Verrado Ranked Among Best Places to Retire in the U.S.

Victory at Verrado

When Maracay Homes first moved into the Verrado master-planned community in Buckeye back in 2014, we knew we were doing something special. Now, with three Verrado neighborhoods, including Victory at Verrado — our first-ever active-adult community — you could say we’ve made ourselves right at home in one of the nation’s top master-planned developments.

But don’t take our word for it. Where to Retire magazine just revealed its 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the United States, and Verrado made the short list. That’s right! This beautiful West Valley community tucked against the rolling foothills of the White Tank Mountains is getting the recognition it deserves as among the best places to retire in the U.S.

The top 50 selections won their place by offering an array of amenities beyond traditional golf courses and swimming pools, such as festivals, farmers markets, dog parks, walking trails, equestrian facilities and workplaces inside the community gates.

A few amenities that helped put Verrado on the esteemed list include its 66 existing and planned parks, hiking trails, an 18-hole golf course, swim park and grand lawn, fitness center, club house and a number of exclusive Verrado community events designed for residents ranging from the young to the “young at heart.” Not to mention, the development also features Arizona’s latest 55+ community, Victory at Verrado, which opened to the public earlier this year and features additional amenities, including exclusive access to The Victory Club — a planned community gathering complex that will feature a restaurant, fitness center, resort-style pool and much more.

At the center of it all, Maracay Homes debuted Maracay Homes’ Victory at Verrado featuring the Freedom Collection, an all-new assemblage of floor plans thoughtfully designed for active adult living. Four brand new, single-level floor plans, ranging in size from 2,284 to 2,624+ square feet, showcase Universal Design elements and feature FlexDesign® options that open up a world of possibilities for customizing each home.

In addition to our Victory neighborhood, here’s a closer look at our other award-winning communities located inside Verrado:

Verrado Tilden, the first of Maracay’s Heritage District neighborhoods, offers five distinct one- and two-story floor plans from the popular Insignia Collection, ranging from 2,063 to 3,769 square feet.
