Arizona Traditions Homes for Sale

Arizona Traditions is the preferred 55 plus Active Adult Retirement Community for those retirees wanting a gated smaller more intimate community.  It has a small-town feel that is very different from the big popular retirement communities. Arizona Traditions sits on 718 acres and is located on Bell Road in Surprise, Arizona. The community was started by Continental Homes and completed by DR Horton with a total of 1,895 single-family homes. The focal point of the community is the 18-hole Tom Nash golf course.  It’s the first thing you see as you come through the main entrance gate and its landscape meanders throughout the entire community.  The active adult lifestyle, wonderful amenities, affordable homes and feeling of community make Arizona Traditions a choice worth considering to call home in your retirement years.  The community is age-restricted with at least one person on the title being 55 or older.  The price point for homes is considered average.  Arizona Traditions Homes for Sale are affordable with real estate appreciating.

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.

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.
