About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

You'll LOVE my house. Relax at the solar heated pool or in the courtyard near the fountain. There are mountain views all around. Enjoy the 56' TV in the great room. Have a Zen experience in the Jetted tub. Walk to town for a great breakfast and a little shopping. Hike at Spur Cross or Black Mountain. Go horseback riding at MTM Ranch and see how beautiful the Arizona desert is. Rancho Manana Golf Course is one of the best in the Phoenix area, (my opinion) and only minutes away as is The Boulders, Dove Valley and many more golf destinations. There are so many great places to dine and dance! Go try the Buffalo Chip on Friday night and see live bull riding and enjoy live music. Harold's is across the parking lot and is a great place to eat, drink and dance. Shopping in Cave Creek and Carefree is fun and unique. Scottsdale shopping and restaurants are nearby for more fun! There are great hiking opportunities nearby as well on Black Mountain and Spur Cross Conservation Area.

Keywords: Great location with all the bells and whistles! Comfy, tasteful, and ready for fun on Black Mountain. Gourmet kitchen, split bedrooms, courtyard with fountain, large patio with gas BBQ and stunning views. Tasteful and comfortable furnishings, wood floors and travertine bathrooms. Jacuzzi and walk-in shower in master.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. I love riding my horse and golfing every chance I get.

Why the Owner Chose Blue Ridge Hills, Cave Creek, AZ, USA:
I did not purchase my house with the intention of renting it. I moved to Cave Creek after wishing to for 14 years. I purchased this house while it was under construction and was able to upgrade it to the max, including custom cabinetry, wood floors, high end finishes, a courtyard and a fantastic solar heated pool. I put my stamp on it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My house in Cave Creek is an awesome place to be. You can feel like you're far away but you're close enough! I LOVE spending time outside. The views are outstanding in all directions. It's a short walk or ride to town for fun, dining and shopping. It is great for hikers and bikers. Horseback riding is a short distance away. There are many golf courses within a short distance. The shopping in Cave Creek as well as Scottsdale is great. The interior is as lovely as the exterior. I have tried to think of everything for your comfort including great linens, quality beds and bedding, soft water, luxurious master bathroom, and quality comfortable furnishings. I take great pride in my property. I just know you'll love it! Please call or email me. I don't do online reservations.
