Terravita Real Estate - North Scottsdale AZ - Winfield Real Estate

by Jeff Daley

Terravita real estate consists 1,380 homes ranging in a resort community ranging in size from 1,500 to 3,800 square feet. Home prices range from the low $300,000 $250,000 to over $1 million. All homeowners are members of Terravita Country Club, which includes a first class fitness center, community pool, spa and tennis courts, and nature trails that reflects Arizona's Sonoran Desert landscape. It was carefully constructed and planned as a gated master-planned community consisting of approximately 823 acres.

Terravita real estate is in the north center part of the valley, surrounded by mountains on all sides, enjoys some 300 plus days of sunshine each year, with an annual rainfall of about 7 inches, which contributes to low humidity and mild winters. The winter temperatures are the talk of the country and it allows Terravita residents to take full advantage of the numerous outdoor recreational opportunities and the scenic beauty of the Sonoran Desert. You will find the community that makes up Terravita real estate in north Scottsdale, at the intersection of Scottsdale Road and Carefree Highway. Because of the elevation that Terravita enjoys the annual temperatures are often 5 to 7 degrees cooler than downtown Phoenix. Just North of Terravita is the town of Carefree, Cave Creek, and the Tonto National Forrest. Nearby is Lake Bartlett and Lake Pleasant.

The Terravita real estate community maintains Southwest architecture guidelines that protect its overall design integrity and property values. Given Terravita's dramatic desert location, many homes
enjoy views of the golf course, Black Mountain, the nearby Boulders Resort area, and stunning sunsets. About half of the residents live in Terravita year-round while the other half use Terravita as a second home.

Impeccable grounds welcome you inside the gated community where you'll find a relaxed, inviting atmosphere among residents and members. Outdoor recreation abounds from spirited rounds of golf, to friendly games of tennis, to nature walks on manicured trails. And when you're ready to unwind, slip into a poolside lounge chair or sip a cocktail on the Clubhouse outside patio - and toast good friends and great times at Terravita.

It's a special place. Not just for the picturesque location or the long list of amenities â�" but for the sense of community fostered by those who live and play here. Both elegant and comfortable, Terravita welcomes those who embrace a balance.
