If you’re interested in moving to Scottsdale, AZ then Terravita is definitely an area you’ll want to see with The Matheson Team, your Scottsdale real estate experts.
The name “Terravita” is a combination of two Latin words: “terra”, meaning earth or land, and “vita” meaning life. Living in harmony with the land is what Terravita is all about. Developed between 1993 and 1998 by Del Webb, Terravita is an 823 acre, 24-hour guard-gated golf community with 23 neighborhoods and 1,380 residences in the greater Phoenix area. There are 7 miles of walking trails in the Terravita that link the various neighborhoods to the Clubhouse. If you want to take in the Sonoran Desert landscape, the Nature Trail is a two-mile loop within the trail system.
Terravita’s single-story homes range from 1,407 to 3,730 square feet. Most properties back to the golf course or to open space, and many homes for sale have gorgeous views of Black Mountain or Lone Mountain. The visual impact of the homes and other buildings are minimized due to the use of materials that harmonize with the natural desert surroundings.
