A stunning contemporary architectural coup, unlike anything in Tucson and situated on 3.53 very private acres in vibrant and verdant Northeast Tucson, is now available to be viewed by discerning home buyers. On a hill overlooking the entire verdant Tanque Verde Valley and all of the mountain ranges in the area, privately and elegantly fenced and gated, built with the most gorgeous high-end materials and creative design, this is home for an appreciator of contemporary art forms. As befits a dramatic home created for a genius engineer, there are almost no ''square'' rooms...It's all about angles everywhere. Fabulous architecture and engineering! This contemporary design incorporates the natural slope of the site with passive solar strategies to minimize heat loss/gain. Thermal mass walls strategically placed throughout the house help to reduce large temperature swings indoors while also serving as guides to divide living spaces. Large window walls are shaded in the summer, but in the winter allow warmth to enter the house to reduce heating costs. The term "walls of windows" is a cliché for a home with views from every space in the home. Tall walls, some up to approximately 18 feet, are a perfect backdrop for a significant contemporary art collection. Sitting in the main salon with its high ceilings and enjoying views over the glossy black floors and on to the smooth-as-glass negative edge pool and beyond is seamless, almost surreal. Multiple levels blend together exquisitely, an amazingly creative combination of spaces. Vivid accent walls of orange and yellow balance out whites, greys and black shades, with softly shaded stainless steel and handsome wood accents. High end materials in the home include rich woods, porcelain and handsome wide plank wood flooring, solid wood 8' doors with stainless insets, Thermafoil cabinetry finishes, high gloss countertops and the best of contemporary bathroom design. An entrance through the distinctive private gate leads to a large entry pavilion with parking for a crowd, accented by a stunning and unique multi-level fountain and a view of the overflow from the negative-edge pool above. and thence to a broad entry dominated by a dramatically oversized pivot door. Enter into the large foyer and on to the salon, uniquely shaped, with room for multiple seating areas and with feasts for the eyes everywhere. A totally unique and dramatic free-standing fireplace, a tall multi-level fountain, views in every direction and especially over the negative edge pool, uniquely shaped art niches for sculpture, captivate one's attention. Not your cookie-cutter living room but like no other ever created...as is the fabulous kitchen and its welcoming bar with a backdrop of translucent materials gently lit from behind. The kitchen encompasses the finest in appliances, of course....an 8-burner gas Viking stove with griddle and indoor grill and double ovens, built-in deep fryer, kitchen Aid dishwasher and two smaller dishwashing drawers, a glass-front beverage refrigerator, two Kitchen Aid refrigerated drawers, liquor cabinet, extra-wide refrigerator and freezer, stunning sink faucets...no trick was missed! Gorgeous back splashes of stainless steel subway tiles and modern mosaic tiles, a huge island with bar sink and hidden pop-up tower of plugs for more appliances, tons of sleek counter space, the best of the best. Adjacent is a cozy family room/den and an open dining space, and step outside to the wide and broad open air veranda with more dining space, relaxation space and steps down to the outdoor kitchen and pool area. And, of course, those views over the entire Valley and down to Mexico. That outdoor kitchen is equipped with a huge and unused 48" gas grill, two separate burners, sink and refrigerator set in handsome grey granite, with room for dining and relaxing in and around the gorgeous pool with its' huge beach landing. And take a trip up to the rooftop deck to enjoy the 360* views. Back inside, off of the living room, an elegant office for two includes double built-in credenzas and plenty of desk space. Down the broad hallway is the master suite, with more stunning angles and a gorgeous fireplace surrounded by glossy black porcelain, and a huge bath area with tub, glass walled shower and huge double closets with room for all of the accessories for upscale attire. Two generously sized guest rooms are adjacent, with en-suite baths. A third guest room is designed to have its own outside entrance through another gorgeous pavilion. Down a half-stairway is a gym and media room, with its own pantry for snacks, and another powder room. A garage in the main home holds three vehicles, while a separate building has space for three additional vehicles. It's all built to be pass
