Sunrise Point

Sunrise Point was developed by Engle Homes and consists of 174 homes. Some are patio homes, called The Villas, and the remainder are single family homes called The Estates.

The Villas had four different floor plans. Pricing began at $209,900 when they were introduced in February of 2000 for the 1,430 square foot Saguaro model and went as high as $232,990 for the largest patio home, the Acacia plan with 1,824 square feet.

The Estates at Sunrise Point offered four different detached single family home models ranging in size from 1,792 square feet to 2,704 square feet. Pricing began at $239,990 and went as high as $289,990 for the largest home. Each model was offered in two different exterior “elevations.”

This lovely neighborhood is unique in MMR in that there are no boundary walls or view fences separating the individual homes. Included in the homeowner”s association fees are such wonderful amenities as landscaping maintenance, use of the private recreational facilities such as the tennis courts, negative edge pool, spa and fitness room, as well as the security of being in a guard gated community.

Situated at one the highest points in MMR, Sunrise Point is a quiet desert oasis bounded by the mountain preserve to the east and Cimarron Hills to the west. To the north there is Cimarron Ridge and, to the south, the beautiful community of Sonoran Estates.

It offers wonderful accessibility via the adjacent trail system and marvelous mountain & city light views.

About the Builder

Engle Homes was a NASDAQ listed company that had been building homes for over 25 years. Although they were based in Boca Raton, Florida, they also had extensive home buildings in Georgia, Colorado, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina and Arizona. Engle Homes sold its first house in Arizona in 1997 and achieved award-winning success in addition to an outstanding reputation, excelling in home quality and customer satisfaction. They consistently placed in the top-five ranking in J. D. Power’s survey. Engle Homes was also recognized for its “outstanding reputation and excellence in home quality and customer satisfaction” by the American Subcontractors Association of Arizona which named Engle the “ASA ADVOCATE” Home Builder of the Year 2003.

As Engle Homes entered its second decade as a publicly-traded concern, the strength of its operations attracted a suitor. Technical Olympic S.A., a Greek construction company with operations in Greece, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Romania, was the interested party. A builder of major infrastructure projects, including highway, tunnels, airports, and marine and harbor works, Technical Olympic operated in the United States through Technical Olympic USA. The deal was completed in November 2000 when Technical Olympic USA purchased all of Engle Homes’ outstanding shares of common stock.
