Home of the Week: A Spectacular Mountain Retreat in Arizona
In our newest ‘Home of the Week’, we move from a grand home in Chicago’s North Shore to the great Southwest for a look at a 16,000 square foot estate appropriately named the “Log Mahal”.
Located in the “Heart of Arizona”, this truly unique mountain retreat is perfect for grizzled outdoorsmen and laid back golf enthusiasts alike. Upon entering this elegantly appointed home you are immediately captivated by the fine wood work that dominates its aesthetic; punctuated by 175 year-old reclaimed hard wood floors and unique hand-carved doors imported from Mexico and Peru. Clearly, striking a harmonious balance between luxury and a unity with the outdoors that surrounds this enormous home and its grounds was a priority for the architects of the “Log Mahal”.
Listed for $6 million by Linda Jeffries with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the home features 9 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 3 full kitchens, a wine cellar, 6 fireplaces and a “play house” with a 6 car garage! As if all of this wasn’t enough, the estate also features truly fun and personal “touches” such as an 1800s style saloon that plays off the home’s iconic “western” style flavor. One could almost imagine John Wayne and Clint Eastwood strolling in slowly and sharing a meal by the bar. Add in the two golf memberships that are included in the sale of this estate and this is certainly a log home that Abe Lincoln would have enjoyed.
