A divine desert home built into the boulders in Scottsdale, AZ, has hit the market for $3,315,000.
The four-bedroom, adobe-style abode is tucked away at The Boulders Resort and features actual boulders nestled inside its 6,629-square-foot interior.
“First of all, what makes the property so unique is its adobe construction designed by architect Bill Tull,” says listing agent Stacy Paluscio, of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. “There are not a lot of these properties. The other thing to note is its location in the estate section of The Boulders. It is elevated in the community and has a golf course that wraps around it.”
“At the entry, there are two huge boulders that have been incorporated into the design of the home, so you feel like you are really connected with the outdoors,” Paluscio noted. “It’s a beautiful way to bring the outdoors inside.”
Known as La Casa Sobre La Laguna (translated as “the house over the creek”), the property sits on an acre that offers mountain, golf course, and boulder views—plus some interesting wildlife.
“The property also has a nice connection with nature; it has an abundance of wildlife, including lizards, bobcats, and javelina,” Paluscio says, referring to the wild boar-type creatures. “It feels like you are in a nature preserve. If you are a wildlife lover, it’s a lot of fun.”
Another cool feature is the stream that runs under the house that can be viewed right through the floor.
“There is also a manmade desert stream that runs under the house,” Paluscio says. “You can look down from the walkway and den area, through these glass tiles on the floor, and see the bobcats hanging out underneath.”
The open floor plan boasts nine wood-burning fireplaces, oversized windows, and numerous outdoor entertaining areas.
Built in 1993, the spacious home features many modern amenities, including an updated kitchen with multiple ovens, a walk-in pantry, and breakfast bar.
A cozy dining area with a fireplace has direct access to an outdoor terrace.
The primary suite has arched doorways, exposed-beam ceilings, a fireplace, and is surrounded by glass windows to capture the stunning views. The are two full bathrooms, an exercise room, and office.
Outside, an infinity-edge pool, spa, or wraparound terrace would be ideal spots to soak in the spectacular Sonoran sunset. The property also features two private guesthouses and a four-car garage.
“The next buyer is probably going to be an aficionado of adobe homes and wants a home with unusual architecture while living with romance and artistry,” Paluscio predicts. “It will probably be used as a second or third home as well, but it could also be a primary residence. The Boulders draws avid golfers and outdoor enthusiasts and hikers who love to enjoy the outdoors.”
