About the Property

4 bdrms -with den (incl 2 masters,), 3 ba, pool, spa, fire pit & BBQ

Welcome to our modern, updated ranch style home centrally located to Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale. Our little estate sits privately on over an acre in a quiet paved neighborhood near the corner of Lone Mountain and Cave Creek Rds.
You can take a tour at http://www.ranchotierraaz.com

We are equine enthusiasts and our home reflects our love of horses. This spacious open floor plan has been comfortably furnished (everything in the house new in Jan-Feb 2015) for family enjoyment or small group gatherings. Please, this is not a party house. The master features a King bed and private patio, bdrm 2 has been remodeled to create a second master with direct access to hall bath and a quiet, private patio overlooking the back yard and fire pit area. It features a Queen bed and full size sofa/sleeper . Bedroom 3 features two memory foam twin beds. There is a queen sofa/sleeper in the 4th bdrm/den with private 3rd full bath and its own patio overlooking the pool. It's great for a kids play area as well with its own TV and access to back yard This multipurpose room can be closed off from the rest of the house with massive custom barn doors creating sound barrier and complete privacy.


Lots of outdoor enjoyment spaces with small private splash pool (sorry it isn't heated), a new (Sept 2015) six person spa, faux grassy play area, built-in propane Bar B-Que, hot plate burners and prep area, meditation fish pond with waterfall and propane fire pit with semi circular seating for evening enjoyment and marshmellow roasts. The acre plus lot affords residents optimal privacy and plenty of parking without the seclusion of out of town suburban properties and dusty dirt roads. Groceries, restaurants, entertainment and shopping all in close proximity (5-10 minutes) with outdoor recreation opportunities all around in desert and mountain hiking, horseback riding facilities, lakes and rivers, several outstanding golfing opportunities, equestrian event center at Westworld, zoos, aquariums, butterfly pavilion, several casinos and so much more.

We would be honored to share our home with you and enhance your vacation experience or mini resident workshop, retreat or gathering of friends and family. There are two twin and one full air beds available for glamping indoors with your groups. Email us if you have any questions.

    Please share with me what kind of pets you have and a little about them. We are a dog and horse loving family so we understand traveling with 'all' the 'kids'.

Muddy paws, piddles or excessive hair will trigger extra charge from housekeeping. Outside business left for our clean up will also be deducted from separate pet deposit that is refundable. We love our animals and respect travelers that do as well....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The Dobbs Family is the owner of this lovely rustic ranch home in the Desert Foothills North development in Cave Creek. Purchased for our family to enjoy when attending horseshows near, just getting away from the hustle and bustle of every day life in CA and for our combined family get togethers. We hope you will enjoy our home when we are away.

Why the Owner Chose Desert Foothills North, AZ, USA:
Whether its a Pro Golf tournament, baseball spring training or your favorite team is playing the AZ Cardinals or the Diamondbacks, hiking, motorcycle mania or even a big event at Westworld, this home is centrally located for convenient outings to them all. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, there are lakes and rivers nearby and lots of desert and mountain hiking opportunities. Horseback riding is also available in the Cave Creek area. So for a small gatherings/events (like a writers retreat or painting weekend) or just to hang out with a few friends, relax and enjoy the inviting desert communities of Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale, this home is waiting provides a private, quiet sanctuary for your time away from your own homes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fully fenced (block) yard area for private entertainment and relaxation, this home is located on over an acre of beautifully maintained desert land with natural open spaces between the homes where wildlife abounds. Watch the quail run along the fence tops, catch the bunnies early morning frolics, the butterflies and hummingbirds. Cactus wrens and woodpeckers add to the desert chorus. Listen to the coyotes sing you to sleep and watch out for the occasional javalina that may be passing by. We are country quiet and city close.
