If you’re looking for a house in Ocotillo, boy, has Bruce Arians got a deal for you.

The now-retired Arizona Cardinals head coach has put his five-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot home in the Vistas at Ocotillo on the market, asking a cool $1.5 million.

Buyers will get a lot for their money, judging by the description of the palatial digs on real estate Multilist.

The 18,000-square-foot lakefront property not only offers great views of the Ocotillo Golf Course, but is built to impress from the time a visitor rolls up on the cobblestone circular driveway to the front door.

There, a privately gated courtyard with a gas fire pit and water feature welcomes a visitor. Once you get through the front door, you’ll find a wall of glass overlooking a vanishing edge infinity pool that appears to be flowing, according to the description.

Start with the kitchen: From the hand-painted ceilings to the custom cabinetry and built-in Miele expresso and coffee bar, your inner gourmet is bound to be delighted. High-end appliances with names like Sub-Zero and Wolf and a custom island are complimented by two wine refrigerators and a raised breakfast bar.

Oh, and don’t worry about noise: The kitchen walls – like those of the adjacent fireplace-equipped family room – are sound-proofed.

And if you don’t need to chill your wine in the fridge, rest assured: A spacious 500-plus bottle wine cellar – temperature controlled, of course – can take care of that bottle of Domaine Leroy Musigny Grand Cru you brought home after your last visit to France.

And you can take that bottle of pinot noir to a nearby private sunken outdoor lounge, “complete with an awe-inspiring copper waterfall feature that is also visible from your wall of glass in the upstairs entrance,” the Realtor’s Multilist description notes.

That’s located, by the way, in a fully decked-out basement that also includes a great room with kitchenette, two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom and a third bedroom with its own entrance to a full bathroom.

Elegance marks every inch of the house, including the handsomely decorated office and the private guest room – complete with en suite bathroom and private entrance.

The master suite is complete with a stone fireplace, exposed wood rafters and a private exit to the backyard – if you can leave the stunning master bathroom with its separate vanities, walk-in custom shower, custom walk-in closet with washer and dryer and soaker tub.

If you feel the need to step outside, you’re in luck. A sunken outdoor lounge leads to a multi-tiered backyard with the pool, outdoor fireplace, grass side yard and a covered patio with built-in barbecue and restaurant-grade ceiling-mounted gas heaters.

Small wonder the Multilist description calls it “truly your own personal resort.”
