What is Unique about The Gardens at Willow Creek?

Quiet Age Restricted and Gated Community situated just outside the scenic and historic town of Prescott AZ. Residents enjoy a quiet and low maintenance lifestyle among friends and neighbors that look after one another. Affordable homes with spacious and open floor plans make this one of the most appealing smaller communities in the Prescott area for active retirees. 

Life at the Gardens at Willow Creek, Prescott AZ

Situated 100 miles north of Phoenix and 6 miles outside the popular town of Prescott you will find the charming age restricted community called the Gardens at Willow Creek.  With only 105 homes this intimate neighborhood is the just the right size for the residents that live here. Around Arizona you can find plenty of huge active lifestyle communities for retirees. However not everyone wants to live in these overwhelming neighborhoods and if you one those folks you will like Willow Creek.

Here most residents know each other by name and form close friendships and have a tendency to look after one another. They are enjoying a maintenance free lifestyle in a more quiet and private setting. The neighborhood is also immediately adjacent to large commercial and retail area where you can find most of your necessities such as drug stores, banks and restaurants. 

A small 2000 square foot Clubhouse sits at the center of the community and serves as the social place for many of the neighborhood events and holiday parties. Here you will find a small fitness center that will keep you from purchasing a membership outside the community.  The social room is the perfect place to hold small events, card games and group lifestyle meetings. A serving kitchen is also available to warm appetizers, mix cocktails and host functions. 

Outdoors there is a pool that is large enough to accommodate the residents. And on many days is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon relaxing with close friends. 

The Gardens at Willow Creek Homes and Real Estate

The community was developed in early 2000 by the Malouff company and sold out in 2004. Currently homes periodically become available on a resale basis and tend to sell quickly. The homes range in size from 1100-1800 square feet and typically include 2-3 bedrooms and 2 baths and 2 car garages. You will find open floor plans with large family rooms and master bedrooms.  The majority of plans also offer large covered patios.  Resale homes are affordably priced from the mid to high $200's.

The Gardens at Willow Creek Area Attractions

Willow Creek is very close to the down town Prescott AZ which features fabulous historic streets that are reminiscent of western life in the 1800's. You will find great restaurants, boutiques, galleries, bakeries and coffee shops.  The Courthouse Square is among the many historic landmarks and sits at the center of Prescott. 

Residents that are seeking more shopping, entertainment and nightlife will often venture into Phoenix which is approximately an hour and 30 minutes from Willow Creek. 

Industry Expert Review

Ideal community for retirees seeking a quieter more laid back lifestyle as compared to your larger active retirement communities found throughout Arizona. Prescott is a charming historic community which many of the residents enjoy a laid back lifestyle with daily trips to down for shopping, dining or a good cup of coffee.

With only 105 homes most residents know each other and form close bonds and friendships. The homes are situated on very small lots and many of the home owners have create d small courtyard patios with gas grills, fireplace s and fire pits. 

The pool is centrally located making it easy for all residents to get there with just a short walk. An oversized sidewalk runs through most of the community on one side of the street encouraging residents to get out of the home and engage with others.

While the community does not offer much in the form of amenities. Residents stay busy outside the community with day trips and inside the community with small neighborhood events, pot luck dinners, card games and volunteer efforts.
