This sophisticated Fountain Hills home is the result of a savvy renovation by an ASID Designer/Owner. With classic architecture and “good bones,” this 3322 sq. ft., solid block home sits on a high, acre lot in one of Fountain Hills’ premier neighborhoods. Beautifully updated in 2007 with well-appointed kitchen and baths, this luxury home is great for empty nesters who will also enjoy the 4th bedroom/office/guest quarters with BIG panoramic mountain views and separate entrance.
Everything about the home at 16223 E. Inca Drive says casual entertainment…from the large Great Room with its island kitchen and elaborate wet bar, to the gracious back yard with dramatic mountain views, diving pool, a variety of large patios and upper level viewing deck to maximize the mountain viewing experience!
The kitchen of 16223 E. Inca Drive is completed in a warm European style that
includes new cabinets with a 2-tone, profiled design. The appliances are top of the line KitchenAid, featuring a 2-drawer dishwater and full stainless cook stove. The granite topped island has a furniture finish and offers comfortable, great room seating for four. There is also a Formal Dining Room, a Breakfast Nook and a full granite wet bar with wine captain, glass fronted cabinetry and lots of casual seating.
Outdoors, there is ample room for patio furniture, outdoor dining and hours of pool-side lounging. The big mountain views are the focal centerpiece, yet the gardens are also a key part of the casual ambiance.
Fountain Hills offers a prime opportunity for quality renovations, with classic
architecture in 1980’s era, custom built homes. One of the key factors in these projects are the large, acre plus homesites with their mountain views of the Superstition, Goldfield and Mazatzal Mountains along with the big prize, Red Rock Mountain. These very special homes offer space, privacy, elegance and a casual southwestern elegance with their Frank Lloyd Wright inspired spaces that are normally not found in today’s homes.
The home at 16223 E. Inca Drive is one such example! It offers a continuing opportunity, while the heavy lifting in the kitchen and baths has been completed by the current owner, who is an ASID Designer. Other key updates include indoor and outdoor wall textures, roof coatings, gutters, landscape systems, new high efficiency windows in most locations, 2 of 3 air conditioning units and lighting details. Simply enjoy the home and continue to add your personal touches to its beautiful patios, gardens and interior spaces.
Of course, a home’s appeal is directly tied to its community, and Fountain Hills
tops the list for the fantastic lifestyle it offers to empty nesters, retirees and families alike. One of the most celebrated communities in Maricopa County, the “world-class community with the hometown charm” is highly acclaimed by many prestigious organizations, including:
