Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch

Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch is located to the north west of the greater Phoenix Valley of the Sun in the town of Wickenburg.  Wickenburg is a true western town known for being the Roping Capital of Arizona and maybe even the country.  It has a year round population of 7000 doubling in the winter months.

Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch offers open land behind or abutting approximately 90% of the homesites. If your looking for beautiful mountain views you have come to the right location.  Due to the hillier terrain  they have terraced most of the community offering fabulous views of the surrounding mountains for not just a few but the majority of homes.

Like the other Trilogy communities, Wickenburg Ranch is a resort community.  With the Alvea Spa, Big Wick and Li’l Wick golf, 20 miles of trails the 40,000 square foot indoor and outdoor clubhouse and much more.  One of the unique elements of the community is the Solstice Park,  sunken sitting area to enhance the dark night skies of Wickenburg with a state of the art digital telescope for ultimate star gazing.

This Trilogy community is part of Shea homes Active Lifestyle Communities, not age restrictive.  Families are welcome to live in this community.  There has been discussion about the builder doing a section of the community as strictly 55+ but at this time it hasn’t been established.

Great news, as of January 2018 Wickenburg Ranch is opening a 55+ neighborhood. This section of the community will be age restrictive, while the remainder of the community will be open for anyone looking to enjoy the views and lifestyle.

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.

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.
