Located in the southeast quadrant of Scottsdale Road and Lone Mountain Road in North Scottsdale, Bellasera is a 24-hour guard gated community with 360 homes. Del Webb built these homes starting in 1998, and completed the development in 2001. These luxury homes feature a wide variety of floorplans and square footage. While each home has a minimum of two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the homes do range in size from 1,394 to 3,387 square feet. Some residents have converted dens or covered patios to an additional bedroom.
Bellasera features several fantastic amenities: First, the community is home to a 5,000 square foot clubhouse. Within the clubhouse is a very well-equipped fitness center, with treadmills, circuit training stations, stationary bicycles and free weights. The fitness center also hosts various exercise classes, such as water aerobics, and also features a jogging path near the pool and spa. Walkers can enjoy 8 miles of paths throughout the community, as well as a spacious lawn area for various outdoor activities. One lighted basketball court and two lighted tennis courts are located near the clubhouse.
The community pool showcases a lap and lagoon design, with part of the pool sectioned off for lap swimming, and the other part of the pool features a shallow depth for lounging and visiting, thanks to its beach entry. Bellasera is also home to a 10,800 square foot, landscaped, fenced and lighted dog park. With a double gated entry system and plenty of seating, those with four-legged furry friends will enjoy hanging out in this picturesque setting.
Residents of Bellasera can participate in the social activities organized by other residents including luncheons and dinners at the clubhouse, poker and bridge nights, book clubs, and hiking clubs, among other activities. Every homeowner is a member of the Bellasera Community Association. The quarterly association fees include use of all amenities, maintenance of common areas and community streets, and the services provided by the gate security personnel.
