About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Pool, Art-filled, Pine-tree shaded yard

The Hilary Hoffmann House is not another beige Scottsdale VRBO rental. Brightly colored and two-years into a multi-year restoration, the house sleeps six in three bedrooms and up to eight people total.

Textile art and collected paintings decorate every room in the house. These are original art ranging in size from 10” to eight feet. The Hilary Hoffmann House is as much a destination as a wonderful place to stay when visiting the Scottsdale area.

Close to Kierland Commons and Mayo Clinic, we are also near Scottsdale airport and are a great place for visitors attending local tournaments and sporting events. It is also perfect for amateurs, professionals, fans and support staff.

This is our vacation home, and includes the amenities of a home, including a brand new sound system and connected 40” TV for streaming your favorite services, playing DVDs, BluRay, or OTA TV. The Hilary Hoffmann House is a great place for entertaining, whether for a few days or a few months.

Our kitchen includes a glass top stove, Keurig individual coffee maker and whole pot drip coffee machine, microwave, professional quality Henckel knives, complete dishes, serving dishes, wine glasses, and ice cream maker and bread machine: everything you need to live and entertain well.

Dine in shade under the forty-year old pine trees, or by the pool under an eleven-foot offset umbrella. For indoor dining, enjoy the eat-in kitchen or the formal dining room off the formal living room. A large family room with 6.1 sound system adjoins the kitchen.

As a restoration, The Hilary Hoffmann House retains the wonderful details often discarded in the rush to beige. The house still has a sunken living room, sunken tubs and the original style ‘‘crystal’’ faucets, which have all been replaced with new.

The backyard privacy wall has two extra courses of block for added privacy.

No pets are allowed.

Because of abundance of art, much of it painting, we feel that Hilary’s home is not appropriate for children.

Your temporary home is a pleasant walk to Sandpiper Park, a five-minute drive to Safeway, shopping and restaurants, less than fifteen minutes to the Mayo Clinic and five minutes to Kierland Commons with the hottest restaurants and best shopping in Phoenix.

Do you like golf? Courses in the area include: Starfire Golf Club, Stone Creek Golf Club, TPC, Camelback, and Gainey Ranch Golf Club.

The Hilary Hoffmann House is two-years into a multi-year restoration. You may find a few small things that are not perfect yet: The pool is due for replastering in 2018; two drawers in the back bedroom need new slides, and other small things, which we don’t believe hinder the enjoyment of this wonderful property.

Because it is a new restoration, many things are new, like the 40" Sony Bravia connected television, matching Sony Receiver, connected Sony BluRay player, and powered Sony Base Speaker. The dishwasher is brand new as is the 11-foot umbrella, and outdoor pool furniture.

Every inside and outside surface of the house (with the exception of the front door) has been newly painted, and every electrical outlet, switch and switch cover has been replaced and is brand new.

The master bedroom and front bedroom have queen beds. The rear bedroom contains two twins. All of the beds have new mattresses and bedding.

The stock glassware and dishes are all new. The Hilary Hoffmann house also includes serving platters and other entertainment crockery that are unique pieces of art, many made and signed by with the distinctive Hilary Hoffmann double-H signature. All other pieces are individually signed by the craftsperson.

The Hilary Hoffmann House is as much a destination as an accommodation. We’re sure you’ll enjoy your stay.

Multi-month discounts are available.

Why Jennifer Severin chose Raskin Estates

The Hilary Hoffman House is the Phoenix home of my mother, retired Atlanta-based artist and art collector, Hilary Hoffmann.

The home reflects Hilary's unerring eye for color and is decorated primarily with Hilary's textile art.

The pieces decorating the home range in size from under one-foot square to more than 6 x 8 feet, including one of Hilary's larger and more admired pieces: a self-portrait of Hilary and her partner of 30 years, Don.

The painted floors in much of the house (tiles in the rest) not only tie the house together, but also may make for a less allergenic home.

While most of Hilary's ceramic work is displayed at the Nellie Donagan House in Port Townsend, Washington, examples of Hilary's ceramic work can be found in the serving plates and platters that you may, if you're careful, use for guests and special occasions.

The abundant artwork is one of the reasons we don’t rent the Hilary Hoffman House to families with children.

The house retains its sunken living room, sunken tubs, and renewed "crystal" bathroom faucets. Recently replaced and updated heating and cooling make this renovation an infrastructure modernization.

The full-wall mural in the living room, signed and dated 1993, and a small self portrait hanging in the hallway are works that demonstrate Hilary's cross medium facilities in more representational art.

The Hilary Hoffmann House reflects the sensibilities of an artist in her creative years, who believed that art was meant to be lived with and enjoyed. Hilary’s voracious reading habits are represented by about 25% of her collection of books, the majority of which are about art, and the mechanics of creating art, together with a broad selection of travel writing and international cookbooks.

The high privacy wall allows unobserved sunning, dining and entertaining.

Situated on a corner lot in a quiet neighborhood this peaceful home was and is Hilary’s southwest retreat. We’re sure you’ll enjoy it as much as she does.

What makes this house unique

The Hilary Hoffmann House is colorful, comfortable and convenient to popular Kierland Commons, to both Mayo Clinics, to historic Old Town Scottsdale, and to TPC Scottsdale.
