Candela Homes Orange Sun

Powered by the Sun

Candela’s luminous amenities are powered by the sun with pools, parks and playgrounds ready to welcome laughter, picnics and fun under bright blue skies.

The Axis Amenity Center is a place where sun salutations on the yoga lawn will get you ready to start the day, gym rats can get their groove on at our fitness center and Fidos can have their day at our future dog park. Spend a fair afternoon at our resort-style pool, enjoying our future Solstice Park or lounging in the shade of our pavilion. The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down, either. Café lights illuminate neighborhood gatherings and roaring fires in the outdoor fireplace light up the night.
