Property description

Escape to this 2,700 square foot custom home overlooking the lake in The Islands community. Watch the sun rise or set from our covered balcony or patio in this south-facing home.

This perfect vacation spot is for those desiring the quiet tranquility of the lakefront community as well as those who seek the fast pace of Phoenix and its many recreational activities including NASCAR, Arizona Cardinals football, Phoenix Suns basketball, Diamondbacks Baseball, Coyotes hockey or Cactus League Spring Training. Your vacation here will have something for everyone!

Home Features: The master bedroom upstairs features a covered balcony with lake views, large tub, snail shower, walk-in closet, a King bed, and a 35' HD Flat Screen TV. A second upstairs bedroom has a Full Size sleigh bed and its own bathroom.

Two bedrooms are on the first floor of the house, one with a Queen-sized bed in our eclectic 'orange room' and the other with a twin bed in our adorable 'dog room'. These two bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower. Additionally, the sectional in the living room has a pull-out bed which can sleep two.

The den off the kitchen features a fireplace and a 55' HD Flat Screen TV with Surround Sound. Additional living spaces include a living room, dining room, newly remodeled kitchen with granite, a breakfast nook, and reading nook at the top of the stairs. Lake views can be seen from the master bedroom, master bath, den, kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room.

Outside, the house boasts of a heated pool with spa, a covered outdoor kitchen, a dock with four kayaks and one stand up paddleboard, pave-stone patio with three different seating areas, and three fruit trees which produce grapefruit and oranges from January to April.

The pool was resurfaced in December 2013 and automated with AquaLink system. Use the keypad to control the pool heater, pool light and spa. Very simple!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our family desired a place to stay close to my sister in Phoenix so that the cousins could spend summers and holidays together. With my husband's death in 2007, we all learned the hard way the value of family and enjoying the time we have together.

Why the Owner Chose The Islands, Gilbert, AZ, USA:
We picked this property, close to my sister, but on the water so that we would feel like we were on vacation when we came to Phoenix from Austin to visit. My parents and friends enjoy this house because of of the pool, lake and fun Phoenix activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We decorated this property with a Tuscan feel so your vacation experience will feel European without having to leave the US.
