Description

People live in Scottsdale for its scenic beauty; friendly and casual ''Western'' lifestyle; year 'round outdoor recreation; great medical care; a vibrant cultural scene; collegiate and pro sports; interesting people to meet; tons of things to do; relatively low real estate taxes; and easy access to the American Southwest. If lucky, they get to enjoy these things while living in homes that are architecturally significant, especially spacious, well-designed, gracious, elegant, and private. If really lucky, their home will be in a gated, club community where they can enjoy special amenities and activities as private club members. If this appeals to you, please read on, about a remarkable home, ''Saguaro Forest 261'', in a sensational club community in north Scottsdale known as Desert MountSaguaro Forest 261 is an architecturally significant 10,237 s.f., exceptionally private custom-designed home with, among other features described below and in supporting documents, five bedrooms and a luxurious library/office. It is on a 1.54-acre homesite next to the fifteenth fairway of Chiricahua, one of Desert Mountain's seven courses, in semi-mountainous High Sonoran Desert terrain in far north Scottsdale. It is an extraordinarily quiet and peaceful setting, far from any noisy roads. Think "resort escape", or "multiple family compound"! Taxes are low, too, at only $18,639 for 2021. The home is shaped like a horseshoe, open to the northeast, where the best views are, of nearby large granite boulders, beautiful desert vegetation, and the Continental Mountains about a mile and a half away, notably the landmark "Apache Peak". This open end is also where, at a carefully designed "arrival point", visitors get their first, real "look" at the home after experiencing an impressive "arrival sequence" (described below). The east side of the horseshoe is about half as long as the west side and has two levels. The formal entrance to the home, a classy foyer, is on the lower level, and what is essentially an in-house, two-room casita with a covered outdoor patio/view deck with fireplace, is on the upper level above the foyer, accessible from the arrival point via an outside staircase. (More on this "casita" later). The home was completed in 2013 after being bought in 2012 by an East Coast couple as an incomplete speculative home. They completed it well, using materials and finishes far superior to what would have been in the home otherwise. The large (2,800 square feet), limestone tile decked pool patio in the middle of the horseshoe is the home's centerpiece and features a completely re-built, 34' long, SICIS tile pool and spa (illuminated, with spillovers) in the shape of an arrowhead, designed by noted designer David Tisherman (whose work has been featured on the covers of Architectural Digest and the Robb Report). This area is more of a "Pool and Party Plaza" than a mere "pool patio". It is a remarkable space and serves as a dramatic internal visual focus point from the main public rooms. In addition to being the "star of the show", the Pool and Party Plaza is ultra-private. There is approximately an acre of open desert between the home and the nearest neighbor to the north, and there can be virtually no eye contact between someone at that home and someone in the Pool and Party Plaza due to the skillful placement of a tall, round, gated entry rotunda that serves as the home's "outside" front door. Split-second glimpses of golf carts can be seen on a cart path to the east of the home, but due to vegetation and the way the east side of the home was designed golfers in these carts can only see a small part of the northern part of the Plaza. And, taking that quick glance will put them at risk of driving off the path into some rough desert. In addition to the home's distinctive shape and the Pool and Party Plaza, other "architecturally significant" highlights include: a "transitional" mix of traditional building materials on the exterior of the home (natural stone, tile, and stucco) unexpectedly paired with a very light and bright, "contemporary" interior; beamed ceilings; rich-looking stone and wood interior finishes; many windows, adding to the interior's light and bright nature and making some awesome views very easy to enjoy; the home being artfully spread out over four main levels, creating wonderful interior sight lines and making for great views from the upper level windows (an elevator just inside the home on the garage level makes hauling groceries upstairs a breeze). The home's expansive interior walls, daytime interior light levels, dedicated lighted art shelving, and art lighting, makes it perfect for the display of important art. The special "arrival sequence" starts with a visitor driving down a curving, descending, 57-yard-long, paver stone covered driveway, flanked by huge granite boulders, three Giant Saguaros, to a large auto courtyard, approximately 1,930 square feet in size. To the right of this courtyard are three separate wooden garage doors, which provide access to a garage with room to park four cars due to one of the bays being roughly 40' long. The home from this vantage point is two stories tall and makes an impressive first impression. To the left of the auto courtyard is the rotunda, double-gated and remote controlled for security. It is seven steps above the auto courtyard and makes for a very dramatic entry statement, with a tile roof and double iron gates. Walking up the steps to the rotunda, a visitor will start to notice the lovely physical textures of the home, a combination of painted stucco, rich-looking stone, traditional barrel vault tile, and landscaping, lots of landscaping! When they get inside the rotunda, with its brick flooring and custom light fixture, they will start to sense that they are entering an unusually beautiful home! After passing through the rotunda, they will walk about seventy-five feet, climbing a few steps on the way, to reach the "arrival point", just a
