About Mrs Piper: This remarkable woman learned about philanthropy from her first husband, Paul Galvin, the founder of Motorola. After his death she married Kenneth Piper, vice president of Motorola, and moved to Paradise Valley in the late 1960’s. Known for her astute understanding of the organizations and projects she supported, she wrote that one must conduct philanthropic work with “judgment and heart.” She spent many hours each day at her desk responding to requests and corresponding with organizations, individuals, and scholarship recipients.

This large and beautiful home hugs the horizontal plane to retain an unassuming facade to the street; inside the interiors open up to soaring ceilings and luxuriant courtyards. A courtyard colonnade continues in repetition, offering light-filled and dramatic gallery-style spaces within.

The current owners oversaw a complete and beautiful renovation of the home, updating and editing the design to retain the best elements by connecting the space in a modern fashion, and to infuse the home with lasting quality.
