“We have been seeing a trend of family members moving back home, so with this feature they have their own space. Several couples have bought here because their elderly parent or a family member wants to be closer or needs assistance while living with them. The Harmony homes provide the perfect solution as our floor plans provide privacy while still allowing family members to be close,” said Mary Corbett, William Ryan’s director of sales and marketing. “With a separate entrance, living area, kitchenette, and laundry room, it’s ideal!”

Each home features an automation hub for homeowners to control all their devices, a video doorbell, a thermostat control and two light switch controls. The Orion floor plan includes the additional convenience of a door to the front courtyard, creating a separate entrance for home-based businesses.

William Ryan is also offering oversized sliding doors, expansive kitchens, smart-home technology, and exposed beam ceilings. Additionally, each floor plan in the Harmony collection includes space for an office or den, showcasing attention to the changing lifestyles of many home buyers for whom home is also their place of work. 

“Harvard Investments and our partners at Toll Brothers and Värde Partners are proud to partner with William Ryan Homes on the next neighborhood opening in Estrella,” said Tim Brislin, senior vice president of Harvard Investments. “Their innovative luxury homes are the perfect next addition to Montecito at Estrella. We believe William Ryan Homes’ product matches the quality and unique designs and layouts homebuyers seek in the West Valley today.”

Harmony at Montecito, offering views of the Sierra Estrella mountains, is the sixth neighborhood in Estrella in which William Ryan has built homes. William Ryan’s Harmony homes offer four popular single-level floor plans ranging from the 2,602 square-foot Vela model, with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms – to the Orion model with its 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, maximizing the use of its 3,036 square feet. The largest of the four is the Lyra model at 3,216 square feet, comprised of three bedrooms, with an option for a fourth, and 2.5 bathrooms. Priced from the mid-$650,000s. 

“What surrounds our Harmony neighborhood is just beautiful. The nature of it, and all the amenities offered within Estrella. The Estrella bubble is what I call it, everything you need is here. It’s so convenient and so beautiful and not far off the I-10,” Corbett added.

Located just 17 miles west of Phoenix, the Estrella master-planned community includes multiple Residents’ Clubs, resort-style pools and a waterpark, 72 acres of lakes, the Yacht Club of Estrella, the award-winning Nicklaus Design course at the Golf Club of Estrella, community welcome center Casa Lucero, and more than 40 signature and neighborhood parks.
