About the Property

Beautiful updated 4 br home with sparkling pool

This is a great home in a very central North Phoenix location. It is close to the Freeway but backs up to the Mountain Preserve so it is very quiet! The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and has been updated throughout. Upstairs is the master bedroom with a walk-out patio. The upstairs bath is open to the master bedroom. The second upstairs bedroom has its own door but opens into the master bedroom area. The two downstairs bedrooms are both private and share a hallway bathroom. Travertine floors, new plush carpeting, new appliances and updated kitchen and baths make this a spectacular vacation retreat. This is our personal house, so everything has been done right. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. High speed wireless internet and cable television are included. The back yard is an entertainers dream with large covered patio, built in BBQ with sit-up bar, children's playground in back yard and a sparkling diving pool with extensive landscaping. It is great for outdoor BBQ's and sitting out and enjoying the perfect Phoenix weather. If you like to hike or bike, you will love the hiking trails just out the front door. Everything is close by so you won't have to drive far for shopping, restaurants, golfing, sporting events, and all the other activities that Phoenix has to offer.
