Havasu Foothills Master-planned Community
Master Plan - click to view
Havasu Foothills is the exclusive single-family residential community in Lake Havasu City. This unique setting provides recreational and southwestern desert dwelling opportunities unparalleled in the desert southwest. Havasu Foothills is located amongst the desert foothills east of Lake Havasu. These foothills provide privacy and a unique sense of exclusivity while enjoying dramatic desert, lake and mountain views.
The philosophy at Havasu Foothills is the sensitive integration of a unique architectural image within the natural desert environment. the goal of Havasu Foothills is to achieve "harmony with nature" by blending all improvements with the existing Mohave Desert and the surrounding mountains. the unifying theme for the community is the enhancement of the natural desert within a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing community.
Havasu Foothills is well suited to justifying such a philosophy. It is bordered on the west by the distinct features of the Seven Sisters and Lake Havasu while on the east by the Mohave mountain range. Close-range views of these mountains, vista oriented views across the Colorado River Valley and views of Lake Havasu are available to most building sites throughout the property. The expression of architectural and landscape design must be responsive and complement the desert environment, rather than dominate these features and views.
The Havasu Foothills philosophy encourages and fosters quality design in architecture and landscape where individual home site owners, and the community as a whole, bear the responsibility and agree to cooperate to achieve Havasu Foothills' goal of “harmony with nature.” to this end, the architecture and landscape design emphasizes an organic inseparability between residences and the desert landscape.
