About the Property

2 BR plus den/office/library, +2Bath Condo. Views fairway, green, Pinnacle Peak

Lucky guests have already booked our home for winter 2016-2017! Come give us a try for Summer 2016!

Our wonderful home overlooks the highly regarded Troon golf course and the hugely over-rated 'Pinnacle Peak'. The setting is quiet, impressive wild life abounds, but close to the sophisticated amenities of the Scottsdale area.

We professionally decorated in October, 2013, and everything is to primary residence standards, or better.

High ceilings give a very spacious and elegant feel.

Master bedroom is oversized and gives plenty of space for the king size bed, plus a nice window-side chair and ottoman. Our mattress is state of the art hypoallergenic, no coils...no motion transmission. One side is designed to be a bit firmer than the other. Large flatscreen TV and dvd. Large walk-in closet. View faces south, and gets warm sun in winter, sun is overhead in summer.

The master joins the bath with soaking tub and glass shower. Double basin sinks on travertine top. Commode room is separate.

The second bedroom is currently arranged with two extra long twins, but can be joined and bedded as a king. Fantastic premium mattresses. Flat screen TV and DVD player. Walk-in closet. Mountain view.

In some areas, our 'library' would be called 'Bedroom 3'. We use it as an library/den/office. Nice desk sits in front of the large north facing window, overlooking mountain desert terrain; it may kill your powers to concentrate on business. There is a daybed, again with
a premium twin mattress.

The large living space has a conversation-style leather sofa, coffee table, sitting chair, window-side game table and chairs, gas fireplace, and of course, the 55 inch flat screen plus dvd player.

The living space glides to dining area. Table is has leaves for 10, but set now for 6. It looks to the patio.

It is easy to serve the guests from the granite bar of the kitchen. All appliances are brand new except the gas stove and dishwasher. This kitchen is equipped for farm style Thanksgiving, not meager stuff one frequently finds in second homes. In addition to the normal things you'd expect in a better grade kitchen, there is a corner sitting area for the cooking supervisor.

The guest bath is fine, but not memorable.

Patio faces south, and, being on the second level, the landscaping of the golf course provides an atmosphere of seclusion, but the sun warms nicely this south-facing niche.

We think this to be the perfect place for a couple to set up an outpost in nearly guaranteed sunshine, plus invite friends and family. But, just as well, a group of athletes might enjoy our oversized everything.

The property is high above the valley floor, at about 800 meters (2500 ft). In the summer it is 3 or 4 degrees C cooler than Phoenix. Air is always fresher than in the valley but particularly in winter, when the Phoenicians fire up their fireplaces with horribly expensive low grade firewood.

The community is gated, quiet, and very much under populated. The community pool is a couple of minutes walk. It is small but much under-used.

There are only 30 condos, and several of our neighbors are not here regularly, so if you don't want to be cheek to jowl with vacationers, this is your place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Aging corporate wage-slave and spectacular educator.

Why the Owner Chose Troon North, Scottsdale, AZ, USA:
World renown golf course attracts interesting people. 300 days of sunshine, close to the 'over the top' retail and dining opporunities, downtown, in Scottsdale, but out far enough to see bobcats and coyotes from the patio. I am a lawn freak, and now I look over the most carefully preened green on the planet and never push the mower.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Others would quickly say 'Pinnacle Peak!', but this is a triumph of marketing over topography. In truth (really, now), we like all 12 months here. That story about 'dry heat' is true. We prefer 108 F here, in the summer, to our east coast sea level home at 88 F. Private Troon North community park within walking distance. Well maintained tennis, basketball courts, kids play zone, fountain.
