Living in Ahwatukee Diamond Ridge II
The Ahwatukee Diamond Ridge 2 subdivision was originally built by Knoell Construction, a builder that is known for building diverse types of residential and commercial properties that are tailored to fit the needs of the local community. They certainly achieved this goal with the Diamond Ridge 2 area by providing moderately priced luxury homes in this gated community.
This subdivision is a part of the coveted Mountain Park Ranch community offering three different parks containing swimming pools, tennis, volleyball, basketball, and much more.
Why These Ahwatukee Homes Stand Out
The houses in Diamond Ridge 2 may have been built by the same builder as part of a planned community, but each of the individual houses are quite unique and have their own special features and qualities. While the majority of these Ahwatukee luxury homes are mountain park ranch style designs, some are single level, while others have multiple levels, and they all have their own distinctive aesthetic characteristics.
As this neighborhood backs up to the beautiful South Mountain Preserve, most of the homes have balconies, patios, decks, and pools from which you can enjoy the view. Inside the homes, you will find amenities such as custom kitchen cabinets and islands, wet bars, granite counters, double ovens, remodeled bathrooms, and much more.
Ahwatukee Small Town Charm in the Big City
Diamond Ridge 2 is a favored subdivision for families as it has a gorgeous private community park right in the middle of the neighborhood, likely within walking distance from your potential home. Of course, the subdivision is also adjacent to the South Mountain Preserve, which has its own great walking paths and hiking trails where you can enjoy many outdoor activities.
Notice in the photographs that the street lights are quite charming. The small community of Ahwatukee offers residents the peaceful and close-knit feeling of a small town, with great shopping, restaurants, a public library, an ice-skating rink, and more.
What is even greater about Diamond Ridge 2 is that if Ahwatukee does not have something that you need, you are conveniently close to all of the amenities/employers that the neighboring cities of Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, downtown Phoenix, etc offer. By taking Ray Road to I-10, you can easily visit the neighboring cities without having to live right in the middle of the noise and traffic. If you do have children, they will have the good fortune of being part of the coveted Kyrene K-8 School District and the Tempe High School District.
