At the very first glance, you will know that this is truly an unforgettable home and understand why it was voted-- by a landslide-- as the best home on tour by Realtors on the Pinnacle Peak area Realtor Home Tour.The home is best described as ''Farmhouse meets chic.'' With breathtaking 360-degree mountain views surrounding this exceptional home, it epitomizes casual luxury that is timeless, warm, comfortable and inviting. Located in the gated community of Rio Mountain Estates in North Scottsdale, careful consideration was given to every element--every detail-- in the building of this home. From the fine quality of the construction itself and the well thought out open floor plan, to the blending of classic, timeless details with the most current upscale finishes, technology and appliances, nothing was overlooked. Expectations are easily met with the many details seen throughout the home. Included are the large- scale windows and multi sliding glass doors throughout the home that allow an abundance of bright, natural light to filter in. With the open floorplan, the gourmet kitchen flows smoothly to the great room. Highlighted are the double islands, finely finished custom knotty alder wood cabinetry, a large walk-in pantry and a casual dining area with hand-hewn solid wood beams in the ceiling and situated perfectly to capture views of the mountains. A massive 16-foot natural stone fireplace in the great room, Siberian Oak distressed hardwood floors bordered by honed travertine tiles and hand-hewn solid wood scissor timber trusses add to the rich but casual feel of this living space. The formal dining room, with French doors opening to a front courtyard and a half barrel brick stone veneer ceiling, again emphasize some of the classic details found throughout the home. The elegant master suite is also character-rich, with the same high-end finishes and details seen throughout the home. Along with the hand-hewn wood beams, Siberian Oak distressed wood floors with travertine tiled border, a massive stone-covered fireplace sets the mood. The very stylish bathroom, showcased by the delicate mosaic tile imported from Peru for the bathroom floor, a cast iron claw and ball foot, freestanding soaking bathtub, the gemstone and crystal jeweled vanity wall sconces and "His" and "Her" closets all can be summed up in one word to describe the feel of the master bath retreatâ”"chic." Embrace every moment shared with family and friends with the wonderful outdoor areas that flow seamlessly from inside the home. Large oversized wood-clad French panel sliding doors in the great room open wide to an expansive backyard covered patio with its vaulted ceiling covered in tongue and groove wood planks and wood beams. Built in surround sound speakers, a natural stone gas-burning fireplace, mounted TV and a custom-built island with stone columns and granite stone counter tops, a built-in gas grill and stainless-steel cabinets, all aid in creating the perfect entertaining environment. Enjoy the pool with a Bahia deck for a cool and refreshing lounging area or the star lighted nighttime sky while relaxing in the luxurious spa, highlighted with its backdrop of a dramatic fire feature. Enjoy easy and quick access to all the lifestyle amenities for which Scottsdale is known, then retreat at the end of the day to this unique home and enjoy the hushed desert sounds and serenity created by views of the high Sonoran Desert and all its natural beauty, and the magnificent McDowell and Mazatzal Mountains seen beyond.
