The location is perfect! Easy access to all major freeways, shops all around but isn't too noisy. Safe people and a great area for children!

The North Mountain area has a nature reserve on one side and a North Mountain park on the other. It has areas that seem like you're in the country - yet you're two miles away from excellent shopping opportunities and five miles away from excellent restaurants and entertainment venues. It's a family-friendly, easy to navigate beautiful little area that is safe and pretty.
I live in the Sunnyslope Area and it is a great place to live. Not far from downtown, easy to get to the highways, lots of restaurants around, etc. The Elementary schools aren’t great, but Sunnyslope High School is fantastic
