Polished Urban Oasis with Spectacular Desert Views in Arizona

A home should feel like a natural part of the landscape it is set in. The most beautiful residences have unique design solutions that let them stand out from the crowd. Of course, not every home has the opportunity to become a natural extension of the scenery around it. But Kendle Design Collaborative has ensured that the Desert Jewel Residence well and truly lives up to its name! This gorgeous contemporary home in Paradise Valley gleefully embraces the picturesque landscape it sits in, as a striking natural rock formation welcomes guests at the entrance.

A curated pathway meanders through this setting and leads to the entrance of the home which is neatly tucked behind the natural rock feature. Clean, straight lines, contemporary finishes and warm lighting paint a picture of modernity on the outside. Once you step in, this appeal of modern luxury is taken to a whole different level. The open-plan living area with glass walls all around seems to completely blur traditional lines between the interior and the outdoors. A captivating, dark stone fireplace delineates the kitchen and dining area from the outdoor hangout.
