Established 55+ Community of Victorian Estates in Central Arizona Has a Victorian Theme, Charming Single Family Homes and Mountain Views
Just east of Prescott in central Arizona's Bradshaw Mountains, Prescott Valley sits at 5,100 feet above sea level. It started out as an 1880s ranching community to raise beef for the miners who came to seek gold in Lynx Creek. Today it is a growing small city with a mature demographic. Part of this mature demographic lives in Victorian Estates, a cozy, established 55+ community of 178 charming, single family homes.
Built from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s, Victorian Estates is unique in that it has a Victorian theme. This means that home exteriors have decorative trim, dormers, bay windows and front porches. Interiors, however, are modern, with open floor plans. The seven models have from 1,020 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths to 1,935 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. Nearly all residences are single story and all have an attached two car garage that faces the street. Some dwellings have a back deck overlooking Rose Creek. Homes sit closely to another, and sidewalks are narrow. Landscaping consists of trees, bushes, rocks and native ground cover. The gated entrance sits along a busy street, but the community backs to bluffs covered in pine trees and scrub brush.
Prices start in the high-$200,000s. Please verify prices with a Realtor as they may change.
The clubhouse, once a ranch house, is the heart and soul of Victorian Estates. It has a long, covered front porch, vaulted wood ceilings, a fireplace, a fitness area and a Jacuzzi. Outside, a heated swimming pool awaits. A gazebo graces the community park, and mountain views are all around.
Victorian Estates' theme is in keeping the area's history. In its early days, next door neighbor Prescott brimmed with elegant architecture, including Greek Revival, Octagon and Queen Anne building styles, as newly minted millionaire miners built new homes. Today, more than 800 of Prescott's commercial buildings and residences are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The yearly Home and Garden Show is a town favorite. The nearby Prescott National Forest boasts hiking trails, camping areas and fishing streams.
Yavapai Regional Medical Center - East Campus in Prescott Valley is accredited by the Joint Commission. Prescott has a VA hospital.
