Rarely does an opportunity to own an architecturally significant home arise. Designed by ‘Master of the Southwest’ architect, Kilbane Architecture, Sun-to-Sun is offered with custom-designed furnishings complementing the home’s organic pueblo style. Located in the gated and guarded North Scottsdale community of Mirabel Club, this home excels on many levels. Known for its warmth and hospitality amidst 700 acres of lush Sonoran desert, the Mirabel community surrounds the acclaimed Fazio designed Mirabel Golf Club. Kilbane Architecture was charged with designing a home along the 7th hole that respects territorial heritage, with a nod to contemporary design, and the need to protect the down valley views. Custom designed furnishings and fixtures also designed by the firm complement the home style and will convey.
The owners carefully selected two of Mirabel Club’s finest lots, at an elevated location and combined them into one large corner lot. More than half of the building envelope remains available for building expansion if seeking to develop the property further. Primarily Arizona-sourced materials were utilized including Arizona river rock on both the interior and exterior. There are six kiva fireplaces, including one in each bedroom, as well as an oversized fire pit to provide ambiance and warmth.
The kitchen features Miele appliances and two sinks that allows cooks to divide and conquer, and bartenders to serve and please. The countertops are a combination of beautiful walnut butcher block and fossil granite sourced from Belgium.
The Master Bedroom beckons with a broad window expanse and private patio that welcomes colorful Arizona sunrises and soothes with expansive valley and city light views. Another of the unique kiva fireplaces ensures cozy evenings during cool winter nights. Floors in the bedroom and large walk-in closet are reclaimed Kansas barn wood.
Visitors will relish the two guest suites. Each features a large walk-in closet, fireplace, TV, doors exiting to private patio, and en-suite bathroom with custom stone and tile floors, and finishes that will remind you of the finest resort.
This home was crafted by artisans using unique materials and techniques rarely seen in home construction including spoon chisel cabinets and accents, baseboards, spa-like tile floors and showers, custom designed glass chandeliers and much more. The level of detail is impeccable. Local artist’s provided art and sculpture throughout the home, most of which will also convey with the sale.
Indoor living flows seamlessly into a sheltered and heated outdoor cantina and features a TV hidden behind copper doors, fireplace, bbq with copper hood, and multiple seating areas. The outdoor space leads to a running water feature playfully named ‘Cave Creek’, a nod to the local community. Although the current owner decided against a pool, during construction all of the plumbing was put into place for a future pool addition, and there is plenty of building envelope to create the pool of the next owner’s dreams.
All the modern conveniences and home automation are operated through a Crestron smart home technology system that controls the mechanical aspects of the home, including security, four televisions, HVAC, lighting, window shades, and music.
If you are searching for a home that offers exquisite quality, crafted in the old-world tradition and leveraging new-world technology, Sun-to-Sun welcomes you home.
