An iconic mid-century modern estate of this caliber rarely becomes available to the public. Enter, stage left, the ''Smith Residence'' by local architect Frank Martin (responsible for significant architecture in Phoenix, including what is now the Bank of America building at 20th St. and Camelback with memorable exterior bas reliefs). This unparalleled home has undergone an extensive restoration.The entry way features a free-standing terrarium--unlike any other--a true conversational piece. The contemporary modern design boasts polished flooring, natural light, soothing palette, black tile fireplace and open floor plan. The European style kitchen abounds with custom cabinets, thick granite countertops, island, high-end SS appliances, upgraded lighting, and breakfast nook. Sensational dining room for entertaining. Music room with gorgeous convex ceiling provides excellent acoustics, as well as dramatic architectural beauty. Oversized master ensuite bedroom includes dual custom vanities, large custom walk-in closets, and centered bathtub. Generous bedrooms with designer touches and ample closet space throughout. The meticulous backyard includes a pool that echos the most exquisite Palm Springs parties, features Travertine pavers, Cypress trees, and a large covered patio to enjoy the magnificent Arizona sunsets, truly an entertainer's dream! The 3 car carport is an architectural gem itself (show off your classic car MCM style) plus a large front drive for guests. This immediately recognizable home is in close proximity to Downtown Phoenix, parallel to Murphy's Bridle Path, which offers a shaded trail for runners and nature lovers. It is also eligible to be placed on not only the Phoenix Historic Property Register but also the National Register of Historic Places. A conservation easement has been applied for and will protect this home in perpetuity.
