Why I Love Highland Estates
I love Highland Estates. I purchased a home in the community in June of 2012 and made it my home. The home was an investor flip and was completely renovated.
I love the community so much, that I purchased another home on the same street and am in the midst of a complete remodel with plans to move in towards the end of the year – I’m so excited. The new home is a red brick home – I’ve always wanted a red brick! My plans are to have my mother spend winters in my existing home.
A Little About Highland Estates
Highland Estates is an intimate community of just 144 one-story, single-family homes, many of which have been remodeled. It’s a pleasure to live in an established neighborhood with owners who take great pride in their homes and their community. Some are the original owners. Others, like me, are new to the neighborhood.
These homes were built in the 1950s, which is lucky for homeowners who live here. One of the best features of homes built during this time period is the block construction. Either 8-inch, painted block or red brick. Solid block construction translates to high energy efficiency, a huge plus in Phoenix
Another bonus to the community is that many Highland Estates homes were recently renovated to include upgraded flooring, fixtures, and appliances, which gives them a more modern feel and is contributing to the continued value appreciation in the community.
Highland Estates Amenities
In addition to the remodeled homes, much of the area is experiencing an exciting revitalization. The iconic Town and Country Shopping Center, at 20th Street and Camelback Road, is currently anchored by LA Fitness and Trader Joe’s and the brand new 35,000 sq. ft. Whole Foods!!
It’s a great area to walk – within easy strolling distance of a number of unique eateries and bars, many of which are locally owned, a nice change of pace from the chain restaurants.
Highland Estates homes are ideally located between Highland and Campbell, west of 20th Street – just blocks from Biltmore Fashion Park. In my opinion, it’s the best mall in town with to-die-for shops like Coach and Escada and the eclectic Union retailers.
Live here, and you’re in the highly sought after Madison School District.
