We have lived in the Phoenix area since 1986 and we have seen the city triple in size. In those 35 years we have witnessed the natural evolution that comes with such growth. The Phoenix Suns of the NBA were here along with the NHL farm team known as the Roadrunners had a strong followings.
Today the area is home to the world champion Diamondbacks of MLB, the Suns, the NFL Cardinals, the NHL Coyotes and a host of spring league teams in baseball. The home is close to these venues and next door to the spring training leagues. The Ben Avery shooting range is close by and one of the nation's largest public shooting ranges in the USA.
Phoenix is the gateway to the Southwest, including the Grand Canyon, cliff dwellers, Sedona, Tombstone and Karchner Cave. Golf courses are world class and there are lots of them. There is plenty to do but the number one reason for growth has been and continues to be the dependable sunny weather.
Summers are hot and that is why prices are lower in the Summer, but Winter is beyond awesome. Warm days and cool nights mean for the best golf days, best biking days, best outdoor days in all of America. Plenty of hiking desert mountain trails minutes from the house. The Thunderbird hiking trail park system is about 4 minutes away and boasts 4 differentn desert mountains that we hike each morning.
The home comes with an entertaining friendly BBQ and backyard. Don't be fooled by the lure of a swimming pool, as you cannot swim in them in the Winter months.
