Scottsdale North House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms/4 Full Bathrooms: Can Sleep 8-10

This 4,000 sq. ft. custom-built luxury home is located on 1.25 acres of land in the foothills of the Tonto National Forest. The quiet setting has breathtaking views and perfect for incredible biking, hiking and horseback riding. Enjoy a peaceful, private setting and still maintain a close proximity to shopping, dining and some of the best golf the area has to offer.

Enter the property through the professionally landscaped courtyard past the trickling water fountain, blooming cacti and mountain views. Open the large cedar door into the Foyer and Formal Dining Room with dramatic 30-foot ceilings and large iron chandeliers. While this space is expansive it is still cozy with oak furnishings and plantation shutters. Work your way through the home past the Den which is furnished with a large club chair and ottoman to cozy up with a good book or keep up on world affairs behind the large, rustic desk with wireless WiFi and printer/scanner/copier. Walk on into the Great Room with high ceilings adorned with rustic red cedar beams. You’ll find this room is calling for you to sit down in front of the gas fireplace and watch a good movie. The Great Room flows right into the Kitchen Dining Area with enough room to seat eight people! Cooking for a big group is effortless in the large gourmet kitchen equipped with all stainless steel appliances, high-end stainless cookware, forged knives, cooking utensils, Kitchen Aide free-standing mixer and place settings for 16. Plus so much more!

There is a space for everyone to socialize or get away from it all! Head up the open staircase to the Bar Loft/Man Cave. This is a great space to enjoy a sports event or movie on the 65-inch flat screen SmarTV while making drinks behind the granite wet bar with stainless steel mini-frig. Right off this room you can enjoy the balcony in the morning with the cup of coffee watching the sun rise over Four Peaks or in the evening sipping on a glass of wine watching the sun set behind Pinnacle Peak. This balcony also looks over the pool and putting/chipping greens. It’s a spectacular site at night with the professional landscape lighting.

After a long day retire in the Luxury Master Suite looking out the large windows enjoying the mountain views or out on the adjacent balcony with private access. The en suite features a spa-like experience with His & Hers vanities, Jacuzzi tub, large walk-in multi-head shower and a huge custom closet. Guests will also enjoy the other three fully furnished bedrooms with queen beds and baths with all the linens provided. Two of three bedrooms have shared access to another balcony with mountain views.

The large outdoor living space spans the whole back of the home with comfortable lounge seating and dining while enjoying the pool, waterfall or waiting for your meal to cook on the gas BBQ grill. Don’t worry if it is a little warm because the multiple ceiling fans help cool the area! On cool nights, gather around the gas kiva/fireplace to keep warm. Didn’t have time during the day to practice on the putting or chipping greens? Not to worry as there is a spot light so you can practice anytime! Within this walled area, you can enjoy the Arizona mountain views and weather all year round with secure privacy.

Housekeeping, Private Chef, Nanny & Personal Assistant/Concierge information available upon request.

Long-term stays are also available.

About LuAnn

We love the southwest--warmth and open spaces! Depending on the day we're farming, enjoying all types of horsepower, golfing, camping, cooking and gardening. When we have time--relaxing and enjoying the weather is #1!

Why LuAnn chose Scottsdale North

We had visited relatives in the area many times. We loved the fact that we were in the country (what we're used to!) but only minutes away from great dining, bars, attractions with all the amenities. There is never 'nothing' to do!

What makes this house unique

We love the large acreage in the rural community which reminded us of home. The home yet made us feel we were staying at a resort. Quiet, peaceful with mountain views, the pool and wonderful people! We are always counting the days to the next time we walk through the door!

Beautiful Home with Great Amenities A++++

  • 5 of 5

The home was even nicer than we expected! The landscaping makes a great first impression, and the home is well-furnished and very clean. We took advantage of the outdoor living spaces – spending time by the outdoor fireplace, cooking on the bbq and having putting contests. Owner handled the rental in a professional manner. Her responses to inquiries and emails were quick and effective. During your stay, make sure you visit the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center which is about 10 minutes from the residence – it is a must-see while in Phoenix. We would definitely recommend this residence and look forward to possibly returning.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Wow what an amazing property! The house is perfect couldn't ask for more. All the amenities you could ask for. Beautiful yard and spectacular view. Not to far from downtown Scottsdale. Our friends went to a different golf course everyday just a short drive to most. Pool was a bit chilly but the fire pit made up for that. Would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to all my friends! Owners were very nice and helpful.

Owner's Response: Glad everyone enjoyed their stay! There was LOTS of activity during the stay with the Super Bowl and the WM Golf Tourney--close enough to be part of it all but far enough not to be affected by the crowds or traffic. Please come back again to enjoy the AZ warmth!

This house is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the hustle bustle of the city. It truly is a quiet luxurious desert sanctuary. It is a very well maintained, spacious and well equipped house which makes one feel at home immediately. The house is actually better than how it looks in the pictures. Everything from the kitchen to TVs and air conditioner is in excellent condition. The beds were comfortable and clean.

It is very apparent that the house is well maintained and well managed by the owners. LuAnn especially was very helpful and patient with any questions or clarifications. We stayed there over the Thanksgiving weekend and enjoyed it so much that many of us did not want to leave.

Owner's Response: We are so glad everyone had a great holiday! It is so hard to convey how spacious and colorful the landscaping and property are. We have found others have also been pleasantly surprised when they have stepped into the home! We will be working on some better photography then! But, we have found previous renters reviews are their weight in gold! Thanks for staying and we hope you will be able to come back again!

We so much enjoyed the beauty and tranquility of this home. It was perfect for my family and grandkids. The house isn't cluttered with alot ot trinkets where we had to watch the little ones every second. The outside was so peaceful to enjoy a sunrise or sunset. The pool and firepit offered additional benefits just to relax. An added bonus was the lemon, grapefruit and orange tree, you can't get that freshness and aroma in any store. Coming back to the big D was a let down but every dream must end.

Owner's Response: We are so glad the family enjoyed the home! We find the pool "time distractng" with those little ones (and older ones!) asking for something to do all the time! So glad you took advantage of the citrus trees! There is nothing like fresh orange juice. :-) We hope you got to relax, catch up with family and enjoy those grandbabies! Please come back again!

Fantastic, well equipped, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house suited us perfectly! It had a large master bedroom and a further 3 double (queen) bedrooms, two with a Jack and Jill bathroom and the other with its own bathroom across the hall. We have 3 teenage children (twin boys and a girl) so it was just perfect. The sitting area is very spacious and comfortable and the 'loft room' upstairs gave another TV option for the kids. The kitchen was very smart and well equipped.

The pool was fabulous and the focus of our stay in the home, being July! The verandah was well shaded though and being that bit higher than the centre of Phoenix I still found I was able to sit out. Something I'd never been able to do in Chandler at this time of year!

It is a bit further out of town and the last bit is on a dirt road but for us that all added to the charm! We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for this type of holiday.

I would love to come back at a cooler time of year to take advantage of the kiva and the fire in the living room!

Perfect family vacation in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend staying at this home! We had two couples and our 11 month old babies who had a blast in the pool. This home is as described in the listing and exceeded our expectations. We also appreciated the owner's prompt response to any of our questions. We would definitely stay here again!
