Terravita was developed in 1993 by Del Webb, the undisputed leader in active adult and lifestyle communities nationwide. A guard-gated, private golf and country club community situated in the far North Scottsdale area, Terravita is surrounded by the rugged panoramic beauty of the Sonoran Desert and dramatic mountains.
Although Terravita is NOT an age-restricted community, it offers many of the lifestyle features that make active adult 55+ communities so popular – a community centered around golf and social activities, were residents get together to play, dine, relax and even organize and support civic events together. The community is an extension of residents’ homes and is an integral part of the Terravita lifestyle.
For retirees looking for an active adult community in Scottsdale, it is the only Scottsdale lifestyle golf community that closely resembles luxury active adult communities in other parts of the Greater Phoenix area.
Terravita has garnered impressive 1st place rankings of the state’s top 10 private golf courses for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010 in Ranking Arizona — The Best of Arizona Business Magazine, and was selected as Best Arizona Private Golf Course 2009 by The Official Best of Arizona.
The name, Terravita, comes from the Latin words terra (land or earth) and vita (life), creating the harmony of land and life.
The heart of the Terravita community is the grand Clubhouse with its large picture windows and outdoor terraces that maximize the expansive and dramatic views of the natural desert terrain, lush fairways and fiery sunsets.
With 34,000 square feet, the Clubhouse has generous space for a long list of amenities including: fine and casual dining, a health and fitness center, Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis center with six lighted tennis courts, including a stadium-style court, the Desert Pavilion with 9,000 square feet of meeting/entertainment space, and a 6-mile system of jogging and walking trails that wind throughout the community.
This guard-gated 823 acre development has 1,380 homes and Terravita homes for sale range from 1,500 to 3,800 square feet, offering real estate options for those looking for anything from a small 2nd home to a grand luxury residence. Real estate in Terravita is designed so that most homeowners have a view of either the golf course or the impressive Boulders Mountain or Black Mountain. Homes for sale at Terravita range from the mid $300’s to just over $1M.
Homeowners at Terravita pay mandatory social dues to the Terravita Golf & Country Club through their HOA fees, so every resident is automatically a social member and enjoys all of the perks, privileges, amenities and social activities that come with any social membership to a great private club. Even if you’re not a golf enthusiast, all of the social activities, clubs and events provide a great way to meet neighbors and make friends.
Terravita’s championship golf course is a pleasure to play, boasting breathtaking views from every hole and some of the finest bent grass greens in the region. Designed by PGA Hall of Fame member Billy Casper and Greg Nash to capture the views of Black Mountain, The Boulders and other surrounding mountain ranges, it offers exhilarating rounds with five tee boxes, which accommodate any ability.
Capped at 325 members, a limited number of memberships are available for a one-time $20,000 initiation fee.
Resort lifestyle living means convenience and luxury. That’s what you’ll find at Terravita Golf and Country Club.
Terravita is located in the far North Scottsdale area, next to Carefree/Cave Creek. The area enjoys some of the most dramatic desert scenery on the planet. In fact, the 5-star world-renowned Boulders Resort chose this location to build their Resort and Spa, acclaimed for its awe-inspiring scenery and natural desert wellness programs.
As a world-class destination resort city with more spas per capita than any other city in the world, Scottsdale is commonly defined by its high quality of life. The real estate market in Scottsdale is among the most expensive in the United States, and Scottsdale is among the top ten markets in the nation for luxury home sales.
From its official incorporation in 1951 with a population of 2000, Scottsdale is now the state’s sixth-largest city and is loosely divided into four areas: South Scottsdale (the “original” Scottsdale area), Old Town (Downtown) Scottsdale, Central Scottsdale (also known as the “Shea Corridor”), and North Scottsdale.
North Scottsdale is the newest area, and where you’ll find most newer homes. This portion of the city also claims many of the most expensive homes in the country, with many exceeding $5 million in value.
Golf membership is capped at 325 members and is not tied to Terravita homeownership. Residents and non-residents are welcome to join the golf club.
Initiation fees vary, based on special incentives and market conditions, and are subject to change at any time.
