My wife and I had the opportunity of a lifetime a couple of weeks ago to travel in Europe (Thanks mom and dad)! One of the cities that really impressed us, maybe because of the spectacular setting on the Adriatic Sea was the waterfront city of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia. It has a rich history which is due mainly to its maritime influence and trade. One of the first things you notice is a wall that surrounds the old city of Dubrovnik with a series of turrets and towers that were used to protect the city.
When the assistant editor of FrontDoor.com, which is sponsored by HGTV, contacted me wanting to interview a client that had purchased a Phoenix waterfront home, I knew Kim would be a perfect candidate to articulate the desireability of a waterfront home. Their family had relocated from California for a job transfer. It became apparent very quickly that in addition to a desireable floorplan, good schools and accessibility to shopping and freeways, a waterfront home in Ocotillo Lakes was at the top of the list.
Lakefront Community Profile
One of Gilbert’s smaller lakefront communities with approximately 100 waterfront homes, Lago Estancia is unique from other waterfront communities with the walking paths next to the shoreline. Many of the homes that back up to the lake have a view fence separating the backyard from the water, which is ideal for families with small children that want the security of a fenced backyard but also enjoy the ambiance and serenity that a lakefront property offers.
