Are you a horse lover looking for the finest equestrian lifestyle Scottsdale has to offer? Or do you simply enjoy the open space and natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert? Located in the Rio Verde Foothills area of North Scottsdale, in a setting of unparalleled natural beauty, Granite Mountain Ranch offers a sophisticated yet casual lifestyle in Scottsdale’s only luxury gated equestrian community.
This custom built Mediterranean style home situated on 2.85 acres is elegant, yet warm and inviting. Entering through the wrought iron gate into the front courtyard, you will be tempted to linger in the warmth of the natural stone fireplace. But it is the stately hand forged, arched iron and glass entry door, surrounded with exquisitely carved stone detail that will draw you forward and hints at what lies within.
Classically finished, the many fine features of the home have given it a sense of timelessness. As you wander through the rooms, subtle yet impressive details emphasize the quality craftsmanship throughout. A variety of ceiling styles define the home’s character, from elegant coffered ceilings, to Cedar wood planks & hand-chiseled solid Cedar wood beams, to barrel & groin vaulted ceilings with inlayed brick. Other features include chiseled edge 24” travertine stone floors with custom travertine stone inlayed accents, four stone fireplaces, distressed knotty Alder Wood doors & cabinets, custom faux finished walls and hand forged iron chandeliers, some enhanced with Swarovski crystals.
Within the 6,653 square feet of total living space are five spacious bedrooms, including one in the guest casita, formal living & dining rooms, a casual dining area & family room off the kitchen, and an incredible game room with a full-length, granite topped wet bar that includes a chilled beer tap, ice maker & refrigerator. Also to be highlighted in the game room are the wine cellar with a stone wall and arched wrought iron & glass door, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace and French doors leading to a private patio with a wood beamed pergola and mountain views. The perfect venue for any type of gathering!
Perfect for family or friends, the attached guest casita offers a spacious living area, a kitchen with full-size refrigerator, electric cooktop & microwave, as well as a separate bedroom and bathroom.
The property is further enhanced by a charming detached accessory building with tile roof, stone front, arched windows and hand forged double iron doors. This building could be used for equestrian tack/feed storage, as a hobby center, for additional garage space, or converted to a separate guest or caretaker’s quarters.
While there currently are no private horse facilities on the property, should you wish, and with ARC approval, there is plenty of room for a barn and paddock. There is also an additional 3.23 acres adjacent to this property that is available to purchase, allowing for a total of 6 plus acres of very private, very beautiful pristine desert surrounding this home.
There are 100 home sites on 313 acres in Granite Mountain Ranch, with paved roads and a 15 acre equestrian common area with riding arenas, round pens & wash stalls. Vivid desert colors, breathtaking mountain views, sweeping natural beauty and abundant wildlife surround this elegant and unique community. Residents enjoy the tranquility of the area, the incredible views, and very close proximity to miles of McDowell Sonoran Preserve trails for horseback riding, biking and hiking. Granite Mountain Ranch is also adjacent to the 2.5 million acre Tonto National Forest allowing easy access for trail riding and ATV use. Nearby lakes offer fishing and boating opportunities and world class trainers for “cutting,” “dressage,” and “roping” are also located nearby.
Within a 10 to 30 minute drive are many of Arizona’s top golf courses, such as Scottsdale National Golf Club, Troon North, or Troon Country Club, Estancia and The Boulders, as well as wonderful casual and fine dining restaurants, all types of shopping, area schools and hospitals.
