A work of Art - first time on the market and situated on one of the most commanding homesites in Cameldale, this Grand Estate graces 4.27 acres with stunning views at the base of Camelback Mountain. Created by the vision of its' owner and the professional talent of the Superfecta: Candelaria Design, Inc. (Architect), Desert Star Construction (Builder), Vallone Design, Inc. (Interiors), and Berghoff Design Group (Landscape), every detail exudes an ambience that is grand, yet warm and comfortable for an unequaled Lifestyle. Through the gated entry to the charming arrival, the warmth of a French countryside setting draws you in to handsome stone dwellings with compliments of wood and iron that are the main house, additional garages, a two bedroom, two bath, complete Guest House, .... and a one bath Casita. Upon entering the residence, the elegant living room welcomes guests with an impressive, antique limestone fireplace and a high ceiling shaped by squares of wood beams - each square panel an oil painting on canvas. Doors of glass by Hope Ironworks disappear into the walls and entice one to flow out to the comfortable patio with fireplace and views of blue sky and mountains over a grand lawn for entertaining or personal enjoyment. Soft colors and a neutral palette blend the distinctive character elements of the home. The richly paneled library is welcoming while dual offices beyond look out on manicured patios. The Master Suite, anchored by limestone fireplace and sitting area is brilliant with French doors opening out to patios and views. Two master baths and two very generous master closets are dream spaces to pamper and prepare for the day or evening. Finishes throughout of oak wood flooring from France, marble and antique concrete tiles create smooth transitions with a decorative element to the serene formal dining room, quaint wine room, butler bar and butler pantries with millwork by Phil Ramsey. A pewter center island sits efficiently in the kitchen surrounded by cabinetry by Julienne, twin sub-zero refrigerators enclosed in a custom built piece of furniture, also by Phil Ramsey, and the striking Lacanche gas and electric range. Casual dining and an intimate family/TV room with fireplace flow out to a fabulous BBQ and outdoor dining area with views of the great lawn and mountains. The second level of the main residence, accessed by staircase or elevator, is comprised of three beautifully decorated, comfortable bedrooms en-suite, all of which are part of a great family room/media and game center with efficiency kitchen. Motorized glass doors open up to the loggia with fireplace and breath-taking views of Arizona's mountain ranges and city lights. Additional features that make life easy, provide security and maintain the highest standards includes the newly updated Crestron control system with 15" touch screen and home smart operating system for 17 camera security views, custom shades and lighting, water bugs and pool, and music to enjoy throughout the whole house. This home has the highest Leeds energy rating, commercial central heating and AC system, auto fertilization system and a solar electric farm with solar H2O heaters. Nine fireplaces, a firepit and gas heaters warm the home and patios and create the coziest atmosphere and relaxed ambience for everyone's enjoyment. Vignettes with stand-alone character, a part of the larger narrative, surround the home and invite the eye to take in Nature's beauty everywhere. Reminiscent of the great French Impressionists, this Grand Estate tells a story as a special place for entertaining and living well - a Masterpiece!
