About the property

4 Bedrooms 3.5 Bathrooms Sleeps 8-10

We have the perfect home in the perfect location!.

Our beautifully renovated 3500 sq ft 4 bedroom 3 bath home is tucked in a beautiful, private one acre lot at the base of Black Mountain in Cave Creek north of Scottsdale. Enjoy magical panoramic views, native saguaro cactus, iron wood and palo verde trees, sweeping mountain views, sunsets, and incredible wildlife— howling coyotes, bobcats, and javalinas add to the tranquility of this beautiful private setting.

Then, when you’re ready for fun, just a block away you can walk from the home to the “one of a kind” famous cowboy town of Cave Creek. Country bars, saloons, line dancing, and even watch a cowboy ride a bull!! Some call it the 'Home of Cowboys and Caviar, Where the Old West Meets the New'….

Dining? Oh yeah! From the five star experience at Binkley's (formerly of French Laundy) to Cartwirght's steak house to the famous fried Chicken at the Buffalo Chip. There's something for every palette! One of our favorites is the beautiful outdoor setting at Tonto Grill, a great spot after day of golf at Rancho Mana.

Golf.. our home is located between several world class golf courses.

The Boulders,Troon North, Quintero and Greyhawk, and Rancho Mañana just to name a few.

Spa's. Scottsdale is known for it's world class spas. five minutes from us is the Boulders, home of the Waldorf Astoria, (Formerly Golden Door). The Boulders sits at the base of a 12 million year old boulder outcropping. Truly spectacular. Or, try the Four Seasons, Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain. Relax and rejuvenate!

This area north of Scottsdale is away from the crowds, yet close to all of the daily conveniences you may expect. Grocery stores, saloons, pharmacies, boutiques, medical care, and major chain stores are all within a few miles but completely out of site and out of mind reinforcing this natural setting.

From the moment you arrive you'll find Spanish touches throughout our home.

You enter through the gates into the spacious entry courtyard with a wood burning kiva fireplace and flagstone patio. Around back is a pebble tec swimming pool with walk in beach entry. You can even bring your drinks and enjoy sitting at the Acapulco swim up bench with a built in table top.

Our home has views in every direction and there are three outside decks to enjoy them. From the living room enjoy views of Black Mountain as it changes colors throughout the day! Barbque from the deck off the kitchen and enjoy the desert and bolder views. Finally, sunsets! From the dining room, enjoy our amazing desert skies!

Our newly remodeled kitchen is ready for the ambitious chef! Fully equipped with all your cooking needs. Our Spanish dining table has seating for 8. Or, curl up in the living room and enjoy the wood burning kiva fireplace.

Our home offers two levels. The top level has the living room, dinning room, kitchen and master suite with jetted Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The lower

level has 3 bedrooms, plus a den, 2 full baths and it's own kitchenette. So, your downstairs quests wake to their own coffee, in their own private oasis! Two of the downstairs bedrooms have queen size beds, and one with twin beds. The den has a sofa bed. We have new electronics throughout. The living room has a 50' flat panel cable TV. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV's with built in DVD player. DVR's capability.

High speed internet access

We've tried to provide everything you'll need for a comfortable stay from new linens and towels, to a fully equipped kitchen.

Our beautiful spacious home is an easy 50 minute drive from the Sky Harbor Airport, and 40 minutes to old town Scottsdale. It's an easy drive to Spring Training, Barrett Jackson, the Arabian Horse Show, The Fiesta Bowl and all the other great area events!

And, have we mentioned all the other outdoor activities?

The Black mountain hiking trailhead, is 3 minutes from our house. Hot air balloon rides, Sedona is 1hr and 46 min., Bartlet Lake, bicycle rentals, Jeep tours,shopping, art galleries, museums, equestrian events and the many art shows.

About Nina Friend

My husband is an Architect and I love interior design! We have been vacationing in the Scottsdale and Cave Creek area for more than 20 years and love the area so much that we decided to purchase our 2nd home here. When we saw this home with the majastic scenery and with the amazing views and so close to the surrounding restaurants, art, golf, we fell in love!

Nina Friend purchased this house in 2014

Why Nina Friend chose Cave Creek

Perfect Location! Cave Creek is just north of Scottsdale yet it is away from the crowds and close to all of the conveniences of daily living.

Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at this house. The kids loved the pool and my wife and I really appreciated the SW decor. Cave Creek is a great spot for exploring Arizona. It is less than 2 hours to Sedona and about 3 hours to the Grand Canyon. This house is walking distance to many of Cave Creek's restaurants and shops. It is about 100 yards away from the Black Mountain trail head which is a nice, steep hike. If you are interested in cycling, there is a bike shop in town to rent either mountain or road bikes from. The house is fully stocked and has multiple patios to enjoy the great views. If you are looking for a true southwestern experience, I highly recommend this house.

Very comfortable home with lots of outdoor living space

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting, nestled in the hills of Cave Creek with views of Black Mountain. In the evenings, you can hear owls, coyotes and watch the sunsets. The home is walking distance to the town of Cave Creek and Black Mountain trail. The owners are very quick to reply and be of help, if needed. The home offered plenty of space and room for our family. Thank you, Paul and Nina, for a great place to stay!

An amazing house in a truly beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed this beautiful house. I celebrated my 70th with my family and everyone said it was s perfect house for the celebration. It is so well equipped and the pool was great! It is also in a good location . Not noisy at all but you can walk into town if you wish or go for a strenuous hike up Black mountain . The hosts communicated quickly as we began our search of houses and stayed in touch although we really had no problems!

A Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything, from extremely comfy beds to an amazing kitchen to numerous decks for outdoors quiet to a gorgeous pool! And so much more! Indoors, the furnishings everywhere were pure Southwest style and there was nothing missing. Well-equipped kitchen, plenty of dishes and pots, outdoor grill, outdoor fireplace for toasting marshmallows. Master bedroom had an amazing shower with jets going in every direction and an amazing jacousi-type bathtub. Two bathrooms each, upstairs and down, each uniquely decorated. And, of course, everything was very, very CLEAN! My children and grandchildren enjoyed the ample accommodations downstairs and enjoyed gathering upstairs for family meals around the large dining room table or the outdoor veranda table. Comfy leather sectional around an incredible tree-slice coffee table from which to watch the large-screen T.V. Wonderful spot on the opposite deck to watch the sunset over Black Mountain.

So much to do in the environs, even though we hated leaving the house! Hiking and horsebacking riding in the two nearby Maricopa County regional parks, bike riding in Brown Ranch Preserve, fishing on Lake Pleasant, jeeps into Tonto National Forest, bull riding at the arena in a nearby restaurant, wonderful Mexican food. Baseball games and a casino trip (for the adults) in Phoenix, a visit to the unique Musical Instrument Museum, and a ride north to Sedona. We were here for two weeks, one with the older grandsons and family and another with the younger granddaughters and family and there was always something exciting to look forward to, although each family enjoyed different activities. But we all enjoyed what to us from the Northeast is the very unusual vegetation and had fun learning the names of the different cacti. Watching the birds fly back and forth to their nests in the saguarro from the side deck was the best! Jackrabbits, roadrunners, quail all paid us a visit.

Thanks Nina and Paul for sharing your wonderful home! And for the special welcoming touch of great coffee and lovely wine!
