Live in Harmony with the Desert in this Modern Mountain Retreat Without Ever Leaving the Heart of the City

Becky Bracken | October 10, 2019 | Home & Real Estate


Wide open spaces are the hallmark of this currently on-the-market modern estate (4102 E. Mission Lane) perfectly positioned to take advantage of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve’s trails and views while sitting pretty in the heart of the city. Stylish from every angle and a lovely compromise between luxury and livability, the four-bedroom, five-bathroom 5,600-square-foot home is notable from a distance, thanks to the sweeping rooftop finishing in an elegant peak, similar to the mountains hovering in the distance. It was built in 2000 by well-known Paradise Valley and Scottsdale fine custom home developer John Schultz. Filled with clean lines and tasty extras like a sauna, outdoor shower and jaw-dropping entertaining spaces on the second floor—including a full sit-down bar and roomy balcony with views in every direction—the home puts the desert mountains on full display with spectacular results. Built to work for both formal large-scale entertaining and quiet evenings at home, the 1.3-acre property includes the main house, pool, large auto court and plenty of room to expand. $2.4 million, Logan Lewis, The Sandra Baldwin Team, Launch Real Estate,, 602.390.3122,
