This newly listed desert home is a stunning example of modern architecture in the Southwest, and is in pristine condition. John H. Howe, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s apprentices, is responsible for designing all of the furniture, shelf lighting, and stained glass art pieces in this beautifully crafted home. The home still has many of the original furnishings displayed throughout the home, in addition to furniture and lighting he designed for both Frank Lloyd Wright, and John H Howe’s homes.

From Jackie McDermott:
It is the early 1960’s and Carefree is a vision of the future that knows no bounds. This original residence provides a unique blending of organic architecture and desert landscape. Fast forward two decades and the new owner, himself a notable master craftsman in wood, enlists Taliesin legend John Howe to take it to the next level. This is the result. The home is perfectly integrated into the boulder-strewn lot, a masterpiece of mid-century modern architecture influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright. Howe’s dramatically lit interior fully realizes the property’s unique potential without disturbing the original open plan. Along with panoramic views of Black Mountain and surroundings, features include two master suites with shared patio, and self-contained 712 square foot guest house. Truly one-of-a-kind . . . then and now.
