SOLD – 5444 W Shumway Farm Rd Laveen Az 85339

5444 W Shumway Farm Rd Laveen Az 85339 Coming to market

This Laveen home for sale will be coming to market by late June early July 2016.  Home is going on market priced for sale at $180,000.  Here are some basic information about this home:

4 bedroom hom

2 bathrooms

1795 square feet of livable space

single story

built in 2006

Builder – Pulte Homes

This home qualifies for the P2P down payment assistance.  Simply put, up to 10% down payment assistance.

This home offers some great features, starting with great curb appeal.  This single story home is located in the popular subdivision of Laveen Crossing in Laveen Arizona.  This subdivision is located just North West of the center of Laveen.  Super easy distance from center point of Laveen where one can find grocery stores, Home Depot, La Fitness, local bar and grills and much more.  Location of subdivision also makes for easy commutes to most areas of Phoenix.  The I-10 can easily be access by heading north on 51st Ave, and of course the I 17 is close to that location as well which makes access to North Phoenix areas simple.  Several local malls within a short drive as well.  Real estate is about location, and 5444 W Shumway Farm Rd has excellent location.  Easy in and out access from subdivision, and also far enough from the main roads to enjoy more tranquility.

Did I mention a great floor plan.  Above you can see the nice entry way to the home which also leads into the kitchen and living areas.  The living room area is carpeted through out, and also has upgraded blinds on windows.  Upgrades fan in living will work wonderfully in unison with ac to keep you comfortable as can be.  Off kitchen formal dining area as well as potential breakfast bar.  Living area is large, and as such can really be set up in many ways to make sure to meet your needs.

Kitchen is again, like rest of home laid out great.  Kitchen does offer plenty of cabinets, and even counter space.  Counters are formica and are in good condition.  Good size kitchen island and flooring in kitchen is tiled throughout.  Kitchen does have a breakfast nook, and does have a door leading directly to the garage.  I find this to be perfect, especially since groceries which come from the car go directly to kitchen, so it is close and quick.  The sale of this home does include all the kitchen appliances as pictured above such as the built in microwave, electric stove and the refrigerator.

Some nice things about this home, that may not be seen from most photos.  The ac thermostat control is not your cheapy thermostat, it is a higher end digital control.  Nice!  Also most windows also have a upgraded blind.  The back door to yard, of course does not have the upgraded blind.  Large indoor laundry area, with cabinets to help with storage of your laundry items.

This is a popular floor plan, especially since it has a good layout and has 4 bedrooms.  While I would not describe this home as a split floor plan, I would say that it has laid out the rooms very well.  All rooms are decent size and have great amount of closet space.  2 of the bedrooms also offer closet with mirrored sliding doors, so one can make sure to be dressed to please before stepping out.  The bedroom next to the master also has a walk in closet, almost the size of the master bedroom.  Master bedroom of course offers a walk in closet as well as the master bath.  Master bath does have two sinks, the his and hers.

Nice back yard has been professionally landscaped.  Grass back yard with automatic times for the irrigation system.  One nice feature which current home owners started is a small garden.  When I say small, I do mean it, it is not very large at all.  Yet, it does have the distinction of giving some good vegetables off to the home owners.  Home does have a covered back patio, and owners have added a little extra concrete area where they currently have a grill.  Would be very easy for next home owner to custom build a grill, or place their very own b-b-q grill.

This is a great option for a 4 bedroom home.  5444 W Shumway Farm Rd Laveen Az 85339 is in my opinion, a great choice for an affordable home in the area, and at a great price.

MORE see below


Home is a large french country style chateau with about 5200 square feet of livable space.  This is a 5 bedroom estate with 4 bathrooms.  Home was originally built in 1986, and was a custom built home.  Being a realtor I have come across the term custom built home many times in my 11 plus years of selling homes, and I can say the word “custom” does not get used correctly.  I have seen many subdivision homes (maybe higher end) which have been called custom homes, yet they are just a higher version of a cookie cutter home.  FOLKS!!! This home is not a cookie cutter home, this home is VERY unique one of a kind home and as such is a true custom home in its very definition.


Complete horse set up facility on this 4 acre estate.  The home is definitely a horse property and equine estate. High end barn with sliding entry door, plenty of storage space, 3 stalls with exit to corral and much more.  Plenty of areas to go riding right out the front gate. South mountain has over 16000 acres of trail riding, so pack a canteen and hit the trails!

The property location is by far one of the most premium locations in all of Phoenix.  The estate sits at one of the highest locations along the South Mountain preserve, with views to most areas of the valley.  On a clear day you might even see Flagstaff………, just kidding.  Yet, this home does have great city views, great valley views of the valley of the sun.  As it borders the preserve no other homes will be built bordering this home, the way the area sits, it likely the way it will be for years to come.

5 bedroom custom chateau.  Home is a french chateau style home with french provincial feeling to it, and great use of wood and high end carpentry.  This can truly be seen in the custom built library with built in book cases, wood flooring, words can’t do it justice.  Large master bedroom with space for the largest of furniture, as the photos can show large furniture is already in there.  Master also does have a sizable walk in closet and its very own personal work out room!  Master bathroom does also include a habitat master bath!  

Home is a split level floor plan with many areas to explore.  Master is located on the top floor as are 2 other bedrooms as well.  Library, dining area, kitchen, pantry, breakfast nook and solariom are all on the mid level floor.  Large laundry area, storage, garage and another other bedrooms are on the lower floor.  Home has several balconies where one can enjoy the morning, day or evening. Many of the bedrooms have their own balcony as well as the exit from solarium, exit from the kitchen, outside the library and more.

Kitchen is flat out, just cool!  Kitchen has old brick fireplace, large kitchen island with granite counter, lots of cabinets (custom), dumb waiter, copper fixtures, custom cooking oven and stove top.  Again, folks, this is a home you just must see as words can’t describe it.

Large pool about 80 feet long, one of longest/biggest in Arizona for private property.  Pool area does consist of large deck with gazebo, and fountain leading down from home area to pool.   Many custom features to pool as well, such as artistic designs along pool line.  Old style outhouse/bath house which has been converted to an outdoor bar and pool house bathroom.  This does include a shower area and bathroom.

The grounds are both a combination of natural desert and classic roman garden architecture.  There are multiple outdoor fountain and even fireplaces.  Several decks as well, gardens and even a vegetable garden area.

South Mountain Freeway – Update

This information provided directly from ADOT.


South Mountain Freeway agreement delivers lower cost, shorter timeline

Construction to start this summer on largest highway project in state history


PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation will deliver the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway three years sooner and at a cost savings topping $100 million by taking an innovative approach to selecting the team to design, build and maintain the highway.


“This is another example of government working at the speed of business to save taxpayer money and improve the lives of Arizonans,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “Thanks to hard work and collaboration, the South Mountain Freeway will be completed under budget and faster than expected.”


The Department of Transportation finalized a public-private partnership Friday with the project team – Connect 202 Partners – that will serve in all three roles.


“This first-of-its-kind highway contract in Arizona has not only reduced the overall cost but allowed ADOT to accelerate the entire project, meaning motorists will be able to benefit from this critical freeway sooner,” ADOT Director John Halikowski said. “That’s especially important in light of transportation needs today and into the future.”


The 22-mile freeway, expected to open by late 2019, will provide a long-planned direct link between the East Valley and West Valley and a much-needed alternative to Interstate 10 through downtown Phoenix. Approved twice by Maricopa County voters, the South Mountain Freeway will complete the Loop 202 and Loop 101 freeway system.


Connect 202 Partners will design and build the freeway corridor and provide maintenance for 30 years after construction. The team consists of Fluor Enterprises Inc., Granite Construction Co. and Ames Construction Inc., with Parsons Brinckerhoff Inc. as the lead designer.


The fixed $916 million contract for design and construction makes this the largest highway project in state history.


The amount required for the overall project is approximately $122 million less than anticipated because of innovative approaches Connect 202 Partners proposed for construction and engineering, as well as reducing the amount of property that must be acquired for the freeway.


While the phrase public-private partnership may evoke visions of a toll road, that isn’t the case with the South Mountain Freeway. Instead, this agreement, ADOT’s first for a highway project, provides the advantages of lower cost and shorter timeline that come from having one team not only design and build the freeway, but maintain it afterward.


The original plan called for construction of the freeway as nine individual projects. But after receiving an unsolicited proposal for a public-private partnership in 2013, ADOT decided to seek proposals using that approach.


Connect 202 Partners was selected as the “best value” developer in December 2015 following an extensive review that led to a final list of three prospective developer teams in March 2015. ADOT encouraged these teams to propose innovative concepts that would save time and money while adhering to all environmental commitments.


Innovations proposed by Connect 202 Partners include optimizing the design of the freeway to reduce the amount of right-of-way needed and improving efficiency by reducing the amount of earth needing to be hauled by trucks. The project will include construction of a 15-foot-wide multi-use trail along the existing Pecos Road alignment from 40th Street to 17th Avenue.


Even with the lower cost made possible by a public-private partnership agreement, motorists will enjoy the same modern amenities they have been accustomed to for decades, including a high-capacity freeway with four lanes of traffic in each direction including HOV lanes, rubberized asphalt, access-controlled interchanges and aesthetics that reflect the nearby communities.


The South Mountain Freeway, which will be paid for with state, federal and voter-approved regional transportation funding, has been a critical part of the region’s transportation plans since voters approved the Maricopa Association of Governments’ Regional Freeway Program in 1985. It also was part of the Regional Transportation Plan that Maricopa County voters approved in 2004.


“The award provides cost certainty on the largest transportation project in the Regional Transportation Plan,” said Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane, chair of the Maricopa Association of Governments. “We now know the range of savings we can put toward the rest of the freeway program.”


Halikowski said support from the Maricopa Association of Governments, city of Phoenix and Federal Highway Administration has been essential to advancing the South Mountain Freeway.
