San Tan Valley house description

Tastefully decorated with fine furnishings and art work, this fabulous property is your home away from home. You will enjoy the large private fenced back yard with a built in barbecue area, a large fire pit and lots of comfortable seating. The gardens are fully landscaped with several types of citrus fruit trees, flowering shrubs and fresh herbs for cooking. Great for gatherings with family or friends or just relaxing with a good book or movie.

Our community membership allows you access to all available amenities of the resort clubhouse, called 'La Casa', including:
- four restaurants with indoor and outdoor as well as private seating;
- a lounge;
- a library;
- preferred pricing at Alvea Spa & Wellness;
- 3 large pools: a resort pool, a lap pool & and indoor pool;
- a complete events centre which is frequently used for weddings;
- the large Mossa Athletic Club with state of the art equipment and classes and
- a fully appointed business centre;
- a lighted tennis and pickleball complex complete with an excellent pro & ball machine;
- a children's playground;
and some access to the private golf club ranked #6 in Arizona!

La Casa is crafted in a welcoming style of a Mediterranean village. It emphasizes timeless architecture and intimate settings surrounded by natural beauty and is infused with the warmth of personal interaction.

There is so much to do in our area, it doesn't get much better than golf in the desert and so many fabulous courses to choose from within a 20 minute drive. A visit to the Apache Trail is a must for hikers, boaters. Take a lake cruise, eat at interesting cafe's, visit a ghost town or go for a swim in nearby Canyon Lake. Truly a gem in the desert! We loved the the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, which is a world class Botanical garden which boosts over 2,600 different types of plants from deserts of Australia, North and South America, southern Africa and other arid-land regions of the world blended in to an incombarable natural setting. Check for classes, tours and education programs. Take along a picnic basket and don't forget to visit historic Superior at the end to your day.

The Queen Creek Olive Mill is a short 5 minute drive and is a unique agri-tourism experience. A family run company that grows and presses olives to produce a hand-crafted extra virgin olive oil. They provide tours and hots catered events and offer a great shopping opportunity in its gourmet marketplace. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Join them on Saturday for Bocci Ball....very fun!!

The San Tan Mountain Regional Park is a short drive to the east. The park consists of 10,198 acres and is a fine example of the lower Sonaran Desert. The park ranges in elevation from about 1,400 feet to over 2,500 feet. The Goldmine Mountain is located in the northern area with a spectacular view of the San Tan Mountain escarpment in the southern portion of the park. The vegation varies from crosote flats to dense saquaro forests. Various types of wildlife may be observed, including reptiles, birds, mammals and athropods. Sunsets are amazing....they also have night guided tours, check with the park for more details.

          Other Amenities

              • Our home is located in a new high end resort style development called Encanterra which opened in 2008. Only 500 of the planned 2,500 homes have been built to date due to the economy since 2008. Therefore none of the superb facilities are over-crowded but there are plenty of friendly people to meet and connect with for a game of golf, tennis, ping-pong, the pools, a drink or conversation. Reservations are recommended on weekends as the restaurants are very popular with Encanterra residents. There are also plenty of great restaurants and pubs to choose from in the area. Our home, like all homes recently built in Encanterra, has solar panels on the roof. The electricity generated from them feeds into the power grid and we take it off the grid when we need it. We only use green cleaning products in our home. So it is completely toxic free. ...moreless

              Located in the South-east part of Valley of the Sun near many natural areas and just 45 minutes from downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale, Encanterra Country Club is one of the most successful & beautiful new private clubs and communities to open in Arizona during the past decade. It is close to Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Queen Creek, Gold Canyon, the Supersition Mountains, San Tan Mountains Regional Park and the spectacular Apache Trial from Apache Junction which takes you to Canyon and Apache Lakes for boating.

              The private Encanterra Country Club is anchored by an award-winning Tom Lehman designed golf course - chosen among the Best New Private Courses in the nation by GOLF Magazine, Golfweek and LINKS Magazine - and La Casa, a beautiful 60,000-square-foot clubhouse featuring multiple fine and casual options, state-of-the-art health and fitness facilities, an exceptional tennis complex (which can also be used for pickle ball), three pools, and the full-service Alvea Spa, which recently was named the state's top Clubhouse Spa by Arizona Foothills.

              By agreement you can take over our membership in Encanterra Country Club during your stay. This gives you entry to all the pools and country club and the right to play for a guest member fee up to 10 - 18 hole rounds or 20 - 9 hole rounds and use of the excellent practice facilities on game days for 2 on the Encanterra golf course. If you stay 3 months there are additional opportunities for the use of the practice facilities and group lessons at a minimal charge.

              For those that like to walk, hike or trial ride San Tan Regional Park is a 15 to 20 minute drive away. There is also good hiking in the Gold Canyon area about 20 to 30 minutes away.

              You also should not miss visiting the Boyce Thompson Arboretum east of Gold Canyon and 3 miles short of the city of Superior. It is world class and is truly spectacular for any nature lover.

              For dog lovers, Encanterra has a very large grassy area near the house which is an informal dog park. It also has many small parks thoughout the property with trials between them.

              Even though you are in the most natural and unspoiled and semi-rural part of the Valley of the Sun you can easily access the more sophisticated attractions of the Valley including other top quality golf courses such as Gold Canyon Dinosaur & Sidewinder & Ocitillo, various live theatres, music from classical to country, art galleries, pro sports teams, high end malls, outlet malls, downtowns and the Desert Botanical Gardens near the Phoenix Airport. We even have an over 400 seat theater with excellent touring shows and school productions 10 minutes away.
