To call this beautiful Estate Los Arboles home in McCormick Ranch a simple remodel would be a disservice. This Camelot Embassy model has been utterly transformed from a dated time capsule with great bones and potential into a modern Tuscan showplace. This was no slap-dash investor fix and flip with the same formulaic greys and whites that everyone else is currently buying at Remodels R Us, but a labor of love crafted to the demanding tastes of an owner who actually lived in the home.
The wall between the living room and family room was opened up to give the home a more modern, great room feel. The sunken living room, which was common in homes of this vintage across McCormick Ranch, was filled in. The kitchen was opened up to the family room … and oh, what a kitchen it is! All new (in 2014) cabinetry with loads of storage, slab granite counters, stainless steel appliances and vent hood, pendant and recessed lighting, a large walk-in pantry, breakfast nook with bay windows and more make it a must see.
Two gunslot windows on either side of the fireplace were replaced and expanded to bring in more natural light and take advantage of the view of the inviting backyard.
Where there was once a center atrium and bar, a huge walk-in master closet (complete with an organization system) now stands. The original closet was removed, paving the way for an expanded and fully remodeled master bathroom with a separate tub and shower. Anyone familiar with the limitations of late 1970s and early 1980s construction knows exactly what a rarity it is to find a decent sized master bath OR a generous master closet in these parts, let alone BOTH!
Indeed, this home is a unicorn.
Versailles pattern tumbled travertine stone flooring stretches throughout the entire home. Plantation shutters cover the windows, not that excessive sun is an issue with the ideal North/South exposure on a prime corner lot. Elevated ceilings greet you at the front door, accentuating the modern feel of the architecture.
The fourth bedroom was converted to a den/office; its entryway relocated to the front foyer. Even the laundry room is a work of art with new (2014) cabinetry, granite counter, and sink.
The backyard is, itself, a great place to entertain under the large covered patio, or cool off with a dip in the pool. Not relaxing enough? Slip into the in-ground spa that underscores one simple, but not to be overlooked asset this home has over other properties across McCormick Ranch: natural gas.
Estate Los Arboles is one of the ONLY pockets of McCormick Ranch that is serviced by Southwest Gas, meaning you can actually heat a pool here without spending a small fortune on propane. Yes, I’m looking at you, winter visitors!
With immediate neighborhood access to the walking path / greenbelt that stretches throughout the Ranch, it is a quick stroll to Comanche Park to the East, and the booming shopping center of Paseo Village to the West. New establishments like The Vig, Luci’s at the Grove (currently under construction – slated to open in the fall), Starbucks, and LA Fitness join community favorites like Lox Stock & Bagel to turn this once-sleepy center into one of the most vibrant hubs in the area. And you don’t even need a car to get there!

Get ready, North Scottsdale home buyers!
I know you have had your house hunt focused on McDowell Mountain Ranch, one of the most coveted planned communities in all of Scottsdale. I also know you have been frustrated as you scour the major Real Estate sites for the perfect home, refreshing your search every five minutes in hopes that the skies will part and the new listing you have been waiting for will finally appear. Something smaller and manageable, but not cramped or lacking privacy. Something affordable, but not at the cost of tasteful finishes. Where you don’t pay through the nose for someone else’s hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of upgrades, and can still move right in without having to change out all the dated cosmetics of a time capsule. You don’t need a sprawling yard that will require a team of goats grazing around the clock to manage, but a private pool sure would be nice. Not one of those glorified hot tubs that has been stretched just enough to be considered a pool either, but an honest to goodness pool. Perhaps, with a water feature? Maybe even a shaded, swim-up seating area for entertaining?
I am pleased to inform you that your unicorn has arrived.
Hitting the open market this weekend at the sublimely low price of $424,000, this gem is ideally suited to full-time residents and seasonal home buyers alike. With ready access to all of the amenities you love about McDowell Mountain Ranch, as well as immediate access to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve Gateway (hiking, etc) and the Loop 101 freeway, you’ll know this is home from the moment you pull up to the curb.
UPDATE: THIS LISTING IS NOW LIVE ON THE MLS!

Welcome to Belmont at Triple Crown.
Nestled in the heart of Scottsdale’s renowned Triple Crown community along the Tatum corridor, Belmont is the crown jewel of the prestigious 85254 zip code. A gated “lock and leave” subdivision which beckons seasonal and year-round residents alike, it features the appealing newer, block construction of Centex Homes in an ideal central location. With all of the privacy of single-family homes on more manageable “patio home” style lots, residents enjoy a lifestyle of private enjoyment that does not sentence them to hours on end of excessive landscape maintenance.
And within Belmont at Triple Crown, we just so happen to have listed its finest home for sale.
Located in the center of the complex for added security, and away from any busy streets, the home at 4841 E. Wagoner Rd is replete with upgrades and extras over and above the typical offering.
The huge island kitchen includes upgraded white cabinetry, high-level slab granite counter tops, upgraded appliances, upgraded lighting an fixtures, and would be quite at home in a property twice the size of this 1952 square foot patio home.
Ceramic tile greets you at the front door and kitchen. Hardwood floors extend through the living, dining and family rooms. The bathrooms and laundry room feature upgraded marble flooring.
The family room features a gas fireplace and highly upgraded Anderson sliding glass doors. The South-facing backyard orientation allows for plenty of natural light. For those occasions when you’d rather block out the sun rather than invite it in, there are plantation shutters throughout the home in addition to a fully retractable back patio awning (remote control operated) that shades the entire patio area.
In addition to a guest bedroom and den/office, this wonderful home includes a generous master suite (master bedroom suite is 20′ x 18′) with two closets (one walk-in), double-sink vanity and separate shower and tub in the master bathroom.
The Spanish architecture of the home includes a full tile roof and a mission bell tower look to the front elevation.
In addition to the cosmetic upgrades, the home features many structural improvements including a newer A/C unit, newer water heater, soft water system, etc.
The community features a heated pool and spa in addition to the clubhouse and gym/exercise room. In fact, the walking path right next to the home leads directly to those amenities.
If you are ready to reclaim your weekends by abandoning the oversized yard that seemed like such a necessity at one time, you owe it to yourself to view this property. Give up the lawnmower, not your privacy.
Whether a jet-setter for business or pleasure who needs a lower maintenance home in a secure community for those times when you have to drop everything and leave for a month, or simply at a stage in life when you want single-family living, just minus the weekly headaches of yardwork, this is the home for you.
Call or email Paul Slaybaugh with Realty Executives today to arrange a private viewing of this stunning home.
