The Retreat at Arizona Traditions

Continental Homes originally planned for 1,772 homes to be built in the community. In 2,000 DR Horton took over and the market boomed. The housing bull in the mid 2,000’s saw sales so good that DR Horton bought a small parcel of land to the west of the community to incorporate it into the Arizona Traditions subdivision. A

This addition is called The Retreat at Arizona Traditions. The homes are newer with the last ones being built in 2013. The Retreat has its own gated entrance that is guarded and separate from the original Arizona Traditions. For the convenience of the residents, the Retreat also has its own small clubhouse and pool.

A canal separates the Retreat from the main community. So, a small footbridge was constructed across the canal, leading to the main community, so Retreat residents can ride a golf cart or walk across the bridge to enjoy all of the main clubhouse has to offer or play a round of golf.

Buyer Tip: How do you determine the property line of a home?
The answer is easy if there is a boundary wall but when there isn’t, look for where the gravel rock changes color. In Arizona, you are not required to have a surveyor to determine boundary lines when you are purchasing a home.
