Every day at 55places, we talk to retirees who think what they want is impossible. Resort-style pools, tight-knit communities, year-round warmth, everything on your doorstep while being close to a big city...having all of these at once may not seem possible. At Sun City Grand, though, it is.
Sun City Grand is the smallest of Del Webb’s three Central Arizona communities with 9,802 homes. The community is then further divided into 63 neighborhoods ranging from 50 to 300 homes, giving residents a chance to form close relationships with their neighbors, almost like a community within a community. On top of this neighborly feeling, residents can join over a dozen chartered clubs and golf clubs as well as smaller specialty and interest groups. Unsure of where to start? The on-site Activities Department Lifestyle Manager can help.
In addition to its active and engaging lifestyle, the entire community is self-contained, meaning any necessity or convenience is just minutes from your door. The five community centers offer fitness centers, crafts and hobby studios, coffee shops, sports courts, and even the Sun City Grand TV Station. Residents enjoy their own magazine, retaurants, and continuing education center. There are four championships golf courses that are ready to play as well as fishing lakes, a pet park, and RV parking for the traveling retiree.
It might seem that such a self-contained community would be isolated, but luckily for residents, Sun City Grand is less than an hour from Phoenix. Whether active adults are looking to hike through Camelback Mountain and the Botanic Gardens or catch the latest basketball, football, or baseball game, this major metropolis has no shortage of exciting activities.
Homebuyers seeking open and updated homes will find them in Sun City Grand. Built from 1996 to 2005, the community offers a variety of home sizes and styles. Retirees can downsize into a series of condos or enjoy the spacious single-family models available.
With such a vibrant array of social groups, amenities, and floor plans as well as pleasant temperatures throughout the year, it’s time to take a closer look at Sun City Grand.
