About the Homes
Miramonte at the River is an infill neighborhood of about 163 single family homes that was built between 2006 to 2011. Standard Pacific Homes started construction on the homes in 2006 until the company decided to leave the Southern Arizona home building marketplace in 2008.

Size of homes
The homes range in size from 1397 to 2894 square feet. There are several floor plans that offer between 2 to 4 bedrooms, and between 2 to 4 bathrooms. Most homes are 2-levels, but there are several single level homes and even a few 3-level homes (these often have elevators). 2 car garages are the norm, however a few of those are tandem style.
All of the homes in the development have an attractive front wall and gate that opens into the a front courtyard space. Most of the homes offer a compact backyard, but several have more spacious yards and/or side yards. Depending on the floor plan, some homes have upper balconies for additional outdoor space.
The homes are painted in a variety of modern southwestern colors that blend well with the touches of rust patina metal on the garage doors, corrugated metal porch overhangs, and rustic adobe style walls.
