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.

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.

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!

Fabulous Setting and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed staying at Tony and Sarah's home in Paradise Valley. It was paradise! Upon arrival I met with Tony to do a walk through and every room was spotless. Tony provided a great overview and left us with some goodies and access to everything. The views of Camelback mountain and the surrounding area were gorgeous. Every bedroom had a comfortable bed. You could tell the attention to detail at every turn. The master bedroom upstairs was very impressive. All the appliances were top-end and worked great. The pool was a big hit with our family and was heated nicely for our stay. As far as location, you couldn't find a better spot. Many of Phoenix's top restaurants are five minutes away. There are plenty of sites to see like the Zoo, Botanical Gardens, Railroad park and sports facilities which are 10-15 minutes away. The area is super safe and with a little athletic ability, you can walk all around the neighborhood and take in all the unique homes of the area. Tony and Sarah's home is highly recommended and we would be happy to stay there again. Thanks for opening your home to us!!!!

Great house, great location and the best hosts

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a group of six on a golfing trip for six days. The location was very convenient to all of the places we wanted to go and the views from the house were the best of any property I have stayed in the Phoenix area. The house and pool was all very well designed and carefully maintained. Tony was very receptive to meeting us on the first day when it best fit our schedule and did a good job of showing us the property as well as providing suggestions on restaurants in the area that we would not have found without his comments. Everybody in our group agreed this was the best property we had stayed in during any trips to the Phoenix area. We will definitely try to book this property the next time we come to Phoenix.
