A recent increase in custom homesite interest has triggered the release of 15 new custom homesites within Blackstone at Vistancia in Peoria, a private, gated golf community within the Vistancia master plan.

Thirteen of the new custom homesites are located along the 12th, 13th and 14th holes of Blackstone’s award-winning, championship golf course designed by Jim Engh. The remaining two are adjacent to the 17th the hole and back the 1st hole as well as feature spectacular views of the Blackstone clubhouse, a 30,000-square-foot Spanish Colonial architectural style clubhouse.

Characterized by heavily vegetated washes, Saguaro forests, gently sloping flat lands and an abundance of desert wildlife, Vistancia includes a 900-acre preserve offering spectacular mountain and golf course views. Perched high above a golf fairway or tucked into a secluded desert background, Blackstone at Vistancia offers a diverse selection of custom homesites allowing homeowners the option of creating a luxurious home that is tailored to fit every aspect of their individual lifestyles.

“Blackstone at Vistancia offers a relaxed, yet elegant lifestyle in a beautiful Sonoran Desert setting,” said Mark Hammons, vice president/general manager of Vistancia. “With renewed consumer interest in custom land sales we are pleased to offer more opportunities for buyers to build a custom, dream home in our vibrant community.”

Blackstone provides two custom homesite options: Natural Desert Homesites and Graded Homesites. Natural desert homesites are a minimum of three-quarter acre and are preserved in a natural desert state that encourages grade-adaptive architecture and enhances the natural topography. Each homesite has a defined building envelope to maximize open space between homes.

Graded homesites are a minimum of one-half acre and are developed as buildable pads. Shared walls lend privacy and capitalize on the maximum use of each homesite.

With several architectural styles permitted throughout the community, homeowners are able to select the architect and custom builder of their choice, providing flexibility to design unique indoor and outdoor spaces.

Design guidelines have been created to assist owners, architects and builders in designing residences and making improvements on existing custom homesites within the community. Matched textures, carefully chosen stone and meticulously crafted finishes have been incorporated into these guidelines to accommodate each owner’s unique desires without interrupting the flow of the community. These guidelines also ensure a sense of design continuity within Blackstone.

Blackstone welcomed its third custom home this spring with the groundbreaking of a three-quarter acre, approximately 10,000-square-foot desert contemporary-style home nestled along the 14th hole of Blackstone’s championship golf course.

Blackstone at Vistancia is a 590-acre community within the 7,100-acre master plan of Vistancia. Upon completion, Blackstone will include approximately 500 luxury and custom homes. Custom homesites in Blackstone start from the $90s.

Vistancia is located northwest of Lake Pleasant Parkway and Happy Valley Road in Peoria set amongst a stunning backdrop of mountain ranges and pristine desert surroundings. The master-planned community now has a second entrance and exit providing both north and south access. Take Loop 303 to the new Lone Mountain Parkway (exit 127). The Vistancia Information Center is located at the guard-gated entrance of Blackstone Country Club.
