About Us We are a 55+ Community Sunland Village East is the third of four 55+active adult communities built by the Farnsworth Companies of Mesa, AZ. Construction began in 1984 and it was completely built out in 2001. The Fair Housing Amendment of 1988 requires that the oldest occupant of at least eighty percent (80%) of residential units be at least fifty-five (55) years of age or older. A child of 18 or older may reside with their parent as a permanent resident. The Growing Years: Shortly after all the homes and condos were sold out, Farnsworth turned the community and golf course over to the homeowners and since that time it has been successfully self-managed by an annually elected Board of Directors and a full-time Manager. Within our community there are 1657 single family homes and 780 condos. Amenities Our village enjoys two separate pool complexes located at each end of the community. Both complexes house a fitness center, therapy spa and an outdoor heated swimming pool. At our North Complex there is also a separate lap pool for the avid swimmer. There are lighted professional tennis courts, bocce ball, pickleball and shuffleboard courts, horseshoe pits and a volleyball court. Located next to the North Pool Complex is the Auditorium with a large dance floor, full kitchen and plenty of space for our first class Concert Series performances. A softball field is located in the southeast corner of the community. The North Complex houses the Administration Offices as well as the Arts and Crafts, Ceramic, Lapidary, Billiards, Library, Computer Lab, Saguaro Meeting Room and Card Rooms. In the South Complex is the Mesa Verde meeting room, with kitchen and nearby barbecue, the Palo Verde building, completed in 2008, with two meeting rooms and a state of the art woodshop. A modern Fitness Center was added to the South Complex in 2013. The 18-hole Sunland Village East golf course, owned and operated by homeowners, is open to the public for all to enjoy. Golfers of all skill levels are invited. Its design was created to harmonize with the surrounding homes and condos with a view of the beautiful Superstition Mountains. Owners may purchase Golf Shares at the Golf Pro Shop. The restaurant, located next to the Pro Shop, provides a panoramic view of the golf course and its fountains and ponds. In addition to all of the above amenities, the Sunland Village East development features miles of wide, clean streets and sidewalks ideal for walking and bicycling in the community.
