This custom residence was designed for a large, blended family.

Perched high on Camelback Mountain’s southern face, this masterful re-imagining of a 1950s home has respectful nods to its history with modern conveniences, amenities and materials.

After a fire destroyed much of the original structure, this house was reborn and rose like a phoenix to celebrate its Sonoran Desert location.

Many recent garden tour guests were eager for a peek inside this Biltmore-area home.

Incorporating elements of Mission, Spanish Colonial and Santa Fe styles, this classic North Scottsdale home embodies a warm, comfortable and livable escape for its owners.

Light, bright, sleek and streamlined, this open-concept home is a study in contemporary chic.

The result of a lifetime of travel, discovery, exploration and collecting, this eclectic Biltmore Estates bungalow shows how harmony—and creativity—come from the heart.

The desert landscape that surrounds this contemporary home is a source of pride for the homeowner, who did much of the design and planting himself.

The garden spaces of this residence speak a language of color, texture, variety—and serenity.
