                      Our guests are always surprised when they arrive at our desert home and discover we have 175' of private waterfront on a beautiful lake with mountain views! The lake is stocked with bass and tilapia and fishing from our pontoon boat is a favorite pastime (only to be rivaled by a happy hour circumnavigation).

                      We are surrounded by mountains and wildlife (great blue heron, swans, canada geese, ducks, dove, bunnies and hummingbirds).

                      Sun city is best known for its active adult community with 7 recreation centers and 8 golf courses. Each Rec Center has a a fitness center and swimming pools along with miniature golf, bocci ball, shuffleboard, lawn bowling and a variety of clubs (metal working, woodworking, painting, pottery, jewelry making, computer, bowling, cycling etc.) These facilities are within walking distance or a short drive. As golf carts are legal street vehicles in sun city you will find many people using their golf carts both on and off the golf courses. For $60 you will have full use of all 7 rec centers, hobby clubs and 8 golf courses (plus $27 for greens fee).

                      There are bike trails along the aqua fria which includes a nice park that makes a great resting place. Arizona is an amazingly diverse and beautiful state. Winter skiing can be found north in flagstaff, or south to Mt. Lemon. Sedona's world renown red rocks and hiking areas should not be missed and you can be at the south rim of the grand canyon in 4 hours. Better yet, take a helicopter tour of both the north and the south rim. Scottsdale with it's museums (the musical instrument museum is a must see), fine dining and shopping is only 35 minutes away.

                      Many restaurants (italian, thai, mexican, chinese, american), bars and theaters are within 10 minutes of our home.

                      The mariners and padres have spring training at the Peoria sports complex just 10 minutes from our house along with the hockey stadium. The Cardinals and Phoenix Suns games are a 30 minute drive. All this and a wonderfully relaxing home to return to where you can watch the sunset behind the white tank mountains as you cruise around viewpoint lake in the pontoon boat.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: We have been coming to sun city since 1972 when our parents bought property here. As guests we brought our young children and enjoyed tennis, golf, rollerskating, swimming in the outdoor pools and using the fitness centers and park. We love the friendliness and positive energy of people on the go in Sun City. We feel fortunate to have found this stunning property with one of the best views on the lake!

                      Why the Owner Chose Sun City:
                      We fell in love with this property because of the phenomenal western view of the mountains, lake and park. The house is close to the water and secluded from neighbors. We cruise around the lake aboard our quiet electric pontoon boat almost every evening to watch the sunset and greet fellow boaters. The lake is stocked with large mouthed bass, blue gills and catfish so we fish from the boat or the dock. We enjoy our coffee and freshly squeezed juice right at the water's edge at the table in the fruit tree orchard.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      175 feet of waterfront with a pontoon boat to cruise the lake and a golf cart to explore sun city and play golf on any of our 8 golf courses. The sunsets from the covered patio are not to be equaled! The house is very comfortable and fabulous for entertaining.
