This beautiful Mid-Century Modern home was designed by none other than Fred Guirey FAIA and was built by Mardian Construction.   This home has been renovated with an open floorplan, vaulted ceilings, modern kitchen and bath, ceramic “wood plank” tile and a recent asphalt shingle roof.

The main house is bright and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek “Mecho” shades that offer privacy when closed, and when open, views of a bricked, romantically lighted courtyard centered around majestic old olive trees.  The separate guesthouse is a bonus, offering a perfect place for office, guests and live-ins alike.

The Historic Neighborhood of Encanto Vista is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It offers historic significance and a wonderful location close to the lovely Encanto Park and Golf Course. The location is super easy to Downtown as well as easy freeway access.

It is set on a quiet street just steps to Encanto Park, golf and the historic Encanto-Palmcroft neighborhood, which is centrally located with easy access to light-rail, downtown/uptown businesses, shops, restaurants, museums and  the ASU Downtown Campus.

The owners suite has a large, tiled, walk-in shower, dual vanities, and a walk-in closet. There are two additional bedrooms appointed with historic features such as built-in cabinets, clerestory windows and an outdoor patio. The hall full-bath is spacious, with a tub and linen storage.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream, equipped with top-of-the-line stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, a large, double-waterfall countertop island with built-in microwave drawer, 6-burner gas stove, built-in, counter- depth refrigerator, and sliding shelves and drawers in each cupboard to virtually double storage space.

The floorplan includes classic indoor-outdoor charm combined with multiple cozy spots such as a breakfast nook with bench storage, a relaxing family room, and a great room with living room and dining room spaces.

The separate “casita” guesthouse is a 490sf(+-) suite with full bath, kitchenette nook, walk-in closet and lots of light. It has its own AC unit and is metered separately.

Outside, enjoy a soak in the luxurious 6+ person Jacuzzi above ground spa with Bluetooth audio, mood lighting and a waterfall. The two-car garage is accessed through a paved alley and includes an attached  tool shed. A convenience 110V circuit provides power for your plug-in hybrid car too! There is additional parking space in the front for a single car.

Tucked behind the guest house, there is a secured yard that can be used as a garden or play area, and along the side of the home there is covered storage space. Enjoy shade and privacy from low-water trees around the property with desert landscaping for easy maintenance.
