This award winning architectural work by John Douglas FAIA represents a timeless desert modern home built for Arizona living. A luxury home created at a sustainable scale, this residence features custom block construction, deep overhangs and a shaded native landscape that is at one with the location. The floorplan offers generous public spaces, secluded patios, and large bedrooms. Soaring ceilings open to the impressive views of Camelback Mountain and the indoor-outdoor connection is unrivaled. Interior finishes include bluestone slate, maple floors and millwork, and exposed block for an enduring and ageless look.
Subtle echoes of Wright-influenced organic design are reflected in the perfect scale of this home as well as the architect’s signature custom copper detailing. The home offers ample storage as well as four bedrooms and a large office. The master suite offers the mountain view and direct patio access: the master bath includes a steam shower and adjacent walk-in closet. The kitchen opens to the dining and family-room for convenience and includes architectural granite counters and an oversized walk-in pantry. The entry and living room are anchored by an oversized hearth with stone apron; also included is a salt water coral reef aquarium.
This home was recipient of the Environmental Excellence Award, 1996. The Landscape was by Christy Ten Eyck, FASLA. The location is in the very heart of Paradise Valley and will amaze you with it’s natural beauty and superb convenience. Priced significantly under replacement cost, this is a rare opportunity to own a home by what we consider to be one of the master architects of our region.
