Sagewood

Right behind the brand new Musical Instrument Museum is a brand new housing development called Sagewood.  This is located way, way north in Phoenix.  It appears to be a combination of single family homes, two-story condominiums, and apartment-like condominiums all with similar architecture.

I like the style of these using rock and stucco together.

This is a tough time for a new housing development to be coming on the market.

very nice architecture

The rock does save it from looking plain and boxy. I like the first photo.

More houses for more people. Yes, the rock adds a nice touch.

I like squares and it is a lot of them here. Nice apartments.

I agree with Dave, but maybe these folks know something we don't. I've read that the Phoenix housing market is pretty depressed. This development looks very nice, though, and I agree about the stucco and rock (that's done a lot here - usually with our native limestone rock)...

And I like the mixed-use idea.

Hope it goes well!

Re your comment on Ocala: It seems some folks think they need to do something about Halloween even if they don't want to and they end up doing so little it would be better if they hadn't done anything at all.

Does that make any sense?

Both stucco and adobe remind me of the Southwest. And, yup, it's a tough real estate market right now!

LONG MESSAGE: I'm quite frustrated; cannot access my email account, comment on any blogs that don't allow anonymous visitors, nor access my Visual St. Paul blog. Lost all my addresses. Fortunately I had scheduled posts 'til mid-November sometime (but can't add to them with an explanation) because of surgery. Don't have time to start a new email account nor blog, but I'll be back. If you care to contact me in the meantime, I can be reached with another acct., tho: myhearthandhome@gmail.com (I hope that works!)Kate from Visual St. Paul.

I also like the materials very much. This seems to be a very nice neighborhood.
