There are five Shea Homes communities in Arizona, including four gated Trilogy communities. Some homes in the Trilogy communities come equipped with solar power, and Shea Homes made a point of building extra-large clubhouses. Locations were found that allowed for the building of a private community with proximity to major highways and cities.
These Shea Homes communities in Arizona are for 55+ active adults, except for Trilogy at Verde River which has no age restriction. Also, all but Mountainbrook Village are gated communities.
