The Ahwatukee Retirement Village is a 55+ active adult retirement neighborhood of single-family homes and townhomes located within the larger multi-generational master-planned community of Ahwatukee Foothills.

Being conveniently close to loads of shopping, restaurants, medical facilities, and movie theaters, as well as to downtown Phoenix and the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport makes this one of the most desirably located active adult communities in the Greater Phoenix Area.

In addition to the convenient location, the Ahwatukee Foothills are surrounded by scenic mountains, walking and biking trails, and five golf courses.

Ahwatukee Active Adult Real Estate

The Ahwatukee Retirement Village surrounds the Ahwatukee Country Club, which is a public course. Some of the houses and many of the patio homes enjoy golf course views and are within walking distance or an easy golf cart ride to the clubhouse.

Ahwatukee Retirement VillageThe active adult neighborhoods offer single family homes or small single-level patio homes. Most of the patio homes offer golf course lots, as well as a “lock and leave” maintenance-free lifestyle.

Most of the single family homes were built during the 1970’s, so the homes may need some updating to satisfy the needs of today’s retirees, but the homes are inexpensive and buyer’s who purchase here love the convenience and beauty of the area and believe that updating a home is a fair exchange for the area, neighborhood, and price.

Ahwatukee Golf

Ahwatukee Country Club offers a full-length regulation course and an executive course, called the “Lakes.”

In addition to the Ahwatukee Country Club, the Ahwatukee area has two other very nice public courses: The Foothills and Club West, which are both owned by Ahwatukee Country Club.

The Ahwatukee Golf Group offers an annual pass that is good at all four of their championship courses, as well as the Lakes executive course.

About the Ahwatukee Area

Ahwatukee (“Ahwatukee Foothills Village”) is a bedroom community located just 15 minutes south of downtown Phoenix.

Ahwatukee Walking TrailsThe town was named after the Crow words awe chuuke, meaning “land on the other side of the hill,” or “land in the next valley, because Ahwatukee is separated from Phoenix proper by the scenic South Mountains, which provide dramatic views and challenging walking trails.

In 1971 the 35.8 square-mile village was purchased by the Presley Company, owned by Elvis Presley’s uncle. Although annexed by the City of Phoenix, many of its residents consider it a separate city. Ahwatukee currently has a population of approximately 85,000 people and is considered one of Phoenix’s 15 urban villages.

Picturesque views in an environmentally rich location with excellent schools, neighborhood restaurants, eclectic boutiques, and 21 nature parks all within a few minutes commute to downtown Phoenix, make Ahwatukee one of the most desirable locations in the Valley of the Sun.
