Inspired by the glorious Andalusian farmhouses of Spain, Avenida El Alba is a sophisticated and luxurious retreat that reflects that magical merging of inspiration and architecture.

Created by renowned architect Mark Fredstrom, the Santa Barbara style estate is a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship featuring stone and wood flooring; tray, beamed, and brick and barrel-vaulted ceilings; hand-carved Cantera fireplaces, and custom iron work.

This lavish, 8,396 square-foot luxury estate has a north-south exposure, amazing curb appeal, and fabulous 180-degree views of Camelback Mountain as well as the entire Mummy Mountain range, all nestled in the valley’s most prestigious neighborhood.

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac lot, beautiful desert landscaping and tiered fountain greet you as you enter this southwestern luxury property. A short trip over tumbled pavers, reminiscent of old Europe, take you to a private gated motor court ready to house eight of your finest vehicles in the comfort of air-conditioned spaces.

Imagine entering your palatial round foyer with the daylight streaming through clerestory windows before settling in your grand living room or family room with soaring ceilings and enjoying a roaring fire in the hand-carved Cantera fireplace. Entertain family and friends in the fully equipped theater or billiards room, while sipping wine from your own private wine cellar.

Top-of-the-line gourmet kitchen hosts Viking appliances and double island. Clad with premium finishes, fixtures, and custom quality Rysso Peters Custom Cabinetry in the kitchen, as well as the laundry room, closets, and office.

Sliding glass doors in the dining area highlight views while opening the home to even more light and air. Spill out onto the awe-inspiring wrap-around, covered patio and enjoy the cool misters on a hot, sunny day or welcoming fireplace when the evening turns cool.

Six private bedroom suites, all boasting sleek ensuite baths, generous closets, and wonderful views. The divine master bedroom is the ultimate retreat complete with a spa-like bath with fireplace and huge his and hers closets and elegant office.

Resort style backyard has a 2,000-sq. ft. heated pool and oversized spa for year-round entertaining. Gracefully descend a curved stone staircase flanked by tall junipers to access the lower grounds and your own private putting green.

Of course, with a home like this, you’ll be on the top of the list for out of town visitors. What better way to host visitors with a separate guest house fully equipped with kitchen and living room.
Other highlights include central vacuum system, safe room, oversized laundry with island, exercise/sauna room, and exquisite garden walk. As well as creative sound full home automation with Crestron, Lutron, Plasmas TV's throughout, and Pella Architectural series windows.

On 1.15 acres of premier acreage, this Spanish Chateau is the crème de la crème in prestigious Salida Del Sol.
