I moved to Arizona 50 years ago along with my parents. This is the first house they bought all those years ago. It was located in the far northwest side of Phoenix right on what was the edge of town back in those days. Now the city limits go much further north and west. The house was brand new and in a new neighborhood. Soon after moving in, mom and dad had a pool installed in the back yard. Mom loved to swim and believe it or not, so did the family dog, a very large St. Bernard. I lived here for a couple of years before moving into an apartment with a friend.
About 15 years ago, I drove by this house and the whole neighborhood was looking a bit sad and run down. I was happy to see that it has recovered and is once again looking like a great place to live.
