Suppliments: ...peaceful mountain retreat. It's exterior space and landscape, designed by Greg Trutza of New Directions in Landscape, graced the pages of Phoenix Home & Garden's magazine in 2003. The space is truly an outdoor extension of the living room and large enough to entertain, yet intimate enough for just two. The work was so extensive, that Trutza worked with Higgins Architects and G.M. Hunt Builders, who had completed a recent home addition, to complete the project. A charming flagstone garden path, with tranquil rock waterfall and firepit, leads you to a beautiful outdoor foyer with a billowed, fabric, retractable roof. The front hillside and plant vegetation create a shady alcove that provides cool summer opti for quail and dove alike. The wall-to-wall glass entrance gives you a sneak peak of the expansive space and views that await you and when left open creates a Zen feeling while entertaining or just enjoying the quiet this location has to offer. You enter a home of beautiful, calm tones, soaring ceilings, expansive windows that allow nature and all the surrounding mountains to join you! Wide plank, French oak flooring flows thought the home to create a seamless and consistent feel. As you are drawn to the living room, with its Mexican hand-cut limestone fireplace, you pass the dining room that overlooks the living room and accented with a simple, sophisticated iron railing. Expansive windows and French doors present a stunning view of Camelback Mountain and city lights. The living room offers a wonderful gathering area and opens out to two patios, one expansive will a commanding fireplace and entertainment space and the other a quaint setting to watch the morning sunrise, coffee in hand. The kitchen highlights much of the updating from the complete interior remodel by Cullum Homes in 2016. Subzero, Wolf and Asko appliances, Quartzite counters and white, painted cabinet, subway tile, polished nickel plumbing fixtures, and kitchen island. An additional French door was added to access the large, incredible covered patio space. The 1,200 square feet of flagstone and reclaimed paver covered patio draws you out of the house almost immediately. It's vaulted, tongue and groove, beamed ceiling and terracotta pillars compliment the slump block construction and massive Cantera fireplace. An imported Italian marble water fountain, positioned on a beautiful half-circle patio overlooking the lower backyard, adds the water element and misters help extend the use of this incredible outdoor space. The upper patio wraps around to an outdoor kitchen, with built-in grill, sink, bar and counter. Access to the front garden allows for easy in and out for catering services. The patio gains privacy from bougainvillea, oleanders, massive heritage desert plants and Palo Verde, while still inviting beautiful hummingbirds! A curved, iron railed stairs take you to another tranquil space with a hand-cut stone grotto, oversized, heated, spa with firepit and turf area for lounge chairs and sun-bathing. The large patio connects along a path to the smaller patio, outside the family room that looks to the east and offers an additional 154 sq. ft. of covered patio. The eastern patio connect all the way to driveway, again, making for easy access or catering services. The family room, adjacent to the living room through French doors, to separate the rooms for media or office use, is also accessible via a windowed alcove and shares the 16-foot vaulted ceilings and wide, tall windows that the living room boasts. It feels expansive and cozy at the same time! An office desk, bookcases, wine refrigerator and a dry bar, surround the perfect TV view area and gas fireplace with custom limestone mantel. The panoramic views encompass the room and French doors irresistibly lead you outside to a quaint patio and sitting area with brick fireplace, that wraps around to the large patio to the west. The owner's suite, with corner, woodburning, beehive fireplace and updated raised limestone hearth, creates another Zen retreat in the home. Owners wake to picture frame views of Camelback Mountain through yet another French door! Beautiful white linen drapes and white wooden shutters help on days set aside for sleeping in. The remodeled marble bathroom has a double sink and wide counter with plenty of storage, make up vanity and soaking tub that overlooks the front secret garden. A large walk-in shower provides rain shower and flexible shower heads, corner seat and storage niche. To finish it off, there are two walk-in closets with custom built-ins. Two guest bedrooms, both with built-in desks and views to the front garden, offer room for visitors or use as another office. The first, especially large bedroom, has a charming window seat and bi-fold closet. It's easily pocketed off from the foyer for easy access to the hall bath with shower. The second bedroom has an ensuite bath with French door to the front garden along with built-in closets on each side of its desk. A laundry, located near the garage entrance has a work sink and storage cabinets. The two-car garage, with epoxy finish, houses the home's mechanicals and offers a wall of built-in storage cabinets. There is wonderful BONUS room on the lower level, accessible from the garage. It's 16-8 x 16 ft and has two closets, one is which is a walk-in cedar closet.
