About Trish Sill
My husband and I bought this home with a plan to move there to enjoy our retirement when the time comes in a few years. We moved to Phoenix in 1995 and have lived just outside of Fountain Hills since 1998, so we are close by to offer any assistance you may require.
We purchased this home at the end of Nov.,2012, and have had great fun updating it and furnishing it with new furnishings inside and out! It is our aim to make it an enjoyable,comfortable, upscale Southwest getaway for all who wish to enjoy golf and the many delights of Arizona and the Sonoran desert.
Trish Sill purchased this house in 2012
Why Trish Sill chose Rio Verde
We fell in love with the community, the location, the wildlife, the views, all the things that make Rio Verde so special. We also felt a greater sense of privacy here for outdoor dining and relaxing, being located just off the golf course without giving up our fabulous mountain and sunset views.
What makes this house unique
This home has a unique cozy character of the desert southwest with the open beam ceilings,the fireplace, the Mexican tile floors and lovely plantation shutters throughout. The views of the mountains and the beauty of the Sonoran desert make this home one of my favorite places to spend time. I particularly enjoy the unique botanical atrium that adds a special feel to the charm of this home. Situated on a quiet cul-de-sac but just steps from the golf course make it a perfect private vacation retreat.
