Arizona’s First Man Made Waterfront Community

 Welcome to Arizona’s first man made lake community which offers a combination of desireable waterfront single family, patio homes, and condo’s for total of over 200 waterfront properties.  The majority of the homes were built between 1972 and 1977 providing very mature and lush green landscaping throughout this Tempe Az lakefront community. The proximity of this Tempe lake community to the US60 and downtown Phoenix is a significant advantage when considering commute times.

The Lakes Community Facilities, Community Pool and Spa

When someone buys a home in The Lakes, they not only acquire a residence for their family, but they also become part of a bigger family and community at The Lakes.  Residents enjoy and have access to the The Beach and Tennis Club.  Community manager Christine Baldanza described the community as extremely close knit and the best lake community in the valley.  Residents enjoy a community pool and spa, tennis courts, basketball and sand volleyball court. The club facilities are open to residents for parties, receptions and host many of the community sponsored activities such as water aerobics, boxercise, Yoga classes, and The Lakes Women’s Club.  More information can be gathered at The Lakes Community website. The Lakes also enjoys close proximity to the 2 acre Gaicki Park east of McClintock.

BELOW APPRAISAL! This is one of ONLY lakefront homes that has a view of the lake from EVERY bedroom (except 1). The other ''''Show Stopper'''' is that you can see the lake & pool from the MOMENT YOU WALK IN THE FRONT DOOR! (Many lakefront homes in VVL don''t have the ''''open'''' view-in fact, you might not even see the lake or the pool until you are in the back of the house!) So allow me to navigate you in: The first thing you notice as you are driving to this home is the Multi-Million Dollar Clubhouse with Jr. Olympic Pool, Sandy Lagoon Pool, Hot Tub, Boat Dock, Banquet Rooms, Work Out Facility, Raquetball Courts, Lighted Tennis Courts, Firepit, Gazebo, Sand Volleyball courts & much more.
