Small, Established 55+ Community of Verde Groves in Mesa, Arizona Has Attractive Patio Homes, Quiet Streets and a Clubhouse
Mesa is a sprawling Phoenix bedroom community and is to the southeast of that city's downtown in southern Arizona. It is also the site of Verde Groves, a gated 55+ patio home community that was constructed by Hughes Development from 1999 to 2004.
While many 55+ developments are large with dozens of neighborhoods, Verde Groves is much more intimate with just 210 homes. All residences are single story, and sizes range from approximately 1,200 square feet to 1,600 square feet with two to three bedrooms and two baths. Exteriors are light-colored stucco, and roofs are red ceramic tile. As these homes are duplexes, neighbors share a courtyard. Attached garages face the street, and yard landscaping is typical of Arizona, with rocks, small bushes and short trees. Streets are quiet and have sidewalks.
Prices start in the high-$100,000s, and HOA fees are around $235 per month. Please check with a Realtor or the development to verify these prices as they may change.
The community is fenced, and green gates adorn the front entrance. The grounds are nicely manicured, and many homes back to a greenbelt. The highlight of Verde Groves is the 10,000 square foot clubhouse. It has two heated outdoor swimming pools, one of which is a lap pool, a spa, an outdoor BBQ area, a library, a fitness center, a beautiful great room and areas for cards, crafts and meetings.

The Grand Canyon State was originally part of New Mexico. After the land was ceded to the U.S. in 1848, it became a separate territory. It did not enter the union until February 14, 1912. Copper was discovered in the area in 1848, and metals mining continues to be an important part of the economy. Cattle and tourism are two of the states other vital industries.
Although Arizona can be one of the hottest states in the union, air conditioning continues to bring more and more people to the urban areas. The Colorado Plateau spreads through Arizona from the north and is interspersed with remnants of the Rocky Mountains. The land flattens into desert near Phoenix. The Colorado River forms the state's western borders and snakes through the Grand Canyon.
Arizona is home to places with names like Nothing, a ghost town in western Arizona, and the Horspitality Resort.
The state is stubborn when it comes to time. It observes Mountain Standard Time on a year round basis.
