If you are anything like us, you’ll need a minute to pick your jaw up off the floor after one look at this Paradise Valley dream home. We’ll wait … but the listing won’t. It’s currently priced at $10.49 million and will be scooped up faster than you think, as it comes from a pedigree of architectural talent.

According to the property description, the Brent Kendle-designed masterpiece, “brings a new level of contemporary artistry to this thoughtfully redesigned Paradise Valley Estate.” We couldn’t agree more. Capturing a timeless, understated elegance with a design that was, “not created for the trend of the moment but rather for to enjoy,” we learn that the impressive estate was inspired by none other than Frank Lloyd Wright.

There’s so much to love it’s hard to know where to begin, but here goes. The 12,000-plus-square-foot desert jewel is located at the base of Mummy Mountain on over two acres of pristine Arizona landscape. Stunning panoramic views, an abundance of natural light, and luxurious architectural details create one exquisitely modern retreat that leaves no stone unturned.

Highlights include a main house with four gracious bedrooms, four spa-like bathrooms, three powder rooms, a 250-plus-bottle wine room, dramatic theater lounge, and six-car collector’s garage. But that’s not all! There is a separate guest house connected by a breezeway with two bedrooms, two baths, an exercise studio, spa-quality locker room, steam room and dry sauna. Did we mention the tennis court? Even the fireplaces get the royal treatment!

“Eight fireplaces highlighted with blackened steel interiors, tumbled glass, masonry spheres of varying sizes, and three-dimensional limestone accentuate comfortable seating areas throughout the property,” reads the description.

The agents say it “will attract the most discriminating buyer who appreciates the finest materials, finishes and architecture in the quality of the soft-contemporary and modern design.”

Are you due for a Paradise Valley escape? What better way to unwind than in a turn-key masterpiece built to inspire? We are willing to bet this idyllic home away from home goes fast. The Paradise Valley gem is currently co-listed for $10.49 million by Kirsten Johnson and Denise Pruitt of Arizona Best Real Estate.
