Iconic Estates: Holiday Hearths

Nothing is better than gathering around a cozy fireplace during the holidays. And, as winter continues, a hearth is the natural feature in your home to spend your time by, especially in the evenings.

Since the fireplace is often the focal point of a room, adorning your hearth with decadent holiday decor creates a beautiful atmosphere for making those lasting winter memories. Be the host with the most by layering green garlands, twinkling lights or votive candles around the fireplace to create the ideal holiday hearth.

If you’re looking for a beautiful home with an eye-catching hearth, look no further than the gorgeous estates offered by Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. The company’s lifestyle specialists are there to assist you in finding the perfect home for entertaining or hosting your holiday soirees.

Take a peek at the beautiful holiday hearths featured in this edition of ICONIC Estates to find some inspiration for the season!

The holidays are a time when many people feel compelled to give back to their community by making holiday donations to causes that align with their values. If you are interested in giving the gift of hope to sick and injured children while also achieving your financial goals, Phoenix Children’s offers many ways to support world-class pediatric health care with an immediate tax benefit. Here are the ways you can support Arizona’s children and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit.

Erik Segelbaum, a sommelier, wine educator and wine journalist, joined Monogram in a first-ever role as the Wine Director. He leads the creation and direction of wine education at brand events to elevate the palates of consumers with sophisticated pairings as part of the Monogram Culinary Guidelines.

He has been named a 2020 Wine Enthusiast “40 under 40 Global Tastemaker” and Food & Wine Magazine “2019 Sommelier of the Year.” A truly accomplished sommelier, Segelbaum tells us that his “ultimate foray into wine isn’t particularly sexy,” but some might call his journey the American Dream.

As construction begins, we await a masterpiece in the desert that will be available to own for a discerning homeowner with whom this level of team and quality resonates.⁠ ⁠

To that end, every inch of the 17,000-plus square-foot home, plus 9,000 square feet of covered outdoor living space, was contemplated with discerning intention, understanding the exacting standards of the high-net worth individuals who will find Ellington Heights compelling.⁠ ⁠

It’s a modern estate yet perfectly at home in the Arizona desert. And, much like the desert itself, the design exudes understated simplicity, yet is significant in its detail. Envisioned with only the finest materials and finishes available, the homeowner can expect perfection at every turn.
