Peanut butter and jelly. Cookies and cream. Cheech and Chong.
Such combinations prove the adage that the whole may indeed be greater than the sum of its parts on occasion.
In the Scottsdale Real Estate world, that truth is readily apparent in some of the older master planned communities. Take McCormick Ranch, for instance. When considered in conjunction with the lakes, greenbelts, parks, shopping, award-winning schools and central location, some of the older properties that fall within its boundaries are far more desirable than they would be elsewhere in the Valley.
Because, let's face it, 1970s architecture is sometimes better left in the 1970s.
So if the dated homes that fall within desirable communities are given a boost for their address, what do you get when you add the variable of rennovation to the equation? And an exceptional lot? And a unique floor plan that you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the community?
You get our one-of-a-kind new McCormick Ranch listing, that's what.
You've been told that you'll have to make compromises to get the home you want in the neighborhood you want for the price you want. Well, you know what?
Compromise is overrated.
Boasting over 2800 square feet of remodeled decadence, this four bedroom gem greets you at the front door with soaring valuted ceilings and a two-way fireplace. The wide open kitchen looks out to the living, dining and family rooms. No dated laminate counter tops or 1970s avocado appliances here, but slab granite and stainless steel.
The master suite is a monster by McCormick Ranch standards, and features a fully remodeled bath with travertine stone, granite top vanities and vessel sinks for a sumptuous retreat.
Hardly a one trick pony that hides its newer interior inside a dated shell, the home's exterior features smooth stucco and a newer roof (2006) in addition to newer A/C.
This home in this location would be special enough, but it has the good sense to reside on a 1/3 acre (nearly 15,000 square feet) North / South cul-de-sac lot. Like a big back yard for entertaining or just to get away from the world? You'll have all the room you need between the large covered patio, pool & spa area and two separate lawn areas that are each as large as the typical back yard by themselves.
Oh, and one last thing. This anomaly has a 3 car garage.
Yes, you heard me correctly: a 3 car garage in McCormick Ranch.
While many properties in this sought after community will have an achilles heel, as is to be expected of 30 year old homes, you'll be hard pressed to find one here.
But don't take my word for it. I'm a salesman. Give me a call or drop me an email to learn more about this special McCormick Ranch home, or to schedule a viewng today. Coffee's on me if you think I've puffed the goods.
