Designed by Architect Will Bruder, FAIA and built by original owner David Platt, the Platt Residence is a 2,283 sq ft unique, private modern desert oasis situated on 2.24 acres in North Phoenix, just minutes away from the 101 & I-17 near Norterra. Sourcing natural materials such as local desert stone, copper, glass and steel, Bruder made the ordinary extraordinary in this one-of-a-kind custom retreat in a quiet neighborhood on a maturely landscaped property. Reconstructing this masterpiece today would cost well over $300/SF, making this world class architecture within reach for the Bruder enthusiast. The current owner has been a wonderful steward of this incredible property and hopes to find someone who loves it as much as they. With many strategically placed architectural windows, the home is filled with an abundance of natural light. In order to keep the home energy efficient, an 11.34kwh Tesla solar system, connected with the APS grid, was installed June 2017 on the oversized pull-thru garage. The outdoor panoramic views through the floor-to-ceiling windows are worth boasting about. Double sets of French doors lead you to one of the 4 secluded patios each containing unique water features. Open the interior set French doors and listen to tranquil water-flowing while watching the birds bathe. Enjoy an outdoor shower or long bath in the over-sized, copper tub on the master bedroom patio. Never worry about running out of hot water with the tank-less water heater, and skin stays soft with a water softener system (salt/potassium) and fresh water well. View the 30' tall Saguaro cactus the home was built around, and Sonoran Preserve Mountains from the heated, resort-style pool, and Jacuzzi tub in the backyard. This over-sized parcel of land is zoned R-43 in the county of Maricopa and the zoning allows for one dwelling unit per acre, with a variety of rural residential uses including equine/horse boarding. Surrounded by the city of Phoenix the property is close to the action. The Happy Valley Road corridor is seeing one of the largest commercial and residential expansions in all of the Phoenix Metro area. With the recent purchase of the Shops at Norterra by YAM Properties, a real estate development company owned by GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons, many new stores and restaurants are minutes from home.
