I’m hosting an Open House in Scottsdale Ranch, a terrific master planned community on the east side of Scottsdale, and since you’re not here with me, I thought I’d bring a taste of it to you! You’re in for a treat.
Scottsdale Ranch is located just south of Shea between 94th Street and 110th , close to the 101, and easy access to nearly anything you’d ever want. At first glance, you’d never know you were in Arizona – meandering lakes and towering palms provide a breathtaking view of the McDowell Mountains beyond.
On the northern edge of Scottsdale Ranch is Lake Serena, a 42-acre lake stocked with Bass and Catfish. The lake boasts five miles of shoreline ideal for that evening sail to dropping a lure. You discover miles on sculpted paths for walking, biking and jogging. Plus, there’s a community center and conference room available to residents, tennis, planned social events throughout the year (Jazz night was this past week), block parties, special interest clubs, community garage sales, quaint shops and eateries at the Mercado, including the ever popular Goldie’s (a must for the wings enthusiast), and AJ’s. There’s even a wonderful Senior Center offering a plethora of activities, classes and events.
Development of the master planned community began in the early ‘80’s and the Ranch now consists of 40 different neighborhoods, from apartment-style living to grand, gated estate homes and everything in between. I have yet to talk with a resident that doesn’t rave about the community. Some say, once you’re here you’ll never leave.
What attracts me aside from the beauty and the very well maintained and manicured public areas is the true sense of community I discover every time I’m here. People are outdoors, active and clearly loving life.
The home I’m holding open is on the southern edge of Scottsdale Ranch just off of 104th Street on Bella Vista. This home has been nicely updated with gleaming stainless appliances, travertine floors, plantation shutters, impressive stone and tile baths and so much more. It offers 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 3 + car garage, over 1760 sq. ft, sparkling pebble tec pool on a corner lot and is offered at $399,000. If you’re used to storage like the basement you had in Michigan, you’ll be in hog-heaven here! I’ll be back holding it open tomorrow if you care to stop by! Plug 10451 E. Bella Vista into your Garmin for directions.
If you haven’t driven through Scottsdale Ranch, I encourage you to check it out. There’s even a great web site with inviting photos, history and more. And, if you’re ready to look for your own home within the Ranch, call me! I’d love to help you find the perfect place to turn house to home!
