Developed by Pulte Homes between 1996 and 2000, Springfield is smaller than many active adult communities in Arizona, making it an ideal location for homebuyers who want to live in one of the more intimate active adult communities. Its 749 single-family homes appeal to active adults with diverse floor plans in a range of sizes. The spacious clubhouse and 18-hole golf course also keep residents busy with numerous social and recreational activities.



Set in Chandler, Springfield is located just 30 miles from Downtown Phoenix. Its prime location offers close proximity to a variety of attractions, including theaters, casinos, golf courses, and the Chandler Fashion Center Mall. Residents can also enjoy many on-site amenities, including the beautiful 18-hole, par 61 executive golf course which stretches across 4,231 yards and winds throughout the community to offer lush views from many homesites.


Pulte Homes began the development of the community in 1996 and the final homes were completed in 2000. During construction, Springfield’s 749 homes were built in over a dozen different floor plans ranging in size from 930 to over 2,300 square feet. Although these single-family homes are now complete, today’s homebuyers can choose from available resale homes in a variety of styles.

Springfield’s diverse, ranch-style homes include a minimum of two bedrooms and attached two-car garages. Many floor plans had the option of an additional den or third bedrooms and some homes have two-and-a-half or three-car garages. Most homes include two full bathrooms, though the smallest floor plan had just one bathroom and the largest offered three.


At the heart of the Springfield community, the spacious clubhouse provides many indoor and outdoor recreations. Residents can stay in shape with the fitness center’s cardiovascular and strength-training equipment or take part in a group fitness class.

Outdoors, amenities include swimming pools, tennis courts, bocce ball courts, horseshoe pits, shuffleboard, and half-court basketball. The clubhouse also has plenty of room for socializing, including a library, movie theater, and casual lounge area.

Residents can easily meet for a friendly game of cards or billiards, and the clubhouse is the perfect setting for community events, parties and club meetings. The arts and crafts studio provides resident artists with a creative outlet as well.

Social Scene

Not all active adult communities have Springfield’s busy social calendar, which offers many opportunities for activities such as potluck dinners, coffee klatches, pancake breakfasts, and much more.

Regularly scheduled games feature favorites such as bridge, poker, canasta, cribbage, bunco, Mexican train dominos, and MahJong. Special-interest groups and social clubs let residents share interests such as bowling, book discussion, volunteering, and gardening.

Active adults looking for a smaller, well-established community in the Phoenix area may find their ideal home in Springfield by Pulte Homes. Its exciting on-site amenities and close proximity to area attractions make Springfield a hot spot when it comes to active adult communities in Arizona.
