About the Property
2Bd/2BA 1300 SF Casita-beautiful Mtn & City light views, rooftop viewing, pool
Mariposa Grande -- Spanish for 'Big Butterfly' -- is the name of the quiet, secluded street where this house is located, and here, you can really spread your wings. This beautifully decorated casita is located on the rear portion of a 5-acre luxury property and features a separate driveway, a separate entrance and ample covered parking. Hunkered down amidst native desert fauna and landscaping. It has 2 large bedrooms -- 1 master with a 'snail-style' walk-in shower and another bedroom with a hallway bathroom featuring another walk-in shower. Both bathrooms are elegantly done in gorgeous custom tile work. Every room contains large, flat-screen TVs and fireplaces, while the kitchen features stunning granite countertops, cooking island and breakfast nook. Relax on the patio at sunset with city views and a sizzling barbecue, or step up to the resort-style pool and enjoy a cocktail while water tumbles over the pool's custom rock fountain feature. Picturesque views include some of the best in all of Scottsdale: tranquil mountain vistas from the patio and rooftop viewing area; blooming desert flora all around; wildlife such as jackrabbits, coyotes, javelina, cardinals, cactus wrens and more! Whether you come to Scottsdale to enjoy the world-class golf courses, the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction, the Arabian horse show, Cactus League Spring Training Baseball games, the designer shopping, the award-winning restaurants, or hiking or biking the hundreds of trails, you will really enjoy relaxing here after all the activities.

About the owner: Judy is a Phoenix native who grew up in the city and over the years yearned to reside in the North Scottsdale area to get closer to nature. She's a loving mother of two and grandmother of three who is very active in walking, hiking, fundraising for cancer research. She works in the Commercial/National Title Insurance industry for a Fortune 500 company and has for 35+ years all the while adding on to this gem of an escape. The cozy confines of the Mariposa Grande 'ranch' still host family events, friendly gatherings and holiday get-togethers. But there's no livestock at this ranch. The only 'wrangling' that happens is the rounding up of good times and fond memories. She travels to Mexico where she owns a home on the beach and has many family vacations there as well.
