Dr. Alan Nelson, founder, chairman, and CEO of VisonGate who also developed the world’s first and only automated screening test to detect cervical cancer, and Dierdre Meldrum, former Dean of the Arizona State University Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, have listed their 14,124 Sq.-Ft. Phoenix home for $6 million with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.
The former executive director of Arizona State University’s (ASU) Biodesign Institute and has held faculty positions at ASU, University of Washington, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard. Dr. Nelson holds more than 100 U.S. patents and has more than 100 peer-reviewed publications in the field of biomedical imaging.
Nelson and Meldrum’s one acre home is listed by Oriana Lehmanwood and Jim Bruske. The 7-bedroom, 11-bathroom home is impeccably rooted with Mediterranean architecture. This one-of-a-kind residence with private lifestyle property exudes a feeling of comfort, class and home in every extravagantly appointed room.
The acre parcel with mature botanical gardens, stages unobstructed views of the adjoining 16,000 acres of mountain national preserve. Dramatic sunrises and sunsets can be enjoyed from multiple verandas, patios and trails.
A tour is a must to fully appreciate the special blend of uncompromising craftsmanship, stunning architecture and sense of belonging as you stroll through grand spaces. This jaw-dropping home at 12234 S Honah Lee Ct. in Ahwatukee has details that will be sure to impress anyone, like the Harry Potter Library with a weather sensing retractable glass pyramid roof and a built-in bookcase.
The $6,475,000 private home has expansive desert views that can be especially appreciated from the owner suite alongside a fire place. This 14,124 square-foot desert vacation home boasts a separate 2-bedroom guest house to be able to give guests their own sense of privacy.
“Aside from its meticulously David a Dick designed attributes and cozy Mediterranean feel, this residence offers something most luxury homes in Arizona don’t have — the alluring views and serene privacy of a 16,000 national preserve as part of their backyard,” said Bruske.
The residence gives clear mountain, city light and sunset views in every direction. This captivating layout gives the Phoenix home a feeling of tranquility – the upper main home looks down onto the pool area and oversees the vibrant desert blooms.
The backyard features a beautiful deck with sport courts with a gazebo and ramada to oversee the views. The built-in-barbecue is sure to make for the perfect outdoor oasis. The residence also features a game room, a separate workshop, media room, a loft, exercise and sauna room, and a chef’s luxury kitchen.
“This home really showcases everything that Russ Lyon Sotheby’s is about, providing the best quality service and the most luxurious high-end homes to the public,” said Bruske.
