Gerry Jones Carefree Ranch Estate on Over 10 Acres


– 9240 East Brahma Road Scottsdale, Arizona-

Experience Distinctive Desert Living

Set on nearly 11 acres of natural desert landscape, this custom-built estate is the perfect blend of elegance and privacy. Situated in the exclusive Carefree Ranch Homesteads enclave, the home boasts breathtaking, 360-degree views of the vast valley and distant night lights.

Miles of Views, Yet Minutes From Everything

More than just a home, the expansive property dictates a way of life. Drink in the majestic mountain vistas as you sip your morning coffee on the front patio — watching the sun rise over the vibrant golf course. Savor your evening meal in the outdoor dining room as the sun sets on an endless horizon. Relax under the stars, where seclusion and serenity abound.

The simple pleasures of this peaceful paradise are complemented by the property’s close proximity to downtown Carefree and Cave Creek, as well as the dining, shopping and entertainment offerings of nearby North Scottsdale. Living inside the guarded gates of Carefree Ranch truly provides the best of both worlds.

Legendary Architecture Meets Modern Luxury

The estate’s unique footprint is the signature of renowned Arizona architect Gerry Jones, who has designed more than 300 mountaintop homes during his storied career. A decorated World War II and Korean War veteran, he is credited with designing the town of Carefree’s intricate framework over 50 years ago. Today, at the age of 91, his homes are still among the most sought-after in all of Arizona.

The glorious architecture of this one-of-a-kind residence was recently enhanced by numerous custom renovations.  A new kitchen, remodeled baths, intricate tile work and a retractable glass wall that brings the outdoors in, are among the modern luxury enhancements.

With its unique appointment, expertly-crafted design and world-class amenities, this significant estate offers an unparalleled luxury lifestyle.

Additional Detail

This impressive home was tastefully remodeled in 2013. The remodel was extensive, yet it carefully maintained the essence and design elements Gerry Jones is so well-known for.

The home sits on just under 11 acres and is located in the prestigious Carefree Ranch Homesteads neighborhood. Breathtaking views abound from every corner of the property. From the front of the home, you overlook the Chiricahua Course at Desert Mountain.  From the rear of the home, you will be able to experience incredible sunsets and take in tranquil valley and city light views from your private, serene perch on the hill.

The home has a lovely floorplan flow with the master suite and office on the east side of the home, centrally located living and dining areas, and guest suites on the west side of the home.

You will find top-of-the-line appliances and conveniences in the newly designed kitchen with large island and plenty of storage. Entertaining is easy with an open dining area with patio access next to the kitchen and a pass-through to the covered outdoor dining area with a built-in BBQ.

The living area is outfitted with retractable glass doors to maximize the indoor/outdoor experience and to capitalize on the breathtaking views. Outside and below the living room terrace is the pool and you will also find a spa located off of the master wing.

The elegant master suite on the main level comes with a roomy master bath, a large sitting area with fireplace and a private outdoor seating area. A sizable office with powder room and outdoor seating area is adjacent to the master suite.

The guest suites are located on the other side of the home in their own wing. Each of the three bedrooms has an en suite bathroom featuring hand-selected custom tile as well as a private patio. Currently, one of the rooms is being utilized as a study. A rear exit in the guest wing allows for access to the pool area and the entertaining areas.

Carefree Ranch abuts the golf community of Desert Mountain and there is a private access gate if the homeowner is a member of the Desert Mountain Club.

If you are looking for impeccable design, superb craftsmanship, magnificent views and privacy, this is the perfect home.
