My name is Jackie, and I am retired from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Both my husband and I have lived in Washington State all our lives. We reside in Olympia. We both love the Pacific Northwest, but we wanted a place to go for some blue sky and warmth during the long, grey winter months. We've found that with the Estrella Mountain Ranch community and this home. We both absolutely love this home and the Estrella community along with all the amenitities this community has to offer.
I have visited Scottsdale for the past 15+ years for a Girls' Weekend Out. Having been to the area on so many occasions, I knew the area would meet my needs in terms of climate, but I didn't like the traffic in Scottsdale. I wanted someplace more rural. Just by chance, my husband and I visited some high school friends on one trip. They happened to live in Estrella Mountain Ranch. After touring the area, I knew that this community was just what I was looking for in the way of location and amenities. It really seems to have something for everyone--golfing for my sons, the pool for my daughters-in-law, and the water park and playground for the grandkids.
I love the walking trails around the North and South lakes and enjoy walking them in the early morning hours with the other walkers/joggers/dog walkers or in the evening when the sun is setting over the hills. The Arizona sunsets are beyond beautiful, and I never tire of seeing them--whether it's from the lake, our backyard, or the Safeway parking lot! I also love driving to the Star Tower when the sun is setting to enjoy the sunset and to stargaze. I'm not sure what it is about this place, but I can feel the stress evaporate as I drive up the hill to our home.
Minutes from our front door, you will find paved walking/jogging trails that wind around two lakes; mulitple desert hiking trails; catch and release fishing in the South Lake; tennis, beach volleyball, and basketball courts; a horseshoe pit; a children's playground; the Starpointe Residents Center, which offers a workout facility and a large community pool and small waterpark (seasonal); and the Star Tower park which is perfect for viewing stunning sunsets and stars.
