YOU WON'T FIND A NICER HOME IN OAKWOOD! This is resort-style living with all the comforts of home. Watch golfers try to lower their handicaps from the comfort of your living room. Observe awe-inspiring sunsets from the spacious covered patio, complete with a fire pit for those 'chilly' Arizona evenings. Enjoy the oodles of amenities afforded all who come to Oakwood. You won't want to leave!
Ours is a charming 2,000 square foot single-family home located on the fourth fairway of the Sonoran course at Oakwood, a private, gated community in Sun Lakes. It is beautifully decorated with a Tuscan flair with warm, inviting colors and conveniences throughout. Relax in one of our matching recliners in the living room, and watch your favorite programs on our big screen HDTV with surround sound.
Curl up with a good book on the chaise lounge in the den. Watch HDTV on the loveseat or the king bed in the master bedroom. Take a nap on the double bed in the second bedroom or the day bed in the front bedroom. Do a little web surfing in the office. Better yet, unplug your computer and do your surfing from anywhere around the house (including the patio) -- the high-speed internet is wireless!
Whip up a fine meal in our full kitchen, or if you prefer outdoor cooking, pour yourself a refreshment and fire up the gas BBQ on the covered patio. Don't worry about getting too warm out there, the two outdoor ceiling fans will cool you off. When the meal is ready, you can eat on the patio or inside. The formal dining room seats 8, the informal breakfast nook seats 4, or you can grab a quick bite at the breakfast bar.
When you want to venture out of the house, Oakwood boasts plenty of things to keep you busy. You will have full access to both the Oakwood and Ironwood facilities, which feature beautiful clubhouses with amenities aplenty. In addition to 45 holes of golf, you can enjoy tennis courts, gigantic heated pools, spas, hot tubs, arts & crafts center, outdoor poolside restaurant & sports bar.
There are more than 100 organized activities -- just pick the ones you want! There are also miles of walking paths for those who enjoy strolling and physical exercise. You can also escape the boundaries of Sun Lakes and enjoy the multitude of activities in the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area. If you're feeling adventurous, Tucson, Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon are all a few hours away.
So what are you waiting for? THIS IS IT! Contact Bob or Cindy and sign up for your slice of paradise.

Bob and Cindy Banta live in Fort Collins CO with their two children.
We bought the home because we intend to retire to Sun Lakes. We have family there and we were attracted to Sun Lakes because of their many amenities and activities. We are looking forward to a life of leisure there after our kids have left the nest, but also loved the idea of sharing our home with others in the interim.
Sun Lakes offers so many activities that it's hard to imagine getting bored there. If that should ever happen, it's nice to venture outside the development and take advantage of everything the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area has to offer. Shopping, restaurants, golf, tennis, water sports, even casinos are all a short drive away. The area lacks for nothing -- except cold weather!
