This warm Spanish Ranch style home is nestled next to a protected forest preserve in Tonto Verde. It is designed to blend in with the spectacular mountain and nature views that surround it. With a focus on outdoor living, the rooftop patio overlooks a putting green, fire pit, water feature, and sitting areas adjacent to the natural desert. The interior blends rustic touches, such as massive exposed beams and a hand-carved mantle on a stone fireplace that has the elegance of granite and travertine. While invoking the feeling of a mountain retreat, behind the scenes structured wiring a multi-zone electronically controlled climate system and energy efficiency make this home truly state of the art. A soaring ceiling in the great room and a wall of glass looking out on the preserve, entice visitors to embrace all that the Arizona wilderness has to offer.
