Welcome to the world-class private golf and outdoor recreation club of Desert Mountain, in Scottsdale, AZ. Within Desert Mountain, the village of Desert Horizons is admired for its semi-custom homes on spacious lots, in a location central within Desert Mountain, providing convenient access to everything. This home is a warm and inviting 4,050sf, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home. Step inside to the living room, and your eyes will immediately be drawn to the wall of windows capturing the distant city views. Sited at 3,150 feet elevation, it has fabulous views of the Scottsdale and Phoenix valley (city light views at night!), winter sunsets, and mountains, near and far. But don’t be completely drawn outside just yet! Inside you’ll find architectural accents, from the full-length stone hearth in front of the fireplace, to the wood inlay ceiling. Combine these with softened square edges throughout the home, tall wood-slatted doors, and fun oval door handles, all bringing a subtle desert contemporary style. Here in the living room, you’ll also find the wet bar with drink fridge, completing the scene for an evening of entertaining your friends and family. Continue to the expansive kitchen, with abundant cabinet space topped by granite counters, stainless built-in refrigerator, double-ovens plus microwave, and gas range. Flowing into the family room for a comfortable day to day space, and two corner glass windows for tons of natural light and desert beauty. The bedroom layout is ideal, with a three way split plan providing privacy to you and all of your guest. The west wing is made up of two guest bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathroom. Central within the home, you’ll find a third guest bedroom, also with a private ensuite bathroom. Last but not least, split on the east end of the home you’ll find the gracious master suite, with an ample ensuite bathroom and walkin closet. Take in the views through the full-wall windows, while you relax in front of the fireplace, with miles of sparkling night skies as your backdrop. In the back yard, take in the sun on the deck by the pool and spa, or relax in the shade on one of the multiple covered patios. The built-in BBQ is conveniently located close to the kitchen, yet another thoughtful feature for entertaining, and of course the firepit is perfectly placed to face seats toward the city lights on a cool evening. This wonderful home is offered with access to the seller’s Lifestyle Membership in The Desert Mountain Club via separate payment to the Club (after successful application), avoiding the lengthy waitlist (call Club for details prior to offer). This means you would have immediate access to Desert Mountain Sonoran Clubhouse, featuring premier quality swimming, tennis, fitness (equipment, classes, personal trainers, yoga, etc.), pickleball, bocce, spa, and croquet, as well as the new state-of-the-art dog park. You will also be able to enjoy the Club’s ten restaurants, including the wonderful northern Italian restaurant Constantinos, the popular Verde Café for a casual meal, Angelo’s, an indoor-outdoor pizza parlor serving outstanding wood-fired pizza, and many more. Considerable recent and ongoing investment in keeping Club facilities state-of-the-art, funded out of general funds, not through assessments. How close is it to what you want and need? Fifteen minutes to excellent shopping and nightlife in Carefree and Cave Creek. Fifteen minutes to a trailhead for over twenty miles of scenic hiking or mountain biking in the mountains at the back of the community, reaching 4,500′ ASL. Thirty minutes to Scottsdale Airpark, or an hour to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. Two hours to Flagstaff (snow skiing), or continue north to the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell. Four and half to Las Vegas. Six to Newport Beach. Desert Mountain is a thirty-four-year-old, 8,200 acre, gated, master-planned community with about 2,000 homes and about 200 homesites yet to be built upon. It is in a noticeably quiet, serene, safe (manned entry gates; security patrols), secure and beautiful location, spread east to west across the foothills of the Continental Mountains in the High Sonoran Desert on the northern edge of Scottsdale, with homes at elevations ranging from 2,600′ to 3,500′ ASL. The Tonto National Forest (fourth largest in the country), borders the community to the north. Desert Mountain has enjoyed significant success over the years. Buyers have come from all states and worldwide, but especially from California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and the Upper Midwest. Most owners are Club Members, and virtually all of them seem to have made socializing and having fun a key priority. Another positive is real estate taxes strikingly lower than many places in the Northeast, Midwest, or West Coast. (2023 taxes on this home were only $5,820). Demand for homes has remained strong. Desert Mountain’s weather is famously dry and sunny. Our risk of natural disasters is extremely low. Being higher and somewhat removed from the city means the stars are bright at night, the air typically much cleaner, and the daytime high temperatures can be about ten degrees cooler than the Valley floor, every day of the year. Summers are very enjoyable since it only gets over 100 degrees only about ten or twelve days a year here, compared to ninety days at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, with low humidity. At night in the summer, the temperatures drop fifteen to twenty degrees, a significant difference from life on the Valley floor. You would be amazed how comfortable 95 degrees is at night or in the shade. So, being in Desert Mountain on a year ’round basis is an attractive proposition. In addition to the foregoing, the owner of this home will be close to major league and collegiate sports, fabulous medical care (including the Mayo Clinic and hospital), terrific air service, and a wide variety of cultural attractions. Paradise does not overstate what Desert Mountain is for the people who get to live here. Thanks for your time. If this home and Desert Mountain sound like a possible fit for you, we hope to hear from you!
