Reason to Live Here: Playtime

Whether it’s playing a round on the signature Jim Engh-designed golf course, a high-energy tennis match or a Lake Pleasant excursion, there is plenty to do for the entire family in Peoria’s beautiful Blackstone at Vistancia—an elite, private country club community spanning 590 acres just off Happy Valley Road and Lake Pleasant Parkway. Honoring what families cherish most—good times, good friends and the good life—Blackstone offers plenty of fun outlets for r-and-r. The Mediterranean-inspired Hacienda clubhouse at Blackstone Country Club is the hot spot, featuring fitness areas, resort-style pools with cabanas, children’s play areas and tennis facilities. Fancy dining rooms, indoor/outdoor spaces, courtyards for lounging, bars and wine-tasting rooms make the clubhouse the hub for all things social and are the perfect backdrop for special events. Luxury homes, villas and homesites, ranging from one-half to one-acre lots, are all available in this warm and friendly community, beginning in the $200,000’s for homes and $100,000’s for homesites. 623.476.2923, www.blackstonecountryclub.com.—C.P.
