About the property

Near Scottsdale, Biltmore, downtown, easy 25 min freeway drive to game

Breathtaking views of the mountain and city lights from the living room, family room, kitchen, master bedrooms. We put in huge windows to take in the views from all over the house. Or step outside in the quiet hillside neighborhood on the porch or in the heated pool watch the mountain change colors in the sunset or planes drifting in to land in the far off Sky Harbor airport. If you like peace and beauty with access to the great restaurants, events and activities of a major city, this vacation home is for you, Extensively remodeled in 2009 and refreshed in 2014, it offers 4 bedrooms,3.5 baths, an open floor plan, a game/exercise room with kitchenette (fridge/micro/sink) and seating, a big heated pool -- all surrounded with mature desert landscaping with towering Saguaros, birds of paradise and paddle cactus. We are five minutes from Scottsdale, 5 to 10 from restaurants such as Postinos, FnB, LGO, Seasons 52. It is 10-15 minutes to downtown and museums and the sports arena. And it is easy freeway access to all the Spring Training baseball parking.

About Tony Polk

We moved down from Seattle in 2008 after we realized that everytime we visited Phoenix, our spirits lifted. Where once we spent our lives on jetplanes and doing business, now we found ourselves drinking in the natural beauty, wandering the botanical garden and the arboretum, hiking the mountain trails, exploring the wonderful art this area seems to inspire. Trained as an engineer at the University of Michigan, Sarah had been a technology and sales executive. In Arizona, she took up art and found she has a gift and love for it. A reporter in my early career -- AP,Rocky Mountain News -- I became an entrepreneur and business executive, I resumed writing some in Arizona. I continue doing some business, but on a whole different order of magnitude. We remodel a couple of homes a year; thankfully Sarah is a gifted designer so people want our homes. And we always take time for the beauty of the valley.

Tony Polk purchased this house in 2007

Why Tony Polk chose Paradise Valley

VIEWS,VIEWS, VIEWS ...There are so many places to sit and revel in the wonderful views. This hillside home is in the midst of nature but in the middle of the cities - from up-and-coming innovative restaurants and galleries to the more established in Phoenix or Scottsdale, it's just a few minutes in each direction.

PV puts you a short trip from golf courses, premiere shopping,spring training. With so many wonderful places to eat out, you may never eat in, but the gourmet kitchen has everything to cook up those veggies from one of three farmers markets within 7 miles,or two Whole Foods or three Trader Joes.

This was a beautiful property that was built for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with our three kids and nanny and just loved this house. Tony and Sarah were great hosts and Tony was there to let us in and show us around. The house was very user friendly and we had tons of space and really enjoyed the view of the surrounding mountain and of course the pool - my kids couldn't get enough of the pool! Our only wish - with a trip of only 4 1/2 days we wish we had more time! Will definitely visit again.

Beautiful, imaculate home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying with our multi-generational family. Huge bedrooms and beautiful and clean bathrooms. Unbelievable view! Warm pool. Well appointed kitchen. Nicely decorated with quality comfortable furniture inside and out.

Owners were very nice, greeted us at the door and were concerned that we had everything we needed to make our Christmas holiday perfect. They even decorated!
