Michaels Lists His Scottsdale Estate with Engel & Völkers

The long-time home of global entrepreneur and philanthropist Bret Michaels, has recently been listed by Engel & Völkers Scottsdale real estate advisor, Bob Nathan, for $3.299 million. Nathan comments, “We could not be more honored to list the stunning, resort-style home of our friend, philanthropist and local valley resident, Bret Michaels.” Situated in the geometric center of Scottsdale, this veritable 5+ acre “Playground Oasis in the Desert” lies just behind a secure river stone and wrought-iron gated entry. The 9,000 square foot compound’s variety of living spaces has been the location for numerous TV shows like The Big Interview with Dan Rather, MTV’s Cribs and Rock n Roll Road Trip with Sammy Hagar, as well as a number of Michaels’ music videos and print publications. “If the walls could talk,” Nathan remarks, “they’d be recounting for days the stories of the parties, good times and stars who’ve worked and played here.”

Cabo-style Desert Lifestyle Estate

Michaels' vision as it pertains to real estate acquisitions is simple, create something comfortable, and structurally sound with an amazing space to both entertain and enjoy an active lifestyle, set in a location in which people will love. An authentic Santa Fe architectural masterpiece, Michaels built out this 5-bed and 6 ½-bath estate with indoor and outdoor living in mind, filling it with custom design features too numerous to count, in addition to a separate guest house. Towering cacti and mature shade trees surround ornamental gardens blending seamlessly with the desert environs and one of the most sought after sunset views of the valley. The inside of the home brings to mind the natural surroundings, with its warm, desert tones and recessed spaces resembling adobe dwellings. An incredible oasis-like pool with custom waterslide, private dirt bike trail, and sports courts lit up on desert nights with authentic street lights are only a few of many features promising a lifestyle of enjoyment and relaxation. Nathan mentions, “There is the potential for the home to be sold completely turnkey with furniture included, minus the artwork. It’s a rare opportunity to own this type of property so close to downtown Scottsdale, and with such a grand scale of usable land.”
