From Pinnacle Peak to Camelback Mountain to the McDowell Sonoran Reserve Gateway, this region is absolutely mapped with trails and non-motorized escapes just begging for exploration. 

But exercise need not be limited to off-property pursuits.

A Luxury Wardrobe Deserves a Luxury Dressing Room

No master bedroom can consider itself complete without the addition of a dream-come-true dressing room. The type of dressing room that simultaneously catalogs every element of your wardrobe with meticulous precision and complete convenience.

The three-keys to creating a luxury residential dressing room are simple. They are: Lavish, Lighting, and Legroom.

Legroom
Outside of the bedroom, the dressing room is where you should feel the most comfortable. There should be plenty of Legroom to twist, turn, try-on, slip-off, and get ready for the day. After all, a dressing room without legroom isn’t a dressing room at all—it’s a glorified closet. 

Lighting
And when it comes to getting ready for the day, luminous Lighting is everything. It is the key to making sure clothes are wrinkleless, shoes are scuff-free, accessories are sparking, and the entire outfit is coming together in harmony. 

Lavish
No dressing room is complete without an ample splash of Lavish. This means shoe shelving, rods for high-hanging garments, dressing tables with chairs, ample cabinetry, and maybe even an island. 

When all three elements of the ideal dressing room come together, it creates something beyond expression—you simply need to see it to believe it. 
 


9701 E Happy Valley Lot 2

There is no disguising the centerpiece of this luxury dressing room—the partitioned, 9-row shoe shelf is a show-stopping sight to behold.  From heels to flats, working boots to cowboy boots, this shoe shelf is for those with a serious passion for the finest in footwear.  In here, it’s best to build an outfit from the ground up. And while you’re building it, ask yourself what the buyers of Bond Street, and the couture clientele of Avenue des Champs Elysées would wear? After all, this is a space for bespoke wears, worthy of the finest European boutiques. 

6151 Caballo Drive

Uncompromising luxury. Those are the only two words capable of describing the his and her dressing room experience of 6151 Caballo. For him, it’s a space to unleash his inner George Clooney. For her, it’s an ambiance to channel the glamour of Gisele and the timeless elegance of Grace Kelly. Every imaginable dressing room necessity has been accounted for and then accentuated. There are garment racks worthy of Ermenegildo Zegna, shelving units deserving of Christian Louboutin, and glass-encased cabinetry suitable for names like Tiffany and Rolex. In this dressing room, it is an air of modern sophistication that radiates forth from every angle. 

6448 El Sendero Road

When it comes to looking good, seeing is believing, which is why light, light, and more light is the essence of the walk-through master dressing room at 6448 El Sendero Road. This is a room of subdued elegance—the perfect place to experiment with fun, new, image-enhancing ensembles, or revisit your tried and true, signature looks. Glass-clad doors protect everything from high-hanging garments to neatly-folded vintage wares, and the drawer-laden island is ideal for hiding the unmentionables or disguising a hamper. 

Luxury Living Deserves Luxury Leisure

In the realm of luxury real estate, a media room is a must.

A place to lounge comfortably to take in the latest award-winners from Cannes and Sundance, or watch the big game on Super Bowl Sunday. 

A space to set up tables for pool, poker, or any other refined recreational activity imaginable. 

For some inspiration on what your next game or media room might look like, take a look at these three relaxation-ready spaces…
 


9701 E Happy Valley Road No. 2

This is your private parlor. A place where only good friends and selected family are allowed. 

Ideally positioned off-the family room and just steps from the 500-bottle wine cellar, lies the media room of every homeowner’s dreams. A media room engineered for the sole purpose of making its occupants supremely happy. 

Invite selected guests to join you as you unwind from a long week with the celestial flavors of a favorite Napa Valley cab or Côte d'Or pinot noir.

Care for a contest? Channel your inner pool shark in this elegantly designed, Arizona game room, located just off the family room of 9701 E Happy Valley Road Lot 18.

But competitors be warned—trying to bank the eight-ball into the corner pocket can be more than difficult…the awe-inspiring views of Pinnacle Peak just outside have been known to make more than one player scratch in a moment of forgotten focus.

Minimalist in nature, this is a game room built on clean-lines and uncomplicated attitudes that cultivate a profound sense of relaxation. Even the most intense contests will feel somewhat subdued in this space. 

When the final ball is sunk, step directly out onto the patio for a cigar and some post-game chitchat amidst the temperate evening air. If it gets too chilly, warm hands by the crackle of the wood-burning fireplace, and warm hearts with a selection from the beverage bar or wine cooler.

Clad in sporty blue, and built to accommodate even the rowdiest of crowds, the media and game room at 6151 Caballo

is a little slice of sports-lover paradise. Both the game room and theater room are entirely soundproofed so big volume is never a big problem, and the multi 4 panel screen-viewing experience is dramatically enhanced by the user-friendly Savant home automation system. 

This room is, at its core, about the people in it. In appearance, it’s both classic and playful, timeless and modern. It is a blend of eras and worlds to create something that looks as good as it feels. 

Sleek glass barn doors, paneled wood walls, and a fabric finished ceiling, lend a fun-filled spirit to the sound proof room that speaks to its single purpose—bringing a smile to the people using it. 
 

Blue And White Rooms

The spectacular waters of the South Pacific or Côte d'Azur aren’t the only places where taking in the bluest of blues is possible—just ask builder G M Hunt, architect Clay Scrivner, and designer Terese Messin who brought 6151 Caballo from conception to reality. One of Paradise Valley’s most sought after estates, this 1.4 privately gated home is adorned in the shades of sapphire, agate, and topaz at every turn. From the cabinetry in the butlers pantry, to the walls of the game room, to the accents of the dining room—6151 Caballo owns the designation for colorful home of the year. But the centerpiece of this blue-roomed beauty isn’t a room at all, it’s the translucent turquoise fluidity of the luxurious, lawn-bordered pool.

It is not every day you see a blue butler's pantry, then again it is not every day you see a butler's pantry as impressive as this one. Perfectly set up for the pampered chef or hostess to entertain your guests properly. 


Classic colors are timeless, especially eye-catching at 4635-Ocotillo. Associated with the elements of nature that we think of as ever present: rock stone, pebbles, marble or granite. It catches your attention, it's an ultimate accessory to compliment your home. 

Outdoor Dining Experiences

In Arizona, the art of outdoor dining is not one to overlook. It is an integral element of Southwestern culture, and an indispensable part of the privilege of living in seasonal serenity.

Winter, spring, summer, or fall—the weather is always right for an al fresco dining experience. 

So, what’s on the menu tonight? 


4635 E Ocotillo

When visitors arrive at 4635 E Ocotillo, they tend to be speechless—the signature views of Camelback have that effect on people. Eventually, your guests will stop gazing at the imposing aura of the mountains in the distance, giving you the opportunity to walk them towards the open-air dining area just off the kitchen. Here they can enjoy the fragrances of rosemary and white rose while sipping the cocktail of their choice. In the springtime, it’s the perfume of orange and pear blossoms that enhance the dinnertime air. 

9701 E Happy Valley

At 9701 E Happy Valley, no one ever dines al fresco alone—Pinnacle Peak and Troon Mountain join the table during every meal. As you sit beneath a gazebo entwined with the vines of honeysuckle, allow the rich aromas of the desert to consume your olfactory senses—there’s acacia, prickly-pear, and jasmine in the air. When the meal is through, take a measured pace as you make your way barefoot through carpeted lawn en-route to the house…or maybe the pool? 

15883 N 107th Place

Walking into 15883 N 107th Place, it might be hard to see the outdoor dining potential at first glance. The home owns a decidedly chic interior design that suggests to occupants a life lived indoors is a life lived best. But that suggestion slips silently away as soon as the backdoor swings open, revealing a quietly enclosed patio space, perfectly suited for an early-evening, fireside meal. Dine in peace knowing the only interruption to the conversation will be the silent departure of the setting sun.  

6448 E EL Sendero

An elevated home should offer an elevated outdoor dining experience, and where some of the homes in Carefree might miss, 6448 E El Sendero Road delivers without equivocation. Transition from inside to out with irreplaceable ease. Retractable wall of glass in the great room make walking out to the barbecue an effortless venture. When the cooking on the grill is complete, sit down with friends and family to enjoy the fruits of your labor. From the table, enjoy an oasis-like immersion as your eyes transition from the glittering water of the infinity pool, to the rust-clad earth of the desert valley far below.  

More interested in a casual cocktail than a full-meal? Pull back the glass sliding doors, open the wall of windows, and take a seat with that special someone at the wet bar. Even though you’re technically inside, it won’t feel like it. This is, without question, the best bar in Carefree

10040 Happy Valley

An outdoor dining experience adds a special touch to any course. Enjoy panoramic views of mountains and golf courses from this privacy filled home, strategically located in an exclusively guard-gated community of Desert Highlands. This home caters to the ideal Scottsdale indoor-outdoor lifestyle and offers all the right features designed to entertain with expansive living areas.

6151 Caballo

With 1.4 acres of privately-gated property—there’s more than enough room at 6151 Caballo to throw a lavish outdoor party or host an intimate dinner for two. Step through the stately arches of glass French-doors to the backyard where the stainless-steel barbeque awaits your master griller’s touch. Rather see the stars whilst sharing conversation and sipping an aperitif? Do so amidst the privacy of the sprawling lawns, backlit by Mummy Mountain Views and accented with the scents of lavender, rose, and orange blossom.

Sleek Bathrooms

Admittedly, the word bathroom isn’t sexy. It lacks the allure of foyer, and is devoid of the majesty associated with something like the great room.

But for the owners of a luxury home, there is no room other than perhaps the kitchen that is as important.

A true master bath—like the ones sampled below—is the desire of many. A place for indulgent flair and incomparable—a space that’s more spa like.

It is an in-home oasis for that perfect start to the day, or the ideal wrap-up to the night.


6151 Caballo
When architect Clay Scrivner sat down to sketch this Paradise Valley masterpiece, he and the homeowners clearly had a theme in-mind—unencumbered lux. In line with that theme, one of the first design decisions involved the planning of his and her bathrooms in the master suite. Linked by a sleek laundry room, the bathrooms’ own stylish amenities reflective of their masculine and feminine dispositions. On his—rich brunette cabinetry, paired with boldly patterned stone floor and steam shower. On hers—a lovely vanity, and generous amounts of art-glass lend give the space a distinctly female flair, and a walk-in marble-tiled shower make every early AM-rinse feel like a trip to the spa.

4635 E Ocotillo
Whether prepping for cocktails with friends or a black-tie gala, the ornate fixtures, open design plan, and generous vanities make this the ideal bathroom for getting ready. Yes, 4635 E Ocotillo Road, has many delights across its 1.14 acres, but none are as personal and pleasing as the master bath. A spacious tub, with window overlooking the verdant yard is the centerpiece of the room, granting bathers their own slice of Versailles. Steal a soak with a glass of sauvignon blanc whilst reading the book du jour, or—if preferred—step into the steam shower for a bathing experience that is just shy of divine. 

9701 E Happy Valley
When the time has come to walk away from the expansive living room and retire for the evening, don’t just go to bed—unwind in a master bath even The Four Seasons would be jealous of. Enjoy a steamy soak in this luxury tub, while viewing the flickering flames of a soul-warming fire dancing just outside in the privately-walled meditation area. Designed for the discerning, and delivered for the distinguished, the master bath at 9701 E Happy Valley is unlike any other. The photos say what words can’t. 

Signature Swimming Pools

In the sphere of high-end Arizona living, nothing makes more of a profound statement than the pool—it is a feature no desert property should be without. Be it spring, summer, autumn, or winter, the pool is a main attraction in Arizona—a place for kids to play, houseguests to gawk, and owners to unwind with wine and setting sun. 

In Arizona, the pool is more than a place to sneak away for a dip—it Is an escape in the truest sense of the word. An avenue for the imagination to travel anywhere it wants to be—from the white sand beaches French Riviera to the aqua-marine waters of Santorini—simply by stepping outside. 

No homes better capture the significance a pool brings to a southwestern property than the three fantastic examples featured below. 


When Architect Clay Scrivner, and designer Terese Messin sat down to sketch out the future of 6151 Caballo, they left nothing to chance. Every element of the home has been meticulously planned, including the pristine turquoise waters of the pool. Just steps from both the guesthouse and main house, this is less swimming pool and more swimming experience, equally suited to accommodate early morning laps or late-night parties. Pay special note to the tower water feature—the perfect place to momentarily escape the summer sun without having to abandon the tranquility of the water. 

An exclusive and enviable amenity, the pool at 10040 Happy Valley offers a spalike level of recreation that transforms a residence from the spectacular to the sublime. Today’s residential indoor pools are far from ordinary. Whatever the weather forecast, a pool at this prestigious North Scottsdale location ensures year-round enjoyment, a world away from nature’s mercurial elements.

As North Scottsdale properties go, 9701 E Happy Valley's pool checks every box—scenic views of Pinnacle Peak and Troon Mountain from every angle, a generous spa ideally suited for entertainment, and the acoustics of falling water to set a decidedly relaxed mood. Designed by the well-renowned Gary Gietz, this isn’t just another swimming hole—it is a Sapphire in liquid form. An idyllic example of what all luxury homeowners should aspire for when considering a pool for their home. 

At 4635 E Ocotillo Road you will find an utterly inviting water-filled oasis enveloped in verdant lawn. A place to lean back with a frigid glass of lemon-infused Perrier and take-in the stunning landscape, a landscape highlighted by imposing views of Camelback Mountain. If traditional relaxation isn’t in the itinerary, simply use this emerald-cut masterpiece for some exercise by churning out lap after lap during the early morning hours.  

Small Spaces Made Special

Amidst the grandeur, the pomp, and circumstance that surrounds luxury living, it can be all too easy to lose sight of the little things. All luxury homes are grand, imposing in both stateliness and stature, and laden with amenities that have become regularities. 

The expansive kitchen, the multi-car garage, the generous guest room—these are former defining characteristics of an elite home. But as these fixtures have become more common, luxury home designers have had to reinvent ways of defining the difference between extraordinary and average. 

And that’s why today’s luxury home isn’t defined by the significance of its great room, or the extravagance of its pool—it is defined by how it makes the small places special.

 

The Powder Room

A nuanced amenity for the truly refined in taste, the powder room at 6151 Caballo is a minor feature with a major impact on the lux-living persona of this particular Paradise Valley Estate. While functionality, style, and authenticity form the backbone of this home's tasteful design, it’s signature additions like the powder room that convey an attitude that is both bespoke and haute. 

The Foyer

All homes have an entrance, but not all homes have the luxury of a fabulously designed foyer. Unblemished and unencumbered, the foyer of 25290 N 90th Way is for the truly refined in taste. Something that conveys this is a home for luxury living in no uncertain terms. Like the Desert Skyline Community in which 25290 N 90th Way resides, the foyer is a warm welcome to the modern southwestern lifestyle. 

The Fitness Center

Every home worthy of a second look can offer an impressive kitchen, but only luxury homes like 15883 N 107th Way in the Community at Castle Chase can provide amenities than include a state-of-the-art fitness center. From free-weights to the treadmill, a sweat can be had here morning, noon, or night—ideal for those unwilling to allow life to be defined by a schedule. When the hard work is done, go for a refreshing swim in the pool, or cool-off with a casual stroll along one of the many walking paths available to residents of Castle Chase. 

Wine Cellars. Appreciation for the Finer Things.

When it comes to comfortable living, some items are optional while others are not, and the wine cellar is the latter of the two. Whether storing a priceless bottle of 1852 Le Fiet Rothchild, or a leftover magnum of Moet from a friend’s wedding shower, a well-stocked wine cellar is an absolute essential—an unmistakable signature of any home worthy of the designation luxury. The wine cellar is a statement feature. An amenity that says as much about the wine it houses as it says about the property as a whole.

The native ambiance of a truly elite wine cellar automatically elevates the tasting experience. From uncorking and decanting, to sampling and evaluating, the right cellar can transform even the most mediocre wines into vinicultural masterpieces that are merely a single degree south of divine.

Yet few wine enthusiasts and even fewer luxury home owners actually have a wine cellar they can call their own. To grasp with complete clarity what it means to own an impressive wine cellar, look no further than the featured Arizona property below.

When walking into the wine cellar of 6151 Caballo, only one word comes to mind—special—because that’s exactly what the cellar is. Also known as The Bistro, this cellar is as much about storage as it is luxury entertaining. When friends and family enter, their eyes will naturally jump to the carefully-cut blue agate bar before relaxing to take in the overall grandeur of the space—candelabra-styled, iron chandeliers, earthy limestone walls, and the signature fixture—a sleek, climate-controlled, custom glass wine cellar decorated with refreshing whites and full-bodied reds. 

Rustic yet elegantly refined, the cellar of 9701 East Happy Valley Road was built to meet the needs of both amateur collectors and aspiring sommeliers. Wines are securely kept on finished oak racks not unlike the storage houses of Bordeaux and Burgundy, and wrought-iron gating offers a decidedly artisanal finish. A single lantern illuminates the space to create a nostalgic glow that transports one back to the cellars of old. For a home designed to cater to those with discerning tastes through and through, no wine cellar could be more appropriate. 

Efficient and convenient space is demonstrated here at 10040 Happy Valley home where display of a few decorative wine racks and a wine cooler will keep all your favorite labels under perfect temperature control and easily accessible.

Work Hard. Spaces That are Dynamic and Engaging

Rather than endure the inconvenience of converting the family room or kitchen counter into a portable office every weekend, consider creating a space where the sole purpose is promotion and cultivation of deep, uninterrupted work. 

These spaces need not be boring, blasé venues that commonly come to mind at the behest of the word “office”—they can be dynamic and engaging, built for both high-function and high-aesthetic. For insight into what such a space might look like, examine the four magnificently-made studies below.

With a commanding view of the primary entrance—a courtyard complete with wedding-white roses and stone-clad greenery—the primary study of 6151 Caballo is a space for truly inspiring work. Featuring custom millwork and meticulous stylings, everything about this home’s unique character is personified within the study. Just off the primary study, an air condition solarium. When pressing pause on the workday becomes necessary, the solarium is an ideal place to recharge. The secondary study is equally inspiring but decidedly different than its main counterpart. Airy wood walls with a captivating grain make it an easy environment to sit and work, while a garden-view greenhouse window offers the mind a place to wander in search of much needed inspiration. 

With 1.14 acres of courtyards, antique water features, and sensational gardens, 4635 E Ocotillo is a property where the temptation to escape outside can overwhelm even the most focused workers. To account for this, architects designed this home with two studies—one for deep, reclusive work and another for tasks that require less-than-complete attention. The former is a classic space where richly finished wood is the unapologetic theme. Warm, walnut flooring meshes masterfully with paneled walls and custom-designed bookshelves. The latter space is conveniently located in the very heart of the home, simultaneously open to the kitchen, family room, and guest wing. Its signature?—an unobstructed view of the main courtyard . Open the window to enjoy the soothing sounds of the main water feature or to bask in the perfume of fragrant blooms.

At first glance, the grounds of 9701 East Happy Valley Road seem built exclusively with play in-mind, but a closer examination reveals a delicately hidden reality—it is ideally suited for the contempletive life. Should anything else be expected from the brillaint mind of builder Gary Gietz? The flagship of this quiet contemplation is of course the study. Academically designed and artfully assembled, the study offers hand-carved wood finishes, black walnut floors, and signature views of the desert beyond. Read or work with ease as the soothing sounds from the terraced fountain outside flutter through the window with ease. 

Those who can afford to live in North Scottsdale know exactly what it takes to get to the top—a lot of hard work. But it’s not always realistic to keep that work confined to the boundaries of the office downtown, and that’s why having an at-home study like the one at 10040 Happy Valley Road is absolutely essential. Let no work go undone in this masterfully designed fortress of solitude. When the work for the day is done and it’s finally time to play, sneak outside for a quick 18 along the Jack Nicklaus signature desert golf course.  

THE GATHERING PLACE | Luxury Family & Living Rooms

Traditionally, family rooms are meant for relaxing and socializing. A place where friends and family come together. The family room also presents the perfect opportunity to make a statement and set a tone for your entire decorating style. Whether it’s a rustic, elegant or minimalist, modern or traditional you can gather inspiration from these five extraordinary homes below to create a family room where you can entertain family and friends.

Set against the backdrop of Paradise Valley’s Camelback Mountain, the stunning 1.4 acres of 4635 E Octotillo are a sight to behold. The entry courtyard is the feature that welcomes visitors to the property, while the invigorating spa is the one that makes them feel at-home. Hand-troweled moldings, an intricately carved limestone fireplace, and exposed wood finishes are the accents of the living room, while the signature of the professionally-styled chef's kitchen is, without doubt, the boveda-brick domed breakfast nook.

One of Paradise Valley’s crown jewels, 6151 Caballo is an intimate setting, ideally suited for both the limelight and moonlight depending upon the occasion. Living areas own richly exposed woodwork juxtaposed against clean, linen-like ceilings for a look and feel that is as distinct as the property itself. Enveloped in a generous helping of paned glass, the family room is featured in the best of ways as an outdoor space yet decidedly a part of the property’s surrounding landscape.   

A gated, north Scottsdale community, Desert Highlands caters to those in search of estate-sized luxury and comfort within a painted desert setting. At more than 5,700 square feet, this home is highlighted by sweeping views of Pinnacle Peak Mountain and greater Paradise Valley. Lounge lazily in the expansive living room where polished flagstone meets with floor to ceiling windows to create a seamless transition between indoor and out.

Nestled into Black Mountain and overlooking the beautiful town of Carefree, 6448 El Sendero is a home built to enjoy the serenity of the expansive Arizona desert from an unchallenged vantage. A gated entrance ensures round-the-clock privacy, while open architecture welcomes friends and family day or night. The family room is simultaneously modern and rustic with crisp, clean right angles of a contemporary architectural style contrasting perfectly with the natural, dissymmetry of the flagstone floor. 

Few homes can suggest—let alone offer—the cleanliness in design of 25290 N 90th Way. It is a delightful dose of modernism and genuine southwestern living. The living room is a place for quiet contemplation, a retreat where the steam rising off your cup of Blue Mountain coffee couldn’t be more appropriate. Let the morning light pour in, and the worries of yesteryear flow out. 

6151 E Caballo Drive –Luxurious Guest Cottage

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.
