The Mesquite House is a Modern Western Ranch residence created by the acclaimed designer, Bob Bacon*. Located on 1.6 acres of lush, high Sonoran Desert in the boutique, gated eight-home Windmill-Bacon Signature Neighborhood, we are just east of The Boulders in north Scottsdale. An important note is that the home abuts 1/2 acre of heavily vegetated ''free'' HOA land to the west, providing even more space and privacy. This to-be-built 4000 square foot, SW-facing, home is offered with very nice fittings, appliances and finishes at $1.95M, with numerous opportunities to customize the property to your specific needs. Occupancy of the home is expected 11-13 months after the beginning of construction. The home illustrated is one of four different floor plans to choose from. Some of your options are: - A 900 square foot detached full Casita with one bedroom, kitchen facilities and a large living room. - A variety of interior finishes ranging from quite modern to traditional southwestern to whatever you and our interiors designer can imagine. - A tandem depth two bay garage with room for lifts. - Water feature along the entry walkway. - A spa off the master bedroom. - A stacked washer & dryer in the master bedroom - Design-your-own outdoor kitchen and BBQ area. We love the custom West-of Memphis gas, wood, charcoal BBQ/smoker/pizza ovens which heat to 1100 degrees in 5 minutes. - A two-way masonry fireplace between the outdoor living area and the pool. - A separate automotive showroom/barn for up to 12 vehicles, or more with lifts for the most passionate collector. Windmill has a very special and convenient location, less than five minutes from the center of the charming village of Carefree, with its art galleries, shopping and fine dining and just a couple of minutes more to the unique old 1875 mining and cowboy town of Cave Creek. So, unlike other north Scottsdale developments, Windmill is close to real, working, vibrant towns with compelling histories, rather than just a brand-new shopping area. With lots averaging two acres, Windmill stands in contrast to other exclusive, gated north Scottsdale neighborhoods where lots typically average just one acre. Why live in the land of wide-open spaces in a big house on a small piece of land? Each of the eight Windmill homes is a unique custom design, specifically reflecting the views and character of its site, carefully oriented to take advantage of the sun and mountain views, while achieving a carefully crafted combination of spaciousness and personal privacy. In Bob Bacon's words, "Windmill's character reflects the practical and casual ranch homes found throughout the west before design was influenced by fashion. Romantic and unpretentious in character, they are genuine American homes ????? timeless products of a simple, practical way of life. The Windmill neighborhood is offered to create long term, enduring value through the art of fine design and exceptional real estate." *Bob Bacon, honored as a "Master of the Southwest" in Phoenix Home and Garden magazine, has designed every aspect of the eight home Windmill neighborhood, from the sinuous curve of the street, to the land use, to the individual homes. Bob's other works include the Boulders Resort, the Scottsdale Princess and much more including over 200 luxury homes. Windmill is Bob's personal vision of fine living nestled in the Arizona Desert.
