Welcome to Ahwatukee Homes
Although technically one of the 15 urban villages of Phoenix, Ahwatukee is the most unique of them in that South Mountain Park borders it to the north/west and the Gila River Indian Community to the south. The I-10 highway is its border on the east. It is, in essence, a large peninsula (35 square miles). This partly gives Ahwatukee a small-town feeling found in few places across the Phoenix valley.
This hometown feeling is scarce in the Phoenix area, where most cities/neighborhoods blend from one to the next for what seems like forever. As a result, these natural borders create a small-town atmosphere for Ahwatukee (83,464 people as of the 2016 census) and make it feel like a separate city within the sprawling Metro Phoenix Area.
People love to call Ahwatukee home as there is just something about how this Master Planned Community was carefully designed around the South Mountain and its Foothills. That is to say, many of the subdivisions, parks, and amenities are nestled between the foothills to create a more natural separation. Lastly, don’t forget about all the spectacular South Mountain views and the Estrella Mountains.
Ahwatukee homes can be found in the zip codes of 85044, 85045, and 85048, which, by the way are exclusive to Ahwatukee.
