About David Marsh

I have worked in corporate America for over 20 years. I am at the end of the Baby Boomer generation, so I know how to work hard, but also play hard. My family has travelled all around the world for work and vacation since I was in grade school. When I saw this home, I knew it would be the perfect place to lay back and relax after a hard week at work, rejuvenate the mind and body. It's peaceful and quiet, even when the coyote come down to drink from our waterfall. Being out in nature, hiking or just relaxing, gives me a much needed change of pace.

David Marsh purchased this house in 2005

Why David Marsh chose Arizona

I bought this home so my family could get out of the rat race of the city, but still be close enough to all that the metropolitan Phoenix area has to offer. I set up the home office so I could telecommute and it's worked out great. The 62' HDTV w/DirecTV makes watching sports or movies so enjoyable that it's hard to leave the reclining couches some days.

What makes this house unique

We set up the home with everything we would ever want in a home. We kept the rooms simple yet more than adequate for entertaining. People can telecommute and still enjoy some vacation time. The rooms are spread out so everyone can have their own space to read, watch TV, do office work or exercise. This is the perfect retirement home. It's quiet yet only minutes to golf, shopping or entertainment venues.
