Flawless Contemporary Spread in Tucson Ups Price by $1M

New, 5 comments

Months after Arizona's 3.5-acre austere spread by architect Rick Joy, a monolith of sweeping metal cladding and glass snuggled within the scrubby cacti of Tucson, listed for $4.595M, the place lingers on the market—curiously asking a whole $1M more than its March price. The structure's second story—with low-slung, architectural furnishings and glass for walls—cantilevers over the carport, which affords some 3:10 to Yuma-style views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The 6,480-square-foot, five-bedroom Ventana Canyon Home—"an unparalleled custom desert home for connoisseurs of fine architecture," writes the brokerbabble—has also earned a laundry list of architecture awards, including the super fancy-sounding "Academy of Award in Architecture." Ah, but the pièce de résistance? That sparse array of furniture, handpicked by the architect, is, according to Architectural Digest, which recently spotlighted the house, included in the $5.595M ask.
