The Magic of Living in Ahwatukee

The old adage “location, location, location” still holds water in 2014.  Location does matter, particularly if a home is located in a great school district.  Both high schools in the Ahwatukee Foothills – Desert Vista and Mountain Pointe – are operated by the Tempe Union High School District.  Tempe Union has the best test scores of any district in Arizona. 

Geometry students may enjoy the fact that Ahwatukee forms a triangle at the corner of Phoenix,  35.8 geometrically perfect miles of people living the good life in the foothills.  Maybe it is because Ahwatukee was not annexed by Phoenix until 30 years ago, or perhaps it is because they are geographically isolated from the city by South Mountain and South Mountain Park, but for whatever reason, residents of Ahwatukee are their own people.  The area has relatively few access points to the city and some have even called Ahwatukee “The World’s Largest Cul-de-Sac,” a label locals wear with pride.  Westerners, after all, enjoy their independence. 

With the South Mountain Park right in their collective front yard, folks living in Ahwatukee have a myriad of outdoor opportunities to have fun.  Hike, baseball, soccer, cycling, picnicking, and inline skating are all everyday activities.  Imagine coming home from work and knowing that you could unwind in the great outdoors, with some of the most scenic views in the U.S.

Whether you’re looking for a residence on the smaller side, or want a manor-type house like one of the Ahwatukee homes for sale in country club setting, this is a magical region.  In fact, if golf is your game, Ahwatukee features four options – all of which help explain why people travel from around the world to golf in Arizona.

The Club West Golf Club offers views of both mountains and a valley, and boasts a 17th hole that has been named as an Arizona “Signature” hole.  Ahwatukee Country Club is home of The Academy of Golf, a testament to how seriously they take their game.  The Foothills Golf Club is a par 72, laid out in a desert garden and rated 4 stars by Golf Digest. Finally, The Duke Golf Club is an award-winning public 18-hole desert course and home of the world-famous Silver Spur Grill. 

If living in the "World's Largest Cul-de-Sac" and walking outdoors to breathtaking scenery is your idea of "coming home" I am the Ahwatukee real estate agent for you.  Sure, anyone can sell you a house, but I want to sell you a home.
