A charming Mediterranean Villa with gorgeous views of Camelback Mountain

mediterranean villa exterior

Calvis Wyant Luxury Homes designed this charming modern Mediterranean Villa featuring lavish outdoor living areas nestled in the picturesque landscape of Paradise Valley, Arizona. This dwelling was designed for a Midwest family with the intent to tell the story of their Italian heritage and love for history.

Achieving this objective was primarily realized through the rustic charm of rural Mediterranean architecture, characterized by meticulously designed roofs and short spans. A highlight of this dwelling is the way in which it invites you to spend as much time outdoors as you do indoors.
