A desert stream runs through the $3.3 million Arizona mansion built into the rocks

A divine desert home built into the rocks in Scottsdale, Arizona, has hit the market for $3,315,000.

Located at The Boulders Resort, the four-bedroom adobe-style residence features real boulders nestled within a 6,629-square-foot interior.

“First and foremost, what makes the property so unique is its architect-designed adobe construction Bill Toole“says the listing agent Stacey Paluccio, from Ross Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. “There aren’t a lot of these properties. The other thing to note is its location in the real estate section of The Boulders. It’s high up in the community and has a golf course that wraps around it.”

“At the entrance, there are two huge boulders that were integrated into the design of the house, so you feel like you’re really connected to the outdoors,” Paluccio noted. “It’s a beautiful way to bring the outdoors inside.”

Known as La Casa Sobre La Laguna (translates as “the house over the creek”), the property sits on an acre offering views of the mountain, golf course and rocks – as well as some interesting wildlife.

“The property also has a nice relationship with nature; it has an abundance of wildlife, including lizards, lynxes and lizards,” Paluccio says, referring to the wild boar-type creatures. “It’s like you’re in a nature reserve. If you’re a wildlife lover, it’s a lot of fun.”

Another great feature is the stream that runs underneath the house which can be viewed directly through the floor.

“There’s also a man-made desert stream that runs under the house,” Paluccio says. “You can look down from the walkway and den area, through these glass tiles on the floor, and see the bobcats hanging out underneath them.”

Outside, an infinity pool, spa, or wrap-around deck will be perfect places to enjoy stunning Sonoran sunsets. The property also includes two private guest houses and a four-car garage.

“The next buyer will likely be a fan of adobe homes and want a home that features unusual architecture while living with romance and art,” Palusio predicts. “It will likely be used as a second or third home as well, but it could also be a primary residence. The Boulders attracts avid golfers, outdoor enthusiasts and hikers who love to enjoy the outdoors.”
