Why Are Ahwatukee Homes for Sale So Desirable?
Living in Ahwatukee (there is no place like home)
Although technically one of the 15 urban villages of Phoenix, Ahwatukee is the most unique of them in that it is bordered by South Mountain Park to the north/west and Indian Reservation to the south. The I-10 highway is its border on the east. It is, in essence, a large peninsula (35 square miles) with access only on the east. This in part gives Ahwatukee a small town feeling found in very few places across the Phoenix valley.
This is very rare in the Phoenix Real Estate Market where most cities/neighborhoods just blend from one to the next for what seems like forever. These natural borders create a small-town atmosphere for Ahwatukee (80,000 people as of the 2010 census) and feel like a separate city within the sprawling Metro Phoenix Area.
