Sahuarita Times: Freedom Homes Building in Rancho Resort

Homebuyers looking to purchase a home in the Rancho Resort community have a new option, as Freedom Homes, a D.R. Horton company, introduces their line of new single family homes for the 55+ market. Freedom Homes “offers low-maintenance active adult living at an attractive value, where you can find beautiful communities in desirable locations, with new homes that are designed for those 55 and over.” The company has been building in the community for the last two years, with their Express Homes brand. In early 2017, Freedom Homes started building in lots previously vacant within the community.

Freedom Homes at Rancho Resort currently offers 4 floor plan options, ranging from 792 to 1,388 square feet and priced from the low $100s. The floor plans feature options including 1 bedroom, 1 bath and 1.5 car garage units to 2 bedroom, 2 bath and 2 car garage units for owners. Each home is Energy Star certified and also comes with a builder warranty.

D.R. Horton has a long history of building within the Rancho Sahuarita master planned community, primarily in Rancho Sahuarita on the other side of the interstate. Estancia Del Corazon, which opened and sold quickly from 2012 to 2014, is the company’s most recent acquisition within that community. In late 2014, they purchased lots in Rancho Resort and debuted their Express Homes line, which also sold very well.

The award-winning Rancho Resort community offers a highly amenitized experience for active adults. It boasts a 20,000 square foot Clubhouse, which is complete with an event ballroom, library, fire-side lounge and nine-acre green. There are also many activity rooms, a fitness center, heated swimming pool and spa, and sport courts for volleyball, tennis and pickle ball. The community features a vast menu of events, programs and clubs for its residents, including Coffee Socials, Sock Hops, Lifestyle Enrichment Presentations and more. In 2017, over 150 such events are planned

J. Emery, Sales and Marketing Manager for D.R. Horton’s Tucson division, said of the project: “We are excited to unveil Freedom Homes in Rancho Resort. The homes’ floorplans and features are a great fit for this community and will provide an excellent choice to homebuyers looking for a home that exceeds their expectations while also delivering an exceptional value.”
