Residents at Sun City Palm Desert, in California’s Coachella Valley, have everything they need from the breathtaking scenery to the three clubhouses with their many amenities.
This highly desirable active adult community was built by Del Webb and has 50 different models for almost 5,000 homes. Prices are dependent on the upgrades, floor plans, and whether the property is near the golf course. Homes range from one bedroom and one bathroom of 1,000 square feet to three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms with 3,300 square feet. Some have casitas and a golf cart garage but all of the floor plans give owners the freedom to create their own homes. Homes are also available for seasonal renting and leasing.
Many activities can be found at the Lake View Clubhouse, the Sunset View Clubhouse, and the Mountain View Clubhouse. Residents can walk the track or lift weights with the top-of-the-line exercise equipment. Or they can simply relax poolside and enjoy the tropical palms. There are a variety of restaurants as well as a library, ballroom, meeting rooms, billiards room, and auditorium. There is also a private RV lot for motor homes, trailers, boat, and campers.
Residents almost don’t need to leave the community but if they want to, there are theaters, restaurants, art galleries, and festivals close by. El Paseo Drive is the area’s version of Rodeo Drive and the Westfield Shopping Center has over 150 boutique stores. For the travelers, Bear Lake Ski Resorts is within a two hour drive as well as San Diego and Orange County beaches. And the Palm Springs International Airport is only about a half hour away.
The Mountain Vista Golf Club features 36 holes on two golf courses that were designed by Billy Casper. The club offers pay-as-you-play deals every day and preferred residential rates. It also has highly praised practice facilities with the driving range, putting courses, and pro shop.
