Nestled among an enclave of custom homes in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve is this True Work of Art. ''Bringing the Outdoors In'' ... was the concept behind the reknown Arizona architect and Son in Law to Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Schiffner's design. Known for his great works ''The House of the Future''- Motorola concept home in Ahwatukee and ''The Floating House'' , last sold for $4.34M in Paradise Valley....Mr. Schiffner took this original home built in 1974 and ''Threw a Curve at it''...The new design was completed in 1985. Schiffner carefully placed each window to capture the beauty of the mountain vistas and valley views. He used glass block to obscure any neighboring homes so that the occupant could take in unobstructed beauty from every room in the home. The ceilings display his tear drop design soffits and gently curve into one another capturing the light and elongating the lines while the floors below mirror the movement of the ceilings above. From the entry door you will step down into the formal living room which connects to a separate private terrace perfect for watching the gorgeous Arizona sunsets. Custom automatic shades retract with the touch of a button to block out any heat . The floor to ceiling tiled fireplace is stunning . Sit and relax near the fire with a good book and take in the views of the resort style backyard and pool. Just around the backside of the fireplace is a small library, perfect for use as a den. The heart of the home , the gourmet kitchen, is a true delight to behold. The famous curve concept design of the cabinetry and stone quartz counters continues and offers plentiful storage and beautiful smooth workspace to prepare every meal...this is a " one of a kind" kitchen design- futuristic beyond its 80's era. The formal dining feels like an exhibit from a museum with its rounded walls , custom contemporary lighting, and signature tear drop soffit. The gorgeous REAL Brazilian Cherry wood floors throughout are a divine treat offering warm texture and ambiance. Feeling like you need fresh air? Step into the interior atrium...believe it or not the loggia french door entrance to the Atrium was once the front of the home. Mr. Schiffner designed the home to flank around the atrium keeping in line with his "bringing the outdoors in'" design concept. Beautiful wood beams , party mood lighting , garden boxes, flagstone and even a custom sun shade! Across the atrium is the entrance to the guest casita. The guest Casita has been wired for surround sound and an automatic 3D/LCD projector screen. Perfect size for your guests to feel comfortable -Sitting room area, Murphy bed and gorgeous travertine tiled bathroom. Make way for the Masters of the home!!! The large master suite is a real treat offering mountain views from the windows , natural light from the sky light also serves as a fabulous star gazing window at night. There is also room for your favorite lounging chair! Master Bathroom Vanity is styled in the Schiffner 'curve' fashion with gorgeous wood cabinetry , his and hers sinks , sit down vanity ( a true boudoir area) and upgraded plumbing fixtures. Large private toilet room includes standard toilet and bidet and the master shower doubles as a steam shower. What is a master suite without his and hers walk in closets? You will love the closet organizer systems too! So many details in this gorgeous home..... as you wind your way back to the heart of the home, notice the hidden cabinetry aligning the walls ...these cabinets and walls are like no other- truly customized. Once you have passed the kitchen bar and atrium garden windows , you will find the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms connected by a jack and jill bathroom. The 2nd bathroom has new sink and plumbing fixtures and full tile surround tub and shower combination. Either bedroom could be used as a separate office , currently bedroom 3 is being used as a home office. Wait!? Have I mentioned the entertainers dream backyard?! 510 sq ft resort style pool, recently resurfaced. Covered patio and patio lighting with custom wood paneled trim soffit -rec
