Laveen Arizona | One of the best places to consider buying in the Phoenix Arizona area

Laveen Arizona –  One of the best places to consider buying in the Phoenix Arizona Area

Laveen Arizona is one of the best kept secrets in the metro Phoenix area.  While it is very close to the central Phoenix area, it still keeps a certain rural charm.  Till very recently, it was for the most part a rural suburb with a lot of open farms and even a couple of dairies.  Laveen has been, a place with a very easy commute where one can be relatively close to work, and yet enjoy the rural lifestyle.
Laveen Arizona is located in South West Phoenix, bordering the South Mountain preserve on the south end and the Rio salado on the North.  It also stretches from about 27th Ave on the east to 75th ave (and the Indian Reservation) on the west.Laveen Arizona

So why is Laveen Arizona one of the best places to consider for buying property?

The area is really appealing for many reasons.  As mentioned above, the area offers some great commute times, and those are very likely going to be made even shorter once the 202 South Mountain freeway is completed.  The 202 freeway will allow commuters to travel via highway to the central Phoenix area, as well as other suburbs in Phoenix.  So easy commutes is 1.

We also have a lot of outdoor activities one can enjoy as well.  The south mountain preserve on the South end of Laveen gives access to about 17000 acres of mountain preserve, where one can enjoy nature at its finest.  There is MILES upon miles of hiking trails, horseback riding, mountain and road biking options and even many look out areas where one can enjoy the scenery.

One of the main reasons I call it home, is the rural feel.  When I moved to Laveen in 2001, it still had 3 dairies and hundreds of acres of farm land and horse property.  Like living close to the city, yet have the rural feel, then Laveen Arizona is the place to consider.

South Mountain Preserve

SMEEC – The South Mountain Environmental Education Center, which is located in the South mountain park, is an excellent resource in our area.  It is a great place to go and learn about the desert south west.  They offer tours, classes and even astronomy.

Horseback riding – The South Mountain preserve has over 16000 acres of land, which of course includes miles of trails.  This makes for great horseback riding, which one can do.  The Ponderosa stables is located just beyond the entry to the South Mountain preserve on Central Avenue entrance.  Here one can rent horses and enjoy a great outing.

The 202 south mountain freeway – As of today, the 202 is being built.  By the time you or someone else reads this post it may be open.  The 202 South Mountain freeway will give people in Phoenix the ability to easily travel from the South side of Phoenix (around Ahwatukee) to the Central and West Valley.  Commutes for many Laveen home owners will also be made much more convenient.
