No. 5242 – lot 4 is just less than 6 acres reaching out to the Colorado River offering a 2,591 sq. ft. main house designed by world renowned architect & author – Christopher Alexander. The approach to this unique home is so warm & inviting that you start to relax the moment you get out of your vehicle. Once inside you will have a feeling of belonging to a place & structure – a special quality of “wholeness” as the architect would say. A folksy design flows throughout with the show stopper clearly being the incredible beamed ceilings in the living, dining & kitchen. The windows & trim provide an abundance of natural light adding to the richness. A favorite of most visitors is the expansive tree top deck off the primary bedroom which evokes a feeling of tree fort whimsy.
