Backing to hillside open space, in the gated Reserve at Rock Springs, this very highly upgraded and updated home has everything you need for resort-style family living. The fabulous flow and layout are enhanced by new hardwood floors throughout the entire home. A 5 bedroom home also needs gathering spaces, and this house has an open feel and sight lines, yet offers a Living and Dining room separate but visible from the great room. The eat-in kitchen with massive island and stainless premium appliances features extensive upgraded cabinetry. It is supported by both a walk-in pantry and a butler’s pantry.
A handy powder room just off the family room, and an en-suite bedroom w. walk-in closet downstairs, give you flexibility. The window wall collapses to open up the great room to the beautiful backyard, with self-cleaning Shasta pool and spa with motorized cover, and shaded play and lounging space. Awnings extend half-way across the pool and the misters create your own oasis. An extended 2 car garage, separate single garage, and large parking pad handle vehicles and storage.
Up the wide staircase, you will find a split plan with the Master and den/playroom/office on one side of the landing, and 3 bedrooms plus Laundry on the other. The Master suite looks east for afternoon shade, and views of the open space and mountains. The broad hallway features built-in cabinetry running its entire length, plus linen storage. A large secondary bedroom is en-suite, while the other 2 share a full bath with dual sinks, and separate bath. All boast walk-in closets. The handy Upstairs laundry has cabinets & shelves galore.
This stunning large home is updated and move-in ready. Offered at $649,990

About the AuthorJohn Selman is an Associate Broker, with previous experience as a certified Luxury Agent at Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, and The Agency. John consults with clients, handling the purchase and sales of their homes, dives into the hunt for a great property with the goal of achieving positive equity at close whenever possible, enthusiastically showcases a home for sale to bring out its best features, and truly loves what he gets to do every day.
John moved to Engel & Voelkers to take advantage of their global reach in home and select lifestyle offerings, the experience and professionalism of their management and advisors, and E&V’s superlative marketing and support tools.
Having grown up around the world, he arrived in the Valley from Canada, 35 years ago, renovated central Phoenix properties during college, and is intimate with the best neighborhoods historically, and those now on the rise. John earned his MBA in marketing from Arizona State University, with an undergraduate focus on biology, finance and computer science, and continued to pursue advanced coursework as an executive.
As an e-marketing and sales executive, with stints with IBM and start-ups in San Francisco, Dallas, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Atlanta, New York, La Jolla and LA, his regular relocation home searches provided valuable experiences, both good and bad, and led to his real estate career.
John has practiced and taught the Consulting Sales process to the best sales people in business. A former #1 sales executive at IBM, and an instructor of executive education for IBM, he teaches, practices, and practically breathes the Consulting Sales Process.
John honed his luxury-specific marketing skills, re-positioning and invigorating his gourmet food and wine shop in downtown Malibu, initially as a side business. As a pioneer in email marketing and blogs, he delivered wine advice and sold rare wine across the country to America’s wealthiest collector's and some of the biggest names in entertainment and business.
Running his fine wine boutique, Malibu Village Wines, he consulted with auction houses, and worked with architects, cabinetmakers, contractors, and some of America’s best Realtors designing wine cellars for luxurious estates, and realized that Real Estate was what he wanted to concentrate on in his future.
Expanding with a bar and restaurant, he catered to the needs of some of the world's wealthiest business people and celebrities. Having created a shop that was a social hub for the wine community, built a wine clientele around the world, and co-founded the Wine Classic for ChildHelp charity, John decided it was time to move on from technology, food and wine, and focus on real estate- his other lifestyle passion.
He enthusiastically enjoys, and irreverently writes about homes, food and wine. He is passionate about all three, loves architecture, grapes, cooking, good renovation, old cars and motorcycles, his family, his Bulldog “Rugby”, and most (but not always all) of his friends.
In his rare free time, he coaches paddling sports on Tempe Town Lake, strums a guitar while singing offkey, visits his favorite old ski haunts and complains of aches and pains, avoids anyone carrying a rugby ball or organizing a "tour", travels up and down the coast seeking out great food & wine, looks for water to paddle SUPs or outriggers, and laughs at his dog.
