    Description

    Welcome to Renegade Trail # 4, a 3,460 s.f., three-bedroom/three and one-half-bath, Kitchen/Family Room floor plan, free-standing home in immaculate condition with many recent upgrades. The property offers an intimate, verdant setting, looking down on and across a heavily vegetated wash on a cul-de-sac in a quiet part of Desert Mountain, a highly regarded 8,200-acre, development in north Scottsdale, AZ, with private golf and outdoor recreation club known as the Desert Mountain Club (membership available). It is within easy walking distance of two of the Club's seven major club facilities, the Renegade Golf Course, clubhouse, restaurant, and the Sonoran Clubhouse (see details below). It is also close to the community's two entrances and exitsAbout the recent upgrades... Please see the separate Summary of Recent Upgrades in the Documents section for details. The current owners bought the home in April of 2019 as a full-time home, expecting to be in it for many years. It was a nicely equipped and finished home when they bought it, but they proceeded to make numerous changes and upgrades to the home in anticipation of enjoying those changes for a long time. However, a job opportunity in Tennessee has recently upended those plans, and now this home, in truly unusually good shape and exceptionally well-done, has come on the market. This home's floor plan, known as the "Larkspur," is one of the most popular plans out of about thirty-five that the original community developer offered across several semi-custom "Villages" in Desert Mountain. (See the Floor Plan under Documents). Renegade was the first golf course built in Desert Mountain. It was essentially redesigned and rebuilt a couple of years ago, and now a new clubhouse is in the process of being built. (See a selection of renderings and a link to a YouTube video on this clubhouse elsewhere in the listing). The facilities include a double-ended driving range and the Jim Flick Golf Performance Center, high-tech learning, club fitting, and club repair facility. The other Clubhouse that is within walking distance (about six minutes) is the Sonoran Clubhouse, an amazing swim (three pools), tennis (nine courts, including grass, Har-Tru, and cushioned surface hard courts), fitness, and spa facility with a grill restaurant. It enjoyed a $12,000,000 renovation in 2016. The following summer saw six pickleball courts, two bocce courts, and a croquet court added. It is now perhaps the premier facility of its type in the entire Southwest. Desert Mountain is on the slopes of the Continental Mountain range on the northern edge of Scottsdale, contiguous to the fourth-largest National Forest in the country. There is a twenty-mile private trail system in these mountains for the exclusive use of Desert Mountain residents. The top elevation is 4,890', the highest in all of Maricopa County. The views from the high point in the trail system are really something to see! Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is typically about a forty-minute drive from the community's Front Gate. The opportunity to be a member of The Desert Mountain Club is a significant part of the attraction of living in Desert Mountain for most property owners. The Club is the emotional, physical, and social "core" of the place. As noted, membership is not included with the purchase but is available from the Club after being approved by the Club. The seller has a Social/Fitness membership that can be earmarked for purchase by the home's purchaser. A waiting period may be involved. The Club is rightfully internationally famous as a year-round private spa and golf mecca, with seven clubhouses, nine dining venues, six eighteen-hole championship Jack Nicklaus Signature courses, four practice ranges, and an eighteen-hole par-3 course, rated for handicap purposes. That course, known as "Seven," has a "sports bar" clubhouse with twenty-eight big screen televisions, two bocce ball courts, and several huge firepits. The Club's dining venues offer a wide variety of food, wine, and atmospheres. No coats and ties are required! A tremendous range of non-golf outdoor recreation and social activities are also available. The Club's membership is catered to relentlessly by an attentive Club staff and Concierge, providing unparalleled service. In a word, the place is "phenomenal." It is so good; three multi-million-dollar lottery winners have chosen Desert Mountain over the years as the place they want to live. Desert Mountain is a place of surpassing scenic beauty with long-range, panoramic views of Phoenix, Scottsdale, the entire "Valley of the Sun," many mountain ranges near and far, and, of course, Arizona's famous sunrises and sunsets! It now has about 1,900 finished homes ranging in size from 1,800 to over 20,000 square feet. Owners have invested over $30,000,000 in individual homes. It has attracted full-and part-time residents from all over North America, Great Britain, and western Europe. Another reason people like to own real estate here because real estate taxes are strikingly low compared to many parts of the country, particularly the Northeast, Midwest, and California. The 2021 taxes on this home were only $5,405.50. The weather is famously sunny, and our risk of natural disasters is extremely low. Higher and somewhat removed from the city means the stars are bright at night, and the air is typically much cleaner than what lies over the Valley. Day-to-day shopping needs for Desert Mountain owners are well-handled within about a ten-minute drive by the merchants in the nearby towns of Carefree and Cave Creek. There are approximately 69 restaurants and bars within about sixteen minutes drive, some of them extremely unique, reflecting the area's very strong Western heritage. The Phoenix/Scottsdale area is famous for world-class shopping, major league, and collegiate sports, terrific air service, and a wide variety of cultural attractions. Desert Mountain is within two and a half hours of normally excellent snow
