There is a small step at the entryway, the living room is sunken (family room is not), and there is a step up to the master bath. The Kitchen would be a little narrow in places. There are no ramps. I have had my mother here, but she had to have some help. I suggest for a person with at least some mobility, maybe able to use a walker part time. ...moreless

- Home was used for a TV show called 'It's A Miracle' and has appeared on 'The Opra Winfrey Show'. One of the first homes built in the area. It was the developer's home. It has an amazing casual elegance and charm that just draws people in. Impressive, yet still peaceful warm and inviting. The large Pine Trees, keep the property naturally cooler, and when the windows are open, the sight and sounds of the waterfall are so calming and relaxing. Lots for children to do, and great for gatherings. There is an air-conditioned room in back of the garages, set up for caterers. Talowa is located near South Mountain Park, the largest in city park in the nation. It offers many hiking and mountain biking trails. Where you can rent horses for horseback riding. It is not far from the freeway, just a few minutes to the airport, Downtown, and spring training facilities. Being just around the south east end of the mountain, we get the long twilight, perfect for relaxing evening walks. ...moreless

Why the Owner Chose Ahwatukee Foothills Village, Phoenix, AZ, USA:
Talowa has always been my Tara. When I got divorced, I wanted a home that could always be there for myself and my family. I am the Matriarch of my family, and Talowa has always been there when times were tough. My son lived there during the major renovations, while he was going to film school, at the Art Institute Of Phoenix, and working for PAX TV. They filmed a television show called IT'S A MIRICLE, at Talowa. It has even been on the OPRAH WINFREY SHOW. It was a lot of fun helping out, and feeding the crew. He now travels all over the world doing reality television, and is currently working on REAL WORLD. I have lived at Talowa myself, taken care of family when they were recovering from surgery. My children and their families, when they needed a home, my niece and her daughter, when she left her husband, my mother and others in need, have all lived there at various times, and it is a special place to each of them. I took care of my mother there after her open heart surgery. My significant other and I lived there when we were loosing his battle with cancer. Talowa has always given me strength. It is my Tara. I have had many parties at Talowa. It is a perfect place for entertaining. I would love to share it with you. It is great for vacationing, work, recover, and sanctuary. It is a healing place for the soul. It has great Chi.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Talowa has a unique feel as soon as you walk into the door. It is both elegant, warm and inviting. It has a comforting, protecting and sheltering sense about it. When people are in need, it opens it's doors and welcomes them in. People never fail to comment on how inviting it is. It brings them a sense of calm. You feel a strength from the nearby mountains. The sound of the waterfalls, the fountain, and the breeze blowing thru the pine trees all bring a comforting peacefulness. Talowa is naturally cool with it's large pine trees, and the long twilight in the shadow of the mountains. The view of the mountains to your north draws you in. You will feel a great peacefulness at Talowa. Though it is south of the South Mountain range where the air is clean, it is still only a short drive to Downtown, The Airport, Tempe, Scottsdale, and many local attractions.
