The only thing I do not like here is the close proximity to your neighbors. The homes are pretty close together, just like the rest of AZ. I can hear my neighbors talk on the phone if I am outside. I have been here 5 winters as a snowbird, and it is very nice. Everything I need is within bike riding distance. The grounds and Community Center are kept immaculate. It is not a problem to drive a few miles to get to bigger stores, and they are improving the only road here...Hunt Highway. If you like a place with no traffic and no hustle and bustle, you will love it here. They have wide streets with sidewalks and street lights...some developments do not have this! HOA fees are about $120 a month. Garbage pickup is about $20 a month. Electricity and gas are reasonable...but watch out for the water! $70+ a month regardless how much you use. Overall, it is a great place but the lots need to be bigger for more privacy. The HOA is pretty picky about what you can and cannot do to the outside area of your home.

Sun City Anthem at Merrill Ranch is the hidden jewel of the desert in Arizona. The community is experiencing rapid growth with a mix of year around residents like us and seasonal residents. The primary reason we built in this community was the golf course. Poston Butte is beautiful year round and challenging. There are Couples, Ladies and Men's groups so getting involved is not a problem. It might seen like you are located far from everything, but that is not true. There is very little traffic, but we have everything we need at the entrance to our community. We have driven more miles on our golf cart than on our car. We Love It Here! Away from the hustle and bustle of metro Phoenix or Tucson. We are about half way between both, so we have choices when we want to go to the city. New Models will be opening this month.

After searching two years for our retirement dream, we found our perfect fit at Merrill Ranch. We love the open spaces, inclusion of parks and green belts throughout the community, the quality of the home construction and community center, and the neighbors and staff we have met are wonderful. We are looking forward to this next adventure in life!

I am thrilled with everything about Sun City Anthem! My husband and I moved here to be closer to our son and his family who live at Merrill Ranch. It's so nice to be so close to them and have all these wonderful amenities. I enjoy taking my grandkids to the watermark at Merrill Ranch and playing in the parks. It's really the best of both worlds having our family so close but also having such a great group of new friends and so many fun activities at Sun City.
