New in Old Town Scottsdale!
1301 N. 70th St
Do you love the vibrancy and convenience of living in Old Town Scottsdale, but not necessarily the older, outdated mid-century homes that come with it?
Do you love the sleek, modern feel of new construction, but don’t feel like commuting from the boonies where you can afford it?
South Scottsdale home buyers, I feel your pain! Fortunately, I am not here to commiserate, but to present a solution to your dilemma in the form of our new listing at 1301 N. 70th Street. Located in the Papago Parkway subdivision near McDowell and Scottsdale Rd, this home is ideally situated at the gateway to downtown Scottsdale. Not only is it convenient to all of the shops, restaurants, and nightlife of Old Town, but it is mere minutes from ASU, the Phoenix Zoo, the Desert Botanical Gardens, and smack dab in the middle of re-development and new construction that is completely transforming the area into one of the most sought after locations in the valley.
Now, I know what you are thinking. You can’t afford to drop the $500-800k for the new homes that are being built just down the street, nor do you necessarily care for the mid-century ranches with popcorn ceilings, shoebox layouts, and kitty-cats-playing-with-balls-of-yarn wallpapering. If you could only find an older home with some character that didn’t feel quite so … old. Or break the bank.
Just when you thought you would never find such a unicorn, I bring to you this South Scottsdale marvel, saddled up and ready to ride!
From the moment you walk through the front door, you will be mesmerized by the wide open great room concept. The living room wall was removed and replaced with a beautiful, exposed wooden beam. Porcelain faux-wood plank flooring stretches throughout the main living areas, giving the home a warm feeling to compliment its easy care. If you are familiar with the old galley style kitchens that most of these homes originally came with, you will truly appreciate the new (2013) island kitchen that greets you beyond the great room. Featuring highly upgraded new cabinetry, slab granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances, this is a kitchen befitting a home several price ranges higher.
All new (2018) carpet in the three bedrooms. Remodeled bathrooms with new (2013) tile shower surrounds, vanities, and flooring. New, tall baseboards throughout. The roof was replaced in 2013. ZERO popcorn ceilings remain in the home. The bonus room is a perfect space for a home office/den, play room, exercise room … you name it!
Last, but most certainly not least, is the incredible back yard. Located on a prime corner lot, the home sits on one of the largest lots in the entire neighborhood. Better yet, it is usable space on a rectangular lot that offers a covered patio, grass lawn, children’s play area, and bare gravel beyond the RV gate that is an ideal pad for parking your boat, trailer, cars, toys, etc.
I could drone on and on, but I know you are really here for the pictures. I’ve been teasing them out one at a time, but now for the big reveal.
