Desert Courtyard House in Scottsdale, Arizona

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

When we think of buying a home in the desert, we’re often hit with the question, “Now why would anyone want to do that?” Who wants to live in that blistering heat, in the middle of nowhere? However, that was our outlook before seeing this stunning Desert Courtyard House.

Nestled in a rural area of the Sonoran Desert outside of Scottsdale, Arizona, this contemporary oasis was designed by the team at Wendell Burnette Architects. The crew strived to create a home that would not interrupt the flow of the desert, but rather look to be nothing more than a shadow among the sand and towering Saguaro cacti surrounding the property. Once you enter the home, all bets are off of it being inconspicuous are off. This place is immaculate from top to bottom, including those gorgeous floor to ceiling windows surrounding the central courtyard.
