Sunbird: Chandler’s Quintessential 55+ Community
Located in Chandler, Arizona, Sunbird welcomes those 55 and above into its vibrant age-restricted community. Conceptualized by Robson Communities, Sunbird was envisioned as a cozier, more affordable alternative to the larger Sun Lakes community nearby. With 1,631 residences, Sunbird exudes an intimate, community-driven atmosphere, contrasting some of the sprawling adult communities in the vicinity. This gated golf community presents a variety of attractively priced single-family and manufactured homes for potential homebuyers. Additionally, with its multitude of clubs, activities, and interest groups, Sunbird ensures there’s always something happening.
