As if it’s not enough that the Chandler, Arizona, condos at The Cays at Ocotillo have a great location, terrific sunny climate, and a ton of amenities…they also feature floor plans to suit any lifestyle. From second home buyers who want a gathering place to empty-nesters who want convenience and low maintenance without sacrificing space or beautiful surroundings, this development offers unique living spaces for everyone, with upscale “trimmings” included. Two of the floor plans here are especially good buys in terms of sheer living space: the Bacara and the Riviera. Here are some of their high points:
Like to work from home? This residence presents a no-nonsense combination of luxury and practicality, with a den/home office located immediately off the entrance; you can even dress up the space with optional French doors, if you like. When it’s time to entertain, your chef’s kitchen, dining area and great room are mere steps from each other in an airy, open floor plan.
Tucked off on either side of this central “public” space are two bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bath and walk-in closet — perfect spots for overnight guests, adult kids “camping” for the night, or your own use for crafting, scrapbooking, sewing, or housing books or other collections. (Personal library, anyone?) Its generous dimensions (11 x 12) give you both plenty of room and an abundance of options.
But let’s face it: you don’t come to this lovely desert climate to stay indoors all the time, either — and that’s another wonderful aspect of the Bacara. Its balcony/patio functions as a welcoming “outdoor room” and expands your entertaining and living space even further. Need game space for the grandkids? A perfect spot to put that al fresco dining table, chairs, and umbrella? You’ve got it on this patio, and then some, with the ground-floor Bacara patio being a lavish 23 by 33 feet!
Like the Bacara, the Riviera floor plan also gives you a den/work area right off the entrance; unlike the Bacara, however, this unit’s “den” might be even better suited to a craft or sewing use, in that the residence’s laundry and storage center is immediately adjacent to it. (First, you get your scrapbooks done…then you clean up all the glue and glitter in a flash!) Overall, this floor plan is streamlined for maximum usable living space with minimal “rambling.” An eat-in kitchen is across from the den and second-bedroom area, segueing smoothly into the great room for terrific “flow” for parties or even just quiet evenings at home.
Speaking of quiet evenings at home — if you’re looking for a residence with a touch more privacy to your master suite, check out the “separate wing” feel the Riviera gives to the master bedroom, walk-in closet, and ensuite bath. Off the master bedroom is a bonus sitting area, enabling the “master suite” to live up to its name; it’s a perfect spot to get away for a few minutes, curl up on a loveseat with a cup of tea and a good book, and just enjoy the solitude.
Easy-Living Style at Your Own Pace
Of course, you don’t have to be any more alone than you want to be at The Cays. Meet your neighbors on leisurely strolls through the grounds, enjoy swimming and splash parties in the pool, or get your “steps” in at the workout rooms, and you’ll have as much company as you desire. Abundant sunshine, balmy evening breezes, and a wide choice of restaurants, art events, musical evenings, and golf and other recreation opportunities make The Cays an ideal spot for those who want to enjoy every moment.
And you can do all that enjoying with little or no stress: with your on-site professionals seeing to maintenance, upkeep, and preservation of the unique ambience The Cays offer, you’re free to be as active or as laid-back as you want to be without worrying about “house chores” getting in the way.
Time to Make Your Move?
One thing you don’t want to be too laid-back about, however, is taking advantage of these home offerings — the Bacara, for instance, lists only one first-floor residence remaining, and with that great patio as a fringe benefit, it’s sure to go fast. Fortunately, the staff at The Cays at Ocotillo will be more than happy to match you with your ideal floor plan…for a second home or vacation home you’ll want to live in forever.
