Esta casa puede ser su casa – “This house can be your house” – custom designed specifically for Arizona’s outdoor/indoor lifestyle for the pure joy of living in a very special desert mansion

Built in 2008 by Tim Larson and Ron Steege at La Casa Builders, this one level 7,258 square foot deluxe home is sited on a one-acre triangular lot in the heart of Royal Palm Estates with more than spectacular views of Camelback Mountains. Designed by C.P. Drewett, the property includes a separate semi-attached guesthouse casita with kitchen, living room, bath, and private bedroom; covered patio, gated multiple garages, a splendid swimming pool/spa, and a chef inspired kitchen center, are all intended to provide the ultimate in entertaining inside or outdoors. The park-like grounds include beautifully maintained lawns, intricate landscaping, and an abundance of outdoor entertaining spaces. It provides the perfect blend of what is expect in a traditional hacienda with the charm of a modern one along with all the comfort and security.

Drawing inspiration from its location, interior designer, Kim Alonzo, ASID, created an extraordinary and comfortable home that seamlessly combines classic Southwestern design with the current owners’ personal charm and influence on the details. One can also note subtle touches of grandeur alongside dazzling luxury, such as the washable and durable fabrics throughout the home, as well as the furniture that was custom fabricated and meant to be used for form and function – not just to be admired. Everywhere throughout the house are handcrafted woodwork and ornamental wrought iron elements that express the spirit of the Southwest; reclaimed Douglas fir beams and corbels that were salvaged from old sawmills and buildings from the early 1900s, add an authenticity not often found in newer construction.


The openness of the rooms and the essence of the layout of the house, speaks to entertaining both inside and outside. From the entry courtyard to the patios, guests can enjoy the covered areas, luxuriously designed 360 negative edge pool, elevated spa with multiple waterfalls, and outdoor shower to truly appreciate Arizona living! The outdoor kitchen, two-sided fireplace, fire pits, an indoor/outdoor wet-bar, and many other amenities – are too numerous to list. One of the more notable aesthetic treats is the entry water wall of scored New Mexico granite and the delightful rustic wine room.
