Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

Price: $3,490,000

A 1962-built midcentury modern home on nearly one acre has come on the market in the Arcadia neighborhood of Scottsdale, Arizona. The sprawling residence has since been updated and expanded and now features five bedrooms and six bathrooms (including a guesthouse) on a 5,430-square-foot floorplan.

A butterfly roof frames the main house, where full-height windows, exposed beams, and materials like wood and brick create a contemporary home that combines the best elements of midcentury design. These include an open kitchen with breakfast nook and living area as well as multiple indoor-outdoor entertaining spaces, the least of which is a central courtyard with fountain feature.

Across from the courtyard is a new two-bedroom-two bath guesthouse with its own kitchen. Rounding out the property are a lap pool, gardens and garden beds, an outdoor kitchen, and landscaped lawns. A new, period-appropriate decorating scheme would take this residence to the next level.

Located at 6331 East Montecito Avenue, it’s offered at $3.49 million.
