SANTO TOMAS, SONORA MEXICO'S AMAZING BEACHFRONT SECRET
SANTO TOMAS, SONORA’S BEST BEACHFRONT SECRET
There are many communities south of Puerto Peñasco that are drawing attention. Most of these developments will show great returns for those who do their proper homework. One that is arguably leading the pack is Santo Tomas. Santo Tomas is happening now.
Las Dunas is the first phase of Santo Tomás, a dramatic combination of 3,360 acres of beautiful Sonoran desert, with 2½ miles of the most pristine swimmer friendly beaches in the state of Sonora. This beautiful setting is located on the edge of a fertile agricultural area where grapes, olives, citrus fruit & most of the country's asparagus are grown.
There are about 20 homes completed and many more in the planning stage in section one. More than two-thirds of the 121 custom building lots in the first 2 phases have been purchased. The average size is 11,384 sq. ft., the smallest is 9,600 sq. ft. Section two consists of 9 oversized beachfront lots ranging from 14,000 to 15,000 sq. ft., and 11 hilltop estate lots which range from 16,000 to 28,000 sq. ft. Section two was just made available for purchase, and believe it or not the beachfront lots start out at $350,000. This is a big difference to the pricing in Puerto Penasco which are hovering around a million dollars for beachfront in most any community. This is really special since the lots in Santo Tomas have underground electricity, drinkable water, and a banktrust available on every lot. This fact cannot be said about any lot in the Puerto Peñasco community or anywhere else for hundreds of miles.
Aguila is the newest community at Santo Tomas. Nestled on the base of the dunes southwest of Las dunas section two, Aguila will be comprised of three phases. The first phase, which will be available for pre-sales soon, will consist of 107 homes. Aguila will offer new possibilities at Santo Tomas, with beautifully designed homes ranging in price from $125,000 to $300,000, (Including the lot!) For the first of time they are offering a complete lot and home package with 11 different models available. Homeowners will be able to select from innovative home designs that combine comfort and value with the spectacular views of Santo Tomas. Homes range in size from just under 1000 to over 2600 square feet, and will be similar in look and feel to existing homes in Las Dunas. Aguila will offer its residents a variety of amenities. A community pool, picnic areas, barbecue grills, walking paths, HOA, and easy beach access are a few of the features that are planned for this community. Aguila will follow in the Santo Tomas tradition of environmentally sensitive design and construction.
The Estrella Las Dunas Condominium project on the north end of Las Dunas is now under construction at Santo Tomas. In the area of the old beach club, this attractive, secluded low-rise complex is taking shape on the most pristine beaches the Sea of Cortez has to offer.
Featuring 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units, each Estrella Condo includes a private patio or balcony facing the sea. Numerous amenities will be integrated into the condo area. These include a resort-sized pool, heated spa, outdoor barbeque facilities, outdoor bar and an amphitheater / beachclub facility for events. The adjoining Fitness/Recreation Center will offer several fully equipped exercise areas together with specialized areas for spa services. The lounge in the Center will provide a place to play games, have a drink, have a bite to eat or simply relax while enjoying the spectacular views of the Sea of Cortez.
