A desert oasis in Scottsdale
This private residence is situated on prime five-acre property in one of Scottsdale's premier desert estate communities. Surrounded by mountains to the north, east and west, and vast views of central Scottsdale and Phoenix to the south, the original home was one of the earliest built in this heavily architecturally-controlled community.

The home’s architectural styling was 'Tuscan' in character, although the interior finishes had been updated just prior to the client's acquiring the property.
