Maracay will celebrate the highly-anticipated grand opening of two new East Valley neighborhoods – Pathfinder North and Pathfinder South – both situated inside Spur Cross, a master-planned community located in Queen Creek, just northeast of Signal Butte and Ocotillo roads, on Saturday, Feb. 8. 

The grand opening event will include a neighborhood gathering from 12-3 p.m. and feature a catered lunch and refreshments. Prospective home shoppers are encouraged to attend the family-friendly event and explore the community with one of Maracay’s New Home Advisors to learn all about the neighborhood and its amenities. 

Boasting the largest homesites (up to one-third of an acre) available at Spur Cross, Pathfinder North will offer 65 oversized homesites comfortably distributed throughout the neighborhood for added privacy and additional elbow room between homes. The quiet, gated enclave will feature four all-single-story Flex Design®  floor plans, two of which will include detached RV garages as a standard offering, providing additional space for all of the outdoor toys that active, growing families enjoy—or the ideal space for a specialized hobby. The homes at Pathfinder North will range from approximately 3,220 to 4,287 square feet and will feature carefully crafted living spaces with contemporary characteristics, open areas and a variety of structural options, including an executive kitchen, an extended master bedroom and an enhanced indoor-outdoor living environment, among many other choices.

Meanwhile, Pathfinder South will offer the second-largest homesites available at Spur Cross, measuring up to over one-quarter of an acre at many of the 53 available sites. The neighborhood will feature four distinct, all-single-story Flex Design floor plans, with attached RV garages as an included offering in two plans, and plenty of indoor-outdoor space for all plans, allowing families to stretch out and play to their hearts’ content. Ranging from approximately 2,695 to 3,679 square feet, the homes at Pathfinder South will also offer customizable options, including generation suites and casitas with separate entrances.

“When Arizona homebuyers choose a home at our Pathfinder neighborhoods at Spur Cross, they’re not only moving to one of the Valley’s most sought after regions, but also getting a beautifully designed, premium home that features some pretty special Flex Design® options including a detached cabana and an RV garage option with a mini-split AC unit ,” Andy Warren, Maracay’s president, said. “And, the benefits don’t end there. In fact, Spur Cross features a number of parks, a community pool, multiple walking trails and of course easy access to iconic Arizona destinations like San Tan Mountain Regional Park.”

The entire Spur Cross master-planned community offers a wide selection of modern amenities that today’s homebuyers love. Residents enjoy the splendor-filled playground where they can relax, barbecue and mingle with neighbors under the ramada; while active families and weekend warriors can explore the neighborhood via a multi-use trail system or challenge their neighbors to a friendly game of basketball or sand volleyball on the courts. When the sun is shining, which is nearly every day in the beautiful Town of Queen Creek, residents can spread out a blanket for a relaxing picnic at the 7-acre park or cool off at the community pool and its 2,280-square-foot cabana. 

Residents flock to this region of the Valley for its multitude of shopping, dining and high-performing schools, all just a short drive from Spur Cross. The buzzing community is located in the heart of Queen Creek, where residents enjoy a convenient mix of city perks and rural comforts. Nearby iconic attractions include San Tan Mountain Regional Park, Schnepf Farms and the Queen Creek Olive Mill. The community is also within close proximity to major East Valley employment centers and popular amenities, including Seville Golf & Country Club, the Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center, Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre, movie theaters, parks, and much more. 

The homes at Pathfinder North and Pathfinder South will be registered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a third-party rating system that verifies compliance across several areas addressing sustainability, with the goal of earning the LEED® Certified designation. Designed to use 30–50 percent less energy than typical homes, each home will meet the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS specifications and will feature water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star® appliances, tankless water heaters, and Wi-Fi-enabled, programmable thermostats. Homes will also be Energy Star® certified and feature the latest in smart home technology and Maracay’s proprietary LivingSmart® program for maximum performance and cost efficiency.
