The Villages of Estrella: Resort-Style Living in CantaMia by Taylor Morrison (55+)
Does moving to a refreshing oasis in the High Sonoran Desert sound like the reset you’ve been looking for? Estrella is a master-planned community comprised of three distinct villages: Mountain Ranch, Montecito, and CantaMia (an active adult 55-Plus village). Here you’ll find a combination of distinctive homes and exciting amenities, including 50+ miles of lakeside paths, desert and mountain trails for hiking and biking, 72 acres of lakes for sporting or relaxing, 40+ parks for family fun and community gatherings, plus, an 18-hole Nicklaus designed championship golf course.
When you’re ready to settle into a 55+ community that won’t require you to settle down, pick the gated village of CantaMia. Comprised of beautifully crafted homes on 540 acres and offering stunning private lake and desert views, CantaMia is an ideal gated community to retire. It boasts a resort-style residents club, parks and common areas, and most importantly, welcoming neighbors who will soon become fast friends. It’s no wonder CantaMia was voted one of the 50 Best Retirement Communities in the United States by Where to Retire magazine.
