The Lush Desert

By Logan Oulman

So many families are eager to purchase real estate in Scottsdale, Arizona, that there must be a pretty good reason why. One explanation is that there are both outdoor conveniences and indoor indulgences to suit your preference.

In 1937, the world famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, bought some of Scottsdale’s undeveloped real estate. In northeast Scottsdale, in the luxurious Sonoran desert, nestled in the McDowell Mountains’ shadows, Wright constructed Taliesin West, to serve as his studio, personal winter residence, and architectural campus.

Wright’s legendary vision still attracts people to Taliesin West to see Wright’s embodied plans and architectural wisdom. Wright’s private home is open to visitors and has been restored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to look inside and out how it did when first built in the 1930s.

Taliesin West tours allow guests to witness the architect’s integration of inside and outside space regularly in tours lasting from one to three hours. Interested visitors may choose among tours of the Cabaret Theater, the Music Pavilion or the Wright’s office which are connected via gardens, terraces and paths with views of the vivid desert and valley nearby.

Wright’s architectural impact and ideas touch many areas in Scottsdale, the Scottsdale Convention and Visitor’s Bureau tells us, and one such example of this is found at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa, one of the most indulgent of Scottsdale’s resort properties. This luxurious resort enjoys a history filled with Hollywood celebrities as well as an architectural past linked to the Wright legacy.

Vernon Swaback, a former student of Wright’s, also has left an indelible mark on Scottsdale’s real estate landscape. All around the Paradise Valley, metropolitan Phoenix, and Scottsdale areas, office buildings, hotels, custom homes, and recreational facilities tout Vernon’s award-winning designs, which he created following his twenty years studying and developing new architecture at Taliesin West. Go enjoy arizona today.
