Maracay Homes announced today that its Freedom Collection of homes at Victory at Verrado in Buckeye, Arizona, has earned three Gold Awards in the National Association of Hombuilder’s (NAHB) Best of 55+ Housing Awards competition.

The Arizona homebuilder received top honors for Best 55+ Universal Design Home or Community, Best 55+ Detached Home 1,701-2,400 Square Feet for its Entertainer floor plan, and Best 55+ Detached Home Over 2,400 Square Feet for its Traveler floor plan. “These awards not only represent the pinnacle of achievement in the 55+ industry, but are a testament to the hard work and expertise that went into the development of Victory, Phoenix’s premier active-adult community,” said Maracay Homes President Andy Warren. “We partnered with the award-winning architecture firm KTGY to create this all-new collection of floor plans because we knew KTGY’s innovative approach to active adult design would help us build something truly special.” Located in the 55+ Victory district of the all-ages Verrado master-planned community, Maracay Homes’ Victory at Verrado boasts homes designed for baby boomer preferences – with a new level of livability and thoughtful features throughout. The Traveler and Entertainer are among five single-level FlexDesign floor plans showcasing accommodating Universal Design elements that enhance the ease of living without sacrificing style. With notable conveniences, such as split master bedrooms, wider hallways and doors, sitting showers, raised ovens and dishwashers and storage within reach, each home seamlessly supports the active adult lifestyle. The NAHB Best of 55+ Housing Awards is the industry’s only national awards program honoring excellence in building, design, lifestyle and marketing of housing that appeals to boomers and beyond. Finalists were selected from entries in 41 categories representing active adult housing, service-enriched housing, lifestyle and marketing activity and four categories representing individuals and firms.
