This 1977 custom-built modern home on FEE LAND, has remained in the ownership of the original family since new and retains both its original character and reflects modern improvements. Built for a Chicago couple as their winter home, this light and bright home was way ahead of its time, bridging the Late Mid-Century period with the incoming Desert Modern style. The owners engaged their Chicago designer, Bruce Gregga, who finished the interiors so exquisitely that the home was published in Architectural Digest in December 1980. The exterior entry loggia is hidden behind glass privacy doors that when opened, reveal a covered walkway with circular roof cutouts that flood the area with light and leads to the pivoting clear glass front door. Beyond that you will find yourself in a classically laid out arrangement of rooms with generous dimensions, volume ceilings, light-reflecting white walls and an abundance of sliding glass doors to the various patios and pool yard. This sophisticated home has sightlines that are clear from entry to the outside, revealing the Mid-Century ethic of "inside/out". The living/dining room (Great Room) will have you feeling like you've been invited to entertain in one of the finest art galleries in the world, while the adjacent kitchen with dining area maintains its privacy. The primary suite is sufficiently large to accommodate a sitting area (or as currently shown, a home office) and opens to the pool/spa yard and outdoor shower. The ensuite bathroom compliment is truly executive style with two large modernized walk-in closets. The guest room, with ensuite bath, is also generous in proportions and has a similar closet design. The third suite is separated for privacy and offers a private bath, finished closet, and its own charms. The grounds are walled and private, with landscape designed by renowned architect Marcello Villano and offer various vignettes for outdoor living. There is a 2 car garage, a leased solar panel system, and the comfort of knowing you own the land. Throughout its 45-plus years, this home has been lovingly maintained and sympathetically upgraded by its two generations of family ownership and you will be hard pressed to find a finer and more architecturally consistent offering in the Indian Canyons.
