Before you read about this incredible hillside red brick home, you should be aware of an interesting report: After years of research, a university professor has discovered that there is absolutely no scientific proof that life is serious. The current owners are definitely on board with this philosophy, and it influenced the entire design of the house. Located among the custom homes of Ahwatukee, this home exudes a playful personality. Here are some of the fun items incorporated into the residence. There's a pool with automatic pool cover, 4 outdoor patios(2 by the home, 2 by the pool area), full outdoor kitchen (see photos), secret room, and full wet bar! At about 4,500 square feet, the freshly painted home is located in the heart of Ahwatukee Custom Estates one of the most upscale of all the communities in the area on a quite cul-de-sac 2.5 acre preserve lot that has a country feel yet within the city complete with unobstructed views. The two-level layout has 5 oversized bedrooms(upstairs), 4.5 baths(2 jack/jill for the "kids" rooms), formal room, dining room, family room, and if a secret room has always been on your wish list, you're in luck! Just off the kitchen press a button to push open the bookcase and reveal your own secret lair perfect as a gun safe, wine storage, hideaway, let your imagination run! And to stage the takeover of a Fortune 500 company, there is a sprawling office on the lower level. Not only does the house rate a "10" on the fun and functional meter, the owners opted for some amazing quality items as the home was being built(and have kept it in good shape-most recently in May of 2018 installing brand NEW A/C system and a new pool filter. Most of the flooring is true hardwood and with the owners hailing from Boston opted to adorn the kids rooms with to mimic "Boston Garden". Some of the quality story here can only be told by the numbers. It took ~70,000 red bricks to entirely cover this house. The landscaping/backyard/pool set up is "xeriscape" style in the front and back with a a common theme governing: less maintenance so you can enjoy friends and family more! Imagine the following nighttime scenario. Load up some romantic music. You and your sweetie head down your private spiral stairs out to the pool with some floating candles and a couple of glasses of wine. Hey, when's the last time you went skinny dippin'? Ahh...totally relaxing. The home includes a 1,500 sq ft garage. Maybe it's a "guy" thing, but the garage is noteworthy. It is an oversized, SUV-swallowing triple+ garage that also includes additional space that is already set up for a workshop and tons of cabinets. The owner changed plans on acquiring a RV only after he built the massive garage out...so for their purposes they closed in the back area to store decorations but can easily be converted back for your own outdoor toys! Attention romantic couples. The home has yet another alluring and exotic quality: privacy. Not only are no drapes necessary for the back of the house(but it does have electronically controlled shades to keep afternoon sun out), all of the outdoor areas in back are private. The house can also be set up in case there are older relatives who will visit but can't deal with stairs. There is a room(was used a kids playroom then a billiards room) and full bath on the main level. If you have incurred enough work-related stress...if you have weathered enough corporate meetings to afford this...and if you are ready to start relaxing, then trust your impulse to act now. Remember, family memories last long after price is forgotten.
