This private residence is located on a 1.7-acre horse property in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Designed by the architectural firm The Ranch Mine, the home provides a peaceful space for the owners to retreat from city life. The house takes advantage of Arizona's climate by using solar power as well as natural lighting for the interior spaces. Overall, the building integrates with its surroundings with windows, openings, and a central courtyard that allow expansive views and access to the dessert.
