Supplements: Expansive curved glass walls of windows frame the Catalina Mountains as the desert changes seasons and time from a clear sunny day to the glorious sunsets and evenings filled with stars seemingly close enough to touch. The structure illuminates the breathtaking views of the Pima Canyon Mountains in harmony and at peace with nature. The entry to the home is a delightful shade garden with gentle water feature, framed by red-ochre shaded polished metal facades that capture energy, movement and light as envisioned by the architect/sculptor Frank Gehry. A single glass pivot door elegantly invites visitors into the home, leading to the stunning living room with soaring ceilings and and a fabulous sweeping arc of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors leading to the extensive outdoor patios, gardens, pool, and negative edge spa under an arch leading to a vanishing point as used by I.M. Pei. The gardens and "outdoor rooms" formed by the covered patios flow into an outdoor heated and cooled catering kitchen for entertaining on a grand scale. Back inside, spaces flow into spaces with no clear delineation. Always a sense of movement in the space curvature with no static end point, as one moves into the kitchen area framed by a curved granite topped bar, with another island providing additional seating. The kitchen provides multiple work and storage spaces, with appliances including a pizza oven, built-in wok, Thermidor 6 Burner + griddle cooktop, Gagganau wall ovens, separate Sub-Zero Refrigerator and freezer, and stunning cabinetry by Snaidero. An adjacent butler's pantry has a glass-front beverage refrigerator, Miele laundry facilities and lighted cabinetry storage. The kitchen flows into another sitting area with a built-in desk and casual dining option, all accessing the lovely gardens and fun play structure in the outdoors. The orthogonal but "circular feeling" dining "room" is a continuation of the living area and yet still its own space. There are extensive built-ins and coffered ceilings throughout the home. Materials for the home have been sourced from around the world and are both unique and sumptuous. A broad hallway curves into bedrooms and moves gracefully to another vanishing point. The Owners' Suite is exquisite and generous, with elegant bath areas and stunningly detailed closets for two. Broad windows look over the negative edge spa and up to the mountains. Adjacent is a gym space accented by large windows and rubberized flooring. The three childrens' rooms are spacious, with one-of-a-kind baths utilizing Italian tiles, and a large playroom connecting two of these bedrooms. The sumptuous media room, on two levels, enjoys silk upholstered walls and a raw silk curtain over the screen. A salon/massage room is separated from the curving hallway by floor-to-ceilings frosted glass walls. Broad stairs lead to a lower level with another bedroom or activity area, and a long dressing area with multiple luxuriously enclosed closets and a hidden shoe vault to make a Princess proud. Even the garage is elegant, with handsome granite counters, and extensive cabinetry. As beautiful as the home is, it is also an engineering success story. The lot was raised almost 16 feet and large industrial metal pipes were placed under the home to allow seamless flow of water from surrounding areas so the natural habitat was preserved. An addition built in 2010 utilized a foundation of a curved post-tension concrete structure that allows for elasticity and less delamination of the concrete. Built with love and great attention to detail, this very custom home evidences character and attitude as well as a glorious space to live, play, entertain and work. It has been featured in multiple magazines. Please call for your private showing.
