If you want a cool, and historical home with the absolute best location, this is the horse property for you! Your new equestrian estate has a split floor-plan home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, with a huge office space!
Phoenix was the place to be in the 1960s and was the fastest-growing city in the US during that time. The Valley of the Sun was booming with wealth, mystery, prestige, charm, and allure of the wild wild west.
Many of these wild west equestrian lovers flocked to this area around the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and built amazing homes. Fast forward to 2022 and these historical homes and the location is now coveted.
Your new home is one of these homes. The original home was built in 1962 with the highest quality construction and sits on a prime lot. Your home now has many modern upgrades for the twenty-first century.
Your new home was once a modest home and has been expanded over the years to include a comfortable, spacious primary bedroom and bath and most importantly, his and her's primary closets to be envied. Other major upgrades include a bedroom abandon to create a bright, open entry from the front courtyard and in the living room the roof was raised and a beautiful top-stone fireplace was added along with additional top-stone arch and wall.
Your new property is tucked into the foothills of the beautiful Phoenix mountain preserve. This historic neighborhood still often has horses on the street headed to the great mountain to ride off into the sunset for miles and miles and is a highly sought-after equestrian area.
Your new home is centrally located with easy access to freeways, Westworld, Sky Harbor airport, downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale.
If a quiet, private lifestyle is what you are seeking, this is it! Your home has a Mountain Preserve feeder trail just blocks away. This trail gets no traffic and with a short hike, it connects to Trail 100.
This means very little public accessing the trail and you can hike, bike, or ride your favorite trail horse for miles in the pristine desert. (See photo of the map with access to trails.)
