    Hmmm. Not italian at all. It smacks of trying too hard to look like a poor mexican village. It doesn’t work. Rooms like the “bar” room are terrible. Ackwardly shaped for anything other then passing through to another room. Then there is the room in pictures 8, 9,10 and 11 which completely confuses me. The sliding glass doors are horrific. There is tons of covered outdoor space, so why bastardize your architecture to accomodate a space that doesn’t tie in to it in any way?

    I’ve never understood the home theater room, especially like this. It would sit unused 99% of the time. Stoopit.

      I agree. If one is going to try to pull off this “faux rustic hacienda” look, one has to be very, very, careful to do it a way that doesn’t seem ridiculous. Unfortunately, in this case it does seem ridiculous. The place in New Mexico a few weeks ago did it much better.

      At least the home theater room seats more than 5. What I never understand are the ones that have only a few seats – I feel like I’ve seen some with as few as 3!

      Like the rarely used home movie theater, I do not understand the bars built into family rooms. How often do people really use these? Do people really sit at the bar on the uncomfortable stools with their backs turned to the room? Like a home theater, they look cool-but I think a waste of space.

    I like the kitchen, minus the cabinets. I think the ceiling and stonework look cool, but it also looks like something that would be covered in cobwebs in about 3 months time. The theater arrangement is confusing. Do they have a mini IMAX screen in there? If not, why did they make it 8 seats wide? A 4X4 combo would seem more logical.

    I love Scottsdale. Among the hottest cougars & MILFs you’ll find anywhere in America. This place…meh. Too “sprawly”.Did the architect work for Disney?

      You obviously don’t hang out on the CT gold coast. Women in the desert are all dried out and wrinkled from sun exposure, but not us. We call them RHINOS. Really High Income Nasty Old Skin.

    Nice place in the desert. However the terra cotta tile floors look slippery.The wood beam ceilings look real old – cobwebs would become them. I don’t like outside wood, it will sun rot in AZ. The best part for me are the extensive covered patios.

    I love the exterior. The southwestern hacienda look works for me. The interior is…well, it’s a big disappointment to say the least. The kitchen is interesting, but the rest is just not there. There are some interesting rustic details, but the theme is not fully implemented and it falls on its face.
