Property Description

Originally built in 1979 for his own family, artist and architect Bill Tull selected this unique three-acre site to create this ''sculpture for the desert.'' Tull who died in 2000 was a celebrated visionary who built in the Pueblo adobe style. He created an adobe brick mixed with an asphalt emulsion as opposed to straw to create structural stability. Homes designed by Tull are strong, romantic, and timeless. 8161 North 51st Place embodies all of the authentic elements of the original home including vigas and latillas, sculptural fireplaces, and thick, smooth walls with rounded corners. However, this home has been substantially rebuilt and modernized for today's living. In 2018, the current homeowners worked with Greg Hunt, David Michael Miller, and Berghoff Design to reimagine the... living spaces both inside and out. The result is a light-filled desert modern home with new electrical systems, lighting, and plumbing. All bathrooms were remodeled as was the spectacular Bulthaup kitchen. The master suite was expanded and includes a very large and well-designed his/her's closet. An additional two car garage was added to complement the existing three car garage. Other additions include, a large laundry room, substantial air-conditioned storage, a dog kennel, and a wine room accommodating well over 2,000 bottle wine storage. Indigenous landscaping includes all varieties of cacti, succulents, native desert trees and flowering shrubbery. The entire yard watering system was overhauled as was all of the landscape lighting. A new 63' pool was added creating a dramatic backyard scene in addition to providing a wonderful place to swim laps in total privacy. There are three separate structures on the property including the main house, the pool house/casita, and the gym and guest casita building. Privately gated, this property is secure and secluded; close to everything Paradise Valley has to offer, yet so quiet and charming, it feels as if it is miles from the nearest neighbor.
