About the Property

Fabulous Sunset & Mountain Views; 2 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath, Spa, 4 Fireplaces, 3 TV

Our beautiful cottage is located in the community of Desert Mountain called the "Best Golf Community in the world" by the Robb Report. This is your opportunity to sample the best of high desert living in the 8000 acre gated community of Desert Mountain home to some of most beautiful southwestern style custom homes found anywhere. At 3000 ft in North Scottsdale, the home is high above the Valley below. At this elevation amazing views abound and temperatures run far lower than Phoenix. There is always an inviting breeze.

Just down the road is the unique, artsy town of Carefree and the cowboy town of Cave Creek. Carefree is also home of the Boulders Resort, a Waldorf Astoria Resort and Spa as featuring 2 golf courses available for guest play. Nearby are a numerous array of wonderful golf courses, hiking trails, biking, great restaurants, galleries, and art shows. All this in a wonderful setting and clean air of the mountains and beautiful High Sonoran Desert. And you will be only a short, easy drive to the best in Scottsdale's great restaurants at Kierland commons.

Nestled into the side of a hill over looking prestigious Desert Mountain, this two bedroom, two and a half bath cottage has over 2000 square feet of open living space plus an additional 1000+ square feet of patios for outdoor living. The patio is off the entire back of the home and can be accessed from both Master Suites and dining area. It features a gas fired hot tub, fireplace, dining and lounging area, cocktail table and Stainless Steel gas BBQ. This home is very private, quiet and sits high above a low-traffic neighborhood street. This is a real place to relax.

The interior features an open floor plan that presents guests with fantastic views of the Continental Mountains and Tonto National Forest from every room. The home has a full dining room, living room with large flat screen TV and DVD. There is a remodeled eat in kitchen with new cabinets, granite counters and appliances. Also there is a laundry room and two car garage. There are two large master suites both with a large flat screen TV, gas fireplace, two walk-in closets and a tub and walk-in shower. One of the master suites also has a hide-a-bed and desk with printer and of course wifi is through out the home.

Nearby are a tremendous array of wonderful golf courses, Troon North, TPC, Boulders, Rancho Mañana, Legend Trail, Dove Valley, Talking Stick to name a few. Out your back door or close by are biking and hiking trails, horse back riding, a variety of restaurants, galleries, music and art shows. All this in a peaceful, beautiful setting of the mountains. If you tire of those activities, Bartlett Lake Reservoir is close for boating and fishing (less than a half hour drive). Pinnacle Peak, McDowell Mountains, and Camelback Mountain for additional hiking just to mention a few.

This is the perfect spot for one or two couples seeking a golfing get away. Desert Mountain is one of the world's top private golfing destinations, with six Jack Nicklaus signature courses, former host of the Tradition golf tournament and now host to the Charles Schwab Cup.

Access to its six Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses are available to Desert Mountain members and their guests or if sponsored by a Realtor. In those cases they may use use the Desert Mountain clubhouses, restaurants, fitness center, tennis courts and lap pools where meals and services can be charged on any major credit card.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We travelled the world and lived in around the US but when we got to Scottsdale that was it!

Why the Owner Chose Desert Mountain, Phase II, Scottsdale, AZ, USA:
We have travelled the world but decided when we wanted to settle down this was a perfect location. There are so many things to do and although we love being outside and playing golf and hiking mountain trails, we like the proximity of world class shopping, dining, sporting events, music and theatre. Unlike some small homes offered for seasonal use this home is nestled into the hills well apart from neighboring homes. You have privacy and quiet. We love the peace and quiet of our location but the convenience of amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beautiful views and quiet location. Close in but a world away. Newly remodeled kitchen and furniture and TV in the living room and master bedroom.
