Great property values, quality education and with close proximity to downtown Phoenix, Anthem is nestled in at the foot of Daisy Mountain and offers friendly neighborhoods for its residents. Located 39 miles north of Phoenix proper off I-17, Anthem is home to a diverse and energetic population of families, empty nesters and retirees that have found the amenities here were just too good to pass up. A water park, golf courses, mountain views, miles of walking paths, hike and bike trails, athletic fields and numerous parks are just some of the reasons why residents here feel the living couldn’t be better anywhere else.
Anthem is a master planned community that has won a number of awards, including “Best Master Planned Community for Children” by AZ Foothills Magazine (2016), “Outstanding Facility” for the new 10-acre Opportunity Way Park by the Arizona Parks and Recreation Association (2017) and the “Hottest Neighborhood” for Parkside’s Midwestern and friendly appeal by Phoenix Magazine (2017).
The Community Center here is the perfect place for neighbors to meet and families to have fun. The three-story rock climbing wall, a fitness center, indoor basketball and volleyball courts and lighted outdoor tennis courts and a skate park offer ways to stay in shape. The Center is also home to a teen room with games and activities, and even provides youth camps and childcare services.
In addition to the Community Center, residents here have access to Big Splash Water Park. Kids can cool off in the water features and zip down the water slides, or join a dive and swim team. There’s also a 25-meter heated lap pool and diving well for the more serious swimmers, and swimming lessons offered by 5-Star Elite Certified lifeguards. An update to the Master Plan will have Anthem adding a new dog park, pickleball courts and an expansion to the skate park and Community Center over the next three years.
Life in Anthem offers affordability and convenience. Access to the 101 and I-17 makes commuting easy. And although it is not fully finished, Loop 303 has made travel time from the I-17 to Route 60 a breeze, and in turn has brought many commercial businesses to the thriving area. As a result, home prices here are stable and continue to maintain or increase in value.
Homebuyers may choose from several different neighborhoods within the master planned community. More than 7,000 homes make up the Parkside Community Association, with 202 more being added as part of Pulte’s new Circle Mountain Ranch neighborhood. The gated Country Club community is well-suited for both families and empty nesters, with two top-rated Greg Nash-designed golf courses, Persimmon and Ironwood, and more than 2,800 homes.
