Encanterra®, a Trilogy® Resort Community Overview

Encanterra® in Queen Creek, Arizona is a 55+ neighborhood located within the master-planned community of Encanterra® Country Club. Encanterra® began as an age-targeted community with no age-restriction that targeted active adults and Baby Boomers. In 2011, Shea Homes introduced Encanterra®, the 55+ age-restricted enclave within Encanterra®.

Encanterra® is located east of the beautiful San Tan Mountains and just 45 miles southeast of Phoenix. The community appropriately calls itself "city-close but country-quiet." The description is fitting based on the rural location in close proximity to the 202 loop and the Superstition Freeway (60) making a drive into Phoenix and other nearby suburbs like Mesa, Chandler, and Gilbert easily manageable. Also, the new Interstate 24 makes reaching the community and other destinations even easier.

Update: This community now offers Virtual Livestream Events. These events include cooking classes, wine and spirits demos, fitness and wellness events, and much more. Prospective residents can even tour Encanterra® virtually if they're not able to travel to tour it physically.

Encanterra®, a Trilogy® Resort Community Reviews (5)

Date (Recent first)
When first entering the gates of Encanterra, my husband and I were transported into an oasis in the desert. The drive to "La Casa" (which we found out means the clubhouse) is a treat as you wind through a beautifully manicured golf course. Neighbors wave at one another in this enchanting neighborhood where I would love to live. Lunch at the Bistro was delightful as we sat on the outside terrace overlooking the Supersttition Mountains and I believe the18th Hole. A truly spectacular afternoon! We will be back to tour the models next week.
We were out to visit the community and were very impressed with the setup and quality of materials used in the clubhouse. It is like living in a resort with all of the features they offer. There are private 'hangout' rooms in each of the men's and women's lockers where you can socialize and enjoy luxury sofas with TVs and pool tables. It's not free certainly but from what we have seen all over the area, this is an incredible place. If you are a golfer you will absolutely love the course. Immaculately maintained and the service everywhere we went was some of the best we have seen. This place deserves a visit.
This is one of the nicest communities in The Valley with an unbelievable clubhouse for the homeowners and an incredible golf course. The homes are gorgeous and the location is really great. Lots of close shopping and not too far from two freeways to get you anywhere you need to go. Definitely geared for active adults with the features and available activities provided.
This community is NOT restricted to just active adult. Family AND 55+ are combined.
My friend just moved in to Trilogy at Encanterra a couple months ago and she just loves it! I've been shopping for a new home in the area also and I hate to feel like a copy-cat but I'll probably be buying a home here too. The amenities are just amazing and there is so much to do. It's been nice having the opportunity to really experience the community through my friend before making a final decision. I'm looking forward to finding my dream home there this summer!
