South Scottsdale real estate was one of the first developed areas of Scottsdale and offers a variety of housing options, from affordable single-family homes to multi-million dollar homes. The area also offers apartments, condominiums and townhomes in all different price points, giving the home buyer many options to choose from. The South Scottsdale area is long and narrow, with its borders from Shea to McKellips and from Pima to Scottsdale. The community is part of the Scottsdale Unified School District and is served by Chaparral, Saguaro and Coronado High Schools.
Near the South Scottsdale community is Papago Park, where visitors can enjoy the archery range, exercise course, baseball fields, softball complex and fishing lagoons that are stocked with catfish and trout. Papago’s desert trails are great for family hikes and mountain biking due to the smooth trails that have little elevation gain. The Desert Botanical Gardens and The Phoenix Zoo are both located at Papago Park and are a great source of entertainment for everyone in the family. The 18 hole Papago Golf Course is another source of entertainment and was designed by William Francis, who also designed the well known Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.
Tempe Town Lake and the Tempe Marketplace are also near in proximity to the South Scottsdale real estate. There are multi-use paths along Tempe Lake where you can walk, jog, bike or rollerblade and enjoy the beautiful sights of the water. You can also take advantage of the water activities offered at the lake: boating, sailing, rowing and fishing. The 1.3 million square foot Tempe Marketplace has an outdoor setting that provides retail, dining and entertainment. Both the lake and the marketplace are a popular destination point for ASU students since the main campus is so close.
South Scottsdale is only 10 min away from the Phoenix International Airport, with the 101 freeway easily accessible and close. The Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall, Old Town Scottsdale and The Talking Stick Resort and Casino are also all nearby for shopping, eating and entertainment.
