Litchfield Park Real Estate: Litchfield Park Voted One of Top 8 Citites in Arizona
Looking to take advantage of the great deals on homes right now but aren't sure where to look? Take a drive out to Litchfield Park. In 2009 Litchfield Park was named by Phoenix Magazine one of the top 8 cities to live in Arizona. Those of us who live in Litchfield Park or grew up in Litchfield Park would definitely agree with them. Litchfield Park has generations of families living inside the walls of "Old Litchfield" or right outside the walls in Litchfield Greens or The Villages at Litchfield Park. It really is quite amazing. Here's what Phoenix Magazine had to say about Litchfield Park:
The Cool Retirees (and Their Grandkids)
For a 3-square-mile town, Litchfield Park packs in a lot of personas. By reputation, it’s a retirement community populated by snowbirds who stayed. But if that rep is entirely true, why are there so many kids around, and why is the “main strip” anchored by Blu Sushi, an ultramodern Japanese-American joint, and Taps, a stylish black and brick bar where rock music rules and waitresses wear red bustiers?
With its breezy palm-and-orange-tree promenade, you could liken Litchfield Park to Palm Springs – except that the population is one-tenth the size, housing prices are $40,000 less, and the architecture is distinctly Arizonan. And just when you call it a resort community, you remember that only half the town is dominated by the Wigwam Resort & Spa.
“[Litchfield Park] has evolved,” says native Vicki Neal, 30. “It’s a fun little community, a mix of lively retirees and a younger crowd who grew up here.”
“You can be at Grille on the Greens [at the Wigwam Resort] partying with 50- and 60-year olds and having a great time,” says Kait Moore, 40.
So whether you’re a cool, golf-loving septuagenarian or a young family looking for a safe community with a diversely aged social circle, you’ll feel at home “in the park.”
