About Ann Pierson

My name is Ann Pierson. My husband, Rob and I met in 1985 while attending the University of Central Arkansas and were married in 1990. We have lived in Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas, Illinois and, at last, in the glorious state of Arizona. When we moved to Scottsdale in 2001, we knew we were home! Our three adult daughters have been blessed to grow up here. We all enjoy the weather and beauty of the Sonoran desert and all the wonderful activities the Valley of the Sun has to offer.

Ann Pierson purchased this estate in 2015

Why Ann Pierson chose Pinnacle Peak Heights

We had been admiring this home from a distance for quite some time. When we had the opportunity to purchase it in 2015, we just couldn't pass it up! It is an amazing 2.2 acre estate with the most beautiful mediterranean style home. The home is spacious and luxurious, yet comfortable. We love to entertain and this home is perfect! Having two living rooms gives plenty of space to play games and visit. The many courtyards ensure that there is a private place for everyone to enjoy. We love sitting in the family room or on the back patio enjoying the beautiful vistas.

The pool is 4-10 feet deep and can be heated at an additional fee of not more than $135/day (cost is based on the actual cost of heating and varies each season)

What makes this estate unique

The spectacular views, six fountains (one indoors), mature vegetation and Mediterranean architecture combined to draw us to this property. We find the home to be calming and welcoming. It sits on 2.2 acres allowing a great deal of privacy, while still having all the amenities of the city. The view of Pinnacle Peak Mountain from the soaking tub in the master bathroom is incredibly soothing. The private guest casita with a kitchenette, dinette, sitting area, bedroom, bathroom, courtyard and fountain offer an escape sure to provide tranquility.

The Best - 10 Star!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous, intimate wedding here, and the best decision we made was that we came in early and enjoyed the house prior to the wedding.

Ann, the owner of the property, couldn't have been more accommodating. Highly recommend this place for any occasion. Thank you Ann.

Ten Palms is AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend staying at Ten Palms, not only is the property absolutely breath-taking... but Ann is truly amazing herself. She goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible- she greets you for in person walk through and is always available by cell phone to answer any questions you may have. The house is so great with fabulous amenities, you never even want to leave! Everyone in our 15 person party was extremely comfortable in their stay. We truly had the best weekend and can't wait to come back!

A Beautiful Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

Ten Palms served as the ideal venue for our extended family to gather at one time, in one place to come together to enjoy one another's company and presence. At it's core, Ten Palms is a majestic property that exudes the comforts and connectivity of being at "home." Ann's hospitality during our stay was such that we felt like she was an extension of our family gathering. Happiness can be found in many corners of the world but you'll be sure to find Joy as you gather with, and simply be with, friends and family at this lovely home. EnJOY your stay!
