Sun City West Overview

Sun City West is a 16,900-home community 2.5 miles west of the original Sun City Arizona. Del Webb constructed the community between 1978 and 1997 and it is favored by home buyers who want reasonably priced homes in a large amenity-laden active adult golf course community.

After the completion of the incredibly popular Sun City Arizona community in 1978, Del Webb Corporation purchased a large tract of land to the northwest and began construction on Sun City West.The newer community incorporates many of the same popular active adult attractions as Sun City, but on a slightly smaller scale.

With the knowledge the Del Webb Corporation gained on the original community, they were able to design a community that matched the needs for an evolving retirement population. Sun City West includes the perfect mix of amenities and activities that cater to active adults who want to stay physically and socially active. The community was designed to intertwine with a variety of retail stores and shopping centers. Most residents find that all of their shopping needs can be accomplished via the golf cart legal streets of Sun City West. Within the community, residents have convenient access to supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, restaurants, post offices, churches and Del E. Webb Hospital.

Sun City West Amenities

Sun City West includes an enviable lineup of amenities that includes four recreation centers, nine golf courses and nine restaurants. The recreation centers house a variety of attractions such as indoor and outdoor pools, state-of-the-art fitness centers, indoor and outdoor walking tracks, ballrooms, dance studios, hobby and craft rooms, computer lab, Stardust Theater, concert hall and library.

The R.H. Johnson Center is spread across 48 acres and includes six activity areas with 118,000 square feet of amenities under one roof. It is the largest activity center in Arizona. The Palm Ridge Center clubhouse has three pools including one outdoor and two indoor, plus a large fitness center, tennis courts, indoor walking track, ballroom and club rooms. The Beardsley Center features an Olympic-size indoor pool, fitness center, club and meeting rooms, mini-golf course, horseshoes, greenhouse and a park with shady picnic pavilions. A fourth clubhouse, the Kuentz Center includes an exercise room, outdoor pool, tennis courts, walking track, softball field, club and meeting rooms, woodworking shop and the Stardust Theatre.

The grounds of Sun City West are adorned with amenities that beckon for residents to come out and enjoy the Arizona sunshine. Numerous tennis, bocce ball, pickleball and shuffleboard courts are dotted throughout the community. Additionally, the community has a softball field, lawn bowling rinks, volleyball and basketball courts, walking trails, garden plots and dog parks.

Sun City West Homes & Real Estate

There are a wide variety of housing styles at Sun City West to match the preferences and budgets of almost any buyer. Throughout the 19-year construction of the community there were over 140 different models offered. Homebuyers can select from single-family homes or attached homes. The single-family homes range in size from 800 to over 4,600 square feet. Attached homes include a variety of ranch villas and apartment-style flats that range from about 760 to 1,880 square feet.

As expected, some of the homes in Sun City West that were built in the early years tend to show their age. More recently, however, many homes have been updated or remodeled with more modern floor plan layouts and desirable finishes. Buyers in the community are most attracted to the affordability of the homes. It is an ideal community for buyers who prefer price and location over new construction.

Sun City West Lifestyle

There are over 100 chartered clubs and interest groups represented in Sun City West. Regardless of your passion, you are likely to find other like-minded residents who share similar interests. In addition to the many clubs and interest groups, Sun City West hosts an exciting lineup of fun activities that include fitness classes, continuing education classes, parties and organized trips to area attractions.

The majority of the community is unincorporated and without schools. As a result, residents enjoy some of the lowest property taxes in the nation. Plus, a large volunteer organization in the community helps maintain the grounds, organize events, teach classes and staff community buildings. The incredible volunteerism in the community helps keep the yearly association fees to a reasonable low cost.

Area

Bought in March 2014 for seasonal use! Have been back 5 times since and absolutely live it! There is always something going on or to do even in the off season!
People are so friendly here! It really is was of the nicest things that we have ever done for ourselves. Groceries, restaurants, gas, rec centers, pharmacies, Starbucks, hospital are just a few blocks away!
June 22, 2014 11:01 AM by LouAnn C (Resident/Homeowner)5.0
We moved here from Wisconsin and are enjoying our new lives thoroughly! Everyone is so friendly and there are so many things to do. Walking, swimming and biking for starters. Free movies in the park (and soon at the pool, too) were a lot of fun last month. Over 100 clubs to try and think about joining.
April 26, 2013 6:26 PM by Susan L. (Resident/Homeowner)5.0
I moved in to Sun City West in 1995 after my kids encouraged me to downsize from our large family home. My husband had passed a few years prior and it was a difficult decision. Looking back it was the best decision for me and I am very happy with the friendships I've made here. I've had so many opportunities to travel and experience things I never dreamed of. I love the craft clubs and have even started making some money selling my pieces. I feel like part of a family here and that has meant the world to me.
