To grasp the sophistication and utility a library brings to a luxury home, consider the stately design of the library at 5676 E Cheney Drive.

Conceptualized and constructed by one of Arizona’s most prestigious homebuilders (Salcito Homes), this is a library of taste, with every detail planned to painstaking perfection. Note the craftsmanship of the carpentry across the ceiling, and the wood panels inlaid with copper around the library’s fireplace. These aren’t just details, they are judiciously planned accents that elevate the look and feel of the entire space.

Of these accents, none surpass the art glass pocket doors designed by Bob Berg of Chanikva Studio.

The “Master of the Southwest” according to Phoenix Home and Garden Magazine, Bob crafted these doors to accentuate the esthetics of the natural world, and bring the outside in. From the library’s main desk, one can take in the majestic views of Mummy mountain or the inspired views of Paradise Valley’s beauty—bright, blue days, followed by storied, sparklingly nights—making this an ideal room for contemplation and inspiration.
