This 3600sf Territorial Santa Fe style custom home is perfect for couples, families and golf retreats. Situated directly on the golf course above the 4 tee boxes of the fourteenth hole, it is not subject to flying golf balls. It is a one story floor plan with high ceilings throughout and no stairs.

The outdoor area is an entertainer’s delight and has a wonderful open, very festive feeling. It is situated above the tee areas so as to provide privacy from the golfers, yet you can view the action if you choose. A large high-ceiling covered patio is accessed from the kitchen/great room on one side and from the master bedroom on the other side. The BBQ area includes a pergola/trellis connecting the covered patio to the pool on one side of the patio, with a curved bar underneath. Part of the bar area is in the shade of the covered patio most of the day, but with a beautiful view. Additionally, there is an outdoor dining table with sunbrella, chaise lounges and a seating arrangement in the patio area. There are city lights views from sitting areas just above the tee boxes for great nighttime views.
The pool is designed with a high-end small iridescent tile surface and has a water feature and a separate spa. Both pool and spa can be heated separately.
The main wall in the great room has been remodeled to include a large stone fireplace (gas) and 55” flat screen LED TV. The chef’s kitchen has slab granite counter tops, a large island with bar seating and a wine cooler.
The living/dining room has a new dining table that seats up to 12 people (with leaves extended) comfortably.

The guard-gated community of Eagle Mountain is located just adjacent to Scottsdale in the southern foothills of the McDowell mountains. It is bordered to the south by a vast natural desert area owned by the Salt River Native American community.
Here you can have it all. The upscale suburb of Fountain Hills has a relaxed, small town atmosphere, but the posh shopping districts, restaurants and nightlife of Scottsdale are located just a few minutes away. Frank Lloyd wright’s Taliesin west is 10 minutes away. You can gamble at the nearby Fort McDowell casino. Possibilities for outdoor activities abound, including hiking, biking and horseback riding in the desert. The large public tennis facility of Scottsdale Ranch Park (where you can play tennis for $4 for 1.5 hours) is 15 minutes away and offers clinics and instruction. Saguaro Lake (30 minutes away) has a full service marina and offers boating, skiing and great bass fishing. In winter, there is snow skiing at Flagstaff, which is 3 hours away. Sedona is an easy day trip.
The world-renowned Mayo Clinic is 2 miles down Shea Blvd from the Eagle Mountain community.

Why Anne Hoffman chose Fountain Hills
We bought this home in 2012 as a second home, after discovering the Eagle Mountain community through a vrbo listing. As we live in Stamford, Connecticut, we were looking for something in a warm climate and fell in love with the haunting beauty of the desert, both at day and by night. We were especially interested in the Eagle Mountain community because of its interesting mountainous, not flat, terrain and green golf courses. On one early trip, we actually ate at the Vu Bistro 3 nights in a row (We never do that!) because of the view(!) of Eagle Mountain, the music and ambiance of the outdoor terrace. We plan to engage in many outdoor activities, primarily tennis, hiking, biking and skiing – and indoor activities in the restaurants and night clubs of Scottsdale!
What makes this house unique
The location of our house is unique in that it is at the top of a quiet cul de sac in a guard-gated community, with a beautiful, expansive, elevated view overlooking 3 green fairways and a handful of large custom homes on the other side of the golf course that back up to a dramatic mountain. The outdoor area is very open, festive and, although it is situated above the golf tee areas and provides privacy from the golfers, it allows for watching lots of action on the golf course if you choose. So despite the fact that there are limitless possibilities for activities in the area, there is really no reason to leave home at all!
