Ahwatukee waterfront lake communities and homes

Lakefront property nestled in the Ahwatukee Foothills of Phoenix

Bordered by south mountain park to the north, Ahwatukee was annexed by the city of Phoenix between 1978 and 1987.  However, this unique community prides itself on it’s own identity even though it may have a Phoenix address.  The 35 sq. mile Ahwatukee Foothills community has even had it’s own newspaper, the Ahwatukee News for over 30 years.  Once you drive through, you’ll realize that it is unique and different from any other Phoenix suburb.

Access to the Ahwatukee area is from the east and extends approximately 9 miles to the west and then you turn around head back the way you came, leading some to call it the world’s largest cul-de-sac. The upkeep and cleanliness of Ahwatukee neighborhoods is impecable.  You’ll even be impressed by the well groomed medians as you travel east and west along Chandler Blvd.

Waterfront communities in Ahwatukee

The largest Ahwatukee lake community is Lakewood, followed by Miragalo and Canyon Springs at the Foothills. Lakewood has over 170 waterfront homes. The Santuary, a custom home subdivision has some waterfront homes.  Retirement community homes built in the mid-1970’s  can be found in Ahwatukee, but you’ll also notice the exclusive custom home gated subdivisions with homes that sell for over $3 million.  The rolling foothills of south mountain provide scenary and settings that cannot be matched.  The convenient I-10 freeway access and short distances to the I-60 and 202 freeways make the Ahwatukee area an ideal location to minimize commuting time. 

 Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway

 If there is a hot topic constantly on the minds of the Ahwatukee residents it is the future construction of the loop 202 South Mountain Freeway. It would run east and west along the Pecos Rd. alignment along the southern border of Ahwatukee and become a 10 lane freeway in the original plan.  The most recent update is considering a Parkway instead of a freeway which would reduce the number of homes that would be displaced and reduce the overall cost. For anyone considering Ahwatukee, this should be at the top of the list of due diligence items.  With environmental concerns, budgetary pressures, and many Ahwatukee residents settling for nothing less than a no-build position, this will be the issue to watch.
