About the property

1 bedroom open Cottage with charming courtyard upscale neighborhood

February and March are available. This Art Villa has quiet ambience. Nestled on the south end of a large Estate. It has it's own Private courtyard and walk through entrance gate.

One queen size bed.

Off street parking on Estate.

Many restaurants close by and Safeway with many carry out items three blocks away. Trader Joe's and Whole foods nearby too.

Short drive to West World where Scottsdale events are held. Jackson Barrett Car Show and the Arabian horse show.

Wireless internet and Cable TV Dishes and pots and pans. Two burner stove top, counter top oven, microwave, coffee pot, freezer and refrigerators. Jacuzzi bathtub and shower. Towels and Bed linens provided. All you need is your suitcase and a couple of arms full of clothing.

Best for guests who are fit and trim because of the narrow walkways inside and the antique English door by the bed. It is very French Style. Comfortable love seat in the living room and queen size bed in the bedroom. Marble topped desk facing the flat screen for a home office. Fast Wifi. Open floor plan no dividing walls. It was originally built for a private painting studio so the layout is not typical.

One guest called it his long skinny house.

Named the Secret Garden Art Villa because of a writer who felt he was in his own secret garden while staying on the Estate.

There are books about painting and art and painting supplies behind the cabinet doors in the living room. Some people say that in the photos it looks like a garage door but it's just a long row of cabinets. At one time I taught people how to paint on porcelain. I have now turned it into a guest villa/ suite while I am busy with life and do not have time to paint. Until that time you have the charm of living in a real artist's retreat.

It is usually rented by a traveling single or couple. Best for vacationing people traveling light. It has an armoire in the bedroom with about 4 feet of hanging space and some shelves. The Flat screen Tv swivels to watch from bed or from the living room. There is another TV in the kitchen and one in the bathroom.

Hand painted porcelains in the hutch in the bedroom and paintings beneath the copper ceiling on the patio. One of a kind. Unique. For those tired of corporate cookie cutter condos. Completely detached with no adjoining walls.

Main estate pool within a short walk just open your back door and walk up your back sidewalk 125 feet to the main Estate. Perfect place to catch the sun and enjoy pool side.

Cruiser bikes comes with this house. I have many bikes on the property for your use.

There is a cactus aquatic center one block away .They have lap swimming in a heated pool. It's a wonderful place and they also have a weight room downstairs that is pay by the day. Many health clubs in the area too if you have a membership to one of them.

About Diane Gray

My son and I at the pool. My daughter lives in Brooklyn New York. I am a friendly lady originally from Iowa and Nebraska. Midwestern hospitality is important to me and I want everyone that stays on my Estate to enjoy this beautiful property. I am truly blessed to have met so many wonderful people through the renting of spaces I created and I enjoyed every minute of it. It makes me happy when people are all smiles and they enjoy them too.

Diane Gray purchased this cottage in 1974

Why Diane Gray chose Scottsdale

I bought this piece of land in 1974 and watched the area unfold around me. I think it is the best location because it is half way between the 101 and the highway 51. Half way between Old Town and Kierland Commons. I love this peaceful spot that is minutes from events at West World on a quiet Estate property. It is an Upscale neighborhood of safety and peace.

What makes this cottage unique

It looks like country France on the property I have been told. It is not a stiff cookie cutter corporate rental. It is quirky and artzy in every way. From the winding entrance sidewalk to the sweet patio. It is an enfolding interesting place with charm. Kept clean and beautiful.

The Art Villa was built to teach painting on porcelain. It is only open to the public a few months out of the year. There are painting supplies in the wall cabinets in the living room. This adds to the charm of actually being in a real artist's studio. The Art Villa is loved by couples or singles looking for something unusual and charming while they attend the many Scottsdale Events of Winter in Scottsdale.

Lovely private setting

  • 4 of 5

We'd go back. Lots of lovely spots to enjoy outdoors. So nice to have a private area to relax with morning coffee. Also close to shopping and about 2 1/2 miles from the excellent Indian Bend bike trails if you like to cycle.

This is a Quiet Estate and I rent to well mannered guests who respect their personal spaces. The Art Villa is a sweet whimsical arty French inspired non cookie cutter eclectic space loved by those wanting something with soul and charm. Not for those who have special needs or pets. When writing tell me please who will be leasing the space your age and something about you. I can make sure this is the right spot for your personal needs. Thank You.
I am the owner operator a Christian lady designer.
