Architecturally Significant Homes
The Phoenix Metropolitan area has a long history of great architecture. From Post World War I bungalows, Mid Century Modern ranches and striking new contemporary homes, there are beautiful examples of architecturally significant homes everywhere you look in Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and Phoenix. Past great architects like Frank Lloyd Wright called the Phoenix area home, and a number of prestigious designers like John Douglas and Vern Swaback live and design in the Phoenix area today.
As the premier luxury real estate agent of Paradise Valley, I have the opportunity to present many of these architecturally significant homes as they come up for sale. Here are some of the contemporary homes currently for sale in Paradise Valley:
