About Ken & Maria Arrick
I am a Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker with Lennar Homes. I previously worked 5 years for Four Seasons Resort at Troon North selling fractional/timeshare until sellout last April 2009. This experience at the ultra exclusive Four Seasons Toon, situated in the Sonoran Desert, provided the background for the decoration of this southwestern charmer in a truly old western theme.
Ken & Maria Arrick purchased this house in 2005
Why Ken & Maria Arrick chose Cave Creek
We love Old Town of Cave Creek. One of the few Western Towns remaining in Arizona. Everything one could want to live near: fine dining, great galleries, shops and just a great old western town theme minus all the franchise type businesses except 2 that were establshed long ago. A really cool town! It is driving distance from the airport and the ultra chic Scottsdale, with all the elegant restaurants, shopping and theaters, andhowever far enough away to keep it from getting too crowded. Also driving distance to the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Cardinals sport complexes.
What makes this house unique
I love all the views from all the windows. Lots and lots of light. At night, you see and hear the moon, coyotes and owls. During the day, on numerous ocassions I have seen the deer that live in the gulch that runs through the back of our property. At night, it is so quiet and serene along with some fantastic Sunsets and Sunrises. You feel so out of the way of city life, yet close. The secluded feeling of the home setting takes you back to how it must of felt living in the West in the old days!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for going out of your way to make our stay at Ridgeway Ranch so enjoyable. We felt that we experienced the "Real Arizona" in the heart of the Sonoran Desert living among the locals with their horses and corrals, lots of open space, so many varieties of cactus, watching the mountains turn red at sunset, watching jack rabbits, deer and coyotes (and hearing the coyotes and owls at night). Being so close to town was very convenient to the art and jewelry shows and great local eateries. Mike especially enjoyed YMCA exercise facility. The accomodations-modest looking from the outside-were fabulously renovated on the inside. There was every modern convenience and we were very comfortable. Joyce and Mike R- Maryland
