Province Overview

Province in Maricopa, Arizona was voted the best active adult community in the U.S. in 2006 by the National Association of Home Builders. One look at the community and it is easy to understand why. Province designated over 30 percent of the land as parks and open space, plus there are 50 acres of scenic lakes and waterways

Since construction of Province began in 2004, active adult homebuyers have been flocking to this quiet desert town south of Phoenix to take advantage of open space and reasonable prices. Province has delivered the right blend of world-class amenities, finely crafted homes and an exciting lifestyle.

Province Amenities

At the center of Province is a 32,000 square-foot clubhouse and resort-style outdoor pool that is surrounded on three sides by a scenic 50-acre lake. If not for the beautiful weather and Arizona sunshine, you might just forget you are in the middle of the desert. The clubhouse and amenity center boasts an indoor pool, ballroom, state-of-the-art fitness center, cafe, tennis courts, basketball court and outdoor amphitheater.

Province Homes & Real Estate

Home prices in Province are generally more affordable than in other active adult communities closer to Phoenix. Buyers in Province can choose from ranch-style single-family homes and attached villas. Floor plans range in size from 1,155 to over 2,800 square feet.

Despite the success of the community, the real estate downturn proved detrimental to the Maricopa real estate market and the developer of Province, Engle Homes. As a result, Engle Homes filed for bankruptcy in 2008 after completing approximately 800 of the community's 2,200 homes. In October 2009, Meritage Homes acquired Province and announced their plans for the completion of the development. Meritage Homes has introduced a new lineup of models and floor plans that are uniquely crafted around the tastes and preferences of active adult buyers. In addition to the new construction homes available through Meritage, there is also an assortment of pre-owned resale homes on the Province real estate market.

Province Lifestyle

A diverse mix of social and fitness activities provide the residents of Province the opportunity to lead a physically active and socially stimulating lifestyle. Several dozen clubs and interest groups that range from hiking and golf to ceramics and oil painting meet on a regular basis. Regardless of your passion, you are likely to find other like-minded residents in Province who share your interests.


Maricopa is located 38 miles south of downtown Phoenix. It is a quiet town surrounded by low desert and open spaces. This small town was nearly non-existent in the 2000 census before experiencing tremendous growth over the last decade. Starting around 2001, people were lured to Maricopa for low priced real estate and to escape the congestion of the Phoenix area. Now, the city is home to over 30,000 people.

There are several nearby attractions such as the Sonoran Desert National Park, the John Wayne Ranch and Harrah's Ak-Chin Casino. Maricopa is home to several big name stores like Wal-Mart and Ace Hardware. However, larger shopping trips require a short drive to nearby Chandler or Casa Grande 25 miles away
