Escape to luxury in our quiet cul-de-sac ... it's as if the majestic views, the perfect weather, and the starry nights are all yours, and yours alone!!!! Vacation in paradise and enjoy the luxury of our custom home, overlooking the tenth fairway and green of the fabulous Desert Canyon Golf Course along with a breathtaking view of Red Mountain. Enjoy the ease and economy of flying into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and your short drive northeast up the Beeline Highway to our beautiful retreat. Located on a private, yet convenient cul-de-sac, just minutes from Mayo Clinic, Ft. McDowell and some of Arizona’s premier golf courses and shopping/dining experiences, the contemporary, open floor plan with high ceilings provides the perfect spot to sit by the Mini-Pebble heated pool or entertain friends with the 60” Plasma TV and wet bar or the 65” DLP TV and Brunswick pool table. Gather around the high-top table to enjoy a game of cards, or relax with a movie from our large DVD library. For the music enthusiasts, enjoy our vast CD collection or better yet, if there’s a pianist in the group, let them serenade you on the beautiful ivory baby grand piano. Enjoy the beautiful summer nights on the 600+ square feet of covered patio or sit in the spacious Spa and make a wish on the beautiful starry skies above Fountain Hills, a wonderful community centered around its world famous fountain, where street lights are the exception and quiet relaxation is the rule.

The three bedroom, split floor plan features an oriental master suite with a reading corner where you can get lost in your favorite book , or simply enjoy the view out the window overlooking our large desert lot and the 10th green of the beautiful Desert Canyon Golf Course. Walk out the slider and take a dip in the pool, then return to the fabulous master bath, complete with a custom copper jetted tub, double vanity and Rain Forest Marble/Glass shower with Grohe double shower head.

Awake from a peaceful night’s sleep on the designer King bed in the second bedroom, and walk out your slider to enjoy your morning coffee on your private patio, watching the sunrise over the Superstition Mountains. Or collapse in the third bedroom onto the Italian leather contemporary King bed.

Enjoy the gourmet kitchen complete with premium appliances, custom cabinetry and exquisite Verde Bamboo slab granite countertops with full backsplash. Sit at the large island and “supervise” the cook, or make your own ice cream with the built-in fabulous Bosch Kitchen Machine. The large laundry room features premium, large capacity front load washer and dryer, as well as a large utility sink.

Take a short walk up the hill to enjoy the fabulous (and incredibly reasonable) Sunday Brunch Buffet on the patio at DC Bar & Grill, featuring Eggs Benedict, Huevos Rancheros, Homemade Rolls, Apple Smoked Bacon, and Bread Pudding ... Simply Delightful!!! Or consider venturing a few minutes into town for great food and live music on Friday & Saturday nights at the warm and rustic Saddle Bronc Grill on Saguaro Boulevard.

We have tried to create a Spa-like retreat with custom artwork and furnishings, slab granite countertops and travertine floors throughout, but it is our home ... You are precious and valued guests in our home and we will strive to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

About The Owner

We are proud to be in Arizona and loving life in one of the most beautiful states in our great country!!!

We have four beautiful children, six grandchildren, and three beautiful border collies named Toby, Guinness, & Bailey (Spoiled like a grandchildren, since we're empty-nesters) Our profile picture is from our oldest daughter's wedding, celebrated at this house and the Steakhouse @ Desert Canyon, just a short walk away.

Our son, Austin, is a proud Arizona State graduate and helps with our home when we're out of town. He started his own business and purchased a home in Tempe, where he and Amy live with two border collies and a cat.

We began Equine Medicine in 1988, and over the years have raised, shown, and raced Thoroughbreds, Morgans, and Quarter Horses.

We love the beautiful scenery and the wildlife of the desert. We love to play golf and tennis, yet our true passion is time spent at the lake with our family & friends -- and of course, Toby, Guinness & Bailey swimming.

We love the terrain and scenery of our quiet desert retreat ... the mountains, the hills, the wildlife, the peaceful neighborhood, and the convenience to great food, golf and shopping, even medical care at the world-renowned Scottsdale Mayo Clinic

We love sports (especially football), movies, music, good food and great friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Fountain Hills

In 1999, we wanted a warm weather home and everyone told us Fountain Hills was THE spot in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We spent a week looking around the metro area without limits...drove over 1000 miles and looked at many houses and areas, yet we always were drawn back to Fountain Hills.

We wanted grass without having to maintain it, thus Desert Canyon Golf Course for our backyard.

We loved Red Mountain and the Superstitions, thus our phenomenal view.

We wanted the smaller community feel, yet the amenities of a major metropolitan area without having to live amidst the big city chaos, thus our quiet cul-de-sac without street lights and traffic.

We wanted the convenience, economy and access of Sky Harbor International Airport, an easy 20-30 minute drive from the house.

We wanted the slightly cooler temperatures and cleaner air the hills provide.

What makes this house unique

Lots of wildlife on our large desert lot along the beautifully manicured fairway and green, just outside the pool area.

Incredible sunrises and sunsets

Walk to the Desert Canyon Golf Course and enjoy a round of golf or dine at the exquisite Steakhouse at Desert Canyon.

Gorgeous Home, Great Location, Amazing Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the incredible pleasure of staying at this beautiful property 6 times to date and we are already booked for our 7th stay this coming March!! I think our continued repeat visits to such a wonderful home speaks volumes! The owners have consistently provided the best accommodations you could ever ask for and in addition they are awesome people! The location of the property on a golf course is fantastic! The views from both the front and the back of the house are breathtaking! The patio, pool and hot tub are exceptional and the large grill is great to use for those evenings in. We are extremely grateful that the owners Herb & Meredith have continued to offer their exquisite home in Fountain Hills for us to enjoy and create some of our most fond family memories! Finding this wonderful property, enjoying all of our stays and getting to know Herb and Meredith has truly been a blessing for us! You guys are the best! Love, Steph, Craig & the boys

Fabulous property and fantastic owners!

  • 5 of 5

This a wonderful vacation home in a beautiful area with a great pool, lovely views, and many extras from paper products to dvd’s. It is well stocked and nicely furnished and carefully maintained. We picked citrus fruit and watched hummingbirds. It is spacious and very comfortable. The owners were the best we have ever dealt with. We are arranging another stay.

Great location and property exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Herb and Meredith were fantastic.

They went above and beyond to ensure our perfect golf holiday. The property was exactly as projected on their notice.

They kept in contact and ensured we had no difficulties and pro-actively facilitated things. For example, they made arrangements and we received member privileges at Desert Canyon.

In a flash would return and already have recommended to friends.

Thanks again
