A true DESERT SANCTUARY just updated outside with new paint everywhere, copper covered vigas and pool heat in addition to the solar panels! (Any dates on the Availability Tab that are NOT in gray can be rented! A minimum of 3 nights though.)
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. The large cedar door opens 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. As you work your way through the home, the Den 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, several slow cookers 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 with wrought iron railings to the Bar Loft/Man Cave. This is a great space to enjoy a sports event or movie on the 65-inch flat screen SmartTV 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.

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!
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!
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!
My family of five spent the Thanksgiving week at this beautifully appointed home. The layout of the house and the amenities were perfect. We were seeking quiet and out of the way. This property is located just far enough out that it feels remote but close enough that you are not in the middle of no where. My kids and I loved the pool (paid a little extra for it to be heated this time of year). The putting/chipping green added a nice touch. The fruit trees were nice. The reason this trip only received four stars is that while we spent Thanksgiving at this home, the dishwasher broke. The homeowner was very responsive and had a serviceman come out the same day but he was unable to fix or replace it a day prior to thanksgiving. Not a big deal and actually shows the care of the homeowner and the desire to make sure the guests have a great trip. I would recommend this house for a couples get away or a family retreat. We would book it again.
This is a beautiful home in the desert. The property is meticulously maintained and very clean. We were a family of 9 ranging in ages from 2 to 85. Everyone enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is equipped with everything you may need to cook a fine meal. Plenty of room in the second refrigerator for refreshments. The pool and back deck were where we spent most of our time, grilling, eating, swimming and relaxing. A true vacation. And most of all, the beds were super comfy. LuAnn and Jeff were marvelous hosts keeping in touch with us and available to answer any questions. I highly recommend this home to anyone who likes to experience the finest!
Great house and private back yard. Out a ways from Scottsdale but plenty of golf courses in the area. LuAnn was very responsive to a few glitches we encountered. Couldn't have been more helpful. Looking forward to another visit to this home.
Very nice house with a beautiful pool and everything necessary for comfort. Close enough to golf and restaurants. I feel that this property would be perfect with an outdoor spa. Also, the room downstairs with at least a sofa bed or twin would be an easy added bedroom. There is a walk in closet already and a bath. All in all, we were very happy. I loved sitting under the waterfall and letting the warm solar heated water pour over me before it hit the pool!
I took 6 of my buddies on a golf trip in Feb 2016. We had a great time staying here. The pool and chipping green was a fun added benefit.
We would go back 100%!
We had a lovely time at Desert Sanctuary. The home was spacious and worked great for 4 couples. The kitchen was well stocked (better than my own) with every item we might need. The pool and yard were beautiful and the outdoor furniture was very comfortable. Luann was responsive to every need and provided much information about the house. We enjoyed our stay.
