Over 4000 acres of splendor can be had just a few minutes South of downtown Phoenix. Back in 1968 these 4000 acres were sold for less than 2 million dollars. Today, it’s possible to buy a single home in Ahwatukee for this bargain price. Del Webb eventually purchased the foothills for development in 1986. The “Foothills” is considered by many locals to be the place to live in Phoenix. Maybe it’s the next stop on your home buying adventure.
