A place of tranquility and scenic beauty, this Green-Built Tom Archer Southern Mediterranean masterpiece was designed by the renowned architect Erik Peterson as a wonderful complement to its dramatic setting atop a premium acre + lot with endless views of the majestic McDowell Mountains and sparkling city lights.
Set deep within the exclusive guard-gated community of DC Ranch Country Club in North Scottsdale, this indulgent 5,490 s.f. estate delights with mature gardens, stone walls, fountains, imported planters, beamed pergolas, private courtyards, terraces, Juliet balconies and a spectacular swimming pool with a luxurious spa.
The expansive and opulent villa boasts inviting living spaces wrapped around a central Italian courtyard and is complimented by stunning architectural finishes such as beamed ceilings, copper-accented roof trim, hand plastered walls, hardwood plank and upside down Saltillo brick flooring, custom-crafted wood doors, countless Pella French doors and wood-cased windows. Further accents await you at every turn, with timeless European styled lighting, hardware and plumbing fixtures throughout.
The main residence is highlighted by three welcoming bedrooms, four and a half baths, a plush custom state-of-the-art theater, and an office/library with an expansive loft opening to a breath-taking balcony; while the casita accommodates your guests with private living quarters and a separate bedroom and bath. More gems await, including an old world stone-lined dining room with barreled ceilings opening to a secluded scenic terrace through French doors. The spacious island kitchen, a culinary dream, is enhanced by rare Scoon Extreme counter-tops, a Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf gas stove with French cook top, dual Wolf ovens, and dual Asko dishwashers. Your dinner party seems effortless thanks to a generous butler’s pantry equipped with Sub Zero dual-temp wine fridge and refrigerated drink drawers, Sub Zero freezer, Scotsman ice maker and a Dacor warming drawer.
The elegant master suite is an intimate retreat enhanced by a private veranda and is imbued with spa-like appointments including white marble tile, a luxurious steam shower, a deep claw foot soaking tub with exposed polished plumbing and custom his and her vanities. The cavernous closet exudes refinement with its fully enclosed wardrobe cabinets, built in dressers and thoughtfully positioned window seat.
Grand appointments include high-tech Vantage programmable low voltage lighting, AMX climate control, and Apex security systems. Enjoy the oversized formidable four car garage, impressive outdoor kitchen, and children’s play area. Not a single square foot of wasted space exists in this home - even the 300+ bottle wine aging cellar is tucked ingeniously under the Florence-inspired staircase, sharing its dedicated climate system with the luggage hold.
Technology cognoscenti will marvel at the distributed whole house high-definition video, rich multi-zone audio, digital telephony, wired ethernet, multi-point wifi, and user-controlled security. Award winning Savant Systems brings a level of sophistication to residential control which renders the descriptor “smart home” barely adequate. (all available via separate bill of sale)
The community of DC Ranch deserves its peerless reputation owing to its collection of world-class facilities including classically-designed 18-hole golf courses, club houses, swimming pools, fitness center, basketball, tennis, volleyball, hiking trails, restaurants, wine bars, boutique shopping, etc.
