Ahwatukee is a beautiful community located in the Ahwatukee Foothills, featuring fantastic scenery around every turn.

Bound by I-10 to the east, South Mountain to the north and the Gila Indian Reservation to the west and south, Ahwatukee continues to attract residents wishing to enjoy a quality of life that is unparalleled. The community features easy access to downtown Phoenix, which is just 15 minutes away, allowing residents an easy commute to work, for a museum visit, an evening at the symphony or to watch one of the professional sports teams play to a hometown crowd. Sky Harbor Airport is also nearby, providing easy access for anyone traveling. Ahwatukee is highly regarded for its public school districts, pre-schools and private schools around the area.
