A few years ago I had the good fortune of spending time in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I spent hours walking the neighborhoods admiring the Southwest style architecture which is not available in my neck of the woods.
I liked how many of the homes were one story (I like ranchers). I also liked the adobe style with plenty of wood and tile. One other feature I love are courtyards that are common with this style of architecture.
This Scottsdale, Arizona home is a beauty in every sense of the word. It’s a brand new home listed on ZillowTM.
With 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms in 4,700 square feet, it’s a great size for a family, yet not so large as to be a never-ending task to take care of. It’s a typical Southwest architecture with tile shingles, adobe-like exterior, single story and a courtyard-like backyard (that’s a beautiful oasis with small pool, patios, small grassy area and covered patio).
The outdoor space, while not large, is set up for year-around outdoor living. However, just as much, if not more, effort went into the interior design. While there aren’t a lot of images below to showcase this home, the ones in this gallery clearly depict the quality of design throughout. In fact, it’s been some time since I’ve loved every main room with equal vigor for any particular home.
Enjoy this home.
Backyard oasis with small swimming pool surrounded by gardens adjacent to a small grassy area and outdoor patio. A covered patio leads to the backyard via open arched doorways.
Notice how the patio furniture fits in perfectly with this home’s design. It shows that the designer clearly knows what they are doing. Finally, this backyard offers plenty of privacy with surrounding fence.
A large portion of this home’s outdoor space is this covered patio which is a nice feature in a place as hot as Scottsdale, Arizona. Moreover, the large arched openings offer a good view of the backyard space.
This living room is set within a large open concept living space that also includes the dining area and kitchen. The living room area is fairly large accommodating two sofas and two armchairs and one bench (benches are great in front of fireplaces because you feel the warmth). There is a lot going on furniture and decor wise in this living room; however, it manages to avoid a cluttered look.
It was this kitchen that captured my attention to this home. It’s an L-shaped kitchen and not overly large; however, the kitchen space is immaculately designed using two tones of wood. The island offers a breakfast bar for 3 people. Notice how the stove/oven matches the dark tone of the island? That’s a very nice touch. The brick-style backsplash enhances the kitchen’s design as well.
With a slight exposed wood-beamed cathedral ceiling, this large master bedroom suite is a true retreat from the rest of the home. The room includes access to a private balcony, plenty of space for a king-sized bed and my favorite – plenty of sitting furniture without cluttering up the room.
Elegance describes this master bathroom. It’s spacious and luxurious. With individual vanities on opposing sides of the room, it affords plenty of space for two people. Placing the soaker tub in the center is a design concept I’ve been seeing more and more lately. The cabinetry offers plenty of storage. If you look closely, you’ll notice that there are mirrors throughout this bathroom, which is perfect for any bathroom.
