Situated in a serene setting on a cul-de-sac at the top of Pottery Canyon, this curvilinear contemporary residence rests upon almost a half-acre parcel, among mature landscaping.


Impeccably designed by renowned architect, Don Edson, and custom built for this original owner utilizing quality craftsmanship and an exquisite attention to detail, the home offers over 7,200 square feet of living space, an expansive backyard with a heated pool and spa, a large manicured lawn, a fire pit, and a built-in barbecue.


Aesthetically pleasing in every regard, this Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired contemporary residence showcases spectacular curvilinear architecture, numerous skylights, and an extensive use of wood, copper and stone throughout.


The artfully designed interior consists of five exceptional en suite bedrooms, six full bathrooms plus a powder room, two family rooms, his-and-hers offices, and an exercise area.


Generous, light-infused living spaces flow seamlessly together with mahogany wood flooring, an impressive stone fireplace, and vast windows overlooking the backyard with its lush greenery.


Open to the family room, the stunning cook’s kitchen features Viking Professional stainless steel appliances, including a wok, a pantry, a spacious island with breakfast bar seating, in addition to a breakfast area.


Privately situated away from the two secondary bedrooms on the main floor, the master suite is a sanctuary where you can happily retire at the end of a long day. The luxurious master bath provides his-and-hers walk-in closets, a spa tub, a separate shower, and a bidet.
