CommentsThe property is located 1 mile east of Hwy I-17 off Carefree Hwy in North Phoenix. We are just west of gorgeous Carefree and Northwest of Scottsdale, AZ. There are Saguaro covered foothills just behind the home. There is beautiful lush Sonoran desert surrounding our community, as well as all the comforts of shopping and restaurants in the immediate area. Lake Pleasant is approx 10 miles to the west. This area is also a great place to see Hot Air Balloons (sometimes dozens at a time) overhead on a weekly basis, especially on weekend mornings.

Exterior Features
There is a gated and walled in courtyard type patio at the front of the residence. The columns in front of the home are covered in stone. There are about 20 trees on property, however the home is less than three years old and a few of them are under 10' tall. The landscaping is meticulously cared for and looks much more mature due the owner installing larger plants and trees in the beginning. The backyard has views of the foothills, a backyard pond, a wall fountain with a lions head, 1 furnished covered patio with armoire and table and chairs, 1 furnished open stamped concrete patio with 4 large upholstered leisure chairs, a large marble top table, potted plants and iron torches. The yard is not large, but is has a courtyard-garden feel. It is lush with Mediterranean style landscaping, including grass, flowers, Bougainvilleas, Italian Cypress, Date Palm, Queen Palms, Sago Palms, Oleanders and Shamel Ash Trees. There is even a herb and vegetable garden on the side of the home.

You enter the residence thorough a metal-glass door. The curved stair case is custom built with iron and oak stained to match the Toffee cabinets in the home. The foyer boasts a large marbleized pendent chandelier and a "Scarlet O'Hara" balcony (That's what we call it) with a custom iron rail. It matches the iron entry gate to the front patio on the approach to the front of home. The foyer floor is elevated from the game room and entrance to the living room area. The floors are travertine and chocolate brown marble. The surrounding area of the foyer-game room and the second story foyer landing all have chocolate marble counters in all niches and atop cabinets.

Views
The views of the foothills are behind the home within 1/4 mile. There is a small desert greenbelt-common area next to the home. However, just outside the gated subdivision is open Sonoran desert with city lights that can be seen from outside the community. There are also great views of all the nearby hillsides layered in the distance. Because this home is in the outlying metro area, the sunsets are spectacular with all the mountains and hills framing it. There are miles and miles of open desert beginning 1.5 miles west of the home.

All furnishings in the home are either 3 years old or less... or they are family antiques for the most part. All the drapery, stair case, loft cabinetry, art work-framing, etc are all custom made for the home as noted above. There are 3 sofas in the home, 1 of which is a pull out in the loft. The master bedroom has a king size bed. The guest room has iron faux finished canopy bed-queen size and matching window bench, a Natural Maple armoire. The teens room has an Ebony Maple queen size bed and matching triple dresser. This room is very customized for the daughter with a 4 1/2' soft wine paisley wallpaper wainscoting and chair rail, faux finished walls and partial ceiling, accented by a 3/4 of the ceiling also wallpapered and framed with a traditional panel molding. Drapery and bedding are done in rich matte wine crushed satin accented with black pillows. Very sophisticated look.
