Terravita currently consists of 830 acres designed for a diverse population of full- and part-time residents of all ages. The gated community features a wide range of home and lot sizes, offering a variety of exterior designs and interior options. Homes are arranged in residential neighborhood enclaves, and nearly every homesite is planned to backup to the golf course or natural open space. Terravita offers a casual indoor / outdoor lifestyle and a comprehensive amenity program, including championship golf, clubhouse facilities, Health / Fitness Center, Swim and Tennis Center and a community-wide system of walking and jogging trails. In addition to the features found within the community, Terravita is conveniently located only minutes from shopping, dining and other attractions.
To preserve, protect and enhance the natural beauty of the high Sonoran Desert, Terravita's architectural planning, site selection and construction techniques are designed to minimize the visual impact of structures while maximizing harmony with the environment. Every aspect of the development, from landscaping to golf course irrigation, meets or exceeds Scottsdale's Environmentally Sensitive Land Ordinance (ESLO). Incorporating low-pitched, non-reflective flat tile roofs and utilizing materials, colors and forms with the natural desert, Terravita's single-story design goes beyond the guidelines of the ESLO.
More than simply a collection of facilities and features, Terravita's amenity program is an integral part of the community's unique lifestyle, from the invigoration of excercise and healthful activity to the enjoyment of casual and fine dining. Experiencing the amenity program is available to all Terravita residents by way of a membership in Club Terravita. A social membership is included at no charge with the purchase of a home at Terravita. Residents can also acquire a golf membership in Club Terravita providing the opportunity for year-round or seasonal play on the 18-hole championship golf course.
Terravita's elegant 35,000 square foot clubhouse for indoor and outdoor enjoyment, with a layout that complements the surrounding terrain to maximize sunset views from outdoor terraces. To enhance recreational activities, the exclusive clubhouse facilities will include private men's and women's locker rooms. Two dining rooms offer service and cuisine in a casually elegant environment. The indoor / outdoor lounge is a perfect meeting place for friends and neighbors.
Terravita's 18-hole championship course, designed by the highly regarded golf course architects Casper / Nash & Associates, integrates the natural landscape and offers a challenging golf experience.

SWIM AND TENNIS CENTER

The entire community is integrated by a six mile system of walking / jogging trails, linking all neighborhoods and social areas, including the clubhouse.
Every homeowner in the community is a member of the Terravita Community Association.
