The Holm Group has recently added a new featured community to their website. Check out Fountain Hills below.
The town of Fountain Hills sits 500 feet above the capital city in the eastern slope of the McDowell Mountains and is only about 20 square miles in its entirety. With less than 23,000 residents, Fountain Hills is the perfect place to escape from the urban sprawl that is occurring in parts of Scottsdale and Phoenix. The city of Scottsdale is located just west of Fountain Hills and is only about 15 minutes away from the heart of Scottsdale. Other valley cities are easily reached with access to the Beeline HWY, as well as the 202.
The community’s most valuable asset is its beauty. Incredible views and natural terrain provide for a wide range of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, boating and some of the more challenging and picturesque golf courses you’ll find in the country.
Fountain Hills is also home to some of the valley’s premier golf courses, including: Golf Club at Eagle Mountain, SunRidge Canyon Golf Club, We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, and Fire Rock Golf Club. If you play golf and you haven’t played at one of these courses, what are you waiting for?
In addition to the assets above, Fountain Hills is known for its world famous water fountain, which rises into the air 10 feet higher than the Washington Monument. The fountain sits in the middle of a lake surrounded by a 32 acre park at the eastern end of the Avenue of the Fountains.
The fountain has been attracting visitors from all over the world for nearly 30 years, first activating on December 15, 1970. For years following its introduction to the world Guiness Book of World Records recognized it as the “worlds highest” fountain.
Fountain Hills also offers a variety of festivals throughout the year including: Fountain Hills Arts & Crafts, and Fountain Hills Great Fair.
