Share Article

Active lifestyle resort and retirement community developer boosts sales amid otherwise slow economy, indicating baby boomers’ desire for quality and luxury.

The year 2010 may go down as one of the worst years for the housing market. However, Trilogy by Shea Homes, a developer of active lifestyle resort communities, continued to do well and thrive.

In Arizona, Trilogy boasts two active adult communities that have boosted its new home sales—Encanterra Country Club and Trilogy at Vistancia.

About an hour from Phoenix lies the private Encanterra Country Club in San Tan Valley, where home sales market share in the Southeast Valley active adult market grew 17% from 2009 to February of 2011. Trilogy at Encanterra, a new active adult enclave within Encanterra Country Club, offers seven floor plans, two of which are brand new to the Encanterra master planned community. The spec levels in all homes have been adjusted to provide more affordable options for consumers who want to live in a private country club setting.

One of the biggest benefits to purchasing a home at Trilogy at Encanterra is the social membership privileges at La Casa – a private club that boasts 60,000+ square feet of indoor and outdoor luxury including four dining options ranging from fine, seasonal fare at Bistro 1528 to casual Café Solaz, the pool-side grill, 2 full bars, a wine tasting venue, a full-service spa, the Mallorca Event Center, an athletic club that includes a women-only gym, three pools, lighted championship tennis courts, and an outdoor amphitheater.

To deliver memorable experiences to active adult baby boomers, at the beginning of 2011, Encanterra launched The Good Life Festival, a concert series featuring award-winning artists such as The Guess Who, Three Dog Night, Kenny G and Chicago.

Located among the beautiful foothills of north Peoria in the Northwest Phoenix metro area, Trilogy at Vistancia was the number one selling active adult community capturing 35 percent of market share last year, and has retained that position into 2011. Vistancia was named America's Best Master Planned Community in 2005, a recognition defined by its resort-style amenities.

Trilogy at Vistancia includes a thoughtfully organized collection of multi-generational family villages, all connected by a hiking-trail system. Homeowners are surrounded by acres of open space in which to play and enjoy the 334 days of Arizona sunshine.

At the heart of the Trilogy community is the Kiva Club, a 35,000-square-foot hub for connecting with others. Under its roof, the state-of-the-art athletic club includes everything from cutting-edge fitness equipment to Tai Chi classes, health and fitness trainers and its own naturopath. Members can indulge in a massage treatment at the Alvea Spa or enjoy delicious cuisine and company at Café Solaz or The Verde Grill.
