Best Neighborhoods in Ahwatukee

Here are five of the best that should be on your list as you shop for Ahwatukee real estate!

Ahwatukee is one of the most desirable Phoenix area communities, offering access to the city and the natural areas of South Mountain Park in one convenient location. If you are discussing these homes with the Ahwatukee real estate agents you are working with, here are five communities that should be on your list.

Ahwatukee Equestrian Estates

If you are looking for Ahwatukee homes for sale and happen to own horses, then Ahwatukee Equestrian Estates must be on your list. This subdivision is designed for horse owners and enthusiasts, with horse trails and an equestrian arena to make enjoying your horse simple. While not all of the homes have room to have your horse on your property, plenty of nearby boarding facilities are available to accommodate horse owners.

Fairways at the Foothills

Fairways at the Foothills is a quiet, small subdivision located directly on the Foothills Golf Club. If you love golf, then this is the ideal piece of Ahwatukee real estate for you to consider. Many of the homes here back onto the golf course, providing beautiful views, and the mountains are also in the distance to add to the beauty of the view. It is a gated community that provides security and privacy for its residents.

The Sanctuary

If you are talking to Ahwatukee real estate agents about homes with a view, be sure to ask about available properties in The Sanctuary. The Sanctuary sits on the top of a hill, offering a beautiful, 360-degree view of the mountains surrounding Ahwatukee. While other subdivisions also capitalize on the mountains surrounding Ahwatukee, but none provide the panoramic views afforded by The Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is also a gated community, adding to the benefits of life here.


If you prefer a condominium community and the low-maintenance lifestyle afforded by a condo home, check out the offerings in Portofino. This resort-style condo community has a full service fitness center, pool and walking trails to add to the beauty of its stunning, spacious condo homes. You do not have to sacrifice luxury in favor of low maintenance living when you shop for Ahwatukee homes for sale in Portofino.

Tapestry Canyon

Finally, as you are discussing your Ahwatukee real estate options with your agent, be sure to consider Tapestry Canyon, particularly if you are looking to stick close to the city. This community offers the convenience of the more secluded, suburban feel of Ahwatukee and the stunning desert or mountain views, yet easy access to the city. Many homes are located at the edge of South Mountain Preserve, so outdoor recreation is just footsteps away.
