Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home Tucked Between Cubs And Oakland A's Facilities

Come on in, set down your bags and stay awhile! Jump in the pool, soak in some Arizona sunshine (or not - we have a HUGE covered patio), catch a Spring training game at either Cubs Park or Hohokam Stadium (Oakland A's), or go play 18 at the prolific golf-courses Valley wide.

Whatever you do, we know you will love this home. Located on a quiet cul de sac. You can be anywhere from Downtown Phoenix to Tempe to Old Town Scottsdale to the Sky Harbor Airport in just a few minutes!

No expense was spared when this house was extensively renovated both inside and out in 2012 - no detail was overlooked. Welcome to our resort-home away from home!

The Gourmet Kitchen is large with nearly every amenity. The island has a 5-burner gas range and sink and is set up for seating on the one edge of the island. The surrounding counters provide additional working areas along with the convection oven, special Advantium/microwave oven, and huge refrigerator with purified water and ice in the door. There is an additional refrigerator in the utility area that has additional ice as well.

Immediately off the Kitchen is custom, banquette seating for a large group.

Also in this same Great Room as the Kitchen is the HUGE leather sectional big enough for the whole gang and a entertainment center with a 65” flat screen TV with surround sound, Blu-ray, and DirectTV.

Next to the Great Room is a room that has a beautiful billiard table and a formal dining table. It all flows seamlessly together. Even though it is a big space with wonderful high ceilings it is still warm and not cavernous.

Master bedroom #1 has a King bed with a large lounging chair for two and an en suite with a walk in shower with controls for two separate showers simultaneously. There is a jetted tub, a bidet, and a double sink.

Master Bedroom #2 has a Queen bed along with a set of trundle beds and an ensuite.

Bedroom #3 has a Full size bed.

Bedroom #4 has a Queen bed

Bedroom #5 has a Queen bed.

There is a luxury bathroom near bedrooms 3, 4 and 5 that has a double vanity, tub, and a walk-in shower

Nearly every room has dimmable lighting to set the mood for any occasion. With multiple skylights throughout house there is abundant natural lighting.

The outdoor space is certainly not overlooked in any way. There is a large covered patio with table seating in one area and another area has vignette with a couch and cushioned chairs. Ample deck allows for gathering or dining in and out of the sun/stars. A portable fire pit and chairs can be enjoyed on cool evenings. The heated pool is large enough to play or exercise. The outdoor kitchen has a large gas infrared grill, sink with hot/cold water, and a integrated beverage well to ice down some favorite refreshments. The sound system will add atmosphere to any occasion. And a high-end mist system can take the edge off on a warm, dry day. There also is a nice sized lawn area for play and contrast to the deck. Finally, since the inside has spectacular lighting, we have carried that to the outside as well to facilitate enjoyment both day and night!!

Parking is not an issue with garage space for two vehicles and driveway space for six more.

Plenty of shopping and restaurants are one to three miles nearby in Mesa Riverview or Tempe Marketplace.

This home was featured on a local TV segment called Cool Home is conjunction with a historic home tour in our neighborhood - check out the video by clicking on the video icon at the top left corner of the photo above.

For quick response to any unlikely issues, we live within a few minutes drive.

About Catherine Bartsch

We've raised our family in Mesa and love it here!

Catherine Bartsch purchased this house in 2012

Why Catherine Bartsch chose Greater Phoenix Area

With a large extended family and friends, we love to entertain so this made sense. But most of our kids have moved out so we don't use this property to it fullest and want to share it with others.

What makes this house unique

Close to it all and so many amenities - what's not to love?

This house is lovely, well appointed, roomy and filled with fun - pool, pool table, outdoor games, the works. We had all of our kids together for a wedding, it was just a perfect spot!

The perfect home and setting for my sister-in-law's Birthday

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family get together to celebrate my sister-in-law's Birthday. Most importantly she loved it. The house is beautiful with large bedrooms, large living room and most importantly the beautiful, large, and functional kitchen. We never left to go out. The patio, pool, and lounge areas worked even in the heat. Mr. and Mrs. Bartsch have thought of everything to make your stay feel like home. I especially liked the labels, thank you. I would recommend this home for any family that wants to visit, relax, and be together over several days. Thank you for sharing your home Mr. and Mrs. Bartsch.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Phoenix with our three married kids and two grandkids. The house is so peaceful and relaxed with plenty of space to go quietly retreat or hang out with the whole group. The outdoor pool and patio area are great and we loved the built in grill and beverage cooler. Everyone enjoyed hours in the pool outside and playing billiards inside.

We loved that basic spices and condiments were already stocked in the kitchen and pantry - they thought of everything!

Our kids thanked us several times for such a great place to stay in. We would love to come back and do it again!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Absolutely perfect for a family get together!!! The pool was amazing, great backyard, many games and activities for children and the whole family. We use VRBO often and have always had good results but this was hands down the best! The owners were helpful, accommodating and very responsive. Did not want to leave!
