Property description

Welcome to our 2,400 sf Spanish colonial-style retreat – located in the beautiful community of Verrado. With it’s walkable, tree-lined streets, abundant neighborhood parks, beautiful community gathering spaces – including Main Street and the Raven Golf Club (ranked by Golf Digest as the #1 course in Phoenix in May 2008) – it’s sure to provide the perfect destination for your next holiday! In fact, Verrado was named one of the top places in the Valley to call home (Phoenix Magazine - August 2013).

Our new vacation home is nestled in a quiet, park-like setting with expansive views of the White Tank Mountains. There are all new furnishings as of August 2012 and the floor plan is very open with lots of windows so you can enjoy all the natural beauty the desert has to offer. It backs onto a natural wash with heavily planted area (saguaros, palo verde and acacia trees) to provide for a very private stay.

Our home features a large master bedroom with king bed, private master bath, and large walk-in closet. There are three guest bedrooms located on the opposite side of the home to assure your privacy: 1 queen bed, 1 twin bunk bed with desk, 1 queen futon with 46' HDTV, AppleTV and Wii. The guest bathroom has a double sink and features a separate toilet/shower room.

The great room, kitchen, and dining area are conveniently located in the middle of the home. The upgraded kitchen includes a large island, wood cabinets, and stainless steel appliances (electric stove/cooktop, built-in microwave, fridge with water/ice dispenser). It is fully stocked for all of your dining and entertaining needs. The dining area features a large farm-house style dining table that seats eight. The kitchen island includes three counter stools to provide additional seating.

The great room has a 65” HD Plasma (running Direct TV digital cable), a BluRay disc player and features an excellent home theatre surround sound system. We also have Apple TV and Internet TV. There is a reclining sofa, recliner chair, reclining love seat, coffee table and two end tables. Our front den also has two reading chairs and an office desk.

Our home includes a wireless music distribution system (SONOS) that plays music in the great room, den, kitchen and outside patio. The music can played and controlled through an iPhone, iPod or iPad as well as other sources. Wi-fi internet access is also available and ceiling fans are located throughout the inside and outside of the house.

The backyard is exceptionally private and provides a panoramic, stunning view of the White Tank and Estrella Mountains. It is beautifully landscaped and has two tables, 10 chairs and 2 chaise lounges. There is a Weber gas BBQ grill, water fountain, fire pit, and landscape lighting. Perfect for outdoor entertaining or simply enjoying sunrise and sunset over the mountains. Ceiling fans keep you cool all day long.

We have many books (take one, leave one), board games, basketball, wiffle ball, and skateboards. Also provided is a notebook of things to do in the community.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have vacationed in Arizona for years. It started when we were kids on yearly vacations during the Summer, but now we try to escape at least two to three times a year to visit family who live in the area.

Why the Owner Chose Buckeye:
When we moved away from our home state after college, we always dreamed of having a home close to family. And, knowing that someday we would retire to Arizona, Verrado provides the perfect escape!! It very much reminds us of the Wisconsin community my husband and I grew up in. We love the walkable, tree-lined streets, diverse landscaping, numerous walking/biking trails, and community gathering places. The downtown area is within walking distance and provides access to everything you could need. The home is also conveniently located to give you quick access to more abundant recreational and cultural activities in and around the Phoenix area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is nestled in a quiet, park-like setting. The backyard is exceptionally private and provides a panoramic, stunning view of the White Tank and Estrella Mountains. There are all new furnishings as of August 2012 and the home provides everything that the vacationeer could need.
