Maracay debuts 2 new neighborhoods in Queen Creek


Maracay will celebrate the grand opening of two new neighborhoods on Saturday, Feb. 8 --- Pathfinder North and Pathfinder South. Both are in Spur Cross, a master-planned community in Queen Creek just northeast of Signal Butte and Ocotillo roads.

The grand opening event will include a neighborhood gathering noon-3 p.m. and features a catered lunch and refreshments, according to a release.

Prospective home shoppers are encouraged to attend the family-friendly event and explore the community with one of Maracay’s new home advisors to learn all about the neighborhood and its amenities, the release states.

Pathfinder North

Boasting the largest homesites --- up to one-third of an acre --- available at Spur Cross, Pathfinder North will offer 65 oversized homesites distributed throughout the neighborhood for added privacy and additional elbow room between homes, the release states.

The quiet, gated enclave will feature four all-single-story Flex Design floor plans, two of which will include detached RV garages as a standard offering, providing additional space for all of the outdoor toys that active, growing families enjoy --- or the ideal space for a specialized hobby.

"The homes at Pathfinder North will range from approximately 3,220 to 4,287 square feet and will feature carefully crafted living spaces with contemporary characteristics, open areas and a variety of structural options, including an executive kitchen, an extended master bedroom and an enhanced indoor-outdoor living enivornment, among many other choices," according to the release.

Pathfinder South

Meanwhile, Pathfinder South will offer the second-largest homesites available at Spur Cross, measuring up to more thn one-quarter of an acre at many of the 53 available sites.

"The neighborhood will feature four distinct, all-single-story Flex Design floor plans, with attached RV garages as an included offering in two plans, and plenty of indoor-outdoor space for all plans, allowing families to stretch out and play to their hearts’ content," the release states.

Ranging from approximately 2,695 to 3,679 square feet, the homes at Pathfinder South will also offer customizable options, including generation suites and casitas with separate entrances.

“When Arizona homebuyers choose a home at our Pathfinder neighborhoods at Spur Cross, they’re not only moving to one of the Valley’s most sought after regions, but also getting a beautifully designed, premium home that features some pretty special Flex Design options including a detached cabana and an RV garage option with a mini split AC unit,” Andy Warren, Maracay’s president, said in the release. “And, the benefits don’t end there. In fact, Spur Cross features a number of parks, a community pool, multiple walking trails and of course easy access to iconic Arizona destinations like San Tan Mountain Regional Park.”

The entire Spur Cross master-planned community offers a wide selection of modern amenities. Residents enjoy the playground where they can relax, barbecue and mingle with neighbors under the ramada; while active families and weekend warriors can explore the neighborhood via a multi-use trail system or challenge their neighbors to a friendly game of basketball or sand volleyball on the courts, the release states.

Residents can spread out a blanket for a picnic at the 7-acre park or cool off at the community pool and its 2,280-square-foot cabana.

The homes at Pathfinder North and Pathfinder South will be registered with the U.S. Green Building Council, a third-party rating system that verifies compliance across several areas addressing sustainability, with the goal of earning the LEED Certified designation.

Designed to use 30% to 50% less energy than typical homes, each home will meet the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS specifications and will feature water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star appliances, tankless water heaters, and Wi-Fi-enabled, programmable thermostats. Homes will also be Energy Star certified and feature the latest in smart home technology and Maracay’s proprietary LivingSmart®program for maximum performance and cost efficiency.
