Sarah Palin isn’t the only one with a Scottsdale home to sell! November and December were busy months for North Scottsdale luxury real estate, and a few famous athletes got in on the action and put their Scottsdale homes on the market. If you’re in the market for a luxury home in this area, you should check out the elegant features you’ll find in their homes and then set off on your own quest in DC Ranch!
Jerry Hairston Jr.’s Home Near DC Ranch
This retired baseball player – who last played for the L.A. Dodgers – put his 5,472-square-foot Scottsdale home up for sale in early December. The home, which is located in the gated La Strada neighborhood next to DC Ranch’s Desert Camp Village, was constructed in 2003. But it was renovated right before the athlete bought it in 2012 for $1.09 million. He is now listing it at $2.05 million.
This Scottsdale luxury home has 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, but a few features really set it apart. It has a home theater with 3 TVs on the wall (check out one of our similar listings, also in La Strada) and lots of leather seating. The house also has a gourmet kitchen with a large island, double ovens, and upgraded appliances. Plus, throughout the house, you’ll find hardwood flooring, several fireplaces, and stonework inside and out. There’s even a peaceful courtyard, complete with trees. The backyard is equally impressive, with a pool and slide, spa, putting green, sport court, and built-in barbecue.
This home is on 95th Way, between North Pima Road and East Thompson Peak Parkway. If you’re looking for a Scottsdale luxury home in this area, DC Ranch has a few you’ll love. Here is another, also in the tucked away La Strada community, and one example in DC Ranch is this 4,810 square-foot custom home with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The plentiful stonework, cozy courtyard, gourmet kitchen, and amazing views of the McDowell Mountains will remind you of the Scottsdale luxury home Jerry Hairston, Jr. has on the market!
Craig Janney’s Arcadia Home
Another former athlete listed his Scottsdale home for sale toward the end of 2015. Craig Janney is a former hockey player who listed his 4,872-square-foot house near Scottsdale and Camelback Roads in the prestigious Arcadia neighborhood. The listing price for his home, which has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, is $2.395 million. The house was built in 2003, and Janney and his wife bought it in 2013 for $1.62 million.
With nearly 4,900 square feet, this Santa Barbara Tuscan-style house may be too large for the Janneys these days, since their daughter is leaving for college. But it may be perfect for anyone looking for a spacious home with a billiards room, chef’s kitchen, hardwood floors, basement, and gorgeous outdoor area. In fact, the land surrounding this house just may be what sets it apart from other Scottsdale luxury homes. It sits on a little under 1 acre of land and has lots of shade trees, covered patios, a large, refreshing pool, and breathtaking mountain views.
Janney’s Scottsdale home is light, bright, and airy. If you’re looking for a home with a similar style, you’ll appreciate this DC Ranch home for sale. This Scottsdale luxury home has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a beautiful yard that features a Pebble Tec pool, fireplace, spa, and barbecue. Plus, you can see some amazing views of the nearby mountains and golf course, since this home is on the fourth fairway of the Country Club at DC Ranch golf course!
These two athletes selling Scottsdale luxury homes are not the first, and they certainly won’t be the last. Luckily, there are plenty of luxurious houses for sale in the DC Ranch area so you can buy your own dream home. When that time comes, contact The Matheson Team for help finding a home you’ll love.
