Esperanza Estates townhome description

Spacious master bedroom with private study and walk-in closets. Guest bedroom has added benefit of privacy and separate bath. Washer and dryer and other modern appliances are convenient and made for the older less nimble crowd. Cable tv and wireless internet are provided. The real reason people come here is for the Green Valley Recreation Association membership which comes with your rental agreement. There are 15 activity centers with everything from swimming pools and Jacuzzis to tennis courts, movies, gyms, wood working, billiards and more. To top it off you also get to use the separate Esperanza Estates Pool and Ramada facilities which are separate from GVR facilities.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: My wife and I live in Hereford AZ, about 2 hours away on the side of a mountain at 5,000 ft. in a beautiful Swiss style chalet. I am a retired NASA engineer and my wife is a retired business owner.

                      Why the Owner Chose Esperanza Estates:
                      My wife and I bought this property from the estate of my wife's uncle and completely remodeled for a place we will eventually retire.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      The front and back yards are delightful retreats in the morning or evening to enjoy a cup of coffee or an evening nightcap. Strolls down to the ramada for swimming are usually interrupted by pleasant folks sharing information about local activities. Its the nice people that make this place memorable.
