Nick Tsontakis designed this stunning contemporary home, finished in 2008, with six bedrooms and six bathrooms, walls of seamless architectural glass, and incredible panoramic views of the surrounding desert mountains and city lights. Built in a special location near hundreds of acres of the Sonoran Desert, the house soars to 32 feet tall—eight feet taller than most homes in Paradise Valley—creating tremendous ceiling heights and gallery space inside, allowing the home to feel lighter and brighter than most.

The home reflects the perfect combination of open concept living with indoor/outdoor elements and thoughtful sight lines creating a graceful ambiance capturing some of the most iconic vistas Phoenix has to offer. This makes for near complete views of the backyard and pool area from every point in the home. Serving as a perfect example of Tsontakis's award-winning design—a measure of supreme harmony and the sophistication of simplicity—this timeless contemporary delivers on style and design like no other home available. As a semi-split floor plan, there are five bedrooms, all ensuite, on the main level, and one ensuite bedroom upstairs, along with a gym and a screening room. 

Outfitted by the current owner with the best technology, the home is completely turnkey and is certified as a SMART® home, many of its features being operated by the owner's phone from anywhere in the world. Entertainment features like surround sound throughout, remote-operated window coverings, smart plugs and smart thermostats make setting the scene a matter of pressing a button, no matter the occasion.

Incredible levels of detail in each finish selection, including Fantini fixtures, multiple Swarovski crystal chandeliers, fine French fabrics, and imported wall coverings perpetuate the home's consistent sense of style and quality.

Within yards of the nearest hiking trail, the neighborhood of Sunset Hills is considered by many one of the best areas of Paradise Valley, boasting convenient access to arterial roads and highways, local attractions, grocery stores and high-end retail and quick access to either Scottsdale Airport or Sky Harbor International. Many, but not all homes in the neighborhood, enjoy exceptional, far-reaching views to Pinnacle Peak, the McDowell Mountains and even the iconic Four Peaks range. The neighborhood is located in the northwest corner of Paradise Valley along Tatum Boulevard, boarding the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, and is not normally traveled by anyone other than residents. It enjoys some of the most idyllic and private settings Paradise Valley is known for, and yet is surrounded by the convenience of the city and everything it has to offer.
