Description

FIRST TIME TO MARKET, VERY LIGHTLY LIVED IN, and PRICED TO SELL! Welcome to Lookout Ridge 16, a 2,960 s.f., three-bedroom/three-bath, south-facing, Great Room floor plan patio home with guaranteed long-range panoramic views of mountains, city lights on the valley floor far below at night, and colorful sunsets. It is on a cul-de-sac in a quiet part of Desert Mountain, a highly regarded 8,200-acre, development in north Scottsdale, AZ, with a private golf and outdoor recreation club known as the Desert Mountain Club. (Membership not mandatory or included, but available). It is close to one of the Club's seven golf courses, one of its four golf practice ranges, its high-tech golf teaching center, and two of its seven Clubhouses, and enjoys quick access to the community's entrance gates.

Suppliments: Other details include an elevation of 2,770', very comfortable for year 'round living; the Renegade golf course, restaurant and practice area are a three and a half minute walk away; the Sonoran Clubhouse is about a six-minute walk away (see details about this facility below); a wet bar with an undercounter refrigerator; two large fireplaces (one in the Great Room and one in the Main Bedroom); a spa; a two-car garage with a lockable storage closet; a jetted tub in the Main Bedroom's Bathroom; a split bedroom floor plan; two discrete levels separated by just two steps; large walk-in closets, with two serving the Main Bedroom (one lockable); a gas range in the kitchen; and a location on a relatively large homesite due to being on a corner. The home has not been updated and a new owner will likely want to make some changes. The good news is that such effort won't have to undo anything the current owner has done, and at a list price of $456.08 per square foot, it has been priced far enough under current market to allow for several hundred thousand dollars of remodeling investment and still be well below recent sales levels in the neighborhood, which have included five sales in the last year at per square foot prices of $505.80, $625.00, $635.80, and $720.57 for very similar homes with very similar views. Current furniture available under separate agreement. Owners have used it only a few nights since buying it in late 1999 as they live full-time locally. About this home's floor plan... This open, "Great Room" floor plan is known as the "Sage" model. In the opinion of the listing agent, who lives across the street from this house in a free-standing version of the same floor plan, it is the single best design the original community developer came up with out of approximately thirty-five plans offered over the years. More on Desert Mountain... It is a thirty-four-year-old, 8,200 acre, gated, private golf and outdoor recreation-oriented master planned development on the slopes of the Continental Mountain range on the northern edge of Scottsdale, contiguous to the fourth largest National Forest in the country. There is a twenty-mile private trail system in these mountains for the exclusive use of Desert Mountain residents. The top elevation is 4,890', highest in all of Maricopa County. The views from the high point in the trail system are really something to see! Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is typically about a forty-minute drive from the community's Front Gate. The opportunity to be a member of The Desert Mountain Club is a significant part of the attraction of living in Desert Mountain for most property owners as the Club is the emotional, physical, and social "core" of the place. As noted, membership is not included with the purchase but is available from the Club after being approved by the Club. A waiting period may be involved. The 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 an eighteen-hole par-3 course, rated for handicap purposes. That course, known as "Seven", has a "sports bar" clubhouse with twenty-eight big screen televisions, two bocce ball courts, and several huge firepits. One of the other Clubhouses is the Sonoran Clubhouse, an amazing swim (three pools), tennis (nine courts, including grass, Har-Tru, and cushioned surface hard courts), fitness, and spa facility with a grill restaurant. It enjoyed a $12,000,000 renovation in 2016. The following summer saw six pickleball courts, two bocce ball courts, and a croquet court 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. Owners have invested over $30,000,000 in individual homes. It has attracted full-and part-time residents from all over North America, Great Britain, and western Europe. Another reason people like to own real estate here is because real estate taxes are strikingly low compared to many parts of the country, particularly the Northeast, Midwest, and California. The 2021 taxes on this home were only $5,405.50. 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. 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. Thanks for your interest in this home. Against this backdrop of privacy, service, beauty and recreation, Lookout Ridge 16 represents an unusually nice opportunity and value. We look forward to showing it to you someday and helping you learn about the community, the Club, and the area!
