Navarro Groves | Phoenix

Navarro Groves is a gated, 54-home enclave just steps away from South Mountain Regional Park. The community, which just opened in the spring, is uniquely located on a former citrus grove, allowing homeowners to enjoy the perks of living in a new build (and being near entertainment and employment in Phoenix) while still experiencing rural charm. The area is home to countless recreational opportunities, a plus for active families, as the preserve is the largest municipally operated park in the United States (that means homeowners have access to 51 miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking for all skill levels). Plus, like many Maracay homes, those at Navarro Groves feature many sustainable, environmentally focused elements. Six single-story floorplans, ranging in size from 2,400 to 3,300 square feet, are available and will provide plenty of room to accommodate a wide variety of living situations. Homes prices start at $400,000. maracayhomes.com.

New Name, Who Dis?

After nearly three decades of providing carefully crafted, premium homes and communities throughout the Valley, Maracay Homes has unveiled a rebranding and a new logo, which was inspired by Arizona’s desert landscape. As part of its rebranding, the company has shortened its name to, simply, Maracay.
