This home, now on the market for the first time ever, is an astounding piece of livable art. The construction process spanned 12 years as the home emerged organically from the desert 18'' at a time, utilizing rammed earth, steel, glass and stone. Described as ''The Desert Courtyard House'' and ''The House of Doors'' in Phoenix Home and Gardens and LUXE magazines, this unique home proves that artistic creativity and functional living can coexist. The commanding storefront door opens to a central courtyard, sited on a peninsula between two arroyos. Sonoran plant specimens and landscape become living art. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls surround the intimate courtyard and blend the indoors and outdoors seamlessly without compromising privacy or security. After entering the home, to the right the gourmet stainless-steel kitchen with butler's pantry, snail backlit powder and dining space. An overhead aluminum origami structure hangs from the ceiling adding dimension and artistry. The great room opens through four pivoting glass walls to the outdoors that artfully frame uninterrupted panoramic views of golf course, mountains, sunsets and the Sonoran Desert. Down the suspended steel staircase is the media room, powder room, wine cellar, and audio visual room. To the left of the front door, enter the master suite through a steel telescoping door engineered to precision. The rammed earth walls with onyx insets, cut out shapes and origami metal ceiling structures emit interesting illuminations and backlighting. The master bath shower, vanities, walls and floors are made from onyx. The massive shower wall pivots, opening to an outdoor private courtyard with fire pit and sunken bench. An interior 65ft glass floor bridge spans a dip in the earth and leads you to two discerning guest ensuites with different textures and interesting details. A breakfast/wet bar, library and office enhance comfort and interest for residents and guests. Below is the fitness room, spa with built-in glass recliner, powder room, shower and laundry. From the great room patio, the comprehensive outdoor kitchen can be secured into an additional indoor caterers' kitchen. Enjoy warmth and conversation around the Arrow Rock firepit with sunken bench seating. The home, with all its artistic details, is designed for quiet Sonoran solitude for a few but will accommodate memorable desert extravaganzas with enchanting experiences for many. Memberships available through the Club. Wait lists may apply. Membership application approval is required.
