Squaw Peak Tuscan Villa ~ Phoenix, Arizona

This private luxury resort Tuscan Villa is nestled in the gated Phoenix Mountain Preserve Estates at the foothills of Piestewa (formally Squaw) Peak Mountain. Its central Phoenix location boasts a unique, tranquil escape unknown to downtown central corridor living. Builder/owner left out no detail, perfecting chemistry between home and natural desert mountain living. The drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is less than 12 minutes travel time via the scenic Piestewa (51) Freeway. Entrance through the remote-controlled gate provides guests with the first view of the magnificent home bordering the exclusive Mountain Preserve Park. Guests enter the estate on winding tumbled pavers that pour into an inviting courtyard, perfect for social gatherings warmed on cool winter evenings by a crackling, mesquite-burning kiva. Dining room and downstairs bedroom guests both have access to the courtyard through beautiful French doors crafted from Bolivian cedar. Entrance into the 4400 square foot home is through a stately, hand-crafted Cantera door, which directs guest views through the great room towards the aquatic feature carved from the mountain lot. Massive glass pocket doors open the entire great room to a covered tumbled paver patio, guarded by a dozen rough-hewn wood columns in harmony with paver and Cantera stone accents. Continuing outside, guests are presented with the centerpiece of the Villa--a magazine-featured backyard aquatic playground with a backdrop of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve Park. Exercise or play in this 2 lane, 25 yd pool, offering seating for entertaining along its entire length. Boasting the largest surface area residential pool permitted in the City of Phoenix, it features year-round use, underwater speakers, fiber optic lighting, laminars, fire features and a 10 person hot tub with adjacent gas fire pit. Sensational outdoor entertainment continues with a professional grilling/bar area, featuring seating under lighted umbrellas. A professional outdoor pizza oven offers a unique entertainment option for this outdoor wonderland with multiple serving areas for group or private parties. Beckoning guests to explore is a three-story spiral staircase directing guests from the grilling/bar area to an expansive second-story deck wrapping around nearly half of the home, featuring a gas fireplace, while revealing downtown city views. Overnight guests can access their bedrooms directly from the deck or the common area of the upstairs level. For those guests in search of the absolute viewing experience, a third level accessed from the spiral stairs ascends 31 feet above pool level for 360 degree viewing matched only by surrounding peaks within hiking distance. Enjoy amazing Arizona sunsets with drinks from the view deck while waiting for the Valley lights to reveal their splendor from Mesa to the east, through Sky Harbor International Airport and downtown Phoenix, to the western lights of Goodyear and Buckeye. Inside, extensive use of slate, stone and wood combine for an uncommon harmony. Forty-four doors hand-crafted from Bolivian cedar are used throughout the house, providing a pleasant natural aroma. For flooring, slate covers the entire ground level while the second story is exclusively Brazilian. An expansive chef's gourmet kitchen with granite counters and knotty hickory cabinets hosts professional grade stainless steel double ovens, built in refrigerator-freezer, microwave, double sink, dishwasher, expansive island with work sink, and stocked pantry. The adjacent butler’s pantry, equipped with warming drawer and a walk-in wine room, allows for your choice of elegant or casual serving. All over-sized bedrooms have access to decks or courtyards and include private baths. These baths feature vessel sinks, slate walk-in showers, equipped with overhead rain shower features and over-sized Jacuzzi or soaker tubs. Two large HD TVs provide great room and master bedroom entertainment with an additional LED flatscreen in the master bathroom. Great room surround sound, central music throughout the house, and exterior back patio speakers provide limitless entertainment options. A Bonus room upstairs is designed for theater, exercise, or extra sleeping quarters. Adjacent Phoenix Mountain Preserve offers instant hiking, jogging, and mountain biking trails. Easy five-minute freeway access enables 12 minute PHX Int’l Airport commute while connecting throughout the valley to Scottsdale fine shopping and dining, professional golf, tennis, basketball, baseball, hockey & football sports. Nearby ASU features college sports, including the Fiesta Bowl, while Tempe hosts the annual Tempe Lake Iron Man. Additionally, Phoenix hosts the NBA All Star Game, Phoenix Open Golf Tournament, the famous Barrett Jackson Auto Auction, and many other exciting Arizona events.
