SOLD – 326 E Thunderbird Trl Phoenix Az 85042

SOLD – South Phoenix home with no HOA for sale.

South Phoenix is full of homes that were built mostly prior to 2000, that have no home owners association as part of the subdivision.  Most are, of course a little order as indicated, and many are on your traditional size lot.  Not the case with 326 E Thunderbird Trl Phoenix AZ 85042!

326 E Thunderbird Trl is coming to market soon.  This is an older home, built in 1960 and as such is a brick built home.  In addition home is part of the Thunderbird estates subdivision, which has for many years been a very popular subdivision.  The subdivision is relatively small, extending from Thunderbird Trail to Dobbins Rd, and from Central Ave to 7th street.  The vast majority of the homes are all on ¼ acre lots, and being that they pretty much at the base of the South Mountain, they offer both city and mountain views.

Both home owners that plan to occupy and those that have bought for investment purposes have found homes in the thunderbird estates appealing.  It has been ideal for many home owners for many reasons.  One of the reasons is of course it is a south phoenix home with no hoa.  Not having to deal with a home owners association is a great benefit to many people.  Also, home is incredibly well located.  It is a mere 10 to 15 minute drive to central Phoenix, all on surface streets.  As Phoenix is a grid, there is also multiple options for travel to choose, and the time of travel really won’t differ much.  Because many of the homes are older, investors have bought in area and done some great remodels………and sold for a nice profit!  I have seen many homes over the years which have been very nicely updated, and which have sold what would have been a nice profit.

This home has incredible potential for all buyers.  Starting with exterior of home, the front of home is desert landscape so is very little maintenance.  Nice curb appeal home with entry to home either from front of home or 2 car garage.  As mentioned this is a corner lot home and only shares one side with another home, home to the east.  Back of home offers a spacious back yard, also desert landscape.  Private pool is a generous size, and as was popular in the day is a little deeper than current pools being built, and offers a diving board.  No neighbors to back of home, small area was currently owned by Thunderbird gold club and was kept open without any visible use.  This particular section of the golf course was were cub house was located, and where driving range was directed.  Back in the day, I have been informed home may have met a golf ball on occasion.  Back of home also offers a covered patio area and entry to both main part of home as well as enclosed garage area.

Interior of home gives impression of a much larger home.  This particular South Phoenix home with no hoa, is generous with the size, layout and design of home.  Home is tiled throughout most high traffic areas such as entry, living, 2nd living, kitchen and hallway.  Bedrooms are carpeted and all are of good size.  Many homes built prior to 1980 had smaller bedrooms, but that is NOT THE Case here.  Bedrooms are all of ample size and are likely to accommodate all ones needs.  Master is located toward back of home, and while not a split floor plans offers plenty of privacy.  Master does have its own private bath with ¾ bath.  Two living room areas, one could be potentially a formal dining area.  Potential dining room does have a bay window, fireplace and is also of generous size.  Off kitchen living room is also of good size, is also off the entry and offers sliding glass door to exit to back yard patio.

Kitchen is also pretty large and has a good layout.  Plenty of counter space as well as cabinets.  Counter tops are all laminate counters.  All cabinets are older, potentially installed at time home was originally built.  Yet they have held up very well and are in good condition.  In kitchen breakfast nook with enough room for breakfast or dining table to sit 4/6 people (I did not test this, just a guess).

Garage area has been enclosed, or at least the vast majority of the garage has been enclosed.  Interior wall has been placed about 3 to 4 feet in from garage door, enclosing the larger portion of garage.  Within this area you will find the access to the laundry room, access to the main house at about the kitchen, and even a super small either living area or storage area.  Also, you could say the home also does have an additional 3rd living room, as the larger portion of the garage which was enclosed does have a large area, which could be used as another living room, or maybe a play area.  This area has been carpeted and does have a/c to it as well.  Nice room, with much potential!

Do you like the outdoors?  Well the location of this home is ideal for someone who works in the downtown area/Tempe area and has a love for the outdoors.  This home is located within about ¼ of a mile to the main entrance to the South Phoenix municipal park.  This park is one of the largest municipal parks in the world, and offers a little bit of everything for the outdoor enthusiast.  On a daily basis one can see many hikers taking on the many trails offers by the park.  There are several choices for hikers from easy to moderate to difficult hikes.  Many of these trails also serve for those who love riding mountain bikes as well.  Miles upon miles of choices, and of course many options for skill levels as well.  Like horseback riding?  The ponderosa stables offers horseback rides throughout the year, and you also can find boarding for your horse, if you own.  Joggers, walkers, hikers, runners, bikers, horse backers and so much more.

In a nut shell 326 E Thunderbird Trl Phoenix Az 85042 is a great choice for a South Phoenix home with no HOA.
