Designed by Sherri Mleynek, 20 Garnet Hill is masterfully sited on its 2.07-acre lot in gated Estates at North Slopes and taking full advantage of the rich red rock monuments to the east, north and west. The paver driveway opens up to a contemporary home finished in 2003 with partial stacked stone exterior, a 3-car garage, mature desert landscaping, and a walled and gated front courtyard with water feature. The foyer is welcoming with travertine flooring, art niches and coffered ceiling. Warmth is a key word in this contemporary home’s description…warmth which is fostered by rooms which are expertly proportioned to provide desired space and intimacy all at the same time, by the soft lines of the coffered ceilings and arched curves of windows, by the natural earthtones incorporated in the materials chosen, and by the subtle stained glass employed for light and privacy. The focal point of the living room is an appealing stacked stone woodburning fireplace with gas starter and flagstone hearth. Noteworthy are the banco seating, access doors to the front patio and pool areas plus the views of the Coxcomb to the west. The kitchen and dining area are rich with the warm tones of walnut flooring, knotty alder cabinetry and outstanding granite countertops which complement the woods used. The heart of the home, this area includes a casual breakfast bar, gorgeous red rock views to the east and west, pendant lighting, and the best in appliances: Asko dishwasher, SubZero refrigerator, Dacor 6-burner range with two warming drawers, double Dacor ovens, Dacor microwave, SubZero wine cooler and trash compactor. The dining area incorporates a wall of built-ins which include wine racks, buffet serving area with storage beneath and a door wall of glass to the covered patio and outdoor barbecue overlooking the pool area. One guest bedroom with private bath and door to a patio is on this level. Adjacent to the kitchen is a half bath and a handsome office with bookshelf built-ins. The owner's bedroom overlooks the pool and includes his and her closets, gas log beehive fireplace and a luxurious bathroom with dual sinks, vanity area, Jetta tub with 13 jets, and walk-in shower. The lower level includes a 2nd guest suite with private bath and door to a patio, a half bath convenient to the pool, a washer/dryer for this level, and a large media room with built-in cabinetry, wet bar with microwave and small refrigerator. This home is designed so that its owners and guests may revel in the outdoors. The saltwater pool plus hot tub are surrounded by paver pool decking, a woodburning kiva fireplace with banco seating, covered as well as open dining areas, outdoor speakers, and a generous waterfall. Relax on the deck looking down on the pool and waterfall or join the fun poolside.
