Even people who are not avid golfers are familiar with PGA WEST in La Quinta as the home of the Humana Challenge golf tournament.
They have also most likely read stories about the numerous politicians and celebrities who have played its six world-class courses designed by golf luminaries such as Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf, and Pete Dye.
The 2,200-acre country club community is also comprised of more than 5,000 homes. The final new home development, Signature at PGA WEST, recently broke ground on 230 residences in three distinct neighborhoods.
The largest of the one-and two-story detached homes, The Estates have been designed in four floor plans that range from 2,528 square feet to 3,479 square feet.
"The designs take their lead from the rich Spanish heritage of Southern California and reflect the soothing earth tones of the desert. Indoor spaces are light, open and airy, exuding both comfort and luxury,” says Robert Thorne, principal of California West Communities. “In keeping with the Mediterranean ethos, living spaces extend outdoors with spacious private courtyards, balconies, and patios, and with select lots, room for a pool. Inside and out, these homes are gracious, elegant, and tasteful.”
The three neighborhoods will be comprised of The Villas, 100 one- and two-story attached condominiums ranging in size from 1,446 square feet (2 bedrooms, 2 baths) to 2,295 square feet (3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths); The Haciendas, 66 one- and two-story detached homes from 1,941 square feet (2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths) to 2,429 square feet (3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths); and The Estates, 64 one and two-story detached homes from 2,528 square feet (2 bedrooms, plus casita, and 3.5 baths) to 3,479 square feet (4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths).
The Haciendas feature four floor plans from 1,941 square feet to 2,429 square feet.
Thorne says he believes a wide range of buyers will be attracted to the community.
"There are thousands of acres of surrounding desert and mountain wilderness —prime for hiking and mountain biking enthusiasts — just outside your door. It’s about lifestyle rather than a profile. Signature at PGA WEST is for anyone looking to upgrade their country club lifestyle."
The Villas are attached condominiums. There will be four floor plans ranging from 1,446 square feet to 2,295 square feet.
The new development will also have a private clubhouse, The Signature Club, that will feature a fitness center, a swimming pool, whirlpool spa, an outdoor barbecue area with a large patio space, a kitchen/banquet area for private events, and numerous other recreational activities.
"Signature has the unique distinction of being the final new home development at PGA WEST, and it is the crown jewel,” says Thorne.
