Both Scottsdale Properties Are Architectural Masterpieces
Joan and Michael Salke, who made Art and Antiques top 100 collectors list, are selling their Scottsdale architectural masterpiece.
The 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom home, located at 27482 N 103rd St. is $4,750,000 and was designed by Scottsdale based architecture firm, Drewett Works. The home is being listed by Debbie Negrin, Will Foote and Jay Pennypacker.
The 7,300-square-foot home includes a massive, dual segment butterfly roof incorporating two 75-foot wings. It floats above an elevated, golf course lot in Estancia with panoramic golf, Pinnacle Peak and sunset views.
It features an abundance of specialty glass and large, long walls perfect for an extensive art collection. An open, great room and kitchen concept is perfect for entertaining while the split floor plan works well for family and guests.
“It takes merely a second on site to realize that this artfully designed home is an architectural masterpiece,” said Pennypacker. “It truly exemplifies the ideals of beauty and luxury.”
Stephane Janssen, a world-renowned art collector, has listed the desert gem at 39029 Alister Mckenzie Dr, in Scottsdale. Bloomberg News called it a “Desert Mansion” that “Comes With Built-In Art.” The owner is the scion of a 19th century European Industrialist who became a grand philanthropist. Following in his great-great-great grandfather’s philanthropic footsteps, the Janssen pursued a passion for philanthropy and art in all forms, including this house.
At $4,995,000, a lucky owner will get 4 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 11,560 square feet of space presiding upon a one-of-a-kind 15-acre estate that towers over the Valley.
The magnificent home drapes across a natural island-in-the-sky platform that offers privacy and security. The architectural design embodies humanity’s march from early man living in southwest pueblos forward through time to a futuristic world. The design is part organic pueblo, part southwest contemporary and part futuristic modern.
“Few homes we see today are singular in their design and location,” said Gillenwater. “Many are designed to mimic trendy styles and tastes. The Janssen home matches extraordinary and timeless architecture with an irreplaceable location. It will forever remain relevant in any market.”
