Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Maura, Shirley and I (Mary) purchased this property together. Shirley was retired and lived here full time. I would visit every other month or so. Each visit Shirley had made a list of 'honey do's' for me to complete. It wasn't a burden but a joy to do for her. Shirley would often sit nearby and watch whatever task I was tackling, with childlike amazement and curiosity. Shirley had varied and eclectic taste in decorating which is evident from her Oriental room divider in the green room (guest room) to Humphrey (her 4 foot tall camel which is standing in the master bedroom), to the 12 foot by 6 foot oil on canvas painting of the Canary Islands which she commissioned in 1994, depicting one of her favorite places she, and her husband Fred, would often visit. I love being at Shirley's Place. Shirley lived ever minute and lived those minutes in color. Come and enjoy 'Shirley's Place' as we have. Enjoy hours of effortless conversation while dining on the patio, swim in the clear blue water of the community pool (I was only able to get her in the pool once!) while being in the presence of color, joy and the love of life.

Why the Owner Chose Alta Mesa Community Association, Mesa, AZ, USA:
For the first five years we owned the property, Shirley's 'honey do' lists were so long that I never had the time to travel beyond the 'Home Depot.' But after finishing most of the projects, and not too long before she passed, Shirley and I took drives around this beautiful country. We discovered Tonto National Forest, Canyon Lake, Saguaro Lake; we went to a couple of San Diego Padre spring training games in Peoria and even a couple of Diamondback's games. It was wonderful. Even at her age of 84, she had such wonderment of life which gave me so much pleasure to experience these things with her. She taught me to live in color and to rediscover that childlike wonderment.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Just beyond the patio on the common green belt area there are several large trees. Song birds populate the trees and put on a concert of song each night at dusk. At different times during the year, you can close your eyes and be transported to the middle of the jungle because of all of the different sounds! I think I love 'Shirley's Place' the most because of all the colors; green and white kitchen cabinets, blue and periwinkle in the master bedroom, green in the guest room and gray and Sedona orange in the guest bedroom. Color is life, and Shirley sure had that. Her niece Tina, an artist, painted a mural on an entry wall in the theme of the Cannery Island painting. The mural complements her painting so well. That mural greets you as you enter the front door and sets the mood of 'vacation' when you first enter her home. Enjoy!
