Gehan Homes Closes On New Neighborhood In Goodyear Master-Planned Community

Estrella Continues Steady Growth, Welcoming another New Builder & Two Additional Model Homes

Newland is proud to announce that Gehan Homes has closed on 80 lots in a two-phase take down in Estrella. The builder is set to break ground on the “Palazzo” neighborhood in the Goodyear master-planned community before the end of the year, with a grand opening currently slated for February 2015.

The builder will offer five single-story floor plans ranging from 2,397 – 3,192 square-feet. A variety of plan upgrade options are available including: casitas, media/hobby rooms, additional bedrooms and extended covered patios. At its opening, the neighborhood will feature two model homes in the Montecito community of Estrella. 

“We are pleased to welcome Gehan Homes to our community,” said Bill Olson, Newland Senior Vice President and Division Manager. “The builder will bring a fresh perspective to our growing line-up of product offerings that allows us to offer homes to meet any buyer’s needs.”
