Families of every style and lifestyle love to call Estrella home. Some have lived in Estrella since the very beginning, in the community of Mountain Ranch, and some are brand new, experiencing the beauty and excitement within Montecito and CantaMia. Residents experience Estrella in their own unique ways, inside three distinct communities rooted in the Sonoran Desert landscape of Goodyear, Arizona.

Mountain Ranch

Yes, it’s been 25 years since the first families moved into Estrella—and since that time, the community has grown even richer in relationships. In Mountain Ranch, neighborhoods offer exceptional homes with Spanish Colonial-, Ranch-, and Craftsman-style architecture for every size and style of family. Additions like the Starpointe Residents Club and Mountain Ranch Marketplace bring both socializing and convenience to your day-to-day.
