About the Property

3 Bedroom Bright End Unit with Two Large Private Patios

Our family has visited the Phoenix area several times over the years, after which we decided that this is where our “home away from home” will be. The North Scottsdale community of Villages North proved to be a perfect choice -- a newer development, beautifully landscaped with mature trees throughout the property, close to some of Phoenix’s best attractions, and within walking distance to shopping for daily essentials and much more. With the spectacular backdrop of the McDowell Mountain range, this gated community offers a quiet resort-like oasis, with its 4 heated swimming pools and hot tubs, a tennis court and walking paths. Horizon Park is located across the street, offering many amenities such as basketball, tennis, sand volleyball, bike paths and more. Also within walking distance are the Arabian library and the McDowell Heights aquatic center, with its expansive fitness amenities, an outdoor lap pool, water park, skate board park and a variety of other services.

The condo unit is the largest model available on the property – a very bright and open plan 2nd floor end unit with 9 foot ceilings located close by 2 pool areas, BBQ grills and the tennis court. It is tucked away in the middle of the complex, away from the surrounding streets. It provides over 1600 sq ft of interior living space and two exceptionally large patios that beckon with views of the tree-lined greenbelt – perfect for that outdoor breakfast, an afternoon siesta in a private shaded area, or sunset gazing.

New beautiful walnut flooring now covers the living and dining rooms, accented by a cosy wool rug. Other upgrades include quality floor tiling and granite counter tops in kitchen, bathroom and entrance areas, stainless steel kitchen appliances, high-end furniture, upgraded fixtures and lighting, 50” flat screen TV entertainment system with HD cable, Blu-ray/DVD player and music system in the living room, 39' LED TV in master bedroom, 32' LED TV in the queen bedroom and WiFi throughout. The large kitchen is well equipped and ready to support any adventuresome cooks out there, unless the many fantastic restaurants in the immediate area win you over. The kitchen eating nook seats three comfortably, while the formal dining area table can accommodate 6-8 people. The master bedroom offers a king bed, large en-suite bathroom with double-sinks and newly tiled walk-in shower, and a walk-in closet; the guest room has a new queen bed ensemble and TV; the third bedroom holds two twin beds and a work/computer desk, and for that surprise guest, we have a pull-out twin hidden inside our large living room ottoman.

You will be able to park your car under a covered spot right in front of the unit – there is also plenty of visitor parking as well. The tennis court is a mere 100 yards away, as are 2 of the 4 large heated pools, each with a spacious deck area, lots of lounge chairs, a hot tub, change room and restroom facilities. If barbecuing is your thing, then fire up those steaks on the gas grills located beside each pool.

Don’t have a car? Not a problem! Right across the street from Villages North are two large shopping complexes where you can do your groceries at Safeway or AJ’s, a purveyor of fine foods offering delicious prepared meals, BBQ lunches, fresh sushi from the bar, coffee made to order, and so much more. Other conveniences include restaurants (Flo’s Asian, Starbucks, Pita Jungle, Chipotle, Yoghurtology and several fast food choices), two pharmacies, chic clothing boutiques, spas, banking institutions, to name a few. Everything you need is right here.

Whether you are in the area for a longer stay, a brief adventure holiday, or on business, Villages North is absolutely perfectly situated. Some of the area’s best golf courses are minutes away, as are the 101 Freeway, West World, Rawhide, Taliesen West and the Mayo clinic. You can enjoy the unique shopping and atmosphere of Old Town Scottsdale, a mere 15 minute drive from the property, or the professional basketball, football and baseball venues, all about a 30 minutes away.

Finally, for our family, being less than 10 minutes away from the McDowell Sonoran Preserve Gateway Trailhead to over 58 miles of trails into the wilderness and beauty of the McDonnell Mountain range was certainly has allowed us to enjoy the best of Arizona’s natural beauty by bike and hiking.

So welcome to our place and enjoy. Now all we have to do is await our retirement so we can really appreciate all this gem of a place has to offer.
