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.

Trilogy at Verde River

Tegava 1Trilogy at Verde River, originaly the Vista Verde development was to be the third of the “Verdes”. It was sold in 2014, in its’ infant stage, as growth had stalled during the real estate downturn. The golf course was renamed The Tegavah Course, inspired by the Yavapai word for “Gathering Place”.   Shea builders are the buyers and Trilogy is their main Active Adult Community product. Trilogy at Verde River started selling in late 2015, the main clubhouse will break ground in 2016.  The facilities and homes, according to real estate rumors, are going to exceed anything Shea has previously built. The setting alone will contribute to deserving that accolade.  As the newest active adult community in the north-east valley in decades, it will be highly publicized.  On a recent drive-by we saw lots of activity.   If you would like to be kept current on this community, let us know.

SaddleBrooke One and Two

dreamstime_l_15579174.jpgSaddleBrooke is one community with two HOAs. The two were separated in 1994 and have slightly different rules and governance.

SaddleBrooke One has an HOA which has been turned over to the residents to operate. The three golf courses, Tucson, SaddleBrooke and Catalina are totally private with play limited to residents of SaddleBrooke One, Two, the Ranch and their guests.  SaddleBrooke Two is expected to be turned over to the residents in 2015 or 2016 when totally built out by Robson.     Saddlebrooke One has 2059 homes while SaddleBrooke Two presently has 2700 homes with 3,200 expected at completion.

SaddleBrooke One and Two currently share all of their amenities.    The security is maintained by the communities in the form of traffic patrols for autos and golf carts on the private roads connecting the areas. The Security Patrol also provides home checks for absentee residents.

With the incomparable Tucson weather, the magnificent mountain views and the desert color it is easy to sit and just enjoy your resort retirement, but there is so very much to do that you may have to ration your time to be sure of some time to sit and enjoy!

Each of the clubhouses host so many clubs and activities that when you are not playing golf, or using one of the 21 tennis courts, the many Pickleball courts or the 8 indoor and outdoor swimming pools you will want to do something different every day of the month. Each of the fitness centers have full activity calendars.  Enjoy dining and a sunset or a quick lunch between activities, you have 3 restaurants and 3 grills to pick from.  This is resort style retirement at its’ ultimate.

CantaMia

retired couple riding bikesCantaMia is another great example of locating an Active Adult Community within or adjacent to a multigenerational community.   It offers the opportunity for the 55+ family members to enjoy their extensive exclusive Active Adult facilities as well as share the additional recreational activities with their families who live in the Estrella ranch community.   This I think is the best of both worlds.   It is also interesting to see that as families in Estrella grow and reach the empty nest stage, they are purchasing in the adjacent CantaMia!

 

CantaMia was designed by Engle Homes, but no construction was started. It was saved from bankruptcy by Joseph Carl Builders, who then joined with Avatar homes (AVHI on the NASDAQ) under the name of Vitalia by AV Homes.   The total number of homes when built out will reach 1700, a fairly small community by some standards.   The recreational activities however are equal to those of the much larger communities.  The 29,000 sq ft Village Center has indoor and outdoor pools, a beautifully equipped demonstration kitchen, an excellent variety of exercise and activity centers as well as a mini café and wine bar.  The workout room boasts a cushy bamboo floor and the computer room and fitness center have instructors from Estrella Community College.  The common areas use reclaimed water for irrigation in keeping with their entire energy saving theme.  There are 14 model homes to guide your home choice, with emphasis being on their Green building techniques.  Check the current prices on our website.  The builder is a member of the Environments For Living, and is a Green Certified Builder.  The homes have been tested for efficient use of utilities and are awarded very high scores. All homes include solar as an energy source.    In keeping with the Green living, the exercise, cooking and activity programs are designed to encourage healthy life choices.  CantaMia’s Sierra Estrella Mountain views and many lakes provide a tranquil and relaxing setting in which to enjoy your healthy retirement.
