Reason to Live Here: So Close, Yet So Far

Hit the road, Jack. If wide-open space is key and bumper-to-bumper traffic cramps your style, the private refuge of Encanterra in the Southeast Valley is the perfect choice for you (and your convertible). The secluded community is positioned between the breathtaking Superstition Mountains and San Tan vistas with open air all around—yet it remains only a short jaunt from the I-60 and 202 freeways. New homes (ranging from the high-$100,000’s to the mid-$400,000’s) are Shea Green Certified, eco-friendly and energy-efficient; wide open floor plans, close attention to detail and customizable interiors make it easy to see why Trilogy by Shea Homes has such high customer satisfaction ratings. The centerpiece of the property, Encanterra’s 60,000-sq.-ft. La Casa Clubhouse, is designed by world-renowned architect Bing Hu. The resortlike atmosphere will hold the interest of the entire family, boasting three beautiful pools, four amazing restaurants, a signature Tom Lehman golf course, a full-service spa and fitness center, a special event space and courtyards for relaxing. 800.924.4581, www.encanterra.com. —C.P.
