O’Brien Residence

The O’Brien home, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, embodies a luxurious residence as well as a great entertainment space. With 5,900 square feet of livable space, it boasts views of sunsets over Pinnacle Peak, a cactus forest, and soaring boulder outcroppings out the back. Along with the main residence, there is also a guest casita that can be used as a home office or for guests.

The master suite is a retreat unto itself. It offers dramatic views, a four-sided fireplace, and an exercise room. The master bath has a spa tub, walk-in sauna, shower for two, separate vanities, and a large wardrobe that contains hook-ups for a stackable washer/dryer. Other bedrooms are spacious and all have a private bathroom.

For indoor entertaining, the professional kitchen has granite slab countertops, a dishwasher drawer, and appliances by Asko, Sub-Zero, Fisher-Paykel, and Dacor. There is a warming drawer in the dining room, and adjacent is the wine cellar, which can hold over 500 bottles in a climate-controlled setting. The outdoor entertaining includes a three-sided infinity spa that spills into a big basin, with a ‘fire ring’ floating over the water – leading to the pool area. The heated pool and spa also contain fountains and waterfalls as well as an in-floor cleaning system to keep work to a minimum.

The luxury home boasts a number of other unique features throughout. To fit in with the boulders that can be seen around the property, there is an indoor boulder water fountain in the foyer. The powder room features a countertop and bowl that appear to be floating above the floor. There is upgraded carpet and natural slate flooring throughout the space, sound insulation in all rooms, dual pane windows for cooling and heating efficiency, and a number of high-quality brand name appliances.
