Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is listing the property found at 10711 E. Fernwood Lane in Scottsdale for $2.995 million.
Representatives at Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty say the home is designed with world-renowned architect Bing Hu in mind. Mr. Hu is one of the most sought-after, award-winning architects around the world with completed over 300 projects at a combined construction value of over $10 billion, according to a press release.
A graduate of Taliesin West — Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural school — in Scottsdale, Mr. Hu is well-known for continuing to evolve and bring a unique style and flair to every property.
“While this house was designed nearly 30 years ago, it stands as a testament to the timelessness of organic architecture,” Mr. Hu said in a prepared statement.
“Taking the principles I learned from my time as an apprentice at Taliesin, I designed this house with modern simplicity in mind. The house combines classicism and modernity, with clean lines and a material palette that fits the surrounding desert landscape. The pitched roof form creates visual interest in the interior spaces and is complemented by deep covered porches that provide necessary protection from the scorching desert sun. The reimagined interiors elevate the home to provide luxurious finishes while still allowing the original architecture to shine.”
The home is owned and remodeled by Jeffrey and Roger Florentine; Jeffrey is the owner of JSF Design Inc, which specializes in luxury hotel interiors, luxury custom home interiors, and luxury home remodeling.
Mr. Florentine says he sets out for one-of-a-kind spaces.
“Designing is the gathering of different elements that tell a story specifically tailored to the home,” he said. “They are to be enjoyed for years to come — relevant, but timeless in a way that captures the soul.”
This contemporary home is situated in the coveted community of Desert Mountain in north Scottsdale.
The 2,850-square-foot, 3 bed and 3.5 bath, one-level home is designed to maximize both space and light with the use of natural materials such as stone, steel and glass. The plumbing in the bathrooms and showers are also custom made and brass plated, further exemplifying the thoroughly bespoke luxury of this home.
Kathleen Benoit of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty contends the property is the epitome of luxury.
“This visionary team took the home to the next level and beyond,” she said.
Karen Baldwin and Bee Francis — both with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty — say the property offers unique features not found anywhere else.
