35 Garnet Hill Drive, Luna Rossa (Red Moon), Sedona, Arizona:
A Place Far from the Ordinary

Constructed with a modern style and ancient judgment, the latest home designed by ingenious Aldo Anderoli of Sanba International invites you to a place far from the ordinary but close to the amenities of Sedona. Shaped like a half-moon and built on a 2.06 acre lot, it is surrounded with unobstructed views of Boynton Canyon and Cockscomb.

The Garnet Hill Drive residence in the Estates at North Slopes curves with the natural contours of the terrain to maximize the potential of the lot. The orientation of the home is built with conscious solar alignment giving protection from the summer heat provided by the northern exposure, while still allowing privacy and extraordinary views.

Focusing on details is a trademark of Sanba International. This home will be a magnificent curve with its timeless modern design and expansive floor-plan along a 85 foot long negative edge swimming pool. Outdoor living flows with the indoor space by way of a central internal garden that welcomes you at the formal entrance. Outdoor terraces of Arizona flagstone cover 2500 square feet providing room for open air dining and entertainment plus covered areas for sun and rain protection. The pool incorporates a custom whirlpool and foundation to complete the outdoor luxury-imagine relaxing in the whirlpool while gazing at the setting sun’s reflections on Boynton Canyon.

The private internal garden enclosed by operable windows is the hub of the home. The elegant living areas revolve around it, creating a continuous open flow between all spaces. The master suite is designed separate from the other bedrooms for privacy. The open kitchen plan combines function and beauty by featuring European and American top of the line appliances with the best of Italian design.

The magnificent red rock views engulf the home by way of double glazed, low-E oversized windows. These windows offer superior thermal performance throughout by improving the insulating value by reflecting long wave heat back to its source.

Extraordinary amenities will include a gourmet designed Varenna kitchen with Subzero brand refrigerator and freezer. You can try a Sedona Homes & Garden recipe on your Wolf six-burner cook-top crowned with an Astra kitchen hood by Varenna. Two wall–mounted ovens and microwave will delight the cook in the family. The sky-lighted circular pantry will keep everything in easy reach.

Refresh in the opulence of high-tech steam showers, European-designed soak-in tubs, his and her vanities, bidet and Toto water closets.

The master bedroom will feature a Fireorb suspended fireplace and an Italian closet system. The room faces a private terrace with access to the pool and the custom whirlpool tub.

The spacious guest quarters consists of two oversize bedrooms and two full baths with Jacuzzi tubs and custom closet systems. You may never get your visitors to leave!

Quality finishes like the wide-plank Merbau wood flooring and Bisazza glass mosaic tiles underscore the feeling of amazing details. Lualdi eight-foot glass panel passage doors reveal finer points in the meticulous design.

Additional areas include a pre-wired media room and a studio with a private bath. A two-car garage with a separate space for garbage collection and recycling is connected to the house through a carport. The carport will offer an additional covered parking space.

Aldo Andreoli’s flowing designs, international amenities and meticulous details embrace you in an extraordinary home. Attention to the land and the movement of the sun maximizes the astounding views while incorporating an incomparable chic lifestyle in a prime site in Estates at North Slope.
