Subdivision: Historic Town & Country Scottsdale
Signature mid-century modern Ralph Haver home in historic Town & Country Scottsdale. This vintage home features a classic floorplan and trademark Haver features such as a ‘clinker brick’ front facade, low-pitch roof, beamed front courtyard entry, vaulted ceilings and expansive windows. The front of the home features low-water native plants, mature palm trees, original clinker brick walls & planter boxes and new contemporary stainless steel house numbers. Once inside the private, gated entry courtyard, you’ll begin to experience the indoor/outdoor connection that Haver homes are so well known for. The courtyard is kitschy and cool, with it’s current tiki decor. The solid carved double front doors showcase the original craftsmanship of the home and a new bamboo-patterned low-E dual-pane sidelight adds personality to the formal entry.
This home blends the best of contemporary finishes, with timeless vintage style. Natural handcrafted contemporary pebble flooring throughout the home is paired with sustainable cork flooring in the living room. There are many eco-sensitive features throughout, including energy-saving cellular blinds, ceiling fans, new energy-star water heater (2010) (one of 2 water heaters), dual flush toilets in both bathrooms, low-water landscaping, front-load high-efficiency washer and dryer, environmentally-friendly faux zebrawood woodwork (finished with low VOC sealer) and ‘green’ concrete finishes in the bathrooms and living room.
This home’s floorplan features a separate family room and living room. The inviting family room overlooks the pool and the entry courtyard patio, with expansive windows. The cozy living room overlooks the back yard and features a custom wood-burning fireplace wall designed by local artisans Gore Design Co. (concrete hearth and shelves) and Hibbard Custom Cabinets (eco-sensitive zebrawood-faced fireplace surround).
The open kitchen with breakfast bar features white flat panel cabinetry and retro hardware, dual basin sink, laminate counters, pebble flooring and kitschy blue Big Chill refrigerator and dishwasher (energy-star rated). The dining room is open to the kitchen and living room and features an original Nutone intercom/radio system, which can take your ears back to 1959 (radio still works, intercom function is ‘as is’)!
There are 4 bedrooms, which make this the biggest home of the 4 styles offered in Town & Country Scottsdale. The master bedroom, which is oversize for the era, features a vaulted ceiling, 2 ceiling fans, a walk-in closet and an amazing private bathroom. The master bath features glass mosaic-tiled walls, custom floating faux zebrawood vanity with hard-wired under-cabinet lighting & retro polished chrome hardware, custom concrete counter with integrated sink (don’t forget to check out the subtle counter inlay!), wall-mounted sink faucet, retro bullet-style sconces, unique medicine cabinet, pebble floors, original terrazzo shower pan with sleek white tile shower surround and new dual flush toilet. The hall bathroom features unique brocade-patterned glass tiled sink wall, concrete counters with dual concrete sinks with wall-mounted faucets, custom floating faux zebrawood vanity with hard-wired under-cabinet lighting and modern white subway-tiled tub/shower with new modern fixtures. The 3 additional bedrooms all feature vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans and pebble flooring. One of the bedrooms features exposed block walls, which give a contemporary loft feel to the space. The hallway features an iconic reproduction bullet-style sconce light and original linen storage cabinetry.
A separate laundry room is located off the front courtyard patio and features a 2010 energy-star water heater and front load, high-efficiency washer and dryer. The rear yard features a covered patio, kidney-shaped diving pool, and newer landscaping, including bamboo, mesquite, pomegranate, lemon and lime trees. The side yard is fenced and has a storage shed and there are nice-quality sun screen shades on the covered patio.
This home is convenient to the airport, freeways (101, 202 and 143), ASU Main and Skysong, downtown Scottsdale (fine dining, shopping, nightlife, library and arts district) and the 14+ mile Scottsdale greenbelt (with lakes, dog parks, golf courses, walking/biking paths, volleyball courts, ‘The Wedge’ skate park, baseball diamonds, Boys and Girls Club, Eldorado Aquatic Center, Frisbee golf, kids play areas and pavillions/cabanas). This hip, modern home blends the best of new and old, unlike anything else on the market. As an added bonus, the home is listed on the National Register Of Historic Places and the inclusion on this exclusive, prestigious list allows the home to qualify for a reduction in property taxes for the next few years. The 2011 taxes are $707 (down from over $1400, prior to be registered)!Call Jennifer Hibbard at 602-908-5801 for more information!
