Welcome to our 2,400 sf Spanish colonial-style retreat – located in the beautiful community of Verrado. With it’s walkable, tree-lined streets, abundant neighborhood parks, beautiful community gathering spaces – including Main Street and the Verrado Golf Club (formerly Raven Golf Club which was ranked by Golf Digest as the #1 course in Phoenix in May 2008) – it’s sure to provide the perfect destination for your next holiday! In fact, Verrado was named one of the top places in the Valley to call home (Phoenix Magazine - August 2013).
Our new vacation home is nestled in a quiet, park-like setting with expansive views of the White Tank Mountains. There are all new furnishings as of August 2012 and the floor plan is very open with lots of windows so you can enjoy all the natural beauty the desert has to offer. It backs onto a natural wash with heavily planted area (saguaros, palo verde and acacia trees) to provide for a very private stay.
Our home features a large master bedroom with king bed, private master bath, and large walk-in closet. There are three guest bedrooms located on the opposite side of the home to assure your privacy: 1 queen bed, 1 double/twin bunk bed with desk, 1 queen futon. The guest bathroom has a double sink and features a separate toilet/shower room.
The great room, kitchen, and dining area are conveniently located in the middle of the home. The upgraded kitchen includes a large island, wood cabinets, and stainless steel appliances (electric stove/cooktop, built-in microwave, fridge with water/ice dispenser). It is fully stocked for all of your dining and entertaining needs. The dining area features a large farm-house style dining table that seats eight. The kitchen island includes three counter stools to provide additional seating.

Our front den functions as a home office, reading room, or game room. It has an office desk and chair, two reading chairs, wireless printer/fax, 46' HDTV, AppleTV and Wii.

The music can played and controlled through an iPhone, iPod or iPad as well as other sources. Wifi internet access is also available and ceiling fans are located throughout the inside and outside of the house.
The backyard is exceptionally private and provides a panoramic, stunning view of the White Tank and Estrella Mountains. It is beautifully landscaped and has two tables, 10 chairs and 2 chaise lounges. There is a Weber gas BBQ grill, water fountain, fire pit, chiminea, outdoor heather, and landscape lighting.
