This Shea home was originally built in 1993, but very little remains of the original interior. This distinctive home underwent an extensive remodel in 2013-2014. The home was re-designed with an abundance of contemporary materials. The full renovation added many custom elements and modernized the space. The current owners have invested over $100,000 improving the home. This home has not been on the market since it was built. The new design will transport you to sublime retreat; fitting for a relaxed, yet elegant lifestyle.
This home’s stunning spaces aren’t immediately realized from the street. But, once you get to the entry, you will notice it’s not an ordinary house. The cul-de-sac lot offers 180 degrees of stunning lakefront views, from the rear of home. The front yard is lush and mature with winter lawn, palm trees, large pepper tree and lots of greenery. There is a generous-sized 3 car garage, with new garage doors/openers and built-in cabinetry.
Engineered cherry hardwood flooring flows throughout the main living spaces. The formal entry foyer leads to the living room, which overlooks the lake. The walls and niches are perfect for displaying art. The expansive anodized aluminum double opening sliding glass doors in the living room lure you to explore the outdoor living room.
The open kitchen is classic and contemporary. Taken down to the studs, the kitchen was completely re-built. The kitchen palate includes Oak Craft shaker-style beech wood cabinetry, slab granite counters and GE Profile stainless steel appliances. There is a large kitchen island and breakfast nook, perfect for casual dining.
The family room features a gas fireplace with river rock façade and hand-hewn old Iowa board mantel with natural edge. Plantation shutters and modern drapes contrast nicely with the rich gray wall paint, which was hand-painted with a brush, for a lasting finish.
A formal dining room is located off the kitchen and has been opened up to the family room. The home’s remodeled interior is barely recognizable from its original 1993 interior. Even archways and niches have been squared off to modernize the space.
The generous master suite has its own patio and overlooks the lake, with sail shades and twinkle lights, for mood lighting. Cherry hardwood flooring underfoot continues seamlessly from the living space. The space has 2 windows and sliding glass doors overlooking the lake. Vaulted ceiling, brush-painted walls and modern ceiling fan. The master bathroom was taken down to studs and re-built. Unique features include a free-standing soaking tub, marble-lined shower with waterfall glass enclosure, marble flooring and dual vanity areas with Decolav undermount sinks. A large walk-in closet offers ample space and cherry hardwood flooring.
The additional bedrooms are split from the master. The 1st bedroom features cheery hardwood flooring, the 2nd bedroom features wood-laminate flooring and the 3rd bedroom features carpet. All bedrooms have 2” wood blinds, modern drapes and ceiling fans. The full hall bathroom is refreshed with new Oak Craft shaker-style beech wood vanity, granite countertops, Decolav undermount sinks and new fixtures. The powder room features a new Kohler pedestal sink, toilet and fixtures.
This home was made for indoor/outdoor living, with panoramic 180 degree lake views. The rear outdoor spaces virtually expand the living space. Enjoy gorgeous patios off the family room, living room and master bedroom. The patio spaces feature modern, designer striped ceramic tile with penny-round tile border. What better place to take in sunsets than the lake dock and resort-style yard. Waterfront activities include paddle boarding, kayaking and boating (anything wakeless with an electric motor is approved for lake use). Meticulous landscaping including lush winter lawn, seasonal flowers and strategically placed trees. The home provides a superior outdoor experience; an opportunity to enjoy the AZ climate year-round.
The inside laundry room has a sink, refreshed cabinetry and granite counters. The hall storage cabinetry matches the kitchen and has a granite countertop.
