Property Description

Nestled on a 1.6 acre pristine desert & mountain view lot in Carefree Arizona is a magical, never-been-on-market before Blaine Drake Architect home. As one of Frank Lloyd Wright's original apprentices, Drake perfectly captured the use of space, material & light in this iconic Mid-Century design. The walls of glass, corner reveals & colonnades show respect for the site & enhance the sweeping views. This 1965 home offers impeccable detailing such as original millwork, Terrazzo floors, exposed wood ceilings and beams which showcase his artistry. The juxtaposition of materials both soft and naturalistic, solid and timeless, blend effortlessly. For the MCM lover, this presents a 'once-in-a-lifetime' opportunity to obtain a pristine and unchanged example of Drake's signature design. MORE ... Carefree Arizona is a special place. This small community located at the far northeast area of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area is positioned between the mining town of Cave Creek, and what is now Scottsdale. Originally developed in the early 1960's, there are a few original architects of note that helped shape this charming town of less than 4000. This home is a perfect example of this stewardship. One can only imagine the natural beauty and stunning backdrop that this community provided to encapsulate this very special mid-century home. Designed and built in 1965 by one of Frank Lloyd Wright's original apprentices, Architect Blaine Drake. As stunning as the provenance is the fact that the house remains nearly completely original in shape and material. For the MCM lover this presents a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity to obtain a pristine and unchanged example of Drake's signature design. The classic "Arizona Tan" slump-block constructed home features materials and finishes of these Blake Designs. This was a highly productive & creative era for him, as is evidenced from his work. This home offers original millwork and details which include highly sought after Terrazzo Floors, floor to ceiling walls of glass, and exposed wood ceilings and beams. The juxtaposition of materials both soft and naturalistic, solid and timeless blend effortlessly. The appliances have been thoughtfully updated to reflect the original scale at the time. Located on an incredible 1.6 acre natural desert lot, the sweeping views to the north and east offer stunning vistas of the Continental Mountains.
