Silverleaf - Rustic Elegance Recreated

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Sometimes you come across a property that not only astounds you with its beauty, but the craftsmanship stays with you.  This happened for me when a couple of years ago when I was researching dream homes for my blog. Designed by Oz Architects, their Silverleaf  homes are rustic elegance in its finest! Silverleaf in Scottsdale, Arizona is a stunning resort nestled in the McDowell Mountain Preserve.  "Silverleaf is a labor love that took years to cultivate. It is purity, respect and ultimate honor of the desert land rolled into one. Around every corner you find something to surprise and delight the eye. In Silverleaf you find estate sites of a lifetime and neighborhoods refreshingly reminiscent of the romantic era; tree-lined streets, perfectly placed parks, lakeside retreats and porch front properties… all harkening the best of the country’s most prestigious addresses. With a discerning eye for luxury living at its finest, each piece of perfectly chosen land offers superior building envelopes painstakingly developed to preserve and enhance the grandeur of the Scottsdale, Arizona landscape. This is where dream homes of a lifetime and family estates that distinguish your legacy are meant to be built." Silverleaf I was honoured that Don Ziebell from Oz Architects allowed me to showcase his work on my blog, and I am excited to share it with you. Silverleaf, Oz Architect Inc.
