A divine example of desert modernism has just come on the market in Scottsdale, Arizona, by Phoenix master architect Al Beadle. Known as “the steel and glass man,” Beadle created hundreds of residences and commercial buildings in his signature “Beadle Box” style that incorporated simple, modular design elements like boxy profiles, flat roofs, and walls of glass.

The Anderson House features all of these aspects and more. Considered one of his most enduring designs, the 2,686-square-foot three-bedroom sits on nearly two acres and boasts a spacious split-level floorplan that takes in the desert landscape from multiple sides.

Built in 1989, the residence was recently restored to its original condition, with the original white Italian tile, millwork, fireplace, and “Beadle-white” kitchen cabinets still in place. The rectilinear structure’s overhanging steel-beamed roof provides shade as well as “a delightful play of light and shadow,” according to the listing.

Ample storage, a three-car garage, finished concrete floors, a pool, and a signature sculptural “entry gate” complete this property. Located at 34046 N. Segundo Circle, it’s offered at $989,000.
