North Central Custom Modern

Attention to detail is paramount in this custom built, modern style, two-story home offered for the first time! This home exemplifies both coziness and openness, with high, soaring ceilings throughout—10 foot ceilings upstairs and 9 foot ceilings downstairs— all in a centrally located North Central, mountain adjacent setting! In addition, both bathrooms feature large, walk-in showers, with the upstairs bathroom including an elegant oval-soaking tub. The insulated concrete dwelling is extra energy efficient, with blown-in closed cell foam insulation which creates a virtual sealed envelope — including the garage. This is pristine living of the finest order.

Set near the end of Central Avenue in Sunnyslope, the elevated views of the surrounding Downtown Phoenix, North and South Mountain areas are grand! This home comes equipped with ample LED lighting throughout along with plenty of natural light, I-beam floating staircase, reeded glass doors, glass block windows, and double sliding glass doors. Among the high points, the architectural and design elements outside provide over 670 square feet of covered outdoor living space, as well as an outdoor island plumbed for a bar sink and powered with 220 and 110 amps. It is a veritable mountainside sanctuary.

Munster Residence – George Barris Architect

Nestled in the heart of the desirable (yet fictional) Mockingbird Heights sits this impeccable (and practically indestructible) Second Empire Victorian. Not many of these type of homes exist locally anymore and when they do they do, they don’t last on the market for long! Built on the ruins of a fort, this house was purchased by the Munster Family’s grandfather at the turn of last century and been under the same ownership ever since!

This home has all the charm you’d expect from such haunted homes of the era, dusty wine-cellars, hidden passages on the master staircase (don’t go down there!), quaint bathrooms, attics, trapdoors and dungeons, curated gothic landscaping and interior design, and coffin phone booths! Don’t let its appearance fool you, this house is old (and a little decrepit) but has survived much wear and tear, especially by the clumsy husband and patriarch, Herman!

It’s survived for more than a century under the same ownership and will definitely provide the perfect family home for those easily enchanted by its charms for years to come! The cobwebs are free, but sorry, the Munster Mobile does not convey!

NOTE: This Exclusive Listing is offered for one day only and EXPIRES at midnight on 10/31, don’t miss out!

South Mountain/Baseline Corridor Desert Lot

Not far from where Frank Lloyd Wright explored his first camp in Arizona, these unique desert lots are available separately or as a combined purchase allowing the owner to realize a custom architectural desert home of their own. Matthew Trzebiatowski, AIA, LEED AP, well known for his award-winning Xeros Residence, has completed significant design work for the owner. Conceived as two dwellings in dialog with each other, nearly all of the “heavy-lifting” has been done to investigate these lots including: survey, geotechnical borings, archeological study + endangered species analysis, and civil engineering investigations, which show how a compound of modern structures would set into this very beautiful natural landscape and wash.

Grading and drainage approval is in hand and a City of Phoenix building permit approved for the north lot (BRIDGE) and must be pulled by mid-September. Design Development work is done on the south lot (CANTILEVER), permit application is not begun yet. The architectural model concept images shows how the two buildings coexist in concept. The location along the Baseline Road corridor offers easy access to South Mountain Park and is close to the Raven GC, SMCC and freeway connection to Tempe/Mesa/Chandler with ease. Now offered at a fraction of the owners’ investment, each lot can be purchased, but the design would necessitate both parcels. Unspoiled land in this exciting corridor rarely comes available, let alone with designs and investigations of this caliber.
