A TOUR OF ONE OF ARIZONA’S MOST MAGNIFICENT HOMES

Greetings from Phoenix, Arizona.

I’m taking a break from my Iberian Odyssey Cruise coverage to take you on a tour of one of Arizona’s most magnificent homes.

It happens to be the beautiful abode of my talented interior designer friend Jennifer Johnstad of Shutters Home. You may recall seeing her lovely estate when I took you to a beautiful engagement party she hosted recently. If you missed that post you can click here to view it.

Located in the exclusive area of Phoenix known as Arcadia, Jenn has recently put her beautiful, 6200 square foot Ranch style home on the market. For just over $3 million dollars her 4 bedroom, 5 bath home could be yours! So, she welcomes you to come on in and see it.

I love Jenn’s front door, which allows lots of natural light into the large foyer area.

The foyer opens into a formal dining room with an interesting and unique vaulted ceiling.

As you will see, many distinctive elements adorn the home, from custom millwork to crown molding and wainscoting.

Just off the kitchen is the barrel-shaped informal dining room with views of the expansive backyard.

The home, situated on almost a full acre of land, is designed in a U shape.

One side of the “U” houses a long hallway with rows of French Doors that open onto the rear courtyard.

    Magnificent home indeed! I love everything about it. But wonder how she survives that Arizona climate without a pool. Looks like there’s plenty of room to add one, so no problemo.

  • Hi Juliet. Yes, the AZ heat does require a pool. When Jenn bought the house there wasn’t one (guess that’s obvious:) so after pouring so much money into the complete remodel of the home, they decided to leave the addition of a pool to the next owners. There certainly is plenty of room for one.

  • You know I always love seeing more of Jen’s home! Are they downscaling? I get it if so!!!

  • No, they are actually moving to California and are building a home on Coronado Island. I’ll be happy to have them much closer to me!
