Dorn Homes and Fairfield Homes, two renowned Arizona home builders, opened 2012 with a joint venture on Solterra, a 256-lot active adult community in Green Valley.
The name of the joint venture community, Solterra, comes from the Spanish words sol (sun) and tierra (earth). It features four 1,400 to 1,991 square foot floor plans with a tag price from the mid $100,000s. Located at 690 Observation Trail in Green Valley, Solterra was built for Fairfield Homes by one of the leading new home builders in Arizona, Dorn Homes.
As premier home builders in Green Valley, Fairfield Homes and Dorn Homes showcased their home building expertise and standards with each of Solterra's custom home in Green Valley. The two new home builders in Arizona partnered to deliver home buyers with high-quality new construction homes in Green Valley. Fairfield Homes is known for building high-quality homes, while Dorn Homes has created a reputation for its Building Science. Dorn maximizes energy efficiency for its new luxury homes in AZ, surpassing the current standards set by the U.S. Government's Energy Star Program.
Fairfield Homes President and CEO, David Williamson, was quoted saying, “We are proud of our partnership with Dorn Homes and of the community we’ve created together. By the nature of their design, homes in this community will be up to 70% more energy efficient than the typical pre-existing home.” Alongside, David Grounds, President and CEO of Dorn Homes adds, “We believe, Solterra is the ideal combination of location, great design, quality construction and energy efficiency.”
The new homes in the new Green Valley community are carefully arranged for future home owners to enjoy the majestic views of the Santa Rita Mountains at sunrise and sunset. Home owners in Solterra not only get high-quality and energy-efficient homes, but they are also entitled to memberships to Green Valley Recreation.
