Property description

Come vacation in a beautiful and peaceful setting in sunny Avondale, Arizona. Situated in the southwest portion of the Phoenix Valley, your home away from home has 1,800 square feet (3 bedrooms, 2 baths) of well-designed and appointed living space. Set in a very quiet neighborhood, this home backs to one of the few waterside areas in this desert paradise. You can enjoy the restful beauty of this home, and still be only minutes from shopping, entertainment, golf courses and major sporting venues.

The newly furnished home has a light and airy feel, with vaulted ceilings in the main living areas. There is plenty of space to gather, either in the large front room, or the spacious family room… or step outside the back door and enjoy the patio area, complete with water views, desert plants and bird song! Bedrooms are comfortable, quiet and tastefully designed for a restful stay.

Amenities of the home:

Air conditioning and ceiling fans
Security system
WiFi and cable
51 inch HDTV and BluRay player in family room
Phone (local calls only)
Fully equipped kitchen, including spices and basic staples
All appliances, including new refrigerator, washer and dryer
Dining area - seats up to eight (front room)
Second “kitchen” dining area - seats up to six
New king bed (master suite) with 47 inch HDTV and BluRay player
New queen beds in both guest rooms
Sofa in front room converts to a queen bed for 1-2 additional persons
Covered patio area with table and seating
Weber gas grill
Professionally landscaped grounds, including citrus trees
Two-car garage with remote

Please note: smoking is not allowed inside the home, or anywhere on the property. Pets are not allowed.


Events, entertainment and recreational opportunities

The Phoenix area is host to many world-class sporting and entertainment events. The home is located within a few short miles of the University of Phoenix Cardinals Stadium. Adjacent to the football stadium is Gila River Arena, home of the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes. NASCAR races take place at Phoenix International Raceway, also just nine miles away. Major League Baseball’s Cactus League is home to fifteen MLB teams who spring train in the Valley of the Sun. Golf courses, hiking and biking trails abound in the Phoenix area. In addition, movies, shopping and restaurant options are moments from your Avondale location. Even closer to home, the back-door lake affords fishing (catch and release only) and a network of walking paths for casual strollers.

Easy access to Interstate 10 (1.5 miles away) puts Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and downtown Phoenix sports (Arizona Diamondbacks and Phoenix Suns) and cultural venues within a 20-25 minute drive. I-10 and the rest of the extensive and accessible highway system make it easy to explore the Valley of the Sun and points beyond from your Avondale location.

So if you enjoy a quiet and unique setting in a comfortable home, with easy access to lots of activities and amenities - come vacation with us in Avondale!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are a Colorado couple. Sam is a retired housing consultant for individuals with disabilities and Angie is a social worker and part-time elder care coordinator.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Gardens, Avondale, AZ, USA:
We have been traveling to Phoenix for the last six years to escape the Colorado spring snowstorms. Angie has five first cousins in the area, so Phoenix has always been a second home. We both love the desert beauty of the Valley of the Sun.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this lake community on our first visit and were fortunate to find a property on the water that will allow us to share this beautiful place with our family, friends and rental guests. The trails around the lakes provide residents and visitors with 8.75 miles of walking paths. We have spotted birds such as geese, ducks and herons. Every day we see something new and different.
