Jason and I saw this house as we were driving around this weekend. I have always been entranced by homes built into the sides of the mountains that encompass Phoenix. When I was a kid and we would drive by Camelback Mountain, I would gaze at the mansions dotted among the boulders and saguaros and wonder about how they were built and where the road was to get up to their driveways. I used to dream about someday living up there and looking down on the valley.
This house had a gorgeous view of wildflowers and desertscape. It looked huge and well maintained. We especially loved the long wraparound porch in front and the part toward the back left with the wall and roof of windows. The pretty mocha color of the exterior didn’t hurt either.
