    Interesting home. Outside it kinda reminds me of Disney World…either way I like the lighting and the setup of it.

    And then we step inside to a terrible living room. Compact and very closed off. What’s the point of making it two stories if you’re going to close off three out of four walls? Dining and family room are nice, and that kitchen is very beautiful; love the height and ceiling details. Master is nice and open, but I think the layout could have had more thought put into it. If you’re going to have a TV in the bedroom, make it a separate sitting area OR have the TV facing the bed…the way it is setup in this home is a bit asinine. The rear pool area is also very nice.

    Overall, I like the home a lot. Pity about the location and the horrendous first impression you get stepping into the living room.

      wait the location is a pity? not only is scottsdale one of the most expensive real estate markets in the US, but apparently it’s a gorgeous city. its one of the top resort and golf destinations in the world, has a huge art community, and has a night scene comparable to that of miami’s south beach….. if that’s a “pity” to you then we really aren’t on the same page….

        Let’s just say I’m not a fan of the desert.

    Doesn’t look to shabby for me! I love the fireplace – probably the best I’ve ever seen and a great view from the pool. The interior is nice, maybe a few thing could be better. I don’t know about the entrance stuff.

    This is a great house. I love that the outside resembles a small village more than one large house. The style, which is perfect for the region, has been carried throughout the entire house and that’s a wonderful thing to see. Obviously someone put some thought into this. The spaces are impressive without being over-sized. They are sized to humans actually spending time in the spaces. I don’t mind that the living room is closed on three out of four walls; it makes it a destination instead of a place to pass through. Plus, the wall of arched windows overlooking the pool and the view makes it an impressive space. The kitchen is really stunning, and being open to the family room makes it a great space.

    TI hate that this place is in AZ. Even though the desert can be beautiful, I have no desire to live in a one. This house would actually work in a tropical/Mediterranean climate, and that would make it spectacular. Other than the location, the house itself is an absolute winner.

      I second each of your motions. Wouldn’t want to live in AZ (love the chilly WI weather), but if I did, this would be a great place. Excellent observation about making the living room a destination, rather than a glorified hallway.

      But by far my favorite attributes are the scale of the rooms (realistic) and the village-like exterior.

      Well put, Grrrowler.

    I love the exterior, even though it breaks every classical architecture rule there is about proportion, balance, etc. The picture of the home during dusk is beautiful. My wife (a photo stylist) says that taking exterior shots at dusk is a great trick a lot of magazines use when they do features on homes. It allows the photographer to draw attention away from areas that might not be so great (i.e. a front facing garage or boring landscaping) and use the lighting to focus on the good areas. However, this home seems not to really need to take the photo at dusk, but it does add a good affect.

      Agreed. The colors are almost super-saturated. Jewel tones. Lovely.

    This home is really nice, the outside is warm and inviting and the front courtyard is really amazing. While the inside seems a little cold (white and gray stone) it still seems to work. I am usually not to crazy about two story kitchens, but his one seems to really pull it off well.

    the interior is okay. some beautiful aspects (like the kitchen) although overall i would say that the interior doesn’t live up to what it could be. the exterior on the other hand is impeccable. absolutely gorgeous. its warm, inviting, and the landscaping is amazing…

    This is a very beautiful house to my eyes, Kenny. Thanks for posting.

    +1 with everyone who says that Scottsdale is a great place – I don’t live there and have been there only once, but it is a wonderful place and I can see why someone might want to live there.

    I love everything about this house inside and out. The only thing I would change would be to replace the carpet with wood floors in the bedrooms.

    Beautiful pictures on the builders website.
