Architecturally-significant Ralph Haver mid-century modern meets commercial grade new-century modern, in this one-of-a-kind Arcadia residence. The extensive re-build and expansion honors the MCM design with perfectly scaled addition set behind the original façade. Haver trademark features include angled roofline, vaulted and beamed ceilings and walls of glass.
Landscape architecture firm, Modland Design, cultivated an inimitable indoor/outdoor experience. The modern curb appeal is on point with sprawling high-end synthetic lawn, modern house colors, mature shade trees and Turfstone driveway that can accommodate 2 cars. You are welcomed into a front courtyard which features an elevated wooden deck, perfect for greeting guests or enjoying a morning cup of coffee. A block pony wall defines the space and displays a custom address sign. Soaring cactus adorn the entryway and an outdoor open ‘skylight’ provides gorgeous, indirect natural light. A contemporary river rock inlay runs from the front deck, all the way to the pool’s edge; a true display of the amazing indoor/outdoor connection. The home audio system is set up with speakers throughout the interior and exterior of the home, including the front courtyard.
You enter the home through the original living room, where the Haver trademarks have been preserved. The original floor-to-ceiling window wall has been upgraded with dual pane, low-E glass that surrounds the steel-clad, wood-burning fireplace. The vintage concrete floors have been diamond-grinded to expose their aggregate. Exposed block walls bring a connection between the original and the new construction; a design element in both.
The kitchen has been expanded and fully re-designed. Custom Euro-style cabinetry is paired with quartz countertops and a KitchenAid appliance package (induction cooktop, steam microwave, convection oven and dishwasher). The center island offers casual seating, while the formal dining area is located off the kitchen with custom chandelier and concrete floors. A built-in bar area has a sitting area, 2 built-in refrigerators, counter space for making cocktails and plenty of storage cabinets for anything from glassware to audio visual equipment. A laundry room/butler’s pantry is located right off the kitchen and features front load washer and dryer, built in cabinetry and ample counter space.
If you’re considering building your own home, it’s important to consider flexible spaces that can serve multiple purposes. A den/office that can also function as a guest room or home gym is a great example of this. A new home builder NSW can work with you to create a floor plan that maximizes space and allows for flexibility. With their expertise, you can design a home that not only meets your current needs but can adapt to changes in your lifestyle over time. Additionally, incorporating eco-conscious features such as plank cork flooring and sustainable building materials can help reduce your environmental impact and create a healthier living space for you and your family.
A spacious family room opens to a modern poolside ‘atrium’ surrounded by commercial storefront glass walls. The family room features an exposed block wall, modern pendant lighting, porcelain tile floors, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the rear yard and lots of room to lounge or entertain.
The floating eucalyptus staircase set against an exposed block wall leads to a generous primary suite, which soars above a canopy of trees with glass walls and view deck. The signature vaulted and beamed ceilings that Haver homes are so well-known for were replicated throughout the primary suite, seamlessly blending the original house with the addition. The private bathroom is a perfect retreat with a steam-capable shower and a jetted soaking tub, surrounded by commercial walls of glass and accented with a sputnik chandelier. A floating green quartz countertop wraps around a custom stainless steel sink, complete with 2 wall-mounted faucets. The shimmering mosaic tile wall complements the stack bond tiled floors. A spacious walk-in closet offers plenty of organized storage with customized wardrobes. The vaulted ceiling design allows for additional storage space all the way up to the top of the ceiling, which is perfect for bins of occasional/seasonal items.
There are 2 bedrooms downstairs, both with vaulted and beamed ceilings, new carpeting and upgraded windows. A spacious shared bathroom is located between the 2 bedrooms with a tiled garden tub/shower, tiled walls with mosaic accents, dual wall-mounted vessel sinks and separate vanity area.
Landscape architecture firm, Modland Design, created an epic wrap around 9’ deep diving pool with lap/swim lane, Baja shelf, mosaic tiled water line and stone water feature wall. This high-end pool would cost well over $100,000 to construct today. Whether you want to throw an amazing backyard pool party, set up a ‘dive-in theater’, relax on the spacious Baja shelf or do laps in the swim lane, this pool will be a hit. The cultivated privacy from the towering bamboo, bougainvillea and mature trees will make you feel like you are at a tropical island resort, but you will also feel right at home.
The professionally-designed yards feature high-end synthetic lawns, desert-adapted trees for privacy, multiple patios/entertaining spaces and a workshop with remote-controlled swing wall that can transform into an entertaining deck. A commercial-grade steel and wood swing beam allows you to customize your swing/hanging chair set-up. If you want the pool shaded, there are hangers for a shade sail. There are 3 covered poolside spaces. One is a modern poolside atrium surrounded by storefront glass walls. The double glass doors open completely making it perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The covered poolside cabana is wrapped in contemporary steel cladding and is perfect for poolside lounging, as it sits right off the Baja shelf pool entry. It features ingenious built-in pool float storage niches, pre-wire for outdoor speakers, outdoor shower with both hot and cold water, electric outlet for beverage fridge, curtains for cabana privacy and the perfect covered space for poolside lounging. There is also a small covered patio under the upper primary suite deck, which is perfect for setting up a bistro table poolside. A meandering side yard features unique stone paver walkway, vegetable gardening area, large lockable storage room with electricity and dining patio with direct access off the kitchen. You can access this patio from the front yard and kitchen, where you’ll find a built-in BBQ station with tiled accent wall, stainless steel counter and a perfect dining area under a shaded, café-lit canopy.
The neighborhood can’t be beat. The Windemere neighborhood is full of amazing Haver homes, with some major renovations underway. Looking for a walkable neighborhood?

Arcadia High School and Tavan are less than 1 mile away. Hopi and Ingleside are under 1.5 miles away. Bike along the crosscut canal for a scenic ride to old town Scottsdale. This home has been featured on the Modern Phoenix Home Tour, The Tiki Oasis Tour and has also been featured in Arcadia News’ Arcadia Home & Design magazine.
All of the major home systems were updated when the home was re-built and expanded. This home was taken down to the studs, making it essentially a complete re-build. Everything from the sewer to the roof, electrical service and wiring, supply and drain plumbing, on demand water heater and everything in-between has been updated. The 2 AC units were replaced in 2018 and 2021. A 5.28kw Tesla solar array has no future payments, as the duration of the 20 year lease was pre-paid at the time of installation in 2012. In addition to the solar, you’ll love the other eco-efficiencies including low-E, dual pane windows and doors, foam roof, on-demand gas water heater, synthetic lawns and desert-adapted landscaping. The finish level and functionality in this home are second to none. It is truly distinctive in every way; you won’t find another home like this.
