About Susan

I am an Interior Designer and have had a Boutique Design Firm for 20 years. Prior to that I owned a restaurant in downtown Toronto. I have a degree from U of T in Anthropology and a degree from RU in Interior Design. I adore Scottsdale and the fabulous wildlife and cactus.

Susan purchased this house in 2010

Why Susan chose North Scottsdale

This property is extremely private and sits on 1 acre in Scottsdale. There are mountain views all around and lots of cactus and cool wildlife, especially Owls. There is a lovely pool and hot tub as well as a manicured garden surrounding the home. Also, the home is a Single Level home, no stairs!

What makes this house unique

Close to upscale shopping, dining, hiking, biking and first and foremost GOLF!! Minutes to Kierland Shopping and Restaurants. TPC and Barrett Jackson and the Waste Management Tournie.

Restaurants include Mastros, Four Seasons Resort, Ocean Club,and many more

Loved the home! Clean bright , supremely decorated. I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE! Shopping is great, and it is on the doorstep of a wilderness adventure right next to desert environs.

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Dream Zone Pinnicle Heights was just perfect. The home has a warm and inviting feeling, with ample space both inside and out. Beautifully decorated with every amenity that you could want or need. Lovely rooms, Great kitchen, BBQ, outdoor pool and lots more. A short driving distance to wonderful resturants, shopping, grocery stores, big box stores or small quaint shopping eating areas. Not to mention the numberous golf courses, hiking and biking.

Dream Zone is a property that would be suitable for a quiet relaxing vacation or a busy family with lots to do. I have recommended this property to my friends and family, and am looking forward to returning.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

My stay in this professionally decorated home was excellent. The beds and linens are wonderful and the amenities were great, including the pool. the putting green, the wonderfully equipped kitchen, overstuffed comfortable furniture, spa like bathrooms and exquisite dinning room. It is a real getaway property. If you want shopping, dining, happy hour, or the nightclub scene it is a short drive or cab ride. Not to mention sightseeing locations nearby. There are wildlife trails for hiking just outside the door. We had a great holiday.
