Estrella by Newland Communities, located in Goodyear, Ariz., was recently voted the number one master-planned community in Arizona by Ranking Arizona. This marks the fourth year in a row that Estrella has received this accolade.
Ranking Arizona is the outcome of the largest business opinion poll in Arizona. Each category is selected by the staff of Arizona Business Magazine for the general public to vote on and is based upon business and leisure activities of Arizona's business professionals. Thousands of individuals cast their vote each year during Ranking Arizona’s open call for the public’s opinion with more than 200 different categories open for public ranking.
“We feel honored to have been recognized by the readers of Arizona Business Magazine as the best master-planned community in Arizona four years in a row,” said Greg Bielli, president of the Western Region of Newland Communities. “It’s a testament to the quality of our home builders, the vast array of amenities we offer our residents, and our truly spectacular setting in the Sonoran Desert Valley.”
Estrella provides a one-of-a-kind lakeside mountain setting and resort-style amenities. Combining mountain beauty, 72 acres of lakes, and hundreds of acres of open space, it is no wonder that Estrella continues to be selected as Ranking Arizona’s “Best Master-Planned Community.” The Starpointe Residents Club, located on the shore of Estrella’s North Lake, offers residents and their guests over 24,000 square feet of activity. In addition, residents can take advantage of community events hosted at Estrella’s Lakeside Amphitheater, Yacht Club, and Star Tower.
The Golf Club of Estrella offers a spectacular Nicklaus-designed, 18-hole, par 72 golf course, which covers a vast 7,102 yards and plays host to some of the Valley’s most prominent golfers. In addition to the award-winning golf course, the Estrella community boasts multiple trails throughout Estrella that are suitable for walking, jogging, biking, or hiking and paved walking paths that wind around the lakes, allowing for an easy three-mile waterfront stroll. The community also includes multiple parks that are fully equipped with recreational fields, barbeques, and picnic areas, making neighborhood gatherings a common occurrence.
Estrella appeals to a wide variety of buyers with its diverse selection of builders, offering multiple floor plan and pricing options, starting in the high $100,000s. Also appealing to prospective buyers are the community services offered at Estrella, including two elementary schools that provide kindergarten through eighth grade education and Estrella Foothills High School. Also just a few miles away, are Estrella Mountain Community College and two major healthcare facilities.
In 2008, Newland Communities purchased 3,000 additional acres for the expansion of the Estrella community and broke ground on Mountain Ranch Marketplace, Estrella’s first major retail center. The Shoppes at Market Ranch by the Bade Companies will also add 42,000 square feet and five new buildings of commercial office space to the area. Both new shopping centers will bring more convenient shopping choices to residents, further enhancing the quality of life at Estrella.
