A NEW YEAR OFTEN BRINGS CHANGE
There is much in the positive & favorable to say about residing here at La Privada for the past year & five months. My first attraction was a visual one as I drove in the main gate entrance greeted with expansive pristine grounds & detailed landscaping, vibrant floral colors, lush lawn areas & gorgeous trees of diversity. Like a frame on a painting canvas with charming old-world Swiss Chalet brink enhanced European style buidlings with court yards, blending harmoniously with splashes of modern contemporary. The main pool, jacuzzi, bbq & firepit areas are spacious, tastefully luxurious & inviting, the min pool area is like a hidden sanctuary with a relaxing rock water feature for those that prefer a less active spot. This property is far from the newer cookie cutter rental communities where you feel like you are squeezed into a sardine can lacking in uniqueness. Yes of course there are always the "wish they had this or that" to rental properties. I see it as advisable to be realistic when one is not custom home building, to fairly weigh out their preferences & personal priorities. I would give La Privada 5 full stars, vs 4 & 1/2 if the kitchen & bath cabinets were upgraded & my preference is gas vs wood burning fire places, & better sound insulation (bldg codes in the '70's are not as they are now). But I view the pluses far outweigh the minuses. Another plus is the location, it could not be be more ideal, convenient & out of the busy hustle, but so nearby to everything that is happening. No matter your hobbies, activities or athletics, this area has it all, just within a few mins drive or even walk. But wait.....what else makes La Privad well worth your consideration & an in person visit, is the Staff here! The two teams of personable, courteous, well polished & capable professionals, from the ladies in the Leasing Office under the gracious & capable leadership of Arrianna to the highly skilled quick responding Maintenance team led by an attention to detail & efficient Alex...well put it all together & you have a most well seasoned two team effort doing their best to accomodate & offer their residents a pleasant place to call home. A definite WIN WIN! I see no reason why I will not be renewing my lease this year & continue enjoying my "heart has found it's home" experience here at lovely La Privada at Scottsdale Ranch.
