This desert contemporary hillside home was originally built in 1970 and underwent significant modernization and expansion from 2010-2015. The current owners have invested over $175,000 in high-end modern improvements. Homes of this price point rarely offer this caliber of architectural details, distinctive finishes and stellar views.
Located on a cul-de-sac, this home sits on an elevated hillside lot, which backs to Phoenix preserve land. The location allows for exquisite city light and mountain views. Epic sunsets await you. The curb appeal is simply outstanding. The front yard is xeriscaped with pea gravel, native desert plants + cacti and low-voltage lighting. A long driveway leads to a generous 2 car patio-port and lattice paver-lined parking spot, which can also function as a covered patio space. The entire roof was replaced in 2010 and has a contemporary pitched metal roof adjoining an architectural shingled roof. The home is brick construction with framed additions finished with smooth, scored stucco. The exterior is painted an attractive desert gray. The retro breeze-block at the front of the carport adds a unique architectural element and provides increased privacy at the entry. Once you ascend to the top of the driveway, past the carport, you’ll arrive at the front door and an open patio space, which is extremely kid-friendly, with a hardscaped play area. A glass-tile lined planter adds interest to the space.
The home welcomes you into a formal entry, which flows into the great room. The main living spaces feature wood plank laminate flooring, vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting, exposed structural beams and flush-mounted speakers. The original home has been expanded, with permits, by over 650 sq ft, which added a large den/office space (could be a 4th bedroom with the addition of a closet or wardrobe) and also increased the size of the great room and dining room. The North-facing wall off the dining room opens to home to its beautiful desert surroundings, with an anodized aluminum-framed plate glass wall, a commercial-style door and clerestory windows. The new den/office features a sliding barn door, 2 picture windows, upper clerestory window, vaulted ceiling with exposed structural beam and gray wood plank laminate flooring. The formal dining room features a unique chandelier and it overlooks the rear yard through a plate glass window wall, with commercial-style metal door and clerestory windows.
The contemporary kitchen was completely re-designed/re-built in 2010. It is truly high-design with a high-performance appliance package including Viking stainless steel refrigerator, 2 maple-paneled Viking refrigerator drawers, 2 maple-paneled Fisher and Paykel dishwasher drawers, Miele smooth glass cooktop, stainless steel Viking oven, Ariston built-in espresso machine and a striking stainless steel ventilation hood. Fine finishes include DuraSupreme maple slab cabinetry, waterfall edge Caesarstone quartz ‘reflections’ countertops (they glimmer with recycled mirror inlayed in the quartz), industrial-style metal and marble (removable) island, gray mosaic tiled backsplash, undermount sink, filtered water faucet, recessed and under-cabinet lighting and modern hardware + fixtures.
The master suite features gray wave texture carpeting, modern ceiling fan, efficient European-style wardrobe wall for clothing storage/organization and a private bath. The master bath features a generous linen porcelain tiled shower with Ann Sacks icicle glass accent tile, built-in beauty bench, Kohler fixtures (showerhead and handheld shower wand) and a frameless glass enclosure, a separate water closet with dual flush toilet and hexagonal gray floor tile.
All bedrooms feature matching gray wave texture carpeting, new dual pane windows, flush-mounted ceiling speakers and modern ceiling fans. Both the master and 2nd bedrooms are en-suite. The bathrooms all have high-quality materials including matching maple vanities, Caesarstone quartz counters, porcelain sinks, Kohler fixtures and dual flush toilets. The hall bathroom features a gorgeous iridescent Ann Sacks glass mosaic tiled tub/shower and tumbled pebble flooring. The 2nd bathroom has a linen porcelain tiled shower with Ann Sacks bubble accent tile, dog washing shower faucet and frameless shower enclosure, tumbled pebble flooring and modern globe pendant vanity light.
Additional features include recessed LED lighting in the hallway, inside laundry, Nest thermostat (the world’s first learning thermostat), dual AC units (one is only 2 years old) and an August smart door lock at the front door (lock is operated by smartphone app). The home has copper plumbing and a 200 amp electrical service.
This home is truly designed for indoor/outdoor living; the outdoor spaces are a virtual extension of the livable space. The home’s windows frame the exquisite views and the outdoor spaces were designed with privacy and entertaining in mind. The rear landscaping includes native desert trees, large grassy area, raised vegetable garden bed and cozy concrete paver patio, with a mountainscape backdrop.
With the home feeling very private and tranquil, it should be noted that the location is convenient to many destinations. Outdoor enthusiasts will love being close to numerous trails. Within 1 mile, you will find great coffee shops (Grinders and Rainbow Donuts), popular restaurants (Scramble, Via De Los Santos Mexican, Il Posto Italian, etc) and city parks (Sunnyslope Park, Mountain View Park and North Mountain Park),
This home effortlessly combines contemporary architecture with green + healthy living and modern design. Some of the city’s most unique architecture can be found by roaming the neighboring streets in the Sunnyslope area; architects and artists have been flocking here for years. Nearby Sunnyslope high is considered an ‘excelling’ school.
A contemporary, wood-clad accessory structure sits atop the driveway and features clerestory windows and French doors. It looks more like a desert cabana than a storage shed. The sellers have plans permitted with the city to add 832 square feet, which would include a garage with a 2nd story master bedroom. The plans would serve to considerably increase the livable square footage. The addition would also allow for panoramic views of the valley.
Everything, down to the tiniest details, oozes style. It is a rare opportunity that a treasured residence such as this comes to market, especially at an affordable price.
