This highly upgraded Windgate Ranch home offers the popular Venado floor plan, which lends itself to entertaining large groups in the oversized great room.  The location of this home is particularly special as it is situated on a cul de sac lot, backing to a large desert wash, offering privacy and serenity, with dramatic 180 degree mountain views that show off the beauty of the Sonoran Southwest to your house guests.

The intricate use of travertine throughout the home adds a luxurious feel, with a signature circular travertine inlay medallion complementing the circular ceiling and crystal chandelier in the grand foyer. Recessed circular clerestory windows are an architectural detail unifying both the exterior and interior elements of the home.

The formal living area showcases a custom built-in entertainment center and massive stone fireplace with matching stone facade on the spacious wet bar wall.

The kitchen is always an integral part of a family’s life, and this chef’s kitchen comes complete with a 6-burner gas cooktop, professional GE Monogram stainless steel appliance package, large center island, slab granite countertops and generous storage spaces in the custom cabinetry and a breakfast bar. The breakfast room with sliding glass doors opening to the back patio is the perfect space for sipping morning coffee and watching the colors of the mountains change as the sun comes up. The expansive kitchen opens to the great room and creates a flowing transition for comfortable everyday living, and effortless entertaining.

The high profile space of the huge great room breaks out into three versatile entertaining spaces. Quite literally this spacious great room could take on a family reunion with room leftover.

But the party doesn’t stay inside for long, and the high-point of guest entertaining outside this immaculate home is the designer backyard complete with swim-up bar. The self-cleaning, heated Pebble-Tec pool with water slide for the kids and swim-up bar seating for the adults is an entertaining oasis that features a covered patio with built-in gas BBQ, mini-fridge, beer tap, ceiling fans and outdoor speakers.

Always a great design idea, the built-in outdoor seating around the glass fire pit off the expansive synthetic grass open space is the perfect place to enjoy conversation while watching others putt on the kidney-shaped putting green.

Kids are getting restless in the pool? Dry them off and send them back inside to the awesome indoor sport court. The guest casita is temporarily converted into a sport court but the original hardwood floors are covered and preserved so the space can easily be transformed back into the perfect space to house your guests and/or additional garage space.

Or send the kids up to the Clubhouse for resort style amenities featuring community pool and spa, children’s playground, rec room, tennis court and on-site guard so the adults can have some well-deserved time alone.

After a long day of entertaining and family life, relax in the master bedroom with sitting room for some private reading or dip into the jetted tub. Slip out your private bedroom exit for some quiet time on the patio.

Other features of the home include a den, bonus room, and guest quarters with private entrance.

This residence is located at 17929 N. 99th Street, Scottsdale, AZ 85255, and priced at $1,750,000 in the beautiful guard-gated community of Windgate Ranch, a Toll Brothers community.
