Tri Pointe Homes®, a recognized leader serving the Phoenix market for more than 30 years under the name Maracay®, has announced the opening of 12 new model homes and two new home galleries at Waterston North, a new 485-home community located in the southern part of Gilbert in Phoenix’s coveted East Valley area. Customers can now make an appointment to tour the model homes – two in each of the six new gated neighborhoods at Waterston North— Aderyn, Kestrel, Meadowlark, Starling, Tanager and Whimbrel.  


“We are incredibly excited about the debut of our new model homes and new home galleries at Waterston North given the high quality and great variety of thoughtfully designed offerings in addition to the record-approaching sales track record that the planned community has built,” said Tri Pointe Homes Arizona’s Division President James Attwood. “From the special East Valley location to our innovative home designs, product offerings and amenities, everything lines up for a truly wonderful customer experience.” 

Homes in Waterston North’s new neighborhoods range from approximately 1,830 to 3,970 square feet with three to five bedrooms, 2 to 3.5 baths and 2- to 3-bay garages. The neighborhoods will consist of Aderyn with 104 homesites, Kestrel with 73 homesites, Meadowlark with 94 homesites, Starling with 69 homesites, Tanager with 70 homesites, and Whimbrel with 75 homesites. Each neighborhood will offer four floor plans to choose from with the exception of Starling with five. Varying by plan, the homes will offer executive gourmet kitchens, large pantries and even larger laundry rooms, extended patios, central game rooms and private courtyards for residents to enjoy. Homebuyers can also select from Flex Design® options and the GenSmart Suite®, Tri Pointe Homes’ thoughtful design package for multigenerational living.


Waterston’s newest amenities include Central Lake with a great lawn, pool and clubhouse, and pocket parks and walking trails within each of the new neighborhoods. The design of Waterston draws on the natural environment of neighboring Veterans Oasis Park and Gilbert Recreation Center. It also creates an atmosphere that’s centered around outdoor living, adventure, and water including the community’s seven-acre Central Park and Grand Ramada. Part of the highly rated Chandler Unified School District, the new K-6 Rice Elementary is conveniently located within Waterston with a direct connection via the walking trail that runs throughout the community. With freeways 202 and 101 in close proximity, residents will enjoy quick connections to employment centers as well as retail offerings, restaurants and recreational areas.

“The new neighborhoods will offer quality community amenities and close proximity to local parks and other attractions,” Attwood said. “There is so much to connect to and enjoy at Waterston North, both inside and out, and we look forward to showing homebuyers with our new models and galleries.”
