    Description

    The Bacon House at Desert Mountain is an absolutely striking 9,860 square foot, south-facing, five-bedroom, ''Great Room'' home designed by Master of the Southwest Architectural Designer Bob Bacon, to-be-built to the highest quality standards on a ''big view'' lot in Desert Mountain, a secure, gated, private club and recreation-oriented master planned community in Scottsdale, Arizona. Bacon was able to design the home without the typical outside direction of a developer or buyer and as a result, it is a true masterpiece of architectural art, destined to be the finest home of its type in Desert Mountain and one of the most distinctive homes in the country. An optional 5,000 square foot air-conditioned Auto Gallery is available (see the Documents for a description). (See More...)A complete collection of furnishings and housewares curated by Mr. Bacon is also available. Desert Mountain is an 8,200 acre, thirty-three-year-old 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 things (outlined below), club members enjoy the private use of seven golf courses, seven clubhouses, and nine dining venues. The Bacon House offers long-range, panoramic views of hundreds of square miles of fabulous Arizona scenery, including famed "Pinnacle Peak" in the McDowell Mountains to the southeast, a carpet of city lights to the south on the valley floor at night, nearby Lone and Black Mountains, several layered mountain ranges to the southwest, and of course, a sky-full of Arizona's famous sunsets. Homes for all the lots in the view shed of The Bacon House have been completed so there is no uncertainty about the views from this home. The Bacon House will be built on lot # 107 in a custom home Village in Desert Mountain known as the "Saguaro Forest", named for the abundance of naturally occurring ancient, giant Saguaro cacti...including 38 on this lot. All the Villages in Desert Mountain are special, but the Saguaro Forest is physically the largest with over 300 homesites and it has 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. For an investment of $13,000,000 (unfurnished), the buyer of The Bacon House at Desert Mountain can take great comfort knowing that, not only is their home not the "most expensive home on the block," but also that they own an exceptional example of timeless architectural art that should grow in value over time, and not diminish in value as is the fate of so many homes designed based on a 'current' fashion. The main floor of The Bacon House is 3,201.5' above sea level and about 2,000' above the valley floor, affording a comfortable year 'round climate. The home's solar orientation and solar specific design will make for pleasant outdoor experiences even in the height of summer, when the sun is going down much further to the north and nighttime temperatures are typically 15 to 20 degrees cooler than what is recorded and reported at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The home's southern exposure is by far the most favored orientation in Desert Mountain, not only because it is the direction in which the long-range views "live", but also because homes with south 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, are in the Documents section. Design highlights include: two, opposing two-car garages, barely visible from the street and equipped with custom cabinetry; a wonderful design that shows off more and more of the home's design "magic" as one gets closer and closer to the home, and then enters it, through a beautiful beveled glass door; a central atrium with operable windows; a large recreation room with wet bar and a 2,000 bottle wine storage room; a fabulous junior master suite; washers and dryers in all bathrooms; a multi-purpose "laundry/craft/office" room (with great views!); a fresh air "cigar porch"; a large air-conditioned storage room; glass block flooring on the main level to admit more light into the lower level, making it bright and cheerful; and an extra-large 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
