Sahuarita Times: Richmond American Homes and Meritage Homes to Continue Growing Entrada Del Rio

Award-winning national homebuilder, Richmond American Homes, has closed on additional land in Entrada Del Rio, and plans to build an additional 87 new homes in Rancho Sahuarita’s newest neighborhood. Additionally, Meritage Homes, who built many of the first neighborhoods in Rancho Sahuarita, plans to construct 41 new homes adjacent to the homes currently being built by Richmond American Homes in the southernmost portion of Entrada Del Rio.

Richmond American will offer the same stunning floorplans currently being sold at their first lots in Entrada Del Rio, which offers models as part of their Seasons™ Collection. Their homes in Entrada Del Rio currently offer 3 to 6 bedrooms plan options, ranging from 1,810 to 2,630 square feet. This collection has already proved extremely popular in Entrada Del Rio, with only a limited number of lots remaining available in the current phase.

Meritage Homes plans to offer buyers five different floorplans to choose from, with square footages ranging from 1912 to 2920 square feet. The collection of floorplans includes both single story and two-story homes, and the plans offer 4 to 5 bedroom layouts. The homes in Entrada Del Rio are the builder’s first in the community since their last neighborhood of Encanto Del Lago, which they built back in 2004 and 2005.

Chief Operating Officer for Rancho Sahuarita, Jeremy Sharpe, commented: “We are happy that Richmond American Homes, who has been a great partner over the years and very successful in our community, will be building more homes in Entrada Del Rio. We are even more thrilled to bring another new builder to the neighborhood, with Meritage Homes. Over the years, both have been very successful in bringing quality new home product to families in Rancho Sahuarita, and we are excited to see that tradition continue.”
