“We’re excited to see the community officially open. The large stone entry sign to the community is done, and has blue glass feature that lights up a night. We’re very pleased with the progress and how it’s all coming together,” developer Mike Fann said.
The Dells, an 1,100-acre new home community offers panoramic views of Granite Dells, Granite Mountain and other surrounding mountains. The community’s first phase presents 208 residential units and features more than 250 acres of open space that will have walking trails that link directly to Prescott’s popular Peavine Trail and more than 450 miles of public hiking trails. New home prices average in the high 200’s and several homes have already sold.
Home designs range from garden homes, to larger lots with easy living floor plans, to custom homes on estate parcels.
