Set on 1.4 acres of the most striking landscape in Arizona, 6151 Caballlo Drive is a coveted Paradise Valley estate, bordered by verdant, manicured lawns, stone wall defined gardens and white roses. Of the many places the property’s stone pathways lead, one of the most intriguing is the enchanting one-bedroom guest cottage. Nestled against a charming cabana, and just steps from the swimming pool, the cottage is less “spare room” and more “resort villa” with 1,000 square feet of space. Use it to curl up with a favorite book, lounge poolside, or casually escape from the duties of the everyday—this is a place to dream, be it a warm desert day or a cool desert night.

The Space

Whether in use by the owners of the main house or their cherished guests, the cottage is a home away from home without ever having to leave the property.

The cottage follows the same classic construction aesthetic as the main house in order to preserve symmetry between the two buildings, but on a more intimate scale. Dark wooden beams adorn high vaulted ceilings, while light-colored shiplap walls and bare concrete floors create a bright, airy atmosphere. Balance is at the core of every aspect of the cottage, and though it feels modern, it simultaneously feels comfortable in a classic way. 

Unlike other, more limiting guesthouses, the cottage at 6151 Caballo Drive was built with the understanding guests rarely travel alone. The space can accommodate a single guest, a couple, or a small family with complete ease. Thanks to a creative floorplan, the cottage makes the most of its 1,000 square feet—in addition to the main bedroom and bathroom, the great room features two cleverly designed built in daybeds.

Perfection in Proximity

No need to stride endlessly across the lawn to jump in the pool, or beat the Arizona heat in the shade of the patio—the cottage is a literal splash away from both. Take a refreshing morning dip before relaxing on the patio with a cup of coffee, or escape the afternoon heat with a casual swim before air-drying in a perfectly shaded getaway. 

Escape Without Escaping

This guesthouse is a Paradise Valley hideaway designed to transport its occupants wherever they want to be. It can be both a place of intimate relaxation and energy-infused fun—whether sipping ice-cold lemonade, or a chilled flute of Veuve Clicquot, the cottage is an Arizona escape without equal. This is, without doubt or reservation, the most captivating guesthouse in the 85253 zip code.
