Modern-Day Luxury in Peoria, Arizona

by Nate Martinez

Modern-Day Luxury in Peoria, Arizona 

Located in the much desired gated enclave of Copper Creek Estates, this gorgeous new home has everything that today’s luxury home should have. With a meticulous eye for detail, the builder has created a modern-day flair of grace and elegance in every room throughout the 5,810 square foot design nestled on an acre home site.

The floor plan includes three bedrooms on one side of the home with a large utility room that has adjacent access to the oversized four car garage and the backyard. Each bedroom has its own private en suite bath and custom built-in closets. Bathroom finishes include gorgeous Crema Vosscione limestone flooring and countertops, and knotty alder wood interior doors. In this wing of the home, there is also a large recreation room and powder room.

You will enter this home through a large unique steel and glass double front door, into a massive 24x28 great room with fireplace overlooks the gourmet kitchen with views of the manicured landscape, and seamlessly flows to the backyard living space through a beautiful panel of glass that disappears into the wall making the large covered patio and outdoors seem as one. 

In addition to a cozy eat-in nook at the kitchen, there is also a walk-in pantry with custom shelves, and a traditional large formal dining room, which opens to a lovely courtyard and outdoor fireplace. Complete with a ceiling that has been painted a unique metallic gray glaze with two large beautiful glass chandeliers. There is a Butler’s pantry adjacent with a large wine bottle glass refrigerator for endless entertainment and fine dining. There is an elegant barreled ceiling hallway that connects the master bedroom wing to the secondary bedroom wing.


Throughout the home you will find only the best amenities were selected, including the amazing exotic Provenza African Plains wood floors, which are made of sustainable wood products, hand scraped and hand distressed. At the gourmet kitchen you will find name brands such as a Wolfe appliance package that includes a sub-zero refrigerator and separate freezer, under the counter microwave, double wall ovens and a gas range cooktop with French hot plate for the chef inspired. The counters are a brown Serpeggiante marble and the kitchen island is made of quartz, all of which add to the modern-day flair.

A split master bedroom concept leads us to the other half of this beautiful home. Here you will appreciate the well-thought-out design which features a den or home office with a private patio, and access to the formal powder room, which has been included for the entertainment side of the house.

Just a short walk down the expansive hallway (for the art enthusiast), is the master retreat which has a cast concrete fireplace and a modern-day-spa vibe in the bathroom. Dual vanities with opal white marble counters, freestanding soaker tub, two water closets, and an amazing walk-in shower adorned with an opal white marble bench. The 14x14 closet includes its own washer and dryer hook ups and a gorgeous chandelier. It should be noted that the seller is providing an allowance for a custom designed master closet.

Easy passage to the outdoor living is a key element to this home, and the master bedroom is no exception. A large patio wraps around to the main patio from the master bedroom, creating the perfect compliment to the well-appointed master retreat. Situated on an acre home site, the outdoor amenities are just as grand as the interior. Perched above the main grounds overlooking the house, the 14x20 Ramada, with its own fireplace is the perfect place to entertain with views of the impressive pool and raised spa. An extensive use of Travertine throughout the outdoor living areas, plus there is a pool bath, outdoor refrigerator and a built-in BBQ.

Lush green grass surrounds the entertainment areas, at both the front and backyards. The large driveway was designed for plenty of plenty of guest parking. Exterior features of the home consist of both concrete tile and standing seamed steel roofing, real stone, and decorative wood work at the patios and overhang features for a unique and fresh look. With all these amenities, and a well-crafted floor plan, it’s easy to see why this home is modern-day luxury at its finest – right here in Peoria, Arizona.

Luxury Living in Glendale, Arizona

by Nate Martinez

Luxury Living in Glendale, Arizona 

Thunderbird Mountain located in Glendale, Arizona is home to the premier destination for luxury living on the Westside. Beyond the gated security lies the intimate community of Tuscany Hills – a local hotspot for some ofGlendale’s most elite homeowners. Perched high atop the mountain, you will find one of the finest luxury homes on the market today. With nearly 10,000 square feet in design and over an acre home site, the views of the native desert terrain and surrounding city are sublime.

Welcome to 24218 N 63rd Drive – a true “hill top” property that can brag about having 360 degree views and mean it. Located at the highest point in Tuscany Hills and backing to the mountain preserve, the 1.36 acre home site provides the privacy one might be looking for in a home of this significance.

At the entry you will find the attention to detail starts with the custom front door, adorned with impeccable craftsmanship in the iron accents. However once inside, your attention will be drawn to the impressive chandelier that graciously illuminates the foyer and the grand stature of the Italian imported pillars (rumored to be valued at $350,000). Although it may be difficult to decide which direction to start your tour, you will find it is led by marble flooring throughout the main level. Through the grand foyer are the formal living areas; to the right is the master retreat and to the left is the family room and kitchen.

The seller has spared no expense with quality and unique amenities you may not find in another luxury home, such as the lighted onyx sink in the guest powder room or the gold plated fixtures throughout. Overlooking the kitchen and a view of the grounds, the family room is accented by the soft light of the tray ceiling and the rich tones of the Alder wood wall unit that surrounds the fireplace.  The gourmet kitchen will remind you of something you saw featured on HGTV – walnut wood floors mixed with Alder wood at the island and a subtle distressed antique look to the cabinetry - not only pleasing to the eye, it is functional and practical.

Also on the main floor is the master’s quarters, which has a hidden room that could easily be a reading room or a private study. The two-way fireplace will draw you into the Mediterranean-resort-like bathroom, were we will see more of the uniquely elegant details featured in this home. The primary focal point is no doubt the huge Roman-style tub, which is like what you might find when visiting old world Rome - a huge tub with gracious archways supported by pillars and surrounded by marble. His-n-her vanities with onyx sinks and lamp-style wall sconces, accented with gold plated fixtures. At first glance, the walk-in shower will appear to be glowing, but that is just the shimmering effect of the glass tile – another uniquely elegant detail that the seller spared no expense with.

There are two ways to access the second level, one of which is the convenient elevator that also accesses the garage. Upstairs is were the real fun begins – literally. Here you will find a poker room which has its own private balcony – the seller calls it a poker room, but it could be used for whatever suites you. Just off the poker room is the massive game or bonus room, which has a full wet bar with an appliance package and plenty of cabinets for storing all your favorite spirits. A savory game room such as this wouldn’t be complete without a private bathroom, fireplace and of course a two-way salt water fish tank. While all those amenities are fantastic, it is here that you may have the first opportunity to appreciate the magnificent views. But wait, there is more…within the game room is a separate theater, decorated just like an original opera house with theater-style seating for seven. Elegant and classic in décor but modern with technology - this media room comes with a fiber optic star-filled night sky ceiling and Crestron Home System. 

While it’s a fact that this home makes entertaining a cinch, there is work to be done at some point in the day and you’ll appreciate having the study or office nearby. Encased with floor-to-ceiling Alder wood and built-in book shelves, the vibrant colors from the salt water fish tank compliment this warm and inviting space. Here you will also find a second hidden room that stores all the security systems in this home. 

Upstairs are the secondary bedrooms, four of them to be exactly, each with their own themed amenities and private en suite baths. If you need to fulfill a princess’s bedroom-dreams-come-true, then you will love the theme in bedroom number two. Every princess needs a little pink décor and of course a balcony! The bathroom is just as sweet with a hand-painted floral sink, large soaker tub and gold plated swan faucets – yet another one of those unique details the seller has spared no expense with.

In a home of this quality, you would expect to a guest casita but perhaps not guest quarters such as these. This guest house is nearly 1,300 square feet with two bedrooms, one bath, a living area, full kitchen and a one garage attached garage.  In addition to the guest parking, there is an oversized four car garage attached to the main house and plenty of parking on the cobblestone driveway.

The hilltop grounds are just as impressive as the interior. Nestled against the side of the mountain preserve, privacy is a key element of this backyard. Surrounded by Canterra stone, the lap pool has a negative edge spa and a rock waterfall that is built into the side of the preserve. An extensive use of Travertine stone has been used at both the covered patio and the wrap-around balcony. Some of the backyard amenities include multiple fireplaces, an outdoor shower and a built-in BBQ with Lynx brand appliances. 

While the views from the balcony are breathtaking, the real awe-inspiring 360 degree views are seen from the roof top deck. There is literally hundreds of square feet of outdoor space where the views are nearly perfect – on a clear day you can see the Arizona Cardinals’ football stadium to the west and at night the city lights sparkling like diamonds on the horizon.

The only thing left to do is imagine for a moment, the sound of cobblestone under your tires as you accelerate past the gated entry and make your way to the top of the hill. That is the welcoming sound of luxury living and it can be yours today. Contact Nate for a private tour at 602-430-5226.

"Casa del Caballero" Luxury For Sale in Peoria

by Nate Martinez

"Casa del Caballero" Luxury For Sale in Peoria


Tucked away in the rolling hills of north Peoria is a private, gated community where you will find “Casa del Caballero” - an appropriate name for a home of this stature, which in English means “The House of the Knight.”

Infused with a dynamic twist of old-world Spain and rustic Santa Fe, this unique design boasts over 7,600 square feet in the main house. With $4.9 million spent in construction, you won’t find anything like this for sale in the luxury market, especially if you are a modern-day knight who needs his trusty steed nearby. The 3.5 acre grounds include an equestrian facility with a stable large enough to accommodate up to four horses. Each stable has its own fenced pen, as well as a barn and tack room, bathroom and an exercise arena.

Once inside the home, you could find yourself lost in the beautiful archways that gracefully outline the curve of the wood encased windows or simply lost in the sprawling floor plan that seems to never end. To one side of the home is what we could easily call the “master wing.” In addition to the master bedroom and luxurious bath, here you will also find a private office, with floor-to-ceiling Adler wood, Canterra stone fireplace and a secret safe-room that leads to one of the two master closets. 

 

The gourmet kitchen is remint of something you might find which visiting a charming B&B in the southwest. Classic wood beams accent the ceiling with multiple woods used for the cabinetry and island – and of course only top-of-the-line appliances will do, including an indoor grill, deep fryer and the AGA Cooker – a professional grade stove that is continuously burning so it is ready for use at any time. Unique to this custom home is the built-in dinner table. Nestled in a nook just off the kitchen is a huge table with extended bench seating, large enough to accommodate ten or more people.

Down the long corridor on the east side of the home are four generous bedrooms, each with walk-in closets and en suite baths plus an oversized game room with built-in seating and wet bar, large utility room and an additional office area with a cabinets and storage galore. From this wing of the house, you can also access the guest casita; nearly 800 square feet with one bedroom, kitchenette and a private two car covered parking space.

While the interior of this home is no doubt impressive, the surrounding 3.5 acre grounds are lush with mature native landscaping and amenities that every Southwestern Knight would approve of, including an incredible mountain view, which can be enjoyed while relaxing in the pool/spa or while cooking your favorite backyard fair from the outdoor kitchen. If you prefer a little more action, there is also a sports court for basketball and volleyball. Or if your type of action requires a big engine, you won’t have to worry about space because the garage is large enough for up to ten cars including a double RV garage.

 

Noble is often a word associated with a knight. Ironically, if we were to describe “Casa del Caballero” in just one word, noble would be fitting: “Casa del Caballero” a Southwestern home built for a noble knight. For a private tour of 8350 W La Caille, Peoria contact Nate Martinez at 602-430-5226.

Villa di Tutti Santi - Luxury Home For Sale

by Nate Martinez

Villa di Tutti Santi - Luxury Home For Sale

Villa di Tutti Santi lives up to its meaning, “home of all Saints,” as this Italian-inspired villa truly speaks to both the mind and spirit. It elevates your senses and takes you to a different time and place, where art and design come together to create a space of drama, light and function.

Welcome to the private community of La Strada Del Lago, located in north Peoria, where twelve highly designed and unique homes are nestled behind the security gates, including this spectacular home. True to its Italian heritage, the front courtyard of Villa de Tutti Santi is surrounded by a privacy wall and second security gate. Here, you will discover one of the finest luxury homes in the West Valley. 

The award-winning custom-designed front door sets the stage for all that is to come.  Inside, you’ll step into a large, formal foyer featuring a twenty-one foot ceiling that’s framed by custom crown molding. It also serves as the backdrop for a crystal chandelier that glimmers with the sparkling lead crystals of Preciosa crystal. Like the many chandeliers and sconces throughout the home, this special piece was designed and imported from the Czech Republic. But no doubt the focal point of this welcoming hall is the spiral staircase with the upstairs balcony. Custom designed to match the front door, this iron railing is accented by a solid brass hand rail to compliment that incredible chandelier.

To the left of the grand foyer, you will find the library. True to its heritage, this quiet space features maple wood paneling, alder wood beams and cabinetry, and a remote-controlled fireplace to create warm light by which to read. This is truly a library that can be enjoyed by any level of reading enthusiast.

To the right of the grand foyer stands the formal dining room. This luxurious dining space features uniquely designed walls to dramatic reflect the light of the crystal chandelier and sconces, while the alder paneled ceiling above creates an intimacy that is typically reserved for only the most exclusive dining experiences. But with space to comfortably seat sixteen or more people, the only limitation to the size of your dinner party is your imagination.

Like the entry ways to the library and dining room, the arches throughout the home are enriched by hand-trimmed alder wood treatments that wrap around each one. You’ll also discover subtle details true to the home’s Italian lineage, such as custom-painted ceiling domes in soft shades of gold or recessed niches perfect for displaying those special pieces of art.

Continue roaming the hallways of the spacious first level and you’ll also discover the formal living room; one of three master retreats in the main house; and, of course, a gourmet kitchen that any professional chef or amateur cook would envy. Notice the hand-carved vent hood over the eight-burner gas cooktop, the hand-carved cabinets on the nine foot long kitchen island or the hand-tooled cabinetry on the many other cabinets and drawers. All are host to a quartz countertop that beautifully blends the old world features with new amenities.

And, as you would expect in a home of this caliber, Wolf appliances and Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler are the mainstay. No Italian villa would be complete without a built-in cappuccino machine, double ovens and for those more modern needs, double microwaves. From the kitchen you can enjoy the spacious family room where indoor and outdoor space becomes one with the help of retractable pocket doors that lead you into another world

Not to be outdone by the magnitude of the interior of this home, the back yard of this palacious spread is nothing short of impressive. Hosting two lounging cabanas, a full outdoor kitchen, spacious main house patio, oversized pool and lush vegetation, this is no ordinary backyard. This is life in a resort-like setting. The total property consists of 1.57 acres and all is lushly landscaped and completely fenced for maximum privacy.

Also enjoying the views of this incredible, lush setting is a private guest cottage, featuring a separate living room, large separate bedroom and a luxurious bath with a jetted tub and separate shower. This is no ordinary guest space. This is living space.

The same can be said of the three master suites in the main house - each not only features sitting spaces, amazing views of the grounds from their private decks or patio, en-suite bathrooms with soaker tubs and separate showers. Like all the rooms throughout this special home, the fine details are seen in the crown-molding, the specially designed paint schemes to complement each room’s theme, and custom-made draperies and sheers to beautifully frame large windows. It’s these features and so many others that truly make Villa di Tutti Santi a home where mind and spirit come together.
