It is an extraordinary feat to build a home that is uncompromising in design and quality, finished inside and out with exceptional details and materials. The perfect balance in every way, La Harmonia is ideally positioned in the heart of Paradise Valley within walking distance of the new Ritz-Carlton, as well as the finest dining, shopping, and entertainment in Scottsdale. Stunning architecture with glass rooms and breezeways that blend refined living with a tamed outdoor desert lifestyle. Privately gated entrance to a four-car garage, but approachable and inviting for guests from the street, this home can be opened seamlessly for entertaining throughout the property, across multiple lush outdoor gardens and courtyards.
Thoughtfully positioned on this 1.1-acre lot to showcase jaw dropping head to tail views of Camelback and its iconic Praying Monk. Meticulous landscape architecture featuring front and back courtyards, natural lawn, heated pool with Baja shelves at both ends, and a sunken spa.
Marked by the two architecturally distinctive glass wrapped rooms at the front of the house, guests are greeted by opposing 10′ pivot doors that can be opened to allow seamless flow to the rear courtyard and showcase the 100-year-old Arizona Ironwood just beyond.
The front courtyard, with its perfectly manicured landscaping, also offers guests the ability to enter the office or to enjoy the outdoor fireplace just steps from the dining room. A second 100-year-old Ironwood offers privacy and a natural canopy for peaceful evenings.
Once inside, the floor to ceiling glass breezeways lead to the split master suite, office, bath with his and her water closets, and extensive custom his and hers master closet with a second washer / dryer. Just beyond the master suite a short walkway beneath a trellis leads to the flex room (exercise/yoga, golf simulator, second office, or theater).
The main living space is flanked by doors to courtyards on both sides. The 15′ glass slider in the massive, vaulted great room is fully pocketed, opening to the rear patio, pool, and 1-Bedroom guest house at the back of the property. The true chef’s kitchen includes stunning glass front custom cabinetry in both the main and Butler’s kitchen. A custom paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer and fully custom 60″ Bluestar range with double ovens, anchor the kitchen beneath a custom cabinet wrapped hood. The generous Butler’s kitchen / pantry features Wolf steam oven, coffee maker, ice maker, and a second dishwasher and sink. An indoor/outdoor bar top and bifold window opens to the outdoor covered patio and built-in grill.
The guest side of the house includes 3 en-suite bedrooms with walk in closets and a secondary living room for entertaining or for family/kids’ playroom. The split four car garage with EV chargers leads into a mudroom with custom benches and the laundry room featuring a dog wash.
The entire house was designed to overlook the lush backyard, featuring a custom heated pool and sunken spa. A beautiful guest house with en-suite bedroom includes a living room, kitchenette, and pool bath with outdoor shower. The guest house is flanked by a citrus orchard.
