    A home has long been thought of as a place of refuge, exemplified by this private and secluded hilltop estate situated on over 2 acres in the heart of the Catalina Foothills. This quintessential Tucson estate home is uniquely sited to offer unfettered and dramatic view portals that stretch out over the lush mature gardens, echoing the rhythm of its natural surroundings. An architecturally significant property, privately gated and originally designed by celebrated architect Josias Joesler at the height of his career. In 2007 the current owners embarked on an ambitious and sensitive remodel enlisting the assistance of local architect Ron Robinette, with the help of Gordon McKinley, and Galen Hasenpflug to preserve and protect the vision articulating this romantic regional vernacular home. The extensive remodel meticulously restored original details, while infusing the latest modern advancements and curated materials sourced from around the world. Envisioned for both large-scale entertaining and intimate family life this 8,107 square foot fully sustainable home offers Solyndra rooftop solar panels, larger underground cisterns harvesting rainwater for landscape irrigation and a private water well, all of which harness the natural resources, while optimizing cost efficient energy and water usage. Enter into a living environment with a sense of permanence and architecture that is a reflection of the rich and lush landscape that extends the architectural palette, evoking a feeling of lifestyle that responds to the unified dialog between the architecture and the adjoining landscape. Maximizing the home's dramatic relationship between interior and exterior spaces is achieved through careful design and placement of the structure, with connectivity to various courtyards. Beyond the home's private entry, one is greeted by a light-filled and cozy floor plan, replete with warm vertical tones and textures complimented by the exquisite custom millwork, providing a visual and tactile experience. The main Zaguan opens onto the sophisticated formal living room featuring the original refinished 1940's beamed ceilings, with stunning Mesquite and Turkish travertine flooring that floats seamlessly into the kitchen and family rooms, providing a subtle yet delicate contrast. The heart of the home is the fabulous Chef's kitchen with impeccable fit and finish throughout, including custom cabinetry, granite countertops, top-end stainless steel appliances, surrounding the exquisite custom-tailored Island offering an array of service counter space, acting as a focal point in this kitchen designed to substantial scale and comfort. Accommodations are split across the primary level, with four ensuite bedrooms to be found in the main residence, including the owners suite concealed on the East wing of the property, boasting a sumptuously appointed bathroom, with large walk-in shower and radiant heated rooms, as well as separate lounge and office areas, with doors opening out onto a private veranda. The detached guest casita is elevated and situated on the Southwest end of the property, featuring a living room, kitchenette and separate bedroom/bath, with a spiral staircase leading to the rooftop deck providing unobstructed views. Light and shade, openness and enclosure, make for an inviting ambiance, with a succession of courtyards resulting in a juxtaposition of private and social spaces. Quiet sitting areas sequestered throughout the property, with covered dining patios unwinding like a narrative of texture, light and mood, emphasizing entertainment as a key element of the outdoor lifestyle.
