This lovely Arizona ranch home is situated in the coveted stretch of Paradise Valley between Camelback and Mummy Mountains. The quiet street on the gentle slopes of Mummy Mountain provides for a level acre lot with north-south exposure and beautiful mountain views. You are welcomed by beautiful cactus and a circular paver drive that leads to an expansive covered porch and entryway. Originally built in 1965, this slump block home has been updated and expanded over the years to create a spacious, lovingly cared-for family home with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, plus an office and detached workshop/garage while keeping its original Paradise Valley charm. The high ceilings in the main living areas of the house create open, sunny spaces for entertaining and everyday living. The neighborhood...is known for its Saturday night happy hours and PV Country Club fireworks viewing over Mummy Mountain on the 4th of July!
Beyond the wide, wood-carved front door is a proper foyer with a front hall closet that greets guests. A large living room with an adobe fireplace and reading nook span the home from front to back. The living room offers picture windows at the front and double French Doors at the back leading to a covered patio that overlooks the pool, backyard, and Mummy Mountain. The dining room's French Doors open to the front covered patio, creating an inviting entertaining space.
The kitchen is central to the home with easy access to the living room, dining room, and family room. A cook's dream, it offers a beautiful brick arch framed Viking, 4-burner gas range with griddle along with a Kitchen Aid built-in oven, convection microwave, Bosch dishwasher, and an island with prep sink and wine rack. A breakfast nook has two sets of French doors that open out to covered patios. One door joins the living room patio and the other joint the more casual patio with easy access to the built-in grill. A large walk-in pantry and broom closet finish off the kitchen. The laundry room and half-bath have convenient access to the kitchen, family room, backyard, and pool as well!
The family room is bright and spacious with relaxing views of Camelback Mountain that set the stage for watching your favorite show or gathering with friends to watch your favorite sports team! There is plenty of room for a huge 4K TV! An office off the family room, with built-in bookcases, includes a window that overlooks the carport, so you can view your car collection or latest project. It also has convenient access to the backyard and workshop, making any hobbyist happy!
The primary bedroom has a fireplace and sitting area, with French doors that open to a private grassy sanctuary. The bathroom has double sinks, a commode closet, a jacuzzi, and a shower along with access to the walk-in closet. Your guests will enjoy a large bedroom with a sitting area and its own roomy bath. The bath has sizable counter space, separated from the commode and shower, along with a walk-in closet. A French door allows guests easy access to the pool and backyard. Two additional bedrooms share a hall bath, with a wide counter and sink, separated from the commode and shower. The fifth bedroom has traditionally been used as an office or exercise room and offers a variety of reconfiguration opportunities. There is even a built-in cabinet in the bedroom wing hallway for linen, and towels, and provides the often-missing storage in newer homes.
The serene backyard is a delight to behold across all seasons. The majestic mulberry tree is a showstopper that offers welcome shade in the summer, while hummingbirds visit the rotation of blooming plants. All provide a peaceful view while you enjoy morning coffee. Five fruit trees grace the backyard: two Cara-Cara oranges, a lime, a grapefruit, a tangerine, and even a peach tree! In season, you'll enjoy fresh juices from breakfast to happy hour!
The pool benefits from the shade of the mulberry on summer afternoons, providing options for sun or shade and keeping the water refreshingly cool. A motorized cover helps keep the pool safe, clean, and warm in the winter should you decide to heat it. The pool was recently resurfaced along with an updated pool surround, variable speed pumps, filters, and heaters.
The circular driveway is augmented with a wide side driveway and gate that is approximately 16 feet wide to accommodate recreational vehicles and leads to a 2-car garage and 2-car carport with the added desirable bonus of a large storage room. The office that overlooks the carport along with the workshop is the perfect setup for the chronic hobbyist!
A large, air-conditioned workshop/garage sits at the back of the property behind the gated side driveway and was remodeled in 2016. It's outfitted with a double overhead garage door, new flooring, a Big Ass Fan, 220 Volts, air compressors, and metal roll-down window shades. This detached building could be a dream shop for your hobbies or reimagined in so many ways.
