Luxury Minimalist Custom-Designed Home in Arizona by The Construction Zone

This stunning home by The Construction Zone will take your breath away with its magnificent views of the Valley’s most ICONIC mountains.

Situated in a natural dip atop Phoenix Mountains Preserve is a private, minimalist custom-designed  home that should be named Top of the World. With crystal-clear views of Camelback Mountain and the sparkling city lights below, it’s easy to fall in love with this 8,000-square-foot home.

The design-build team at The Construction Zone created this stunning structure. While this home may seem to appease the aesthetic of many, it is ultimately a reflection of the owners’ dreams. With customization at the forefront of the design, Andy Byrnes, founder of The Construction Zone, produced a home that fit every need and desire the owners had in mind.

“This home was very tailored to the client,” Byrnes says. “One of the owners had a very strong sense of what he wanted the palette to be. He had his flooring picked out for years, and he had the stone for the walls in mind before we started, so we really sourced based on the palette that he had in his mind. He had a very strong opinion about millwork and cabinetry finishes, so we worked very closely with him on the interior design aspect of the home. We really worked hard to make the architecture complement the way the owners live.” 

When you drive up the steep mountainside road and arrive at the residence—a beautiful home of glass and steel—you can’t help but fall under the spell of the Phoenix city skyline, to which you have 360-degree access. 

While this home may seem to appease the aesthetic of many, it is ultimately a reflection of the owners' dreams.

The minimalist home design hosts an open floor plan. As you enter the home, the high-ceilinged, glass-surrounded foyer entices you to walk up the handcrafted steel and glass staircase that emerges from a stone statement wall. You are immediately engulfed with panoramic views of the Valley through the floor-to-ceiling glass sliding windows that seamlessly blend the kitchen, living space and primary bedroom with the stone terrace that overlooks the southern part of Scottsdale and Phoenix.

The Construction Zone built the primary level of the home to have an open floor plan, allowing all the rooms to flow together; if more privacy or sun protection is preferred, custom-designed sliding frosted-glass doors or louvered metal panel doors can emerge from within the walls of the home. 

With two private bathrooms and massive custom-designed walk-in closets accompanying the primary bedroom, space is not an issue at this estate. The floating vanities crafted by AK Studio contribute to the home’s sleek aesthetic

Every aspect of this house is elevated to epitomize luxury, from top-tier appliances like Sub-Zero, Bosch, and Gaggenau to elegant luxury millwork from Boffi and AK Studio. The estate also has the latest smart home technology from Crestron. The wood floors are velvety to the feet, and the Neolith stone tiles reflect modern elegance.

The home is not only beautiful in its design but also in its attention to detail in the fit and finish of the construction. The Construction Zone manufactured the custom windows, millwork and steel, adhering to a virtually seamless process from design to installation.  

One major challenge Byrnes and his team at The Construction Zone faced was transporting materials up the daunting mountain.

“Access to the site was very difficult. I had a staff member who spent more than 1,200 hours driving a 4×4 up and down the hill transporting equipment and workmen,” Byrnes recalls. “Another major challenge was getting large materials around the bend of the mountain. We had to use a crane to move materials around that bend.” 

Despite the challenge, The Construction Zone persevered and created a remarkable landmark that is a testament to modernity and luxury. 

“The relationship of the spaces of the home to the view, I think, is what makes this home very special,” Byrnes says. “ Even though it is a very fancy home, I would say it is also modest. It’s not ostentatious. It’s an expensive house, don’t get me wrong, but there’s not a lot of excess, and that is something I really like about it.”

This custom-designed house is everything a minimalist enthusiast could want. If it has captured your heart and attention as it has ours, please contact Shawna Glazier, as it is on the market and ready for a new owner to call it home.
