Heron in Lake Margherite of McCormick RanchYou circled McCormick Ranch on your home search map with a bright red sharpie. One stroll through the greenbelt past the parks, lakes, restaurants, and award-winning schools was enough to convince you that this … this … was the Scottsdale you were after.

Perhaps you even took note of the few subdivisions that line the shores of Lake Margherite, the crown jewel of this desert oasis.

Private Boat Dock on the Island at McCormick RanchCould you just imagine the charmed lives of those fortunate home owners? Of course you could. You’ve cast an envious eye at the content residents who enjoy their morning coffee as they walk their dogs along the banks of the lake. You’ve marveled at the easy smiles and languid pace that fly in the face of the uptight, go-go world that exists beyond these grassy confines.

If only you could afford it.

Guess what? You can.

8210 E. Del Claro at the Island in McCormick RanchTucked within the coveted Island at McCormick Ranch subdivision, the dazzling home at 8210 E. Del Claro is nothing short of a revelation. Within a leisurely stroll of the lake, but without the lakefront pricing, this exquisitely remodeled contemporary features 4 bedrooms plus a den, 3 baths, private swimming pool, and that rarest of McCormick Ranch birds … an honest to goodness three car garage.

The upgrades … where to begin? Travertine flooring greets you at the front courtyard, and follows you inside the home.

Ah, the kitchen.  Completely overhauled with new high gloss white cabinets, quartz counter tops, stainless steel Bosch oven and microwave, stainless steel LG refrigerator, Bosch cooktop, and Energy Star LG dishwasher, this kitchen represents modern living at its finest.

Master shower at 8210 E. Del ClaroNot to be outshone, the redesigned master bathroom commands attention with its new oversized tub and spacious walk-in shower.

swimming poolThe generous-sized swimming pool was upgraded in 2012 with a pebble surface, travertine paver surrounds, removable child fencing, Intellichlor salt system, new Pentair cartridge filter, and a new 5 speed variable Pentair Intelliflo pump.

The owners weren’t done in the backyard. They also built new shade covers on two rear patios, overhauled the landscaping (including sprinkler lines), and more.backyard
