About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6 Adults, 2 Children

Relax or entertain at our luxurious 4-Bedroom secluded retreat in N. Scottsdale with amazing views of the mountains under the dark skies and stars in the Arizona desert.

Private and serene retreat setting like no other to entertain your family and friends or have a wedding reception, Spa party, or Holiday party. Allow our property manager to customize a massage package or golf package for you and your guests. This magnificent property is on a gorgeous 1 acre enclosed yard with a multi-level patio, bar, chilled CO2 beer keg, refrigerator, 50-burger grill, two fireplaces, heated negative-edge pool (this will require an extra fee for heating), spa (no extra charge), and large covered patio with luxury style outside furniture. You can also listen to HiFi Digital sound on the outside surround sound system while entertaining, watching TV, or relaxing.

Close to all the excitement!

Also 5 min. away from Troon North Golf Course and Vista Verde Golf Course; both in the Top 25 of Arizona's golf courses. 15 min. away for Cave Creek, where you can get a real western town feel and a taste of the west at Harrold's Corral and many of the restaurants on the main street. Want to be close but not too close to Barrett Jackson Car Auction, The Waste Management Phoenix Open, or any of the other N. Scottsdale events; you are only 15 to 20 min. away. You are close to Hwy 101 that's an easy 30 min. drive to Sky Harbor airport. If you want to shop, you are near Desert Ridge Marketplace, Scottsdale 101, Scottsdale Pavillion, and City North.

The retreat has all of the necessary amenities including high-speed Internet, Apple TV for the latest movies from iTunes and Netflix, and satellite TV network.

A 4-car garage protects your vehicles and you are secluded away within a 6' wall that surrounds you providing you with security and privacy.

Daniel Houston purchased this house in 2014

Why Daniel Houston chose Scottsdale

This property was purchased as a retreat for people who need a way and escape to Paradise!

A place where you can stay for a few days and get lost in the views of the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks and other vast reaches of mountains to the east from the home.

Relax in a heated pool and spa to exercise if need be, or just recreation; both are welcome here. The pool is serene with a negative edge waterfall that gracefully compliments the surrounding landscape.

The fireplaces at night bring that “campfire” feeling and togetherness while enjoying the million star clear black skies and the sounds of the wild.

What makes this house unique

Close to all types of restaurants, world renown golf courses, western town Carefree, outdoor hiking and riding, shopping, professional sports events, and all types activities, especially during the months from December through April.

Fantastic home!

This home is stunning! The desert views, pool, hot tub, patio, outdoor areas are amazing. The home is laid out perfectly, well equipped, with all amenities one could want. It was very clean. The owner/staff were readily available and easy to work with. We had a great stay - highly recommend!

Great week in Scottsdale

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the house we had sun, beautiful views, and a relaxing experience. The house had everything we needed and more to cool meals and entertain. Great location near golf hiking and more.

Breathtaking views and sunset.

  • 4 of 5

We rented the home for a destination birthday party and had a lot of friends and family staying nearby. The house could not have been more perfect for entertaining and the pictures do not do it justice. The home was beautiful and the owner and property manager (especially Myrna) were very quick to respond! Our guests for the party were impressed and being that we are mostly 'city' people it added to the intrigue that there was a little drive on a desert dirt road before arriving. The home was beyond expectations and I would recommend it to anyone. From hosting a gathering to using it as a retreat away from it all - this home fits the bill!

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely amazing and made our trip a thousand times better. The pool was our favorite part of the house, it was so nice to have especially during the summer when we were there. The house was spacious, we had plenty of space and were so comfortable! We definitely will be staying there again soon!

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

The view of the mountains at this property is unparalleled. I personally had a phenomenal experience staying at this place; I was bathed in luxury, pampered with comfort, and surrounded by gorgeous scenery. I can't wait to return in the near future.
