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.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Great location to stay with side walks in the community and a quiet neighborhood. The house was great to stay in and the basketball hoop and pool kept our kids busy. The owners were very easy going as well.

Wonderful home!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and property! Loved the neighborhood and close community pool (since the one is the backyard was really cold). Great walking trails and good close restaurants, grocery shopping and nail salon. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to come back again.

Scottsdale Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Grayhawk was great! Lots of space, clean and comfortable. It is located in a gated community with security, so I thought that was a nice touch with the kids. We went in January and the temp never got above 68, so we did not get to use the pool due to it not being heated. We did go two doors down to the community heated pool and hot tub. The neighborhood was clean and everyone was very nice. We hope to be going back soon! Thanks for the nice stay/

Christmas 2016 with guests from Omaha, NE

  • 4 of 5

We easily found the house. It was very much like the picture with a few exceptions. It was very large and bedrooms ere adequately furnished, lots of things were in the house to help narrow our shopping lists. There were several TVS and they worked well. The basketball court and balls were a great outlet since T he pool wasn't heated and the weather was cool. We did notifice a ofew maintenance areas that needed attention. Two bulbs were out in the bathroom which we replaced with existing bulbs. Bulbs were out in the guest bathroom as well. The refrigerator in the garage needed to be cleaned. The fan in the MBR didn't work and the fountains in the pool didn't work and it wasn't heated which wAs disappointing. The kitchen refrigerator ice maker didn't work but the bags of ice left for us was very thoughtful. A few wooden blinds were broken and unable to use. We found a lot of trash under a sofa and left it in the laundry room cupboard in the event you needed anything. There was a bag of garbage in the trash can by the sink in the kitchen and we threw it awaY. Overall, we had a delightful time; it is a wonderful place to relax.
