11515 E MANANA Road, Cave Creek,
Step into Arizona authenticity- Designed by award winning architect, Clint Miller, this exquisite true adobe home sits peacefully hillside in Tonto Hills. Magical views of the panoramic mountains - The Four Peaks, Weaver's Needle and the Superstitions plus the lush Sonoran Desert at 3600 ft elevation, emanate from every window. The unique characteristics of adobe are seen throughout; arched doorways and corridors, 16'' walls, 10', 12' and 14' beamed ceilings, concrete and brick floors, wood framed windows and French doors, outdoor winding pathways and patios, all providing a sanctuary for living. To blend with today's modern lifestyle the kitchen, bathrooms and den have been updated accordingly. The kitchen has all new cabinets, high end appliances, quartzite counters with full splash and a 10' island with prep sink and bar seating. 2 stately metal pendants over the island and the Professional Wolf gas range and metal oven hood with grommets, impart an industrial aspect to the design. The views from the adjacent gracious great room provide peace and serenity from operable windows and the French doors. The curved wall and crystal chandelier in the formal dining room add extra interest to the flowing floor plan. For media or reading enjoyment the remodeled den offers leisure time with the mounted TV, dry bar space and adjoining remodeled powder room. The well-appointed guest ensuite with remodeled bath, efficient laundry and garage entrance complete the split side of the home. From the arched door entry, the sophisticated charm of the home is captured in every direction. Ahead is the office alcove with fireplace, tranquil outdoor vistas and a casita pathway exit. Privacy is felt in the Primary Suite with barn door entrance, fireplace, walk-in closet and remodeled luxury bath with Victoria and Albert soaking tub, extra-large steam shower with bench and 3 shower heads and soapstone double vanities with brass fixtures. Walk the winding pathway to the separate Casita. The oversized Casita den allows many options; office, studio or fitness as well as living space with an 11' breakfast bar with wood counter. The bedroom is ample size with an ensuite fully remodeled bath with walk-in shower. For guests' convenience the extended new pavered driveway with additional guest parking is a pleasure. As does the home, the outdoor space has remarkable views in every direction. The new pavered patios, cabana, view fencing and outdoor shower add hours of enjoyment around and in the pool. Desert pathways and raised patios will keep you outdoors all year around taking in all that the Sonoran Desert offers, truly the Arizona lifestyle. Tonto Hills community offers easy access the Raven's view bar and restaurant at the entry. Along with quick access into downtown Carefree, Cave Creek and Scottsdale for additional bars, restaurants, shopping and dining options.
