                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          Why Desert Skies:
                          I decided to purchase in Desert Skies once I saw how beautiful, and well maintained the grounds are. The mid-century architecture really interests me as well. I really like how peaceful, and quiet it is here. The unit is away from the street, so there is minimal street noise, and offers beutiful views of the mountains from every window, along with pool and spa views.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Stunning views Quiet location of unit Beautifully landscaped and well kept grounds 2 pools and 1 spa Gas BBQ grill 2 Rec rooms
