THIS IS IT! Prepare to fall in love with this stunning Spanish villa and its wall-to-wall privacy. Built by Douglas P. Patterson, this rare single-family detached home is nestled on a corner lot in coveted Santo Tomas (no HOA!). This special home showcases unique architecture, inimitable indoor/outdoor connection, modernized amenities and exceptional attention to detail. Upon your arrival, you’ll notice the crisp new exterior paint, cultivated desert-adapted yet tropical, landscaping, Spanish accents and the artisan-crafted wrought iron locking gates.
There is so much to enjoy with the thoughtfully-designed outdoor spaces, including a front courtyard, sunny central atrium and a rear yard. The property is fully fenced for privacy and security. The sparkling 2016 Tribal Waters pool is the focal point of this tropical oasis. You’ll want to grab a cold drink, turn on your favorite tunes and relax under the umbrella on the Baja shelf, while the palm trees sway in the wind. Entertain poolside year-round, under the spacious covered patio, which functions as an outdoor living room with newly-installed wood ceiling, original built-in BBQ, Spanish-inspired ceramic tile floors and new ceiling fan. Full lite French doors open fully to provide a 6’ opening with a new retractable screen system, allowing for a wonderful indoor/outdoor connection. The tropical oasis is complete with mature Mediterranean, queen and Mexican fan palm tree varieties, fruit-bearing orange tree and outdoor cold water-plumbed shower.
Preserved double carved doors lead you to the impressive interiors. The owners have an extensive list of improvements, including a new roof and new AC unit, both systems redone last year and under warranty. The kitchen and bathrooms are renovated and there is all new ceramic tile flooring throughout the home. Exceptional craftsmanship is seen in every little detail of this home. The open floorplan features a large living room with wood-burning fireplace, formal dining space, 3 true bedrooms and a central atrium.
The central atrium was lovingly-restored from a formerly dark enclosed space to a light-filled, zen space with a Mediterranean palm tree, synthetic lawn and 3 new dual pane sliding glass doors that open to the living room, dining room and 2nd bedroom.
The kitchen is remodeled and features white shaker-style cabinetry complete with custom pull-outs, lazy susan, updated hardware, stainless steel appliances, solid surface Corian counters with integrated double basin sink and glass mosaic tile backsplash.
The spacious primary suite offers a generous walk-in closet and remodeled, private bath with new mosaic tiled shower with frameless glass enclosure, new tile floors and vanity with white shaker-style cabinetry, mosaic tile counter and porcelain sink. The hall bathroom is also updated and features dual porcelain sinks, shaker-style classic white cabinetry, new mosaic-tiled tub/shower and new fixtures.
In 2022, the sellers hired a licensed contractor to build a permitted, flex room/ 3rd bedroom with vaulted ceilings and wood-beamed ceilings that opens to the rear yard. The 3rd bedroom can function as a home office, den or guest room.
Bring the toys because in addition to the 2 car garage, there is a new custom Alumawood latticed 2 car carport (21’ x 19’), a small paver parking pad in the rear yard and ample street parking. Storage sheds on the West side yard convey, offering plenty of room for storage.
The cultivated seclusion will make you feel like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle, while the colorful Spanish accents and warm, bright hues give this property a tropical resort vibe, both inside and out. Also-no overhead power lines blocking your views of nightly sunsets. This is a very bikeable/walkable neighborhood. You’ll love that this home is just a few steps to the Shalimar Country Club, which is the neighborhood golf course, bar and restaurant with 9 holes of golf and 18 holes of foot golf. Located conveniently less than a mile to many wonderful neighborhood staples including: Starbucks, Gold Bar Espresso, Sprouts, Connelly Field, Selleh Park, Daumler Park and Meyer Park. The neighborhood schools are also nearby: Curry Elementary, Connolly Middle School and McClintock High. Enjoy Close proximity to ASU, Tempe Marketplace and easy access to the 60, 101, 10 and 202. It is rare to find a home that is so well-cared for that also maintains the original charm that makes these walled villas so special. Don’t miss your opportunity to own this treasured home!
