Province Overview

Province by Meritage Homes in Maricopa, AZ is one of the most beautiful 55+ retirement communities in the entire Greater Phoenix area! With nearly 50 acres of lakes, over 125 acres of landscaped parks and open space, and over 30 percent of the master plan dedicated to open space, driving through Province is visually stunning and refreshing. It’s a true oasis in the desert, and the reaction we get from most people that see it for the first time is “WOW”.

With the acres of lakes and water canals meandering throughout the community, you can find homes with “waterfront” back yards. These lots are in high demand though, and will generally carry a premium of about $50,000 – $80,000 more than regular lots.

Walking and biking trails wind throughout the entire community with an abundance of amenities that support healthful activities both indoors and out. The extravagant 32,000 square foot clubhouse is styled after an Italian Villa and contains state-of-the art facilities with beautiful Tuscan old-world charm.

Engle Homes was the original developer and completed about 895 of the 2,200 available homesites at Province in Maricopa before filing for bankruptcy in January 2008. In October 2009, Meritage Homes purchased the remaining 1,300 undeveloped lots out of foreclosure and will complete the community with a new set of floorplans. Meritage offers floor plans designed for energy efficiency and today’s lifestyles.

Province Real Estate

Engle Homes built 15 floorplans. They offered 4 “Villa” style homes, which are townhomes attached in groups of two, and 11 different models of detached homes.

When Meritage Homes took over the community, they introduced new floorplans for single family homes and are using the same 4 “villa” plans that were offered by Engle Homes. The new Meritage homes now come standard with about $50,000 worth of super energy-efficient and “green” features, with an optional solar system available to help reduce your utility bills even more.

Base prices do not include lot premiums, upgrades, design center options, etc. On average, most people will spend an additional 12% – 20% over “base price” for design options and lot premiums for their new home. Lot premiums for a waterfront lot will average about $50,000 – $80,000.

If you don’t want to wait for a new home, there are resales available that are just a few years old, and you can find resales of the floor plans designed by Engle that are no longer offered as new construction.

Province Golf

The Duke at Rancho El Dorado is a championship style, Par-72, 18-hole, daily-fee golf club located in the master planned community of Rancho el Dorado, just across the street, to the north of Province. The ranch-style clubhouse features a well-appointed golf shop, and The Silver Spur Grill is open to the general public, so you can sit down for some breakfast or lunch, even if you’re not a golfer.

Because the golf club is just across the street, many regular golfers that live at Province use their own private golf cart instead of a club cart.
