Estrella by Newland Communities will open Phase One of Lucero with neighborhoods from five distinct homebuilders: Beazer Homes, D.R. Horton, Pulte Homes, Richmond American Homes, and Taylor Morrison. The 617-acre village has been carefully designed with intimate neighborhoods that embody modern, desert living with panoramic views of the Sierra Estrella Mountains.

“As the managing developer of Estrella, we strive to bring innovate design and high-quality homes into the community,” said William Olson, Senior Vice President and Division Manager for Newland Communities. “We are proud to bring well-respected homebuilders into Lucero and provide potential residents with a variety of new home options to fit any lifestyle.”

True to its name “bright star,” the village has been designed to embody the art of hillside living and perfectly complement the beauty of its natural desert surroundings. Planned amenities include a café operated by Huyer Club Concepts, LLC – the operator of Lakeside Grill, a hike and bicycle shop operated by Trek Bicycle Store West Phoenix, and more than 10 miles additional of hiking and biking trails. 

Slated to open in spring 2019, Lucero is the first new area of the Goodyear master-planned community to debut in nearly a decade. Estrella features three other villages, Montecito and Mountain Ranch as well as CantaMia, a gated 55+ community, and offers distinctive floor plans and a wide range of price points from nearly a dozen homebuilders.
