Scottsdale Arizona, known for its beautiful golf courses, luxurious resorts, and stunning array of shopping and dining options enjoys a spectacular backdrop of the warm, sunny Arizona climate. Those familiar with the area also cherish the amazing mountain views, framed by the incomparable McDowell Sonoran Mountain Preserve and its 68,000 acres of pristine natural wilderness.

Yet, a ten-minute drive east and you are in another world, that of the charming community of Fountain Hills.  This other world possesses world-class golf courses, a vibrant cultural atmosphere and best of all, views that are even more stunning! Iconic mountain ranges reminiscent of a national geographic pictorial surround you. The Superstition Mountains tower in the distance. The giant sentinel of Four Peaks Mountain gracefully embraces additional mountain ranges and vistas that will take your breath away.

And there is a fountain! At the heart of this friendly, world-class community is one of the world’s tallest fountains, a centerpiece that elicits a smile from anyone fortunate enough to enjoy its beauty and majesty from any corner of the community.

Only a very few homes enjoy the highest reaches of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, and even fewer possess the panorama of these mountain and fountain views.

So, when your life’s achievements have allowed the opportunity to enjoy the very best in architecture, fit and finish, 14408 E Shadow Canyon Drive is the home you might design and the homesite you would place it on!

Created by master builder M. S. Dudley for the current owners, this is an elegant interpretation of timeless style and extravagant spaces designed with family and friends in mind. Surrounded by the lush Sonoran Desert landscape of the upper McDowells, you will see deer, coyotes and a wide variety of birds. Stargazers will be thrilled to be part of one of the world’s first Dark Sky Communities.

Lavishly appointed with rich hardwoods, intricate stonework, and opulent furnishings, the many courtyards, patios, and balconies provide space for fun gatherings or creative contemplation. The Kitchen is a showpiece fit for the most creative of chefs, with a sunny breakfast room and opulent dining room for 8 or more. The centerpiece of all of this is the 1100 bottle, temperature-controlled wine room with stunning rustic detail.

Downstairs there’s a dynamic 8-12 person movie theatre, sports-day room with pool table, multi-sided ”Cheers” style cocktail bar and beverage coolers perfect for game day or party nights.  The home features an executive office, 4 suited bedrooms, multiple fireplaces and two laundries.

The outdoor spaces are equally intriguing! Morning sun and mountain views begin the day. The pool-spa area allows amazing parties for the largest crowd or just the two of you, while the outdoor kitchen and formal outdoor dining portico and fireplace create an intimate space no matter how many join the party. The front courtyard with firepit, fountain and lounging portico provides a serene atmosphere for quiet conversation.

The home is offered fully outfitted with the finest furnishings and household goods, perfectly convenient for the next, fortunate owners.   EG
