This high-end desert retreat, situated on a one-acre lot in the quiet drama of the outdoors, provides access to the best Scottsdale has to offer. The three-tiered pavered back patio with view fence grants you unhindered views of majestic Four Peaks as it broods over the Superstition Mountains. You may very well observe wildlife from the patio, or witness the pitchy howls of roving coyotes (don't worry, you're all safe, including your pets)!
The home experiences very little traffic noise, yet it is close to Dynamite Rd. Beautiful mature landscaping, built-in BBQ, a fire pit for fun evenings, a shaded patio, and comfortable furniture means you can enjoy a meal in the beautiful outdoors, day or night. Like we said - unforgettable!
The private courtyard features a fountain and desert garden with furniture: perfect for sunbathing (with or without tan lines!), reading and relaxing.
GRAND PLAYER PIANO with a large range of discs, from classical to show tunes, jazz to the Beatles!
Full gourmet kitchen (650 square feet), office, spacious living room with bar, plush master quarters, and very relaxing bedrooms make for a delightful living experience. All mattresses are extremely comfortable. Hi speed internet access, games, books, movie selection, HDTVs with Blue Ray means you'll enjoy your stay.

We are located in the northeast corner of Scottsdale, which has plenty to see and do! This is a perfect address to experience the West in its astounding and natural glory. We live in a small neighborhood with homes that were built over the last ten years. The unencumbered views of the mountains to the East are unforgettable. We're about 1/3 of a mile south of Dynamite Road, so there is very little road noise. It is quiet and expansive. About four miles up are beautiful horse ranches. Our home is perfect for dining in the back patio, or hiking right out the gate in the back of our yard.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We greatly enjoy the beauty of Arizona, and have many family members in the nearby town of Fountain Hills that also draws us to the area. We have found ourselves moving around quite a bit for work and further education during the last several years, yet have been able to spend a good bit of time in Scottsdale as well. We consider ourselves food and wine enthusiasts, excited to try cuisine from most any country. We also enjoy the outdoors, and manage to do a lot of camping in Arizona's mountains, or nearby California, Utah or Colorado.
Why the Owner Chose Rio Verde Foothills, Scottsdale, AZ, USA:
Our property is very unique in that it is extraordinarily peaceful, with its mountain views, and large expanses of open land, all within 15-25 minutes off all that North Scottsdale, Carefree, and CaveCreek have to offer. We are the original owners and fell in love with the luxury of the home, combined with its practicality and spaciousness.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
While looking for our home in Arizona, were were primarily attracted to the peacefulness and quiet drama of the desert. We have enjoyeded many nights of grilling surf and turf, turning on our player piano, and sitting outdoors with a glass of wine under the bright stars. Our area of the desert is at a slightly higher elevation than the rest of the valley, and so we also loved that the temperatures can be up to 10 degrees cooler than most of Phoenix! In the summer, this means cooler nights, where you can still enjoy the outdoors.
