It's the one year anniversary of my weekly blog series "The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week"! Closings for million dollar luxury home listings in Arizona last week were sparse but if you're a fan of architects and designers that use natural surroundings to seamlessly blend in their properties to the native environment then you'll be a fan of this peaceful desert dwelling. Using native Saguaro, Palo Verde, Agave, and a vast array of stone and other indigenous features known throughout the area, this luxury home was brilliantly situated among the local terrain. The exterior is a pueblo style home popular here in the Southwest that has a smooth stucco finish, flat roof system, solid wood porch columns, and wrought iron accents to complete the look. The backyard waterfall and infinity edge pool will give the new homeowner plenty of serene moments of reflection as they look out at the spectacular mountain views from their secluded oasis.
The Southwestern theme is carried directly in to and through the interior of this lavish home. Natural stone and wide-plank wood flooring add to the rustic feel while the massive floor to ceiling windows allow the outdoors to be enjoyed from the comfort of the living room. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms are simple and functional yet still provide a richness that compliments the entire property. Of course, who could go without a private elevator to escort you to and from the garage to the main house? A person could easily get caught up in all of the surrounding desert beauty and be fooled in to thinking they were miles away from civilization when in fact this property overlooks the eighth fairway of Desert Mountain Chiricahua Golf Course.
