Renowned architect Brent Kendle brings a new level of contemporary artistry to this thoughtfully redesigned Paradise Valley Estate. Capturing a timeless-understated elegance with the idea that the design was not created for the trend of the moment but rather for generations to enjoy. Simply stated, the home is tasteful without being boastful. This 12,000+square foot contemporary desert jewel resides near the base of Mummy Mountain on more than 2 acres, maximizing stunning mountain views, abundant natural light and the opportunity to showcase an extensive art collection. Each space is defined by incredible architectural installations and includes a main house with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 3 powder rooms, a 250 plus bottle wine room, theater lounge and 6 car garage. The separate guest house is connected by a breezeway with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a large exercise studio, spa quality locker room, steam room and dry sauna. Eight fireplaces highlighted with blackened steel interiors, tumbled glass, masonry spheres of varying sizes and three-dimensional limestone accentuate comfortable seating areas throughout the property.
The cantilevered front door punctuates the 2-story foyer entry framing the exquisite art walls, views of the sophisticated landscape architecture, pool and mountain views on the horizon.
The modern kitchen favors a sleek design with exquisite millwork throughout, featuring a chef’s table made of fiddle-back Anigre wood, 3-position design, commercial-grade appliances and an imported espresso station. Finishes include a unique blend of steel, book-matched East Indian Rosewood, Anigre and quartz surfaces.
The Great Room is the heart of the home, featuring a striking combination of wood, stainless steel, glass and limestone that illuminate a James Bond-style floating stair case connecting to the upstairs gaming and entertainment lounge. The touch of an iPad transforms the lounge into a state-of-the-art theater.
The interior-exterior merger of architecture is particularly apparent where a series of clearstory and retractable windows invite you to experience the serenity of indoor/outdoor Arizona living. The fireplace framed in quartz and dramatic art walls lead to the wrap-around covered patio with built-in BBQ, wet bar and cozy seating areas.
The master suite is a stunning oasis that creates a balance of relaxation, and tranquility. The master bath invites nature in with its focus on the Zen like private garden screened with satin etched glass.
Bask in unparalleled views to the east from the comfort of your upstairs entertainment lounge patio. The exterior of the home boasts a resort-style 33-foot salt water negative edge pool enveloped by 3 exterior fireplaces, intimate seating areas, light and water features. The outdoor spaces include a professional grade lighted tennis court and separate sport court.
Lutron and Crestron systems control the lighting, climate, fire features, audio, video and security systems.
This Frank Lloyd Wright inspired masterpiece will attract the most discriminating buyer who appreciates the finest materials, finishes and architecture in the quality of the soft-contemporary and modern design.
