The rural part of Maricopa County, Arizona is a venue of estate homes on acreage built by those wishing to live outside the hustle and bustle of city life in Phoenix, but with the proximity to enjoy the city’s amenities and businesses. In the bedroom community of Cave Creek, homes are built in the hillsides or on their crests with views over the mountains and the natural desert landscape of cacti, stone formations, and the changing light throughout the day.

It’s a rugged landscape and the perfect foil for crisp modern homes with clean lines, white interiors, and walls of glass. Arizona architect Michael Johnson designed his home in this manner as well as others who appreciated his approach. One of his most remarkable homes is now for sale.

Built in 2007, the 3,072-square-foot Ellsworth Residence is sited on almost five acres and spans a large dry creek bed originating in the mountains above. The three-bedroom, four-bath home has an open plan with bedrooms on either side of the living area.

Shaped like a long rectangle, glass walls dominate the white structure, offering valley, sky, and mountain views from all rooms. Remote-controlled sunshades can be used to shade the north and south light. Minimalist in design and decor, nothing detracts from the stunning beauty of the land. Priced at $1.15 million.
