An additional feature at this elegant home is the wonderful presence of clerestory windows which bring in a flood of natural light and create a cheerful atmosphere. Materials such as native cut stone copper and western red cedar succeed in giving the beautiful residence a timeless appeal despite its more modern silhouette.

Then there is that incredible connectivity with nature which leaves you mesmerized as you enjoy the constantly changing sights and sounds outside. Bringing all this and a whole lot more to the table is the fascinating in Arizona deisgned by Kevin B Howard Architects.
