The Preserve was developed by Shea Homes and consists of 231 homes. In July of 1997, which is the date of the earliest builder price list that I have in my files, the pricing began at $141,150 for the 1,222 square foot Sontera model. At present, prices range from $200,000 to $300,000 with the highest values, of course, going to those homes with the most attractive settings and views.
There were six different models offered (with a total of ten floor plan variations) ranging in size from 1,222 square feet to 2,132 square feet. Each model was offered in three different exterior “elevations” and also had a number of customizable exterior options which gave the community a more varied and attractive look. All of the homes feature 2 car garages.
This community is located just south of the Desert Canyon Shopping Center and west of 105th Street. There are a number of cul-de-sac streets and about a third of the homes back to natural area open space with mountain views.
