Not only is Phoenix one of the most populous cities in the nation, it’s also one of the biggest. Biggest meaning size – Phoenix is huge. It can take literal hours to drive from one side of the city to the other. Live in Europe, and that’s practically enough time to reach a whole new country. With over 500 square miles making up the greater Phoenix area, there’s a lot of diversity from one part of town to another. Which means plenty of options when you’re house-hunting. Today we’re taking a look at one of the city’s hidden gems: North Phoenix.

Northview at Stone Butte, one of our newest Arizona communities, has something for everyone. Here’s three reasons you’ll love it:

1. Location

At Northview at Stone Butte, you’ll be just as close to Phoenix’s urban amenities as you will be to the peace and quiet of the Sonoran Preserve.  The fun and attractions of Phoenix are always close at hand.  Meet up with friends at the upscale urban district of High Street, where you’ll find your new favorite specialty salons, boutique bars, and gourmet eateries. A quick ride away on the nearby AZ-51 or Loop 101 and you’ll be right in the heart of Phoenix or Scottsdale, so your old haunts are never far away. Or better yet, stay home and relax on your patio with a cool drink as you watch the sun slip below the mountains and the beautiful desert stars come out.

2. Outdoor adventures​

Athletes and fitness freaks will love the proximity to the Sonoran Preserve. Over 36 miles of hiking and biking trails meander through the 9,600 acres of the Sonoran Preserve, meaning a new adventure awaits you for every after-work run or Saturday morning hike. Golfers will love the being close to some of the city’s best courses, including the world-renowned TPC Scottsdale. Future soccer and baseball superstars will be able to show off their skills at the nearby Reach 11 Sports Complex, one of the largest of its kind in the western United States.

3. Community and homes

Six floorplans offer plenty of variety to choose from, ranging from approximately 2,770 square feet up to 4,290, so no matter the size you’re searching for you’ll find something you love at Northview. Floorplans are accommodating of families of any size, featuring anywhere from 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths to 6 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Every home comes standard with flex rooms to make your own, be it a productivity dojo of a home office, an enviable theatre space, or a family-fun game room; these spaces give you the opportunity to create something unique to your family and your lifestyle. And with one- and two-story floorplans, the hardest part will be narrowing down your favorite.
