With renovations complete, this Vernon Swaback masterpiece is briefly being offered for sale. The pedigree of Frank Loyd Wright is evident throughout its design. A genuine hilltop retreat, prominently perched above the city lights without any Association to govern its use. The combination of architecture and unobstructed 360-degree views provide unparalleled privacy. The front courtyard alone gives residents a direct line of sight from Cardinals Stadium in Glendale all the way to Tempe Town Lake, all without taking a single step. Upon entering, your attention will be drawn immediately to the great room. Below soaring ceilings, flanked by fireplaces on either side, sits the fully equipped bar with seating for a dozen guests. - CONTINUEDThe wall directly behind is constructed entirely of glass from floor to ceiling. Beyond it you will find a gourmet outdoor kitchen, putting greens, pool, hot tub and unparalleled views of Piestewa Peak. The kitchen has been completely redone with premium finishes and appliances. Natural stone slabs were hand picked to compliment a water jetted marble backsplash. All new flooring transitions seamlessly through each of the 5 bedrooms and 6 baths. The owner's suite includes picturesque seating and some of downtowns best views. A luxurious ensuite features oversized double shower with multiple heads and soaking tub. All with a primary closet so spacious its currently being utilized as a nursery. State of the art technologies have been retrofitted from Lutron Lighting and surround sound to the custom security system. Accessibility features include a private elevator with direct entry from the garage. In order to fully appreciate this home, it must be seen in person. At the age of 17, Vernon Swaback joined Taliesin and worked directly with FLW for over 20 years. He founded Swaback Partners and continued his legacy through award winning designs, including DC Ranch and Biltmore Estates. Vernon remains the only actively practicing architect to have worked with Wright. He authored a handful of books over 66 years spent perfecting his craft. This property was featured in "The Custom Home" along with photos and Vernon's description of it below. Swaback wrote the following: "Marriage of House and Site: A House should be a companion to the beauty of its setting, including the use of color, forms, lighting, landscaping, terraces and other architectural extensions that marry the house to the land. Living in the mystery of beauty is performance art at its best"
