Established Low Key 55+ Community in Green Valley, Arizona Has Affordable Town Homes and Endless Amenities
About 40 miles north of the U.S./Mexico border and about 25 miles south of downtown Tucson in southern Arizona, Green Valley is an unincorporated community that is very popular with retirees. In fact, nearly everyone who lives here is age 45 or better, with a large majority of residents age 65 or better. Many 55+ communities are here. One of these is Casa Paloma, a modest, established development with town homes for sale.
Casa Paloma was built in the late-1970s, and it is actually comprised of two HOA communities, Casa Paloma I and Casa Paloma II. They sit across La Canada Drive from one another but are essentially one development. Casa Paloma I has 256 homes, and Casa Paloma II has 383 homes. All of the residences are single story. Exterior modifications have been made over the years, so homes are similar but not exact. Most have a sandstone stucco facade, but some have painted brick. Some homes have a short retaining wall in front while others have wrought iron gates. One dwelling may have a carport supported by red bricks, while another home's carport may be supported by poles. Another residence may only have a short driveway. Windows may be rectangular or arched.
Interiors range from very simple to upgraded with tile floors, stainless steel appliances, marble coutertops and a large fireplace. Most homes have living space between 1,000 and 1,500 square feet, with two bedrooms and two baths. Landscaping is comprised of rocks, cacti and small bushes. Prices start below $100,000. Please check with a Realtor to verify this price as it may change.
One of the reasons that people enjoy living here is Green Valley Recreation (GVR). This organization manages the extensive amenities for Green Valley's 55+ communities. When Casa Paloma homeowners pay GVR's membership fee, they then have access to its 13 recreation centers located throughout Green Valley. They also enjoy dozens of clubs, hobby shops, classes, trips, concerts and volunteer groups. Nearly everyone who lives in Green Valley (and everyone who lives in Casa Paloma) is a member of GVR, which creates a sense of community between 55+ developments. The initial GRV membership fee is $2,296, and the annual household fee is $475. Other fees may apply as well. Within Casa Paloma itself, residents enjoy a clubhouse, a swimming pool and a spa.
Green Valley Hospital opened in 2015 and has 50 beds. It is accredited by DNV-GL, a relatively new accreditation organization, and it accepts Medicare patients.
The surrounding landscape is pretty and very green indeed, with the jagged Santa Rita Mountains looming in the distance. Outside of town, nearby Madera Canyon is one of the top spots in the nation for bird watching. Patagonia Lake, Arivaca Lake and Pena Blanca Lake are small lakes within an hour's drive.
Summer temperatures reach the high-90s and sometimes low-100s, with winter temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s. On average, the area receives 14 inches of rain each year.
