These are 3-plex patio homes, built by Gosnell developers between 1979 and 1985. Each home is 2 bedrooms, 2 story and between 976 square feet and 1060 square feet. There are only 192 homes in the entire neighborhood and the HOA is professionally managed.

Peoria Road cuts through the neighborhood, but don't let that worry you. Peoria is a busy street in many parts of town but not here! This HOA wields some clout with the City of Phoenix. Years ago, they lobbied the City to change the left-turn only signal at 7th Street & Peoria to a very rare "red" left arrow. It does it's job, which is to cut down traffic in this quiet neighborhood.

The HOA still thought they could do more to reduce traffic in this secluded, walk-friendly neighborhood. Just a few months ago, they put in "roundabouts" at the intersections of Peoria and 9th, and Peoria and 11th Streets. Pics and hopefully video to follow soon; check back.

AREA INFO -  The Pointe Tapatio neighborhood is located south of Desert Ridge and north of the Biltmore area in North Central Phoenix. The neighborhood is an early example of a master planned community. Situated on about 1200 acres tucked into the shadows of North Mountain, the Pointe Tapatio neighborhood features a mix of patio homes, townhomes, condos and apartments. Pricing (as of fall 2008) ranges from the low $100,000's to the half-million dollar mark. Recent development in 2002-2005 includes homes from $850,000 to over a million in a gated enclave perched atop a local hillside.

There are several HOA regulated neighborhoods in the Pointe area, and each features open green spaces, community pools, and even dog runs. The entire area feels lush and green due to the many mature palm trees and flowering plants.

This is a walking-friendly neighborhood and you'll often see your neighbhors out at sunrise and sunset taking advantage of the wide sidewalks, bike lanes, and easy access to the hiking trails and recreation at nearby North Mountain Park.

Many of the properties at the Pointe were built in the early to mid-1980's by Gosnell Development, who built the Pointe Tapatio Cliffs resort, which is now a member of the Hilton family of resorts. Only minutes to get on freeways 51, 17 and 101. It's a short drive to Scottsdale Community College, PV Community College, and the Discover Card and American Express campuses.
