Property description

This newly remodeled 3 bedroom, 1 3/4 bath home is located within walking distance of Arizona State University and downtown Tempe. City bus routes and a new light rail system make this location very desirable. Close to Sun Devil Stadium, Grady Gammage Auditorium and the nightlife of this college town, this home is ideally located for those who want to vacation in a quiet neighborhood close to where the action is.

Executive as well as designer golf courses are nearby. A short drive will take you to the spring training facilities for the Angels, Athletics or Cubs. The Phoenix Zoo is less than five miles away.

The living room and all bedrooms are equipped with cable television. The beautifully landscaped backyard features a covered patio and gas grill. The interior of the house is newly furnished with contemporary furniture.

Should you need more room than is afforded by this property, we own two other properties on the block -- VRB0 #395773 and, our newest, VRBO #933406.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: This was Shirley's first house, which she bought in 1985. When we got together and Pete's son moved in with us, we moved to a larger home two miles away. But, we love the university area. There is always something to do close by -- a concert, a festival, a sporting event, or just taking a walk. We will probably move back to our ASU house in the next few years so, when we recently remodeled it, we decorated it with care. We hope you enjoy! - Shirley and Pete

Why the Owner Chose Mitchell Park West, Tempe, AZ, USA:
It is fun to live in this neighborhood. It is quiet but close to a lot of activity. ASU students as well as home-owners live throughout, making the neighborhood upbeat and lively. Pete and Shirley have lived in the area since 1985.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is conveniently located to ASU and the numerous activities that occur there. You can always find something to do within minutes. A dog park is located at the end of the street so it is entertaining to just sit in the front yard, watching the neighbors walking to the park each night.
