Truly a one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece! Built into the side of a mountain facing South Mountain in Phoenix's Ahwatukee Foothills. The front exterior shows the curves to come throughout and pays homage to Montezuma's Castle. A harmonious mix of building materials including Lyptus-framed doors, windows and wood flooring, tubular steel-framed glass walls and burnished concrete ceilings. Cushiony carpet and softly upholstered seating pieces contrast and counterbalance the crisp architecture. When dining or relaxing on the third-level deck, family and guests alike are concealed from neighbors by a curved wall. The decking planks repeat the curve, as does the home's exposed steel fascia. The kitchen boasts stainless steel counter tops to accent the stainless-steel appliances. The third level is built for entertainment! The family can gather here to play pool, dine together, watch tv, swim, and soak in the amazing views of the Eastern and Southern city lights from the third-floor deck or the observation deck. With a craft area and a detached office outside overlooking the pool, it really is the perfect vantage point for appreciating its glimmering iceberg-colored powder glass mosaic tiles. The home is centered around a "prayer room" which is described as possibly the coolest room you will ever be in, is a 24-ft-tall conical tower lit through a skylight! The Master suite on the second level features Lyptus millwork on the bed frame and headboard, as well as the burnished concrete ceiling that tops each room throughout the home. The second level also includes two additional bedrooms with built-in Lyptus wood furniture, laundry, bathroom and a "music" room. There is a deck adjacent to the Master suite and two bedrooms which was built with stone block rotated on a curve for privacy. The floor-to-ceiling windows are high efficiency low-E glass over a custom steel base to create a seamless look. An outdoor spa and cactus garden on the second level features a custom steel water fountain with rain chain and an array of cacti and succulents, planted in Mexican pebble stone. The lower level has a half bathroom, a work room (that can be converted into a full suite and plans are available) with separate exterior entrance, an incredible five-car garage with a showroom finish, a Home Entertainment Theater room and a separate space for a home gym. And, in case you need that extra "lift" to get the groceries inside, there is an elevator that runs from bottom to top! Designed by well-known Valley Architect Eddie M. Jones and featured in multiple magazine articles including Phoenix Home and Garden and Concrete Masonry Designs.
