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 Talon Retreat

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.

Very well-appointed house, very clean and enjoyable. The pool is just starting to get warm enough to swim in. We really enjoyed our stay.

We had four couples staying in this home and it is awesome at accommodating that group. Great bedrooms, great layout, great location, quiet neighborhood, and all the amenities you could possibly ask for. Five stars!

Was a beautiful home beyond anywhere we have rented before, beds were comfortable, and the entire home was clean, pool was so amazing, half court basketball was super cool with several balls available (air pump and needle in laundry room). House was stocked with everything you needed. Direct TV available on all 8 tvs, including by the pool and outside dining area. Close to shopping and grocery store. Super quite, safe neighborhood. Highly recommend this home.

Great home made for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed in this beautiful Grayhawk home for 4 nights. This home is absolutely gorgeous! The living areas of the home are spectacular; with beautiful views of the pool. The pool was a huge hit and the basketball court was really fun for grand kids because the basket can be lowered for the little ones. Kitchen was everything we hoped for with everything we needed for cooking meals. The master bedroom was gigantic with a fabulous soaking tub and shower. Casita was a perfect, quiet retreat too. You will not be disappointed with this home! We especially loved all the recommendations for restaurants in the area, we ate dinners in Grayhawk each night and all were perfect. We highly recommend this home and we will go back!
