Fountain Hills Fountain Park Condos
The Hot Spot in Town!
If you've ever visited Fountain Hills you'll notice most people are talking about the "hot spot" in town, that is the Fountain Park. The story goes that in the early 1970's a famous fountain designer was commissioned to build the Fountain for the town of Fountain Hills to initially attract people and encourage them to buy the new lots the town had just put up for sale. Fast forward over forty years later and the Fountain Park still draws a crowd! In recent years it's become the destination for many a snowbird looking to live within walking distance of this famous site. Fortunately there are many options available close to the Fountain Park, from affordable one bedroom condos to luxury gated townhomes with all of the amenities you could ever want. Fountain Hills Fountain Park condos are certainly high on the desirability list among snowbirds and retirees though so they tend to not last very long.
The hardest part as a buyer is deciding just how close you want to live to all of the action! There's the town's main street just across from the Fountain Park with quaint shops, restaurants, and side walks meant for long strolls, or you can really be in on the action and live in the swanky penthouse condos located on the grounds of the Fountain Park. They are luxurious condos, have only the finest finishes, and of course amazing views from almost any direction. The name of this subdivision says it all...Plaza Waterfront.
Now if you're on a tighter budget there really are affordable condos and townhomes still within walking distance of the Fountain Park and the Ave. of the Fountains shops and restaurants. If you're ok walking an extra street or two you can find great buys for much less than you would think. How does a two bedroom two bath condo with an open floor plan, full upgrades like granite kitchen counter-tops, tile flooring throughout, and great views of the Fountain Park for just $157k sound? Not too bad to me! This community is still considered part of the Fountain Hills Fountain Park condo community and known as Desert Sage Condominiums. They are very popular homes and the owners seem to be genuinely happy to own in that subdivision from my experience with them.
Whether you're just visiting or seriously looking to buy I'm willing to bet you'll enjoy spending time exploring Fountain Hills Fountain Park condos. My best guess is that that part of town will remain the hot spot to live and play for some time to come. Whether you're renting or buying they go quickly and in this market for top dollar but with enough patience and the right support you can get close to all the action no matter your budget. Happy house hunting!
