Anthem Parkside: Circle Mountain
Construction on model homes has begun (full story) after delays caused by winter rains.
Anthem is the largest town in the North Phoenix Corridor, straddling I-17. While the west side of town (including Circle Mountain) is in Phoenix, the east side is in Maricopa County. See our Anthem Overview for a comprehensive description of the town, its governance and amenities.
At Circle Mountain, Lennar Homes will build on 125 lots; Pulte Homes has 77. Both builders will create a mix of one- and two-story homes ranging from 1,600‒3,500 square feet.
These are the same as the rest of Anthem Parkside, including a water park, Olympic-size swimming pool, tennis courts, an expansive gym and fitness center with rock-climbing wall, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, several sports fields supporting community-organized soccer, flag-football and baseball leagues.
There’s a skate park, roller hockey rink, sand volleyball court, and catch-and-release fishing ponds. There are several miles of natural and paved hiking and biking trails throughout town, and dozens of small “pocket parks” with playgrounds. Also, the North Valley Regional Library is in Anthem.
The primary public high school is Boulder Creek High School. The main K-8 is Canyon Springs. See our overview of schools in and near Anthem, including public, charter and private. See also test scores & enrollment figures.
A Fry’s Marketplace and a Safeway grocery anchor two of several shopping plazas in Anthem. Circle Mountain is very close to a Walmart, and the Outlets at Anthem, which is populated by a range of brand-name stores. There are several restaurants and a full array of business services in town. Two other major shopping centers are just 20 minutes south.
There are four regional parks for hiking, boating and other outdoor activities, all within a 30-minute drive. Sky Harbor International Airport is about 37 miles to the south.
