This delightful desert-sensitive home was a custom design by revered Arizona Architect, Bennie Gonzales. With only two owners since it was new in 1968, the FIVE bedroom home offers a level of original detail often lost in these special houses. With block thermal massing, well placed siting select window placement, deep overhangs and oversized patios this home represents a graceful and timeless Arizona lifestyle seldom captured today. Five generous bedrooms and three large baths, this home easily lives to current standards. The home is in superb original condition.
The “Kiva” style fireplace anchors the living room den and the house flows beautifully with elegant spaces: Formal dining, large eat-in kitchen area, and oversized family room which open to the patio and pool through extra large wood and glass doors. Original signature details remain such as the “Art-Glass Studio” custom entry glass, wrought iron lamps and wood beamed ceilings for a traditional sense of regionalism in a modern home of its day so often imitated but seldom duplicated.
Large hallways and split floor plan make for easy living and the double-lot site (each lot offers approximately .42 acres) is complete with natural desert landscape and large adjacent arroyo offering remarkable views and privacy, as well as potential for future additions. The site offers a great view corridor of both distant Camelback Mountains and city skyline. This “Highline Canal” location is just a short walk to the adjacent South Mountain Park and offers easy access to a variety of locales from Downtown to ASU, while being surrounded by the natural beauty of the desert.
