About Jered Takeuchi

My wife and I moved to Arizona in 1997 after both graduating from the University of Oregon. We built this home in 2001 and are the only owners. I love to play golf and my wife loves to shop which makes this area great for us. I played basketball in college so you will notice a basketball court in the backyard. The best part is you can lower the hoop to any size you want so you can dunk! Unfortunately, I have to lower it further and further each year to feel like Lebron!

Jered Takeuchi purchased this house in 2001

Why Jered Takeuchi chose Grayhawk

We love the North Scottsdale area and the Grayhawk Community is the best for vacation or raising kids. It is very safe with a 24/7 managed guard gate along with paroling security. The location to the freeway, shops, golf, spas, restaurants, airport, etc is perfect. It has one of the highest rated elementary schools (Grayhawk Elementary) in the State.

Beautiful home in North Scottsdale

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed this home very much during our 4 day/3 night stay. The interior living area of the home is very open with high ceilings. The bedrooms were very nice and comfortable. We had some cooler weather during our stay so we did not use the pool but the other areas outside were very nice as well. We did a lot of hiking each day and the location of the property made it easily accessible in just minutes to Pinnacle Peak, Brown's Ranch and Echo Canyon. I can't recommend this property enough and hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! It was perfect and we loved everything about it. Wonderful décor and outdoor space was great. We enjoyed the basketball court and pool. We also enjoyed the hot tub, two houses down, at the community pool. The home is very conveniently located with great restaurants, shopping and golf near by. Perfect home for a relaxing golf weekend! We definitely will be back!

Absolutely stunning home and property

  • 5 of 5

Jered's home was absolutely as advertised and even more spectacular than the high expectations we had after viewing the pictures and reading other reviews. I stayed with my dad and two uncles for a Scottsdale-area golf trip and the location was perfect for getting to multiple courses and the restaurant choices within 2 to 10 minutes offer every conceivable option.

The master bedroom is totally amazing and the entire rest of the home is as comfortable as any you're likely to find. The pool was perfect for cooling off in the afternoon and the basketball court was a wonderful activity for us to enjoy in the evening and experience a little nostalgia since we hadn't shot baskets together in a long, long time.

I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a superlative property and a first-rate host. Jered, thank you for your outstanding hospitality.

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful! This was our first time staying at a rental and this place set the bar high, it is a really comfortable home for a family. The area around the house is beautiful and it is very convenient to amenities. We enjoyed our stay, and would certainly recommend it to anyone else looking for a place in the area.

Thanks for a great rental, we all loved it!
