Tucked off a winding road in the Arizona desert is a spectacular vintage home designed by Bennie Gonzalez, who is widely considered to be one of the masters of Southwest modernism. Though a major Phoenix-bound highway is nearby, the home feels worlds away from any hustle and bustle.
As you approach the entrance, you're struck by how well the place mimics the stunning landscape, and this harmony was intentional. Gonzalez's homes are to known to reflect their surroundings, and he selected building materials that felt authentic to the region. This sprawling property employs handmade blocks and tiles, along with natural flagstone.
However, the home's most incredible feature might be the array of arched windows, which perfectly frame the breathtaking views. And while an ordinary home might be lucky to have one picture window, these curvy beauties are everywhere. They line the living room, open up the delightfully retro kitchen, and even frame the front door.
Get ready to gasp:
Feeling oddly inspired to move to Arizona? This place is on the market for $460,000, and the listing notes that potential homeowners will enjoy views of both the desert and twinkling city lights — from literally every room (and a patio to boot!).
