Description

Nestled in the Golden Zone of Paradise Valley, Arizona, sits a timeless masterpiece created by famed architectural designer and artist Bill Tull. Situated on 1.6 acres with sweeping views of Camelback Mountain and the Praying Monk this estate reflects Tull's knack for bringing harmony to his projects through a balanced blend of softness and naturalness while remaining connected to the earth. He was honored with the Phoenix Home and Garden's ''Masters of the Southwest'' award in 1990 as a testimonial to the character of his designs and ability to create art through architecture. The home has been lovingly maintained by the current owners since 1990 while it has served as their winter residence and gathering place for many family holidays and celebrations.

After 29 years with the same owners, the estate is ready to be "re-visioned". According to managing partner of Wiseman & Gale Interiors, Scott Burdick commented in an article by Dave Brown that, "Bill was an incredible and unique talent. His homes are romantic, without being kitsch or predictable Southwest. An artist architect. The architecture is so strong and so timeless. The new owners are lovingly restoring them instead of changing them architecturally."

Known for designing homes with many handcrafted elements while incorporating a blend of Territorial, Moorish and Pueblo details, Dave Brown also quoted Tull's wife JoAnn as saying, "Bill brought art to architecture and architecture to art. He was an artist/designer who left his mark in both fields. His adobe homes for example featured windows that framed trees to become 'art'. I think, as do others, the sculptural design of Bill's buildings is artwork in itself." This timeless home is no exception.

Pass through the metal and wooden clad gates at the private entrance to this extraordinary estate where you will be embraced by the romance and charm that Bill Tull was so well known for. Adorned in brick and stucco, experience the rustic beauty that truly embraces the Arizona Sonoran Desert Lifestyle. The solid wood front entry door welcomes you into the foyer, punctuated with unique lighting, a blend of flagstone and wood flooring, thick walls and ceilings finished with viga beams and latillas. To the right of the front entry step through the arched solid wooden double doors into the cozy living room with wet bar, a signature beehive wood burning fireplace (1 of 10 in the home), art niches and book shelves. Thoughtfully placed picture windows draw elements of the outdoors inside highlighting the warmth that is created in this tranquil setting.

The secluded Master Suite flows from the Living Room and creates a quiet sanctuary for recharging and relaxation. A separate exit to the back patio invites you to bask in the shade created by the canopy of mature trees. The master bath reflects the creativity and whimsy that Bill Tull is often noted for. The spacious design includes double sinks with flagstone counters, a dressing room with 2 separate closets plus a walk-in. You will be enchanted by the elevated tile jetted soaking tub intentionally situated by a window that allows the bougainvillea flowers to dance in the breeze and a walk-in shower that are separated by a petite wood burning fireplace.

To the left of the entry foyer, begins the heart of the home beginning with a comfortable sitting room. It is the perfect place to curl up with a great novel and a cup of tea. A built-in cabinet with pounded copper details lends a unique feel to the ambiance created there along with the fireplace. Step right into the formal dining room with hardwood floors and wood burning fireplace. Adjacent to the dining room is the first guest wing with 2 bedrooms and a shared bath that is designed with double sinks, a jetted soaking tub and free standing shower.

The efficient design of the kitchen connects the dining room and the family/morning room spaces. Equipped with a Viking 6 burner gas range a griddle and double ovens, this is the starting point for creating meals and memories. Pass into the family/morning room where the space is kissed by natural light, high viga and latilla ceilings and windows that draw your attention to the beauty and views of the lush back yard. A grand fireplace punctuates the family room while a smaller fireplace embraces the eating area of the morning room.

The south wing of the home boasts 2 additional guest suites each with private exits and fireplaces, a 650+bottle wine room and laundry room. A detached guest casita rounds out this 6 bedroom, 5 full & 2 half baths retreat.

The back yard does not disappoint with lush mature landscaping, pool, outdoor cabana (with a 1/2 bath), dog run, citrus trees and breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain and the Praying Monk. The adjoining 2.5 acre vacant lot is also for sale (see MLS #5956528) separately which provides the opportunity for a discerning buyer to maintain the current level of privacy and views if desired.
