IGNORE DAYS ON MARKET (HOME WAS LISTED WELL PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION) The Joshua Tree House is a Modern Western Ranch residence created by acclaimed designer, Bob Bacon*. It is located on 2.1 acres of lush, high Sonoran Desert in the boutique, gated eight-home Windmill neighborhood just east of The Boulders in north Scottsdale. This ''NEVER-OCCUPIED'' home is offered at $2.745M with modern designer furnishings, art work, and Crestron Home Automation. It is move-in ready...simply bring your toothbrush. Windmill is less than five minutes from the center of the charming village of Carefree, with its art galleries, shopping and fine dining and just a couple of minutes more to the unique old 1875 mining and cowboy town of Cave Creek. (see ''More'')... Unlike most north Scottsdale developments, Windmill is close to working, vibrant towns with compelling histories, rather than just a brand-new shopping area. With lots averaging two acres, Windmill stands in contrast to other exclusive, gated north Scottsdale neighborhoods where lots typically average just one acre. Each home is a unique custom design, specifically reflecting the views and character of its site, carefully oriented to take advantage of the sun and mountain views, while achieving a carefully crafted combination of spaciousness and personal privacy. In Bob Bacon's words, "Windmill's character reflects the practical and casual ranch homes found throughout the west before design was influenced by fashion. Romantic and unpretentious in character, they are genuine American homes â“ timeless products of a simple, practical way of life. The Windmill neighborhood is offered to create long term, enduring value through the art of fine design and exceptional real estate." The Joshua Tree home's flexible design offers equal measures of versatility and beauty. The home is set around a central auto court, with a romantic, drive-under entrance flanked by raised entry porches. The design, flowing seamlessly as it does from the indoors to out, readily accommodates family activities or entertaining on any scale. With numerous covered porches and patios on virtually every side of the home, residents can choose sun or shade, any time of day, throughout the seasons. In addition to a detached guest house and a stately library/office, this splendid home features four spacious bedrooms each with its own bath. The bedrooms can double as exercise rooms, hobby rooms or art studios, as the resident wishes. The authentic ranch character of the compound is reflected by its attached, four-car drive through "barn". The property readily accommodates a pre-designed Car Collector garage for 4-6 vehicles, or more with lifts. Alternatively, the area could be used for additional living space, a hobby shop, a sculpture studio...you have room to dream. The generous Great Room with two fireplaces looks out to the main covered patio, with its own fireplace and video entertainment area. Facing southwest over an 8' fire feature and a reverse negative edge pool and spa, the space takes maximum advantage of the winter sun and incomparable Arizona sunsets. A perfect spot to relax as the day winds down. The Joshua Tree home includes many more features and upgrades: ---- 48" Wolf six-burner gas range with a griddle and dual electric ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, built-in Wolf microwave, Miele dishwasher. A unique waterfall edge Italian marble island with a built-in breakfast table for six. And, a separate walk in pantry. ---- A four seat Italian marble wine bar with Sub-Zero under-counter wine storage for 46 bottles and an additional under-counter beverage refrigerator. ---- Waterworks brass plumbing fixtures throughout the home. ---- Surround sound with speakers in a vaulted ceiling and a 75" flat screen in the Great Room, plus five other audio zones with ceiling speakers for the home's Sonos system. 65" flat screen TVs in the Master Bedroom and outdoor entertainment area. All Crestron controlled from a smart phone or tablet. ---- Five reclaimed Chicago brick fireplaces built to wood-burning standards. Two in the Great Room, one in both the master bedroom and luxurious casita and another on the main covered patio. ---- Enhanced landscaping plantings and lighting with a specimen Joshua Tree at the entry. ---- Custom West-of Memphis gas, wood, charcoal BBQ/smoker/pizza oven *Bob Bacon, honored as a "Master of the Southwest" in Phoenix Home and Garden magazine has designed every aspect of the eight home Windmill neighborhood, from the sinuous curve of the street, to the land use to the individual homes. Bob's other works include the Boulders Resort, the Scottsdale Princess and much more including over 200 luxury homes. Windmill is Bob's personal vision of fine living nestled in the Arizona Desert.
