Living in Ahwatukee Summit

Typical Summit House

Typical Summit House

For those desiring the relative isolation and privacy of a completely separate, gated community surrounded by pristine desert, there is the Summit subdivision in the Ahwatukee Foothills Reserve.

Bordering on the South Mountain Preserve on the extreme western edge of Ahwatukee, the Foothills Reserve is quite literally at the end of Pecos Road.

Eighty-eight homes make up this gated subdivision, built by Woodside Builders in 2004-2007, nestled against the rocky foothills to take full advantage of the breathtaking mountain views.

Southwestern Architecture

Houses in the Summit subdivision are primarily of clean-line, Southwest contemporary architecture with terra cotta tile roofing, arched doorways, and hacienda-style open floor plans. Multi-story houses feature open balconies overlooking gracious living spaces, with luxurious wood or elegant tile flooring, ceiling fans, and welcoming fireplaces. You’ll find large gourmet kitchens with built-in islands, gorgeous granite counters, and spacious walk-in pantries.

Spectacular Landscaping

Landscaping in the Summit subdivision is designed to take advantage of the spectacular mountain and desert views while blending into the natural surroundings. Amazing designer swimming pools, waterfalls, hot tubs, and built-in barbecues abound, along with seductive courtyards, private decks, and exotic desert landscaping.

Nearby Schools and Amenities

Along with a top-notch school district, with Kyrene de la Estrella Elementary, Kyrene Akimel A-al Junior High and Desert Vista High School all just down the road in the neighboring Foothills area, the community is within a couple of miles of Club West and Foothills Golf Clubs, two of the Phoenix area’s most popular courses. Less than five miles down Chandler Boulevard, a favorite children’s playground can be found at Desert Foothills Park, along with two baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and real sand volleyball courts. Directly across the street is the Desert Foothills Marketplace, featuring nearly every convenience a family might desire.

Parks and Recreation

Directly to the north of Ahwatukee’s Summit subdivision is the South Mountain Nature Preserve, with 50 miles of marked trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Measuring nearly 17,000 acres, this pristine area is considered the largest municipal park in the world and is home to coyotes and all sorts of other desert-dwelling creatures. For other forms of recreation, there is the Lone Butte Casino, operated by the Gila River Indian community, along with the Chandler Center for the Arts, with lots of amenities for theater and art lovers.

I had a list price in mind, but Brian suggested a higher price and my property sold for more money than I had hoped.
