New River: Isolation, Space & Amazing Views

New River: Isolation, Space & Amazing Views

Homes here surround the stunning Gavilan Peak and offer mountain views in many directions. New River abuts the very north edge of Phoenix, along I-17. The lifestyle is rural, yet it’s all moments from the shopping areas of Anthem.

Unlike HOA communities, there are few shared community amenities in New River.

New River includes many custom homes on large lots. Residents are not subject to a homeowners’ association, so there is significant variety of architecture and landscaping.

The Outlets at Anthem and a Walmart are just 5-10 minutes away, as are the many restaurants and retail businesses in Anthem. Additional shopping districts are about 20 minutes south: the Shops at Norterra and the Happy Valley Towne Center. Four regional parks that offer hiking, fishing and boating are all within 30-minute drives, including Lake Pleasant, just 25 minutes away.

New River is also perfectly situated as a gateway to the north (think Sedona and Flagstaff) yet just a half-hour or so from downtown Pheonix. Sky Harbor International Airport is 40-miles to the south.
