Very Established 55+ Community of Dreamland Villa is Outside of Phoenix in Southern Arizona and Has Single Story, Single Family Homes

Located in Mesa, outside of Phoenix in southern Arizona, Dreamland Villa is a large, established 55+ community with more than 2,700 single family homes neatly placed across 200 acres.   The community was built from 1959 until the early-1970s, well before the concept of "master planned development" had taken hold, and it has 18 different sections.

 

 

A quiet, modest community, Dreamland's homes are all single story, with approximately 900 square feet to 2,200 square feet, two to three bedrooms and one to two baths.  Residences sit close to one another, and they all look somewhat alike.  Some homes have been updated, but many have not.   Dwellings have either an attached carport or a single car garage.  Streets have sidewalks, and all yards have landscaping that consists of a few bushes, maybe a palm tree, perhaps a wild looking cactus and lots of small rocks.  Some homeowners have painted their rocks green to simulate a lawn.   Home prices start in the low to mid-$100,000 and top out at around $200,000.  Check with a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change.  Owners also have to pay for Rural Metro Fire Protection.

 

Dreamland Villa does not have the bells and whistles of newer 55+ neighborhoods, and the community was originally established without even an HOA.  After a lengthy legal battle in the 2000s, it still does not have an HOA.  It does, though, have the Dreamland Villa Community Club (DVCC).   Joining the DVCC is voluntary but is required if a homeowner wants to have access to the community's amenities.     These include two clubhouses, which between them have three swimming pools, hot tubs, a ceramics studio, an arts and crafts room, a cards room, a computer room, a woodworking shop, a library, a community theater, an amphitheater and more.

Dues paying residents also enjoy a rich menu of activities, clubs and events that includes coffee socials, potluck dinners, sing-alongs, a book club, a singles club, a golf league, a water volleyball group, a walking group, a bowling league and many others.    Annual DVCC dues are in the $200 range, but please verify this with the community or a real estate agent as dues rates may change.    

Mesa is a sprawling suburb and is Arizona's third largest city.   It was settled by Mormon pioneers in the late-1800s, and thanks to an expansive canal system was an agricultural center for many years.  Today, Mesa is primarily residential but home to ASU's Polytechnic Campus, the expansive Mesa Arts Center, the Arizona Museum of Natural History and the Mesa Historical Museum.  Forty golf courses within a half an hour drive.

Banner Desert Medical Center and Banner Gateway Medical Center are accredited by the Joint Commission.

Summer temperatures are in the 90s and low-100s, and winter temperatures are in the 40s, 50s and 60s.   On average, the area receives 7 inches of rain per year.
