Carefree Arizona is a special place. This small community located at the far northeast area of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area is positioned between the mining town of Cave Creek, and what is now Scottsdale. Originally developed in the early 1960’s, we’re often highlighting some of the original architects that helped shape this charming town of less than 4000.

One can only imagine the natural beauty and stunning backdrop that this community provided for this very special mid-century home. Designed and built in 1965 by one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s original apprentices, Architect Blaine Drake, the house remains nearly completely original.

For the MCM lover this present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to obtain a pristine and unchanged example of Drake’s signature design.  The classic “Arizona Tan” slump-block constructed home features materials and finishes that echo other significant designs from Blake created during a highly productive era for him.

This home offers original millwork and details which include Terrazzo Floors,  floor to ceiling glass, and exposed wood ceilings and beams. The appliances have been thoughtfully updated to reflect the original scale. Located on an incredible 1.6 acre natural desert lot, the sweeping views to the north and east offer stunning vistas of the Continental Mountains.
