Strong community sales and a recovering housing market has spurred the second phase of casitas now under construction at Sagewood, a Life Care Services community featuring resort-like amenities and health care services for senior living.
The detached casitas range from 2,173 to 2,326 SF for a two bedroom, den and two-and-a-half bath design offering a large patio with a fireplace and water feature in addition to extensive desert landscaping. The single-story casitas also feature a two-car garage and provide majestic mountainous terrain and pristine Sonoran Desert views located where north Phoenix meets Scottsdale.
“As a response to market demand and record sales at our Sagewood community, we’re building this second phase of 14 casitas, of which just four are remaining for sale,” said Stewart Ingram, the community’s executive director. Sagewood sold out of its original 24 casitas and the community is 83 percent reserved, with prices starting at $323,300 for residences featuring detached casitas and villas to lofts and apartment homes with a choice of 19 floorplans.
“Our new casita design offers double the patio space from our original plan including a fireplace and water feature in addition to enhanced desert landscaping in the backyard,” he said. “Offering spacious floorplans, generous standard features, and superior construction quality combined with our resort-style amenities and the Acacia Health Center make the casitas a great value for living at Sagewood,” said Ingram.
Construction completion for the casitas is planned for late summer. General contractor is The Weitz Company and Smith Group JJR served as the architect, both of Phoenix.
