About the property

3 bed, 2.5 bath~ spacious home on golf course with amazing views of the mtns


Enjoy this stunning, 2,800 sq. ft. desert oasis set within the beautiful golfing community of Rio Verde. Wake up to views of Four Peaks right outside your window as you watch golfers try to sink one in at the third hole just steps from the patio.

Huge vaulted ceilings allow for plenty of natural light that brightens up the entire house. The fully appointed kitchen makes cooking a breeze with ample counter space to put together a feast. Keep the conversation flowing with the open layout perfect for socializing with family and friends. Start your day in the quaint breakfast nook overlooking the 7th tee box, and finish your day cuddled up on the plush couches next to the wood-burning fireplace.

The large master bedroom has a door that walks out to the patio so you can watch the sunrise as soon as it starts peeking through the windows. The master bathroom has his and hers sinks with a spacious walk-in closet. Unwind with a shower or bath tub while looking up through the skylight overhead.

The two guest rooms include twin beds perfect for accommodating friends or family. Each room has a bathroom just steps away and large sweeping windows to soak in the warm Arizona sunshine. There is plenty of dresser and closet space for all of your packed essentials.

The den is equipped with a pullout couch and an inviting recliner for putting your feet up at the end of the day. If you need to get some work done on your visit, pull up a chair to the desk with plenty of space and easily accessible power sources while you enjoy secure WiFi internet.

The laundry room comes equipped with a washer/dryer and an ironing board. The garage has space for two cars.


There are rental guest membership options available in weekly or monthly terms for the Rio Verde courses. Before your morning round, grab a coffee and pastry from the barista at the Clubhouse. After your round, grab a bite at the Verde Pub or enjoy a more formal meal in the Copper Room. If interested in playing other courses in the area, there are many great options nearby like Tonto Verde, Troon North Golf Club, Tegavah Golf Club and more.

The community center features a large, heated pool and hot tub, tennis and pickleball courts, a fully equipped fitness center, a library and pool table, fitness classes, art classes and more. If looking to hit the trails, McDowell Park has infinite opportunities for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking.


There are Protestant and Catholic masses held at the Community Church of the Verdes and services for all denominations can be found in nearby towns.

If you'd like to venture outside of Rio Verde for a meal, head down the road a few miles to the Mesquite Grill in Tonto Verde with a beautiful patio for dining al fresco. Other restaurant options are available in nearby Fountain Hills or Scottsdale, both a short drive away.

About Margarete Hileman

This home was originally built in 1993 by a loving couple from northern Minnesota. It served as their winter oasis for many years. The extended family has come down for the past 20 or so years and continues to enjoy every trip spent in Rio Verde. When we aren't using the home, we like to rent it out to visitors in hopes that they get as much enjoyment from it as we do.

Why Margarete Hileman chose Rio Verde

The original homeowners had a knack for building beautiful homes and did their due diligence to ensure they were choosing a lasting spot. They fell in love with Rio Verde and everything else the area had to offer. This home has entertained many family get togethers over the years and serves as a beautiful retreat to enjoy sunny Arizona and friends and family.

What makes this house unique

For those unfamiliar with Rio Verde, there are four peaks that stick out very prominently when looking at the mountain range. Fittingly, these are called Four Peaks. Although it is hard not to get a great view of these majestic mountains, the view from our front porch is hands down the best in town. Whether it's the sunrise popping out from behind them in the morning or the colors cast upon them from the sunset in the evening, each look at Four Peaks from our property will leave you breathless.

There were quite a few issues with your property.

1) We were never told that the golf courses were closed. We feel we were mislead.

2) The guest bathtub faucet was leaking and the drain plugged. It was 3/4 full. If we had not arrived when we did it would have overflowed and flooded the house. The toilet in this bathroom is also non functional.

3) We went to the clubhouse to check on golf and to have a bite to eat and were not able to do so because you did not inform or provide us with the contract. This was very embarrassing to say the least and caused us unnecessary stress. Thank goodness that Susan the Membership manager was there to sort out the mess.

4) My wife went to take a bath after this fiasco and we quickly realized that the hot water was not working. After investigating many different things I finally found that the breaker for the water heater was turned off. No Bath or shower that evening.

5) The condition of your home did not reflect the price you charged and we were disappointed at every turn. The only redeeming quality was the view.

A very open feel home. Very comfortable. One with the surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed this house. It was nice and clean when we arrived. The decor is in style with The Arizona setting. This house is very open concept and the views are stunning. At dawn and dusk we very much enjoyed observing the wildlife. Coyotes, bunnies, roadrunners, quails. We enjoyed the fresh grapefruits from the tree in the garden. They also have oranges, limes and lemons and perhaps others. The yard is beautiful with a variety of climate adapted plants. The bathrooms are ample and in good shape. We also very much enjoyed connecting with the locals in the community pool. Be prepared to drive to get your groceries where the nearest store is in nearby fountain hills some 12 mins. The house is located near two nature parks. Tonto National Park and Mc Dowell Regional Park. We both explored them. If you can rent a four by four it ramps up the fun in Tonto. The owners are wonderful. Very accessible and nice. Thanks for having us.

Beautiful mountain views

  • 5 of 5

This home offers some of the most spectacular mountain views in all of the Verdes. Waking up in the morning with the sun beaming around the Four Peaks was a great way to start the day.

The home has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

The home is well maintained and stocked with every accessory you need to prepare a tasty meal.

You won't be disappointed!
