Arizona Best Real Estate is pleased to feature the work of Scottsdale based Kendle Design Collaborative. Kendle is also a member of Arizona Residential Architects (ARA), a distinguished organization of 15 leading architectural firms.
Few places exemplify true luxury like Paradise Valley, Arizona. Nestled amongst the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain, residents of Paradise Valley enjoy the diversity of architecture, sweeping mountain views, boutique resorts, public and private golf amenities such as Paradise Valley Country Club and borders Phoenix and Scottsdale. As the Crown Jewel of the Valley, the town is known for acre-plus lots and estates while maintaining its rural charm and affluent cache of not being populated with commercial buildings and businesses. Known as a "dark" town, low density lighting protects the night skies and extraordinary views.
A vision for all of these things were apparent to the owners of this soft contemporary masterpiece when it rose like a Phoenix from the ashes, transforming into what it is today: a refined modern estate.
In addition, this 12,000-plus-square-foot contemporary desert jewel resides near the base of Mummy Mountain on more than 2 acres including 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 3 powder rooms in the main house as well as 5 interior fireplaces, a 250-plus wine room, theater lounge and 6-car garage. The property also features a separate 2-bedroom, 2-bath guest home, a large exercise studio, spa quality locker room, steam room and dry sauna. The exterior of the home boasts a resort-style 33-foot saltwater negative edge pool enveloped by 3 exterior fireplaces and intimate seating areas. The outdoor spaces include a professional grade lighted tennis court and separate sport court.
The family room is the heart of the home with clearstory windows, fireplace and dramatic art walls leading to the wrap-around covered patio with built in BBQ, wet bar and cozy seating areas.
Retractable doors invite the outdoors in to capture the Arizona desert lifestyle. The James Bond-style steel, glass and limestone suspended staircase lead you to your gaming and entertainment lounge. Lutron and Crestron systems control the lighting, climate, fire featuers, audio, video and security systems.
The kitchen is complete with chef's table of fiddle-back Anigre wood, 3-position design, commercial-grade appliances and imported espresso station. Finishes include a unique blend of steel, book-matched East Indian Rosewood, Anigre and quartz surfaces.
The cantilevered front door punctuates the entry with exquisite art walls and views of Mummy Mountain.
Eight fireplace highlighted with blackened steel interiors, tumbled glass, masonry spheres of varying sizes and three-dimensional limestone accentuate comfortable seating areas. The family room fireplace is framed in polished quartz.
Bask in unparalleled views to the east from the comfort of your entertainment lounge patio.
This gated estate is perfect for those who appreciate the quality of soft-contemporary design.
