What could be more amazing than vacationing against the backdrop of majestic mountains and the Sonoran Desert? Then add in the beauty of a luxury vacation home whose architectural design was inspired by the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. You’ll find it all right here in Scottsdale, where modern tastes meet nature at her finest.
Let’s take a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Escape, featured in Holiday Rental’s lineup of luxury home rentals.
This Home’s Historic Background
An American architect, Wright was known for his clean designs and fresh elements, which created a smooth transition from the outdoors to the home’s interior with stone, wood, and plenty of windows. The Frank Lloyd Wright Escape in Scottsdale is the work of one of Wright’s prodigies and reflects the same symbiotic qualities of one of his classic designs. The history of the home extends beyond the design inspiration: it was also the location for JFK and Marilyn Monroe’s clandestine meetings.
Visitors to this home are struck by the 240-degree views from the 1000-foot, multi-level deck. From every vantage, you’ll look out and see Camelback Mountain, Mummy Mountain, and the city lights that glisten in Paradise Valley. The home is built next to the Paradise Valley Country Club’s golf course.
Let the Outside In
Large glass windows surround this house, which lend to the open-air, natural light feel you’ll find in every room. Stone walls throughout seamlessly meld with the mountainside against which this home is nestled.
Beautiful Master Bedroom Suite
This home features five bedrooms and five and a half baths for up to 10 guests to sleep here. The master bedroom with en-suite bath is a perfect retreat, with its own fireplace, sitting area, and desk. The bath features an oversized tub surrounded by stone, with a window that faces the mountain. The walk-in shower has dual shower heads and a bench. The other bedrooms are equally well-appointed and spacious.
Spacious Common Areas
There are plenty of comfortable places inside for everyone to gather, from a living room with a double-sided fireplace to a media room with a large-screen TV. If you or any of your guests know how to play a piano, you can entertain everyone with the baby grand.
Chef’s Envy Kitchen
There’s plenty of room to whip up gourmet meals for a crowd in the sleek kitchen. Stainless steel appliances, double ovens, an island featuring an extra-large sink, oversized gas range, and more are here for your culinary pleasure. With the open layout, you can easily visit with guests while you prep for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The Great Outdoors JUST GOT GREATER
The expansive deck is where you and your guests will want to congregate whenever possible. In addition to the natural views, a unique waterfall feature is embedded into the mountain, clearly a nod to a favorite element found in Wright’s designs. Take a dip in the refreshing pool. Circle around the fire pit for evening fun. Sunbathers will be in their glory with the full-length chaises topped with comfortable pads. The outdoor BBQ beckons grill fanatics to fire it up and char steaks, seafood, and other cookout fare. Sip coffee from the rooftop deck and watch as the sun rises over the mountains or enjoy a nightcap under the desert stars. The possibilities are endless.
Located Close to Everything
We call it an escape, but you’re not far from the action when you want to be there. Paradise Valley is not far from this abode, nor is Old Town Scottsdale with quaint shops, fine dining, and great nightlife. Hikers will find trails galore both in the surrounding mountains as well as at the nearby Echo Canyon Trail and Recreation Area. If indoor fun is what you seek, the Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West is close, as is OdySea Aquarium, which is located just across the 101. Golfers will find a course that’s perfect for their abilities in any direction they turn.
