About this listing
Private comfortable modern condo in an updated mid-century modern building with a lush garden. Fully stocked: Internet, Coffee, Soaps, Plush towels. Walk to local restaurants. Everything is close: hiking, airport, convention sports center, Downtown.
The bedroom features a queen bed with high quality bedding. Open up the patio doors to let in fresh air or just let the light filter in.
Beautiful contemporary modern space in vibrant Uptown Phoenix.
Renovated with contemporary finishes to match the modern architectural style of the building: clean lines, simple decorations and great utility. The focus is on less clutter and more quality. Expect comfort, clarity, peace, cleanliness and utility.
It's a space created to be comfortable, warm, clean and relaxing. When creating it, we wanted to create a feeling of peace for the body and the mind: a relaxing space.
The condo is about 650 square feet - third party measurement.
The living area is open from the kitchen to the living room, with a kitchen island as a break between the two. The island serves as a dining table.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, cups, pans, utensils and anything you need to create a great meal or you can just put something in the toaster oven and make it easy. Note: there is no microwave - food really tastes better from the toaster and only take a bit longer than nuking it in the microwave.
The living area has lots of seating if you want to invite guests or simply find you own comfortable way to read one of the magazines or books or to watch TV: connect to Netflix and other apps through Apple TV - or on your laptop via the fast WiFi.
The bedroom with a Queen bed is bright with a sliding door to the patio with a seating area. We provide high-quality bedding so you sleep in comfort. It's lovely to sleep here with the sliding door open at night. There are extra pillows, linens and throws in the closet if you need them.
The bathroom is a favorite of mine. For a small space, it sure feels open. Double sinks, a large shower all make it very usable. Soap, shampoo, hair blow-dryer are all here as are high-quality heavyweight luxury towels. Even the toilet paper is plush.
Includes the use of the onsite laundry.
Covered parking in the back.
Need space for bikes? Just ask, we have a storage shed where you can keep them.
You have access to a front fenced yard with a table and chairs shaded by two citrus trees and the more private backyard with lots of grass, shade, tables, chairs, flowers and a grill.
The back yard is shared, please feel comfortable using it: relax on the lounge chairs, get a tan or sit on the grass with a book and smell the roses. There are now 10 rose bushes. Many flower year round.
Interaction with Guests
The condo is all yours. It's as private as you want or we're here next door if you have questions about getting around or which restaurants to go to.
Access is via a lockbox which is easy to use, but we can meet you as well: your choice.
This is Uptown Phoenix: know for being green, for the scent of orange blossoms in the spring, irrigated lots, mature trees, ranch, vintage and modern homes.
You'll see neighbors walking together or alone, with dogs or children, even into the night. It's quiet, friendly and welcoming.
This is old Phoenix. Many of the homes are older with character and built to last. This area used to be all orange groves and it shows. Some of the citrus trees are original.
It's the middle of the city yet you can hear chickens, you may see a horse and some people have lamas: it's got character, for sure.
What I love about it besides what I wrote is that it's near so many restaurants - most of the highly rated and locally owned, the Phoenix Mountains with hiking trails, several parks, one with 2 lakes, the freeway is near-by and just a bit farther are downtown Phoenix, midtown Phoenix and the Biltmore area.
The airport is 15 minutes away and the convention center 18 minutes. Everything is so close.
There are a few great restaurants near-by, within walking distance:
Rokerij or Richardson's which offers New Mexican food and have been here forever.
Vigs Uptown, Dick's Hideaway is like it sounds, a hideaway with no sign announcing it, except that sign that states, "unaccompanied children will be given coffee and a free kitten."
It's right next to Luci's: a local market where many of the neighbors like to hang out. A bit further, but still close there are other great places to eat and a few micro-breweries. If you want recommendations let me know.
Like most of Phoenix, without a car it's difficult to get around. Don't count on public transportation. A bike, though, works great.
We're near the I-51 freeway so access to places like the Convention Center is quick: 15 minutes - similar for the airport.
