Property description

This exceptional home is in pristine condition, and offers everything needed for your comfort and relaxation during your stay!

This lovely home is beautifully furnished with plantation shutters throughout. It features newer appliances, two flat-screen HDTV's (living room and master suite) with cable TV and internet. The immaculate, fully-equipped kitchen has granite counters with a spacious eating area in the window bay; plus, there's a formal dining room for entertaining. You'll enjoy a large master suite with private bath and walk-in closet, and a guest room with its own adjacent bath. Both baths have comfort height toilets and grab bars in the showers.

There is a private backyard suitable for a small dog with lush planting and a grassy area. The large, partially covered patio has a gas BBQ, and gas fire pit to enjoy the beautiful desert evenings.

Sun City is a seniors only (55+) gated community. This home is in a very desirable interior location near a clubhouse with putting green, pool and exercise facility. Sun City offers a variety of special interest clubs and activities that you can participate in throughout your stay. There are three clubhouses, restaurants, tennis courts and two golf courses on site. In the surrounding desert cities there are Indian Casinos with featured entertainers, many fine restaurants, movie theaters and live theater close by. Polo, air shows, art festivals, and ballooning are among the more unique activities in the area -- something for everyone where the sun shines every day!

Sun City charges $50 per guest/per stay for the use of all facilities; golf greens fees are extra with reduced rates for renters.
