Property Photo


World Renowned architect, Barry Berkus, designed this one of a kind contemporary masterpiece to sit as a sculpture on the desert landscape in a way that encompasses the sight while still taking advantage of the surrounding mountain views from every room. The private setting is made up of two large estate lots combined to make the largest lot in all of Desert Highlands to capture every view possible; from city lights and sunset, to sunrises and mountains, all while keeping complete privacy from any neighbors. Built by Ram Construction, no expense was spared from the copper exterior accents to the custom curved moving wall in the dining room that changes the size and intimacy of the room for different events and desires. Expansive Floor to ceiling windows were used to capture the breathtaking mountain views and merge the indoors with the outdoors. The house's exceptional interiors are a mix of fascinating geometric forms, attention to function and detail, and wondrous imagination. Chefs and entertainers alike will be in awe of the clean lined kitchen featuring a spacious island, commercial range, separate Subzero refrigerator and freezer, baking and prep area with an additional sink & third oven, and large butler's and walk-in pantry. At every turn are elements that will delight and surprise you, and the master retreat is no different. Finished with a European flare, the master features a tall Cantera fireplace that can be enjoyed from the bedroom or sitting room, bulls eye views of Pinnacle Peak Mountain, and two completely separate and private master bathrooms complete with their own walk-in shower, jetted soaking tub, private commode and vanities. Each with their own distinct feel; hers is softly complemented with the use of Portuguese Marble, while his is finished in a masculine, high-gloss Koa wood. Guests will feel pampered in the separate guest casita with family room, kitchenette, and private guest suite. Not only does the home serve as the perfect backdrop for artwork, but so too does the 6 car garage perfect for collectors to show off their prize collectibles and fun weekend cars. The low maintenance desert exterior is accented with numerous water features and striking architectural elements as well as the sparkling elongated pool that draws your eye out to the breathtaking valley views.
