A stone walkway leads through a rock garden dotted with cacti, palms and succulents to the gate of a walled-off courtyard. One side of the courtyard contains a broad fireplace. There’s ample space for seating and an outdoor living area.
Horizontal bands of glass add visual interest to the massive front door, which is sheltered by a portico supported by stacked stone columns.
Designed for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining, the home’s high-ceiling great room has walls of glass that recede and open to a covered patio. Not that you can take your eyes off the detailed tray-type ceilings and stone floor long enough to look through to the back of the house.
Multiple seating areas, formal and informal dining areas, a wet bar and a fireplace make up this central room. Along one side of the formal dining area is a glass-enclosed wine display and tasting room.
Off the great room is the completely renovated ultra-modern kitchen with two islands – one for eating and one for prep. Turquoise-colored accents pop against the shiny gray and black surfaces.
The primary suite, with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace and multiple seating areas, is separated from the other four en-suite bedrooms. The 6,866 square feet of living space also contains an additional half-bathroom, an office and an expansive laundry room.
The backyard swimming pool area has a covered outdoor kitchen with bar seating as well as fire elements. A raised spa adjoins the waterfall-fed swimming pool.
An island of lawn beyond the firepit seating area and a four-car garage complete the one acre of grounds.
The property is roughly 16 miles from Phoenix and 7 miles from Scottsdale, Arizona.
