There are few homes remaining that represent the “Arizona School” of Desert Modern Architecture. The Halas House designed by award-winning, “Master of the Southwest” Architect Eddie Jones, FAIA is one of them! Immaculately kept by the original family, this home is being offered for the first time ever. Featured in many publications, this award-winning home nestles into the hillside of Camelback Mountain hillside offering a quiet, yet expressive design that is delightfully integrated into nature. With commanding views of Paradise Valley, the home offers superb brick masonry, copper construction, simply amazing detailing, and custom steel elements.
Soaring ceilings make the volume feel more spacious and the full-height glass walls bring seamless views and the outdoors in. The main ceiling feature a half-barrel vault in redwood while the custom millwork is outfitted in white oak. Open kitchen offers a plethora of storage and wonderful natural light, a gift of round skylights detail throughout this home. Not a single detail was overlooked in this custom home!
The plan is generous, flexible and perfectly sized; including a great room anchored by the circular masonry fireplace, formal dining and three bedrooms. One of the bedrooms opens into the owners suite for a convenient full office. The second guest room sports it’s own entrance, en-suite bath and built-in fold-down bed, bookcases and private access to the garage. You’ll find an enclosed glass solarium that is the perfect place for morning coffee, complete with a private side patio and a zen-like water feature. Fully sheltered and serene! The owners suite offers every detail from a large step-in closet, completely fitted in oak, to the bath suite complete with shower, soaking tub with views, separate double sinks and direct access to the pool. The sparkling lap pool is perfect-sized and ready for entertaining. There’s even an outdoor shower too!
You’ll never be short for storage with the three car garage, deep cabinets and separate shop/storeroom. The home offers back access off of Valle Vista Road for easy and private garage entry. Out front there’s a circular drive for guests leading up to the stunning arched front walkway. Perfectly sighted, the home is elevated well above street level for quiet spaces and to capture a view corridor that looks across the valley, from Mummy Mountain to Piestewa Peak and beyond! Behind the home is the glorious rock and desert terrain of Echo Canyon, easily enjoyed poolside or at the private entertaining patio below.
This is a rare opportunity that cannot be duplicated! Pride of continuous ownership is evident in this home and absolutely un-replicated anywhere near the asking price. This home will be shown strictly by appointment.
