Looking for a first time home, investment property, place to park the ASU student(s) in your life, or just an all around great little starter home in North Tempe? This little 3/2 single family gem is just the ticket! With all the heavy lifting done (newer roof, A/C, kitchen, baths, windows, flooring, etc), the only thing missing … is you!
Check out the full property details below, then contact me today to schedule a viewing.
Oh, and you’ll want to bring your checkbook. Trust me.
You 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.
Could 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.
Tucked 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.
And the kitchen. 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.
Not to be outshone, the redesigned master bathroom commands attention with its new oversized tub and spacious walk-in shower. Bathrooms 2 & 3 are certainly no slouches either with their own custom touches. All finishes, from the stone surrounds to the plumbing fixtures and cabinet hardware were painstakingly selected by homeowners who cut no corners and spared no expense in bringing their vision to life.
The 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.
This was not a property that was intended for sale. This was a labor of love, as evidenced by the structural improvements that accompanied the cosmetic enhancements.
All rooms wired with network and coax outlets? Check.
Living room wired for surround sound? Check.

This property is a rare gem, and do you know who deserves the privilege of calling it home?

There are remodels and there are REMODELS. This exquisite home stands out in the sea of haphazard remodels and cheap investor fix and flips that dominate the Scottsdale and Phoenix Real Estate market at present.
Located in the highly coveted Sequoya / Cocopah / Chaparral school district trio, this property features over 2200 square feet of remodeled excellence. Complimenting the mid 1990s architecture (rare newer home in this location), recent renovations include a complete kitchen overhaul. Highly upgraded level 4 slab granite counters and tumbled stone backsplash with granite in-lays top the warm, furniture-grade cabinetry. Whether you are a culinary novice or an accomplished Iron Chef, the new stainless steel Kitchenaid appliances are an absolute delight. As to the generous kitchen island, the term “continent” might be more appropriate. Featuring additional storage, breakfast bar and built-in wine rack, this is a work of carpentry art.
Much as you’ll want to linger in your new kitchen to savor every dining experience, you’ll eventually be drawn away by the allure of additional surprises. The sumptuous master bathroom is nothing short of a revelation. Featuring the same furniture grade cabinetry and slab granite counter tops that make the kitchen so appealing, the master bath includes a walk-in shower with dual showerheads. In need of a little rest and relaxation? There is no better place to unwind than in the new deep soaking tub. Forget about the day’s stresses until you reluctantly emerge to rejoin the land of the living.
Rounding out the master suite is a generous walk-in closet, and new French doors that lead directly to the backyard.
Of course, you need not travel far to find additional upgrades, for you are greeted with beautiful 20″ porcelain tile and new extra-tall baseboards as soon as you step through the front door. Along with new plantation shutters, ceiling fans and light fixtures, these features stretch throughout the home. Even the guest bath and laundry room have been overhauled with the same upgraded cabinetry and granite that we encountered in the kitchen and master bath. In short, nothing has been left undone.
As you might suspect from the amazing attention to detail, this unique home was painstakingly transformed by the current owners over the course of nine months to serve as their ultimate sanctuary. This was not to be a fix and flip, plans have simply changed.
The flexible floor plan includes two bedroom plus a den (could easily be converted to a third bedroom if desired), and an open great room concept. This is low maintenance living as the homeowner’s association is responsible for front lawn maintenance. The small patch of grass in the rear yard offers an inviting, manageable retreat. Suitable for permanent and seasonal living alike, the property is well-matched to the needs of a wide range of buyers. Whether you are searching for a home in the most coveted school district in the state or you are in the market for lock-and-leave vacation living, 4128 E. Hancock Drive can accommodate you.
There are many more upgrades than I can possibly list here, but I would be remiss not to mention the stacked slate stone (gas) fireplace in the family room, new French doors in the breakfast area, surround sound, security system and all new interior paint. You simply must view this property in person to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.
Offered for sale at $400,000.
