The approach to this contemporary Bighorn home is both dramatic and intimate. A private drive opens to an entry courtyard with a travertine walkway, which crosses over a meandering stream and leads to a set of dramatic front doors.
Beyond the foyer, a spacious living room features a double-sided fireplace, wet bar with stools, and an art wall with elongated niches to showcase one’s collection. To the right, a formal dining room provides ample seating for family and friends, who will be impressed by yet another stream that flows inside and out into an adjacent entertainment patio.
The kitchen boasts granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and an island with bar-style seating. The nearby family room offers casual dining, comfortable seating, and a media wall. Outside its doors are a covered patio with a fireplace, built-in barbecue center, and dining area.
Master bedroom highlights include an impressive marble slab fireplace wall, relaxing reading space, and sliding glass doors that open to reveal a secluded garden with oversize spa and natural landscaping. The master bath encourages pampering with his-and-her vanities, a glass shower, and a spacious walk-in closet with boutique slat-style shelving.
A guest wing with separate entry comes complete with a living room and three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms as well as its own courtyard and outdoor spa. A handcrafted stairway adjacent to the kitchen leads to a gym and an additional guest suite with courtyard and valley views. Near the garage, a detached apartment with a family room and guest suite is designed for on-site staff.
In addition to the entertainment patios, the backyard also showcases a graduated, beach-entry pool, palapas for shady lounging, and plenty of space for sunbathing.
