Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, the Valley’s leader in luxury real estate, is proud to announce the New Darlings’ home is now on the market. Christina and Robert Martinez are the husband and wife behind the New Darlings.
The New Darlings have 460k+ followers on Instagram and a wholesome family and lifestyle blog. Christina, Robert, and Oliver Martinez’s memories are recorded and featured on the blog, including the remodeling journey of their Phoenix home.
The enchanting home is a 1930 Tudor in the historic Brentwood neighborhood of Central Phoenix. The property received a complete overhaul from its current owners, no surface untouched, no idea left undone.
We spent so much time and energy to find a harmony between beauty and functionality for our home. We are sad to be leaving this house but we are excited to find new owners that will appreciate it as much as we do.Christina Martinez
The 1,846 square foot main house is home to 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is listed at $700,000 by Michelle Renteria of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.
Upon entering the light-filled, opulent home, guests are greeted by smooth plaster walls, gorgeous hardwood floors, double archways leading into the stunning kitchen, and a dining space overlooking the lush backyard and guest house. The home’s garden-chic interior compliments the desert surroundings.
The expansive owner’s suite boasts vaulted ceilings, skylights, and a massive walk-in closet complete with laundry, French doors to the patio, and a lovely en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub, dual sinks, and stall shower.
The secondary bedroom and hall bath embrace historic details and charm while providing owners with modernized windows, closet system, and updated lighting and hardware.
The 200 square foot guest house provides the perfect space for out-of-town guests and is complete with a private bathroom, kitchenette, storage, and a private patio.
The remodel was completed in 2018 by Loyal Construction Co. and Ron Elliot Studios. It expanded the footprint of the home and included a full owner’s suite remodel as well as a kitchen, dining, and back patio re-imagination.
This is truly one of the most wonderful and thoughtful homes I have had the pleasure of listing. Robert and Christina have poured their talents into this home and have made it very special. A home this enchanting and modern in the beautiful Brentwood Historic District will not be on the market for long.Michelle Renteria, Global Real Estate Advisor
