CantaMia is designed to harmoniously blend into its beautiful natural surroundings.

CantaMia in Goodyear, Arizona, is a gated 55+ community that catches the eye of many Phoenix-bound active adults and retirees. Built by Joseph Carl Homes within the larger master-planned Estrella community, CantaMia will have 1,700 residences, including both attached and detached homes, upon completion.

What Residents Love about CantaMia

Though construction began in 2010 and continues today, homebuyers already feel at home in this environmentally friendly active adult community. Jay Otlewski, a northwest Phoenix RE/MAX real estate agent, understands the needs of active adults and frequently helps clients find homes for sale in CantaMia

“One response from my clients has been how much they love the idea of purchasing a home in a brand new area like CantaMia. It allows them to meet so many more people because it feels like a tight-knit community.”

CantaMia Energy-Efficient Homes 

Sustainable living is an important draw for many potential homebuyers, and CantaMia delivers with impressive features such as echo solar energy systems, which are standard on every home.

“After one visit, my clients have discovered the difference in energy efficiency,” Otlewski says. “CantaMia is years ahead of the competition.”

In fact, all of the residences in CantaMia follow the “Environments for Living Certified Green” program. Just a few of the energy-efficient and environmentally friendly features this program encompasses include internal moisture management, improved thermal systems, and fresh air ventilation. Energy-efficient lighting and appliances are also found throughout each home.

CantaMia Amenities

Yet, there is more to CantaMia than energy efficiency and green living. A 29,000-square-foot Village Center clubhouse serves as the central hub of activity in CantaMia. The clubhouse contains a wide variety of resort-style amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, a learning center, a demonstration kitchen, swimming pools, sports courts, and much more. CantaMia residents can also enjoy the amenities found within the larger Estrella community. This includes access to The Golf Club of Estrella, an 18-hole championship golf course which winds along the edges of the Sonoran Desert.

CantaMia is designed to harmoniously blend into its beautiful natural surroundings. As a northwest Phoenix active adult real estate professional, Otlewski is optimistic about CantaMia’s potential for success: “With the multiple lakes and mountain views, CantaMia will quickly become the go-to community for those looking for a fresh and unique community.”
