Location: Phoenix, Arizona
Here’s your chance to live in a brand new architect-built home in Phoenix, Arizona. Designed by local firm the Ranch Mine, the sleek, modern house was inspired by the vernacular mission architecture of the region and is formed by two simple gabled volumes connected by a low brick wall, on the other side of which is an open courtyard.
Measuring 2,505 square feet, the clean-lined dwelling is divided into two zones, with living areas occupying one structure, and private quarters in the other. In one, an open-plan great room comprises a living and dining area and a kitchen, with a vaulted tongue-and-groove hemlock ceiling, polished concrete floors, and sliding glass doors opening directly onto the courtyard and a stone patio on the other side.
The sleeping wing features three spacious bedrooms, including a master suite with a walk-in closet and an open shower with freestanding tub. Outside, the courtyard is anchored by a rusted steel-clad outdoor fireplace, while a small lawn provides some greenery in addition to the patches of desert landscaping.
As for the exterior, white walls are topped by weathered-steel roofs, with light brick adding texture in parts. Set along the Arizona Canal at 1145 East Orangewood Avenue, the home is offered at $724,900. Have a look.
