Here’s an amazing opportunity ti live in Great Architecture! Recently freshened, the Manker Residence is now available for Lease.

Inside, the original nature and materiality of the home has been widely maintained, excepting some very sensitive updates that were made with the assistance of Architect John Douglas.

This home features superb views of the surrounding mountains, and interiors that include the original Mahogany millwork and cabinets, plus butt-glazed windows, dramatic steel and concrete fireplace, post and beam exposed framing and wood ceilings.

The Manker home was designed by Architect Blaine Drake for the Dr. Raymond Manker Family, when called to be the minister for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix, whose newly completed building on Lincoln Drive in Paradise Valley was also designed by Blake in 1961. Today, the Manker home remains a cherished example of Mr. Drake’s work.

Architect Blaine Drake was one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s original apprentices and went on to establish his Arizona practice in 1945. Built for and with the original Owners who still reside in the home, this house is a beautiful study in light and space; a perfect example of how delicately architecture can sit upon the landscape in the Desert. Adjacent to a wide and beautiful arroyo, this home features a large walk out deck to the west, which opens up the home to the views and natural landscape.
