After the success of the first neighborhood, Robson started developing the others –next came Cottonwood and then Palo Verde neighborhoods – these two areas have 3,809 homes collectively and share the same HOA (homeowners association). Palo Verde is a gated neighborhood and Cottonwood is non-gated and each neighborhood has its own private golf course and community center. The fourth and fifth neighborhoods are Ironwood and Oakwood – both gated and they share a common association named IronOaks. Both neighborhoods offer the newest collection of homes and golf courses that are open to the public.
The homes in Sun Lakes Arizona were built over a 30-year time period so you will find home styles and prices vary dramatically. Some buyers prefer older homes that have lower pricing while others prefer the homes that were constructed more recently that feature modern floor plans and desirable upgrades. There is a wide assortment of homes you can choose from including single-family homes and attached villas – ranging from 1,000 to 3,500 square feet.
Other than the manufactured homes -there are several dozen floor plans available. Many of these floor plans offer several different configurations which make the number of floor plan choices almost limitless. HOA fees vary by neighborhood and most are paid bi-annually. Homeowners that live in an attached Villa also enjoy additional exterior maintenance provided by the association and therefore pay an additional condo fee each month.
