This luxurious private retreat is a once-in-a-lifetime find!
Unique, one-of-a-kind, immaculate… These are the only words that can describe this luxurious property located on an acre in the exclusive community of Paradise Valley, Arizona. The dramatic entertainment home features a modern, contemporary feel inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and designed by his former son-in-law, Architect Charles Schiffner.
Cascading walls of glass, exposed steel beams, and two-foot-thick concrete walls give this home its stark, modern look that all at once feels opulent and inviting. A paved driveway draws you in to the clean lines that juxtapose the natural desert landscaping on a sloping hillside. Inside, you’re greeted by approximately 10,000 square feet of open living that includes four bedrooms, 5 ½ baths, four-car garage, office, family room, wine cellar, game area, and home theatre. There’s even an elevator to transport you between floors.
As you move on to the living room, a stunning wall of glass doors that open individually onto the patio and Negative Edge pool welcome you to enjoy the unsurpassed view. The steel-beamed, vaulted ceiling overhead leads the eye to the catwalk balcony, and a Dale Chihuly-inspired, custom glass chandelier provides additional light and chrome ceiling fans circulate a gentle breeze.
Down the hall, you’ll enter the kitchen that showcases Volga Blue granite countertops and imported Italian black polyurethane self-closing cabinets by Sophia Trenz. For the chef, Wolf, Viking, and Sub-Zero appliances beckon you to create delicacies, and a built-in Miele coffee maker creates the perfect finish to any meal.
Your opportunity to own a "Slice of Paradise" is available now.
The master bedroom is a luxurious retreat featuring its own fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows with striking views of the downtown city skyline, and separate seating area. The en suite bathroom invites you with a soaking tub, bidet, television, and an oversized, spa-worthy shower with its own tankless hot water.
When guests come to visit your opulent getaway, they can enjoy their own slice of heaven in the separate one-bedroom studio. Something of a mini-version of the larger home, this self-contained oasis has a complete kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and Balia Azul granite countertops, living room, dining room, and walkout balcony with grill area and al fresco dining. Step straight from the balcony to the Negative Edge pool, from where you can enjoy the breathtaking views of Phoenix’s city skyline (made even more impressive once the sun goes down). The pool is flanked by a fire cauldron on either end with awe-inspiring, color-changing, in-pool lights and a nearby water feature. With the installed heater, you’ll find yourself in the temperate salt water year round.
