Recently opened in 2010 is CantaMia by Joseph Carl Homes in Goodyear, Arizona. This active adult community for residents age 55 and better was designed to highlight sustainable living to encourage a healthy relationship between residents and the environment. The community sits within the larger master-planned community of Estrella and is surrounded by beautiful lakes and miles of trails. Estrella is open to residents of all ages making this large development ideal for retirees hoping to stay close to younger family, children and grandchildren who may already, or in the future, live in the Estrella neighborhood.
This unique gated Arizona active adult community boasts environmentally friendly construction and features such as an echo solar system standard on every home. Echo solar energy is three times more efficient than the basic solar energy and is also budget-friendly. CantaMia is planned for 1,700 homes including both single family detached homes and attached floor plans. All of the homes follow the “Environments for Living Certified Green” program and include a wealth of environmentally friendly features such as internal moisture management, improved thermal systems, fresh air ventilation and energy efficient lighting and appliances. There are 14 floor plans to choose from ranging in size from 1,189 to 2,852 square feet. Pricing ranges from the mid $100’s to the mid $300’s.
As a newer community the clubhouse is a work in progress. Plans call for the CantaMia clubhouse to open in 2011 with over 20,000 square feet of fun. There will be a state-of-the-art fitness center with aerobics studio, indoor swimming pool and spa plus locker room facilities and steam rooms. Other features planned include a learning center, demonstration and teaching kitchen, library, computer center and numerous multi-purpose rooms for hobbies, crafts, games and club meetings. Outdoors there will be a resort-style swimming pool and pickleball courts plus of course miles of trails and gorgeous landscaping.
While the clubhouse is under construction, current residents are encouraged to use the amenities at the neighboring Estrella community including their 18-hole championship golf course. CantaMia already has a full-time activities director on-staff coordinating group outings, club meetings, social events and more.
This brand new Arizona active adult community is already growing in popularity thanks to its environmentally friendly homes and it fabulous Goodyear location. Goodyear offers a wonderful selection of retail shops, restaurants and entertainment venues all within minutes from CantaMia. For an exciting day trip the city of Phoenix is just a short 45 minutes drive away.
