Sonoran Estates was developed by Shea Homes and consists of 94 homes built in 2 different phases.
In February of 2000, which is the date of the earliest builder price list that I have in my files, the pricing began at $459,000 for the 3107 square foot Paloma model and went as high as $526,500 for the largest model, the Saguaro. At present, prices begin around $800,000 to over $1,000,000 with the highest values going to those homes with the most attractive settings and views.
There were six different models offered ranging in size from 3,107 square feet to 4,019 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.
Phase I of this lovely gated community consists of 69 homes and is nestled in an oasis bounded by the Mountain Preserve to the east and the Sanctuary Golf Course to the west. To the north are the communities of Sienna Canyon and beyond that is Phase II of Sonoran Estates, with 25 additional home sites. The golf course and the Mountain Preserve continue to the south.
It offers wonderful accessibility via the adjacent trail system, marvelous mountain and city light views and large oversized lots ranging in size from 3/4 of an acre to over 3 acres.
