Just 20 minutes from Phoenix, in the shadow of the Superstition Mountains, Leisure World is an appealing Arizona community designed to support an active adult lifestyle. The community features a spacious clubhouse with a wide range of indoor and outdoor amenities, as well as two 18-hole golf courses. There are also scenic lakes, a post office and an on-site wellness center.

Leisure World opened in 1972 and was completed in 1994. The development is made up of eight distinct districts, which each has its own community board, and now contains 2,624 homes. These diverse residences were constructed by three different builders to include condos, attached homes and single-family homes from 630 to 3,400 square feet. Homebuyers as young as age 45 are welcome, as long as 80 percent of the community is age 55 or better.

Leisure World's mature landscaping and long construction period have helped create a diverse retirement destination. There are over 40 floor plans within the community, available on a resale basis. Homebuyers will find many different styles of homes, and many have been upgraded by their owners to further distinguish their design appeal. Homes may have desert landscaping or traditional grass lawns.

In addition to its diverse homes and affordable HOA fees, Leisure World appeals to active adults with impressive resort-style amenities. The spacious clubhouse contains a state-of-the-art fitness center with an aerobics studio and a certified staff for personal training and group class instruction. Residents can also stay in shape with Leisure World's three outdoor swimming pools, as well as its sports courts for activities such as tennis, pickleball, basketball, bocce ball and shuffleboard.

Leisure World's hobby and game rooms offer plenty of space for socializing or trying out a new pastime. There are card rooms, a computer lab, a 15,000-book library and three ballrooms. For creative pursuits, community studios support ceramics, sewing, woodworking, and general arts and crafts. The grounds are also complete with walking and biking trails, and space for RV parking. While resident golfers can enjoy challenging, yet enjoyable play on two 18-hole golf courses.

At Leisure World, the motto is: Design your own lifestyle. This philosophy has helped the community develop with numerous social groups and special-interest clubs. These diverse groups cover a wide range of topics, such as billiards, dance, community theatre, arts and crafts, cards, politics, genealogy and performing arts. There is also a recreation department to help arrange group outings, and a travel agent for vacation planning.

With such a wide range of homes and amenities, as well as a prime Arizona location, it's easy to see why Leisure World appeals to many different active adult homebuyers.
