California homebuilder Standard Pacific Homes has officially launched its newest gated community in Phoenix.
Dubbed The Enclave at Blossom Hills, the development is situated at the base of South Mountain Park and minutes away from downtown Phoenix, providing residents with convenient access to the area’s best employment, dining and entertainment options. Sky Harbor International Airport and downtown Tempe are also just short drives away.
The neighborhood features eight brand-new home designs specifically tailored to meet the needs of today’s most discerning home shoppers.
Homes range from approximately 2,900 to 4,350 square feet and contain as many as five bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. Among a series of contemporary design elements, the properties showcase flexible living spaces, gourmet kitchens, generous bedroom counts, spa-like master suites, large outdoor covered living areas, as well as plenty of storage space in both single- and two-story plans. Additionally, homes may include an optional front casita, an office or even a puppy wash station.
The exterior styles of the homes are inspired from the architectural marvels of the Southwest, offering Hacienda Ranch, Spanish Colonial and European Cottage elevations.
Prices for the estate-size residences within The Enclave at Blossom Hills start in the $400,000s, according to the developer.
Founded and headquartered in Orange County, California, Standard Pacific Homes specializes in building family-oriented communities, with a particular focus on the nation’s largest housing markets, including California, Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Colorado.
Meanwhile, Broadstone Camelback, a 270-unit luxury apartment community in the upscale Biltmore area, has been awarded LEED Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, reported AZ Big Media.
Developed by Alliance Residential, the multifamily complex offers a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom residences ranging in size from 650 to 1,100 square feet.
The community incorporates a variety of green elements and sustainability features, including an energy-efficient building envelope (insulation), recycled building materials, high-efficiency mechanical systems, water-conserving fixtures and irrigation systems, environmentally conscious landscaping, high-efficiency low-E windows, climate-controlled elevators and halls, enhanced indoor-air quality, EnergyStar appliances and electric vehicle charging stations.
