Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We purchased the home to use as a vacation home to escape Ohio winters...and as a get away at other times of the year. We love coming out here but find with grandchildren in other states now our time visiting is diminished. So we have decided to open our house up for others to enjoy!
Why the Owner Chose Anthem: We have especially enjoyed this home and chose it over others for a variety of reasons. Number one is its southern exposure. Sitting on the back patio in the winter sun reading a book is heaven! The houses behind us are a good 20 feet below us so no rooftops to obstruct the views over the wall. To the right is a wash so the only home we can see from our back yard is the one to our left. This home was originally built/owned by one of the Del Webb mangers when construction began on the community. Consequently, it features many upgrades others of the same model/size do not have: extra large master, upgraded carpet and tile, enclosed den, extended patio and stereo speakers throughout, including the back patio.
The Unique Benefits at this House: You can walk to the Persimon fitness center and pool in 5 min. and walk to Safeway, Starbucks, a variety of restaurants and pharmacies in less than 20 min. You can relax on the patio and listen to music while enjoying a fire. You can take day trips to Sedona, Prescott, the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff as well as many fun small towns. There are 2 private golf courses right there available to the public through EZLinks.com. You are close to Phoenix and being at 2000 ft elevation are slightly cooler and better air quality.
