Just 30 minutes southeast of Phoenix, in Chandler, Arizona, Solera is a small Del Webb community with big active adult appeal. The community contains just 1,149 single-family homes, which is smaller than many of the active adult communities in the area, yet it features an impressive line-up of resort-style amenities, including a semi-private 18-hole golf course.
Amenities and Lifestyle
Solera’s varied amenities are mainly centered around the community’s beautifully appointed clubhouse. This spacious facility houses many hobby and game rooms, as well as plenty of space to mingle with neighbors and socialize with new friends. Arts and crafts studios support creative pursuits like ceramics, painting, and scrapbooking, while the computer lab and library make it easy to go online or curl up with a good book.
Health-minded residents can easily stay in shape with Solera’s outdoor recreations or in the state-of-the-art fitness center. The indoor fitness center features a range of cardiovascular and strength-training equipment, as well as a separate aerobics and dance studio.
Outdoor recreations are supported with several sports courts, including six tennis courts, two bocce courts, shuffleboard courts, and horseshoe pits. There are also well-maintained walking and biking trails, and two outdoor swimming pools.
As in other Del Webb communities, Solera is designed to support an active adult lifestyle with a variety of activities and special-interest clubs. These diverse groups cover a range of interests such as cards and table-top games, arts and crafts, performing arts, gardening, sports, genealogy, investments, and travel.
Resident golfers can enjoy a game or brush up their skills at the Lone Tree Golf Club. This semi-private club features an 18-hole golf course designed by Darryl Wilson with manicured greens and lush fairways. The club also offers practice facilities, a fully stocked golf pro shop, and The Grill at Lone Tree restaurant.
Single-family homes at Solera were built between 2001 and 2005 in a wide range of styles divided among three collections: the Holiday Series, the Tradition Series, and the Vista Series. Homes in the Holiday Series are the smallest in the community. They feature thoughtful floor plans with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, ranging from 1,151 to 1,352 square feet.
The Tradition Series was designed with larger homes (1,516 to 1,895 square feet). Each model offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as an additional den or third bedroom. Some floor plans were also built with larger garages to accommodate two cars and golf cart storage.
The largest homes in Solera are two models that were part of the Vista Series. The Sedona (2,184 square feet) has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a three-car garage, and a covered patio. The floor plan for the Picacho (2,421 square feet) contains two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and either a den or a third bedroom. It also has a separate family room, a covered patio, and a two-and-a-half-car garage.
With beautifully designed homes, resort-style amenities, and a great location, it’s easy to see why Solera continues to be popular with active adult retirees.
