“The Residences At Fountain Hills brings together the sought-after elements of a mature neighborhood without the maintenance work,” said Jeff Brown, Sales Manager at The Residences At Fountain Hills. “Homeowners here enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle where building exteriors and common area landscape is kept pristine without them having to lift a finger.”

Nestled among existing luxury homes, The Residences At Fountain Hills features three condo buildings with elevators. Each floor houses only four homes, allowing for a balance of community and privacy. Base prices start at $189,500 for 1,770 to 1,828 square feet, two bedrooms and two baths. Two single-level designs are available, each with an open living/dining room plus a spacious kitchen with breakfast nook and private balcony.

“The outdoor living space is an ideal area for sipping morning coffee or catching up at the end of the day,” said Brown, adding that all of the condominiums overlook one or more of the neighborhood’s ponds.

Numerous standard features are included in all homes. These include central air conditioning; walk-in closets; four-panel doors; double-bowl kitchen sinks with garbage disposers; stainless steel ranges, microwaves, refrigerators, and dishwashers; 50-gallon water heaters; and name-brand fixtures.
