Property description

Please note that we do not advertise on Craigslist. Any ads on Craigslist or any other 'free' services are not by the homeowner.

We are in a secluded neighborhood that embraces the desert experience. Our house sits on the most private and best cul-de-sac lot surrounded by natural desert on three sides. It is scenic and peaceful with desert views.

Split bedrooms provide separation between the master bedroom and the rest of the house. This is a light and airy house with tons of glass in the family room, kitchen, dining room and master bedroom, overlooking a desert oasis yard. The covered patio and built in BBQ complete the pool area as a place to mingle or just relax. And of course this house is in impeccable condition, completely renovated with love.

This property is exceptionally well located just off Scottsdale Road, yet presenting an uninterrupted desert view with privacy. Within 10 miles you will find 18 golf courses, including Troon North and The Boulders. If you tire of playing golf why not attend dinner at the Four Seasons or enjoy the scenery at Blue Martini?

This property has a lot to offer everyone, whether you are an avid golfer, nightlife aficionado, mountain or desert hiker, or just want to linger by the pool with an Edgar Allan Poe.

Car: Necessary

Scottsdale Vista Estates is located in the very north part of Scottsdale, away from the hustle and bustle. Now you probably think you have to go far for shopping and restaurants, but nothing could be further from the truth; the difference is that up here in 'the north' we value the genuine desert experience so the the low-slung shopping centers are hidden away behind trees and cacti to provide that serene feeling of being in the desert, even though the ice cream shop is just around the corner.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: This is us, Kay and Håkan. We bought our Scottsdale house in 2012 as our second home and planned retirement home. When we are not at Casa Hopi we are either on the road or at our offices in Seattle, WA. We are both in the IT industry, which is also how we met a long time ago; Kay and Håkan worked for a US software company in the UK and Sweden respectively. After living together for several years in London we were both transferred to the corporate headquarters in the US. We have since left the company to continue our careers elsewhere.

Why the Owner Chose Scottsdale Vista Estates:
We had a range of criteria for our house, the first that it should have good privacy with views and still be close enough to shops and conveniences. We think we found the perfect property in a well manicured community that embraces the desert experience but still less than 2 miles from high end shopping.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is situated at the end of a cul-du-sac with the largest desert garden and desert on three sides of the house. Desert hiking and biking start behind the property and within 10 minutes drive there are over 15 golf courses and hundreds of miles of trails.
