Property description

You have plenty of lovely homes to choose from for your upcoming stay in Scottsdale. While we grant that you may likely have an enjoyable visit in any number of these alternatives, we have designed this rental experience to be unforgettable for you and your loved ones. Being avid travelers ourselves, we know firsthand the central importance that a beautiful and unique home can play in making your vacation a resounding success.

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 very well may see wildlife from the patio, or witness the pitchy howls of roving coyotes (don't worry, you're all safe)!

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/den with Migun massage bed, 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, la movie selection, HDTVs with Blue Ray means you'll enjoy your stay.

We are so proud of all there is to see and do in our part of Scottsdale! Make sure to zoom out on the map when you reach the "Location" portion of this listing to see some of the nearby attractions. Sassi restaurant is a MUST for gourmet Italian lovers! The Tom's Thumb, Pemberton, Fraesfield or Pinnacle Peak hikes are ALL within ten minutes of the home and offer the best walking experiences that Scottsdale has to offer. There are golf courses nearby such as Troon North, as well as horseback riding.

Amazing Optional Amenity: Village Health Club Access (extra fee varies with length of stay and number of occupants). 20 minutes from the home (but nearby to other attractions and restaurants), gain access to Arizona's most exclusive fitness club: the Village at DC Ranch. This magnificent 81,000 square foot club provides all the fitness and sports amenities you desire, including two temperature controlled pools. The club also features a full service day spa and hair salon, a separate wing for children which includes a junior basketball court, kid's club, nursery and outdoor play area, mountain biking featuring organized rides throughout area, a member's business office and private meeting rooms, award-winning cafe and pro shop boutique. This club is one of the best things going in all of Scottsdale! We definitely recommend it, particularly if pool access is important.

Car: Necessary

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.

 

Owner info

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.
