In a vacation home like this, you’d have to be carefree.
The desert oasis, located 12 minutes north of Scottsdale in Carefree (Yes, that’s the actual name of the city.), flashes that MTV “Cribs” quality, designed with amenities to make jaws drop.

If there’s any doubt, check out the 3,000-square-foot great room. It’s so elegant and modern that it looks like the lobby of a luxury hotel. The windows gaze to panoramic views of the Black Mountain.
