Located outside of Tuscon, Oro Valley, Arizona rests between the Catalina Mountains to the east and the Tortolita Mountains to the northwest. Ranked one of the best places in Arizona for families, it has become known as a desirable area for both second homes and main residences.

Within Oro Valley sits Stone Canyon, a community centered around a golf course and clubhouse. Noted golf course designer Jay Morrish took on the task of designing Stone Canyon with an idea not to obliterate the desert setting but to work within it.

Stone Canyon offers a variety of real estate, from custom homesites to semi-custom homes and “lock and leave” homes. Built in 2009, this contemporary four-bedroom home mirrors the drama of its desert setting. With over 7,000 square feet, the challenge to the designers was to create a home that was both grand and intimate.

The extremes of the desert are reflected by a  finely tuned balance that offers an interplay between open and light spaces, and more intimate areas for smaller gatherings. Custom lighting, ceiling, fans, and specially commissioned wall sculpture, and the use of iron slate stack stone, imbue the home with a declarative style.

The main home has three bedrooms including a master suite with fireplace, theater room, and home office. There is also a separate one-bedroom guest house.
