A Dream Team Comes Together Like a Symphony to Create a Custom Estate That is a Work of Art, introducing Ellington Heights in Silverleaf''There is no art when one does something without intention.'' -- Duke Ellington.Without a doubt the King of Jazz would consider Ellington Heights--a sleek and stylish gem--a superb work of art. Nestled in the sun-kissed upper canyon of Silverleaf, an exclusive enclave in Scottsdale, Arizona, the design for this magnificent estate collected inspiration from the social, artistic and cultural dynamism of the Roaring Twenties era. Further, the design journey for this modern desert prairie-style home, included finding perfect harmony with its Sonoran surroundings.(see 'more' now) An absolute dream team has come together like an orchestra, each playing their individual parts to create beautiful music together in construction and home design. Start with award-winning architect CP Drewett, principal of Drewett Works, a leading firm that has in just the last three years amassed more than 20 distinguished national awards for architectural excellence and innovation in custom home design. Drewett is passionate about his work and emboldened by a challenge, which is what inspires him daily. The Drewett brand is synonymous with delivering design beyond the expected, and Drewett has been continuously recognized for his bold imagination. Claire Ownby, founder of leading design firm, Ownby Design, was charged with fulfilling the interior design vision for this magnificent estate, bringing beauty, energy and life into these dramatic spaces. Ownby leads one of the largest interior design teams, and she is widely recognized and respected for creating spaces that come together flawlessly. She wins awards every year nationally for her extraordinary work. The finest design of any custom estate only comes together under the guidance of a master builder, well versed in the complexity and craftsmanship of this caliber of a home. Gary Fries, founder of GF Fries Construction. Unlike most custom home builders, Fries is personally involved in every aspect of building a custom estate of extraordinary quality. He is well regarded as an expert in Silverleaf and DC Ranch, and has been chosen to build or renovate more than 50 homes in this community, based on his reputation for the highest integrity and craftsmanshiphis greatest passion. Together this team represents the best of the best, and a home of this caliber deserves nothing less. As construction begins, we await a masterpiece in the desert that will be available to own for a discerning homeowner with whom this level of team and quality resonates. To that end, every inch of the 17,000-plus square-foot home, plus 9,000 square feet of covered outdoor living space, was contemplated with discerning intention, understanding the exacting standards of the high-net worth individuals who will find Ellington Heights compelling. It's a modern estate yet perfectly at home in the Arizona desert. And, much like the desert itself, the design exudes understated simplicity, yet is significant in its detail. Envisioned with only the finest materials and finishes available, the homeowner can expect perfection at every turn. Open and airy to accommodate the natural light, the design celebrates the sweeping views of the valley below, including a unique, geographical saddle, offering stunning sunsets and city lights as the day progresses. With a nod to the era that included the high style of the Great Gatsby era, architect C.P. Drewett, imagined the three-story residence with entertaining in mind. Importantly, he considers the expansive, main floor great room, bar and dining area to be the soul of the house. The homeowner and guests will gather around several bars and in game areas. They will linger in indoor/outdoor spaces, around inspiring fire features, expansive landscaped patios and will enjoy the benefits of a 90-foot-long lap pool and integrated spa. Enthusiasts will also appreciate the outdoor golf simulator and practice-perfect putting green. The estate's materials palette includes a beautiful mix of ledgestone, limestone, hemlock and clay tile, providing a subtle yet distinctive contrast. The interior choices were directly inspired by the exterior. Expect a layered, yet monochromatic look incorporating a moody, sophisticated mix of bronzes, beiges and "minky" hues. Nine fireplaces are wrapped in natural stone. The chevron-patterned wood floors throughout Ellington Heights provide a further nod to the jazz-infused era of inspiration. Clean, elegant, and timeless define the home's primary kitchen. Exuding modern luxury, it's a vibrant space in which to indulge the senses, share experiences with friends and family and create lasting memories. Only the finest integrated appliances have been selected for the estate home including the exquisite craftsmanship of Eggersmann Kitchens in the primary kitchen, lounge and bar. Expect Wolf and SubZero amenities in the back-service kitchen, car bar, casita and exercise room. The future homeowner will find the spacious, primary suite a place of respite and luxury within the comfort of home. Fine details, tailor-made for Ellington Heights will refresh and inspire while the bespoke wardrobe area promises to elevate dressing to a special occasion. The home has many destination points, including the wellness center, where you'll find an indoor spa area complete with an infrared sauna, steam shower and cold plunge pool. The exercise room, located within a glass catwalk connecting the main home to a guest casita, provides outstanding views for the fitness-minded. The guests of Ellington Heights will appreciate the comfort, convenience and privacy provided by an expansive 1,324 square foot casita with its own garage. Among the seven-bedroom, ten-bath home's many distinctive features, is a below-level, auto-display garage with a car lift and turntable that can handle 20 vehicles. Providing an unexpected and pleasant surprise, the subterranean showroom offers an extraordinary view of the upper-level pool through glass. Infused with history, yet thoroughly modern, this ICONIC estate home is a desert gem to be treasured. The Ellington Heights estate is located within Silverleaf, an exclusive 2,000-acre community in the heart of North Scottsdale. With easy access to all the Valley of the Sun has to offer, yet tucked into the canyons of the McDowell Mountains and surrounded by the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, the location offers privacy paired with a compelling lifestyle. The private club features a Tom Weiskopf designed, 18-hole championship golf course that winds along 7,322 yards of inspiring terrain. The 50,000 square-foot Rural Mediterranean-style Silverleaf Clubhouse is highlighted by world class spa facilities, resort and lap pools, fully appointed men's and women's locker rooms, as well as fine and casual dining. Silverleaf is part of the renowned DC Ranch community, encompassing 8,300 acres with more than 4,600 acres dedicated to open space highlighted by unequalled natural desert beauty and breathtaking mountain, golf and city light views.

The Bacon House at Desert Mountain is a stunning classically modern 9,860 square foot home, designed by Master of the Southwest Architectural Designer Bob Bacon. This south-facing, five-bedroom, open plan home and gallery will be built in Desert Mountain, a secure, gated, private club and recreation-oriented master planned community in Scottsdale, Arizona. The capstone of a storied career, Bacon has created a true masterpiece of livable architectural art destined to be one of the finest homes anywhere; replete with the most advanced technology (including being solar powered) and 5,550 SF of climate-controlled collector's galleries for the safe display of prized possessions such as automobiles, art, or sculpture. A Bacon curated collection of furnishings is also available separately. Desert Mountain is an 8,200 acre, mature luxury community in the spectacular High Sonoran Desert with elevations ranging up to nearly 5,000 feet. On the south-facing slopes of the Continental Mountain range in north Scottsdale, Desert Mountain overlooks Phoenix, Scottsdale and the entire Valley of the Sun. Membership is optional in the community's private club, known as The Desert Mountain Club. Among many other amenities (outlined below), Club members enjoy the private use of seven golf courses, seven clubhouses, and nine dining venues. The Bacon House at Desert Mountain offers long-range, panoramic views of hundreds of square miles of fabulous Arizona scenery, including famed "Pinnacle Peak" and the McDowell Mountains to the southeast. In addition to a western sky-full of Arizona sunsets and several layered mountain ranges to the southwest, a carpet of city lights sparkles across the valley floor at night. Homes have been completed on all lots adjacent to The Bacon House at Desert Mountain, so there is no risk of the views from this home changing in the future. The Bacon House at Desert Mountain will be built after a buyer is found for it on lot # 107 in the Village in Desert Mountain known as "The Saguaro Forest", named after its abundance of naturally occurring giant Saguaro cacti...38 of which are on this lot. All the Villages in Desert Mountain are special, but the Saguaro Forest is physically the largest with over 300 homesites and boasts the greatest concentration of Desert Mountain's most expensive homes. Individual owners in Desert Mountain have invested as much as $38,000,000 in homes designed and built for their own use. The buyer of The Bacon House at Desert Mountain can take comfort knowing that they will be living in one of America's most exceptional neighborhoods. The main floor of The Bacon House at Desert Mountain is located 3,201.5' above sea level, about 2,000' above the valley floor where nighttime temperatures are typically 15 to 20 degrees cooler than what is recorded at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, affording a comfortable year 'round climate. The home's solar orientation and solar-specific design further ensures comfortable outdoor living even in the height of summer when the sun is much higher in the sky and goes down much further to the north. The home's southern exposure is by far the most favored orientation in Desert Mountain, not only because it is the direction of the long-range views, but also because homes with southern exposures are sunnier, brighter and warmer in the winter than homes facing north. Bob calls the design an "Homage to Early Modernism" and describes it as a seminal accomplishment, achieving a balance of open, casual, and spacious modernity, with a welcoming, warm, and intimate ambiance... all superbly arranged to accommodate a variety of lifestyles and all manner of entertaining for a family or for a couple simply wishing to enjoy a quiet retreat immersed in art. The quality of design, coupled with the best of materials and construction quality, a lush desert setting, panoramic views, and convenient location will render The Bacon House at Desert Mountain a remarkable long-term value for its owner, an example of true "legacy" real estate sure to be enjoyed by generations of proud family members. Complete floor plans, as well as several PDFs about Bob Bacon and the home's design, including details on the Collector's Galleries (column-free space designed for all collectables, equipped for automobiles, motorcycles, and statuary) can be found in the Documents section. Design highlights include: the previously mentioned Collector's Gallery served by an inconspicuous 9'x 18' lift located in one of the two opposing two-car garages (which do not face the street and are each equipped with custom cabinetry); a carefully crafted progression of tantalizing views unfold as one approaches the home, highlighted by arrival through a beautiful Wrightian art glass entry. Other highlights include a central atrium with nine pivot doors; a large recreation room with wet bar and a 2,000 bottle wine room entered through yet another art glass door; a fabulous second master suite with its own laundry, kitchen and private patio; stacked washers and dryers are in every bedroom suite; a multi-purpose office/craft/hobby room with great views both north and south; a fresh air "cigar porch"; a large air-conditioned storage room; glass block flooring on the main level admitting diffuse natural light into the core of the lower level, illuminating the galleries and back-lighting the living spaces; and a quiet commercial quality elevator to get back and forth between the two levels. The opportunity to be a member of the Desert Mountain Club is a significant part of the attraction of living in Desert Mountain for most property owners. The Club is the emotional, physical, and social "core" of the community. In addition to the Club's golf assets, which include six eighteen-hole championship Jack Nicklaus Signature courses; a single eighteen-hole, all-par-3 course (rated for handicap purposes); four practice ranges; and a high-tech golf performance center, there is a hugely popular twenty-mile long private trail system reaching an altitude of 4,890' available to all residents (hike, bike, run, or ride a horse). The trailhead is about a five-minute drive from The Bacon House at Desert Mountain. The center of activity at the Club is the Sonoran Clubhouse, a remarkable swim (three heated pools), tennis (nine courts, including one grass, five Har-Tru, and three cushioned surface hard courts), pickleball (six courts), bocce (two courts), croquet (two courts), fitness (a large, fitness center with a range of classes and private trainers), and spa facility, plus a restaurant. Very popular programs including sports instruction are also offered for children and grandchildren. The Sonoran Clubhouse enjoyed a $12,000,000 renovation completed in 2016, before the bocce, croquet, and pickleball courts were added the next year. It is now perhaps the premier facility of its type in the entire Southwest. The Bacon House at Desert Mountain will be about a five-minute drive to the Sonoran Clubhouse, and a 550-yard walk to the Chiricahua clubhouse, featuring Constantino's, the Club's signature restaurant, serving fine northern Italian cuisine in an elegant setting with eighty-mile views. Constantino's and the rest of the Club's dining venues offer a wide variety of food, wine, and atmospheres. Jackets and ties are not required! A tremendous range of social activities are also available. The Club's membership is catered to relentlessly by an attentive Club staff and Concierge, providing unparalleled service. In a word, the place is "phenomenal". So, Club membership is likely to be of great interest to the owner of The Bacon House at Desert Mountain. A wait list may apply for all categories of Desert Mountain Club memberships, after a required thirty-day long application and approval process. Contact the Club with questions and prior to writing a purchase contract. Desert Mountain is a place of surpassing service, amenities, and scenic beauty which has attracted full-and part-time residents from all over the world, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe and more. Another attraction is strikingly low real estate taxes compared to many parts of the country, particularly the Northeast, Midwest, and California. For example, 2019 taxes on the closest comparable home (7,545 square feet, sold in May of 2019 for $9,300,000) were just $19,810. The weather is famously sunny, and our risk of natural disasters is extremely low. Being higher and somewhat removed from the city means the stars are bright at night and the air is crystal clear. Desert Mountain's Front Gate is normally about a forty-minute drive north from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, and about a twenty-one-minute drive to the main private jet terminal at Scottsdale Airport (Signature Flight Support). Day-to-day shopping needs for Desert Mountain owners are conveniently met within about a ten-minute drive to the merchants in the nearby towns of Carefree and Cave Creek. There are approximately 69 restaurants and bars within about sixteen minutes' drive of the Main Gate. Otherwise, the Phoenix/Scottsdale area is famous for world-class shopping and art galleries, major league and collegiate sports (including baseball Spring Training and the Waste Management Phoenix Golf Open), terrific air service, and a wide variety of cultural attractions and special events (huge car auctions in January and February horse shows among them). Desert Mountain is within two and a half hours of normally excellent snow skiing in Flagstaff. Its location in the southwestern part of the United States affords easy access to the entire American West, with especially easy access to San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, and a plethora of unbelievably beautiful places in Southern Utah. "Paradise" does not overstate it. Against this backdrop of privacy, service, beauty and recreation, The Bacon House at Desert Mountain is truly the opportunity of a lifetime for some fortunate family. We welcome the opportunity to meet interested and qualified parties to help them appreciate the many engineering, technological, and subtle design details of the home too numerous to mention here...and we would be pleased to personally introduce the community, the Club, and the area! In the meantime, enjoy the many photographs, renderings, videos, and slide shows, as well as the web links to further information on the Desert Mountain Club.

This estate is a beautiful expression of ranch hacienda-style architecture. Designed by acclaimed architect John Sather of Swaback Partners, it was built with the highest quality materials and workmanship, and every room reflects extraordinary attention to detail. Nestled on six acres on the side of the McDowell Mountains - and backing onto a nature preserve - the property is truly a mountainside sanctuary that offers both privacy and an organic connection to the Sonoran Desert. The entrance speaks volumes about what's inside. The imposing arched front door with seeded-glass panels was custom crafted of reclaimed materials by La Puerta of Santa Fe, and the two-story entryway features a commanding chandelier fabricated by the trade-only designer Paul Ferrante. Must see MOTION VIDEO & The hardwood floors in the house are made of distressed hickory, and they perfectly compliment the artisanal plasterwork on the walls. Imported from Italy, the Albertini windows and glass-paneled doors, with their rich burnt-pine finish, are another strong design element. Tucson-based Taber & Co. made the bespoke in-wall mesquite cabinets in the living room, and the custom interior doors are also solid mesquite. Attention to detail is found throughout. The twin custom granite sinks in the kitchen feature integrated drain boards chiseled into the countertop  no dish racks needed. To reduce back strain when rolling dough, chopping vegetables, or doing other prep work, the center island was set at an above-standard 42" height. Electric outlets throughout the house were faux painted to match the surrounding walls and backsplashes. The three decorative panels on each interior door were deliberately sized so that the door lever is perfectly centered on the door rail. And the massive living room fireplace surround was entirely assembled from book-matched marble slabs, to stunning effect. Many of the rooms are worthy of special mention. Befitting a movie producer who wants to experience films in the best possible way, the 10-seat tiered theater is equipped with state-of-the-art projection and sound systems designed by Shen Milsom & Wilke, a world-class engineering firm serviced locally by Jim Miller of Desert Sound and Security. Next to the theater on the lower level is a 2,000-bottle wine cellar, whose rustic stone walls help maintain ideal temperature and humidity levels for long-term storage. Also on the "play" level is a game room that can accommodate all sorts of toys, which currently include a pool table, juke box, Skee-Ball alley, Harley-themed pinball machine and poker table. The spacious Primary Suite was designed to achieve just the right balance between privacy and togetherness. The suite has a common bedroom but completely separate dual bathrooms and dual closets. The suite also includes a room for luggage storage and a private patio with a fireplace and whirlpool. Located in a stand-alone structure a little further up the mountain, the Spa is another noteworthy space. On one side is a fully equipped exercise room with wall-to-wall French doors and transom windows that wash the room with light and offer lovely views of a desert garden. On the other side is an intimate massage room with an exquisite domed mosaic ceiling. How many homes have an ADA-compliant bedroom suite? This one does. All of the light switches are set at ADA height, the bathroom vanity is ADA accessible, and there are grab bars at the commode and in the shower. A commercial-grade elevator serves all three floors and is also ADA-compliant. The exterior spaces are equally impressive. Berghoff Design Group did the landscaping, which features a virtual arboretum of mature, thriving ironwood, palo verde, mesquite, and Texas ebony trees, all native to the Desert Southwest. These trees form a natural canopy and add to the overall sense of privacy which characterizes this property. The fountains are genuine antiques, and an inviting bougainvillea-lined walkway made from reclaimed stone leads to the main entrance. The pool deck has been the center of numerous successful fundraisers and memorable events. When the setting sun casts its magical glow on the McDowell Mountains, it's hard not to be in a special frame of mind. Before moving to Arizona, the owners had lived in a 60-story condo in Manhattan. The apartment was contemporary in style, with white walls, blond wood floors and black lacquer accents  a long way from the ranch hacienda look. As the owners began to view life in NYC from a glass-half-empty perspective - as their daughter was about to enter middle school - Scottsdale was at the top of their list of possible destinations. They knew the area well, having vacationed at the Phoenician Resort for many years. With its modern infrastructure, sunny and dry climate, high-end shops, good restaurants and even a branch of the Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale seemed like the idea choice. When the owners moved here, they fully embraced Spanish-Style architecture. It was fun to work with a completely different set of materials and colors, and they really got into the project, which took more than three years to complete. In the end, they had realized their vision. It will always be their dream house.
