Looking for that perfect, low maintenance, lock and leave luxury home in the middle of it all?
Ready to trade in the expansive yard, but not quite ready to sacrifice on the size of your home?
Do you prefer old world elegance and inviting warmth in your home to the sleek, but sterile modern style that is all the rage these days (at least until the next big thing comes around the corner to replace it in five minutes)?
Best of all, do you like the idea of getting hundreds of thousands of dollars in upgrades and improvements, and paying pennies on the dollar for them?
If you answered “yes” to these leading questions, read on for full property details for one of the best values you will find in all of Scottsdale this year.
If you answered “no,” well … there are always soulless alternatives at grossly inflated prices to consider. To each their own.

Monterey at Mountain View is two-phased development in the vicinity of Gainey Ranch and McCormick Ranch in central Scottsdale. Built by Monterey Homes between 1990-1993, the two gated enclaves feature larger luxury homes (2900+ square feet on average) on moderately sized lots (approximately 10,000+ square feet on average) that typify the lock and leave lifestyle that many high-end home buyers seek. Full time residents and seasonal residents alike enjoy the security and low maintenance living afforded by these sister subdivisions, particularly if travel is a top lifestyle priority.
In total, Monterey at Mountain View contains 89 developed lots; forty lie in phase one, forty nine in phase two. The majority of the homes are single level (72 out of 89), but there is a smattering of two-story homes (17 out of 89) for those in need of a little more room to roam. Fifty nine of the homes (66%) have private swimming pools. Those who prefer to avoid the maintenance of a private pool have access to the community pool(s). A popular home builder, Monterey is known for an elegant, modern style of Spanish architecture that invokes visions of Santa Barbara and sun-drenched days by the sea. Their homes can be found in planned communities like Scottsdale Mountain, Grayhawk, McDowell Mountain Ranch, etc.
The difference between those communities and Monterey at Mountain View is location.
Many expect that they will have to migrate to the Northern or Eastern bounds of Scottsdale to find relatively newer construction of this quality. After all, many of the surrounding communities that comprise the central Scottsdale zip code of 85258 (McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale Ranch, etc) feature homes built in the 1970s and 1980s. The older floor plans and architecture of those developments are trade offs for the ideal location and amenities. Monterey at Mountain View offers the best of both, however – desirable, modern architecture right in the middle of it all.
With the shops and restaurants of Gainey Village to the immediate South, the restaurants, lakes, parks and walking paths of McCormick Ranch to the immediate East, and everything else you could need at the intersection of Scottsdale Rd/Shea Blvd to the immediate North, you could not ask for a more convenient location.
The excelling school district (Cochise Elementary, Cocopah Middle, Chaparral High) has long been a strong draw for buyers as well.
So whether you are downsizing to get rid of that big yard you no longer wish to maintain, looking for a vacation home that will be secure when you are gone, or are simply after a quality home with modern appeal in one of the most coveted parts of the entire valley, you owe it to yourself to consider Monterey at Mountain View for your new Scottsdale address.

Grayhawk Golf Club (Talon Course)
Grayhawk is a golf community developed around the world renowned public golf club of the same name.

The homes themselves run the gamut from townhouses and patio homes to high-end single-family residences. Construction is predominantly from the late 1990s through the early 2000s. There are guard gated subdivisions within Grayhawk for the security-conscious and those who enjoy the lock and leave lifestyle of a vacation home. There are non-gated options as well for those uninterested in paying those premiums.

Welcome to beautiful McCormick Ranch in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona!
Revered for its lakes, miles of multi-use paths, restaurants, golf, public parks, top rated schools, greenbelts, and housing architecture that has stood the test of time, McCormick Ranch remains a highly sought-after community four decades after its original inception. With all that Scottsdale’s first, and arguably greatest, planned community has to offer today’s home buyer, there is something that typically must be sacrificed to live here: a third car bay.
You just don’t see as many three car garages here as you do in newer developments. While many accept that limitation as a small price to pay for all of the perks of home ownership that come with this centrally located community, some just are not willing to compromise and are forced to look elsewhere, much to their regret.
For those of you who wish to enjoy the McCormick Ranch lifestyle, but must have that third car bay, you are in luck … if you hurry.
Just listed, the beautiful Spanish home at 8401 N. 86th Way is that rarest of things: a remodeled McCormick Ranch home with great room architecture, soaring vaulted ceilings, swimming pool & spa, large 1/3 acre lot and … drumroll, please … a three car garage!
Far from just an extra parking space, this gem includes Brazilian teak wood and travertine stone flooring, remodeled kitchen with refinished cabinets, granite counters and stainless steel appliances, remodeled baths with tumbled stone (snail shower in master), vessel sinks, marble counters, new fixtures, new roof and A/C, plantation shutters, and much, much more.
I could drone on, but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Feast your eyes on eighteen thousand more.
