Wickenburg Ranch, an active lifestyle resort community in historic Wickenburg, Ariz. has announced that they have hand-picked two of the best semi-custom homebuilders for the Estate series of homes, creating a new neighborhood on the property.

 The master-planned community currently offers homes built by Shea Homes®, and will now also offer semi-customizable homes built by CSE & Associates and Mandalay Homes®. The new luxury builders will build 62 homes within a 55-acre parcel of the property, featuring larger more private lots that range from 10,000-45,000 square feet. Each builder will construct 31 homes, offering multiple structural and design options including recreational vehicle garages, in the new Outlaw neighborhood.

From the beginning of the planning and development stage, Wickenburg Ranch has offered homebuyers a unique and robust offering of amenities, including championship golf and a five-star resort club overlooking the golf course and serene desert terrain. Complementing their unique community offerings, Wickenburg Ranch answered the increased desire from buyers for more customizable homes and larger homesites with their Estate series, built by CSE & Associates and Mandalay Homes®.

“The addition of CSE & Associates and Mandalay Homes® to Wickenburg Ranch is exciting,” said Bill Brownlee, partner of M3 Companies, development partner in Wickenburg Ranch. “Both homebuilders bring their unique expertise to our community, and will offer future Wickenburg Ranch residents custom options to truly build the home of their dreams.”

Prescott-based Mandalay Homes® is known as one of the most innovative builders in America. They are committed to indoor air quality, water conservation and to building the most energy efficient homes in the country. Every home built at Wickenburg Ranch will be built at a 20 HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score or less as a standard feature, meaning energy costs will be incredibly low. Additionally, the new Interactive Floor Plans allow buyers to customize their home according to their lifestyle, with expanded great rooms, outdoor living, guest quarters, multi-generational suites, and a variety of garage options, including hobby and RV garages. Mandalay Homes® are beautiful inside and out, and are thoughtfully planned and designed to maximize indoor and outdoor space, to create usable and functional livability for the owner.

Mandalay Homes® will offer three unique home designs at Wickenburg Ranch with livable space ranging from 2,400 to 3,600 square feet. Construction on spec homes is expected to begin in October, and model homes are estimated to open in February 2018.

“We are excited for the opportunity to bring Mandalay Homes® to Wickenburg Ranch,” said Mandalay Homes® Owner and CEO Dave Everson. “We are passionate about our building practices but equally excited about the new home designs which are highly customizable and deliver homebuyers their perfect home in the heart of this amazing community.”

Scottsdale-based CSE & Associates build luxury semi-custom homes that showcase a natural, inviting flow, reflecting the homeowner’s unique personality, taste, and lifestyle. Hallmarks of CSE homes include stunning architecture, a dedication to craftsmanship, spacious, open floorplans, indoor-outdoor living spaces with oversized windows and an abundance of natural light, three and four car garage options, lots of functional storage, exterior detailing with metal accents, and homes whose overall design is in harmony with the surrounding landscape and community amenities.

Four CSE & Associates floor plans will be available at Wickenburg Ranch, ranging from 2,900-3,600 square feet as well as multiple detached guest house options ranging from 400-700 square feet. Construction on spec homes is expected to begin in November, and the model homes are estimated to open in May 2018.

“We’ve always loved designing and building luxury, semi-custom homes, and many of our first projects were built in master planned communities. We’ve wanted to return to our roots in this area,” said Scott Edmunds, president of CSE & Associates. “We were immediately impressed by the level of detail the developer poured into the infrastructure, amenities, and surrounding landscaping at Wickenburg Ranch. It’s a beautiful project and we’re elated to be a part of it.”
