Single-family residences are detached homes with front and back yards, a driveway, and an attached carport or garage. Many homes are built on golf course lots which give owners open views of the course and the fairways. Sun City AZ has two man-made lakes that are surrounded by homes and duplex units offering the owners excellent views across the lake. There is also a section in Sun City AZ called Rancho Estates. These are single family homes on acre-size or larger lots with horse privileges. Not all of the Rancho Estates homes currently have access to the recreation facilities in Sun City AZ.
The community has seven recreation centers, eight golf courses, two bowling centers, an outdoor amphitheater, a 33-acre man-made lake, and Duffeeland dog park.
