.   The Village has two 18 hole golf courses and two fully equipped recreation centers, The Lakes and The Vistas.  It has two restaurants as well.  Among the many active groups in the community is the Westbrook Village Players. This theatrical group puts on 2 plays a year, spring and fall, and all interested residents are invited to participate in these presentations. Westbrook Village was built by UDC in 1983 with completion of Phase 2 in 1999.  It is well located for major shopping, convenient to big event sports facilities and fast freeway access.  It is often described as "lush with greenery" referring to the abundance of trees and shrubs and the attention to landscaping so often missing in a community.

Sun City Grand

Senior Couple Running In The WoodsIn 1996 construction began on Sun City Grand just to the west and south of Sun City West, with Grand Avenue (Rt. 60) being a divider.  This Active Adult Community was to have a greater range of home sizes.  It was smaller with only 10,000 homes, 5 pools and 3 golf courses.   The community was sold out in 2004. This community is truly “grand”, the facilities are extensive and include 5 activity centers, with meeting rooms, classrooms, 2 with complete fitness set ups, 2 with indoor and outdoor pools, and even a ballroom in one! The play courts are as varied as the centers, there are 12 pickle ball courts, 14 tennis courts and 8 Bocce Ball courts scattered around the community.

Residences vary tremendously. There are one bedroom condos with less than 1000 sq ft complete with their own community pool and clubhouse which are a popular choice for many as winter getaways. The luxurious estate homes sprawl over ¼ acre and many exceed 3,000 sq. ft. There is truly a home in Sun City Grand for every taste, be it an escape for a few weeks at a time or full time lavish living. This is definitely not your Grandparents retirement center.

Sun City

Grandparents And Grandchildren Playing Board Game At HomeThis was the first of the Active Adult Communities in Phoenix’s North West Valley.

It was opened by Del Webb in 1960.  The grand opening was a very festive occasion; Some 25,000 visitors toured the homes in that first weekend.  Sales were brisk and by 1978 when the last home was built, the city had 26,000 homes.  The popularity of the community has been on the rise in the past few years due to the proximity to freeways and the many activities of the northwest valley.  Sun City has no children, therefore no schools and the unique situation of no school real estate taxes either.   This has been a big attraction for buyers.   With 11 golf courses, the golf frontage homes are plentiful and are ideal for retirees who are game to remodel and update.  Activities cover every area of interest one could wish,  the clubs are too numerous to list.  7 swimming pools and rec centers have every home within walking distance, or a golf cart ride.  Many of the golf carts are street licensed, so one need not have an automobile for shopping.

Corte Bella

Ladies in Golf CartCorte Bella is one of the newer jewels in the Del Webb/Pulte crown of adult communities. It is a small upscale community off the beaten path, but beautifully designed.

Many have focal points of outdoor fireplaces or tinkling fountains. All designs extend the living space into the outdoors. The community’s 10,000 square foot center houses a fitness club with spa treatment rooms, separate men’s and women’s lounges and locker rooms, pools, indoor whirlpool and saunas, and private sun patios.
