The home is a "Kitchen/Family Room" plan, with a separate Living Room and a separate Dining Room in addition to the Kitchen and adjacent Family Room. The Kitchen has new appliances and hardwood floors throughout. Double Master Bedrooms are on each side of the home, and the other bedroom is currently being used as an office. All furniture, rugs, most accessories and some arresting, gallery-quality art available separately. Other details include a two-car garage with a storage room; heated play pool and spa, a built-in barbecue; ceiling fans throughout; mechanical sunshades; a fireplace feature in the back patio, complementing the pool and spa; with four more fireplaces in this beautiful home. No Desert Mountain Club membership included, but available upon application to the Club.
The opportunity to be a member of the community's private club, The Desert Mountain Club, is a significant part of the attraction of living in Desert Mountain for most property owners. The Club is the emotional, physical, and social "core" of the place. The Desert Mountain Club is rightfully internationally famous as a year 'round, private spa and golf mecca, with seven clubhouses, nine dining venues, six eighteen-hole championship Jack Nicklaus Signature courses, four practice ranges, a high-tech golf performance center, and, as of Spring 2019, a seventh course, a serious eighteen-hole par-3 course.
One of the Clubhouses is the Sonoran Clubhouse, a truly amazing swim (three pools), tennis (nine courts, including one grass, five Har-Tru, and three cushioned surface hard courts), fitness, spa, and a dining facility. It enjoyed a $12,000,000 renovation in 2016. The following summer saw six pickleball courts, two bocce courts, and two croquet courts added. It is now perhaps the premier facility of its type in the entire Southwest.
The Club's dining venues offer a wide variety of food, wine, and atmospheres. No coats and ties required! A tremendous range of non-golf outdoor recreation and social activities are also available. The Club's membership is catered to relentlessly by an attentive Club staff and Concierge, providing unparalleled service. In a word, the place is "phenomenal". It is so good, three multi-million-dollar lottery winners have chosen Desert Mountain over the years as the place they want to live.
Desert Mountain is a place of surpassing scenic beauty with long-range, panoramic views of Phoenix, Scottsdale, the entire "Valley of the Sun", many mountain ranges near and far, and, of course, Arizona's famous sunrises and sunsets! It now has about 1,900 finished homes ranging in size from 1,800 to over 20,000 square feet and in price from about $700,000 to over $10,000,000. Owners have invested over $30,000,000 in individual homes. It has attracted full-and part-time residents from all over North America and western Europe. It also has a twenty-mile hiking, biking, and equestrian trail system ranging up to 4,890' ASL in the mountains at the back of the property for the use of all residents. Another steady attraction are real estate taxes that are strikingly low compared to many parts of the country, particularly the Northeast, Midwest, and California. The weather is famously sunny, and our risk of natural disasters is extremely low. Being higher and somewhat removed from the city means the stars are bright at night and the air is typically much cleaner than what lies over the Valley.
Day-to-day shopping needs for Desert Mountain owners are well-handled within about a ten-minute drive by the merchants in the nearby towns of Carefree and Cave Creek. There are 69 restaurants and bars within about sixteen minutes' drive of the Main Gate. The Phoenix/Scottsdale area is famous for world-class shopping, major league, and collegiate sports, terrific air service, and a wide variety of cultural attractions. Desert Mountain is within two and a half hours of normally excellent snow skiing in Flagstaff. Its location in the southwestern part of the United States affords easy access to the entire American West, with especially easy access to San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, and a plethora of unbelievably beautiful places in Southern Utah. "Paradise" doesn't overstate it.
