Here are some pictures of my Condo in south central Phoenix in the suburb of Ahwatukee, beside Federal land called South Mountain Park. The view is spectacular and is very unusual compared to many properties in Phoenix, where your neighbor’s wall/window/parking spot was the main view. This view shouts 'ARIZONA'! It is in the western end of Ahwatukee; off Chandler Blvd. Ahwatukee in a very upscale district of south-central Phoenix, 20 minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (KPHX) and 30 minutes from downtown Phoenix, both via Hwy 10.
It is my dream place to get away from harsh Canadian winters without having to retire yet. I will have two sets of golf clubs and other sports gear for included use. There is high speed, 13 MG, WI-FI Internet, 80 channel High Definition Cable TV and phone with North America Long distance 5c/min. installed in the apartment.
The Condo is a two bedroom, two bathroom, 1600 square foot, 2nd floor apartment with attached closed garage, Air Conditioning, a laundry room in the apartment, a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and garburetor and a fully furnished, decorated Living Room and Dinning Room with Gas Fireplace and Electric Wine Cooler. The two bedrooms are at the opposite ends of the unit for privacy with en suite bath-shower-toilet-sinks-closets. It will sleep four in the two bedrooms with an extra inflatable bed available for a fifth person if required. It is in a gated Condominium Community with a Common Area that includes two pools, a hot tub, and a Bar-B-Q area. The Recreation Building has an exercise room, Surround Sound Theater for 6, Kitchen and Living Rooms for receptions, plus a small Business Center and meeting room. The grounds are palm treed and beautifully landscaped.
I am a retired Air Canada airline pilot with a second career as an Aviation Simulator Instructor. I live in Manitoba and work in Toronto and other locations. I love the weather of Arizona and the beauty of the city of Phoenix.
The city of Phoenix is well served by several air carriers from Canada and is only a 3 hour flight away. The winter weather and temperatures are perfect at 70 -80 degrees F in the winter day time. Many activities such as golf, hiking and motor biking provide unlimited enjoyment not available in Canada's winter season. The summer season is also pleasant in the mornings when golf is cheap and enjoyable in the cool of the mornings until 10:30. The costs of renting/buying/living in Phoenix is very modest.
