Nestled into the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, this home was built in the late 70s with an ingrained sensibility of desert living. The original home had used natural light and native materials elegantly but needed to be updated to accommodate a modern lifestyle.
Small adjustments made a large impact to revitalize the home while maintaining the historic character. The enclosed kitchen was opened into the family room to create a large entertaining space. The master bathroom was expanded to include a large dual shower with natural lighting through skylights above. Unstained ash wood flooring emphasizes the natural expression found throughout the home and combines with oiled walnut mill work that responds to the exposed timber framing.
