One of Desert Mountain's premier homes "Stonehill", sits on nearly 10 pristine acres of Sonoran Desert and is adjacent to over 100 acres of land (that will remain undeveloped). This sprawling residence offers a casual and elegant lifestyle in a Desert Paradise. Breathtaking views accompanied by warm woods and limestone finishes enhance the modern-organic farmhouse feel. Entertaining is a dream, inside or outside, with French and bi-fold doors that open up to large covered/uncovered patio areas that feature an herb garden, fire pit, pool, spa and outdoor seating. A butler's pantry offers ease of access to formal dining, 1400+ bottle wine cellar, walk-in pantry, kitchen and the outdoor living and dining rooms. (More) A large media room, lovingly referred to as the "Bad Boys Room", features plenty of space for a pool table and includes two televisions, a massive limestone fireplace with hearth and custom iron work. A copper-topped custom finish wet bar with room for four pull-up bar stools is a welcomed evening retreat for you and your guests. Family and friends will enjoy their stay in any one of the six en suite bedrooms that includes an 822 sq. ft. private guest house with kitchen and patio. The large Master Suite is simply perfect with a sitting area and bejeweled fireplace, Venetian plaster walls and ceiling treatment along with a private door to the spa and pool area. His and Her closets, separate toilet rooms and a stand-alone tub surrounded by private, gorgeous views of the Continental Mountains...take a moment to soak in the luxury. A 130 yard long driveway rises to a spacious auto courtyard of approximately 3600 square feet that is covered with Yorkstone premium pavers and gives way to a four-door garage which holds up to six cars with 12' ceilings and could accommodate lifts with the potential of an add-on garage. A gated front courtyard, with outstanding custom desert gardens, ivy covered pergola, office access via stone staircase, large stone water feature at front door entrance, and a life-size statue of a prowling mountain lion opposite the front entrance to the house, is a grand welcome for you and your guests. Multiple outdoor seating areas surround the property and take advantage of the incredible views and privacy from nearly every angle of the home. Finishes and lighting for both indoor and outdoor spaces are simply exquisite, reclaimed barn wood and occasional limestone fossils give in to the farmhouse feel complimented by touches of Venetian plaster and contemporary light fixtures; this creates the perfect combination of casual elegance and a luxury lifestyle worth living. Membership to the Desert Mountain Club is not included but is available.
