Encore at Eastmark

Senior Couple Putting On In Line Skates In Park

Located in the southeast valley on the site of the former General Motors Proving Ground is the new master planned community of Eastmark.

Nine builders are developing the project, each builder offering several home styles and price ranges. Parks and playgrounds abound.   This plan of situating an Active Adult community within a larger Master Planned community is a popular one.

It allows the younger families their schools and playgrounds and ball fields, while grandparents can be nearby but enjoy their privacy, quiet and separate adult activities.   AV Homes are presenting their 55+ community “Encore at Eastmark”  on the southern edge of the property with views of the Superstition Mountains.  The connections to the main freeways are within a few miles creating a desirable location for the Active Adult who is working in the valley.  The majority of new homeowners in Encore are moving to the community from the nearby towns of Gilbert, Chandler and Mesa. Currently there is a higher ratio of year round residents than other Active Adult Communities.

Encore residents will have their own facilities and will share the Mesa City Park amenities with the Eastmark families.  The proximity of Mesa-Gateway airport offers connections to many western cities.  Encore is a lovely community with many contributing factors to facilitate the 55+ Active Adults move into a fun filled retirement.

Currently there are no resale homes in this community

Lone Tree

active-adult-couple-bbq_thumb.jpgThe newest Pulte Active Adult Living Community is Lone Tree.  Located in Chandler, the small community of only 72 homes, is adjacent to the older Pulte communities of Solera and Springfield Lakes which adjoin the Lone Tree Golf Course.   Lone Tree is unique, not only for its’ intimate size, but that the only amenity besides being gated, is a reduction in fees to use the Lone Tree Golf Course. The residents will not have reciprocal use of the Solera/Springfield Lakes clubhouses and amenities.   The target homeowner is one who may still be working in the valley or perhaps with already established community activities and who just wants age restrictive surroundings, the security of a gated community and a beautiful new Pulte home. The first residents will be moving into their new homes in April of 2016 and community completion is expected within the year.

Power Ranch

Best friendsPower Ranch is the master planned community that has set the standard in the southeast valley.    Power Ranch is designed to celebrate diversity and foster the active Arizona family lifestyle with a wide variety of homeowner activities. Although Power Ranch is a growing community, it retains the small town feeling that is the hallmark of the best places to live. Power Ranch is a multi-award winning community. It was selected as the Best Master planned Community 2003, 2004 and 2005 by Ranking Arizona. It was recognized as one of the five Best Master Planned Communities the Nation by the National Association of Home Builders.   The planners of Power Ranch have breathed new life into the old notion of hometown neighborhoods connected in a greater community. What’s old is new again.

Shady tree lined streets are designed to discourage speeders. Lush landscaping will offer a cool respite on a warm summer day. Each neighborhood is built around a central park which is the hub of neighborhood activity.  The first six neighborhoods at Power Ranch are knit together by meandering paseos. In the future, new neighborhoods will join the trail system. And all trails lead to the center of the community. There you will find the Community Park and Clubhouse with an abundance of recreational amenities. Their new elementary school is adjacent to the first clubhouse. More than a dozen builders have participated in the development of Power Ranch, when it reaches build-out it will have a population of over 15,000 with 5,400 residential units plus retail/office and commercial space.  The second clubhouse is now opened to serve the second half of the development.

Solera is also known as Springfield Lakes

Senior man working outSolera is also known as Springfield Lakes:  This 55 Plus community is located off Riggs Road in the SE corner of the Valley.  Solera was designed by Del Webb and built by Pulte when the two companies merged in 2001, it was built out in 2005. It is a finely done community combining the expertise of both builders.  The amenities are what have become expected within the Del Webb communities, but are enjoyed by only the 1100 residents in this small community.   The 18 hole award winning Lone Tree Golf Course winds thru the community with their clubhouse and restaurant at the entrance.   The combination of the green fairways and magnificent views of the San Tan Mountains make The Grille at the clubhouse a popular place to unwind after a strenuous day of enjoying your retirement.

Sun Lakes

Portrait Of Four Friends Enjoying A Game Golf

Sun Lakes is a large Active Adult Community in the south-east valley built by Robson.  The total community is close to 6 square miles, divided north and south by Riggs Road and east and west by Dobson and Alma School Roads.  It has three 18 hole private golf courses, one 18 hole and three 9 hole public courses. It is a golf cart friendly community with reserved golf cart parking at all of the recreation centers. There are five clubhouses, one for each section.  There are several restaurants and cafes within the recreation facilities.   

It separates itself into three neighborhoods with 3 separate HOAs.

The first neighborhood, Sun Lakes #1 was started in the mid 70’s, and consists of manufactured homes and small casitas.  

The next neighborhoods built include Cottonwood and  the gated Palo Verde,  followed by Oakwood and Ironwood completed in 2004.  Both Oakwood and Ironwood are gated.    

The most recently completed neighborhood is Oakwood which combined with Ironwood is called IronOaks.  There are some unusually large homes there, as compared to most Active Adult Communities, even having some two story homes. All five sections have homes backing up to lakes and golf courses. Oakwood and Ironwood share large recreation complexes which include the fitness center, tennis club, golf club, pools, craft and games, libraries and restaurants.

Each of the three main neighborhoods have club houses, activities centers, exercise rooms, tennis courts and swimming pools.  The size and number of each amenity varies.  For example each of the neighborhoods has tennis courts, but the IronOaks clubhouse has a dozen courts with a membership tennis club and a membership fitness center.   The HOA fees in each section cover use of that section’s basic facilities. Use of the more enhanced facilities, such as the IronOaks Tennis club, is available by separate membership fees.
