This 5,200 square foot Paradise Valley Estate offers stunning views of iconic Camelback Mountain and space for outdoor entertaining.

Paradise Valley Estate exudes classic luxury. This home located in the high-end neighbourhood of Paradise Valley, features a master suite with large his and hers closets, a master patio and two guest bed and bathrooms. Designed for true indoor/outdoor living, this home offers stunning views of Camelback Mountain and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining. The classic Mediterranean home includes a white exterior complimented by pastel blue shutters and a red break entry path, making the home warm and inviting.

One of the most stunning features of this home is the kitchen. When designing it, the homeowners wanted a classic white kitchen that would stand the test of time – which is exactly what Interior Designer, Lissa Lee Hickman and PHX Architecture captured. The white kitchen in this particular home, effectively expands the space visually, creating an open and inviting look and feel. The custom see-through glass cabinets allow natural light to flow through to the kitchen area, while simultaneously creating a subtle transition between the two spaces. The white cabinets are paired with a neutral grey backsplash tiles to create warmth, while also avoiding having the space feel too stark. The grey tile backsplash and cabinets are offset by timeless Calcutta Gold Marble countertops, which were honed for ease of use and durability. In order to add a pop of colour, PHX Architecture chose to cover the bar stools in blue cloth, and also tie in the homeowner’ s heirloom Blue and White Chinese porcelain pieces.

Designed alongside Interior Designer, Lissa Lee Hickman the kitchen is simple yet elegant, clean yet colourful. Expansive and bright, the kitchen creates an inviting look and feel while also highlighting several porcelain pieces that the homeowners cherish – adding a personal touch to the space. The elegant and simple design allows it to enhance and compliment the desert landscape, iconic Camelback Mountain views and surrounding architecture.
