Eye-Popping Contemporary In Arizona’s Paradise Valley Asks $7 Million

From the front, the playful mix of desert-meets-the-tropics landscaping at this contemporary in Paradise Valley, Arizona, drops a hint: This place is going to be something special.

A stone walkway leads through a rock garden dotted with cacti, palms and succulents to the gate of a walled-off courtyard. One side of the courtyard contains a broad fireplace. There’s ample space for seating and an outdoor living area.

Horizontal bands of glass add visual interest to the massive front door, which is sheltered by a portico supported by stacked stone columns.

Designed for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining, the home’s high-ceiling great room has walls of glass that recede and open to a covered patio. Not that you can take your eyes off the detailed tray-type ceilings and stone floor long enough to look through to the back of the house.

Multiple seating areas, formal and informal dining areas, a wet bar and a fireplace make up this central room. Along one side of the formal dining area is a glass-enclosed wine display and tasting room.

Off the great room is the completely renovated ultra-modern kitchen with two islands – one for eating and one for prep. Turquoise-colored accents pop against the shiny gray and black surfaces.
