Mountainside Home Features 2,000 Feet of Covered Patios

This stunning mountainside home in Phoenix includes 2,000 square feet of covered patios that extend along three sides of the home, offering panoramic views and outdoor access to almost every room in the house. The renovation of this home removed additive Spanish revival design features which obstructed the views and detracted from the home's style. A second story addition cantilevered over the property added an extra bedroom while preserving lower-level outdoor living space.

An elegant gate at the entrance to the covered walkway provides extra security for the homeowners without detracting from the style of the home.
