Casa Blanca North is a union of design and material, set against the backdrop of an iconic Arizona landmark, Camelback Mountain. The home is comprised of two limestone clad ''wings'' flanking a great room of panoramic glass between that perfectly frames the dramatic mountain vistas.Upon arrival, the front entry walk opens to a generous front garden under a lattice of light and shadow. Stone and sunlight extend into the home, blurring the sense of inside/outside, a common theme throughout. The great room is the heart of the home, under a floating butterfly wing roof. Its palette of natural wood millwork and acoustic slatted ceiling, paired with large format deep gray porcelain floor, brings an organic warmth. Sliding glass doors part to fully open both the east and west sides to become a breezeway, living al fresco - connecting to outdoor living and dining (3,325 SF of covered patio).
The west court is graced by a negative edge pool and spa, with sunken seating and fire, while the pool deck lives graciously with outdoor kitchen and BBQ island, all flowing out to an expansive lawn. The south wing of the residence is comprised of a guest suite, fitness/flex room and an elegantly appointed master retreat. This ultimate suite provides thoughtful amenities and details from its coffee bar and dressing rooms, to the master bathroom with private view garden and indoor/outdoor shower. The wide mountain views of the bedroom are comprised over a low linear fireplace, offering a 'reverse sunrise' glow and amazing sunsets. On the north wing, the office offers full height glass views reaching toward Camelback. Children's bedroom suites are marked by chevron bay windows to capture views, and the rec room and patio punctuate the western end with light and entertainment. The Casa Blanca North residence is anchored in a landscape that is rooted in its desert context yet moves to lush textures and blooms.
