When you targeted McCormick Ranch as the apex destination for your new home search, you did so for one of several reasons. It might have been the prime, central location; amenities such as the renowned walking paths, lakes and parks; the award-winning schools or …
To get your hands on one of the lush, oversized lots that are about as common as a duck-billed unicorn in other parts of the Valley.
Even within the confines of McCormick Ranch, there are lots, and then there are LOTS. Our new listing at 8001 N. Del Laton stands apart from the crowd with a whole lot of lot. No equivocation, this is one of the best pieces of property within Scottsdale’s most popular master planned community.
Featuring private gated access to the walking path that runs directly behind the property (leads to Rotary Park), this one of a kind parcel of almost 18,000 square feet is simply magnificent. Highlighted by a heated pebble-tec pool and spa, the backyard is the paradise your entertainer’s heart desires. Whether you use the generous space to stage a wedding reception or game of tackle football is up to you.
Did we mention this prized parcel comes with a house?
Just shy of 2500 square feet, the Von Dix built home in the Tierra Feliz subdivision features 3 bedrooms and 2 & 1/2 baths. Originally four bedrooms, one room was converted into, perhaps, the largest walk-in closet in McCormick Ranch.
Over the past decade, the owner has eliminated the dated step-ups and step-downs that vex many McCormick Ranch home shoppers, and opened up the wall between the living room and family room to create a flowing great room concept.
The master bath has been completely remodeled with slate stone tile flooring, counter tops and shower/tub surrounds. The tub, itself, was added where the original closet had been.
Ever cognizant of the warm, sunny days and your energy usage in the summer months, the owner has installed plantation shutters throughout much of the home and replaced the original sliding glass doors in the family room and the bay windows in the breakfast nook with dual-pane Pellas. This home does not include the soaring vaulted ceilings that certain buyers initially covet, before realizing that extra cubic footage requires cooling. The newer A/C will help keep those June – August electric bills down as well.
Throw in a roof that was replaced a couple years ago and a complete exterior paint job in May of 2012, and you’ve yourself got one special offering.
Are you the type that likes to add your own finishing touches? The sky is the limit in terms of the value that can be supported on this lot in this location, so bring your ideas both big and small. The setting can achieve whatever your imagination can conceive.
