Under Contract! Luxury Masterpiece in Westwood Estates
4 Beds | 3 Baths | $1,500,000
This luxurious Westwood Estates home is a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship that creates a modern yet timeless living experience. Designed by renowned architect Brian Cox for his own family, this home is replete with features personally chosen to maximize great style and function. The beauty of nature seamlessly melds with architecturally interesting features and finishes, creating a work of art that is called home. If you desire modern elegance, privacy, and the ability to appreciate both thoughtful design and nature on a forested homesite, this home is your unique opportunity.
Located in Westwood Estates, a Flagstaff custom home community with access to trails, nature and golf, and only minutes from Downtown Flagstaff, this is a one-of-a-kind home. The design of the ductwork being Japanese industrial. A Japanese company, "Seiho International Inc." made all of the round air vents upstairs.
As you walk down the walkway to the front door, you notice the massive smooth posts held in place by custom designed galvanized steel plates. The smooth posts and joists were sand blasted before installation with black slag instead of silica sand, because the silica would embed itself into the wood.
The outside of the house is protected by shingles made of western Red Cedar wood (stained with a beautiful semi-transparent stain made by Cabot http://www.cabotstain.com) with 14 stainless steel ring shank nails to prevent rust. The garage door is paneled with clear red cedar 1x6 boards horizontally to the door sections. As the cedar was applied, each one was meticulously weighed so the garage door springs would be weighted properly with the weight of the wood on the door.
Kovach Roofing http://www.kovachroofing.com/, the best metal roofing company in the state of AZ, installed the metal Roof. A Champagne metallic finish was used, with heavy duty BitutheneÂ® membrane underneath which is self-healing and will adhere itself to the roof under the metal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ub1lJc1p15E
End blocks from the quarry are on the fireplace, the marks are from the drill when they drilled the granite to excavate it. They slice it into slabs and polish it, but what are on the fireplaces are the ends of the blocks that they normally discard. They were shipped from Brazil and used as the surround on the three fireplaces.
All three are gas fireplaces that were designed to be capped off if the new owner would like to use wood instead of gas.
They are Rumford fireplaces: http://www.rumford.com/ which are very effective at throwing the heat out because of their shape, the construction of the throat behind the top lintel is of a durable clay.
The Chimney is 26 ft wide, 5 ft deep, and 36 ft high, with three of the Rumford fireplaces on it.
Windows and Doors:
All Weather Shield insulated glass, low E. Low-e glass, officially called low emissivity glass, is a type of glass that is treated to decrease the amount of heat that is transmitted through your window into your home. http://www.weathershield.com/News/WS-Blog/EntryId/22/What-is-Low-E-Glass.aspx
German hardware on the Weather Shield doors, a 4-point locking mechanism.
All hardware is stainless steel throughout the entire house. All light and electrical plates throughout the house were made by "Lutron" http://www.lutron.com/en-US/Products/Pages/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/DimmersSwitches.aspx The colors of the walls also match the plates!
The doors throughout the house are made of solid Alder wood made to match the other cabinetry throughout the house. The doorframes are made of Alder with no casings they are inset, to create a very clean look. All of the stationery wood in the house was finished and lacquered in place.
The architect designed the stainless steel plates that hold the staircase together and galvanized steel that holds the posts in the front porch. 200 bolts in the staircase alone that all together weigh 400 pounds!
All the stainless steel downstairs registers are custom designed by the owner and fabricated by "Magnum Engineering" out of Phoenix the same engineering firm that fabricated the stainless steel handrails, also designed by the owner, completely monolithic, entirely seamless.
#3 rebar at 18" on center both ways run under the entire concrete floor. The concrete has fiberglass in it to increase stability and durability. They were scored and grouted. The concrete itself was colored "Kahlua" and then it was stained with a Plum and Sienna stain and then sealed. It is damp mopped with a little Murphy's oil soap, very low maintenance and high durability.
Upstairs flooring is Bamboo. Truss-joists were used in the floors instead of the regular 2 xs normally used. It creates solid, stable floors. The entire roof is also this type of truss.
All of the walls are made of 5/8 commercial grade sheet rock with a level 5 finish. Skim coating is when the entire surface of the dry wall is thinly coated with the mud, no seams. Three paint colors were used, off white, a grey/green color, and the red accent wall.
The block creating the walls is the heaviest standard block available (not cinder block), made by "Superlite". The blocks were shot blasted to create the textured finish. They are actually 8x8x16 but because they are scored, it gives the appearance of 8x8x8.
All fascia is doubled up offset 2x14 western Red Cedar forming a hidden vent so the roof space can breathe.
All cabinetry throughout the house is made of Cherry Wood, including the kitchen. The closets in every room are entirely freestanding and fully adjustable to your needs. They can be moved and arranged as desired. All floors were finished to every wall underneath them so movement is not limited.
All of the lighting in the house is commercial grade, not available to the general public. Some of it is from the U.S. some of it is Italian.
Designed to be very user friendly. Everything appears to be where it should be and where it is most easily utilized. Equipped with ample storage and recessed lighting under the cabinets. The floor registers are discreetly hidden underneath the center island. The cabinetry is once again, all cherry.
The beautiful granite throughout the house is Juparana Florence imported from Brazil
All bathrooms are the same, with the same tile and floors. All tile is done the old-fashioned way, mud set, not glued to the dry wall. Cement board to the wall and then a mud screen. Stronger and better quality makes it perfectly flat.
All bathroom and laundry room floors are tiled with a German limestone called Jura Beige
All toilets are high efficiency Toto toilets
The bathroom skylights upstairs are all electrically operated and will automatically close when it rains.
The master bedroom is the vision of luxury. It has its own balcony and beautiful granite enhanced Rumford fireplace.
Luxury elements include granite counter tops and beautiful limestone floor coverings. Worth noting are pocket doors throughout and movable cherry wood closets. This is truly a one-of-a-kind home, a piece of art that you can own and live in. Call now for a private showing!
