News > 4 Reasons to Live in a Fountain Hills Condo

Fountain Hills often gets overlooked by buyers considering a resort style environment around Scottsdale.  This town is very much "out-of-sight, out-of-mind, because you actually have to drive over a mountain to get to this desert enclave from Scottsdale.

But the views as you drive over that hill are spectacular, and that is one reason buyers start to get interested in a condo or townhome here, rather than in the "big city" next door.  But that's not all that's attractive in Fountain Hills.  Here are some other reasons:


The Golf Here is Fabulous

The We-Ko-Pa golf course, by the Fort McDowell casino, is among the top 20 courses in Arizona according to Golf Digest.  The Sunridge golf course (shown above), which is known for its "Wicked 6" holes, is also ranked in the top 25 "Courses you can Play" by Golfweek, and has a nice outdoor restaurant to enjoy the environment even after you play.  These courses and the others in Fountain Hills afford spectacular views of nearby mountains.  Some of the courses offer seasonal passes to give you the most value for your money.


Fountain Park is a great way to spend a morning


The 64 acre Fountain Park is the center masterpiece of Fountain Hills and has something for everyone. Besides the famous fountain that shoots 330 feet up in the area every hour and is surrounded by a 100 million gallon lake, there is also a disc golf course, a large children's playground and splash pad, and covered gazebos for a picnic.  One of the most used features of Fountain Park however, is the walking path that rings the lake.

After you spend time in the park, you can grab lunch at one of the nearby restaurants without having to get in your car.

Fountain Park and the nearby Avenue of the Fountains are often hosting art shows, farmer's markets and music events.


It's More Like a Small Town Here

Drive around Fountain Hills and you'll see numerous license plates from the midwest.  Folks from there can appreciate that the streets in Fountain Hills are just a bit less crowded than Scottsdale, though the population swells in the winter.  There's no highrises or freeways here either, and the town areas are easy to get to from most parts of Fountain Hills.

There are also some other small town things that residents enjoy, including local theater, local art exhibitions, a community garden, a Christmas market and other events, and much more than what we can list here.


Condos here Are More Affordable Than Scottsdale

Fountain Hills Condo prices are about 20% lower than are condos in neighboring Scottsdale.  This allows buyers on a budget to enjoy everything Fountain Hills has to offer.  Many condo communities have a pool too, and most are heated for our winter residents. 

Even ultra luxury condos are priced lower (compare the Overlook at Firerock to the Villas at Mountain Shadows).
