Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi, We hope you enjoy our lovely property as much as we do! We moved to Arizona from Michigan in 2014, having purchased this home a year before we were able to move. We fell in lobe with the property, and knew we had to buy it, never having seen such a unique, special property before. I was a Realtor in Michigan, had the idea to rent our lovely Casita as a vacation rental so others could enjoy this extraordinary property too. I am an avid organic veggie gardener and have a raised-bed on property, and also an animal lover, having had horses most of my life. I have now replaced riding with the ever-challenging game of golf, the perfect sport here in North Scottsdale/Cave Creek area. I enjoy cooking and entertaining, and am looking forward to having guests stay at our home. I will be available to assist with reservations, recommendations, and cooking if desired.

Why the Owner Chose Terravita, Scottsdale, AZ, USA:
This truly special property exemplifies a true desert experience, with the extensive Southwest landscape, gorgeous views, fiery sunsets, crystal-clear star gazing, and wildlife viewed from back porch... you will fall in love with Arizona as I did back in 1978 when I attended ASU. We really wanted to FEEL like we were living in the Arizona we knew and loved, not just anywhere in the USA, which is why this property is so special! Our particular home has unique touches that were not found in other homes. The Casita, outdoor bar, and outdoor shower were all custom built, and the attention to detail and stonework is amazing. The main home is very charming, with wood planked ceilings and viga beams. Special touches like the curved indoor kitchen/bar, wood wainscoting and wood floors in the bedrooms, 2 stone fireplaces, and window seats further accentuate this unique property.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Added bonus-You will have the peacefulness and serenity of the desert, yet be only 1 mile from Starbucks!
