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.
