Situated within a picturesque box canyon in one of the most prestigious townships in Phoenix, Up and Away is afforded some of the most breathtaking views. With its back set into the slope of Mummy Mountain, this contemporary masterpiece truly is unique.

Mathematically complex to engineer due to the constraints of the hillside ordinance, Up and Away fits so perfectly into the setting that it appears to meld into the hillside. Due to its siting and design, this two-story home looks out to undulating hills and valleys through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows.

Far to the north, Black Mountain and the quaint towns of Cave Creek and Carefree come into view. Closer in, the native landscape envelopes the elevated site.

To make indoor/outdoor living a breeze, pocketing doors open to three covered patios. On the side of the residence, a sun-drenched spool is seamlessly situated between a patio and a scenic outcropping of boulders. The effect of being one with the mountain doesn’t get much better!

Equally remarkable is the backyard view. Here, desert flora and fauna become part of the experience with the house integrated into the hillside. Visible from inside the home, the mountain is like a work of natural art.

The five-bedroom residence is just as impressive inside and features a lower-level glass-tower entry, an elevator, attached guest quarters, and a four-car garage. Up and Away’s light-filled interiors and high ceilings offer a loft-like ambiance that makes this one-of-a-kind residence a sight to behold.
