Welcome to your home-away-from-home! Cactus Ridge is a single-story home set in almost a ½ acre against the backdrop of South Mountain in the Ahwatukee Foothills. Completely remodeled with a contemporary yet cozy feel, the home is equipped with everything needed for a stress-free stay. Whether you wish to relax and unwind, stay active, or keep connected with your business, the property provides a private haven with fabulous views, close to all amenities including world class golf.
Equally ideal for one or more couples on an extended stay or for a family vacation, the home includes a piano room, pool table room and a spacious living room with comfy sofas and large flat-screen HDTV with Direct TV DVR, and DVD player. This opens to the modern kitchen/dining area with Bosch appliances, and dining area overlooking the scenic backyard and mountain views. The master bedroom has its own door to the patio and is privately situated on one side of the house together with the luxury master bathroom. On the other side are 2 further bedrooms (the largest with French doors to its own semi-private patio) and the office/reading room equipped with wireless printer/scanner/copier and with east-facing French doors opening to a swing seat from which to enjoy the sunrise or your morning coffee. The contemporary guest bathroom is also on this side of the property along with the fully equipped laundry and a fitness room.
The breathtaking backyard is the highlight of this property. In addition to the main patio off the living room, the outdoor bar and grill, complete with sink and refrigerator, is a perfect place for a BBQ or cocktail. A table under the trees provides an added dining option, whilst the fireplace is a warming place to gather once the sun goes down. Together with the pool, hot tub, sport court with basketball hoop, spacious paved area and extensive lawns, the indoor and outdoor amenities of this property provide endless opportunity for activity or relaxation.

About Alison Cameron
Originally from the UK, in 2008 we relocated through work, from the green hills of Yorkshire to the spectacular desert landscape of Phoenix. The beautiful Ahwatukee Foothills immediately cast its spell over us and after 3 years of getting to know this beautiful spot we finally took the plunge and bought a home. Work has taken us out of Arizona for the time being, but we love our 'forever' home and we'll be back to live here in a few years when retirement beckons. In the meantime, what a wonderful opportunity to share our beautiful home, managed on a day to day basis by our great friends and near neighbors, who will contact you on or shortly after your arrival, take care of any issues that arise and do anything they can to help you make the most of your stay.
Alison Cameron purchased this house in 2011
Why Alison Cameron chose Ahwatukee
The quiet charm of the Ahwatukee Foothills soon made us feel like we were permanently on vacation! The almost constant blue skies and sunshine, winter warmth, golf, hiking yoga, or swimming every day before or after work, and the famous illuminations of the Festival of Lights from Thanksgiving through New Year make Ahwatukee the jewel-in-the-crown of the greater Phoenix area. With easy access to all the metropolitan area has to offer, we will be forever grateful to the relocation agent that introduced us to this area when we'd only just crossed the Atlantic!
What makes this house unique
We hit the jackpot when found this cul-de-sac home in a friendly, respectful neighborhood only minutes from everything needed for daily living and all manner of leisure activities. The high vaulted ceilings and unique floor plan resulting from a creative remodel provide light and space in a seamless entertaining and family area that still has plenty of options for quiet retreat! We never tire of the views from the backyard where the spaciousness gives a sense of being in a private rural oasis. Adding the fireplace, outdoor kitchen and hot tub was the 'icing on the cake' and with this final touch, we created our dream home and and for us personally, a little piece of paradise. We hope you will think so too....!
