Description

This choice Blaine Drake designed home in Paradise Valley’s Stone Canyon is a rare find!

Designed in 1959-60, the home has had only two owners since new.  Combining a wonderful history with unspoiled original details and finishes, this house defines 1950’s and 60’s mid-century desert-modern living. Thoughtful additions, as well as modest updating, make this move-in ready or restore this home to create a sanctuary in the shadow of Camelback Mountain. Stunning red rock views surround this home located in the Stone Canyon area of Camelback Mountain. The original architectural details are intact including Drake signatures such as exposed wood and beam ceiling construction, natural wood finishes, original turquoise beams and a floating steel fireplace. The floor plan embraces indoor/outdoor relationships that wrap the pool and patios.

White tile floors, natural cork and original paneling keep this home authentic. The split-plan offers a generous master suite with built in closets and connected studio/office filled with abundant natural light and a separate entrance. There are three additional bedrooms, one with en-suite bath. The formal dining room offers a built-in buffet for entertaining and opens to the front patio. The current owners have enjoyed this comfortable home since the 1970s, completing the additions, all of which are seamless to the original design. It’s rare to find a Mid-Century home in such original condition that combines location, views and affordability, especially in Paradise Valley. New to market, this home is shown by appointment only.
