Inside Real Estate and Construction: The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain open luxury model homes
The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain has opened two of three models as part of the rollout of its luxury home project, which feature a $220 million first phase of 91 single-family homes and 16 exclusive custom estate homesites.
The homes, which include access to the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, range in price from $1.5 million to $3.5 million. Custom estate home sites are also available from $750,000 to 1.8 million. When built out, the Residences will include 300 homes and 20 estate homesites.
The project is a collaboration between Arizona developers Cottonwood Properties and Greenbrier Southwest Corporation, with the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC as manager.
The Residences are being designed by Kevin B. Howard architects. Gary Stoddard and Associates is doing the landscape architecture. The general contractor is DM Residential Construction LLC.
All of the Residence will either border the golf course or have vistas of the Tortolita Mountains. A signature element of each home is a disappearing wall that, with a push of a button, can be replaced by a retractable glass window wall that erases the boundary between the inside and the Sonoran Desert outside.
Each luxury residence will come with Ritz-Carlton services that include concierge service, personalized home management, landscaping, housekeeping, valet, catering and room service from the resort, and access to golf, fitness, and tennis facilities. In addition, the Ritz-Carlton offers to check the owners home when they are out of town and arrange for management services.
