This contemporary dwelling in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona, has a lengthy list of attributes:
It’s zoned mixed-use residential and/or commercial. The live/work space offers room to expand or could be reconfigured to condominiums or apartments.
It’s striking. Visually arresting, the architectural house features open-plan areas, high ceilings and indoor-outdoor room flow.
It’s urban. Set in flourishing Old Town Scottsdale, the residence is near shopping, entertainment and dining.
A steel, concrete and glass façade sets the ultra-modern tone for the 8,200 square feet of space in the single-family house. Windows run the length of the 36-foot-tall foyer.
Triple-stacked glass steps with metal railings allow natural light into the stairwell, which spans three levels also accessible by elevator.
A bedroom balcony overlooks the main living room, which spans two stories. A central fireplace is framed by a wall of glass that opens to a terrace with another fireplace and a spot for al fresco dining.
An indoor, more formal dining space with a teak wood accent wall sits off the living room and connects to the kitchen, where a waterfall edge marble island offers additional prep space and seating. Wood grain, frosted glass and stainless finishes pop against the kitchen’s two dark walls.
Tray ceilings top the dining room and kitchen, which features Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.
Patio space sits off some of the rooms, which include a media room, an office and a gym. Another room opens to a swimming pool with a waterfall feature. Walls enclose the pool and maintain privacy.
With a touch on an IPad, the 22 motorized shades with blackout capabilities can be adjusted to filter sunlight.
There are a total of four fireplaces, seven bedrooms and six bathrooms in the house, which was built in 2007.
Old Town Scottsdale is made up of nine neighborhoods that mix Old West heritage with modern urban living. Historic sites from the late 1880s rub elbows with restaurants, art galleries, nightclubs and other hotspots.
The pedestrian friendly area features an abundance of public art, the city’s oldest bar and a free trolley, among other attractions.
