About Margie Van Zee

I come from the magazine business, and over time I have come to appreciate design and architecture more and more. When my husband and I saw this historic home built by Albert Chase MacArthur in 1926, we knew it would be perfect for us and our lifestyle. It's a perfect balance of indoor and true outdoor living with all of the covered patios, and separate rooms off the house. My husband comes from the liquor distribution company, and over the years, traveling all over the world and staying in private estates, this home reminded us of a peaceful home we once stayed in, in Europe. This home has proven to be the perfect place for us to entertain, and now we want to share it with others.

Margie Van Zee purchased this estate in 2013

Why Margie Van Zee chose Country Club Place

The Historical relevance of the home inspired us. In 1926 Albert Chase McAurthur moved from Chicago to build this home for his brother Warren Chase McAurthur. The McAurthur's lived in the home for many years. They actually built a detached showroom with over-sized American Cherry double cathedral doors, so that they could display their 1920's cars in this room. Today, this room is our formal living room, or what we call 'The Chapel'. All of the bedrooms, dining room, morning room, and the Tavern over-look the center courtyard and fountain, and there is a total of 5 wood-burning fireplaces.

What makes this estate unique

All the bedrooms are very private and are like casitas- as they have their own exterior entrance. There is even a separate casita off the front of the house that will give someone even more privacy. The center of the home is the courtyard, with swimming pool and fountain. You will exit your bedroom, and walk outdoors on the covered patio, to get to the kitchen and living areas of the home. This makes the home so unique, as you get to experience this gorgeous AZ 70 degree weather. You will enjoy walking through the historic gated neighborhood, and a close drive to the Super Bowl fan fest activities that are right sown the street. Scottsdale Fashion Square & Biltmore Fashion Park are only 7-12 minutes away.
