Those desperately seeking the definition of authentic Arizona need look no further than 7001 E Languid Lane. Everything about this home—from its location amidst Black Mountain and Boulders to its ample inclusion of native cacti and plant-life—suggest nothing else.
This is 1.63 acres of desert bliss, the perfect architectural summation of everything Carefree, Arizona stands for.
Arizona’s rich infusion of Spanish culture is exquisitely captured in the layout of this home. In fact, it’s less home and more hacienda with traditional southwestern touches at every turn, like exposed wood vigas detailed with latillas, all stone floors, adobe-styled walls, and it’s kiva fireplace—an unmistakable icon that is quintessential Arizona.
Deep, covered patios wrap the home—a traditional regional feature—to provide residents with an outdoor escape where they can enjoy the endless views of the desert or a midday siesta in the shade.
And yet, unlike many of its counterparts in the local residential market, Languid Lane is in no way overbearing in its southwestern flair. It is a seamless cohesion between old-world and new that blends beautifully into the surrounding landscape.
The Outdoor Oasis
Languid Lane is your own private desert botanical garden.
The 1.63 acre property is lined with traditional brick pathways, rich stone patios, and countless species of native cacti—all of which are kept private by a series of adobe-styled walls paired with beautiful wrought iron gates.
Casually navigate the pathways at dusk—preferred libation in-hand—while taking in the sunset on the rough and tumble edges of Boulders.
Or, if a more sedentary mood strikes, lounge lazily beside the outdoor kiva fireplace amidst the sparking Arizona night sky.
And when the time comes to host friends and family, invite them to enjoy an utterly mouthwatering meal on the built-in barbeque, or take advantage of the luxurious pool, lavish water feature, elevated hot tub, and 1-bedroom Casita.
The Inviting Interior
At 5-bedrooms and 5.5-baths, Languid Lane is a home in the truest sense of the word—perfect for groups of all sizes—and the interior is an ideal complement to the inviting simplicity of the property’s outdoor spaces.
Glass doors and windows are prevalent throughout the house, but in keeping with the personality of a Hacienda-styled home. Each room offers a different point of view with direct access to the deep portales.
But if one is looking for the crown jewel of Languid Lane’s striking interior, they need look no further than the meticulously planned kitchen.
The unquestioned beating-heart of the home, the open kitchen is nothing short of perfection. Strikingly finished wooden cabinetry envelopes a centrally located island that acts as the ideal space for food preparation or intimate entertaining. And when it comes to the actual cooking part, the large six-burner gas range makes any meal a possibility.
